It's Laughable

It's laughable whenever I deal with a religious conservative.  I may not be the most jovial person on Earth, but it's crazy when you read their responses.  Tons of hate-of which they want to accuse me.  However, Proverbs 15:1 states that a gentle answer turns away wrath, and Proverbs 18:19 states that someone wronged is harder to convince than conquering a fortified city.

There are many people who were wronged in this world, and we run into them every day.  The best thing to do is to give them some kind of benefit of the doubt because we don't know their experiences.  Furthermore, even if we are familiar with their experiences, we didn't experience it from their situations.

That's one of the main problems with most Americans, as many of them have had relatively easy lives and were able to maneuver the obstacle course which everyone must go through without much trouble.  However, these are the same group who criticize those who experienced trouble and were never helped.

That's why religiosity is more humorous than a dead baby joke.   These people love to hit others over the head with a holy book, but they do nothing to help them.  That's why there is so much hatred-especially in this country these days.

Doesn't their book tell these people to be merciful?   Ah!  Here it is!

Jude 1:22!   "Be merciful to those who doubt."

Now, how long do we give these people?  Matthew 18:22 gives the answer.  With respect to whom exactly our neighbors are, the answer is found here: Luke 10:25-37 .

It's simply amazing how hateful most Americans who proclaim to be religious really are, but then Gandhi addressed that when he said that He liked Christ, but not Christians.  Why?  Because they don't act like Christ.  They don't even try-especially when there's a Republican in the White House or in the Governor's Mansion, but that's okay.  Let them have their All Saint's Day and wait till they face their doom in Matthew 25:42-46.

There are many people who struggle spiritually because of the toxic religiosity of hypocrites who don't even try to live out the Great Commission; those Sunday morning Christians who become cruel monsters as soon as they leave the sanctuary.  It's sad that there is no longer any mercy in religion, but that's okay.

Watch the tides, brother.  Just watch the tides.  2 Peter 3:4 is coming very soon.  That's when it all changes for the better.
