Christians... The church is dead.
Christ came for a threefold purpose into this world. To share the manifest glory of God in the flesh. To teach and lead by example the way of righteousness and humility, and finally to be condemned and rejected for the sins of the world. The church today has become a far cry from these initial precepts of faith. It is a rotten corpse that scarcely resembles anything truly "Christian". Today it is about "feeling" not faith. A typical church today is concerned with attendance and green paper. They achieve the first by spouting a hollow, generic "feel good" message that tip-toes on scripture like a robber in your home. They maintain the second by reminding you of your destination if you falter from THEIR definition of faith. Any true Christian today should be not only disgusted by the wickedness of the world at large... It should abhor the very four walls that have the audacity to call themselves a church in the first place. I instead call it a God rackett. Apostasy has set in like gangrene... Listen to any radio "ministry" you can always get the pastors message for a donation of X... God's word and message are the good news... Free to all who have ears to hear. Do you think when Christ sent out the apostles by 2's that after telling them NOT to take a coat... No money... No staff... That he finished with "and make sure you extort those who listen... You know to maintain your ministry". The fact that those who are proclaimed Athiests or agnostic have such a hard time digesting the truth of the word does not surprise me... The typical "Christian" today is a joke... A person who likes to compare clothing on Sunday. A person so brainwashed by religion they don't even know what they believe. Walking in Jesus is not easy... And defending the faith is even harder. I was saved because God found me... Not because I was pressured to walk forward to a pulpit. I haven't set foot in a "Church" in over 15 years... And you won't find me in one until we all make an account of our lives before God himself.

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
I was raised in the church and turned away from God in my teens and early twenties for all the reasons you stated here. :(

I got lost in the New Age and God convicted me and brought me back to him. It's been almost three years now and I've done more Biblical study a week than I work at my job lol. I find it sad too that I would say 90% of my beliefs are in stark contrast to the organized church because I simply do not see their doctrines supported in the Bible. Most of it is man's traditions, man's ego and pride, man's greed. I had to totally empty my mind of what was indoctrinated into me as a child to see clearly what was being taught in the scriptures. And let me tell you, it is a beautiful, redemptive, and powerful story. :)

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
Absolutely. I was an alcoholic veteran sitting on my couch wondering why I had done the things I had done... Wondering what the hell we were doing as a nation. Then I just became "aware". I'm still an alcoholic... Still struggle with life as a whole. But I know the truth... It has set me free.. And I firmly believe the greatest damage being done to Christianity today is not from the world... Not from non-believers... It comes from the places that call themselves a Church. A bunch of smug walled up assholes anymore. I want to see Joel Osteen welcome a filthy vagrant into his 50,000 plus congregation and share the gospel with him without shame. I bet there is more cash flow in just attire and vehicles on a Sunday at his fortress than the GDP of some small nations.

Good on ya OP you understand at last the TRUTH..and here it is..the TRUTH about the modern church.


The modern Christian

1)First ya have to say a sinners prayer.

2)Then you have to go to church three times a week(At least)..each time giving ten percent of whats in your wallet to the fat dude up the front who drives luxury cars and lives in a mansion.

3)Then you have to learn to hate everyone else thats NOT a fundie seeing them as doomed and not worth your trouble to love or help or feed..as ALL your time and money gets dedicated to the fat greedy pastor up the front..

4)After a while you have to learn to HATE all other fundies or denominations with a PASSION and see THEM as wrong and DOOMED as well..if they so much as disagree with your denominations view on what day to worship..or what to eat..or the rapture debate..or even if adam had a belly button. (Ive seen churches coime apart over this..seriously)

5)You also must LOOK like the world...dress like the world..act like the world...set your church up to look like a rock concert hall..and fornicate and divorce and sleep around with all the women in the church..all the while condemning others of the world who do this. In short..you have to be as CLOSE as possible to what the world IS..but EXCUSE all your "Sins" with the "Im not perfect..just forgiven CRAP"

After doing all of this..THEN..you just might..according to THEM..be worthy of heaven.

