Return to "Religion" essay


(R) Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell.
(MB) Perhaps the world is going to hell because the *real* God is angry that so many Christians are worshipping some other deity? Perhaps it is going to hell because believers waste so much time on their religion when they could be using it much more productively?

(R) Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.
(MB) Even the liberal bias of the media is more believable than the age-old supernatural nonsense in the Bible.

(R) Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think, say, or do anything the Bible says. Or is it scary?
(MB) Of course, this doesn't account for the billions who don't buy the Christian idea of "heaven". Nor, does it account for the fact that Christians, themselves, have numerous contradictory ideas of what it actually takes to get to heaven. What's scary is how much time and effort that Christians will waste on a useless pursuit.

(R) Funny how someone can say "I believe in God" but still follow Satan (who, by the way, also "believes" in God).
(MB) Perhaps, they consider Satan to be preferable to God (who, by the way, also "believes" in Satan). An all-powerful God could eradicate Satan (and any belief in him) with the merest afterthought. If Satan (and belief in him) exists, it is because God prefers them to exist. Why should Christians question the Will of God?

(R) Funny how you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.
(MB) Jokes are funny, while religious spam is just silly.

(R) Funny how the lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene pass freely through cyberspace, but the public discussion of Jesus is suppressed in the school and workplace.
(MB) The lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene are *also* suppressed in the school and workplace! Does this mean that Jesus falls into those categories?

(R) Funny how someone can be so fired up for Christ on Sunday, but be an invisible Christian the rest of the week. Are you laughing?
(MB) People go to church so that others will see them there. Perhaps, active belief in Jesus is not as compelling as some folks would have us believe.

(R) Funny how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you for sending it to them.
(MB) This would be demonstrating your respect for their beliefs instead of showing contempt for them by forcing your religion upon them. Why do Christians believe that they have a right to do this?

(R) Funny how I can be more worried about what other people think of me than what God thinks of me. Are you thinking?
(MB) If God exists, he has already determined my fate. The same can't be said for the people with whom I associate. Funny how that works, eh?
