One claim that christians like to make

     One claim that christians like to make is that "every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is lord." Of course, this is patent nonsense unless they think that the people involved will be operated like puppets on a string. They have already announced that, in such an event, it would be too late and that no mercy would be shown.
     Think about it for a moment. The only reason that anyone would bow or confess in such a situation is if he were hoping that it would improve his position with a revealed ruler who was quite clearly corrupt. But with such an incentive removed, there is no reason that anyone who disbelieved in this life would cooperate. It makes it that much easier to perform THE LAST GREAT ACT OF DEFIANCE.
     Now, I don't think that the christian god is real. I do know that, if he is real, he is wicked. But, if there is a god, it is probably not the christian variety. The god described in the bible likes to step in, toot his horn, and ruin people's lives. And, quite frankly, I haven't seen very much of that.
