American Atheists Holiday 'Myth' Billboards To Go Up In New Jersey, Ohio, Florida (VIDEO)

American Atheists Holiday 'Myth' Billboards To Go Up In New Jersey, Ohio, Florida (VIDEO)

Commented Nov 17, 2011 at 17:02:28 in Religion

“if a billboard offends you then you must get a life. i dont care about billboards, people pay to place them, if that is what they do with their $$ so be it. if i believe in God that is my business, i dont need to proclaim it to the world. it is sad that every year its the same arguments around christmas. If you dont want to celebrate it then dont. I dont see the atheist putting signs up against ramadan, or any other religions holy day. they must be afraid of the repucussions. i got an idea for a billboard for those athiests. how about one about the muslims like, " mohammed was a pedophile, you cannot believe him". he did mary a little girl. you athiest dont dare.”

“Actually a Danish cartoonist was threatened with death and his cartoon is all over the net now and you can still find it today.AND author Ayan Hersi Ali, female and former Muslim did a documentary with a film maker about the treatment of women in Islam. The filmmaker was stabbed to death and a death threat to her was stabbed in his chest.

And people like Hitchens and Ayan Hersi Ali blaspheme Islam all the time. So it is only a matter of time before that phrase would be on a billboard. But, atheists would be fair about it. I am quite sure anyone called "Mary" back then would have been 9 to11 years old when married, so that would make Joseph and God pediophiles too. Back then all cultures treated girls as bartering chips for marriage, and they would have married at a young age.

But why should I bow to threats of physical violence? Is that how you get people to like you? If so, you need help.”

Rob Bell Leaving Mars Hill Church To Embark On 'Fit To Smash' Tour (VIDEO)

“sorry for the delay, after reviewing the above scriptures i dont see how we are to tithe in the modern church:
Numers 18:21: But the TITHES of the children of Israel ... I have given to the Levites to inherit. is your pastor a levite? it is funny because the jews who follow the old testament dont even tithe anymore, they dont know who is from the tribe of levi, they lost their recordbooks during their defeat. there is no temple to take it to either.

Duet 12:17 Let us learn. Who was to partake of all these tithes and good things of the herd and of the land and of the trees? Everyone was to rejoice before the Lord. Did you see "money" in the list of things they were to bring before the Lord to rejoice? W Rejoicing and eating one’s own tithe before the Lord, was a very personal and reverent act of worship and communion with God. Not unlike prayer.
Luke11:42 And just what kind of a blessing did Jesus pronounce on these Pharisees for their "tithe of the mint and herbs" (not money)? No blessing, just a startling "WOE"!

no mention of tithe by paul, john, peter, james.
think paul tithed? no he was a tentmaker he did not have to.
think Jesus tithed? no, the was a carpenter, he did not have to.

“I am a christian and i totally agree with you. the churches should be turned into community centers. the people should go back to the basics and meet in houses and learn to love each other. the problem is that most church goers depend on some preacher to fufill their needs for the week. The way the church is done today is not biblical, starting with the role of a pastor, to the tithe, there is no biblical support for it. it is tradition. i say take the tax status away. i say if any organization takes in money they should pay taxes. www.iamtiredofchurch.com has some cool articles about the role of the pastor and such.”

“you hit the nail on the head. there is no verse demanding people to tithe. it is funny but the Jews dont tithe, they cant. only the levite priest can recieve the tithe (which was never money). I dont think the TV evangelists have the good of the people in mind. it is about what they can get out of it. it is a job for them. they are now preaching how to be happy messages. forget about teaching people how to learn the word. www.iamtiredofchurch has some cool articles.”

“there is not one scripture that says a person must tithe, not one! these tv evangelist are crazy. At least rob bell believes that Jesus is the savior of the world as the bible say. most believe it but say God will send some to hell. Rob bell should stand up to all the tv evangelist who preach garbage. The truth is that Jesus will save the world. is that not what God commissioned him to do. Do you believe Jesus will fail to save the world. www.iamtiredofchurch.com has some articles that are very in depth regarding these topics”

“if you listen to the televangelists you will hear all the garbage spewing from their mouths, it is a billion dollar business. Jesus preached love. not hell, not be invovled in politics, not free will, not money, not life in the clouds. These fables will keep people running from the institution. many believe that Jesus is the savior of the world, but they dont believe he will save the world. he will, plain and simple. if he will not then the whole bible contradicts. iamtiredofchurch.com has a good article on this. it is all about love. being left or right wing makes no difference to God. these are just titles that are from man, God call us his children.”

“It will be tough to enter into the following age, you are correct. but after that age comes the great white throne judgement. judgement means make correct. He will do just that, make man correct. i am sure you believe this scripture: 1Cr 15:22 For as in Adam all die,(but do you believe this half) even so in Christ shall all be made alive. i dont think you believe the second half. how about 1Cr 15:23 But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming. or 1Cr 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. But you probably think that Jesus will reign forever right? sorry to bust your balloon but he will not reign forever. Remember that paul told timothy to teach that jesus is the savior of all men especially those who believe. Anyway, you will now probably say how about hell? how about it, hell is the place of the dead, or sheol, or gehenna fire, or tartarus, make sure you clarify which hell you speak. It is hard for man to accept that God is love.”

“Jesus did not preach to go save the world and condemn all who do not agree. He preached about love. His parables are about how God will save all mankind. The lost sheep, coin etc.. are not about a lonely christian that left a church. it is about how God will, in time, save all humanity. that is why that site iAMtiredofCHURCH . com makes sense. Church goers call jesus the savior of the world but believe he will save a few. The first christians we lovers of people.”

“Hate to bust your twisted ballon but Jesus never said any such thing. Broad is the way that leads to destruction and many there be that find it. Straight is the gate that leads to life and few there be that find it. Aint no wiggle room for righteousness. Jesus is the only way. Yes. Because of His great love, He made the provision for who so ever will to receive the gift of salvation. But He said: Now, if you love me, you will keep my commandments." You got to trust and obey if you want to live with Jesus! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than a for arich man make it in.”

“Thou is very correct there. Thou`z statement reminded me of a party I had for some friends a couple weeks ago, It was a blast. I served up dolfin (ph=f) steaks on the grill. It was a great time & all my guests had a lovely time. Sure takes time to prepare a party like that though. 1st you have to catch them sneaky little hose, they are pretty fast too. I have found that 2 sticks of dynamite will slow them down, @ least so that 1 can harpoon them. 1se they are on land the fun really gets started, even though catching them is fun too. I served my guests without telling them what I was serving, thought I would surprise them. I did have to prepare the fishes before my guests got here though. It`s pretty easy to prepare, all you need is a chain saw to cut them into steak sized pieces. I also have a great recipe for fish sauce that all my guests just loved, if any 1 wants the recipe just ask for it on here, you`ll be glad you did.”
