An apology from a Christian

Actually she is now an ex-Christian, looking back at her days as a Christian and apologizing to humanity for her words and deeds as a Christian:

Ex-Christian, now Atheist blogger apologizes for being a “Huge shithead for all those years.”

This apology should be read by every Christian and Muslim. It perfectly summarizes the vast problems with Christianity, and the reasons why Christianity (as well as all flavors of the Islamic faith) must die.

    “They left us, but they were never really with us. If they had been, they would have stuck it out with us, loyal to the end. In leaving, they showed their true colors, showed they never did belong.” I Jn 2:10

    I do apologize for my arrogance and haughtiness during my time in atheism.

    Poor Bishop! To have allowed the mysterious, unfounded promises of everlasting condemnation to take charge of a life set free by knowledge and understanding is a very, very sad thing to hear of. Now you have nothing; no self respect, no imagination and, though it is the very essence of what you seek, no god!

    I have been set free by the blood of Jesus Christ. I have never been more free, more joyful or more satisfied with life. I never knew it could be this good. You can really be born again bornagain if you repent and turn your life to the one who gives real life.

    How might one “turn your life to” a thing that never responds to or interacts with you in any way? How does silence “give real life”?

    Good question. He responds through the spirit and consequently why I have no doubt of His existence. “Those who worship me must worship me in spirit and truth”. When Jesus departed He promised the Holy Spirit would come to indwell believers who belonged to Him. That is why someone who truly has been born again would never fall away.

    “Why won’t God heal amputees?”
    Okay to get the answer to this question you must first come to know why you’re an amputee, cut from your creator! You see our Creator is a spirit and the true meaning of a spirit is that it is a teaching! For example, if I told you there is a spirit standing in the corner of your house right now and looking at you. The truth is you will never see it or even know that it is there at all… unless you believe what I’m telling you.
    Question: if you believe what I am telling you to be true, would the spirit exist for the rest of the world? No way, unless we tell them about my vision and they believe us, there is no way they would ever know that he is there. Okay now you should know that anyone opening their mouth and speaking a word is giving birth to a spirit if the one whom you are speaking too believes you than the spirit exists, but if he does not believe what you are saying, then your teaching does not exist.
    OK, let’s call a spirit… the spoken word or we can call it S-word for short! Now we should know that when the Bible speaks of a sword protruding out of one’s mouth it is a teaching. In this light we know that our Creator’s sword is his spoken word! Knowing this it stands to reason that a double edged sword is words that read both ways! Example: the people who lived before us our forefathers are the devil.
    Our creator says that he will not share his glory (being able to give and sustain life) with any graven image. Okay let us see what graven image means. The word graven is a past particle of grave, and an image is mankind, because of his being made in the image of the Creator. So then a graven image is a man in the grave, and our Creator says he will not share his glory (being able to give and sustain life) with him.
    So why do we keep looking back and digging up the graven images asking them to tell us what we need to do to be saved. I mean after all if they had any means of life giving knowledge they would be here with us today would they not? So then really of what benefit, is the dead to the living?
    Now you should know why the knowledge of a good God fighting an evil Devil is really the forbidden fruit that our Creator warned us not to eat of in order that we would not die. This is the very reason the Gods on this Earth in the kingdom of mankind has no power to heal anyone because they do not exist except in the teachings of mankind.
    Our Creator is one and has nothing to do with man’s knowledge of a good God and an evil Devil. This is why it is written that he would say: “get away I have never known you your workers of lawlessness!” Now you should know that if you wish to have an amputee healed he must stop being cut off from his Creator and he must return to him and stand in front of him one-on-one in the shoes of Adam before he began to eat of the knowledge of good and evil in order to be healed.
    Try this test him out please, and see if he will not pour out his Spirit his teaching up on you people until there is no more want. Returned to him and he will return to you with loving kindness and mercy.

    I can unequivocally state that God exists. I am not simple, nor naïve. I am a law student who is on the brink of finishing my degree. I have seen miracles both in my life and that of my family’s. I have experienced myriad of things all linking to God.

    When I was younger and my nana died, I visited Heaven in a dream. I saw three thrones and I sat on Jesus lap. He was wearing a blue gown. My nana was on the right side of him sat down. I remember the gates of heaven. They were originally adorned with jewels albeit they suddenly turned into smarties (as back then I adored them).

    I also vividly remember walking down to meet nana and Jesus and on each side people were watching me. Each and everyone was dressed in white. My nana said, “..tell your mum I will see her soon’. I was 2years old. I still remember the dream to this day. I had not been taught about God then thus I had not merely made it up. This is but one of my experiences.

    God is not a religion. Satan created religion in the bid to turn people away from God. Even if you do not believe in God, why not just try to say hello to him in a genuine pray one night? Approve/disprove entrenched thinking. God has answered many of my prayers. I have been through an incredible amount and on some occasions I felt overwhelmed. However, through such darkness, God brought light and it was from that suffering that I became a new person.

    Scientists in Sweden have undertaken tests that have shown that when a person dies, their body weighs slightly less, taking into account other bodily losses post death. Thus, they concluded that the weight loss had to be a departed soul.
    Also, an astronaut who was originally a stout atheist came down from a mission and declared he was now a believer in God. Why? Because he saw something that made him conclude that God existed.
    God is a loving, wonderful man. If you take the time to get to know him, I can assure you the benefits are everlasting.

