Think about it before you answer. I am not looking for a bunch of “your an idiot” or “your wrong, but I cant explain why” … if I wanted to be flamed like that I would have posted this question on the www.gospel.com message boards. What I am looking for is a bit of logical reasoning from people who agree with me or disagree with me and can explain why.
The way I see it: Jesus is born, insert events here, “I am the son of god!” insert events here, believe in god or go to hell. This is my admittedly simple-minded view of what happened. Now, when I think about it, that sounds like a threatening decree… believe in god or go to hell? Isnt that like saying, “free our leader into our custody or we’ll detonate a nuke in one of your biggest cities” a bit of a stretch, and a bad analogy at least, but surely you see where I am going with this?
And, if there is a god, and this is his idea of how the world should work (that is, live your life, choose christianity or go to hell), isnt it a bit… I dont know… sick? Think about it… Create humans, give them the freedom to think, to reason, to choose… but then, give them the choice of religions, with no concrete proof of any being right, then send them to hell if they choose incorrectly. Seems more random to me than anything else. Your ultimate destiny determined by where you are born, who you are raised by, how you are taught.
But, if this is how god wanted things to work, maybe there is a reason beyond my comprehension. I dont question god anymore, he ignores me, thats why I am questioning you.
But now I am getting off topic… lets not start any holy wars. Not on this post, there are plenty of posts on this board for that. Back to the question: Jesus = terrorist? Thoughts?
I hope I havent offended anyone with this. If you dont like what I have to say, and you really have nothing to contribute, please, please ignore it… like I said, I dont want to be flamed. Oh, and one more thing, I dont really care if I mispelled that, or misused that word, or whatever… English isnt my first language, and anything like that is really irrelevant - you know what I am asking, if you feel the need to correct me on anything, please let it be in my way of thinking, and not in my expression of my thoughts.
