Why I Hate Religion! 47 Reasons That Will Send Me To Hell!

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Because … I already feel guilty writing this column. … No one seems to remember that, unlike being gay, it’s a choice. … Eternal damnation in hell is held up as a scare tactic to make you behave the way the church wants.

You have to keep track of your sins and then humiliatingly recite them in a loud, crisp voice, so the priest doesn’t say, “Repeat that, please.”

The virgin birth put an impossibly high standard on the rest of us for all time. … The church blames internal pedophilia on gays, but then when gays get the right to marry in a healthy, adult, consensual way, the church vehemently condemns it. … The church urges us to be good citizens, but when gay marriage goes into law, they suddenly want people to buck the system. … The church reserves the divine right to further wreck lives by forbidding condoms and abortions.

Every Wednesday afternoon, I loathed being dragged out of school to go to catechism and be taught scary fairy tales by forbidding nuns. … Not enough proselytizers seem to have read the Bible all the way through, and even if they have, they relish picking out the supposedly hateful parts to make trouble with, twisting them for maximum effect. … Jesus is almost always portrayed as someone out of an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue because, after all, if you advocate peace, love, and humble values, you have to look like a supermodel.

The founding dis of Christianity—”No room at the inn”—is the church’s favorite thing to tell people who don’t measure up. … “Love the sinner, but not the sin” is so deeply patronizing. Take all of me, baby. … If a non-priest walked around in the same garments and accessories as a clergyman, he’d be labeled a sicko and a degenerate. … The Radio City Christmas extravaganza stopped inviting me. … They falsely accuse gays of trying to convert children, but outside a church in Greenwich Village, there’s a sign asking, “Have you introduced your children to God? Let us help.”

Most religions contradict one another as to who God is and what He stands for. (How can they all be true? I’m guessing none of them are.) … Politicians—including our president—have invoked it as a reason for their beliefs on civil rights issues! (Whatever happened to the separation of church and state? Why should our leaders’ alleged religious values affect my status as a tax-paying citizen?) … An open atheist would have no chance whatsoever of making it to the White House.

Actors who regularly drink, drug, cheat, and do it up the ass shamelessly thank God when they win an award. … Broadway musicals about Jesus keep getting revived at the same time. Which to choose? … The Mormon musical is more fun than the Catholic one. That’s so wrong! … Mormons long ago made the bold move to quit polygamy, but nowadays they spend much of their time trying to stop gay monogamy.

Atheists who get old and face the threat of death suddenly believe in a divine being. … Losers who pray for a parking space occasionally get one and shriek, “It works!” … Some people I know who piously visit places of worship on a regular basis spend the rest of the week being bitchy, negative, and judgmental. … A handful of extremists in each religion come to represent the whole religion to a terrified populace.

All that supplicating and kneeling is bad for one’s ego (not to mention posture). … I don’t trust anyone who claims to have a direct hookup to a supreme power. I don’t even have international calling. … When something good happens, we thank God’s great generosity. When something bad happens, it’s our fault. … Most religions scoff at Scientology as hogwash, as if to say, “Stick to our batch of fiction, not theirs!” … Liberal religious people must not have powerful enough agents; they never seem to get airtime.

Religion hated me first. … Americans I’ve met who co-opt Buddhism do so as a self-advancement program more than a religion, exclusively chanting for money and promotions. … Producers who’ve told actors they look “too Jewish” have caused scores of noses to be cut off to spite their faces. … I have to be friends with people who killed my Jesus. … For Jews, the three weeks between the 17th of Tammuz and Tisha B’av are a mourning time when celebration and many other forms of activity are minimized. But most accidents happen at home!

Too many religious holidays are about fasting, denial, and abstinence. You come to dread these special days. … And yet, when Christ’s birthday gaily comes along every year, all that gratuitous gift giving and forced merriment ups the suicide rate. … Many Republicans scorn Shia Muslims for being oppressive to women, forgetting that they’re anti-gay, too. … God tells people to vote against gays, but did He also tell them to go to Chuck E. Cheese’s or see Transformers?

The architecture and songs are always really good, but they’re hard to enjoy with all that guilt attached. … Religious theme parks are usually way too brown. … The coffee grounds on my counter once almost formed a portrait of the Virgin Mary, but it wasn’t a strong enough resemblance to charge visitors to see.

The Hindus have literally millions of gods and goddesses. There is barely time to worship them all, let alone pick one of the three favored roads toward salvation. … There’s no guidebook on how it all works in actuality (e.g., how do you find your dead loved ones in heaven? Do you just float around, figuring you’ll eventually run into them, since you’re there for eternity? And I do mean you.)