THEN...if you do what THEY do (FORGET what they SAY..if you DO what THEY do)..you will feel offended by simple truths like this....

I remember reading in there somewhere where Jesus was having trouble with the puffed up pharisees..who JUST like todays modern so called "Christians"..were giving him a hard time over “doctrinal” issues..and he said to them..something like..

"The drunkards and the prostitutes and the tax men swindlers will get into the kingdom before you."

From what I can ascertain from it..its the ORDINARY "Sinners" who Jesus was referring to who would be more WORTHY of the kingdom then the pharisitical religious ones of the day.

I suppose its because its better to be an HONEST sinner than a DISHONEST lying saint in the end.

God will save according to whats on the heart..ACCORDING to the bible..JESUS own words..yep..he SAID it...

Something about sheep and goats...one lot GAVE a toss about others...and another lot DID NOT..

It said NOTHING about "Did you say a prayer and accept Jesus into you heart"..THAT rubbish aint even IN the Bible..id LOVE to know where they got the "Sinners prayer" GARBAGE from..cause it just aint IN there.

NO..from what JESUS himself actually SAID...its sheep..or its GOATS..right?..and WHAT was the DIFFERENCE between these sheep and goats??

ON the surface..NO difference..BOTH lots claimed "Salvation"....and BOTH used his name..and did miracles..and this and that IN Jesus name..

..so WHY were ONE lot sheep..and the OTHER lot GOATS?????

BECAUSE..ONE lot was UNSELFISH..CARING..VISITED POOR DUDES IN PRISON..CLOTHED THE NAKED...GAVE TO THE POOR AND NEEDY..AND ASKED NOTHING IN RETURN..they were HUMBLE..and POLITE and full of LOVE.

The GOATS..SAID all the "RIGHT" words...they SPOKE the LINGO..but they just DID NOT GIVE a FLYING @&^$ about ANYONE but themselves. They spent their time debating and arguing and BEING WRONG..YEAR AFTER YEAR..and they did NOT feed anyone..or do any GOOD for anyone..they just DID NOT CARE about ANYone but THEMSELVES...

And if these goats DID do something..cause they all said something like "But Lord..we did many miracles in your name..and cast out demons and stuff..AD NAUSEUM.."

They did it FOR SELFISH GAIN..to be NOTICED....or to make LOTS OF MONEY from MOVIES and BOOKS and NEW AGE GARBAGE like the "LEFT BEHIND" series which made MILLIONS..while the poor and the needy STARVED AND DIED!..they have ZERO Love..ZERO humility..and STUFF ALL COURAGE...they IGNORE the POOR..live in multi million dollar MANSIONS.

While SO many are STARVING..NEW AGE WOLVES like COPELAND and HINN and DUPLANTIS and that DOLLAR viper..live like KINGS on the MONEY they BILKED AND CONNED out of the "NEW AGE SHEEP....who followed so BLINDLY that lakeland CRAP which was the EPITOME of UTTER HIPOCRISY...

What does Jesus say to these NEW AGE "BELIEVERS" EH???

DEPART from me ye WORKERS of utter GARBAGE AND LIES....cause I NEVER KNEW YOU...

Jesus said something about VOMITING these greedy self serving creatures out of his mouth.

Week after week you turn up..hand over all your money for new seats and screens and better air con..while the poor and the hungry just down the road STARVE!!!

While the fat assed pastor..fat gutted and lazy..preaches about FASTING??...and MORE money..and MORE money..for the never ending BUILDING program that all churches seem to have.

STUFF the poor..WHO CARES about the needy..and TOUGH LUCK for the people of the world..cause they are all gonna BURN right??

ALL YOU have to do is keep turning up with wallet OPEN..and BRAIN disengaged..to feed the never ending circle of NEW AGE EASY LISTENING FLESH PLEASING GARBAGE..GIVE to get...get PISSED on the holy spirit..ALWAYS about FEELING GOOD..SELF SELF SELF..always thinking of your SELF!!!

