The million dollar question: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here's a quick test. Have you ever told a lie, stolen anything, or used God's name in vain? Jesus said, "Whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart." Have you looked with lust? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done those things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. The Bible warns that if you are guilty you will end up in Hell. That's not God's will. He sent His Son to suffer and die on the cross for you. You broke God's Law, but Jesus paid your fine. That means He can legally dismiss your case. He can commute your death sentence: "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." Then He rose from the dead and defeated death. Please, repent (turn from sin) today and trust in Jesus alone, and God will grant you the gift of everlasting life. Then read your Bible daily and obey it.
So! I had to respond. Would be rude not to, don't you think?
The million dollar question: Do you have an original thought in your head?
Pretty much the entire message you sent me, was copied from one of Ray Comforts rants - so I'm thinking the answer is 'no'.
Did you honestly think that sending me this was going to convert me? All it's done is make me laugh. I've shared it round with some friends and it made them laugh too.
You can tell me I'll end up in hell all you want, but no-one has yet proven that hell even exists. No-one has yet proven god exists.
Oh, and if you want to be taken seriously, and perhaps make a real stab at converting people, find something other than Ray Comfort's idiotic ramblings to rely on. Oh, and I advise against proselytising to random strangers.
If you wanted to turn this into a real discussion, your opening message should have said so, rather than being one big hate filled speech, copied almost verbatim from one of Ray Comfort's videos.
If you really want to actually talk about this - go ahead, get back to me with something a bit more substantial. And try to make it your own words, rather than someone else's. I may actually take you seriously then.
I received a reply today. Admire it's utter brilliance!
umm smarty pants that was copied straight from a tract, not a video and by the way the whole thing is from comfort. your obviously not that evolved.
I felt SO PWND after reading that, that I had to respond immediately.
Oh. Oh my. I feel so small and inconsequential now. You have made me feel so bad! You pointed out that it's copied from a tract! Not a video! I feel so, so.. pwnd.
The point is, that they weren't your thoughts, they were Comfort's (and just to clear this up, he has used the exact same argument, with the exact same wording, in his videos.)
Come back to me when you have learned to use your own brain.
P.S. 'Smarty pants'? That was the best you could come up with? A derogatory snipe about my being more intelligent than you? Really?
Oh, and it's 'you're', not 'your' in that sentence. Just to let you know.
I'll let you know if she gets back to me.
Edit: She got back to me:
hah. thnak yuo so mcuh langaugeee atrs taechre.
Oh, they grow up so quickly these days, don't you think?
And I couldn'thelp it, I responded. Maybe now she'll go away?
I doubt it. I'll get back another snippy little message, I should think.
Seriously? I'm being told to grow up by someone seven years my junior? Someone who basically copy-pasted someone elses words to me, because they couldn't think for themselves? Someone who is apparently SO Christian, that she forgets her own teachings and insults me at every turn? Seriously?
Oh, how I laugh.
In fact, oh how my best friend, who has been a Christian all her life, laughed; and asked me to tell you to read your bible sometime and actually pay attention to it.
But, you know what? I'm thinking this is little more than a lost cause, because you are apparently so mature, so grown up, that instead of talking to me in your own words, you use someone elses, and instead of responding in a civil fashion, you insult me.
Read your bible, look at yourself in the mirror, and then see which one of us needs to 'GROW UP' (as you so delicately put it.)
Thank you for your time ^^
