A Real Puzzle To Me

Christians seem to believe that because Hey Zeus forgave them that it didn't happen. I have news for them....their past and what they did impacted others and that part ain't going away. To me it's like a serial murderer feeling remorse after being convicted of their latest assault on some family. The apology falls on deaf ears.

I have a brother who stole hubcaps and shoplifted during his teens. He was in and out of jail numerous times, never for very long but it exemplified his early years. He graduated to alcohol then and stayed drunk for 50 years. During that 50 years the things he did which hurt people including his own children were without number. He whored around and totaled six cars...two of them belonged to someone else. He was selfish and undercut anyone who posed some form of competition for him. When he was just over 70 he went to alcohol rehab and it was one of these deals where they sell one that 2000 year old fable and make them believe they have been forgiven for their sins. Now he conveniently doesn't remember any of those things which happened during at least four decades. I mean it's like he's been at the foot of the cross for 60 years.

A sad tale of a wasted life--especially at the very end.

I'm sorry for your loss (of a brother).

Religion offers two things to believers: absolutions and final solutions.

The absolutions are for atrocities they committed in the past.

The final solutions are for atrocities they want to commit in the future.
