Over in the Cafe there is an interesting thread about C.S Lewis and the Narnia books, on that thread I mentioned I hated said books partly due to the Christian moralizing as I hated and feared Christianity.
As predicted I then had a few responses giving their opinions. I have decided to start this thread in the hope we can all have a sensible discussion of our various opinions.
** While I hate and fear Christianity itself I do not hate Christians. I would like to make it clear from the start I admire anybody who has the strength of mind to believe in something entirely without question. I am not trying to have a go at Christian people or members of any other denomination **
It has been my experience that Christians who have total belief tend not to think about things to much, they tend not to ask philosophical questions, where did God come from? Is he a fallible being? Does he really care if we all get drunk on a Saturday night? (Wales is a Methodist Country).
I fear Christianity because there are people who believe in an omnipotent being from whom they can ask anything so they ask him for they handsome guy on the bus to ask them out, they ask him that their partner won’t find out about their affair, they ask for the dying to live. They ask things only for themselves.
My own personal philosophy is that there is a God or Being or Logos, I don’t believe in him and I will not worship him. I Believe you should take and do what you want in this life but you will pay for it, in one way or another.
