You know, when I was a Christian, I tried very hard to lead a ‘morally good’ life, according to how I thought that phrase applied in the context of my Christian walk. I’m not saying I always succeeded, but I really did my best to let love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance (wow, I’m surprised I remembered all that. Galatians?) hold sway in my life. I contrast that attitude held by myself and most of my Christian friends back then with what I sometimes see on the net; and I am, frankly, bewildered and even ashamed. cl and his disingenuous argumentation laced with blatant lies throughout. Not to mention the sock puppetry! Vox Dei with his psychopathic arrogance and thoroughly dislikeable manner. Others who are just as bad in their own ways. It all just gives me a lot more respect for those who know very little about what they profess to believe, but KNOW that they don’t know, and yet have managed to integrate the best aspects of their religious experience. In short, they walk the walk, and part of me really respects that.
A popular saying amongst Christians these days is ‘What Would Jesus Do?” I’ll admit it makes me giggle when I think of Jesus inventing imaginary friends, then pretending to argue with them in front of the congregation of the faithful. Or obviously contradicting himself, then getting all pissy like a 5 year old when he’s called on it. Or making references to ‘bukkake’, the pornographic term for a circle of men ejaculating on a woman’s face, in the context of refuting some interlocutor’s position, something Vox is fond of doing. Or is that what Jesus meant when he said ‘Come unto me, ye who are laden’? Doubtful.
Anyway, it strikes me that these insult comics for Christ really aren’t Christians at all. They would like to be, since it seems what motivates them above all else is their fear of going to hell, but they just don’t have what it takes to turn it around. And so they pretend, and all their blogging does is fulfill the twofold purpose of carrying on the pretense in the hopes that Jesus will have pity on them at the end, as well as to unleash their deceit and vitriol on an unsuspecting public. I think that’s called ‘exercising one’s demons’, and by their demeanor I suspect these particulars sons of Lucifer are using steroids or their hellish equivalent.
I don’t know, maybe it’s time for these guys to grow some balls and repent of their wickedness, or sumpin’. You know, get down on their knees and grovel a bit in the hope that Big Daddy hasn’t cut them out of the will yet. In his recent post, cl has hinted at Christian deconverts being turned over to a reprobate, unsalvageable state as the reason why they can’t respond to God anymore. Perhaps this reflects cl’s own fears about his own salvageable status, hm? How about it, cl? You and Jehovah, mano a Godo? I’d pay to see that!
LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
UPDATE: These verses just came to mind-
King James Version (KJV)
6 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
I’m thinking that maybe some of these guys stopped at the first verse, and interpreted it in the affirmative. Read on, lil chilluns, read on!
