The word cult in current usage is a pejorative term for a new atheist movement or other group whose beliefs or practices are considered abnormal or bizarre.
For you to type any more is to willfully continue your descent into ignorance and dishonesty.

Creationists with no proof of god love to attack atheists.

They'll do anything to hide away from the fact that they are all liars and have no morals.

Funny that, since cultus is the Latin for worship

there is something crazy about loving a nasty God. there is something even crazier about pretending that nasty God is lovable. looks like fear makes liars who lie to themselves, then to others.

my guess is that the truth is not to be found, on these matters. there are just sensible guesses and ridiculous ones. sensible guessing is called agnostic atheism.

If only you knew of an all powerful god that could have made Atheists differently.

How would you know? You wouldn't know 'truth' if it crawled up your leg and gnawed off your left nut.

When a person resorts to obscene or dirty speech, it just shows your lack of education and manners, choosing to be a low life style of person only befits someone who hates righteousness and loves wickedness and is not worth his gift of life.

I do speak the truth, it is the self righteous person that cannot accept the truth of Scriptures, he loves his own thinking, and not God's word.
Luke 6:46

The following passage shows that slaves are clearly property to be bought and sold like livestock.

However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.(Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT)

If you indeed spoke the truth you would have addressed the issue of the name of your god. You have been lied to and are spreading that lie from door to door.

Considering that the word "jehovah" translated from the Hebrew was intended to phonetically sound out as the tetragrammaton and is not an English word as your masters have falsely claimed, the fact that they continue to urge you to go from door to door insisting people have to accept a word that means "god of mischief" in order to be saved has got to be the most blasphemous act a religious group has ever been ordered to do by their leaders!

Here is some information about the erroneous hybrid error "jehovah" and why it is not in any way, shape, or form, the name of GOD:

http://www.catholicapologetics.info/apologeti...

What is interesting about this article is that it is from the Roman Catholic Church, the very same group that made the error and admitted it.

Why than, True Christian witness, do your masters in Brooklyn continue to cling to this word?

Could it be that to admit the error would collapse your whole religion considering the claims of your masters of being in direct communication with your god contradicts the simple documented fact of getting the name wrong?

An atheist is simply one who does not accept any deities.

Mental illness is defined as insisting reality is something other than what it is. You know, like building a church on an embarrassing error and than refusing to face the reality of being wrong and lying about it from door to door!

To claim that you speak the truth, True Christian witness, is simply compounding the lie!

Since it's now been established that atheism is a form of mental illness, it's painfully obvious that your statements only apply to the atheist.
