Why I'm a misotheist

By illu minati ~

Recently I de-converted from Christianity. I was attending a "born-again" Christian church called Jesus Is Lord Church. I was part of music team, and the guitarist. I can honestly say that even though I didn't speak-in-tongues(now I call it gibberish) I was a born-again. I had another talent that I was nourishing, it was debating. I read a book besides the Bible, it was "Witnessing to the Cults" or something like that. I was hard-core about the basics of religions, I know all the flaws of all Christian cults such as: Iglesia ni Christo, Jehovah's Witness, Mormonism, and sometimes Catholic Church itself. But one thing I refused to see was the born-again church itself. Next is I studied the atheism and watched debates about them. I am convinced that God is therefore true.

The thing that started my doubt was an other-branch-church-pastor visited us and preached about who gets glorified in heaven, is it the inside-church workers or the ones who "brought" fresh souls to the church? I was hurt from the inside when he said that it's not the great/good guitarist, drummer, singer, and the others who worked hard to make the Sunday service possible is the one who gets an award in heaven but it is the one who "brought" souls to the church. I was a giving my tithes for the reason that even though I don't have the other "talking" talent (if you know what I mean), I can still contribute on other's salvation. Didn't he know that our own local pastor taught that "every thing that you do for Christ is not in vain?" I'm starting to feel something is not right.

Then I reviewed the Christian-vs-Atheist debates namely: Dinesh D'Souza vs Christopher Hitchens, William Lane Craig vs Christopher Hitchens, and others. Now I was truly listening on both sides and became open-minded. Hitchens' points out about "the Problem of Evil" and Craig's "if God does not exist" arguments. At first I was confused the compatibility of those two points. I Googled about "God evil" key words. That's is the time when I found out about misotheism. It's basics was hatred on God/gods. It isn't as popular as atheism but it makes a lot of sense for me than believing that there is no God.

It's not a joke that a person burns in hell forever, tormented day and night because of finite crime.The arguments were about whether God is incompetent on being a god or He is a malevolent, trickster god. These things made a lot sense to me. The atheist argues about the contradictions and errancy of the Bible and they weren't wrong about that. But what about the argument "you can't get something about nothing," it is logical to think that nothing stays nothing forever and something must be existed beyond time in order to create something bound by time.

Moreover Christians sometimes says that God is not a god of confusion, they were wrong. If God is not a god of confusion, why there are Christian denominations even though Jesus Himself prayed to the Father that Christians must unite so that the world will know that He and the Father is One. Their (a Christian denomination) answer is just "they are cult" even though they are use the same version. If you defeat God about righteousness, He argue about how He created and controls the Universe and how pathetic you're abilities and knowledge (Book of Job). Of course Job will submit to this bully God.

The Christians sometimes says that God knows everything about me, is that I'm an "open book" in Him. Ha. If God is all-knowing, then why put the tree of good and evil in the first place KNOWING that Adam and Eve will fall on the snake's deception? Our local pastor taught that "Pride of Life" is the reason why they ate the fruit but she was wrong. It was CURIOSITY that made them eat. It was lack of knowledge. What kind of a father gives his son a loaded pistol, cocked and locked KNOWING that his son may shoot and even kill himself and does nothing, hoping that he will learn something on his mistakes? Is it sane to do get hurt (psychologically, physically, and spiritually) first learn later?

Maybe (for the reason that I'm not sure) Einstein is right when he believed that God is not a personal god, that He didn't reveal Himself to humanity in anyway. But I cannot believe this God. The Christians often say "how can you look at the clear night sky and say there is no God." My answer is this: "how can you look throughout history, from Abraham to this present day mankind's suffering (on war, famine, and terrorism) because of different beliefs, and not say it's God's fault."

It's not a joke that a person burns in hell forever, tormented day and night because of finite crime. My brother (who is a Christian) might answer me that it's not the guilty who says what punishment he must endure but it is the judge. I will say "it is not healthy to 'play who believes and who goes to hell.' Only a sick Person does that." What will happen to those people who never heard in anyway the "good news" and died? The biblical answer is they get toasted. According to Apostle Paul and Craig himself they will be judged on the information they had that time and how they responded to it. All I can say: "how convenient." The people who was born in Iran is more likely be Moslem, who are they going to reflect their spiritual life? It is reasonable to think that children will most be likely to imitate their parents than "unusual" guys.

