Why, do you need to make sales? Isn't the bible enough to have read? It is enough to make a Christain into an atheist. I figure after reading the entire buybull, there isn't really anymore that I need to know about the filthy Abrahamic god-myths.

Lying about a god you have no evidence for is not smart of clever.
Do us a favour and remove the part in your book about atheists being fools.
You will get a lot more respect here if you correct your rag before coming in here with your fraudulent cult.
Why remove the truth: The fool hath said in his heart "There is no God." Faith requires no evidence, although there is plenty of evidence for those of us who will see it.

I humbly invite anyone who is concerned about the times we are living in to read the above book. The end times are here, now, and you need to be prepared. The ONLY way to do so is to seek Jesus Christ and become born again! PLEASE seek Jesus!
Another End Times again?

The US Postal Service has a better delivery record than the Apostles or Gospels.

So do we get a half-price entrance fee coupon to Heaven?

Or is religion exempt from living up to their promises. Again.

Yes, they are very plain, but if you knew anything about these, you would know that they are OT laws given ONLY to the Israelites to keep them sanctified to God and set apart from the rest of the evil/ungodly world. These laws were given to the Israelites to keep them pure and holy and were necessary to allow them, as God's chosen people, to prove their love and dedication to Him by following them. The slaves were taken in war and were better off as slaves with them than dead! Remember also that these slaves would be treated well and not looked upon as less than human, which is totally opposite of what happened with recent/modern slavery in the US and elsewhere. Non-believers cannot possibly understand these things with their secular, untrained, non-Christian mind. One must consider many aspects (language differences, context, social differences, etc.) to understand the Bible. Until people like you get this training, you really should just keep your opinions to yourselves, as you only embarrass yourselves with this kind of nonsense!
Have you even read the bible?

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
5:18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

James 2:10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Why did jesus call the Pharisees hypocrites in Matthew 15:4-7? Because they did not follow the OT command to kill children who sass their parents. Clearly, jesus endorses the OT laws.

So what difference does it make that this isn't the first time? A prophesy can only be denied as being fulfilled when its time has passed; the end times prophesy timing has NOT passed and, therefore, can still happen. The events of today (beginning especially with the fulfillment of Israel's regaining of its nation) give us more reason to believe the end times are near than ever before.

Yes, I have read the Bible through a few times and I know it well! Jesus said He fulfilled the law. He meant that, through living a sinless life, He had fulfilled it and that it was now under Him. Jesus death and resurrection ushered in the age of grace which is essentially His sacrifice in our stead. If we are born again, we are under His grace and the law is fulfilled in that. We don't go around killing women for adultery now because Jesus' blood covered ALL sin. Jesus called them hypocrites because they were putting their man-made traditions over and above the law. It had to do with their tradition of corban, not child rearing! He was simply making a comparison to illustrate their hypocrisy.

Nope.

You idiots and idiots like you, have been claiming "end times" ever since your ugly cult was invented by Constantine.

In 500? It was the "end", according to your "experts". But the world continued as before.

In 1000? Again, it was going to be the "end"-- all "certified" by "experts". Yet the world continued unabated.

Again in 1200, 1500 and 2000-- and many other "gosh" numbers in-between.

You idiots have been claiming that-- and failing, since the start.

Which one? The bible? I've read it-- 100's of times in my life.

It's rubbish.

It was reading it back-to-front that turned me into an atheist.

At the time? I believed it-- but I'd never read it all at one go.

A serious bible study taught me that the bible is rubbish.

Those are all classic misunderstandings/misrepresent ations of the Bible. Unfortunately, it sounds as though you didn't have, or chose not to have, sound tutelage in the Word.
IF the bible has to be "explained"?

IT IS NOT FROM A GOD, silly!

A book written by a GOD? Would be self-evident-- no need to "explain" it.

No.

Atheism is the utter LACK OF FAITH.

Geisler is a low grade moron.

BTW, the term "cult" differs in meaning to Christians from how secularists define it. A cult is any religion/movement, the major doctrines of which, if followed, could cause a person to not find salvation (eg. Catholicism, Mormonism, JWs, Scientology, Buddhism, etc.).
You are correct.

The **right** term for your religion?

Is hatecult.

You forgot the "hate" part-- any religion that teaches people they DESERVE infinite torture?

Is a **hate** cult. No mistake.

1. Our living leader is Jesus who claimed and proved He deserves to be our leader.
1. You forgot to PROVE that your jesus character was a real person, at one time.

Historically speaking? There is nothing supporting that...

So your first line is ...

.. a lie.

Pity.

Bullshit.

Your Jesus himself commanded you to follow ALL the old laws.

It's in there (new testament)-- I bet you don't even know where....

Bullshit. Read it **again** only without your blinders on.

Jesus was first and foremost a JEW, according to your own book.

He demanded his followers to be JEWS as well.

It was the heretic Paul-- who never met your Jesus-- who changes the rules up.

Jesus commanded you to be JEWISH, and to follow the LAWS.

But how will believers feel 'special' if they don't have some True Believer Secret Decoder Ring (tm) that makes the absurdities and contradictions of the bible disappear?

Indeed. Whom would they persecute, abuse and heap thoughts of eternal torment onto, if not for non-believers?
