Most radical Christians in this area are like "God Fearing" They are vile.... seems like this is a mental disorder or something. I'm glad I was able to get away from it and not totally brainwashed. Being rid of religion is the best thing I ever done. I'm spiritual, just not religious. My beliefs are between me and who ever I believe in and none of anyone's business as I don't have to answer to any living soul on this world.
I agree Tammy. Like I said earlier, I DO believe in God. I consider myself a Christian. Not because I go to church "I don't" but because I try to treat everyone like I want to be treated. By being the nicest person I can be under any given circumstances. By being the type of person Jesus would want me to be. Not judging others for what they do. I sometimes am guilty of that. But at least I admit it. I am guilty of judging the religious folks who down me. But you have to draw a line somewhere. If someone likes to drink, doesn't harm anyone at all, leave them alone. I feel that way about gays, tattoo people, hell anyone who wants to do something I may not like or agree with. Live and let live. Don't try to force radical religion on me. I won't make you drink a beer.

All I can do is just shake my head in embarassment on the way some churches display their judgemental attitudes towards others as though they are better than the rest. Until you realize that sinners commit sin and to continually point out that in public is going to do nothing but push them farther away. Jesus loves everyone, even those that go to hell, those in hell just didn't accept him. Until you can open your arms and love those that commit the sin, and yes your church is full of those that you are so preaching against, there will be a place reserved in hell just for you as well. Anyone who causes a person to not accept Jesus christ as their saviour by their actions will have to answer for it at their judgement day and will have that persons blood on their hands.

I openly adore this whole thread. There are some wonderful remarks on here... people with common sense and a good heart. A few nutcases, too.. just to drive the point home that the people around here are kinda nutso. To the original poster, If you were here I'd shake your hand. Jesus died so that I could be forgiven for my sins.. He died and all he asked is that we love and respect one another, live in tolerance and regret our actions that harm others. Jesus is a homie, and I think that if he walked into any of these churches, yes, they WOULD throw him out, judging him as a dirty, liberal hippie. This county ought to be ashamed of its self.

Exactly, Mercedes! I never understood how people can say this and say that about Jesus, talk about how great he was and how he saved them, then out of the other side of their mouth support the right-wing extremest of our society...these people have been brainwashed to believe something that just don't jive if they have read and understood that bible they claim to know all about.

David - I agree 100%, your reasoning is spot on. I myself have been to several churches in the county and it doesn't take long to figure out that all the do-gooders and bible beaters are among the worst. They declare that they live according to God's word but live like the devil. They justify their hypocritical lives by adding the part where they attend church every time the doors are open, or that they have been going to church all their life.
Most drink, do drugs, and commit adultery all while acting holier than thou while out in public or while amongst their church friends.

God fearing - Well, it is awful hard to get people to believe the BS your slinging when you live a double life, and it shows through in every thing you do. Life your life in accordance with God's word yes, that doesn't involve bashing other people, hatred, or involve the judging that you are doing. You will answer to God for your acts, and you will receive punishment, not praise.

You are correct that there are many that only put on a show and are only Sunday morning Christians but please don't put all Christians in the same category as God fearing. There are many very good people in all churches but sad to say they are outnumbered by those that only play church. Don't let those that stand out to get attention for themselves keep you from attending a church because we shouldnt go to see who is there or be concerned for how others act. The reason for attending a church is to worship God. We should not judge others on how they act, we only have to answer for our actions. When we do, we are judging and then we make ourselves no better than they are.

Maybe some of us "True Christians" who believe in tolerance and Love will be there too. To OPPOSE you radical hypocrites. Maybe if that were to happen, you "Christians" would just fade away and let real, tolerant believers in God have a voice around here. But, sadly I bet that would not happen. Instead, you "Radical Rancid Right Wingers" will just double down and become MORE vile and full of hate than you already are. And by any measure reflects the ignorance that is McDowell County.

Since I don't live in Marion anymore, I don't often bother to get onto Marion Topix, but I visited this morning out of morbid curiosity. I see nothing has changed. At the top of the list was a "Pierced up tattooed freaks!" thread. A few posts down in the thread, some foaming-at-the-mouth fundamentalist named "God Fearing" was spouting Bible verses and screamed that those who were tattooed or pierced were "on the road to Hell" and covered with "Devil marks." The shrieking lasted for two whole paragraphs.
Here's my word, as an Atheist, to that person and the rest of you:
The Bible clearly says everyone sins and has fallen short of the glory of God. Rather than get all frothy-mouthed as you loudly and hypocritically condemn others who sin like you do, you should just calm down. This is true regardless of who you condemn, be it the tattooed, homosexuals, Mexicans, etc. etc. What you should do is live your life the way you see fit. In any and all cases, how others choose to live their private lives simply isn't your problem or your responsibility. If God is really as worried about homosexuals and tattoos as you claim he is, then God will deal with those people after they die, right? Or don't you really believe that will happen?
Before you start screaming at other sinners, with spittle flying out of your mouth, remember what your Bible says:
1) Everyone is a sinner, including you.
2) Everyone falls short of the glory of God, including you.
3) When you type in BIG BOLD CAPS on Topix that someone's going to Hell because they're a sinner, you're a hypocrite because you're also a sinner.
4) The Bible clearly says judgment is reserved for the Lord.
5)*Most importantly*,If you judge others based upon their sins, especially since you are also personally full of sins, especially when God has commanded you not to judge others for their sins, you are willingly sinning against God.
Assuming God exists, He doesn't notice it when you do that.
In a way, I guess I should thank McDowell County. It was the Christians of McDowell County, through their extreme hatred, lack of tolerance, loudness, and (most importantly) sinful hypocrisy that started me down the path to realizing a Christian God didn't exist. Now I live my life free of all that ridiculousness.
Come to think of it, I don't know why I wrote all these words trying to discourage Christians from being hateful, hypocritical, judgmental types who shriek at others about what big sinning bastards they are. After all, Christianity as a percentage of the population is dropping through the floor in this country and they're the reason why. Kudos!
I agree with a lot of what you've said here, it makes a lot of sense. But it's worth asking this question: at best we as humans are gonna live 80-100 years, that's nothing compared to eternity. If your right with the atheist thing no big deal, we die and that's it. Now that doesn't make a lot of sense bc what is the purpose of life if that's true? But if Christians are right and there is a heaven and hell, we'll obviously an atheist or non believer would go straight there! That's a really big gamble. Doesn't seem worth it to me

Ziggler,

You make two interesting points:

1Q)You claim that if I'm right and this is the only life we have, then okay. However, you claim I'm possibly wasting eternity, and that if I'm wrong about the nonexistence of God, eternity will suck for me.

2Q)If there is no afterlife, what is the purpose of life?

Let me address both of them:

1A) Let's say for the sake of argument that I'm right and there is no Heaven or Hell and when you die, that's it: it's the end of Ziggler or Jeff forever. In short, eternity for you would actually be the 80 (average) years you live.

Wouldn't it also be a horrible waste to base your entire one and only life entirely on something that didn't exist (God)?

2A) Every person has to find meaning for their own lives. I truly believe God doesn't exist. You say that you have to have God to have meaning in life.

Again, let me go on the argument that God doesn't exist. If there is no God, wouldn't the person who bases his life on a God that doesn't exist be the one who is truly living the meaningless life?

Tell me when this thread is updated:
