I was raised in church as you described and I can completely understand how you feel. I consider myself still a christian but have not been to church in a long time. I quit going because I realized there are just as many hypocrites in church as there are outside of church. People go to church to praise god and portray a life of christianity while in god's house. But the moment they step to the parking lot they get in their clicks and talk about what Sue had on .....basically just plain gossip and try to judge everyone. So, to me that is false...I believe you can praise god in your own home and in your own way. God knows when your heart is true and we will all stand before him when it is our time.
Hebrews 10:25
"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

The Day is approaching.

Hmmm, just deny anything you don't like and it won't exist,huh? I wonder if that will work with the IRS.

Still more projection. He didn't say he has a religious belief, you cannot understand that because your mind is too small to comprehend anything being different from you.
You sure are a very hateful person. I bet you keep a sledge hammer with you at all times, to bash those in the head that think different from you.

Atheism is just a lack of belief in a god. It cannot be a religion because of this fact.
I'm really going to have to keep a library of your comments. Just two or three days ago, on a different thread, you said atheism is a religion. I even pointed it out with a reply. Let me see if I can find it.

Who says you have to like it or don't like it? That doesn't matter. Religion is based on myth, that's a fact. Those myths were built on superstitious ritual. Do you seriously think that when God is angry you see it in lightning?

It's hateful to tell you that you're wrong? You are a sad person.

Point that out please, because either you are lying again, or you misread what was typed. So prove it was said, unless you want to give us more evidence that you are a liar.

yes - i believe that it's a gift given to those want it, who ask, knock & seek.
I can agree with that. I would like to ask you what your opinion is about folks that are honestly seeking, and have not received a personal answer as of yet. Are they a member of the “aka selfish denial so you can do whatever you please belief“ as you put it in the post I was replying to?

Never knew I was in the business of defending blasphemers. I simply state my opinion just as everyone else does on here. I oppose faith seekers? Please tell me how.

He is more frightened of the lightening than an electrician on a telephone pole in the rain.

Pft, I'd rather be a fool who's correct than a wise person who's wrong.

No, Numbnuts. You believe in the Christian myth, merely one of thousands of supposed gods.

Let's puzzle through this.

You've said Jesus never existed. Now you say there "is no such thing as a religion for someone who never existed."

So help me out here: Did Jesus exist? Or is Christianity not a religion?

Next thing you know, you'll be claiming Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with god, just like the fundies.

Go figure.