This lot ONLY care about what THEY can get..they dont give a flying *#$% about the hurting,,the needy...the downtrodden..you FLY IN THE FACE OF EVERYTHING JESUS EVER TAUGHT!!!

IN the name of MONEY!!!

MONEY and FEELINGS is their GOD!!!!

"BUt but..we give money to the poor"....they might say..

WHAT OF IT??

They DO it ONLY to win a few more BROWNIE POINTS...they DONT do it cause you really CARE!!!!..they do it ONLY so they have a better chance of being raptured..or getting some reward..or feeling better..or being blessed more..

THEYJUST DONT CARE!!!...and when they DO..its all a NEW AGE FEEL GOOD "BLESS ME BLESS ME" SHOW!!

They have turned the TRUTH into a way to FEEL GOOD..ESCAPE DOOM..and MAKE MONEY..and GET BLESSED!!!

THEY DONT KNOW ANYTHING EXCEPT what THEY WANT to hear..and they KNOW ONLY WHAT THEY HEARD!!

They WILL ignore everything I am saying now FOR THIS REASON!!

They will READ this...and say "THATS NOT ME..I DONT DO THAT!!

Well...every time they walk into a church and open their wallets up..

THEY DO!!


THEY FEED THE MACHINE..the money making machine..IDOLATRY!!!!

WHEN will these new age easy road zero suffering fat lazy so called christians realise its NOT A GAME!!!

ITS NOT a "BLESS ME FEEL GOOD CLUB"

But thats how its TREATED.

I went to these churches,, ..for the last 40 years..ive seen em all slide into HELL..thinking they are OH so HOLY..and going to heaven.

WHAT JOKE its become...

And they will ALWAYS EXCUSE this with..

"WE ARE NOT PERFECT..JUST FORGIVEN"

WHAT a lot of GARBAGE,,a SELF justifying concience excusing load of UTTER CRAP!!


THEN....if you keep following along the same lines as the modern christian..the following rant will APPLY TO YOU TOO..wont that be great??...(Ill actually use SCRIPTURE to back this up..the words of JESUS HIMSELF...which MOST of them TOTALLY DISREGARD..cause they like to do their OWN thing WAY too much...

MATTHEW 23
13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

Yeah..this lot LOVES to preach a whole lot of HIPOCRITICAL CONDEMING SOUL TEARING MIND NUMBING CRAP which turns people AWAY from the TRUE way...with smooth deceptive words and well worded sermons designed to feed their WALLETS..and make MILLIONS from the endless LIES of TWISTED SCRIPTURE(The left behind movies and books)....

WHY wont they do what he SAYS?..They wont enter in THEMSELVES..and by their UTTERLY ABOMINABLE BEHAVIOUR AND EXAMPLE...no one ELSE wants to either because they LOOK at these pathetic easy living cowardly liars and think..RIGHTLY SO..that CHRISTIANS are NOTHING BUT A PACK OF ARGUING SELF CENTERED GREEDY ADULTEROUS LYING HYPOCRITES


14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Yeah..they just LOVE the OH SO HOLY prayers..babbling away in tongues and blaspheming the holy spirit with their UTTER ABOMINATIONS (Getting DRUNK on the holy spirit)..THIS according to THE BIBLE is what they do..USING something HOLY to make MONEY..is BLASHEMY..and using the holy spirit to promote your MONEY MAKING LIES is BLASPHEMY against the HOLY SPIRIT...ACCORDING to THEIR OWN BIBLE...they DO feed on widows houses..they rake in offerings year after year..from old widows who are too weak to resist the SNARES you set..SHAME on them...these pathetic LIFE destroying VIPERS!!

But wait,,,there is MORE.....

15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.

