Spin: If "little posters" (by little did you mean short or thin?) know about religions, what do big posters know about?

"Because in God making you, your brain has morality at its centre"

Uh...

...huh.

"there will be abusers of people and even murderers (those who sought God's forgiveness of course and who were really sorry, and who lived a new life in Christ) they will be in heaven, but you won't if you live and die an avowed atheist."
"If JS or HS had TRULY repented of their sins in their life times they would get to heaven when they died. This is how wonderful the love and grace of God is!"

It's wonderful that Jimmy Saville and Harold Shipman can get to heaven but an atheist who did nobody any harm and/or helped many can't? I find that a miserable interpretation of the message in the NT. All that preaching about love thine enemy and the good Samaratin thrown away in exchange for "Just believe in Jesus and it doesn't matter if you abuse children and murder people". Just awful.

Maybe there should be a new forum: "What is the "Christian" basis of morality?", is it really nothing more than one of 2 alternatives:

1. Don't do good things for others or avoid harm to others because you believe it's the right thing to do; just do it because you'll be rewarded in the afterlife.
OR
2. It doesn't matter what you do in your life, as long as you believe in Jesus before you die you'll be rewarded in the afterlife.

Neither of those sounds like morality to me; they are amorality.

They are a naughty child's view of the world;
1. is behaving because you're scared of getting caught.
2. is do whatever you like and say "sorry" if you get caught
I would find it hard to respect a child who lived their life that way, but an adult? Despicable.

What happens to the children, now adults, who were abused/murdered by JS/HS? If they are believers, they end up in heaven with their tyrants. If un-believers, burning in the lakes of hell. True Christian justice. Mercifully, for everyone, it's all rubbish.

TJW,

"Because in God making you, your brain has morality at its centre. "

Is this a typo? Should it be 'mortality'?

Spin: You suggest the amusing (according to you) response "But Religion has nothing to do with Knowledge".

I would suggest the more accurate, and possibly amusing, phrase "But Spin has nothing to do with Knowledge".

Just repeating what has been posted by Christians in here, please give me you take on Christian morality if you disagree...

Spin: Ha ha, your post is so full of unintended irony and errors that it actually IS amusing!

Unfortunately for you, you do not get to prohibit me, or anyone else, from replying to your posts if we so choose. But for the sake of the other posters on this thread (including Pendragon) who actually have something to say, I will not encourage you to clutter this thread further with your tosh.

Over and out.

You're like The Rock talking in 3rd person like that ;)

"Organised religion has nothing to do with forgiveness. " Deary me, that is twice today that I have agreed with you. I think I should lie down in a darkened room with a damp flannel over my face until it passes!!

Uless of course it was the sale of 'indulgences' . Money has always been important to the Catholic church.

What is the point of forgiving a psychopath who is simply going to repeat the behaviour. Forgiveness without repentance is an exercise in futility.
