Eskimo:"If I did not know about God and sin, would I go to hell?"

Priest: "No, not if you did not know."

Eskimo: "Then why did you tell me?"

<quoted text> and for fun, let's say the Christians are right and you are wrong....on judgment day your sins will be read out loud and then you will be cast into a lake of fire to burn for all eternity...then you will believe. You will remember these and other conversations you have had denouncing Gods existence.
You will not adapt to the pain. The sering will not ease. The physical gnashing of your skin by those you have manipulated will not result in old skin into new. How scarry. You have learned enough that when the end of the world comes you will recognize and there won't be anything you can do.
Resorting to threats and scare tactics is proof that the god of your cult does not exist

If you really believed your crap than why do you cling to life and get upset when some one dies, shouldn't you rejoice instead?

"Lighthouses are more helpful then churches."

This quote by a founding father is even more true in this day and age when lighthouses are rarely used.

Yep, we non-believers would run amuck without fear of punishment and hope of reward after we die.

According to both Calvin and Luther your actions don't really mean that much. You basically have no control at all, otherwise you elevate yourself closer to being like God. Rather, you are utterly depraived and utterly in his control.
They do say that your actions can only reflect the grace you may or may not be given but it surely does not influence it.
Also, let's pretend I rape a child. Let's say I'm possessed with this intense lust for children. So I do it. Then, racked with guilt and repentance, I pray and find salvation. Then I fall away and rape again. Then I come back to Christ.
Rinse and repeat.
At what point does Jesus say enough is enough? Based on my understanding of Christianity and what I've been taught in various churches Jesus will NEVER say that. So in theory I could commit the most horrible crimes imaginable and still end up in Heaven.
That is why I reject any argument that religion is a required element of morality. It clearly does not prevent bad behavior. And since I know for a fact you can be moral without religion I have no particular reason to think religion has anything to do with morality at all.
Consider that in my example a repeating child rapist can still end up in heaven, no matter how many lives he shatters. But if he ever rejects God then he ends up in Hell.
That tells me something important about the nature of God: he's kind of an a**hole. Who wants to devote his life to an a**hole?
You show no scriptures to support your suposition only faulty religious beliefs.
You could use a serious Bible study with Jehovah's Witnesses to clear away all the nonsense you THINK the Bible teaches. You would be surprised at what the TRUTH can do for you, John 8:31,32 And so Jesus went on to say to the Jews that had believed him:“If YOU remain in my word, YOU are really my disciples, 32 and YOU will know the truth, and the truth will set YOU free
wow

The thought of a JW clearing anything up is hilarious to me. You're operating under the premise that the Bible is something that could be interpreted correctly to begin with.
What makes you so sure that your magic book is the right answer and all the other magic books out there are wrong?

The truth WOULD set you free if you would stop quoting scripture as if it were proof of the veracity of gospel. Your stance is akin to saying a dog is a tree and then puffing out your chest when it says, "Bark!"
wow

OK now this is too funny.
In the supermarket a middle aged woman looked at my Baphomet and called 911 to report a devil worshiper. She thought that since I do not go to her church that I should be arrested.
I could not hear what the 911 operator said but the woman said "no, he is just laughing at me"
I was laughing, than I said "BOO" and went about my shopping.

<quoted text>
Intelligence and gullibility are neither mutually dependent nor mutually exclusive. However, it is a telling point that those who we now regard as the greatest minds in history are not renowned for sitting in the back of the church - nor in the front of one.
What is a higher power? Only a fool does not recognize that there are powers greater than ourselves. Try to climb Mount Everest solo, complete Einstein's Unified Field Theory, don't pay the IRS, lick a light socket, argue with your mother in law.... Have faith in a higher power? Sure, one can have faith that gravity will not fail, that a vehicle will follow laws of motion, that the Earth will spin and the sun will rise. Have faith in a Higher Power? Seriously? You think that putting an omniscient, omnipotent, para-eternal personality in the straight jacket of a human written book is in any way or possibility convincing?
I contend that in the pursuit of becoming a power greater than ourselves, humans take the easiest and shortest route. Call it theology, mythology, spiritualism, mysticism, whatever - we create Gods in our own image. Perhaps I do not accept the fantasies because I don't believe in circumventing reality to reach a desired conclusion, or maybe it's just because (I'll be the first to admit that) I've never been a good liar.
You missed my point. I'm not trying to convince you there is a God. I'm just saying you can't call people less intelligent just because they believe in God.
I've already told you that there is no proof that God exists, nor is there proof that He doesn't. We should all agree with that. Faith does not equal intelligence, just like lack of faith does not equal intelligence.

If you repeat the crime, then repentance never happened, as I described before.

I don't subscribe to a religion that believes works are not important. The scriptures say faith without works is dead. Works alone do not provide salvation, but faith without works means there never was really faith.

I hope this helps you understand my stance.