Yeah..they do this too..seeking ever more victims...who start out as ordinary people...they prey on their fear..their terror..with stories of DOOM and HELLFIRE..you convert them..and then turn THEM TOO..into the SAME brand of UTTER HIPOCRITES AS THEM!!!

23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.


Yeah,,they LOVE to rake ya tithes in dont they??..they ONLY pay it to get BLESSED..its all based on GREED and SELFISHNESS.IF they really GAVE a toss about anyone but themselves..they would GIVE that money to the POOR and the HUNGRY..BUT NO..they give it to these SWINDLERS to put new STAGES and SCREENS in their churches..to buy in the latest christian ROCK BAND..so they can ACT just like the WORLD they always CONDEMN....


BUT the list of your SHAME goes ON..(I could write a BOOK on their long trail of HIPOCRISY..)

25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.

Yeah..they LOVE to turn up to church..all spiffy looking..all smiles...but within its all pure HELL..as they battle with the FACADE..hoping the REAL human they are deep inside does not SHOW..as they battle with LUST and ANGER..and HATE..and all the while jealousy and envy grows..and greed..and slander....while church after church falls apart as minister after minister is caught YET again with their cock frimly planted in the vagina of a woman who is NOT THEIRS...HINN..SWAGGART..all of em..BENTLY..what a total FARCE you vipers are...and you know what????ONE common DENOMINATOR among all of these CHARLATANS???.....MONEY MONEY GREED AND MORE MONEY..and ADULTERY

BUT the list goes ON.....

27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.

They look all clean..but inside they are DIRTY LUSTFUL COWARDLY SELFISH VIPERS.

And THIS according to THE BIBLE..is WHAT Jesus is gonna DO to LIARS LIKE THEM....

51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the HYPOCRITES: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the LAKE which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

Let me break this down a bit so these heartless vipers can FINALLY understand it eh??


8 But the fearful,

(YEP..thats THE NEW AGE CHRISTIAN RAPTURE ADDICTS..always AFRAID and wanting to get OUTTA here while everyone else BURNS

and unbelieving,

(Yep..thats this lot TOO..cause if they actually BELIEVED the bible like they SAY they do..they would NOT be such a bunch of loveless lying hipocritical LIARS)

and the abominable,

(Yes..thats this lot too..their behaviour towards their brothers and the rest of the world is just ABOMINABLE!...an ABOMINATION!!

and murderers,

(HOW many widows have died in their homes..MURDERED by their lack of funds for more medicine because THEY conned them out of their money??..or told sick people to STOP taking their medicine because if they did NOT they lacked FATH and God would not heal them..PURE rubbish and LIES..they are WORSE than JWS refusing blood to dying children in need of a blood transfusion)

and whoremongers,

(Yep..how many of them secretly sleep around..or lust after women or men in their heart?..whoreing after flesh or money..or gain..THIS is what it means..a deep endless lusting to GRATIFY THEMSELVES)

and sorcerers,

(AHH yes..the MAIN one that the pastors of these illuminati NEW AGE CON artists love..sorcery..beguiling with words..using the "Anointing" like a drug..when its ALL just a manufactured atmosphere brought about to BEWITCH and SWINDLE..and THIS is what it means)

and idolaters,

(Idolatry..the modern churches FAVOURITE passtime..they worship WORSHIP..and FEELINGS..and PEOPLE..and MONEY..and BOOKS..and MOVIES..seems they idolise ANYTHING..but GOD..what a bunchh of UTTER AND TOTAL LIARS)

and all liars,shall have their part in the LAKE which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

SELF explainatory is it NOT?)