    I find it interesting how there are soo many sites etc dedicated to atheism. They are certainly passionate about turning people away from God. You must have to ask yourself why? Why such passion? Normally such passion is reserved for when you know something does exist and you are vehement about turning people away from God before it is too late. Please have a think about that one….
    I recommend that you read Rick Warrens’ A Purpose Filled Life’ as it has helped me considerably.

    Oh and I am a trainee lawyer, thus I do deploy the logical side of me and I still very much believe in God.

    God bless you all.

    “Satan created religion in the bid to turn people away from God.”
    Young lady, I am searching for answer what „satan“ is for some time, and nobody gives me stisfactory answer.
    Not to misslead you, I will tell you immediately that I am an atheist, but always ready to learn something new.

    What is this story about „satan“?
    It seems to me that it (he, she?) is a parallel god, just the evil one. Looking that way, christianity is a polytheistic religion: there is one „good“ god („regular“ god), and one „evil“ god („satan“).
    If the main atribute of a divinity is to be „allmighty“, it seems to me that „god“ and „satan“ have the same power, consequently they both must be gods.
    I think so beacause the „evil“ and the „good“ are prity evenly distributed on earth, both geografically and historically. I would even say that „evil“ prevails, that leads to conclusion that satan is even more powerful than “good” god.
    Another thing which leads me to conclusion that “satan” is a parallel god, is the fact that on many places a “struggle” of god against “satan” is mentioned.
    Why should an “allmighty” struggle at all? he was powerful enough to create universe!
    Why doesn’t he just “cancel satan’?
    If he is not able to, he is then not allmighty, and it is obvious that 2 parallel gods exist.
    If he does not want to, than he is not as good as stated.
    He must be an masochist too, and masochism is not something I would prefere to see by somebody I have chosen to lead me.
    Somebody explain me the mistery of „satan“! (Not „history“, I have read the Bible!)

    Bishop #5 – How does he “respond through the spirit”? What does that mean?

  10. on 29 Jan 2010 at 1:28 pm 10.Bishop said …

    You might want to take a look at Ephesians 2:1-9. To be short those who are without Christ are dead in their spirit. So, it is like attempting to tell a dead man what it is like to be alive. When God convicts, we repent and He enters into our life through Holy Spirit, you don’t need to ask anyone how it works.

    Does this spirit talk to you? Does it animate you like a puppeteer animates a puppet? What?

  12. on 29 Jan 2010 at 1:53 pm 12.Dineo said …

    Severine, do you realise if God had to destroy Satan, he’ll have to wipe you out too? Satan was created by God as a spirit, and spirtits do not die,they live forever, that is a rule set by God himself and he will not go against it.

    However, God originally created hell for Satan and his demons to burn there eternally (hell was never meant for humans!!) when they rebelled against him in the beginning, but the time is still to come when Satan and his demons will be thrown in the lake of fire for all enternity.

    Satan knows his time is running out and he wants to take as many people with him to hell as possible that’s why the world is full of people who follow him, because the Bible says those who follow Satan will join him in the lake of fire. At the moment, Satan is in charge of hell and he tortures everyone who goes there when they die, but in the end, he will join them when God himself finally decides to destroy this earth with every sinful human being in it once and for all because Satan has taken control of the entire earth, that’s why it is so evil.

    God is taking his time because he wants that by the time he destroys the earth, at least most of the humans would have repented and do not need to be destroyed along with the devil Satan.

    The reason why God is taking so long to destroy Satan is because he is giving the human race some time to repent and turn away from Satan and embrace his loving kindness.

    That is what the Bible says,God does not want anyone to perish and that’s why he is buying time for your sake.However, if today God decides time has run out, you and everyone else who has not acknowledged him will have to join Satan in the lake of fire.

    Don’t think just because this world keeps spinning God is not counting the hours, he is, and once time runs out for you and everyone else who has never acknowledged him, it will be too late.

    He has given man free-will, the choice between choosing him over evil. It is unfortunate for those who have died without giving their lives to God, and who are wishing they could come back to Earth and make things right with him, you however are toying with the opportunity you still have.

    You, Severine and everyone else who refuses to accept him are living on borrowed time…and God is not a cruel God as most of you say he is because origianlly hell was created for Satan but the human race has decided to follow him and therefore God concluded that they should join him in hell because there can be no sin in heaven. Fair enough…

    Really Dineo? God is not cruel but he let’s presumably millions go to hell? And how is “obey me or burn” free will? If I put a gun to your head and said “give me all your money or I’ll blow your brains out” would that constitute as free will, because by your “logic” it would. I find it both comical and disheartening that you are so indoctrinated that you take a bronze age myth that literally. It is absolutely amazing that you will spit in the face of science, a method that has brought you so much, just so you can fell special about yourself. I’m glad you wish to save me from your sick, sadistic fantasies of free thinkers such as myself getting tortured for an eternity, but I’ll have to pass.

    wow you summed it up pretty good, Dineo.but how can you explain to a non believer the love of Christ? and also God has no equal, I think that the devels equal would be the high ranked angels, definitely not God. and Christian Girl I really liked your heaven story, but i do not know if you want to call God a man as you said”Wonderful man” because God is pure and we are not.

    God does not just let you go to hell, everyone choses their own path. He tells you in his word how to live and respect others. If the 10 commandments were followed by everyone, the world would be a better place. If I gave you a gun and told you not to put it to your head and blow your brains out but you did anyway, Your death would not be because of me, it would be because of your own actions, the path you chose to take.
