Two things happened this morning that made me want to hop on here and type up something blasting Christianity once again…and it’s sad that this shit happens daily.
FIRST THING - I check Facebook this morning and read someone posting the lame ass ‘copy/paste” if you’re ______ is in heaven. Well, based on the Christian handbook (The Bible), your loved ones are NOT in heaven, but chilling in the ground and waiting on judgment day.
1 Corinthians 15:51-53
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
These verses tell us that the dead shall be raised and changed….basically to a spiritual form to face final judgment.
Now, why would your loved ones need to be raised from the dead to face final judgment if they are already in heaven? Did God let them in on the secret early, let them get a preview of heaven? This is just one (of many) facts from the Bible that Christians don’t agree with, so they don’t teach it and basically teach what the people WANT to hear instead of what is actually there.
SECOND THING - The Texas Board of Education adopts a new social studies and history guideline. Basically, a board (mostly made up of Christian Republicans) is playing politics with education and trying to push their agendas…which is just another way to brainwash kids into growing up both Christian and Republican.
The problem is that the textbooks that Texas uses are used through most of the country.
One thing that was trying to get changed is using B.C.E - C.E instead of B.C - A.D. Currently, what we use is based on fictional stories from the Bible. B.C.E (Before (Current, Common or Christian) and C.E. would be something that EVERYONE could use, not just Christians. You could say it means current or Christian, depending on your beliefs.
Christians shot that down because it wasn’t forcing everyone to acknowledge their beliefs and they just can’t have that.
But it doesn’t stop there, it was also voted to change our U. S. government to a “constitutional republic” rather than “democratic”; I guess democratic was too close to Democrat.
Other changes were made to try to tone down the influence of Athiest’s such as Thomas Jefferson and strengthening the requirements on teaching Judeo-Christian influences of the nation’s Founding Fathers and attempting to water down rationale for the separation of church and state.
This is how you get into the situation we are in now; you allow a few people to “tweak” historical facts here and there, and over years those facts will be forgotten. The fact is that our nation was founded on “freedom of religion”, many of our Founding Fathers were either Atheist or just against Christianity in general and they REFUSED to acknowledge Christianity as an influence or a national religion, which is exactly why this nation was created.
However, with each small tweak here and change there, the Christians are slowly trying to change history to reflect their “point of view” which happens to be the exact opposite of the truth….
Love, Peace and Sharkyness!