In conclusion, God is nothing more than a magician, illusionist, and a trickster. Manipulating you to do stupid stuffs, enslaving you to eternal slavery or torment. I'm going to quote about the Joker's famous words: "...schemers are trying to control their little world, and I show them how pathetic they really are...," and "...when the chips are down, these 'civilized' people they'll eat each other..." No wonder people are made with the image of God. God and the devil are both schemers (that is, planning to sabotage and control mankind) I conclude. Just remember, the devil never work without approval from Daddy because God is in control, right?

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

So Just How Dumb Were Jesus’ Disciples? The Resurrection, Part VII.

By Robert Conner ~ T he first mention of Jesus’ resurrection comes from a letter written by Paul of Tarsus. Paul appears to have had no interest whatsoever in the “historical” Jesus: “even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, we know him so no longer.” ( 2 Corinthians 5:16 ) Paul’s surviving letters never once mention any of Jesus’ many exorcisms and healings, the raising of Lazarus, or Jesus’ virgin birth, and barely allude to Jesus’ teaching. For Paul, Jesus only gets interesting after he’s dead, but even here Paul’s attention to detail is sketchy at best. For instance, Paul says Jesus “was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” ( 1 Corinthians 15:4 ), but there are no scriptures that foretell the Jewish Messiah would at long last appear only to die at the hands of Gentiles, much less that the Messiah would then be raised from the dead after three days. After his miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus—an event Paul never mentions in his lette

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


By David Andrew Dugle ~   S ettle down now children, here's the story from the Book of David called The Parable of the Bent Cross. In the land Southeast of Eden –  Eden, Minnesota that is – between two rivers called the Big Miami and the Little Miami, in the name of Saint Gertrude there was once built a church. Here next to it was also built a fine parochial school. The congregation thrived and after a multitude of years, a new, bigger church was erected, well made with clean straight lines and a high steeple topped with a tall, thin cross of gold. The faithful felt proud, but now very low was their money. Their Sunday offerings and school fees did not suffice. Anon, they decided to raise money in an unclean way. One fine summer day the faithful erected tents in the chariot lot between the two buildings. In the tents they set up all manner of games – ring toss, bingo, little mechanical racing horses and roulette wheels – then all who lived in the land between the two rivers we

Morality is not a Good Argument for Christianity

By austinrohm ~ I wrote this article as I was deconverting in my own head: I never talked with anyone about it, but it was a letter I wrote as if I was writing to all the Christians in my life who constantly brought up how morality was the best argument for Christianity. No Christian has read this so far, but it is written from the point of view of a frustrated closeted atheist whose only outlet was organizing his thoughts on the keyboard. A common phrase used with non-Christians is: “Well without God, there isn’t a foundation of morality. If God is not real, then you could go around killing and raping.” There are a few things which must be addressed. 1. Show me objective morality. Define it and show me an example. Different Christians have different moral standards depending on how they interpret the Bible. Often times, they will just find what they believe, then go back into scripture and find a way to validate it. Conversely, many feel a particular action is not

On Living Virtuously

By Webmdave ~  A s a Christian, living virtuously meant living in a manner that pleased God. Pleasing god (or living virtuously) was explained as: Praying for forgiveness for sins  Accepting Christ as Savior  Frequently reading the Bible  Memorizing Bible verses Being baptized (subject to church rules)  Attending church services  Partaking of the Lord’s Supper  Tithing  Resisting temptations to lie, steal, smoke, drink, party, have lustful thoughts, have sex (outside of marriage) masturbate, etc.  Boldly sharing the Gospel of Salvation with unbelievers The list of virtuous values and expectations grew over time. Once the initial foundational values were safely under the belt, “more virtues'' were introduced. Newer introductions included (among others) harsh condemnation of “worldly” music, homosexuality and abortion Eventually the list of values grew ponderous, and these ideals were not just personal for us Christians. These virtues were used to condemn and disrespect fro
