New To The Flock

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus. I am male , 32 yoa , raised as a catholic ( till I refused to participate). I have recently (as of 3 years now) decided to follow the teachings of Jesus (as described in the new testament). I am interested in apologetics so would like to learn the position of those who represent any and all system of beliefs. Please feel free to also question me about the hope that is in me . I do not adhere to any organization , so for now all answers about my beliefs will be solo scriptura. Thanks for having me!

If you believe in ridiculous fairy tales about a sky bastard some sort of god, why are you here? I'm sorry, but you won't find any buybull apologists here.

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

I'm sure you can figure it out. It sounds like you are already challenged enough; no need to go looking for more.

As I have said before, fuck those who forgive.

I don't recall where I said it, but I know I did.

welcome to our humble forum, chrisandrew.

i think your stay here will be amusing to us. you see, we are not big on the apologist thingie....

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

it's like a schlongsucker, but with more facial pubic hair.

I was not born believing in the message of Jesus . I made a decision based on valid reason. I will share them if you like or not. Were any of you born athiests or did you decide to become one because of some reason ? I respectfully would ask you please share . If you would I would be thankful.

we are all born atheist.
religion is pounded into us since an early age (for most of us, not all).
once we realize belief in any gods is silly, we become atheists.

what are your valid reasons?
