Why Should I Feel Guilty?

By Greenworld ~

When Christians are aware of my lack of belief in their god, they feel "shocked" about it. Then they proceed to tell me that if I don't convert to Christianity, I will "burn in hell." Often, they SHOUT this drivel at me, just so I can feel "guilty." Guilty...? What am I guilty of? I didn't rape or murder anyone -- so what would I be "guilty" of in the first place? Oh, that's right: lacking a belief in Yahweh. Are you kidding me? Just for that? Why would such a "loving" god want to send me to a horrible place like "hell" once I am dead? I mean... like I said: I have never committed one blasted crime in all my earthly presence! Therefore, why would Yahweh want to put me in the same league as Ted Bundy or Charles Manson? (Then again, Ted got the chance to convert to this hideous religion before being executed, at the same time many of his fallen victims' "souls" are being roasted by "some red guy with an arrow-pointed tail carrying a silly little trident" in "hell" -- this is Yahweh's TRUE LOVE right there.)

Honestly, I still have no idea what I am "guilty" of; I just couldn't imagine a "just" and "righteous" god punishing humans simply for not believing in him or not being "true Christian enough" to satisfy his twisted, violent ego. I have come to the realization that Yahweh doesn't care for human potential but rather HOW MANY people are SUBMITTING themselves to him. Which is funny because I recall an old argument I had with a Christian and he told me that Islam is all about “submission” while Christianity is only about “following Jesus.” (Actually, there is much more to simply "following Jesus" in the Bible -- many of them that most Christians with half a brain would object to. But I would just be wasting my time picking those verses that get taken out of context through their "interpretation" of how they *think* they actually mean.)

With all that said, again I ask: why should I feel "guilty"? I don't regret a SHRED of "good things" I have done in the name of "kindness." I KNOW I am a "good" and "moral" being; I don't need to prove anyone anything. What gets me is that there is still a whole bunch of irrational people putting the "blame" on ME just because I don't believe in a *certain* god! Therefore, a guy like me who has NEVER beat up anyone nor raped a woman or child is STILL "hell bound." Granted, I do have negative thoughts about others from time to time... but that doesn't mean I am sincere! It just means that I am merely angry at the people I "wished death upon." That's all.

To conclude, I know I am not a humanitarian or someone who works for charity. But I don't have to be just to prove that I am not an "evil" person. Regardless, this writing is about how Christianity likes to brand even the most "down to Earth" types of people as "evil" if they find out that they aren't "true Christians" (most likely because of a different branch/church/Bible/etc.) or pretty much don't share any beliefs in Christianity. And once they brand us as "evil people," they then start telling us of the story of Jesus and how so many people hated him to the point that he got crucified JUST so they can get their victims shedding tears and/or feeling pity for how Jesus was insulted and mocked during his time here on Earth (that is, IF such a thing existed).

Christianity really is nothing but a religion that dwells upon depressive human emotions. For example: Christians will tell you that your mother or father got cancer because "you refused to believe in Jesus but this is a sign of Jesus calling you to come to him." See what I mean? It's ALL about EMOTIONS and NEVER about EVIDENCE. This is why so many Christians like to scream at you for not believing, just like a concerned parent would scream at a pedophile for sexually raping his or her children. But unlike that concerned parent screaming at the pedophile, Christians don't care about opening their minds (because they have a fear of "being lured into the dark side") and instead sugarcoat their nasty god and make you feel like you are "total shit" without him "in your heart."

By David Andrew Dugle ~ O ctober. Halloween. It's time to visit the haunted house I used to live in. When I was five my dad was able to build a big modern house. Moving in before it was complete, my younger brother and I were sleeping in a large unfinished area directly under the living room. It should have been too new to be a haunted house, but now and then I would wake up in the tiny, dark hours and see the blurry image of a face, or at least what I took to be a face, glowing, faintly yellow, high up on the wall near the ceiling. I'm not kidding! Most nights it didn’t appear at all. But when it did show itself, at first I thought it was a ghost and it scared me like nothing else I’d ever seen. But the face never did anything; unmoving, it just stayed in that one spot. Turning on the lights would make it disappear, making my fears difficult to explain, so I never told anyone. My Sunday School teachers had always told me to be good because God was just behind m

