ya know....God doesn't hold our individual sins against us (including homosexuality), but He does require that we embrace His Son and the redeeming work that He did for us on the Cross.
the only reason that i chide with the gays on these threads in particular is because THEY require God and the rest of us to embrace their illicit behavior all the while they deny God's Son......
Your god doesn't even treat sins equally.

They might.

I'm not entirely sure it's a good idea - though as a Mick, I sympathize.

I'll be following with some interest.

Quran. Surah 51:1-9
I kinda like Surah 42: "If Allah had so willed, he could have made them a single people; but he admits whom he will to his mercy..."
Sounds like anyone can get in, if He so chooses.
Even atheists and apostates.

That's the ticket. Rely on the Quran to give you the way to heaven.

What does temperature at Earth's core have to do with it? Are you really naive enough to believe the Christian Hell is actually located inside our planet? Is that actually what you're implying?
There is nothing to say it isn't. Hell is below. Hell is hot. Hell is a continuous fire. Do you have any basis for eliminating the earth's core as the actual site of hell? "Where the smoke of their torment ascendeth forever"."They'll gnaw their tongues for the pain.

When do you think this Adam and Eve lived? Ten thousand years ago? Twenty thousand?
The Dna of modern humans goes back over 200,000 thousand years on one mitochrondial line. There are many lines, but only one that goes back that far of women having daughters every generation.
So that is way past when Adam and Eve were here. This is back to the point of us breeding with Neanderthal and we know our ancestors go back to the austropithicine LUCY who is about 2 million years old.
The entire Christian religion is based on the original sin of Adam and Eve. Science has shown that they never existed. There is no original sin, nothing to feel guilty about for being born a human. There may have been a preacher named Jesus, but he definitely was not divine, only made into a hero and a divine inspiration by Paul. Paul created the Christian religion, not Jesus. Paul was a pagan who bought Roman citizenship. Paul created the eucharist. No Jew of any sort would have anything to do with eating human flesh and drinking human blood, which is exactly what that simple ceremony represent. Here is my flesh and my blood. Eat and drink of it. Horrible.
Its hard to imagine what people have been forced to do for their religion cause you cant think any more once you get with the program.
We go back 6500 hundred years to the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve.
Any other theory postulated needs thousands and thousands and millions and millions of years.----Lucy

I vote yes for Scotland. I vote yes for all the bonnie lassies and laddies.
I know one who based in the UK, Sheffield to be exact, who will most assuredly never check in here again. His initials were D.C.

Why I am no longer a christian.

Part 1.

Ok, to be fair, I was never much of a christian anyway. I often wondered why, I had a lot of whys actually, maybe that was why, my pesky curiosity.

Why didn't prayer work? Not just for me but for anybody.

Why weren't other christians joyful?

Why didn't preachers ever want to answer my questions?

Why did christianity resemble a pyramid scheme?

Why was history ignored in lieu of apologetics?

Why was the bible a singular source and in some instances and churches, only one translation was encouraged?

Why couldn't we discuss the missing books? There are a few you know, I knew this because I'd read much older bibles in my childhood than the ones generally available now. They included Enoch, I knew the full stories about the 'Angels' from the age of 4.

Why were logical questions met with "you just have to trust god", every single fcucking time?

Why was I called a daemon for asking questions? I mean, if this "god" character made me and loved me, one of 'his' precious children, the way I am, why would my natural born curiosity, make me a daemon?

Why are so many children abused at the hands of christianity?

Why are so many women abused and demonised at the hands of christianity?

Why have so many people been murdered at the hands of christianity?

Why do christians lie so much, even to themselves?

I know why, it's because it is bullshite indoctrination. The lot of it.

The christian cult, is not only a brainwashing deceptive cult but it is the biggest, most pervasive and viral brainwashing deceptive cult in the history of mankind. Bloody hell, they even demonise thought and glorify the concept of humans being cattle.

AND THEY MAKE BILLIONS OF DOLLARS DOING IT.

Humans are magnificent and divine. Because of christianity, this fact has been not only forgotten by the masses but practically obliterated.

I've been sucked into many many religions in my multiple lives in one and basically think they're all hokum, blarney and pure bullshite but christianity takes the cake and like the others, much as I tried and really wanted to believe in something higher and nobler than the destruction of humanity, it did not take.

I can talk to my self just fine without believing in invisible fictional characters.

Admittedly, I wasn't much of a christian, I was kind, well read, inquisitive, skeptical, honest and mostly laughing, especially when away from other christians, but why am I no longer a christian?

I don't like being lied to and I am not cattle, additionally, I was never comfortable with the notion of believing fictional characters to be real and honestly, Buffy would be a much better deity.

To be continued…

Well, for one thing, the earth's core won't stay hot forever. For that matter, neither will any star in the universe. Eventually, the entire universe will be a balmy absolute zero. So if there is a hell, it would have to exist outside the universe, in some magical other plane of existence.
