I am a Christian and I find that to be quite funny.

A lot of Christians like can't take a joke aimed towards there beliefs but I do not really care? Why should I judge someone for not beleiving I the thing I do?

[Rant] In fact, something that has always bothered me was how Christians pick and choose what to believe in. Sure The Holy Bible says homosexuality is a sin but it also says to be kind to everyone. There are a lot of things from The Bible that we do not follow anymore so why do we condem people for certain things. And remember that little part in The Bible where Jesus Christ died for our sins so we don't have to? What about the paet where it says all sins can be forgiven. People who think another individual will go to hell for one thing are wrong. It says every sin can be forgive. That does not exclude anything. Period.

I personally beleive that if someone is not Christian good for them. Do I agree with them? Maybe not on a religious front. Do I think any less of them? No! A popular term is what would Jesus do. If Jesus was faced with a sinner would he look at them and condem them to hell? Especially when it was only one thing and he has sought forgivness. Humans are flawed, impure, sinning creatures. There is nothing we can do about that, that is our nature. The point of Jesus' sacrifice was sos that we wouldn't have to die because lf that.[/rant]

tl;dr A lot of religious people do not practice what they preach.


RE: 2 pɐǝɹɥʇ ʎʇıunɯɯoɔ - Grungie - 02-10-2014

I think people in general don't tend to practice what they preach.


RE: 2 pɐǝɹɥʇ ʎʇıunɯɯoɔ - Fantasyfanman - 02-10-2014

I try to, as much as I can.

One of my life rules is try not to tell anyone to do something you would not be willing to do yourself.


RE: 2 pɐǝɹɥʇ ʎʇıunɯɯoɔ - Grungie - 02-10-2014

The only sorta hypocritical thing I do is school people on piracy do dispel popular myths regarding it, despite I pirate myself. So I''m really just informing people about what they're doing rather than saying "hey you can't do that". I'm mostly against some of them mentality towards it, like those people who act like they're rebelling against dem evil corporations, despite their real motivation is "I want/like free shit, and I won't get caught doing this", which is pretty much why people pirate in general.

The only other acceptable reasoning I can see towards pirating, is if you live in a country where said product/service is either unnecessarily expensive, or you have difficulty getting in your country. Or something that's really difficult to find in general.

I think I read some kid's version of the bible in like 3rd grade (Catholic School yo, lol), but that's about it.

I think it's because a lot of religious humor could be construed as blasphemy, in which case I think it's perfectly reasonable to react badly. Even then, it kind of sucks to have something important to you demeaned or made fun of, especially something as widely misunderstood or misinterpreted as religion.

I usually have a good sense of humor about things that matter to me. However, I easily get pissed off when I hear people discussing things (usually in a critical matter) that are misconceptions or misunderstandings on a certain subject, not just religion.

Actually, there is the idea of the "unforgivable" sin, that is, to blaspheme against the Holy Spirit. However, what constitutes as the definition of "unforgivable sin" and "blaspheming the Holy Spirit" is up to debate and scrutiny. If I'm not mistaken, the Catholic church's stance on this theological issue is that the sin in question is unrepentance, in which case it's Christian teaching that you are to be punished, mostly because you chose not to repent. It sort of makes sense. There are varying views amongst other branches.

I might just be getting confusing at this point, though.

I also strongly believe that it is possible to be against gay marriage and not be a homophobe (I'm neither, personally).

It's also doctrine that although Jesus did die for all of humanity, individuals need to accept the redemption out of free will. Because of this, one can reject Christ's sacrifice, which is essentially equated to sinning. It's like if you received a gift on your birthday. You may choose to accept the present, or not.

We have a religion and philosophy thread if you're interested Smile

(I cannot stand people who actively don't practice what they preach)

Makes sense. But at the same time, it's kind of irresponsible to let unethical behavior slide because "you'd do that too", at least in my opinion. In other words, it's better to preach without practicing than not to preach at all, but it's infinitely better to practice what you preach.

On the other hand, I do believe it's right to allow freedom of religion in society, and thus freedom (albeit up to a certain degree) of practice.

And that's basically the gist of it.
Are you certain about that baby-popping part being before Adam and Eve deciding to pioneer the surrounding wasteland? I'm pretty certain all else is correct, but I think reproduction was not available before they bit into the sour apple.

Also, I didn't know that Judas was a cat. Cool.

Based on personal experiences, I wouldn't say that is true at all. At least, not going against it. Maybe I don't meet enough preachers.


RE: 2 pɐǝɹɥʇ ʎʇıunɯɯoɔ - JCizzle - 02-10-2014

I'm actually not sure. I'm pretty certain I might have made a few chronological mistakes in my list, so maybe you're right.