8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor EFFEMINATE, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The church today has become a far cry from these initial precepts of faith. It is a rotten corpse that scarcely resembles anything truly "Christian". Today it is about "feeling" not faith. A typical church today is concerned with attendance and green paper. They achieve the first by spouting a hollow, generic "feel good" message that tip-toes on scripture like a robber in your home. They maintain the second by reminding you of your destination if you falter from THEIR definition of faith. Any true Christian today should be not only disgusted by the wickedness of the world at large... It should abhor the very four walls that have the audacity to call themselves a church in the first place. I instead call it a God rackett. Apostasy has set in like gangrene... Listen to any radio "ministry" you can always get the pastors message for a donation of X... God's word and message are the good news... Free to all who have ears to hear. Do you think when Christ sent out the apostles by 2's that after telling them NOT to take a coat... No money... No staff... That he finished with "and make sure you extort those who listen... You know to maintain your ministry". The fact that those who are proclaimed Athiests or agnostic have such a hard time digesting the truth of the word does not surprise me... The typical "Christian" today is a joke... A person who likes to compare clothing on Sunday. A person so brainwashed by religion they don't even know what they believe. Walking in Jesus is not easy... And defending the faith is even harder. I was saved because God found me... Not because I was pressured to walk forward to a pulpit. I haven't set foot in a "Church" in over 15 years... And you won't find me in one until we all make an account of our lives before God himself.

Psalms 146:3 Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.

John 5:31 If I (Jesus) bear witness of myself, my witness is not true (false).

John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. (8) And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: (9) Of sin, because they believe not on me; (10) Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; (11) Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Numbers 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Job 25:4 How then can man be justified with God? or how can he be clean that is born of a woman? [5] Behold even to the moon, and it shineth not; yea, the stars are not pure in his sight. [6] How much less man, that is a worm? and the son of man, which is a worm?

And THIS!!!!!!

One thing all christians have in common is

1)FEAR..they fear demons..they fear hell..they fear god..the fear sin..they fear sinning. Their whole lives DWELL on and IN and THROUGH FEAR. Get them together in large groups and the fear FEEDS of itself.

2)WEAKNESS. They NEED to hang around others like themselves so as not to give in to their SELF confessed "WEAKNESSES". Its all about BEING weak. The weaker you are the HOLIER you are. They THRIVE on weakness. They make millions from it. They sell books to "Strenghten" the weak knees. Its all about being utter and total WUSSES.

3)SICKNESS. Its their favourite hobby. You want to see SICK UNHEALED SUFFERING PEOEPLE..go to a church. They CLAMOUR for healing for all their "SICKNESSES"..of the mind..of the body..of the soul..its ALL based around being SICK and WEAK and CONSTANTLY in FEAR.

TRY it..go to almost any church for at least three weeks in a row so you can get the gist of what they are on about..what they say and think and do when they are together...what the sermons are always about besides MONEY.

TRY it..and see SICKNESS and WEAKNESS and FEAR..in all its glory.

I KNOW..IVE BEEN THERE.

Christians for the most part are selfish pricks.

And ive known THOUSANDS of them.

I was raised in the churches and ALL of them were all cowering, fear obsessed, self centered, heartless, uncaring pricks..they ONLY care about themselves..their own point of view..their own salvation..and "Getting it right" so God would not burn them alive forever in hell.

I saw healing meetings by the score..wall to wall sick people..and NOT ONE ever healed.

I saw a man slash his wrists on a church step...blood everywhere..and the head pastor just walked right past him..NOT caring..I saw children abused and molested and women sleeping around with all the men in the churches..I saw marriage break ups by the score..I saw head pastors caught again and again with their cock planted in the vaginas of women who were not their wives..ive heard sermon after sermon about money money and more money and if you didnt give God will curse you with illness or death..or send you ro burn in hell..

I saw thousands of fear filled manipulated cold hearted cowering people..afraid of their own shadow..always fearing..guilt tripped into giving more and more and more to the fat greedy pastors who now and then had the GALL to preach about fasting..while their guts hung over their belts.

Its all a fear mongering money making excuse for SIN and MORE sin...because"THEY are not perfect..JUST forgiven"

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
WoW, I pray you all find peace in this life for the next.

