Oh you all know when your at death's door, you'll be begging for God's help. I guarantee that, will happen for sure! Say all you want now but, when the time come's if your still got brain's left. I am sure if somebody was killing you, right now, you would beg for God to stop them, or possessed by a demon, you would want the help of an angel?

I truely feel sorry for those of you that say there is no God. I know he is real, and the sad thing is that one day you will to, but it will be to late. He is real. I am a Penecostal woman, I am spirit filled, and I have witnessed many miracles in my church. To bad some people will have to find out the hard way.

It is beyond me how any one could live without some source of goodness and love which is all that God is!Gee, in the last moments of Madeline Murray O'Hair's life, the queen of the athiest movement,how did it feel to look at death in the eye thinking that there was no goodness and nothing afterward.

That's very easy to say when you're alive, but what about when you're facing death and you have reality hit you dead in the face. Then what? Will you still cry wolf about God then or will you be on the death bed of repentance before you depart?

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS? Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death! Very interesting, read until the end.....It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7):'Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sow,that shall he also reap.

God is not mocked refers to a more final judgement than will be executed on earth,....more to follow!

you also have the Second death (look it up) which is the death of the soul at the end of a period when Christ himself returns. It is reserved for those who still dont get it (so to speak) even though the truth is before them. This second death is not the soul burning forever and ever but being blotted out like carbon from a log burning. It goes up forever and ever, we never see the log (SOUL) again.
I think its closer to terror.

I figure as we each get a similar response during conversations with christians we can post them here.I went to a large thread and brought up pages and searched for "death" in the text.All christian commentators.I stopped at eleven.

Then, when people say "Chistianity isn't about<insert term>!", it might be easy to say.."welllll funny you mention that"...and just link to the page.
The forum moves so quickly sometimes, if you don't specifically save a comment it becomes lost.I wish there was a search function here that allowed some comprehensive queries.

Hello there.

I've noticed also that the "Christians" have a set number of standard arguments and responses concerning their beliefs.

A few months ago I began compiling their comments and my answers in a Microsoft Word file.

I currently have about 300 pages filled, and I've decided to write a book based on the material I've collected.

I figured the best contribution I could make to the atheist community, based on my personal background and my particularly iconoclastic bent, would be to produce a "guidebook" for atheists who just want to have fun with fundies.

Let's face it - the fundies are unwavering. They refuse to even look at links that we post, or read books by evolutionary biologists. They even denounce science while they type on highly evolved scientific computing machines!

So my feeling is, if the fundies can't be reasoned with, why not have some fun with them?

It may be a waste of time for some, but hey - what else is there to do while waiting for the next load of laundry to dry?

A fascinating subject for a book.Long overdue.

The benefits of a book detailing the fallacies and humor etc..of Christianity,is something I'd imagine people would be interested in.

Thank you! That was very encouraging. I'm going to print your post and pin it to the wall in my study so I can refer to it whenever I start to think I may be wasting my time.

Thanks again.

I'm keeping all my options open.

I sent a copy of the first three chapters to Prometheus Books, and they expressed some interest.

I'll certainly keep you up to date. Thanks for the encouragement.

Alexia,
You do realize you're dealing with people of NO understanding of the scriptures.They are spiritually dead,they cannot understand,they consider themselves wiser than God,even denying that His law is written on their hearts,but make a joke of God's Word.Remember,we are speaking to dead people,a bunch of dead men's bones,as in Ezekiel 37.God must give them life,in order for them to see the Kingdom of Heaven,If He does not,they will die in their sins,and may also enter into the day of judgment.Just bear that in mind,while you post.
nysdan talks to dead people.
