Why church sucks
    #3737213 - 02/05/05 10:02 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

So this guy from the church my parents go to called the house and I answered.. He was like Hello, what is up... I said hey, and he was like " Are you going to church now" and I said no... and he said " well that is not the right choice for your life..And I said, ok.. here is my mother..

hahah, what I said in my head was ,Who the fuck are you to tell me what is right or not!!, and the rant went much further, but I will spare you the detials of my mind :smile:

It seems to me he simply had a concern for you and in his mind he was doing what he thought was right, whether it is or is not. I take no offense to people who try to convert me to their religion. They won't succeed, but I don't care if they try. Now, when people start getting pushy about it and tell me I'm going to hell if I don't get baptized into their church, I will then put them in their place. But I think you can do that without being rude. Should they take offense to it, oh well, maybe then they'll leave me alone.

I do not mind preaching from people who I respect- like my father. It bothered me when I was younger, but I came to respect his opinion and his wisdom. Sometimes he goes overboard and I tell him to lay off, and he does. Then there are those who are self righteous and keep going and going. Ignoring them is the best way to get rid of them. Arguing with them is what they want.

My church was in a school gym. They spoke in another language.

The best part was when we got to eat the bread soaked in wine.

Church had a huge impact on me.

I dunno, one part of me wants to say "Religion is just another form of control", another says "I want to believe there is something out there...."

It's perfectly reasonable to want to believe there is something out there, but if there is something out there, there's no reason for organized religions or guidelines on how to worship. Perhaps you should change the statement to "Organized religion is just another form of control?"

I would have told him my mind and it wouldn't have sounded too friendly but that's just me when it comes to things like that. I hate when people try to push their religion on me especially when it's more like a cult than a religion like Jehova's Witnesses.  :whack:

Christ's gospel, as he taught it, was all about peace, love, happiness, acceptance of "sinners", etc. Those things set people free. There's no judgment by other men. No hypocrisy. No making you feel guilty for what may be perceived as shortcomings. Over time men perverted his teachings in order to gain profit, control, and power. Most organized religion does indeed bind people down. That is because of men.

Dude, I love arguing with people who try to convert me. I once got into an hour-long debate with a Jehovah's Witness.

I'd never be a jehovah's witness. If what I understand is correct, they believe only a certain limited number of people will be accepted into heaven. What a horrible god that would be to say "well, we only have space for this many people. Sorry, the rest of you gotta rot in hell." WTF?

Well, given that belief, it's amazing that they'd want to convert people. I mean, if I thought that only a certain number of people got into heaven, I'd want to reserve a space for myself instead of letting other people in on it.

When the Witnesses come, ask them if they need any angel dust.  :wink: :lol: Supernova, right on man, I think Jesus was a great man, with a great vision....and Christianity has nothing to do with this vision/message, they do the opposite of what they are supposed to do.  :shrug:

Damn right. I grew up in a small town and attended a Southern Baptist church. The town was crawling with busy bodies constantly trying to get in your business. One time my Mom got a call from a family "friend" who was informing on me that she went with some friends to see a movie and sat behind me and some friends who were "foul mouthed" during the movie. But it wasn't me saying anything and the movie was rated "R"!

It really doesn't bother me to talk to Jehovah's witnesses.The way I see it,if they are going to take time out of there day to knock on my door I'll listen.I'm not a religious man I've been to church maybe 3 times in my life and have never been baptized.
Call me a pussy if you want to,but I treat everyone the same until they give me a reason to be harsh.
I don't judge a person by there religion.

Yeah I feel ya, sometimes being polite refusals don't work though......anyone here ever visited by the "moonies"? They're a cult that was around a while back, I'm not sure if they are still around though. Anyway, they came door to door as well, but unlike most Witnesses, they  wouldn't thank you for your time and bid you good day if you don't want to hear their message....oh no, they stuck their feet in your doorway when you try to shut your door... :rolleyes: :mad2:
