I believe you will ridicule this, but I feel
compelled to send it anyway.
I apologize for those who proclaim the name of Christ
as Lord and Savior, yet send garbage e-mail to you with
hateful words. In checking out your site, I have seen
a bit of the reason why you reject the church. I do
wonder, why you reject Jesus. Your choice, but why,
and please if you do answer do so civilly. If you
believe Jesus to be a myth, so be it, I don't.
I do have one more question, where id you learn that
God sends anyone to hell? The bible doesn't teach
that, the bible teaches that we have a choice, believe
and enter eternal fellowship with God, or reject Him
and enter eternal separation. The choice is yours.
Just as in life, you choose the way you live, if you
have unprotected sex and die of an std, it's your
fault, if you drink and drive and kill someone and
spend time in jail, it's your own fault. So the choice
is up to you. And you have made your choice known in
previous emails,please don't blame your choice on God.

Some of your"listed contradictions" are not
contradictions at all.
To compare God's view of humanity prior to the fall of
man, with His
disappointment of the action of humanity after the fall,
and then claim it a
contradiction. Is wrong. It would be like saying parents
love there kids
as infants and Hate them when they become teenagers. That
Well Graham thank you for your lovely e-mail! It really
made me happy inside to know that after all I am responsible
for my own actions.
Also thank you for speaking for all the christians out
there, whether they are a TRUE Christian or not.
I am sure the TRUE christians would never be hateful to
me. Or send me the garbage mails as you call them.
Let me guess as to the reasoning behind the church/jesus
question, you have a personal relationship with this jesus
I take it?
Not a religion, but a relationship. Please tell me, and
the readers of the Island, what do you do in this relationship
with jesus? Do you all hang out? Do you go to the roller
rink together? Play golf? Drink a few brews?
Chastise the Pharisees? Don't me wrong, I would not ridicule
you, as that would give you the impression of the persecuted
playing into the bible stating these little details. I
would not do that. Although I am an evil atheist, I care.
As for god sending people to hell, if this god of yours
is an omnimax deity, as the christian alludes to,
then this god knows it all. Period. Every action, every
"choice" is known to this god before hand. Kinda
shoots free will to hell.
If we have free will, then we do not have an omniscient
god. Pretty simple. That is how I come to the conclusion
that god sends people to hell. God created everything,
is responsible for everything, and this god chooses to
people to hell for disbelief. Again, pretty easy. As for
you believing jesus was real, this does not mean anything.
You just believe. Nothing more.
This does not prove it was real, and he existed. Plus,
even if he did exist ( and that is not even a 100% sure
thing ) you would need to prove he was as the bible
claimed. But since there is nothing but the bible for
this, it is moot.
I enjoyed the analogies you gave as choices. All of
them bound to the real world, with a FINITE punishment
for FINITE choices.
This shows nothing for the support of your god or reasoning
behind how this god does not send us to a hell.
Yet you have no good reason for the eternal INFINITE punishment
for the FINITE sin of nonbelief. Or do you?
I also notice you presume to know what this god would
do. How do you know these things?
And as for "my" choice and me blaming "god"
who else should we blame? This god is omnimax to hear
the sheep. He knows it all.
Pretty easy to blame this god. He is responsible, he knew
ahead of time I was bound for hell.
Oh wait... it is all a myth....thanks for playing.
