Well, I gotta be honest here, that pretty much proves the bible more, and Gods existence, more than it disproves it. All that shows is that Christians fall short of Gods standards. Christians have become separated, protestants, Lutherans, catholics, all these categories do nothing but weaken Christianity. I mean, look at it! its a chink in the armor you so “humorously” exposed. The bible says that all Christians are part of the body of Christ. Separation is not good. If the church was unified, as one body, it wouldn’t be subject to these kinds of attacks. but, its not, and we have no one to blame, but ourselves.
All you proved by this, is that Christians fall short of Gods standards. and with the state of the modern Church, i couldn’t agree more. but, to be clear:
Christianity, is not a religion. its a personal relationship with Christ. No, that does not mean you can just throw the rules out the window. The rules don’t earn you the salvation. But with salvation, should come a new heart, that strives to be better, and live for Christ.
When we loose sight of that, and focus more on labels, thats when the kind of hypocrisy showed in the video above, occurs.

“Christianity, is not a religion. its a personal relationship with Christ.”
Not a religion? Um, you might want to look up the definition.
This is neat. Unfortunately appears to be plagiarized from an Emo Phillips comedy routine. Emo Philips, a marvelously idiosyncratic standup performed at the hasty pudding, was on Dr. Katz and Home Movies, and juggles a trombone.
Please credit him for his material.

Exactly, Christ said to follow Him, not a particular religion. I like to blow the atheist mind when I agree with them on this one. Where do they go next?
Of course I always like to point out atheism is a religion and to short their argument with the Buddhism card.

I suppose non-stamp collecting is a hobby?
I guess you could say secular humanism is a religion, but then you would have to consider every life philosophy a religion too.
Great detailed information, I just saved you on my google reader.

And you call Christianity stupidity? No Christian would push another off a bridge for a difference of belief or for any reason for that matter. This was just a cheap shot at religion and honestly just plain childish. It’s like having an argument with a school aged bully who ran out of scientific facts to prove their theory so they start a barrage of mockery… Priceless!

“No Christian would push another off a bridge”, huh? Well, actually they’ve done much worse things to each other (The Inquisition, anybody? Witch hunts?) and they are still attacking and murdering each other (in Ireland, for example).

# 4 Boz “I like to blow the atheist” I am sure that is true, but do you get many takers? Personally, I can’t imagine taking you up on it; the act would likely be on par with your intellect.
All the others are trying to sculpt an after-the-fact definition of Christian in the same way Hitler gets left out ( or maybe it was his hate of the vuvuzela ).
