A theist is a theist is a theist!

Like I have pointed out in my blog many times there are different kinds of theists. Some of them are extremely fundamental and are driven more by what they feel (subjective experiences) than on actual empirical evidence those are aptly named fundamentalists. Then there are those that are not as obsessed with the literal translation of the bible nor with some of the older traditions found in the scriptures; they claim to love science and reason. But they are willing to compromise reason for their beliefs which they see as reasonable, those are aptly named liberals.

According to the Sage dictionary and thesaurus the word fundamentalist is defined as:'The interpretation of every word in the sacred texts as literal truth.' Given this definition, the basic foundational tenet of Christianity that Jesus died, rose from the dead, and will return again sometime in the future makes all Christians when it comes to this matter a fundamentalist. They believe in the redemptive power of the former events as the one and only cure that will free them from their vile selves and grant them immortality as a reward for their faith.

From a Christian perspective the world is bleak and drab and man is inherently evil and incapable of being good because he cannot meet the standards of their imaginary guy in the sky. Like parrots they quote endless scriptures about how filthy we all are and how hopeless we all are without Jesus. Autophobia otherwise known as self loathing is symptomatic of all Christians since they think that without their delusion there is no hope for them or the human race as a whole is lost.

Driven by the lies that they have learned through the scriptures they buy into the idea that life is not worth living if there is no ultimate purpose. They accuse atheists of being atheist because they don't want to be held accountable for their evil deeds in this life. We as a whole are morally bankrupt and hopeless without being washed in the blood of Jesus. The truth is that there are atheists and I include myself among them that have more morals than any hypocritical Christian can hope to have.

There are atheist who are like myself good without a belief in God and quite frankly don't have any need for that delusion. What I've learned from my experiences is that when it comes to Christians no matter how liberal or fundamentalists they might seem, in the end they are all just fundamentalist. A theist is a theist is a theist!
