You foolish scientists, evolutionists, secularists, and non-Christians unwisely choose to ignore the Bible. But folks, the Bible is the SOLE truth and the SOLE way to heaven. No way around it. You can't try to distract Peter while you're in front of the heaven door, you'll just have to drop to hell and burn right next to your Satanist and Atheist friends. Turn now or you're dead!
This is much to common and it feels more like a flame war between different brands; the level is extremely low. He is saying that you have to believe in the Bible, because otherwise you will go to hell. But how are we going to believe something without any evidence, are they insane!?
Its understandable that people say they "believe in God" but can a religious person actually even PROVE that he DOES believe in God before he becomes so fired up about preaching all about the bible. Otherwise he's just blowing hot air.
I don't think so... most of them [when confronted with the "prove it" statement that they use on us all the time] get all flustered and either 1. avoid the question while giving you "the stink eye." 2. Answer back with another question, usually one that is accusatory in nature and not meant to be answered. 3. [the nicer ones are more likely to do this] Tell you that "you cannot know that God exists by your senses alone, it is a matter of faith." or 4. Refuse to answer the question and dismiss you as "an idiot who will never understand.
Because of this, it seems clear to me that most religious people don't know how to answer this question.
Lets pretend your right, you don't want to spend an eternity with a guy like me anyway so.... as a servant of the lord, your time would be spent more wisely on converting impressionable, weak-minded folk who need theology for a moral compass, as for us atheists, most of us have an IQ in excess of 125 and have no need for a bearded sky fairy scare us into conformity. 90% of nobel prize laureates are atheist, and yet only .02% of federal prison inmates are atheist. So, as an atheist I must call a spade a spade. "When you understand why you don't believe in any other god, then you will be able to understand why I don't believe in yours."- Christopher Hitchins
I think a good way to discuss this subject is to propose a Grand Test.We will all test our belief or disbelief in the supposed afterlife.Some say I don't know; others I do know; and some say no! At death and all of us will die- some sooner than others - will all get a chance to really test our belief system.If there is a hell or heaven or just the 'blackness of unconsciousness.'
I do believe death is very serious in many respects.It is final whether you are smart or dumb we will die.
Either way we should love and respect each other as fellow human beings.We can exchange ideas,etc.,by simply stating our beliefs without trying to carp or threaten.
