I just discovered a new-to-me atheist blog by a well-spoken man named Kevin. Please read his thoughts over at Memoirs of an ex-Christian and enjoy!
One comment on this entry about Moses and the Torah stands out as a classic, priceless example of “spirit-filled” Christian rhetoric that you just have to see to believe (but if you believe it, you’ve got other issues). I’ve left it in all its caps lock glory, so please forgive me if you leave this blog with a migraine; but at least I’ve hidden it below the fold:
“AND TO ALL THE ATHEIST, HAVE YOU EVER EXPERIENCED THE HOLY GHOST? HAVE YOU EVER FELT THE PRESENCE OF GOD? IF YOU NEVER REALLY OPENED UP TO HIM, HOW CAN YOU DENY HIM? WHO DO YOU CALL ON WHEN YOU ARE IN DIRE NEED? UM….I WONDER IS IT GOD? I GUESS WE WILL NEVER KNOW….BUT GOD DOES. HE KNOWS EVERTHING. REPENT BEFORE IT’S TO LATE. AND IF THE BIBLE ISN’T REAL HOW DO YOU EXPLAIN REVELATIONS? IT WAS WRITTEN UM…HOW LONG AGO? AND LOOK WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD TODAY. MY, MY, MY THE devil IS CUNNING. he COMES TO KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY. he KILLED YOUR BELIEF IN GOD, he STOLE YOUR JOY, AND he DESTROYED YOUR SALVATION. BUT I REBUKE HIM WITH THE PRECIOUS SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST WHO IS MY LORD AND SAVIOUR. WHO WAS BORN OF THE VIRGIN MARY, AND CRUCIFIED ON THE CROSS, AND ROSE IN THREE DAYS WITH ALL POWER IN HIS HANDS. GLORY BE TO GOD!!!!!!!”
Now is that not the most winning comment you’ve read in a month? It could be framed, it’s so perfect.
