Prove you took time to read anything on this site with the exception of where to send an email.

Must be something wrong with Jesus then.  I keep hearing that Jesus loves you, me, everybody.  So He loved Hitler, He loves the ISIS people beheading people, He loves the father who killed his 5 children the other day.  What is wrong with Jesus?  He made this mess and still loves all of us?  I think He needs counseling.

I looked. Same old same old. Version #118. Yet another version of christianity, offered up as the One True Religion despite how it differs from other churches and sects.

You didn't inspire me, you didn't comfort me, you didn't scare me, you didn't enlighten me. Nor did you offer any promises that you can keep. You speak as if you know when the most you can actually be doing is guessing. And poorly at that.

If your god happens to be real, its funny that the guy you worship is also the guy that made it necessary for you to offer the site in 18 languages. Its funny that the guy you worship is the one, because of the language thing, that is keeping you from reaching so many, like  those that speak only Swedish or Swahili, Jin or Japanese, Polish or Pashto.

Good luck with this stuff. As with all fruitless efforts, you're going to need it.

Please understand that I'm being serious, here. I am honestly not mocking you when I say, let your god demonstrate his existence and reveal something only I (and the presumably all-knowing creator of the universe) could know. He could send me an email, make a physical letter appear in front of me, whatever.

Supposedly my immortal soul is at stake here; if that matters to your god, then he should know the specific animal I'm thinking of and the name I gave it. If that information appears before me, in whatever form, before I post this, I'll visit your site.

Time's up.

As god is a public entity then surely that would require a robust and open competitive-tendering process weighted to ensure that smaller deities had a chance and to prevent any single god creating a monopoly?

Regarding the page about homosexuality[1]:

Now you may think that I am some type of lunatic spitting out fire and brimstone, but the truth of the matter is: it doesn't make any difference what you think about me. The question is, what do you think about Jesus Christ? Where do you stand with Him? Don't you know that Jesus bled and died on the Cross for your sins? Do you realize that you may be getting away with sin now, but one day you will stand before an holy God in Judgement? And that holy God's name is Jesus Christ.

Here's what I think:

The blood between me and my lesbian sister is much thicker than the blood Jesus supposedly shed for her sins. I want no part of his plan if he is so concerned with what two consenting and loving individuals do in privacy.

Do they have a page for every single sin listed in the Bible? If not, they're not promoting Jesus -- they're promoting their own stereotypes of others.

Hey, "Seafox," could you explain why it is that "holy" (when used as an adjective for your god) can be replaced with words like "vicious," "tyrannical," "sadistic," and other synonyms for malevolence, and it still makes sense?  For example:

Quote
Do you realize that you may be getting away with sin now, but one day you will stand before an [evil] God in Judgement? And that [vindictive] God's name is Jesus Christ.

I see it all the time.  Whenever somebody like you wants to boast of Yahweh's everlasting fiery concentration camp, they always point to the "fact" that Yahweh is "holy" as the reason he wants to torture billions of people for eternity.

Quote

Let's reverse this, shall we?  Forget about Jesus for the moment; he's not emailing us, since he's either imaginary or too chickenshit to deliver his threats in person.  You are the one that matters here and now, since you're the one that's here to be communicated with.  Why do you think that the torture of billions of people for eternity is such a wonderful thing?  Would you do it yourself, if Jesus gave you the choice whether to send people to Hell forever, or not?  Or what about a merely mundane fiery torture, like burning a "witch" or a mystic like Giordano Bruno at the stake?  Would you do that as their punishment for getting the wrong answers on your Celestial Quiz?

Do join us, I would love to read your answers.

This isn't middle school. If Jesus loves me, I'd much prefer to here it from him directly.

No. I feel no obligation to "return the favour" by reading your stuff. I wasn't interested in the first place, and after reading Emily's post I see no need to read anything else you've written at seafox.com. I already know I'll find it ... distasteful.
