This week we have witnessed the attempted creation of ANOTHER new branch of Christianity. The Episcopalians are splitting into a light and a heavy variety:
Conservatives from the Episcopal Church voted yesterday to form their own branch of Anglicanism in the United States and said they would seek new recognition in the worldwide church because of their growing disenchantment over the ordination of an openly gay bishop and other liberal developments.
The conservatives remain upset about the 2003 ordination of Gene Robinson of New Hampshire, the role of female clergy, the church’s definition of salvation and changes to the main book of prayer.
Why does this prove that God is imaginary? Because if God were real, we could simply ask him and he would tell us what is right and what is wrong. Should people with alternative sexual lifestyles be allowed in the church, or should they be expelled like lepers because they are going to burn in hell for eternity anyway? If God were real, we would all know. Should women be allowed to act as clergy or not? If God were real, we would ask him and he would tell us. What is the definition of salvation… WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF SALVATION???? You don’t even know what the definition of salvation is? That is proof positive that God is imaginary.
To have a “god” that does not answer simple questions like these is an affront to a central tenet of Christianity. In Christianity, God is supposed to act as an absolute moral authority. As this article points out: “God is not arbitrary; He is the source of all life and therefore the source of all truth.” Truth is not arbitrary, or ambiguous, according to Christianity. Yet what we see in the Episcopal church is complete ambiguity on everything. It is impossible to answer even the simplest questions. That ambiguity is occurring because God is imaginary.
The fact is that God, Jesus, Heaven, Hell and all the rest of it are imaginary. The reason why there are a thousand religions and denominations is because God is imaginary. Anyone should be able to see this. If God were real, there would be obvious answers to every question because God would tell us the answers. Thus there would be one denomination and everyone would follow it.
If you would like to learn more about the salvation question – The description of this video says, “Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori clarifies her views on salvation. A partial quote in The New York Times on the subject has upset conservatives.”
Yes, God is imaginary, because the Bishop can make up anything she likes about God, and so can everyone else.
