Proof #13 - Take a look at slavery
You didn't live in those times to justify your irrational statement.
Just like you aren't living in your own time. Go back to your own time! This is not an irrational statement. God is saying in the Torah (the old testament) that slavery is good. People back then thought so. Now, we condemn it. OMG! We're going against the will of God by abolishing slavery... Quick! Make us your slaves..
Let me offer you just this: the Bible was written solely for its time. 2,000 years ago. It no longer holds water today, especially with all the scientific evidence that disqualifies a lot of the Torah, and also parts of the gospels. The gospels were even written as stories were being passed around to different areas at the time. The first to write one was the gospel of luke. It was the most accurate account of Jesus. But not actually written by a guy named luke. Just a story. And the story had an ending, which the author created, which is why we have the telling of the future events just before Jesus died. And, to add insult to injury, Revelation has been scientifically disproven now due to people interpreting it and being wrong. It's fortune-telling. You can apply revelation to anything, and it will seem correct. It's a gross example of this.
Proof #14 - Examine Jesus' miracles
Ever hear of the Shroud of Turin? That was left by jesus.
Yes - it's a cloth that claims to be the same one that was placed over Jesus when he died. The dead sea scrolls being found are also supposed to be a miracle. However, finding lost artifacts that prove someone died or finding lost scrolls doesn't mean it's a miracle of Jesus. It just means it was preserved enough to find it. But, saying that Jesus left behind his head-wrap is totally bogus. His remains decayed separately from the cloth, and the cloth is the only remnant of his death (supposedly). That's like saying 'see - jeremy0 left behind his coffin for all of us to see..' it's a miracle.
Proof #15 - Examine Jesus' resurrection
Jesus is not to appear again until the time of Armageddon. It says so in revelation. Why would you want him to come? I don't want to live through that hellish time if I'm left to stay behind and be tested on my faith.
What crazy book are you reading? Because in the dead sea scrolls, he certainly did supposedly appear again. You should stop reading revelation, seriously. That book makes no real sense. None of you are going to understand it. There will be no armagheddon.
You will never see a time other than during your own life where your 'faith is tested'. There won't be a hellish time full of demons and Satan on this earth. It's completely imaginary. The worst we might get is a fiery death due to global warming or a large asteroid impacting the earth. But at least it should go fast. Why are you all so concerned about things that came from 0BC and not so concerned about things that exist scientifically today?
Again, these guys are controlling you on fear. You don't need to be afraid of the end of time. It's not going to happen unless the earth gets severely damaged. The only thing we need to worry about is taking care of our habitat. Be realistic.
Proof #16 - Contemplate the contradictions
God can tell someone to kill someone for the greater kill. If a murderer killed your daughter and could kill again, would you not kill hi to put him to justice so that he may burn in hell for eternity as the Lord promises for the wicked?
What the hell are you saying now? For 'the greater kill'. Didn't you read the ten commandments telling you not to kill under any circumstance? Didn't you hear Jesus say to do unto others as you would have done to yourselves? That was his 11th commandment. The golden rule.
Some people have a change of heart after someone gets killed. What about those people?
And is it really justice that you would say this person also deserves, since he killed once, to be killed 100000000000000000000000000..... .... times over and over again in every way of dying possible? All the time? You would seriously feel comfortable with a 'promise' like that? Who the hell deserves such a punishment? Obviously you've never been through much in life, or else you wouldn't have said that..
Proof #17 - Think about Leprechauns
There is proof God exists you just don't seek. Stop repeating yourself you're starting to sound like someone who has no other defense other than to repeat.
The reason he repeats this is because it's logical. Believing in leprechauns is exactly the same as believing in any God. You have never witnessed either for yourself. Yet, you think that it exists. We have physics so we can understand things that we can't actually go to and study. And we're getting damn good at it. But, at least we know for a fact that the things we have studied exists. This is why he says this. Because Santa and God are two things you have never witnessed, yet you believe in either one at some point in your life because you are told that it is true..
