christian scare tactics
i just watched a video made roughly late 80´s early 90´s (could tell by the lovely synth electro funk background music)

anyway , this enlightening video was going on about the end of days and how we are living in that time now

all the famine , the greed , the barcodes on food? and the wars all pointed to the prophecies of us being doomed in the year 2000 and jesus comming to save the nice god fearing creatures of this earth.

it shocked me totally , it basically said that god will anihilate everyone who uses credit cards or have the microchip implants etc etc

real scare tactics -

if i was without any freethinking part of my body myself - i would have shit one and ran to church to get bathed in holy water and blessed my the pope

anyway - its now about 5 years past this date , i wonder when the next christian propagander will start to convert the next batch of poor humans

- sorry if you are religious but that "jesus promo" film was a distgusting and shamefull scare tactic movie to get more people over to your way of thinking. it really opened my eyes to what lengths the church go to to get you converted


sickening

end

oh and the movie is on suprnova named countdown to armaggedon

-- on a side note - it was really funny watching the ending and god "beaming up christians" really nice star trek effects :P

Re: christian scare tactics
I am in a contrary mood.

Do you think that an ´80´s movie that I haven´t seen explains every person in the world that believes in a god, that you call Christian? hence they are all nuts or wrong or both?

I must have taken a stupider pill today.

WHY ARE YOU SO OBSESSED WITH SOMETHING YOU DON´T BELIEVE IN?

Re: christian scare tactics
I think everyone who uses fear as a means of ANYTHING, is wrong! Fear only serves one master. Fear is not what is required to Understand the Secrets of the Universe. I agree, Disgusting.

In fact, it is the Lack of Fear which opens the doors to True Reality.

Turn to God or die?

I have never heard that term other from someone who has an axe to grind.

We all are going to die, my friend.

Let me just ask you this; Does the Person who truly is going to ´Heaven´, or going to be ´saved´, or going to the ´green pastures´, really needs to think about the Opposite direction?

...I don´t understand its power to scare or frighten...

Why wouldn´t it be like being worried the Beagle Boys are going to brake into your money vault?

See..These tactics don´t work on the strong minded individual. Him/She who understands what fear is, would go through the aforementioned simply to prove He/She has no fear at all. What an Oxymoron!

Those Mormon commercials kinda creep me out. Talk about your beautiful exterior and contents full of worms and bones.

Re: christian scare tactics
I know of two instances where funerals were being held and the preacher in one and the priest in the other said outright to the assembled that the deceased was burning in hell right now....and you know what happened? The Baptist congregation dragged the preacher from the pulpit and beat him up outside the church. The priest was sued by the family.

So my question is this. WHY were the clergy men acted against? If that is what the religion teaches and the deceased clearly fit the criteria for burning in hell, why was it bad to say it? Anybody ever go to a funeral where the family DIDN´T believe the deceased was in heaven, or a better place, or was "called home"?

Because Pioneer Queen, there is a time and place for everything. I bet if someone said that about your loved one who had passed you´d most likely do the same thing.

The dead are dead.

Funerals are for the living.

Some resist having consequences pointed out...they desire blind assurance.

Speaking of funerals. It is usually said by the person who is going to receive ONE, that they don´t Want ONE. I wonder why that is?

Unless those preachers knows God personally, they don´t have a clue where those people ended up. Only God can judge.

Re: christian scare tactics
No actually I wouldn´t behave like that at all. Mostly because I am an intellectually honest person who can see the fact that if you do such and such and the religion calls that a sin, then by the teachings, you´re in hell, oh well hate it, did it to yourself.

And the other reason I wouldn´t act like that is because I don´t hold those teachings as true. There is no hell or heaven in that sense to be in.

And I am grown up enough to walk out rather than behave like a child.
