Have Fun Burning in Hell, Gandhi by AmericanDreaming Have Fun Burning in Hell, Gandhi by AmericanDreaming
The single most important commandment in Judaism and Christianity is the belief in the one god Yahweh (and in Jesus as his son, for Christians), and to have no other gods. Denying the Holy Spirit (aka not believing in Yahweh) is said to be the one unforgivable sin in Christianity.

So according to Christianity, Mohandas Gandhi is currently being burned and tortured in hell, where he will remain for all of eternity, but if a genocidal tyrant has a deathbed conversion and accepts Jesus into his heart, they go to heaven.

It so happens that there is no good reason or evidence to justify belief in god or religion, souls or the afterlife. But even if it were true, could you really bring yourself to worship such an irrationally evil celestial dictator? If you could, it would be out of fear and terror, not love and respect.

One thing I hate about Christianity is that simple rule that states if you don't believe in God, you go to hell.
Basically that's telling me that someone could be a generous, loving, humble ((insert a bunch of adjectives describing a good person)) person, yet they would burn in hell for eternity and beyond just for not believing in an entity that could be, for all we know, FAKE.
I mean no disrespect to Christians, because God, the bible, The Holy Spirit and such is what they chose to believe in, but some of the rules that they have... they're just so... vile.

I agree whole heartedly. This is essentially thought crime. It's like Orwell's "1984," except Big Brother is all powerful and all knowing, and the subjugation doesn't stop at death. I'm glad that there's no evidence to support this notion, because it is certainly vile and loathsome.

Exactly.
It especially surprises me how many Christians say that their God loves all, regardless of what makes us different, yet this 'loving' being feels the need to banish good people just because of the lack of faith.
I wonder when Christians will actually open their eyes and realize what some of the verses are actually telling them.

If only the Christian God was love, the world would be better off.

For some Christians, actually reading their Bible is like a meat-eater visiting a slaughterhouse. They want to partake in a small, pleasant sliver of the experience, but they don't want the whole thing, because seeing the full picture may just change their minds. Just because they eat the burger doesn't mean they want to meet the cow, and the separation and ignorance allows them to maintain that safe distance which doesn't threaten their beliefs. That's my take, anyway.

Yeah, I see your point.
It makes sense, but if I were to worship a religion, I would want to know the whole thing, not just take whatever sounds good to me and follow that. Then again, a lot of people seem to just want to read a few verses/sentences instead of the whole book, and if they're going to do that, they might as well just edit out all the parts that they seemingly can't handle.

I feel the exact same way :nod:. Thomas Jefferson actually did what you say with the New Testament, it's called the "Jefferson Bible." He kept the good morals, and ditched the bad as well as everything supernatural. You won't be surprised that his edited version is drastically shorter than the original. I've read it, and the world would be a better place if Christians lived by it.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jefferso…

People who possess intellectual curiosity and a thirst for knowledge and understanding will tend to find a way out of religion, but you have to understand most people don't possess these qualities. They simply don't care about abstract truths, they only care about their simple littles lives and what will allow them to live them easier.

Well, Gandhi did perform sexual experiments with his great nieces, so I believe that Gandhi is down there smoldering away, regretting his crimes against the British Empire.

Well, I fucked your mother, so does that mean she or I'll be going to Hell? Oh, wait... I'm a man, so only she will. I love the Bible, it treats men like kings and women like shit, no! even less than shit <3

If your tiny brain can comprehend such a thing, I was not actually talking about the bible, or religion. I don't know if it's possible for you to think about multiple things at once, but I wasnt talking about the bible or how it deals with women. But I know that no atheist would ever dream of being anti-woman, right?

136 in IQ = tiny brain? okay... I'll play along, though I don't really like children ^^
Gandhi was very religious though... and what crimes are you talking about? the British Empire was an empire based on greed, bigotry, racism, cruelty, violence, etc. you're a blind and brainwashed little child.

TJ isn't anti-women... are you stupid? wait! you don't need to reply to that, we already know that you are :I anyway, maybe you should stop listening to all the bullshit you hear from others and go check it yourself? dimwit.