But the thing I hate the most is that I happen to have met some religious people who aren’t petty or bigoted at all, and that tends to annoyingly get in the way of a lot of my theories. Amen.

Why are there hypocrites in the church?

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

If you dislike hypocrisy in the church, you have a lot in common with Jesus! Christ soundly denounced hypocrisy (Matthew 23).

Yes, there is sometimes hypocrisy in the church, for two reasons. First, some people professing to be Christians are not! There are some people sitting in pews on Sunday, wearing crosses around their necks, or preaching loudly on TV that are counterfeits. They are participating outwardly for reasons other than a saving relationship with Christ as their Lord and Master. Many have allowed the culture to mold them, rather than the reverse, as Christ commanded.

But secondly, the imperfections of Christians reinforce the important truth of the biblical message about man’s sinful nature. Being a sinner is, you might say, a requirement for being a Christian!

Yet there is a distinction between a hypocrite and a sinner. The word hypocrite applies to a person who pretends to be something he is not. A Christian recognizes his sinful nature, acknowledges it, and repents of it (daily, even hourly). All hypocrites are sinners, but not all sinners are hypocrites.

Christian morality is the purest, most sublime in all of history. Indeed, it is the perfect morality. While history records abusers of Christianity, one should not judge Christianity by such charlatans. Answers for the world’s problems is not to turn away from Christianity, but to a deeper, robust Christianity.

The opponents of Christianity like to point to things in history such as the Crusades, the Inquisition, or the Salem Witch trials. Dinesh D’Souza shows that these arguments against Christianity are much overblown. Regarding the Inquisition, about 2,000 people were killed over 350 years. Historian Glenn Sunshine in his book Why You Think the Way You Do points out that the worst abuses in the Inquisition were conducted by the civil government rather than the church. Concerning the Salem trials, fewer than 25 were killed. The Crusades were largely a defensive stand by Christians against invading Muslims, not unlike the U. S. war against the Taliban and Al Queda in Afghanistan resulting from 9/11.

While these deaths are tragic, they pale in comparison to atrocities by atheists. In the twentieth century alone over 100 million people were murdered by their own atheistic governments—Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Pol Pot, etc. (The Black Book of Communism estimates that 94 million people were killed in Communist states. Other estimates range as high as 160 million from atheist governments in the twentieth century.) And these numbers do not include additional millions put into the gulag or forced labor or reeducation camps. All told, the number of deaths by atheists in just the span of few decades in the twentieth century are over 500 times more than those to be by alleged Christians over several hundred years.

In Communism/atheism human rights do not exist. The idea of human rights is unique to biblically based cultures because the Bible insists that all men are made in the image of God and because Jesus died a sacrificial death to save all men. All that matters in Communist ideology is the historical dialectic leading to utopia.

Note this. Any Christian who commits evil of any kind is operating contrary to the teachings of Jesus. But anyone who commits evil in the name of atheism is acting consistent with the Darwinian law of the survival of the fittest.

As stated by authors Boa and Moody, it is unwise to compare the life of one believer with the lives of others. It is more valid to compare what he is now with what he was before coming to Christ.

But being a Christian really does not mean being related to a set of rules whereby we can measure self-improvement. Ultimately, Christianity really stands or falls on the person of Jesus, not the performance of Christians. We worship the perfect Christ, not imperfect Christians.

GOD IS IMAGINARY

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Proof #1 – Try praying

How might we prove that God is imaginary? One way would be to find a contradiction between the definition of God and the God we experience in the real world.

What would happen if we get down on our knees and pray to God in this way:

    Dear God, almighty, all-powerful, all-loving creator of the universe, we pray to you to cure every case of cancer on this planet tonight. We pray in faith, knowing you will bless us as you describe in Matthew 7:7, Matthew 17:20, Matthew 21:21, Mark 11:24, John 14:12-14, Matthew 18:19 and James 5:15-16. In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

We pray sincerely, knowing that when God answers this completely heartfelt, unselfish, non-materialistic prayer, it will glorify God and help millions of people in remarkable ways.

Will anything happen? No. Of course not.

This is very odd. Jesus makes specific promises in the Bible about how prayer is supposed to work. Jesus says in many different places that he and God will answer your prayers. And Christians believe Jesus — according to this recent article, “54% of American adults believe the Bible is literally true.” In some areas of the country the number goes as high as 75%.

