“American Christianity is not well, and there’s evidence to indicate that its condition is more critical than most realize”
We covered Anne Rice’s defection from Christianity last week. Here is an article showing that the end of Christianity is near, because Christianity is filled with some of the most disgusting people on the planet:
Christian activist Ronald J. Sider writes in his book, “The Scandal of the Evangelical Conscience”: “By their daily activity, most ‘Christians’ regularly commit treason. With their mouths they claim that Jesus is their Lord, but with their actions they demonstrate their allegiance to money, sex, and personal self-fulfillment.”
How to explain the Grand Canyon-sized gap between principles outlined in the Gospels and the behavior of believers? Christians typically, and rather lamely, respond that shortcomings of the followers of Jesus are simply evidence of man’s inherent sinfulness.
But if one adheres to the principle of Occam’s razor — that the simplest explanation is the most likely — there is another, more unsettling conclusion: that many people who call themselves Christian don’t really believe, deep down, in the tenets of their faith. In other words, their actions reveal their true beliefs.
In addition, as Rice puts it:
I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life.
This video lays it out in cold, stark terms: “Why does every intelligent Christian disobey Jesus?”
Go ahead Christians, drink poison as the Bible commands. See what happens.
Why would anyone follow a book that tells them to drink poison?
The whole issue of why so many Christians (especially those in the Tea Party) are so bigoted, hateful and unchristian is a separate question that remains unanswered.
