A good first post, Ferre. Well said.
I am personally very jaded by Christianity not necessarily for their theological shortcomings but instead by their arrogance and intellectual fallacy. In every case when I present an idea that is contradictory to scripture, I invariably get a pat (canned) answer as to why I am wrong.
Let me share a few:
Q: Why is it that Christians are the only one going to 'heaven'? Why not Buddhists, Hindus, Pagans, and numerous other religious groups who have left a much smaller death toll in their wake?
A: Because Christ said HE is the way to the father and ONLY through Him do you get to heaven.
Q: Zoroaster said the same thing. Are Zoroastrians going to hell too?
Q: Why? Their prophet/teacher said the same thing as your prophet/teacher.
A: Their prophet/teacher didn't come back from the dead. His tomb is still occupied.
Q: Not according to their beliefs.
A: Then they stole the idea from Christianity. Satan is deceiving modern man with this false religion.
We could go on like this forever and the Christian will still claim to be the open-minded one while never presenting any extra-biblical support for their position. Christians seem to believe they have the key to eternal life and a joyful life on earth. No amount of arguing can undo the brainwashing they have endured for so long.
Why discriminate? A christian is the only person who has gotten in my face and told me I was going to burn in everlasting fire if I didn't believe the way he does. It's pretty crystal to me why Christians bear the brunt of our ire.
Jesus is coming back. And boy, is he PISSED!