Proof #19 - Notice that you ignore Jesus
Jesus means to be good to others. If they need help help them. He doesn't expect you to be perfect.
For inatnce, if I had 30 millions dollars in my back account. I'd give away 20 and only keeep ten. That's what Jesus means. Don't be greedy.
Wrong again. Jesus was furious over riches. Ten million is quite a sum. Yeah, I can keep onto that knowing that I could have started a business with it and helped out hundreds of people to live better lives. Jesus told a rich man who said he had no sin to give all he had to the poor. That meant everything. That's what's not greedy. The fact is, we need the money we need to survive. But, at least you are saying that you'll give away 2/3 of it.. That's the equivalent of Bill Gates giving away 2/3 of his 50bln dollars, so I won't argue with you there..
Proof #20 - Notice your church
I don't. I pay attention to my faith. For some abuse the power of The Lord.
How do you go about abusing the power of the Lord? Do I somehow wield his strength for him and bend it to my own will when he's not looking?
Yes, notice your church. Notice how damn rich they are. Look at all the huge structures and expensive stuff. Jesus said 'you won't find me in a church. The kingdom of heaven is inside you and all around you. Lift a stone, and you will find me. split a wood, and you will find me there.' In this, he is saying that you will find spirituality anywhere you look. He said, you came from him, everything proceeded and goes back to him. In that, he meant that everything is the kingdom - his kingdom. Why do I need a church to remember the sabbath? Why do I need to pay people to tell me about the Bible when I can read books myself?
Proof #21 - Understand Jesus' Core Message
Would you give the light of day to someone who doesn't love you.....no, no, and NO!!!!
You have to worship for that's how we are able to show God we love him.
I worship God in my own ways. And no, I don't require you to love me in order for me to show you the 'light of day'. I would give it to you anyway, even though you would probably kick me for it. Worshipping God doesn't show that you love Him. Loving Him shows that you love Him. Being terrified of Him shows that you are terrified...
Proof #22 - Count all the people God wants to murder
He's getting rid of the evil.
If your only answer to rid yourselves of evil is to kill, you are sorely again, mistaken. Let's test this theory. I hate fags. (Not really, sorry for using you guys as a point). So, let's get rid of evil by sending all the faggots to an island and then bombing the island with a nuke. That'll get rid of everyone I hate.
Ok, not really, because more homosexuals will be born later. Just like any other type of human will come about to be again. The island trick is a farce. It doesn't actually get rid of anything. it just temporarily gives you satisfaction. I would say that is your problem. That it gives you satisfaction knowing the people you are afraid of are dying. Maybe you'll get the satisfaction in heaven when you are living in peace knowing that I'm suffering untold deaths at every waking hour of the day? Maybe you can live in peace and satisfaction knowing that.
Killing is not the only answer to evil. But who am I to say that? I'm just an advanced form of bacteria..
Proof #23 - Listen to the Doxology
One obvious question to ask after reading the church's statement is this: If all blessings "flow from God, then why are his blessings so amazingly unbalanced? Why are tens of thousands of children dying of starvation every day on this planet [ref], while Colonial Baptist Church is blessed with such wealth?"
Maybe God wants you to bitch about so you can do something because obviously the pople God wanted to do that turned their backs.
Sure, I'm sure that all the starving children over in Africa just decided hey, let's turn our backs on God. Well, they actually believe in a different God, but why not the Bhuddists? Maybe they had such a different religion that they were punished by God? What ridiculousness.
Maybe you just can't face the truth and realize that you're own pastor is a rich man, wealthy enough to stave off any economic disaster, while you yourself are poor and diluted by it.
Proof #24 - Ask why religion causes so many problems
Simply because everyone wants to be right. Grant it, I want Jesus to come so I can stick it to the Jews but I know it's wrong so I respect peopels faith and we they try to say and impose shit on me of theirs the holy spirit within me gets hurt and I defend.
Sure, I just want to 'stick it to the Jews'. Let me say this - if you are hurt by people imposing shit on you, why not be mad at your pastor? He's imposing more shit on you than anyone else..
