your videos [#174]
« on: August 07, 2008, 02:03:59 AM »

I think your videos are sick and untrue. All you have to do to become a christian is ask God into your heart. He saved you from certain death through Jesus dying on the cross and his reserection. He conquered death so we may have life. Do not reject him! Once you are his he reveals himself to you. He shows you all the anwers to those stupid questions in your video. I could answer all ten of them if I had tried to. I am sad you have turned so far away from God but it is not too late!

Most of us here were former, devout Christians.  Some were even ministers, missionaries, and the like.  We asked God for faith.  He said no.
If we come together and do not fight over religion, class and borders then we hold the key to a peaceful world. There are two possible futures in store; either a March of power and greed or a March of a unified human race.

I gave up following any religion which boasts human sacrifice and cannibalism. 

Please stop by and answer the ten questions for us.

Thinking does not always equate to reality.

My heart is a muscle that pumps blood. Why would your god want to inhabit one of my muscles?

Odd, but the grave yards are full of Christians. In fact, many churches have graveyards right behind them!

Quote
He conquered death so we may have life.

Nope, he died. How can you conquer death if you're dead?

Quote
Do not reject him!

Where is he? I can't see or hear him, so how can you reject something that is not there?

Quote
Once you are his he reveals himself to you.

Wait, how can you accept something that is not already revealed?

Quote
He shows you all the anwers to those stupid questions in your video.

Because goodness knows his followers do such a poor job providing the answers.

Yet you didn't. Why even bother to make the statement then?

Quote
I am sad you have turned so far away from God but it is not too late!

Which direction is he? East, west?

Seriously, you aren't really sad. You've got your "get out of hell free" card so its all good.
If you are following God why can I still see you?

sorry, been there done that.  No response from God. 

So, why didn't you try to answer the questions.  hint, look at other posts in the mail bag before wasting time repeating the same things over and over. 

BTW, why is your deity the right one?  Can you give me evidence that makes him any more real than say, Odin, Vishnu, Zeus, Ra, Tezcatlipoca, etc?

Is there some reason why Jesus didn't pay the same price for sin that everybody else has to pay? 
Sin that supposedly he saved us all from?

Supposedly, he was without sin.

Nevertheless, the idea that the whole crucifixion thing was payment for all the sins of everybody who ever lived and ever would live (at least hypothetically, if absolutely EVERYBODY accepted Jesus) is pretty hard to swallow.

I mean, he's a god, and he knows he's a god, and he's going to be resurrected (which he also knows, being a god). So, as Julia Sweeny points out, "Jesus had a bad weekend for our sins."

What was the big sacrifice again?
