There's nothing more supernatural than someone rising from the grave after having been dead for three days.

God's balls, you're stupid!

Hey, stupid!

Yeah, you!

You DO worship the same god as the muslims. You both worship the god of abraham.

I understand that you're a liar and a hypocrite, and that you hate the truth.

can you tell me what the "truth" means to you, hon?:)
Yes, I can. But you're a christian; you wouldn't understand it.

It read like "the same old gobbledygook" to me.

We are both correct this time.:P

Yeah, he was projecting his own personal beliefs due to an inability to consider that others could be different than him, thus, an appeal to ignorance. It is also the most common fallacy pulled by religious fanatics and is displayed in so many ways as to almost be universal. Just remember, when a person is projecting it's technically an appeal to ignorance, assuming that no one in a different position can possibly exist.

Some common ones:

Atheists require faith.
Atheists are satanic.
All christians agree.
There is only one god, just called different things.

It gets easier to spot once you realize what these fallacies are.

Repent and return to your first love.
I share a similar story as the first writer. I went all the way from convert to participant to seminary student to ordained pastor. Yet, my 'feelings' were never the lead; instead, like CS Lewis, my faith was reasoned and truth. I believed because I knew it was true, not because I felt it was true.

I served as the pastor of a church; it was a role that required me to work 40/week at another job to make a living and ministry took 40-60/week as well. It was exhausting but I felt called.

It was when I buried the last member of the church and the district leaders closed the book that I found myself alone. At the time when I needed their help and support I found myself disconnected and hurting. My grief was intense and it has never really healed.

I still believe, I just don't know what do to about it. Every time I try going to church my grief and pain rise to the surface. I've had several pastors tell me that they have nothing to offer and no meaningful healing. I used to believe that God would heal our hurts, but it hasn't worked for me.

So, don't tell someone to "Repent and Return to their First Love." It's a simplistic answer that doesn't answer the hurt and pain. Jesus never gave a trite cliché answer to anyone, but so many Christians only have those. I've noticed it is easier to answer with a cliché than to actually listen, love, and admit you don't know how to fix something.

I have grown tired of tying to understand what the willfully ignorant write.
I used to try to teach them, I realize that was a colossal waste of time.
