Now you're relapsing again. This is why you don't get invited to a lot of parties other than church socials.

YOu are the generation of vipers, i.e., you were generated by some snakes.
Your parents/religious leaders had no real interest in serving God; they only intended to use His glory to fill their own houses with the treasure of the poor and faithful.
So they practiced hypocrisy and lying and double standards and exposed you to it. So now you emerge having no real reason to trust the God that you saw your parents show utter disregard for...
Your parents/religious leaders dealt with God as if he was not even seeing their inequities; and now you come saying that He doesnt exist.
You are the children of crooks; a generation of vipers.
That is pretty funny. If you knew my mother or my late father, you would know how funny it is. My mother is probably one of the oldest members of her church (I just got off the phone 10 minutes ago after she called me after being at church this morning, and singing in the choir) and likely one of the most active members, and still tries to work and contribute her time as if she was 40 years younger. She lives in her own home still, on likely close to a poverty level income, donates one of the biggest amounts of anyone at her church to the church (God if you will) and obsesses all the time about family members who may not be as active as she is nowadays, and concerned for their souls when they die.

Without even knowing anything about you or your parents, I am guessing they are/were far better real Christians than anyone you know, including your own parents. Of course that is nothing to brag about now, for me, as I no longer believe that what she does and what she taught us to do, has the same meaning as I once did.

But she thinks it has meaning and her work and life in the church won't end until she is dead (assuming she is not left in a vegetative state, by a stroke or something and lives a long time in that condition).

You and others here have a very strange way of showing your Christianity, which does tend to make some of us doubt that you tell us any truths at all. We know definitely that some of you seldom tell the truth.

That's crazy talk.

What effect do you suppose that posting like that has on people that reject your core beliefs - people who believe that you are actually laughing alone?

Let me tell you: You have as much chance of selling people on your religion posting like you do as a publicly drunken alcoholic staggering door to door while stinking of booze has of trying to sell people on the virtues of alcoholism.

Just thought that you'd like to know in case that's not what you were going for.

That wondering stuff was just a figure of speech, right? Of course you know where they get their ideas from. Every cult teaches that it has arcane knowledge, while outsiders are fools that "have eyes but see not"
Yes, sarcasm or a rhetorical question, something like that. Most of it I actually put down to low intelligence or lack of knowledge, but I get tired of repeating the same stuff, so I throw in the occasional question.:)

Don't you worry, darlin', my God loves you whether or not you love him, good people will always help you if you need it, they'll never ask anything in return. You keep believing what you believe, may the God within you give you strength to stay true to your belief, until the end!!

If religion is not permitted to be taught in schools, then neither should evolution/atheism. Fair comment, I reckon.
Regarding atheism in the schools, as other than a definition of what the word means, what else would one teach about it? It is a non-thing; thus has no information to teach. Similarly should there be courses on people who don't believe in Santa or unicorns. Likely both of those would have some real information behind them, because we have quite a history of Santa mythology which naturally becomes a myth for everyone at some point in their childhood.

Evolution, on the other hand is a science which goes back more than 100 years and has been fully supported by scientific evidence, so it is in a whole different category than belief and atheism. In schools that allow truths to be taught, it would be remiss to not teach evolution.

[9] Man's mind is too puny to grasp the immensity of God's truth and justice.
Note that particular point is always from the mind of a man/woman, and in their case usually the mind is extremely puny relative to humanity as a whole. It always amazes me that humans make the error of stating that they understand God and the Bible, but others, who don't follow God and the Bible, cannot understand because man's mind is too puny. Does that mean, then, they perceived themselves as God himself when they speak those words, or how, with their puny mind did they come up with that idea?

In reality though it is usually the more developed minds of men which have the higher education, and delve more fully into these things that are the least likely to believe in an invisible god.

Not to be combative, but evolution is a theory, not a science. But I get your point.

Stop trying to convince strangers that you are an excellent person. The word of an anonymous person on Topix means less than nothing to us.

This is better, but I think that you can do even better still. Try to use nice phrases like "raspberry scones" and "dewy meadows" more instead of things like "kill you all" and "bolts of lightening from my ass."
It's "lightning", without an "e".

Tell us again how nurturing the universe is.
