It is deeply disturbing to look around and see how many of your Christian friends are no different than Muslim suicide bombers: ready to give their lives for some strange ideology mostly due to peer pressure, rather than a genuine understanding of truth.

Yesterday, this pastor explicitly mentioned that it is ok for a Christian to own an expensive car if he can afford it.
Thanks a lot, I really needed to hear that, because I’d very much rather use the resources God has put under my control, to pleasure myself, while the poor are suffering due to the apathy of rich people like me :D

Thank God for saving me, a guilty, sinful piece of shit that does not deserve salvation.
But I guess I deserve to drive this expensive car, big house, etc., more than that beggar over there deserves to have a full stomach. Why else would God have given me this high salary, if not to spend at least some of it to pleasure myself? :D
Surely God loves me (not so much that beggar), wants me to be rich, and to spend the money I have to pleasure myself! The prosperity (“health and wealth”) gospel taught me this!

HOW THE FUCK DOES A PASTOR MANAGE TO PREACH THESE INCREDIBLY CONTRADICTORY IDEAS, IN THE SAME FUCKING SERMON!?!?!?
“PROSPERITY GOSPEL IS WRONG”
“EXCESSIVE SPENDING IS OKAY AS LONG AS YOU CAN AFFORD IT”

NOT SURE IF I’M FUCKING CRAZY AND OVERREACTING, OR WHETHER MY CHURCH IS REALLY A FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.
AND THEY WONDER WHY PEOPLE ARE LEAVING THE CHURCH

GOD’S JUSTICE INVOLVES INFLICTING MORE PAIN AND SUFFERING THAN WHAT ALREADY EXISTS, BECAUSE SINNERS FUCKING DESERVE IT. BUT SOMEHOW THERE IS A MAGICAL LOOPHOLE IN GOD’S JUSTICE SYSTEM, THAT ALLOWS JESUS TO BE TORTURED INSTEAD.
OF COURSE, ANY SANE PERSON WOULD FIND THIS RIDICULOUS, RIGHT? AMIRITE?
OOPS, MY CHURCH FRIENDS SEEM TO BELIEVE THIS SHIT. APPARENTLY THE BIBLE SAYS SO, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT MY BULLSHIT PASTORS TELL ME THE BIBLE SAYS.

Even Spider-Man (Uncle Ben) understands that with great power comes great responsibility.
Yet somehow, God, the all-powerful one, manages not to be responsible for any of the evil and suffering in the world. Apparently sinners all deserve to fucking rot in hell, and God is perfectly free to arbitrarily choose to save some, while leaving the rest to perish.
I guess this is why I am free to arbitrarily save some poor people, while leaving the rest to perish, as I drive my BMW because I can afford it. Just following God’s example :)
Calvinism / “reformed” theology, at its best.
