I just don't see why a grown adult would only want to make fun of others. I see very little maturity in many of the words he has written.
That's the insidious nature of christianity.

It teaches it's slaves--erm-- "followers" that all people are **deserving** if infinite torture.

As such? All people are therefore worth less than pond scum--according to christian teachings.

When you are taught--repeatedly-- that people are worthless in the eyes of your deity?

You do tend to treat them accordingly.....

Yes, these sad people really cannot see past the immediate, to the consequences of what they are saying.

See my previous post: one of the consequences of christianity's hell theology is that people are worth nothing.

The old "turn the other cheek" and "give him your shirt, too" and all that.

Clearly you do not actually **READ** that dust-covered bible buried on your nightstand-- underneath that high stack of well-thumbed kiddie-porn you have collected.

iseeyou you don't even believe in Jesus so why do you keep invoking His name? Honestly, I thought atheists prided themselves on having superior intellect. If this is the cream of the atheist crop then I can't say I'm impressed.

You know...you should be more appreciative. I was speaking as though he has ever existed in the way you think he did. I've said before that if he did exist, he was probably a spiritual hippie...however just because I say the name does not mean that I worship it. I pride myself in nothing other than the fact that I am a good person and I do my best in this world....and if you are looking for the cream of the crop of anything you do not need to be on Topix lmao!!!

well what you don't seem to understand is that you are not really that good of a person. I'm sure you have lied, cursed quit a bit, and done many other things that most people wouldn't consider good. All of us are basically sinful human beings and you are no exception.

I personally don't think you are a good person either, but what did that have to do with anything? I still pride myself in that because I know and the people that are around me know that I am. The only thing you have to work with is what you've seen me post on here, and given the fact that you come on here simply to make fun of people I can almost guarantee that you can't even remember those conversations at all. The posts that I've seen from you and the simple statement that you are an adult who likes to come on Topix and make fun of people tells me what kind of person you are. I'm sure your horrible habit leaks out of topix and onto your community as well so I can't say that we are alike... because we most certainly aren't.

Jesus-christ on a crutch, but you are dimwitted.

Did it p**ss you off?

Wow... here?

You project your own depraved and hate-filled (miserable too) life onto everyone else.

That's kinda sad, bub.

Seriously-- get some professional help.

... maybe they can teach you how to use the "reply"...

I agree-- he's a miserable person projecting his own misery onto any and everyone he meets.

It's one of many symptoms of "faith overload", a consequence of religious belief...

you keep making it a point that you are some really good person. The point is that you are not all that good and none of us are which is why Christ came in the first place. There isn't a person on this planet that hasn't lied, cheated, cursed, or done a multitude of things that they shouldn't be proud of.

Who are you speaking to?

You are clearly too much of an idiot to use the "reply" function.

Must be all that brain-damage due to over-exposure to faith.

Sad, really...

Actually no...I'm not making a point, I'm making a statement. Whether you agree or disagree with that statement is neither her nor there to me.

My original response to you was this:
No, your bible tells you to live like Jesus would. Jesus must have been a real a**hole lmao!

and since you need it spelled out for you...I was saying that your bible may not specifically tell you that you shouldn't make fun of people, but it does tell you to live like Jesus would, and if that is what you do then Jesus must have been a real a**hole because that is the way you portray yourself.

The difference between you and I is that I choose to be a good person, whereas your loving, precious all knowing Jesus can't even do something as simple as make you "understand", not just say, that you are not any more special than anyone else on the face of the planet, whether they be religious or not. If you would like me to make a point....then my point is... you act like an a**hole :)

It wouldn't really matter who they are responding to, because everything that is said is just a failed attempt to "make fun" of someone or something....so I just respond to whatever I feel like lol
