Are you an amputee?? I see you've asked this in an endless number of posts. It is an unfortunate loss to live with, I know. Disease, illness, death, suffering, and all other negative aspects of life are the result of sin. We are ALL sinners. Until sin entered the world, none of this existed. Total healing does not come until after death. God never promised it would. Jesus suffered, Paul suffered many maladies, and most all His closest endured many hardships and horrible deaths. Why should we expect to be treated better??
2 Chron. 7:
14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
People were healed all throughout the bible. There are promises of good health and other blessings by God.

You say that all the horrible things in the world are the result of sin, but is that fair? Is it fair that others doing wrong leads to the suffering of those who are not culpable? Even if someone sins (which sins don't exist in the sense that you believe), I don't think they necessarily deserve punishment. Someone who works on the sabbath shouldn't get cancer. Someone who covets doesn't deserve to die in a plane crash.

What do you make of the fact that all other animals have diseases and die? Did they sin? Do they deserve to suffer because of the supposed origin of sin?

You ask why we should expect to be treated better than those who have suffered and experienced great pain. Let me ask you something: why should anyone be subjected to such pain for eternity because they simply do not believe in God? Why do I have a greater sense of morality than the god you believe in? Why is it that I know humans shouldn't suffer or have to just endure hardships because of this ridiculous idea that we are committing imaginary crimes?

Brother Micah is one of our groupís finest ambassadors to the underbelly world of sin and depravity, selflessly risking life and limb to minister to the needs of the whoremonger community. We taught him well an he exemplifies our ďtell it like it is, no holds barredĒ penetration to reach and save souls. Doing Godís work isnít always pretty or appreciated, just an altruistic demonstration of servitude. Thank you Brother Micah!

Why I am no longer a Christian

So, why am I no longer a Christian? It boils down to one thing - education. I know a lot more about the Bible now as an atheist than I did as a Christian. I know a lot more about Christian doctrines now as an atheist than I did as a Christian.

Or, at least, I have a different understanding of them now that I no longer believe them. I have a different understanding of God now that I no longer believe that he actually exists.

Education has made the difference. The education I gained reading skeptical materials has made the difference. But itís a good difference. I know how to think critically now. I know how to think for myself.

I know how to give my own life meaning apart from religion. I know how to live life happily free from the chains of religious mythology.

My Christian experience was not a bad one, and I have no doubt in my mind that I was a ďrealĒ Christian. But education stretches the mind, and like a rubber band that is stretched, the mind cannot return to its original condition once it has been stretched.

Those "scare" tracts written by and for uneducated, superstitious simpletons? No thanks. Keep 'em and use 'em. You'd save money on Charmin.
Well Rev, since I now know you can't give me an answer to my amputee question (except "turn or burn"). I though maybe I'm starting out to hard for your god. so, here's nine more. Pick and choose, Rev.

Question #1: Why Won't God Heal Amputees?
(Never mind, its already been established that one is too hard for you book-thumpers).

Question #2: Why are there so many starving children in our world?

Question #3: Why does God demand the death of so many innocent people in the Bible?

Question #4: Why does the Bible contain so much anti-scientific nonsense?

Question #5: Why is God such a huge proponent of slavery in the Bible?

Question #6: Why do bad things happen to good people?

Question #7: Why didn't any of Jesus' miracles leave behind any evidence?

Question #8: How do we explain the fact that Jesus has never appeared to you?

Question #9: Why would Jesus want you to eat his body and drink his blood?

Question #10: Why do Christians get divorced at the same rate as non-Christians?

Enthrall us Reverend. Turn or burn. Ha.

Is it up to man to judge whether Godís decisions are fair? Come on, Salts, you know better than that. Donít you know that the whole Garden of Eden debacle about original sin is grossly misunderstood by mere mortals to be an injustice? You must know that all Godís creatures, human and animal, die and that itís not a punishment.

But, where our souls go when we die is up to us and how we lived our lives. We might be promoted to Heaven or dragged by Satan to suffer eternal Hell for our wretched, sinful lives. There are certain ďtricks of the tradeĒ that are important to know, of course. First and foremost, youíve got to get saved in order to get that original sin washed off. Then, remember to live as saintly a life as possible thereafter. Itís good for the soul and will also be appreciated by family and friends. In balance, however, whatís more important than what you do is what you believe.

Revvy has worked so hard with his ministry today that he asked me to fill in for a few minutes. I know heís very concerned that your anger has not resolved and regrets that you have initially chosen to refuse his helpful tracts, which are written by our Insight Committee and artfully illustrated in full color by professional artists. We find them a convenient and attractive addition to our Discovery Lounge coffee tables. Always popular with our visitors, they often just disappear, to be read later. Please keep that in mind.

Iíll let Revvy know youíre still interested in keeping in touch. Be well.

Hmmmmmm. This is twice now that "Revvy" has jumped ship and let you take over for him, "Darryl." And both times it has been when I fronted him and his little tin god out. What are you, a fluffer? and by the way, You're "kill 'em with kindness" approach doesn't work, either. It just bolsters my arguments and re-enforces everything I claim you and Revvy are...manipulators who have been manipulated themselves into scaring simple-minded people into joining your cult. You're a blind peon at best. I can barely muster the energy to tear the Rev down. I certainly won't waste time on one of his parrots.*Squawk**turn or burn**Squawk*

"Not the manner" is right. You (that is Rev, Darryl and you) are good at using an unusual "style."

But the point is that ALL the right catchphrases are there.
All the official Fundie Christian BS.

You're just too "perfect" to be believable.
You are baiting people for the attention.

And no, you aren't a Christian, not of any kind.
