Why Christianty makes sense and other reglions don’t.


Even a superficial perusal of other religions should convince any right thinking person that Christianty is the only true relgion:

1. Muslims believe whatever the Koran says is absolutely true. Hah! Among other things one is asked to believe that their prophet was ‘translated’ to Jerusalem one night by an angel and rode up to heaven on a horse with a woman’s face to talk with God before returning to Mecca. How absurd is that!

2. Judaism strongly denies that Jesus was God and claim his sacrifice wasn’t necessary. No savior is needed to act as an intermediary. Blasphemy!

3. Scientology claims that, 75 million years ago, a being by the name of Xenu, the dictator of the ‘Galactic Confederacy’ brought billions of his people in a DC-8 like space craft to earth and killed them. The essence of these people remained to cause harm to modern day humans. How absurd is this! Everyone know the earth is only 6,000 years old!

4. Hinduism has an absurd belief in a three-in-one god known as ‘Brahman’: Brahma the Creator; Vishnu the Preserver; Shiva the Destroyer. They also have a ridiculous belief in reincarnation: One goes through a series of physical births, deaths, and rebirths. With good karma, a person can achieve godhood. Bad karma can cause one to be reborn as an animal.

5. Buddhism also teaches an absurd doctrine of reincarnation. Supposedly, if a person can overcome desire and attachment to self he can reach Nirvana. Not without Jesus he can't!

6. Mormonism believe that God created multiple worlds with people inhabiting them. They believe that multiple gods exist and that each has its own universe. Man is subject only to his one god and if he obtains the highest level of heaven he can become a god. This is blasphemy and absurd!

There are dozens of other religions all equally as silly, so there’s no point in dealing with each and everyone, but the most amazingly stupid religion of all is that of atheism which worships the false gods of insidious reason and logic.

An atheist is a deviate who can’t handle the truth!

Atheists--The notion that the universe and life and love and courage and joy are all just the result of some accidental cosmic joke is not only foolish, but also just plain wrong.

"The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God.'"Psalms 14:1 and 53:1

.. .. the Hebrew word translated "fool." ...is nabal which refers more to a "moral fool," e.g., someone without morals. The meaning of the text is not "Unintelligent people do not believe in God." Rather, the meaning of the text is "Immoral people do not believe in God."

Many atheists are very intelligent individuals. It is not intelligence, or a lack thereof, that leads a person to reject belief in God. It is a lack of morals that leads a person to reject belief in God. People do not reject the idea of there being a Creator Being. Rather, people reject the idea of there being a Creator Being who demands morality from His creation. In order to clear their consciences and relieve themselves of guilt, people reject the idea of God as the only source of absolute morality. Doing so allows atheists to live however they choose—as morally or immorally as they desire—with no feelings of guilt for their refusal to be accountable to God.

 

Several prominent atheists have admitted this. One famous atheist, when asked what he hopes to accomplish through atheism, declared that he wants "to drink as much alcohol and have sex with as many women as possible." Belief in a divine Being is accompanied by a feeling of accountability and responsibility toward that Being. So, to escape from the condemnation of conscience, which itself was created by God, one must deny the existence of God in order to deny the moral pull of the conscience.

This is not to say that all atheists are immoral people. Many atheists live relatively moral lives. The point of "The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’" is that a lack of evidence of His existence is not the true reason people reject belief in God. People reject belief in God due to a desire to live free of the moral constraints He requires and to escape the guilt that accompanies the violation of those constraints. "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them … men are without excuse … their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools … Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie" (Romans 1:18-25

It is interesting to watch this stuff propagate across the internet. It seems to spread as efficiently as Republican Talking Points. I can smell William Lane Craig in there somewhere.

I thought this was a parody at first.... Good Grief.

It's amazing how you find these people on the net, but it's so rare in person. It's almost as if they know that it's insane and unsupportable.

Hmmm this must be why I'm a 'left thinking' person :D

Lack of morals indeed. All religions are stupid, but Islam and Christianity probably have more in common with evil than they'll ever know!

And yes. Rejecting the idea of a "creator god" is rather easy. The egotism of these people is truly frightening.

Islam and Christianity are spinoffs.
When has a spinoff ever been better than the original?
Maude was better than All In The Family?
Joanie Loves Chachi better than Happy Days?
I don't think so...

Ya, willailla doesn't really present much of an argument here and I'm wondering if he's a Poe. IMHO Christianity makes far less sense than Islam, Judism and Buddhism and others I'm sure. Even if we conceded that there was a god, Christianity would seem only slightly less stupid.

A friend of mine was in Taiwan recently and as he went about he would ask average people what their religion was all about [Taiwan has over a dozen different religions, Buddhism being the most popular]. He was amazed to find that no one he spoke to knew anything abound their particular religion other than superficial platitudes. I know among Christians I've talked with this is true, too.

I think Marx was right about the religion-opium thingy. People don't really want to know anything; they just want to take something that makes them feel good--and reality ain't it.

A Church-going relative of mine and I were driving through the blue grass state in his pickup truck and debating various things. At one point, I told him that life has no meaning, you live, you die. He nodded grimly, a little pissed off, then said, 'But I couldn't go on living if I believed that.'

So you believe because you couldn't go on living otherwise? You who rap poetically about the wonders of creation. Yet you never wonder why a slaver god would make your believing necessary for happiness.

I guess I'm a 'know-nothinger', Fred. I don't know why to anything.
Comment by Rocio Hernandez on August 23, 2010 at 5:01am
Fred, you're not alone.

For whatever reason, the fact that what is IS and that it doesn't have an overarching plan to it deeply disturbs me but its entirely possible the reason it disturbs me is because of childhood indoctrination and that the very basis from which the rest of my worldy beliefs rely on was unstable and these other beliefs have had to be reformed slowly to face reality.

Being afraid of the unknown is no good reason to believe something that you know is wildly untrue though.

I've heard a bit about a concept called anomie. Things like suicide seem to be mainly a modern day problem. (People didn't generally just off themselves until the industrial revolution at least not at the numbers we're seeing). People feel alienated and purposeless but why do we feel alone when there are 6.5 Billion other people on the planet? It is our lack of being able to have a community and social ties and support which arose out of the modern organization of society.

Then again we know things that most of our ancestors never knew which could help us deal with lack of the supernatural. When you're feeling alone and insignificant, if you think about the fact that we are composed of particles that arose from the explosion of massive stars billions of years ago, thats a WAY better story than the stuff we imagine was the way we came to being.
