There is no hell
There is no hell
Whilst I agree with what this is trying to say, it seems flawed by the fact that it assumes the christian will "finally" submit to saying the person will go to hell. I've stumbled upon better Atheist 'proverbs'!
This concept would fly right over their heads.
I don't wanna.
I'm an Atheist. This is a shitty argument.
you church goers take this way too seriously
Not all Christians are hating, bigoted, narrow minded sheep. But, the experiment is worth a try with some of my most extremist-fundamentalist friends...
I follow Jesus and have a real hard time believing that just for not believing, that one should go through torment for the rest of eternity by a loving, creating God. On the other side, I do understand that the meaning of the Bible and many of the ways it's interpreted have been grossly misguided. It says that those that did not believe would not wake up to the second life but forever burn in the bottomless pit that Satan will make house in for 1000 years. How can you burn or feel pain if you're a carcass? Hell is definitely where Lucifer is going but it's been abused by provocateurs over the centuries to make people fear forever damnation so the Catholic Church could collect taxes on Christians across Europe. Why the hell do you think the missionaries were sent to look for new lands? Sure they could do their preaching but the politics back home were in favor of more money, land and power.
Full of assumptions.
What an idiotic attack against straw-man pseudo-Christianity.
To begin, it might be helpful to consider St. Paul's letter to the Romans as an example of the authentic Christian tradition. Paul points out that even those who lived before the revelation of Christ have no excuse for immoral behavior because what everyone ought to do is, at least to some extent, written in his heart.
It is true that Christianity has always considered baptism a requirement for salvation, but neither the early Church nor traditional Christianity to this day has ever so presumed to constrain the mercy of God as to deny the possibility of extraordinary means of baptism. Such extraordinary means are rather presumed available to those persons who lived before the time of Christ and to those persons of any time who live without the ability to comprehend the need for ordinary baptism.
Of course, there are some fundamentalist groups who have a view at least somewhat similar to that of the caricature on the linked page.
But to claim that this is somehow a view intrinsic to Christianity is absurd.
There's really no need to be so confrontational.
... and then what? Spend the next few hours wondering why you don't have any friends?
And why the fucking fuck-fuck is it an image instead of text?
