Christianity is what anyone who claims he’s Christian says it is.
The beauty of Christianity is that it functions by saying nothing specific and accomplishing it’s goals wth false promise of the unwarrantable, and by suggestion that one understands when one only empathizes.
So every Christian thinks something different, ever faction thinks of Christianity differently, and none of them can falsify one another because there is nothing testable in it. You can make an excuse for anything.
This is useful because all of us have different emotional needs to satisfy our sense of our status in relation to others. This is why Christian devotion increases as ability decrease.
The best you can say is that one is relieved of status pressure, because one is relieved of real-world achievement, because one is relieved of the struggle of education, and as such one is relieved of the effort of adaptation. This is accomplished by the promise of ‘salvation’ (meaning forgiveness of your guilt), if you live by the word of Jesus Christ (exhaustive forgiveness for their failures). How many ChristiansChrist have there been? One. Everyone else just does the best he can. This is why xians are the underclass and everyone walks on them world wide. But, it allows the aristocracy to build a high trust society with good Christian laborers.
Only if the Christian laborers show up to fight the enemy on occasion, and do their ruthless pagan best.
What offends you is that I’m so precisely correct you can’t stand it.
Certainly a cynical take and one that completely ignores the large number of very learned men who practiced real Christian devotion. Not to mention that the Holy Bible is an unchanging text, so differences are a matter of practice rather than doctrine. And those differences exist in any religion that you care to mention. Lack most absolute claims, this one doesn’t hold to scrutiny.
The bible is not an unchanging text. It’s changed constantly over time. The Illiad is an unchanging text.
A lot of very learned men practice islam and marxism – both are deadly.
Explain to me the foundations of christianity. What premises does it all derive from. I can list them.
You know palm reading, numerology, astrology, scriptural interpretation, legal interpretation, are use the same technique, right? And that Christianity is dependent upon this technique? That marxist dialectic is dependent upon this technique? that this technique is how you use suggestion and social construction to create deception that justifies (excuses) anything?
If you have to choose between the greek literature and the jewish literature, which do you choose and why?
Given that Jewish literature gave us dark ages and 1B dead, and that new Jewish literature of Marxism, socialism, neomarxism, feminism, postmodernism, and political correctness, so far have produced 100M dead and cost us the loss of some or most civilizations of the modern age.
And given that european literature grants te primacy of man, the primacy of life, the joy of life, and man’s transcendence over the limitations of the universe.
And given that European reason has dragged mankind out of ignorance, superstition, hard labor, poverty, filth, starvation, disease, early death, and victimization by nature – why would you read death cults that make false promises that have produced such cancerous ends?
I mean, why do you read Jewish literature of death cult that results in addiction to falsehood, rather than European literature that has been the primary source of benefit to mankind?
1. Islam => Islamism;
2. judaism=>Communism, neo-marxism, and feminism.
3. Christianity =>Socialism, Postmodernism and Political Correctness;
Same crime against mankind by false-promise in different dress?
What is the difference between baiting people into usury and gambling in the present world, and baiting people into drug and alcohol use and addiction, and baiting people into death cults with the promise of life after death, in exchange for undermining western civilization’s truth, reason, science and natural law – the civilization that DISCOVERED gods laws of the physical, natural, and evolutionary universe – and in doing so discovered that the jewish literature is in fact, the anti-god, anti-life, ant-truth.
What kind of sick twisted person ‘believes’ in such obvious lies with such obvious destructive effects?
