Just abandon religion overall. It has too many hassles. Christianity forces you to go to mass every fucking sunday.


And, Mettaur. If you were trying to be brutal but honest, then at least be honest.
Uh, that would be Catholics. What most of the rest of us have isn't anything like that. As for forcing, it's more like highly recommended. The only requirements for being a Christian are:

*Admitting that you are a sinner. Hey I'm a Christian and I still need to admit to my transgressions.

*Believing that Jesus Christ died to cover our sins, and that he rose on the third day. This is the reason we don't sacrifice animals to atone for our sins.

*Committing your life to God. This could be as simple as providing a good example at work or for your kids/younger siblings, to actively telling people about the gospel, to being a missionary.

There are other things that are necessary to understanding what it is to be a Christian, but the above is the vital stuff needed to become a Christian. Most of the other stuff, like prayer and reading your bible, are meant to help you follow the path you've chosen. Going to church, our mass as you called it (though I think only the Catholics call it that), is recommended because it helps to have someone more spiritually mature to help you understand what you're reading and the vast majority of Pastors are more than willing to help you if you have a problem or a question about something.

As for me, personally, I have a hard time of it because I do screw up, a lot. I have done things and seen things and gone to sites that I wish I could scrub the memory away with acid, all just to forget my shame. I have fallen many, many times. I have definitely hurt my witness here and other places, both in person and through my online persona. I was and am still a sinner, but I still want to grow. I still want to show others the joy I find in Jesus. I still want to light a path so that others may follow.

Heh, kinda got off track there.
RAGE!

I now feel like ramming an icicle through my temple, and a big one. Like the tip out one end, and the base of it is sticking out the other.

Just had to listen to conversion shit for a solid week, I'm in a bad mood with religious speeches at teh moment. And if anyone plays “Message Pop”, I think I will light the radio on fire.
Been years since I was here. I've been at rehab since. So uh. Yknow, things got interesting.

Dude chill. I'm not trying to force my views on anyone. I'm just presenting my views and what Christianity is. If you have a problem with that then I'm sorry. Further more, why would you go to an event like that if you're going to hate it?
RAGE!

There is a contest to see who has the most wacked up drunk story, write in and you might win! Then again, Ninja is also in that, so best bet would be to gun for 2nd place.

Magic/book/candle shop. If anything should be the emphasis should go to the magic part.

if it's not too late, can you whack me on the list? School holidays started, I might have some spare time. And also could maybe PF Tools be on the map? It's my hardware store.

Don't hold your breath! He hasn't even drawn my secret bunker (which you don't know about) after I asked!

Anyway, let me muscle in on all this talk about what is the one true religion.
The answer, as all Harkovast readers already know, is that the one god we shoudl all worship is -
THANE.
Reasons?
1- He is a talking humanoid cat, which is awesome (despite what Zeph might tell ya.)

2- He is a God of war, and war is awesome (hence this game.)

3- He caused HIMSELF to exist by sheer force of will.

4- He fights evil stuff ALL THE TIME!

5- His followers can make purple, firey energy swords.

TESTIFY!!!

(Oh and thanks to jninjashadow for my bad ass General Patton Avatar! You da man, J!)

I don't care about any peace treaties made before, or anything, whenever I can, I will kill Kroatz. He's been a bit too rude this time. And I would love to destroy Kroatz's block. And I will.

You could always place a sign somewhere that says “Warning! Hark's super secret bunker. It's definitely not here!” :P
Those were my two cents.

Oh I didn't mean to target Christianity specifically. I was just using it as an example.

I bet other religions have their strings attached.

Yep, Islam and Judaism don't allow you to eat anything that doesn't have split hooves and chews the cud (No pork BBQ ;_;). Hindus don't eat beef (Most even think else I like is out). I think several others require prayer at certain times of the day and others require you to do more good deeds than bad with different deeds having different weights. The nice thing about Christianity is that while there is an ideal, you don't have to reach it to get to heaven. As I said in the rant above you accept God's forgiveness through Jesus and you're saved, for the rest of eternity.

Sorry if I sound pushy.

All right. There HAS to be some sort of software that's reading the text here and is dishing out advertisements that's relevant or related to the discussion. This is the third time I open this thread and find a religious advertisement waiting for me. I otherwise never see any religious related advertisements on this site.
