"The "I'll pray for you" is honestly the worst to me. It`s really malicious if you think about it."
It is, but it`s the usual mindless maliciousness of religion. They`re not usually deliberately nasty. They`ve replaced thought with faith, so in many cases they genuinely can`t understand how much they`re insulting you.
I`ve never met a person like that who I`ve had any respect for, so it doesn`t really bother me in practice. When someone whose opinion is of no importance to me insults me because they`re too dumb to realise what they`re doing, I don`t really care. They want to talk in their head to their imaginary psycho gang leader, fine. Nothing to do with me.

I cannot comprehend eternity or perfection any more you, but I have faith in the words of scripture...
Yeah i've heard that from pretty much every christian when i bring up issues of heaven like that. It does sound shitty to you and to them. You can`t reconcile the promise of paradise with the evidence from your own holy book that makes it seem kinda crappy. So you shut off your brain and bleat "i have faith" [quote]That[/quote] is what saddens [quote]me[/quote]
Romans 10:9 "That if you confess with your mouth...
This passage simply says that you must profess your love for jesus and that the faith in your heart will validate your words. I know that god wants us to have faith but this says nothing about god wanting us to have faith in him and not knowledge. Why did the ancients get miracles and signs all over the place? Why do [quote]we[/quote] have to have faith when he gave them knowledge? If god loves me so much and wants me to be with him why wouldn't get off his ass and save me? I`ve strayed from the flock and i can`t find my way back without his help. But apparently god is just giving me a big "fuck you" burn, asshole lol. Why is he going to torture me? Because i didn`t choose not to have faith any more than i chose to be strait. That`s just who i am.
