A message to christians.

     Dan claims that he is commanded to spread the warning to people about the "dangers" of not accepting Jesus but that he is under no obligation to try to be convincing in any way. If we are to assume that the christian god is real. Dan's efforts are like a highway worker trying to warn people of a collapsed bridge by wearing a jester's costume, doing a silly dance, falling down a lot and saying "A snake is swallowing the sun, the mountains are turning into giant stone warriors, killer rabbits are invading the city, the bridge is out, gophers are killing people with the lasers in their eyes, and space aliens are kidnapping thousands." Who here would be convinced that such a highway worker was doing his job? No one. He's not warning anyone of anything. He's making it look like a big joke.
     Now, if christianity is wrong, like I believe, it doesn't matter much. On the other hand, you have the story of the separation of the sheep from the goats. In that story, the people on Jesus's (left?) side ask him, did they not perform miracles in his name. Who do you think those people might be? I certainly don't claim to do anything in the name of Jesus. Those people have to come from the ranks of asserted believers. Dan, and those of you who use the same strategy, could very well find yourselves told that he never knew you. Perhaps you had better hope that I am right.

Yup, for Dan the Bible does not consist of God's revealed Word, but a series of incoherent advisories.

How about if it's right Pv what then?

Hezekiah:

     If it's right and you have been deliberately unpersuasive, then you will likely be among those protesting "didn't we do all these works in your name?" I won't be in that crowd because I openly do not believe in Jesus.
     There are all kinds of "what if"s. I'm not going to hide under the bed because of them.

Pv,

Where do I begin?

You said that I will most likely be one of those who Jesus rejects mind telling me how did you come to this conclusion?

Hezekiah:

     I said if it's right and you have been deliberately unpersuasive. You are the one who has passed judgement on whether you have been deliberately unpersuasive.

Hezekiah Ahaz said...

Is that how you win arguments Pv By the way why won't you believe in Jesus?

Pvblivs said...

     No arguments here. I am only stating facts. Anyone protesting that he has done works in Jesus's name will have called himself a christian. It would be meaningless for someone who gives no merit to doing something in his name to make such a claim.
     I won't believe in one legend out of many because it has no more substantial evidence than all of the other competing legends.

Pv,

Have I ever said "I did works in Jesus name"?

Pv do you exist?
