Hi everyone

I am a follower of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I am here to discuss Christianity as well as science and philosophy. I look forward to getting to know you better. My background is that of agnostic materialism, growing up in a secular household. I gave my life to the Lord last year, and He has changed my life big time..through Him I got away from addiction and depression, and now I experience joy and contentment in place of those things. See you around the board.

Oh, that's such wonderful news - I'm really glad you think we're all so very interested in your realignment.
I trust you'll be sharing some bible verses with us?

Mmm. It always starts out friendly enough. We'll see.

Sure, I think this is a good one:

Matthew 11:25

At that time Jesus said, "I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.

After that, how about a video of a cheeky octopus?

"discuss" christaininanity.




Why?





Srsly. Why?
Do you honestly, and I am using that in it's very literal sense, think you have something novel and new to tell us which will prompt a "discussion"? I suggest you lay it out immediately and precisely, because, being awash in "the holiday spirit", we don't have a lot of patience for buybullshit. See: Egor and *cough* Just the Truth. And we are not exactly the sympathetic type to listen patiently to your history of woes and personal emotional journey without commenting as we see fit. We are not bound to be "nice" to you (did you catch the name of this place?) and do not owe you any respect just because you show up. I'm not feeling nice today, but I might tomorrow, so I shall pre-empt any of your lip to me with . Just to get that out of the way.

Otherwise, just skip the jeebus crap we are all painfully familiar with and join/contribute to a "discussion" on one of the science threads. Or have at the philosophy of libertardism breaking out like a plague. You can't miss it.

Personally, my money is on you being as dull, unoriginal, and uninspiringly arrogant as every other theist that has been here. Except Quaker. I miss Quaker. He was an honest theist. The only one, actually, to grace this forum. Because you have already admitted that you got jeebus to replace your addiction and depression, telling us that you are better now so we will be, too, if only we gave *cough* Him a chance is implicitly implying that we are also afflicted which such miseries, and that you have the one and only very special secret answer to all that's wrong with us. Which falls into the "arrogant" category, in case you're thick. (Odds are good on that one, too, as you're here in the first place).

So. What have you got?

I'm not illustrating that, ILJ. :shudder:

Besides, the new douche has already revealed how little there is of its allegedly drug-addled brain.

I'm here because this is an atheist forum which seems to welcome debate, and I am a Christian. If you don't like to talk about Christianity, then why not shut down your debate and religion forums? As far as a particular topic, I am not predisposed towards any. Feel free to venture one.

Hi!

If you're here to further your understanding of your ideals by having them challenged by people who actually know what they're talking about, and are willing to adapt to that, you'll be fine.

If you're here to "convert" us dirty addiction riddled atheists with your Jesus truth-bombs and refuse to budge on the crap you spew, you're going to get ridiculed. Really harshly. There will be dog-poo.


And remember to have fun!


(BTW I'm not claiming to be one of those "know what they're talking about" people I meantioned above, in case you thought I was being facetious).

This early, let's give him(?) benefit of the doubt. Even as crusty an old atheist as I am tends to capitalize those things out of habit.

It was not due to any special respect for Jesus or His Father, it was just one of the rules I was taught for writing.

Kate already brought poo into the debate in another thread, so it seems too late. Ridicule is what atheists do to Christians, so I don't expect anything more than that really. Occassionally, people surprise me, and those are the people I am here to talk to. Everyone else is just going to do what they're already doing now.

Nice to meet you, btw.

I've never seen it before. Strange that someone from a secular background and new to the superstition should pick it up.
