Still have any Gods? If so, who or what?

Found 3 results

  1. Dan Barker has done a great job of cataloging and commenting on the hundreds of bible verses that show the christian god to be evil and mean-spirited. If you've ever wanted a handy reference book to use when rebutting a "god is love" christian, this is the one! Dan also brought into focus something I hadn't really understood before. If you believe the New Testament states that Jesus and God are one and have been from the beginning, then sweet Jesus is as much to blame for the ordering of genocide and sexual slavery in the Old Testament as his white-haired father.
  2. Just finished this book by David Madison, who is a bible scholar and an ex-pastor. One of the best I've seen at describing why christianity fails from historical, moral and philosophical perspectives. He has a good sense of humor and I found the book to be very readable. The topics he brings up can't be swatted away by christian apologists (not that they haven't tried). If you are looking for a source to help crystallize your thoughts on the key problems with christianity I recommend this book. Here's a quote from one reviewer... "Dr. David Madison pulls no punches in this wide-ranging critique that explains why Christianity fails to satisfy human reason, evidence, or even basic human social needs. From the problem of evil to the claim that the Bible is the word of God, Dr. Madison exposes the problems of Christian belief as few others can. As a former believer, he understands why Christians believe what they do. As a formally trained biblical scholar, he can detect all the ways that bad biblical scholarship is being used to prop up Christian belief. Given its highly accessible language, Ten Tough Problems in Christian Thought and Belief is ideal for those who wish to start exploring why Jesus is not the answer, and why Christianity has never given good answers to life's most important questions." --Hector Avalos, author of The Bad Jesus: The Ethics of New Testament Ethics and The End of Biblical Studies.
  3. http://www.amazon.com/Crooked-Cross-Journey-Religious-ebook/dp/B0073NQBXC/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1328389907&sr=1-2 This is the link to "Crooked Cross: A Journey Out of Religious Abuse" on amazon.com. This heart-wrenching story starts at my early childhood, being born into a strict fundamentalist Christian environment. It traces my steps as I fell deeper and deeper into harmful religion, and ended up in a cultic world that I didn't know how to escape. I did escape, however, and start down the road of healing and freedom. Find out how. -Willow-