Proof #25 - Understand evolution and abiogenesis
Explain me this. Tell me why all humans who are vegitatrians don't turn back into apes after generations of them? Because it's BS. You want evolution....
What created the sun? It wasn't just there? and if an explosion happen, where the fuck did all the organisms come free. Doesn't scince say extreme heat in the sun kill ALL ORGANIMS CAUSE NOTHING CAN SURVIVE IT?!!!!!!
You can't go back in time. Therefore, you can't reverse evolution. You are never going to see a man turn back into an ape. It's just no longer in the dna sequence. The dna sequence is supposed to advance.
The sun was created because that was the chemistry that was left behind while our galaxy was forming. There are many, many suns in our galaxy. They happen to form at the center of solar systems. A planet that is akin to the sun in our solar system (same chemical makeup) is Saturn. It is a magnificent planet. It allows life on earth to evolve, due to being the protector against most asteroids. we're actually hoping that it picks up the asteroid that's supposed to smack us in 2039. Organisms exist because the conditions just happen to be right. It's a million-year collision of chemistry that eventually formed an isotopic miracle - bacteria. Bacteria was able to reproduce. Then, all live became more and more advanced as dna sequences modified and became useful enough to survive in its environment due to adaptation.
Proof #26 - Notice that the Bible's author is not "all-knowing"
Because you have to go look in the archives of the Vatican for me detail.
I'll give you something in the archives of the Vatican. The writings of the end of time by Nostrodamus. he predicted we would have a choice. i believe we have made that choice already. he referred to one male making the decision. He was in fact, reading the stars. But, even that was a bunch of mumbo-jumbo, because it was still fortune-telling, and anything that can be applied to it gets applied to it, and it's 'amazing'. He thought it important enough at the time to give his 'knowledge' to the Vatican, and they kept it in their archives for a long time.
If the Bible's author was 'all-knowing', then they could have not hidden from you all the things you would ever want to know. It would have told us all about dinosaurs, other planets, black holes, heck - why should we have had to do research on all this stuff if the Bible could have told us? it would have saved us tons of work..
Proof #27 - Think about life after death
I do and it's scary. I'm afriad of burning in hell for all eternity.
Yes!!! You have just told the entire story. You are afraid to leave your religion because they told you that you would burn in hell forever. You're scared of dying. This is, in fact, the #1 barrier to Christianity. You're afraid. They have enacted absolute control over you because of this. You will never leave them because of your fear. Let me be your strength. Let me guide you out of the darkness. All you need to do is be a good person. Can't you see that nobody is damned? Jesus made it quite clear. I'll make it clearer. None of you, will ever be damned. Not a single one. I can promise you that.
Proof #28 - Notice how many gods you reject
There's only one. As you said before, he has different names but he's one in the same.
Then why don't you believe in the Jewish God? Or the Muslim God? if they are all the same, then you must be a Christian, Jew, Muslim, Mormon, Bhuddist, Hindu, Greek, Pegan, and Ying-yang.. They are all the same God - you need to get to reading some books....
Proof #29 - Think about Communion
It's just a symblosim not to be taken literal. Jesus means in heart and soul.
Oh yes, communion can be taken literal. Here's what Jesus said:
'Here is my body. It has been given up for you, so that sins may be forgiven. do this in memory of me.'
'This is my blood. It was shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven. do this in memory of me.'
But, here's what he also says:
'Not one of you among you is righteous. No, not a single one.'
'The unrighteous are drunk off of the blood of the righteous man.' He related those to demons
Jesus was said to be righteous in every way. He only did what was good.
Now, why would Jesus have you perform a ritual, proving to yourself that he thought of you as a damned demon? That is very, very strange indeed. maybe he wasn't thinking clearly when he had you do this? Take it that literal. That's exactly what it means.
It doesn't matter if you're drunk off of his blood from his spirit or his actual body. You are still drunk off the blood of the righteous. And he said himself, he found you all drunk, and when you shake off your wine, then you'll listen...
