The Stick and the Carrot

by juju2112

I saw this sign this morning. Don’t you just love it when you’re threatened on your morning drive to work? I’ve actually reviewed one of the sermons from this church before. I should do another one. They seem like fun people.

Let’s recap the lessons of this message, shall we?

  • I’m a bad person. You’re a bad person, too.
  • Believe what I believe, or you’ll be burned alive.
  • God created hell and the rules that cause you to go there. But you send yourself there by breaking the rules.
  • A god who allows torture is perfectly good.
  • We should worship the god that set up a scenario where people are tortured.
  • If you don’t teach your children these lessons, you’re a bad parent.
  • Being afraid is a great reason to believe in something even if you’re not sure it’s real.

Obviously these lessons seem ridiculous to me. So why do I feel like I need to explain why I think each of them aren’t true?  This country need serious help.

    Nice. I saw a church sign as I drive today that said, “Why do you doubt?” I said out loud, “Because there’s no good evidence.”

      And I’m sure the people who put that sign up have never spoken to an atheist before. So they honestly don’t know the answer to their question.
