Recently I received a message from an anonymous commenter who basically attacked me for expressing my beliefs or opinions regarding theism. This person then went on and threatened me with their imaginary deity and how he would "deal with me after I'm dead."
Nothing irks me more than Christians threatening me with their fairy tale god and the imaginary consequences I will suffer for simply questioning the veracity of their beliefs. This demonstrates clearly as I have implied many times that Christianity is a religion that is based mostly on fear rather than love. Their god is not a benevolent loving father as they try to portray him, he is a cruel maniacal dictator that stands in the same category as Hitler, Stalin, or Mao.
Christians call themselves "servants" of the Lord, they must surrender their will to their god;"not my will but thy will be done." When it comes to the free will argument the only free will you have as a believer is to become a servant or suffer the consequences for your refusal for all eternity. Just like their god Christians are hypocrites and underneath that superficial layer of love lies a deep dark hatred and resentment for all those that oppose their views. The bloody history of the church itself attests to this.
When will you theists get it? Your threats about eternal torment are mute and inconsequential when they are directed at atheists. It's like threatening Superman with a machine gun; those bullets can't harm him they just bounce off. We, and I speak for all atheists on this one don't believe in your bible or its so called divine inspiration. We don't accept the fairy tales you choose to call truths as facts, when they are nothing more than fictions and myths. In fact, Christianity like all other religions that have preceded it are rooted in ancient myths and beliefs.
One of the things that pushed me further away from church and God was the idle threats. As soon as you stopped going to church and ran into others from the congregation in the streets that was the first thing you would hear. They would remind you how having known God you were held accountable for your rebellion and your punishment would be that much worst. On the one hand you preach how God is loving and merciful and in the same hand you preach how he will punish all those that refuse him. That's just one of the many contradictions in your theology.
For future reference if you want to comment on my blog and all you do is throw idle threats at me, do me the favor and keep them to yourselves. I know them all probably a lot better than most of you know them. I have read the bible 4 times in its entirety which is more than I can say for most Christians.
