I feel sorry for the Christians who truly try to live out their faith in the sincerest way possible, because they are hampered by judgmental and angry hypocrites who do nothing but nitpick.
When Jesus Christ ordered the Great Commission, He told His disciples to go out into the world and make disciples of all nations. He didn’t tell them to berate other people who doubted or to condemn others.
He condemned those who condemned.
Christian A said : “Let’s see, when Christ set up his universal soup kitchen and free hospitals funded by “federal government” I don’t think he asked for “insurance cards” because, actually, he allowed himself to be crucified before any of that happened.”
Excuse me, but it seems to me that Christ did have universal soup kitchens-and I can prove that in two passages: the feeding of the 4,000 in Mark 8:1-21 and the feeding of the 5,000 in Matthew 14:13-21. Now, if this person wants to discuss why the federal government must be involved, it’s only because those like him judge the poor rather than help them find a job which pays them a living wage.
Oh, that also explains the parable of the workers, which is found in Matthew 20:1-16. The men who lacked opportunity were paid the same as the men who had worked all day.
That’s what Trump voters say. They blame the poor for their problems, but refuse to address lack of opportunity. Well, both issues were addressed in this parable.
Christ also healed the blind man for free, didn’t He?
How about Lazarus? Did He strike Lazarus dead because Mary and Martha didn’t have any money?
Christian number 2 understands that my faith is a fabulous disaster because of those like Christian number 1. She has her own battles to fight and she knows what it’s like to be in her own Garden of Gethsemane. She has never condemned me for my doubts-probably because she’s had many herself.
She is the way a Christian ought to be.
I warn those who condemn people like me and people like her that 2 Peter 3:4 is just around the corner, and I know that because this nation has been taken over by hypocritical Christian fundamentalists like Republican Tim Murphy from Pennsylvania, who pleaded with his mistress to have an abortion-and this fuck.er has a 100 % rating from the Family Research Council, according to the Huffington Post
Sex isn’t the issue. Hypocrisy is-and conservatives are full of it (and in many ways).
People are going to have sex. Yes, marriage is the ideal setting. However, birth control is mandatory, because you are your brother’s and sister’s keeper, Cain.
I have to say that religious fundamentalists make me laugh so hard at times that I almost lose control of my bladder.
A reader sarcastically asked: “”The Christians have murdered more people in the history of the world than anyone else.”
Oh, is that Settled Science?”
I began my response with: “That’s established history-something which you are trying to rewrite…”
Let’s take a good look at the facts. Let’s add these numbers and see what we get.
I’m going to have to get my calculator for this one.
Excluding the Burning Times and the Children’s Crusade, it appears that about 7,356,000 were murdered in the name of Christ. However, I am reminded of that verse John 16:2. While Christian fundamentalists might defend themselves by saying that this verse was aimed at the early Church, which was already being persecuted, heads became tails.
Hey, I’ve got an idea! Let’s see what happened in the Western Hemisphere! Oh, boy!
Wait a second! This is more like ‘Oh, shit’, because there is no way anyone can keep track of the body count-it’s that bad (source: http://articles.exchristian.net/2002/10/how-many-people-have-been-killed-by.php).
What about in the Western Hemisphere?
Dennis Stannard, who is an expert on genocide, asserted that whites (Europeans since 1492) murdered and displaced approximately 70 million to 100 million native peoples in a span of only eighty years.
I have now truly lost count.
Native knowledge has been lost because of the book burning of 1577, which took place in Spain. I wonder who else it was who was into book burning. Oh, yeah! That guy!
Remember that Adolf Hitler was in power for only 12 years, and you will begin to see the depravity of this crime. Hitler was evil enough, but imagine if those “Americans” (and we all know conservatives are anything but) that believed we should have stayed out of World War II had gotten their way. That genocide would continue to this very day.
The saddest thing is that this continues today, as Christian organizations oppose any kind of birth control. What does this lead to? Poverty and starvation.
Many Christians tell me that people should not have children that they cannot afford, but I simply respond with 1 Corinthians 7:9, in which Paul told people to marry rather than to burn with passion and that married couples needed to have sex regularly so that neither partner would be tempted to cheat.
To conservatives who “attempt” to read this article, don’t hate me because I know the Bible better than you do, start living as Christ told you to by showing mercy and compassion. Unfortunately, you voted for Donald Trump, so I think I know which side of Christ you’ll be when Matthew 25:31-46 happens.
I may be a sinner, too, but at least I’m not a hypocrite. My conscience is clear.
