Atheists trying to diminish Christmas and diminish Christianity in general by misquoting the Bible.
What do you think?
If you arent on this ping list NOW and would like to be on it, please Freepmail me.
The Christian message at Christmas time offers real hope and comfort. The humanist offer at Christmas time is for one to consider being obnoxiously unChristian and intellectually dishonest.
The perceptibility of Christ’s love is so enormously magnified at Christmas that virtually everyone can feel it unless they actively fight it.
So evil people fight it.
The flak is thickest over the target.
Well, one can believe there is a real purpose in this life, that there will be ultimate justice, that there is a creator God who is good and we have worth to Him, and who wants to have a relationship with us,
you can believe this is all a cosmic accident, that right and wrong are merely just preferences, and ultimately what you do in life, be it a murderer or a life saving doctor, doesn’t matter because we all die and that’s it, and eventually our sun will explode and destroy any trace of us and wipe out the cosmic accident from existence. None if it matters.
Funny how “humanists” are the biggest supporters of abortion. Especially in African countries.
Getting down to brass tacks, it’s important for religious people to see humanism in the context that they have seen it before, in the Bible.
Religious people say that God is in charge. Humanists say mankind is in charge. People challenging the supremacy of God happens in the Bible, as well as what happened when people challenged the supremacy of God.
Take Nimrod, for example. In his arrogance he decides to build a tower to heaven, so he can go up there and be like God. He really thought he was hot stuff.
Look at Al Gore today. He thinks he controls the weather. It is that same kind of egotistical arrogance that provokes God to kick some rear end. Importantly, not too hard, because mankind does have a role in the scheme of things, but being in charge isn’t it.
So what do you think when you see a humanist doing his thing? You can just shrug and tell yourself that he is setting himself up to get thumped. One way or another. And how that happens really isn’t up to him, which should be some small satisfaction.
Atheists recognize the law of noncontradiction. If they are right, then we are wrong. This goes against the murky “toleration” that says that there is no such thing as right and wrong, that everything reduces to a matter of opinion. They say that religion is bigotry founded on superstition. Their own bigotry is founded on the truth of the matter and is therefore justified.
You complain about atheists “misinterpreting” scripture, but if there was a God who wanted to get a message out to the world, wouldn’t God produce scripture that could not possibly be misinterpreted?
