assume : to think that something is true or probably true without knowing that it is true
Samuel L. Jackson in The Long Kiss Goodnight
It is my opinion that the very concept of faith is nothing more than an assumption. Faith is hoping that what you claim to believe is absolutely and undeniably correct despite all the evidence to the contrary, or as Christians like to call their preferred myths "the truth." The Christian faith makes a lot of accusations against everyone and anyone who refuses to believe their fables. Although their own scriptures and so called savior says that they shall not judge so that they too may not be judged it is actually what they do best!
Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
According to the author of John (whoever he/she was) Jesus made this very startling claim I have just cited. But these simple words embody the entire faith of Christianity and Christians the world over. Jesus is made to say in his fiction that many try to pass off as a biography that he is truth, in him there is life, and only through him can you get to the father and obtain salvation! It is this text and many others like it in the N.T. that give Christians the arrogance they so proudly display when they challenge science and society as a whole. They are so severely deluded that they no longer can tell reality from fiction.
But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as firstfruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 2 Thessalonians 2:13
There is one thing that Christians say to me when I meet them in person entirely by chance that annoys me to death. Here we go; let me set up the scenario for you. You are at a public place where there are a lot of people. The DMV an employment center etc. You strike up a conversation with someone and inform them of how hard it has been for you to find employment. They then tell you that you have to pray and trust in the Lord that it will come just at the right time when you least expect it. You then reply as I often do that I don't believe in God and that you don't think prayer could ever help you. Then you get the dreaded: "Do you think that the fact that we are talking has happened by chance? You may have forgotten God, but he has not forgotten you we are talking right here right now because God has a plan for your life."
for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Now you see where they get it from! They're are seriously not making this shit up they are just following the instruction manual of the most immoral and degrading book ever produced! The next time you hear Christians making stupid and unfounded statements not based on facts or reality try to be patient and cut them some slack. It's not entirely their fault! Most likely the babble that is driveling out of their mouth without thought is probably written in their "holy" book and has been taught to them by a professional liar; the clergy.
Remember Christians and Muslims have been indoctrinated and find in their faith their last and only hope in this life and the next one that they so dearly long for. They can't wait till the day that they see their imaginary god man descending from the clouds with the angels. They long to hear the imaginary trumpet sound as their bodies are airlifted to the heavens in the blinking of an eye so that they could be with their delusion forever and ever amen. They learned this from a priest, pastor, or evangelist at one time or another and for some reason they chose to believe it. They did not think for one second how ridiculous these claims were from a rational standpoint.
Forget the talking snakes and donkeys! They are focused on the N.T. which features a god becoming a man and dying for their imaginary affliction they call sin. Not only did our god man die but he rose from the dead and hung around for a few days or even forty days it all depends on which gospel you read since no one can seem to get the story straight! He then floated up into the heavens and disappeared into the clouds to be with himself. But before he left he told his followers "don't worry I will be back shortly" (I'm paraphrasing of course!) And it's been about two thousand years and we still have people silly enough to believe that he is coming back! I guess you just had to be there!
