You Want To Know Why This Happens? Because Christians Bully People.

are you trolls? what does the word CRITICIZE mean? it means that you're calling attention to the FLAWS in something.

This group BY DEFINITION Was for Atheist and I havE LETTERS From it's CREATORS about that.

I'm not sure what the hell the people who come here pretending the bible is PERFECT have in mind but they have certainly misinterepted the meaning

if I am vicious and critical of christianis and I want to bash the bible it is simply because I have been an atheist I've gone so far away from the church that I'm totally black inside to it and would rather burn that worship their lord as stated in their stupid book and yet somehow they still find me and pray for me and try to send their minions to me like I'm a lost sheep in need of some hole in my soul to be filled.

The reason this bothers me is that while there is no way in hell i'm ever going back it is clear and plain as day to anyone at all that I still think about jesus quite a bit.

The pain I've been subjected to is the routine exposure of my lack of belief to the harloting of minister's daughters because they believe through a relationship with HER I can come to know GOD (This is the most cynical  attitude ever)

Christ did not reward his followers based on who sought the most glory but those who were invigorated by his messaghe for the sake of the betterment of the world alone. He seemed to have recongized those who wanted status and authority wtihin society but instead what the church has become is an instituion that likes to rub it in the face of secular society that the divorce rate is so high etc and try to tempt us back into the church by way of promising functional relationships through "knowing their god"

Quite frankly jesus would be disgusted in all of you people who feel it's your mission in life to convert people to the church rather than love someone. The most important commandment was to love you neighbor as yourself and to love god with all of your heart, well frankly your relationship with jesus and god are between you and them why do you feel you need to bring me into it? oh yes. I understand now. Because you're after recongition and glory. You're a hypocrit.

Matthew 6:6
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.

if you ever wanted me to come to know your GOD through you perhaps you would have realized the power of your EXAMPLE was what would sway people but your relationships are almost entirely conditional as ot wither or not a person believes or not. You see me attacking you left and right but you don't see the side of me that is TRULY troubled and VICTIMIZED by this because you're attacking me somewhere where I've STRUGGLED to be strong to

I've had to harden my heart because of you. Because you are too petty to LOVE someone unless they accept your lord.

 

If jesus is coming back he's going to have a LOT of nasty things to say about all of you. You think I'm the one that's judged you but I don't judge, I just see things how they are.

my desire for  SLOW Escalation in sexuality even AFTER I left the church has been exploited seven ways from sunday by you people and the feral animal that is now bashing you is someone that feels GENUINELY victimized by your behavior

 

Your daughters are not "For sale" based on  wither someone believes or not.

Faith is a PRIVATE Thing and if I have any of it I refuse to "Wear that crown" simply because I don't want to be seen as you are. ever.

After reading this story, it seems that you are a person of faith... Just not of "religion". If you are an atheist, I have no problem with that.

sometimes I think only atheist/agnostic can have "faith" it's strange how only we seem to have realized jesus for what he was. http://hisbloodatones.blogspot.com/2011/01/did-jesus-take-our-shame.html

you know I know that I have "faith" I have a queer sort of faith and I have NO idea how I obtained it without certainty but I've been thinking about it A LOT over the years.

It seems to me most christians missed the point.

The Faith of the Centurion

5 When Jesus had entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, asking for help. 6 “Lord,” he said, “my servant lies at home paralyzed, suffering terribly.”

7 Jesus said to him, “Shall I come and heal him?”

8 The centurion replied, “Lord, I do not deserve to have you come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I myself am a man under authority, with soldiers under me. I tell this one, ‘Go,’ and he goes; and that one, ‘Come,’ and he comes. I say to my servant, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”

10 When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, “Truly I tell you, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith. 11 I say to you that many will come from the east and the west, and will take their places at the feast with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven. 12 But the subjects of the kingdom will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

13 Then Jesus said to the centurion, “Go! Let it be done just as you believed it would.” And his servant was healed at that moment.

Actually, to consider something critically is to examine it, to see where is stands and where it falls. It is not just to find fault with something, although faults are typically exposed in a critical analysis. A thing's strengths can be brought out as well. So, a critical discussion will examine both sides.

For something to be considered true, it must be falsifiable. That is, it can be tested, and there can be posited a condition in which the thing could be shown to be false. The thing discussed would be tested against this condition, real or theoretical. Something that is not falsifiable is a waste of time to discuss. For those who believe that a god cannot be shown to not exist, there is no discussion. They would not accept any condition where the non-existence of god could be demonstrated. So we move on to something else.
