Evangelism
    #2263941 - 01/22/04 10:26 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Is this the ultimate ego trip?

How many of these people have actually touched the "Ground of Being"? Can they now perform miracles? Are there lives a shining example of the divine? Have they dropped ALL judgement?

Or have they merely read some scriptures and convinced themselves that they have superior knowledge than you?

Heal my back my evangelical brother or sister and I will become a convert. Demonstrate the new life that you have found and I will listen. Parrot a line from a book and I will turn my away from you.

I miss Jimmy Swaggert his crying always offered tempory releif from the troubles of the day.

Is this the ultimate ego trip?

I think Swaggerts was, but he was so good at wailing it brought a tear to my eye.

I think "Swaggart" would be a good band name.

"Praise the lord!!! Can I get an Amen? Praise the Lord. Lordy lordy lord"

hey, i should scan this  advertisement I got for this church in our area. Yes, you got it. Church has now gone to junk mail. My mom was going on about it for like 15 minutes... I dont blame her one bit :wink: .

There is this picture of leave it to beaver, and how the new world is geared for new kids, and how they should come and hang out and chill with god while playing video games and learning about the bible. Its everyones favorite family fun! 

:noway:  o well.

I like the ones that tell you that you are going to hell for the things you do. 

I like the ones that go around thumping the bible and then say and do things that are not "Christian". 

One of my "Christian" sisters told one of my other "going to hell" sisters to fuck off and die.  LOL!!! 

Then, a few minutes later, the Christian called the sinner back and said, "I don't want you to die, but you can fuck off!"  LOL!!!

She had sent me an email earlier that day talking about what a good Christian she was...

:grin:

Ever heard of Fred Phelps.  He preaches all over the country, but he's from a town that is really close to my hometown.  He spreads very loving messages like


"GOD hates fags!" :lol:

Yea, I've seen them on TV many times. There is this one guy in particular - kinda looks like Paul Riser - who really gets on my nerves.

You know the whole scenario; someone is brought up on stage, complaining of Chronic backpain, blindness, cancer, etc, then this guy touches them on the forehead, supposedly transfering this divine healing energy, and the person falls into the arms of someone waiting to catch them. " Ohhh, the lord has healed me!" ,they'll
proclaim.


Then later he's like: "if you'd like to invite the Lord into your life, buy my book for $29.95 plus S&H."


:smirk:

My favourite is Peter Popoff. Has anyone seen this fuck? He's got a show on super late night and in between "healing" sessions they advertise "holy water" from somewhere in Russia that supposedly cured people who got radiation poisoning fronm Chernobyl. It comes in a little plastic packet and they are charging like $4 for about a tablespoon full. Capitalising on what's most likely a sprinkle of tap water, in the name of God. Isn't that just beautiful? :rolleyes:

Of course he also does faith healing, he screams at the devil to get out of them and for the light of God to enter them and heal them, then he pushes them over. Oh and of course he "knows" what thier affliction is because God (or his wife) tells him (possibly over a small earpiece, reading from cards everyone fills in at the door.) It's such a transparent scam and yet thousands of people fall for it. It's incredibly sad.

"My favourite is Peter Popoff. Has anyone seen this fuck?"

YES! That's the guy I'm thinking of. He's got black hair and sometimes is seen talking with his wife?

Yea, he definitely does not seem like a holy religious teacher.
More of a slimy insurance salesman.

The cable here in Atlanta carries like 4 or 5 christian networks. Since I don't get comedy central, these are a great substitute.

The other day I got pissed though; this guy (Pat Roberts?) was on there begging for money and saying how you will recieve more of Gods love the more money you send, and quoting biblical verses that matched with his interpretation of "Gods message." So dismayed was I at this blatant disregard for the poor bastards that actually believe this bullshit, I called up the 1800 number and told off the old country lady that answered the phone. She quoted more bible verses and promptly hung up on me. :smile2:

Never had a skeptic interrupt my dinner and come knocking on my door with a pamphlet nor accost me at the airport...

Typical strawman and fallacy of the excluded middle.

Is it really? Doesn't Jesus speak of despising the luke warm (the exluded middle)? Are we not with him or against him?