The Blame Game or Shit Happens

By Webmdave ~ A relative suffering from Type 1 diabetes was recently hospitalized for an emergency amputation. The physicians hoped to halt the spread of septic gangrene seeping from an incurable foot wound. Naturally, family and friends were very concerned. His wife was especially concerned. She bemoaned, “I just don’t want this (the advanced sepsis and the resultant amputation) to be my fault.” It may be that this couple didn’t fully comprehend the seriousness of the situation. It may be that their choice of treatment was less than ideal. Perhaps their home diabetes maintenance was inconsistent. Some Christians I know might say the culprit was a lack of spiritual faith. Others would credit it all to God’s mysterious will. Surely there is someone or something to blame. Someone to whom to ascribe credit. Isn’t there? A few days after the operation, I was talking to a man who had family members who had suffered similar diabetic experiences. Some of those also suffered ea

Christian TV presenter reads out Star Wars plot as story of salvation

An email prankster tricked the host of a Christian TV show into reading out the plots of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Star Wars in the belief they were stories of personal salvation. The unsuspecting host read out most of the opening rap to The Fresh Prince, a 1990s US sitcom starring Will Smith , apparently unaware that it was not a genuine testimony of faith. The prankster had slightly adapted the lyrics but the references to a misspent youth playing basketball in West Philadelphia would have been instantly familiar to most viewers. The lines read out by the DJ included: "One day a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in my living area. I ended up getting into a fight, which terrified my mother." The presenter on Genesis TV , a British Christian channel, eventually realised that he was being pranked and cut the story short – only to move on to another spoof email based on the plot of the Star Wars films. It began: &quo

Are You an Atheist Success Story?

By Avangelism Project ~ F acts don’t spread. Stories do. It’s how (good) marketing works, it’s how elections (unfortunately) are won and lost, and it’s how (all) religion spreads. Proselytization isn’t accomplished with better arguments. It’s accomplished with better stories and it’s time we atheists catch up. It’s not like atheists don’t love a good story. Head over to the atheist reddit and take a look if you don’t believe me. We’re all over stories painting religion in a bad light. Nothing wrong with that, but we ignore the value of a story or a testimonial when we’re dealing with Christians. We can’t be so proud to argue the semantics of whether atheism is a belief or deconversion is actually proselytization. When we become more interested in defining our terms than in affecting people, we’ve relegated ourselves to irrelevance preferring to be smug in our minority, but semantically correct, nonbelief. Results Determine Reality The thing is when we opt to bury our

Reasons for my disbelief

By Rebekah ~ T here are many layers to the reasons for my disbelief, most of which I haven't even touched on here... When I think of Evangelical Christianity, two concepts come to mind: intense psychological traps, and the danger of glossing over and missing a true appreciation for the one life we know that we have. I am actually agnostic when it comes to a being who set creation in motion and remains separated from us in a different realm. If there is a deistic God, then he/she doesn't particularly care if I believe in them, so I won't force belief and instead I will focus on this one life that I know I have, with the people I can see and feel. But I do have a lot of experience with the ideas of God put forth by Evangelical Christianity, and am confident it isn't true. If it's the case god has indeed created both a physical and a heavenly spiritual realm, then why did God even need to create a physical realm? If the point of its existence is to evolve to pas

Why I left the Canadian Reformed Church

By Chuck Eelhart ~ I was born into a believing family. The denomination is called Canadian Reformed Church . It is a Dutch Calvinistic Christian Church. My parents were Dutch immigrants to Canada in 1951. They had come from two slightly differing factions of the same Reformed faith in the Netherlands . Arriving unmarried in Canada they joined the slightly more conservative of the factions. It was a small group at first. Being far from Holland and strangers in a new country these young families found a strong bonding point in their church. Deutsch: Heidelberger Katechismus, Druck 1563 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) I was born in 1955 the third of eventually 9 children. We lived in a small southern Ontario farming community of Fergus. Being young conservative and industrious the community of immigrants prospered. While they did mix and work in the community almost all of the social bonding was within the church group. Being of the first generation born here we had a foot in two
