: Alright, I just got through reading most of these posts, and since I
haven't threw my two cents in, I'm feeling left out. So, here it goes.
(This will probably sound very redundant after all the other replies, but
no one is forcing you to read it)

: PunkMonkey, did you meet God in person? Did he tell you with his
own words (or perhaps by means of Mesotron if the movies are
correct) that Christianity is the only way?

-Yep, that's what the Bible sez!

Hah! The very idea that there is only one way to heaven is absurd! Do
you honestly believe that anyone who deos follow your religion is
going to hell? What kind of benevolent celestial being denies an
afterlife to people that haven't even had the chance to become a

-The Bible says that ALL will be judged on what they did with their
knowledgeo of God. It's inborn into us. It's not for us to know the
exact details of how God is going to deal with each of us. God gave
his Son's life to erase the sins of the world. To spit on and deny is
sacrifice is the gravest of sins. Think about if you sacrificed your son
so a death row inmate could gain freedom. Then that inmate ignored
your sacrifice - didn't even say thank you - IN FACT, he went around
denying that you had anything to do with his salvation, that he did it
himself! And you wasted your son's life on him! How would that
make you feel? God desires that NO ONE live in eternal damnation.
That's why He provided a way out! All you have to do is believe and
accept it. But, no. Your pride is to great. Well, God can't do any more
for you without robbing you of your free will. He didn't make us robots,
you know.

No, those are not the words of God, but rather corrupted priests and
scholars in the early 100 A.D.s that sought only to control with fear. It's
a very simple equation, folks - Priests and scholars need money to
fund the steady growth of thousands of christian churches. Of course,
the donations from all the good Christians help, but it seems the
drawing power of our savior isn't quite enough to bring in the big
bucks. So we change a few words, add a new couple verses to the
bible, and suddenly, people are flocking the mad to save themselves
from... well, themselves. Suddenly, God is angry and vengeful, and
Jesus wasn't here just to save us, but also to warn us about not
being good christians and following his path.

-Not a word of the original translation of the Bible has been changed
or added to since the origin of the book. This is scholarly and
historical FACT. To argue against it is...stupid. Of course it takes
money to spread the gospel. Missionary journeys ain't free. Building
utilities ain't free. The government takes so much of your money to
fund useless things. God asks for so little.

Now, Priests begin preaching that you can buy your way into heaven
with donations to the church, and suddenly, all the easily
manipulated people are flocking to their savior.

-Anybody who preaches that preaches a lie. Jesus has nothing to do
with that and condemns it in the Bible.

I'm not a very religious person, in fact I honestly have no religion. I
think there is a God, and an afterlife, but I don't believe in any one
single deity, because it's that kind of blind faith that leads to wars and
violence. How can you hold one thing to be true, well someone else
holds the exact opposite to be true? It deosn't work deos it? Uh-oh,
now we've got a problem with a seemingly very simple solution - kill
everyone who deosn't believe.

-Yes, that's just what Jesus said. Kill everybody else. Your ignorance
is astounding!

Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated. And all in the name of
our lord, Jesus Christ. Wonderful. I hope you're comfortable
slaughtering people because of some work of FICTION written before
you were even born. Asshole.

-The Bible is historical FACT. It's proven through archaeology. Do
some real research before you go spouting ignorance and lies. So
what if it was written before I was born? The Declaration of
Independence was written before YOU were born, so I guess you
have no freedoms listed therein, huh? If these weak arguments are
the best you can do, maybe you should just be quiet. Find out the
Truth for yourself.
