    I Was But The Older I Get The Less I Believe

    I grew up in a family where everything was planned around church and church functions. We were in this church until I was 15. I still considered myself a Christian for years. However as I get older the harder those stories are to reconcile with the way things are here on earth...

    But I Don't Hate Christians Either....

    I am not a Christian.

    I don't believe in God, heaven, hell and Satan. I think all that stuff is delusional. When you talk to God you are just talking to yourself. I hate it when people pray for me. Prayer does nothing. If you want to help me then just ask. Sometimes I think Christians are so...

    I Have Chosen To Not Be A Christian

    I realized that I was NO LONGER a christian just about the time that my mother died of cancer; albeit at a ripe age of 87 but we expected her to live well into her late 90's. She was a lovely woman, person and mother. She became a christian after my sister, myself and our brother...

    I was a very good Christian

    In order to be a Christian you have to believe that Jesus died for our sins and that only through baptism and acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Saviour can a person go to heaven. For starters, I'm not sure that the person we call Jesus actually existed or if he is a composite of...

    OH, that is drawing all kinds of fire because apparently these people had the gumption to put up a zombie nativity. It is kinda freaky, but it does fit in with the Jesus dying on a cross and rising from the dead theme. What I don't get, however, is all these Christian folks...

    There is nothing miraculous about turning bread

    into flesh – cows do it every day. Maybe jesus is a cow? Maybe that’s why the Hindu don’t eat the cows? Of course jesus tells us he is the true vine and later turns wine into blood – what is wine? The blood of the grape. Jesus must be a grape. So what do you think...
