Many people don't want Christianity to be true, because then they'd be held accountable for their sins.
If God is real they'll forgive everyone eventually. If not, there's no point.
At the end, if they were real, even Satan would be forgiven and made whole. Because if not, What's the point.
But really, none of it matters. Other things matter.
Accountable to a most pathetic excuse for a neurotic, psychopatic, narcissistic tyrant. As a finite mortal, with a finite account of your own evil, you could not possibly ever even get close to that particular Cththulu. Any sapient with a slightest bit of a spine and moral convictions, would spit at the very idea of worshipping such a degenerate, brutal shithead.
You little worm, I fear no accountability, for in my faith, you are always accountable directly to the victims of your transgressions, not some “make it go away lawyer” in the skies. In my faith we clearly state, that to erase the guilt of your transgressions, you have to actively work with the folks affected to redeem your actions and words. Forgivness is not bestowed nor given, it is only true when directly earned.
Wish you could ever learn that truth.
I will admit, I wouldn’t like Christianity, or at least the more conservative interpretations of it, to be true, because I’m guessing I’d be going to Hell then. Still, though, that isn’t the reason I don’t believe in Christianity….which I assume is what he’s implying, that people don’t believe in it because they don’t want it to be true. I dunno, I always try to not let whether I WANT something to be true or not influence if I actually believe in it. LOL, in my experience, that doesn’t seem to have made a whole lot of difference one way or the other.
“Many people don't want Norse Mythology to be true, because then they'd be held accountable for their dishonor and cowardice.”
See how inane that sounds? Because that’s exactly how you sound like to non-christians.
On a side note, I’m an atheist, yes, but I’ll admit that part of me does hope there is something of an (just) afterlife/afterlives. Even if only for the fact that in said “Hell”, true assholes could be confronted with their behavior and be forced to acknowledge it and better themselves before being allowed to move on peacefully.
If you ask me, the ideal afterlives should be like this: going to the equivalent of heaven is the default. If your metaphorical "sins” outweigh your virtues, then you’ll first go to the equivalent of hell where you’ll stay until you fully understand how “sinful” you’ve been and genuinely wish to repent. After that, you’ll be allowed into “heaven” until you get tired of it and then it’s just “oblivion” should you choose so.
“Many people don't want Christianity to be true,”
I didn’t want Trump to be president, but i had to accept the evidence that he was.
I didn’t want my Dad to be dead, but there was a lot of corroboration to the claim.
I didn’t want the roof project to be $14K, but it’s hard to argue the bill.
If there was a decent body of evidence that your religion was THE one that had it figured out, then my desires wouldn’t matter that much, would they?
Mark 12:17. Also, Romans 13:1-7.
I pay my taxes. Your dad
didn’t. He did a ten-stretch in the can, where his can got stretched, thus a felony rap. Yours truly without so much as spitting on the pavement on my record that’s more spotless than even your ’God’s soul (PROTIP: Hosea 13:16).
You do the maths, Eric.
I think that would pose a problem for Dr. Dino. Persecuted is one thing, but physically unmanly enough to ward off a sodomite? That’s admitting to weakness on his part. Not on-brand.
This guy wins all his debates, all his fights, and almost all of his court battles becasue God is on his lying side.
And his target demographic would just assume a ‘real man’ would punch the sodomite and be done with him.
I too can sometimes still fantasize about a possible afterlife or post-death existential state of sorts. For me it's not tied to judgment though, more a hope for higher bliss and access to knowledge and explore places difficult for humans to access, meet/see lost (alive or dead) loved ones. But at the same time I realize how it's human, reminding me of how for that same reason, fantasized paradises often touch basic needs, or are sometimes viewed as not being much different than this one, like with forests and archetypal animals... Just like humans imagine anthropocentric, anthropomorphic deities...