It's very difficult I can sympathize with the many posters in here. I gave my life to Jesus may,16th, 2011 and have lost many worldly things. Yet, I've gained soooo much more. I too drank (alcoholic) smoked cigs (pack ana half/day) used drugs (many kinds) hated my job even though it paid well and many other shackles society in general offers.

We are under HEAVY Satanic influences and it's not easy to get out from under it. Op, God bless you for wanting to change and realizing your sins and having the courage to repent.

All I can offer you is encouragement and prayers that Jesus help you on this narrow path.

For me less is more, be quick to listen and slow to speak, so many times my tongue got me in such terrible situations. And finally slow to anger, my temper is vastly improved and is still very much a work in progress.

Best wishes, brother, David.

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
No clue what church you guys went to, mine doesn't ask for money, only if you want to give btw its like 1 dollar on a Sunday. You go once a week unless there is a holy day the week of easter. There are no mortal sins, anyone can be forgiven through confession or even if you make positive changes yourself.

I dont know where you guys went to church. Sounds like an odd place.

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. (18) For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.


The Mission of Jesus

Matthew 13:10 And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? (11) He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. (12) For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. (13) Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. (14) And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, (Isaiah) which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive: (15) For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them. (16) But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.

Following what Jesus is saying here is he is saying that the prophecy of Isaiah has to be fulfilled and he is doing that.

So what was that prophecy?

Isaiah 6:8 Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. (9) And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not. (10) Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest (for fear that) they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed. (11) Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate, (12) And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land. (13) But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.

Yes to lie to you all and bring about the end of the world.

Christians your hearts have waxed gross.

A lying Jesus tricked you and now you're obscene!

Make the heart of this people fat,.... Gross and heavy, stupid and unteachable, hard and obdurate.

There was a parable jesus spoke once which sums it up rather succinintly.

I will put it into modern everyday well observed terms

Luk 18:10 Two blokes logged onto GLP to post; the one a Modern day christian, and the other an ordinary sinner.

Luk 18:11 The modern day christian posted and ranted thus , God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this athiest.
Luk 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess and I tell everyone I meet that you are going to burn them alive forever in unmitigated eternal rage.

Luk 18:13 And the ordinary sinner, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as a finger to answer this rant, but smote upon his keyboard, saying, God..if you are really there..you just CANT be the merciless and utter cunt they portray you as...I know im full of faults and swear and smoke and all that..I dont hide this..because if you are there then there is no point in pretending im perfect because being God you would see all and understand why I feel the way I do and have trouble accepting what they say about you.

Luk 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.


Better to be an honest sinner..than a two faced hypocritical saint.

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
Christ came for a threefold purpose into this world. To share the manifest glory of God in the flesh. To teach and lead by example the way of righteousness and humility, and finally to be condemned and rejected for the sins of the world. The church today has become a far cry from these initial precepts of faith. It is a rotten corpse that scarcely resembles anything truly "Christian". Today it is about "feeling" not faith. A typical church today is concerned with attendance and green paper. They achieve the first by spouting a hollow, generic "feel good" message that tip-toes on scripture like a robber in your home. They maintain the second by reminding you of your destination if you falter from THEIR definition of faith. Any true Christian today should be not only disgusted by the wickedness of the world at large... It should abhor the very four walls that have the audacity to call themselves a church in the first place. I instead call it a God rackett. Apostasy has set in like gangrene... Listen to any radio "ministry" you can always get the pastors message for a donation of X... God's word and message are the good news... Free to all who have ears to hear. Do you think when Christ sent out the apostles by 2's that after telling them NOT to take a coat... No money... No staff... That he finished with "and make sure you extort those who listen... You know to maintain your ministry". The fact that those who are proclaimed Athiests or agnostic have such a hard time digesting the truth of the word does not surprise me... The typical "Christian" today is a joke... A person who likes to compare clothing on Sunday. A person so brainwashed by religion they don't even know what they believe. Walking in Jesus is not easy... And defending the faith is even harder. I was saved because God found me... Not because I was pressured to walk forward to a pulpit. I haven't set foot in a "Church" in over 15 years... And you won't find me in one until we all make an account of our lives before God himself.

