Yes. It did save you from yourself. Fundamentalism hates above all the individual consciousness and seeks to destroy it whenever it can. Nothing is more painful and confusing then the daily messiness and connection to mundane existence.

Sorry, nope. My conversion saved me from nothing except myself, damnation and ignorance. If you think believers have no fears than you utterly do not understand the religious mind you seem to think you have completely psychoanalysed. I have more fears, and deeper ones, than I ever did before. I don't turn to the Bible for the response to every situation or for pre-programmed thoughts, I turn to it be be closer with He who inspired it and to read of the man who died for us. You either can or will not see that, so you smugly assume you've got it all figured out. Truth is not deterred by doubt.

On a side note, it's bed time. God bless.

Bible Babble.

Your conversion experience saved you from ambiguity, from fear of the unknown, fear of disorder. Fear of Death. Now you have an infallible manual to tell you what to do, to comfort you, to divide the world into black and white, good and bad, saved and unsaved. There can be no middle ground b/c there is no middle ground. You need never to think for yourself ever again, which is good as introspection is painful. And whenever creeping doubt comes back (as it inevitably does) there is always the book you can use to kill those thoughts.

You realize of course that if the whole thing's a sham then we're not missing out on a damn thing, right?

(cont.) Human beings, be they Christian, atheist or otherwise, are stubborn by nature. We might like the idea of this other life, but the actuality of it is too much for us to handle. Even we Christians are apprehensive about it. We don't at all like the idea of giving up our worldly goals and ambitions for it. We want Christ to take us in, but only certain parts. We want the godliness but we want to keep some of our human selves too. But it doesn't work like that; it's all or nothing. When you refuse the idea, when you opt to spend your life satisfying your needs and your goals, even if they are unselfish and honourable, and when you deny the offer itself, you rob yourself of unspeakable treasures, you stop yourself from ever growing to your full and intended potential, and you are enslaved to your desires, and to yourself.

(cont.) The gift that God offers us all, which is possible through the sacrifice of Christ, is the ability to turn ourselves from these shells of souls we are now, made, to what we are meant to be, full, complete, and begotten. You can start in this life, but it will never, due to our human nature, be completed until the next. When you do not acknowledge the presence of God and therefore the availability of this gift, you rob yourself of the most precious thing we could ever hope for. When you spend your time satisfying human desires, no matter how honourable they are, you can not see this thing that is offered, that can give more than any human desire fulfilled ever could. Personal gain, human love, fulfilling your goals; all of those seem great if you think this is the only life, but when put next to the real gift of God, they become infinitely obscure, even obstacles.

And finally...

""Atheists are slaves to themselves"

So it's bad to own yourself, rather than letting others own you"

An inherent aspect of slavery is that the slave is unwilling. When a Christian gives himself to God, not the church but God, he does so of his own free will. Therefore he is not a slave to God, but a willing servant. The "it's better to reign in Hell than serve in Heaven" argument assumes that when we die, we remain the same way we are when we are alive, we just go to a new place. That's not how it works, however. When you give yourself to God, you change, from the inside. You become "like Christ", as the Bible puts it. The Bible says that God "made" us, but he "begot" Jesus. You beget things like you, and make things different from you. A man begets a child, but makes a house. A bird begets an egg, which becomes a bird, but makes a nest. Jesus is like God, and begotten, we are unlike God, and made. (cont.

My post detailed symptoms of a specific mental attitude, menticide or the intense desire to kill off the questioning/reasoning mind.
Fundamentalism claims to have all the answers, so there should be no need for objective thought...period.
The book has spoken,and is quite clear on what you should think, what you should say, and what you should do.
Obeying mindless rules has taken the place of compassion for and identity with your fellow man. Any religion that takes away the mental autonomy of an individual, or that sanctifies hate ceases to be spiritual at all. It is totalitarianism masquerading as piety. That was my point.

"But a criminal that's Christian is definitely going to be hated more than an atheist criminal."

Agreed. Hypocrisy is disgusting.

"Psychological traits of Fundamentalism:
Basic distrust of human beings; certainty that "uncontrolled" human beings will be bad and vicious.
Distrust of their own judgment, or any other human being's judgment.
Ethical development at the reward and punishment stage;morality must be defined and enforced by an external authority."

Completely wrong. There is nothing in religion dictating that you believe people behave a certain way. Believing that all people are bad or all are good is a personal opinion. Some believers think people are generally good, some hold the opposite view. Christianity says absolutely nothing about non-believers, or "uncontrolled", being bad or vicious. In fact it goes the other way, saying that every single person is created by God, and has some of His pure goodness inside of him, it just needs to be revived to shine through.

"Well, people should stop assuming falsities then. It's not my fault you don't understand me. If you don't make any assumptions, you know you're not wrong."

The only thing we falsely assumed was that you knew the basics of grammar.

"God is unnecessary. If we accept that the universe was started from the big bang, we then ask "what came before?" many people say "God". But, then, the only logical thing to ask is "what came before that?" this is where religions say "God has always been." Well, why not just save a step and say that the universe has always been and is slowly evolving?"

Everything in existence is unnecessary. That doesn't mean it's not there. And we can't "save a step" because there is a God. Yes, in that respect it would be simpler to say there wasn't. Religion is complicated because it is true. It's easy to be simplistic when you don't have to bother with facts.

"There is nothing wrong with having a religion that one believes in. It is the small percentage of radicals that get carried away that give any religion a bad name, and this is true for EVERY religion. I am agnostic myself, but I enjoy studying religions, all religions. I have found merit and some great values and views in every religion that everyone can take away and apply to their eveyday lives."

I believe that is because all the major religions and beliefs stem from the same basic truths.

"I totally agree, but olny for those who are frigtened by their insignificance in the universe that they need to belive in fairy tales."

Actually, I am significantly more in awe of/intimidated by my insignificance now that I know there is a God than when I thought this life was all there was.

"Frankly I think atheists respect human life more than theists because they understand that that is all that exists"

We regard life as the ultimate holy gift, a blessing beyond all others. You regard it as a freak accident.

"@raikun12 yes religion may just be a massive faggo_t but it is the only thing telling people to do good other than laws and so i say it stays. and no religion=no america and then the world is fu_cked since america is the worlds backbone. maybe a dash of israel too."

There is a lot more initiative to be moral and just than religion. It's arguments like that that make us look bad.

"just look at the luxury that the pope surrounds himself with while nations of children go hungry. religion is hypocrisy. melt down that staff and crown and golden throne. murder, rape, torture all in the name of god, that is what organized religion is."

The pope is not religion. The Catholic Church is not religion. People will take advantage of any power that is available, religion is no exception.

okay, two things:
1. The first guy's teeth scared me.
2. The second guy looked like a cross between Eddie Munster and Shemp Howard from the three stooges.
Actually, three things- I think these dudesare gay.

Raccoon, that isn't what I meant either. I meant that someone being Christian gives me more incentive to hate that person. If someone always obeys laws, is very friendly, doesn't discriminate, etc., and just happens to be Christian, I won't hate that person. But a criminal that's Christian is definitely going to be hated more than an atheist criminal.
