Wait, I thought once you accept Jesus into your heart you were saved forever. Now you're saying that reading a book can undo all of that?
If you can only have faith by remaining ignorant then that's not faith. That's ignorance.

Is faith that fragile? One would think that the Almighty could come up with better arguments, or at least get better P.R.

HE HAS JUST STATED HE INTENDS TO BECOME A PASTOR. I THINK HE KNOWS WHO JESUS IS, YOU RETARDED FUCK.

More evidence for mandatory reading comprehension for homeschoolers.

His faith has been derailed because even though he wants to become a pastor, he read one solitary book by Richard Dawkins and didn't lose his faith? I... what??
10/27/2009 4:21:30 PM
Somehow your faith has been derailed, very badly. Do you go to a liberal college? Liberal Professors? You are only twenty, and messing up you faith is a serious thing.
No... pretty much just ventured into the real world.

Please, I bet this poster couldn't read the Berenstain Bears without having an aneurysm.

> The Holy Spirit did reveal Dawkins to me, <
Is the HS the same as The Ghost? You don't hear much about that guy these days - it's all God&Jesus doing it all. Reminds me of the Three Stooges, when it was Larry, Moe and Curly they were a great trio, then Curly died and they had to get a replacement, another Joe. But that guy was just background filler so they wouldn't have to change the name, nobody that I know ever watched them to catch that guy's act.
The holy ghost? Oh, yeah, HG, he's with G&J. I think he's their accountant or something, a silent partner, maybe, he's not doing the earthquakes or lightning anymore, got too much paperwork to do - leaves the smiting and heavy stuff for the big boys.

This guy panics because somebody else read Dawkins?
10/27/2009 5:18:32 PM
Maybe, just maybe, Christ wants you to fail to yield or make an illegal lane change. Think about it.
10/27/2009 5:31:05 PM
"The Holy Spirit did reveal Dawkins and you to me."
The Holy Spirit is a psychic phone line now?

once again. if a few words are more powerful than a life time of brain washing then maybe you should reconsider what team your on.

lightshineon appears to be suffering from Rapid Delusion Disproving Disorder.
Terrible condition among fundies. They build up their own little dysfunctional world around themselves, and then something comes along that brings it all crashing down.
Symptoms include mealy-mouth, failing logic forever, and (in real life) cowardice.
There's no cure, I'm afraid, except for acknowledging the delusion and abandoning it. Otherwise something else will come along and trigger the symptoms again.
My heart goes out to him.

You know, for someone who's made it their mission to convert people via the internet, the writing skills are pretty atrocious.
10/27/2009 6:20:29 PM
"Maybe, just maybe, Christ wants you to do a U-Turn."
And maybe LightShineOn is the one who will cause you to do that spiritual U-turn--thus driving you away from Christianity forever.

In front of these walls of text, I hear something like the long, long, high-pitched, mumbled ramblings of a small girl on the floor, play-acting with her dolls and ponies.

He plans to be a pastor, and it seems his faith is strong enough he can learn and read about others' beliefs without worrying about his faith wavering.

It's so easy for them to ramble.
10/27/2009 8:19:05 PM
That poor future pastor has the patience of a saint after that. I read the rest of the thread, lightshineon went on for the rest of the thread about their apparent vision, which is sadder still since EVERYONE believed them.
10/27/2009 9:05:08 PM
I love that lightshineon is afraid of reading Dawkins. The insistence that "oh I just don't want to" cinches it beautifully.

So, knowing your enemy is sinful?
10/28/2009 1:11:07 AM
You realize, of course, this Trinity thing was mandated by the Catholic Church and is not covered or discussed in your fantasy book. It also is literally against the first commandment, you heretic.
10/28/2009 1:15:28 AM
I read through much of that thread, and although it is sad on an incalculable number of levels, there is one positive note: the guy who plans to become a pastor.
"As a Bible-believing Christian, I do not think homosexuality is sinful."
"Water is made up of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. This is a fact. I don't need a Bible verse to tell me that."
"My interpretation of Scripture is one that an increasingly large number of Christians are discovering (just as, in light of the findings of science, an increasing number of Christians are discovering a fitting interpretation for Genesis)."
"You probably also remember a time when blacks were second-class citizens. The thought of homosexuals being discriminated against sickens me. I'm glad my country has come to an enlightened stance on this matter, and the thought of its continued improvement warms my heart."
"Just a heads up though, for the sake of the children, I would make an immediate phone call to child protective services if I ever met a person who babysits other children and gets all of his or her beliefs only from Scripture."
And that's just the first third of the thread. I'm genuinely impressed.

What a sanctimonious twat.