My two cents:


5. The Modern Problem

(2075.4) 195:5.1 The twentieth century has brought new problems for Christianity and all other religions to solve. The higher a civilization climbs, the more necessitous becomes the duty to “seek first the realities of heaven” in all of man’s efforts to stabilize society and facilitate the solution of its material problems.

(2075.5) 195:5.2 Truth often becomes confusing and even misleading when it is dismembered, segregated, isolated, and too much analyzed. Living truth teaches the truth seeker aright only when it is embraced in wholeness and as a living spiritual reality, not as a fact of material science or an inspiration of intervening art.

(2075.6) 195:5.3 Religion is the revelation to man of his divine and eternal destiny. Religion is a purely personal and spiritual experience and must forever be distinguished from man’s other high forms of thought, such as:

(2075.7) 195:5.4 1. Man’s logical attitude toward the things of material reality.

(2075.8) 195:5.5 2. Man’s aesthetic appreciation of beauty contrasted with ugliness.

(2075.9) 195:5.6 3. Man’s ethical recognition of social obligations and political duty.

(2075.10) 195:5.7 4. Even man’s sense of human morality is not, in and of itself, religious.

(2075.11) 195:5.8 Religion is designed to find those values in the universe which call forth faith, trust, and assurance; religion culminates in worship. Religion discovers for the soul those supreme values which are in contrast with the relative values discovered by the mind. Such superhuman insight can be had only through genuine religious experience.

(2075.12) 195:5.9 A lasting social system without a morality predicated on spiritual realities can no more be maintained than could the solar system without gravity.

(2076.1) 195:5.10 Do not try to satisfy the curiosity or gratify all the latent adventure surging within the soul in one short life in the flesh. Be patient! be not tempted to indulge in a lawless plunge into cheap and sordid adventure. Harness your energies and bridle your passions; be calm while you await the majestic unfolding of an endless career of progressive adventure and thrilling discovery...

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
Infiltrating the churches and taking control is crucial to satan's plan, it's true that almost the whole world will be deceived.

I only ever attended church as a child for a few years. I liked going, liked the Jesus story a lot, and was in the choir but there was a lot of pressure on you to take the altar call (I was about 9) and I wasn't sure what it did for people. I thought I had better because of the pressure and oh well whatever, other children were doing it, so when the preacher made the usual 'is there anyone here who wants to open their heart to Jesus?' request, I (you didn't have to go up to the altar, you could just stay in your seat) started to open my heart (which is kinda like a YES, thing) and I sensed this black monolith, similar to the one in 2001 coming towards my heart and I thought uh, that's not Jesus, a stony black thing, shaped like a tombstone (2001 hadn't been made then) and quickly closed up my heart again. I was shunned by that church the next week, but yeah some of these preachers can use the name Jesus but it may not be Jesus that approaches you, guess he had his fingers crossed or mentally substitutes Lucifer (some occultists do) for Jesus.

Anyway, that's my church story. Finally became one without any church involvement at about 40, because, it's was just becoming so obvious that satan is real and the world is going to hell.

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
Yeah it's sad.

Religion corrupted the very nature of human beings which is to seek spirituality and a relationship with Creator; creating awareness of self which translates into treating others better. A win win. But we live in an artificial, anti human world now for the most part. There are still good people out there though.

I think the message of Jesus was to humble oneself, and get pissed off rarely but at the right time.

Re: Christians... The church is dead.
The Urantia book is a result of one of the Kellogg brothers... It was all supernaturally channeled... It has the allure of truth because of some scientific matters that were not comprehended at the time.. Like plate tectonics. However.. The fact remains that the book was channeled.. It is demonic. Jesus did NOT die by accident... There are not multiple worlds where "Jesus's" are sent... Urantians are some of the most arrogant lost fucks I have ever met.