If the Bible is literally true, then something is seriously amiss. Simply look at the facts. In Matthew 7:7 Jesus says:

    Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For every one who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man of you, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a serpent? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

If “every one who asks receives“, then if we ask for cancer to be cured, it should be cured. Right? If “our Father who is in heaven gives good things to those who ask him“, then if we ask him to cure cancer, he should cure it. Right? And yet nothing happens.

In Matthew 17:20 Jesus says:

    For truly, I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you.

If “nothing will be impossible to you“, then if we ask to cure cancer tonight, cancer should disappear. Right? Yet nothing happens. Note that if we take the Bible less-than-literally here, the statement “nothing will be impossible to you” becomes “lots of things will be impossible to you,” and that would mean that Jesus is lying.

In Matthew 21:21:

    I tell you the truth, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.

If “you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer“, then if we ask to cure cancer tonight, cancer should dissappear. Right? Yet nothing happens. Note again that there is not a non-literal way to interpret “you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer“, unless you replace “whatever” with “nothing” or “little.”

The message is reiterated Mark 11:24:

    Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

If God says, “believe that you have received it, and it will be yours,” and if we believe in God and his power, then what should happen if we pray to cure cancer tonight? It should be cured. Either that, or God is lying.

In John chapter 14, verses 12 through 14, Jesus tells all of us just how easy prayer can be:

      “I tell you the truth,

anyone

        who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and i will do it.

Look at how direct this statement is: “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” This is the “Son of God” speaking. Have we taken him “too literally?” No. This is a simple, unambiguous statement. Have we taken his statement “out of context?” No – Jesus uses the word anyone. Yet Jesus’ statement is obviously false. Because when we ask God to cure cancer tonight, nothing happens.

We see the same thing over and over again…

In Matthew 18:19 Jesus says:

    Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

In James 5:15-16 the Bible says:

    And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.

In Mark 9:23:

    All things are possible to him who believes.

In Luke 1:37:

    For with God nothing will be impossible.

Nothing could be simpler or clearer than Jesus’ promises about prayer in the Bible. Yet, when we pray to eliminate cancer, nothing happens.

And keep in mind that this is Jesus talking here. These are not the words of human beings. These are not the words of “inspired” human beings. These are supposedly the words of God himself, incarnated in a human body. Jesus is supposed to be a perfect, sinlessbeing. And yet, it is obvious that Jesus is lying. What Jesus says is clearly incorrect.

 


Jesus is supposed to be God. God is supposed to be perfect.
When Jesus speaks, he should speak the truth.
Yet when we look at what Jesus says about prayer,
he is clearly lying.
If you would like additional proof, gather a million faithful believers together into a giant prayer circle. Have them all pray together in Jesus’ name that God cures every case of cancer on the planet tomorrow. Pray sincerely, knowing that when God answers this completely heartfelt, unselfish, non-materialistic prayer, it will glorify God and help millions of people in remarkable ways. Now, we certainly have two or more people gathered together, and they have asked in Jesus’ name, and we have not one but a million faithful believers who, by definition, have faith and believe. We have fulfilled every one of Jesus’ requirements.

Will Jesus answer the prayer now? Of course not. Your prayer will go unanswered, in direct defiance to Jesus’ promises in the Bible. In fact, if you pray for anything that is impossible, your prayer will always go unanswered.

If you are an intelligent, rational human being, all of the examples mentioned above show you that the God of the Bible is imaginary. The Bible clearly promises that God answers prayers. Yet when we pray, nothing happens (for a complete discussion proving that nothing happens. What Jesus says about prayer in the Bible clearly is not true. Therefore, one of two things must be happening:

  • God is imaginary.
  • God does exist, but he never answers prayers. Unfortunately, God is defined by the Bible to be a prayer-answering being. The contradiction between the reality of God and the definition of God proves that God is imaginary.

In fact, we have ample scientific evidence to demonstrate that the belief in prayer is nothing but pure superstition, as shown in the next proof coming soon…….

WHY SOMEONE HATES GOD

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

What has God ever done for me?  I’ve never killed anyone.  I’ve never raped anyone.  I’ve never robbed a bank or stolen a car.  Yeah – I’ve hurt a few people, but they hurt me first!  They deserve what they got! 

 

You’ve hurt me, God, from the day I was born.  I had no father or mother to raise me.  I went from foster home to foster home as though I was just a cheap piece of rubbish.  No one ever really loved me.  Sandy was the only one who ever really loved me, and you let her get cancer and die on me.  God, I hate you so much.

