Oh, the stories that could be told.What I dont get is that being a Christian is easy and it is all about leading a good life. Nothing about being a Christian will harm you or hurt you in any way. Following Gods word is good for you and will bring you joy and happiness. Being a Christian is easy and means freedom for eternity. WHY DONT PEOPLE DO IT....
Tell me how does being a Christian hurt anyone?
The biggest problem with being a Christian is that you have to suspend your disbelief and keep a firm grip on your innate logic and sense of what is, or is not, bullsh!t.
Despite all the creationism crap about evolution that is posted on these forums, every scientific organization on the planet knows it's true and support it. Also to be considered is that ALL other sciences that somehow impinge on religion, and the Bible are NOT supporting religion, but are actively disproving it day by day.

Well, in today's world there are people being killed in a number of third world countries in the name of God and Allah. Not long ago the Pope told followers in Africa that they should NOT use condoms to protect from AIDS...this pretty much guarantees more deaths from that plague.
In years past the Protestants and Catholics have fought big wars against each other and the death tolls were pretty huge.
Of course in the real olden days the church was killing people for heresy, blasphemy and assorted other 'sins' against God, and burning witches. Many hundreds of thousands of women were lost in the Dark and Middle ages. It wasn't until the 1800's that the churches lost the power of death against people.
Nowadays we are balancing on the edge of Armageddon as the Muslims and Christians line up to fulfill their obligation to God and Allah.
Did you know that in the early days of Europe's discovery of North and South Americas the Christians were taking Indian/native American children and baptizing them and then bashing their heads against the rocks??
Where in the Bible does it have words to encourage this evil practice?? What kind of 'loving' God lets this go on?? All of this only makes sense if there is no God.
