Not a Very Christian Thing To Do...

I always say, to each their own where religion is concerned. I belive in something, but it's called me. I believe in me. I know that I am the only one responsible for myself, and I can't ask "someone" unseen to make my life better and lay around and expect it to happen. That's just retarded. I lean towards buddhist beliefs because of this idea.

It scares the people that I know that are "die hard bible bangers" because they think I worship false gods. Gasp. And they always feel the need to tell me that I may go to hell. Well I can't go somewhere I don't believe in. Like I actually care. It makes me laugh. I have my own beliefs. They aren't less real because you don't accept them. Compassion is the common denominator in most religions. We can agree on one thing.

Anyway, I don't want to get into how much I disbelieve in this whole website, but I saw this on geekologie, and thought it was hilarious. These people are taking your hard earned money, to send an email to your loved ones once God swoops down and takes them all in the rapture, and you (I'll be there too, we can hang out and drink wine together, don't fret..) are left behind because we are sinners. Seriously?

This is my favorite part ""WHY" is one last chance to bring them to Christ and snatch them from the flames! "

Ok, so, I'm more jealous I didn't think of this idea, than I am outraged.

P.S. I officially gained 4lbs on vacation. In a week. It's been two weeks trying to lose it again. I'm also blaming my period. Because I am a woman, and it should at least have some use to me.

the greatest cause of disbelief in christianity today is/are "christians". It makes it hard for people like me, who believe yet are shunned by those that are closed minded about christianity because of all the millions that have come before me.

What makes me laugh more than just these stupid sites, like the link you have in the post, is how those that do not believe talk about tolerance and yet those same people can't tolerate someone that claims belief in Christ.

And they call us the hypocrites?

I believe in you too...unless you are Santa Claus - because my Mom said he isn't real.

Are you Santa?
