This post made for a very fun read and I admit gave me a good chuckle on how much thought you put into it...
However, it is completely based on your own generalized and obvious prejudices towards Christians. Sure, there probably exist some believers out there that believe exactly as you say they do on each topic but for the most part I would disagree and say that the general population of Christians do not do/act/believe everything that you believe we do in that post.
If you'd like responses as to my beliefs to each of those topics I'd be willing to give them if asked but I don't have the time this very moment.
I am sure the young man that posted this thread would like to account for these words to his own intellect, but he plagiarised the material from an excerpt known as "Top Ten Signs You're A Christian" that has been circulating on the web for quite some time. However, when I do quote the Author and Perfector of my faith I do like to cite the source in which I took those words where he guided me to find them in his Holy Bible. I am not here to criticise anyone who believes there is no God. I am not here to judge them, for I will let the God be their judge.
Ecclesiastes 3:17
I said in mine heart, God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: for there is a time there for every purpose and for every work.
However, I will pray and stand in the gap for those that do not believe in God, so that He will have mercy and abstain from pouring out his wrath upon their heads.
Ezekiel 22:30,31 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none. Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

“ I started out with nothing.”

God? there is no god. He is a pigment of humans imagaination. I do not believe, what i can not see.
Why don't you believe in God? Where's the evidence that he's not real? I can believe what i believe and you can do the same, but nobody likes it when people say that. One day you're gonna meet your maker and unfortunately go to hell. Only if you give your heart to God and admit him as your savior can you live in that joyful Heaven for eternity

So, if I pull a gun on you and force you to give me your all your money, does that make you generous?

No, God never died at all, some of the people who learned to reason decided somewhere that they were smarter than He is, that they are just so special they don't need a belief in God. Few true Christians are fearful of anything because they have the peace and knowledge of God in thier hearts and minds. He shows you and gives you amazing things when you trust in Him for all. Most people who deny Him are the very ones calling out in panic when they find out they really need Him.

"It's obvious that you have never experienced our loving Father"

Drowning, smiting, plaguing, cursing and torturing people is not "loving."

I've learned long ago, that you cannot argue with the weak minded. I have heard all of these arguments all of my life and if I have learned anything, is that my heart tells me different.

God gave me and you a gift, and YES I KNOW (almost said 'believed', but that's not it), it came from Him...He planted a seed in me that made me see and know his Son as a man, like you and me and no scientist can DENY the fact that Jesus lived and went through the suffering and crucifixion in the way that he did. No scientist can prove or disprove the miracles that Jesus is known for. No scientist can prove that the "Shroud of Turin" is a fake. When you have a living piece of history like the Shroud that can't be turned into a fake, then HOW can anyone say that Jesus didn't rise on the third day? If He didn't, then that Shroud wouldn't exist in the way it is. SOMETHING caused that image...now what would your scientific evidence be to support that it's a fake?

God gave you a gift. It was His only Son. It's up to you to deny him. I already know Him and I have all of my life. I don't need the bible or a church to tell me that.

The era of the patriarichal, punishing God, God as a cosmic Saddam Hussein, is coming to its end. Long live the once and future Loving Mother Goddess, the green Goddess of this beautiful living planet.
Satan challenged God saying that no one would follow God if bad things happened. Satan is the one that causes bad things in this world, not God. What we have to do is follow God and he will provide us with the strength and faith to stand with him until evil is destroyed. Once all Jehovah's faithful are brought to light God will then destroy evil.

"God gave me and you a gift" Prove it. "Because I said so" is not an intelligent argument.

"made me see and know his Son as a man" So you've seen a god-son? What does he look like?

"no scientist can DENY the fact that Jesus lived" It's possible that Jesus existed, but not certain. There is no evidence.

"No scientist can prove or disprove the miracles that Jesus is known for." There is no good reason to believe in those miracles, because there is no evidence. Scientists are not interested in trying to "disprove" untestable, unfalsifiable claims.

"No scientist can prove that the "Shroud of Turin" is a fake." Actually for that they can, and have. Now I realize that you will believe anything.

"God gave you a gift. It was His only Son. It's up to you to deny him." The god Apollo demands that you pay homage to him in the form of an animal sacrifice. It's up to you to deny him.

Satan doesn't "cause" anything because Satan is not real. Grow up and abandon the scape-goating nonsense.

First off, prove your points and maybe I'll listen. Seems to me you are as gullible as you claim me to be.

Secondly, if you are going by that "carbon dating" crap from the 70's, they had to refute that test and are STILL trying to figure it out. It's age defy's that test, plus it sounds like you'll believe anything a machine tells you.

Your logic is as sound as mine and anyone else's. As I said, it's up to you to deny what I believe and vice-a-versa. It's amazing that you are having the hard time with it.

So what are your theories to deny the "Shroud"? I think that I and all of the others would love to get a "highly experienced" viewpoint on how it's a fake. Go on, prove yourself and what you say to be the "gospel", so to speak.

Besides, he did give you a gift, and you are using it. He gave you a mind and a brain to use and the freedom of how to use it. It's up to you on what to think and believe. Now you know why I said you have the choice on whether you believe in Jesus or you deny him. Praise your Apollo or whatever else you believe.:o)!! May God send you his blessings and help you to see!!

"It's a shame you have no faith." It's a shame I don't have faith in what? Zeus, Thor, Lord Krishna?

"You will wander aimlessly through life with only emptiness and anger." LOL! I have no idea what you mean by "emptiness." I'm certainly not angry. Try not to flatter yourself.

"When you refuse to follow God you follow satan" Why would I follow a being that doesn't exist?

"First off, prove your points and maybe I'll listen" What points?

"Secondly, if you are going by that "carbon dating" crap from the 70's, they had to refute that test and are STILL trying to figure it out." Please don't try to bring science into a religion debate. You've already revealed how little you understand about basic science.

"it's up to you to deny what I believe and vice-a-versa." It's not up to me to deny anything. If you claim that pink unicorns orbit Pluto, the burden of proof is yours. If you don't provide evidence for such an outrageous claim, don't expect any intelligent person to take you seriously.

"So what are your theories to deny the "Shroud"?" I have no theories. You have no evidence.

And you've revealed little to support your reasons for your beliefs. So don't try so hard to tell us how to believe. How's about you follow your make believe fairies, since they seem important for you to keep mentioning.