 

You even let Molly get ran over by a car.  Remember that, God?  Molly was my friend’s pet dog, and Molly loved me more than she loved Sam, her owner.  Molly would come over and beg me to pet her and play with her.  She was the only one I could really talk to.  She was the only one I could really trust.  She never turned her back on me like everyone else has.  And you let her get run over God.  You took my only true friend, and I hate you for that too!

 

Remember that time my mom called me and asked if I would meet her at that restaurant?  She wanted to see what I looked like all grown up.  I waited there at that restaurant, God, but mom never showed up.  She never ever even called back to tell me what happened.  I prayed and asked you to have her call me and tell me why she never showed up, but you wouldn’t even have her do that!

 

Sandy and me were good together, God.  She had been hurt her whole life just like me.  She understood me, and I understood her.  We had plans to marry as soon as we could get some money together.  When I held her in my arms, I felt like nothing else in the world mattered.  My hurt would go away and her’s would go away too.  You took that away from me God, and I’ll hate you forever for taking her away from me.  Why did you have to let her die?

 

I used to dream that she would come to me at night.  I swear I could hear her in my room sometimes, calling my name, after she died.  I prayed and asked you to let me see her, but you wouldn’t even let me see her, even though I begged you to.  I could feel her there sometimes … I know she was there beside me – but you wouldn’t let me see her.  You are so cruel, God.

 

Look at the mess this world is in?  People killing people over nothing.  People strung out on drugs and killing each other for it.  What kind of God are you to make people do things like this?  Babies starving in other countries and disease is killing people like no tomorrow.  People killing people because of their hatred over religious beliefs and people blowing themselves up thinking that you are going to reward them in heaven for it?  This is crazy, God, and I think you are crazy too.  You’re crazy, God, that’s what you are – mad crazy!

 

And remember that time I went into that church to talk to you?  I really wanted to know if you really are real, or people just believe in you because they need something to believe in.  I gave you a chance to prove to me that you are real, and nothing happened.  I even got down on my knees and asked you to somehow show me you are real, and nothing happened.  Nothing!  I don’t think you are real, even.  If you were, you would answer me right now.  Are you a coward, God, or just think you’re too important to let me know you are real or not? 

 

Yet I want you to be real so you can know how much I hurt.  I want you to hurt just like I hurt.  I want you to hurt worse!  I don’t deserve to hurt this way.  Why did you let me be born in the first place?  Just to hurt like this?  You are so cruel and mean. 

 

Religious nuts say you died on a cross for my sins.  They claim you even rose again and went to heaven after you died.  Well, if that is so, why didn’t you let Sandy come back to life?  Those religious nuts claim you healed people before you died – why didn’t you heal Sandy before she died?  She asked you to heal her, but you didn’t.  I don’t think you healed nobody.  I don’t think you even died.  I don’t think you even existed.  You’re just a fairytale lie some religious nuts have come up with so they can get money out of poor people.  That’s what I think. 

 

So you going to send me to hell for hating you, God?  How can hell be any worse than the hell I’ve lived my whole life?  I don’t want to live anymore, God.  I want to get it all over with because I’m tired of hurting.  I’m tired of the pain.  I want you to hurt like I’m hurting God.  You don’t even care if I hurt, do you God?

 

God Fake or Real

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Why do people believe in something you cannot see, hear, smell or touch. Something that has all ways been and will never end. They really believe that Adam & Eve where the first people on Earth lol come on get a life. If and I stress IF GOD is real do you really think he created you not to have fun and so the church could get rich (NO I DONT THINK SO) he would want you to use the life he gave you.

The Church are the biggest liars and thieves going why if all the things that are locked up in places we are not allowed to see by the church can make us believe in God why cant we not see them?

The pope men not GOD chooses him and why is he closer to GOD than anyone else because men say so. Why is he closer to GOD than me or you if GOD is real why does he need any one man to be over everyone else surely that is his job.

People say they hear GOD and we believe them, but most people that hear voices we give medication or lock up and call them mad so what makes them so different?

The Bible a book written by men for men not written by GOD or even put together by GOD, no just a load of men telling stories that we are mean to believe. We really that gullible? Well it would seem yes some people are they read a book and think it is going to give them all the answers they need. No it’s not getting out in to the big wide world and using the life you were given by your parents not GOD not the church, that will help you not thinking if i do wrong GOD wont love me. No if and a big if he is real he will love you anyway just the controlling church want you to believe that GOD will not love you, and how the fuck would they know they don’t.
