christianity = fear of hell. in every case. in every convert. in every follower...
when you realize what god has done for you, you will see how much he loves you
this is the big argument of christianity.
its a dark, bleak statement.
lets break it down
does this have a gloomy overtone... adreadful overtone?
yes it does
what is god doing, save from hell? yes. thats huge. but it was his idea in the firstplace. I agree that it is immense that people get saved from eternal torment. IT is insane. IT is the only way out.... but thats a horrible thing in the firstplace. humans arent that bad. no one should have that. its too dreadful. its too terrible. its too screwed up. and thats why it seems so good. tyhats the whole thing. hell scares the living crap out of people and jesus offers relief. the imagination puts so much dread and terror into hell that by the time the m ind is scared enough of hell, jesus is bound to make it feel better. the realization that christ saves from hell is awful. its absolutely awful, its not even sickening. its on another level. horrific, dreadful, gloomy, desolate. soooo desolate. soo dark and hopeless.
are you telling me this isnt a fear based religion?
this god isnt using love, hes using fear. hes convincing people they are all going to hell and he is the only way out. thats cold man, hardcore, and oh so cold, real effing low. screw him
talk to any chrisitian and you will see someone who is relieved that they dont go to hell.
is saving from hell good? yes.
is creating people and letting them live in a world where you find them all worthy of hell and you fully intend and carry out the promise of sending them there but offer them a way out knowing that many will go to hell anyway good?
end of story
want to know what that is.
passive agressive. in a nutshell. look it up.
imagine I visit my friend who is an animal enthusiast who raises animals. lets say while he is out working I kill one of his animals and cook it for him for dinner
is cooking him dinner good? yes
is killing one of his animals and using it to cook him dinner good?
no passive aggressive
