Evangelicalism has been the repellent for me. Hearing more than three words from one of them sends me running off the Christ reservation. They want me to believe their god condemns good people who do good things but won’t drink their Kool Aid to hell, while that same god rewards the scumbags who pour it.

Case in point: two monogamous people in a loving relationship who happen to be gay are an abomination heading straight to Hell. But, a lying scumbag who cheated on all three of his wives, paid off pornstars and demonstrates unnatural affections for his daughter is god’s chosen leader. Are you ****ing kidding me?

After one of those preachers opens his yap, I’m going to look at the entire religion as whacked. At that point, it becomes impossible to reconcile good Christ from bad Christ. The whole batch is contaminated, like Romane lettuce after a general recall.

Well, we are all dying from the moment we are born, yet we still have the innate desire to live forever...the Bible tells us that is the way we were created so there must be a valid reason for that...

"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has even put eternity in their heart; yet mankind will never find out the work that the true God has made from start to finish." Ecclesiastes 3:11

Which shows we all need salvation from sin and death...we either surrender to God or surrender to sin and death...I choose God...

Evangelicalism is really just a device to exploit the ignorant.

ya we want to live things that don't die out

and if god cared for you you would not die if you did not want to no need for a christ

your being sold on the idea of what you want in exchange for your faith and obedience its a scam

or the work of a very very queer god who wants to make it look like a scam

Living forever is wayyyy overrated. I don’t want to say that I am smarter than everyone. But on this living forever thing....trust me. You don’t really want that.

Besides the hypocrisy of Evangelicals, there is another reason I reject Christianity. The premise of it makes no ****ing sense.

Here we are in this imperfect world, where children suffer and the old die miserable deaths, often in diapers with minds that no longer hold center. But ask a Christian why, and he says because god made it so.

In the same breath these people tell us the world has to be challenging and harsh, they say heaven, however, is perfect. So, one begs the question. Why would god make it so that one place sucks and the other is more blissful than an ice cream shop on a hot summer night? It seems to me that he could have just skipped the living on earth part.
