To be Christian or Not to be Christian...

Post by Luinil on Tue Nov 04, 2008 1:16 pm

Well I have been meaning to post a thread and attempt to upkeep it weekly about my church here. It is a great church, likely one of the top five most influential churches in America. Lifechurch.tv. They have a message archive and weekly podcasts (all free) that you can watch or listen to. This is the current series: Practical Atheist. They finally got the first week up on their website. Check it out.

Are YOU a Practical Atheist?

I started watching the video and I have to say all the things that he mentioned that will be around before the world ends have always been there... so the world should have ended ages ago... also i don´t pretend god is in the room all the time... I bet he/she/it has better things to do than constantly check if I´m being a perv... also I´m not a fan of the whole people don´t fear god part... as far as I know the Bible (mostly the Jesus part) god is love and forgiveness... as long as we don´t spent out live raping and murdering and try to obey the rules as good as humanly possible we should not worry about gods anger all the time... those are scare tactics and I believe my god doesn´t do scare tactics... we got free will for a reason... so we can figure things out for ourselves and be good people because we want to... not because we fear hell... but that's just my opinion...

I used to go to a big church, but I got tired of them caring more about strangers/recrutment then mantencing there own people. But thats another story. Anyways one of their ministers I really liked Jake English has a Podcast of his sermons. He's a big history buff and usually uses some historical story (from things like WWII) as an allegory.

Lifechurch is a big church, but is really lots of small churches that gather together in separate towns that all listen to and watch our pastor give the message. There is an internet campus too. From each campus, including online, there are small groups that gather in homes called Lifegroups. They share their troubles, their joys, their lives together. So really, Lifechurch is made of several small churches under one leadership, united in common beliefs.

Really though everyone should check them out.

^^ Riiiight... the bible is full of people screwing around and raping but porn is the problem... telling people condoms are bad and letting deadly STDs spread is ok... but porn is killing people... riiiight... sorry but its my believe that what a man and a woman and a midget and a donkey do in their privacy while being filmed is their own business...

"Pornography is a multi billion-dollar industry that is tearing apart marriages and families everywhere you turn. This addiction is raping the minds of people all around the world…Christians, non-Christians, men, women AND children."

Thats all I read... I don´t have time to watch those thirty minute videos...ok I do have the time but I don´t wanna... if I once again missed the point feel free to correct me...

To make it up here is a comic that should amuse Christians and an anime fans alike Smile

Just slightly missing the point. Slightly. I can't explain as well as that video. Don't watch it if you don't want to, but it is amusing at first.

Eh, I use to attend the churches just for the free field trips ,even though I was Buddhist . I'm what you call "Practical Atheist" now though. Pretty much accepted the fact that i'm going to hell if there is one or if my plan works, i'll get baptized before I die free ticket to heaven Razz

I don't know what to believe =/

I used to attend Churches on Sundays with my parents by force... I didn't like it much... I was only 5 and 6 and I didn't know what everyone was talking about... then My Parents assigned me to A Catholic school for me to attend Every Tuesdays and Saturdays before.. Since My parents are really religious. Then after I have completed Catholic school I had my first communion now... so back then I didn't know what was going on much.. as for now, I don't know what to believe in...

You should choose a more mainstream religion like Voo Doo or Oprahism.

I believe in God. I try to be a good person. Notice that I said try. I don't push my views on anyone and don't go to church so I probably am going to hell, right?

@amp: I hope not, but most people are going to hell it seems... sad to say. I will invite all of you to attend church with me Sunday. It is online and takes about 1 hour. Pick a time and I will chat with you if you want during it. These are the scheduled times for the internet campus:

# Saturday
* 6:30pm CDT
# Sunday
* 10:00am GMT
* 10:00am CDT
* 11:30am CDT
* 1:00pm CDT
# Tuesday
* 12:00pm CDT
* 8:00pm CDT

Let me know and I will try to meet with as many people as want to check it out. ^_^
