It's strange isn't it?

A non-Christian replies to a cute little Christian apologetic. Loved by Catholics and Protestants alike, this thing shows up periodically in email inboxes everywhere.

Isn't it strange how a 20 dollar bill seems like such a large amount when you donate it to church, but such a small amount when you go shopping?

We do get something for the $20, but it doesn't seem to go that far. In contrast, we get nothing for donating it to an organization that promotes imaginary friends and imaginary enemies. So it seems like a lot to give for nothing.

 

Isn't it strange how 2 hours seem so long when you're at church, and how short they seem when you're watching a good movie?

This one is real easy. You're totally bored in church most of the time, but when you go to the movie you are relaxing and being entertained, and an additional onus, at least for women, no one is judging you by your shoes and/or dress.

 

Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?

That's easy to address -- There is something great about a two-way conversation with a real live person that is hard to drum up with a friend that only lives in your imagination.

 

Isn't it strange how difficult and boring it is to read one chapter of the Bible, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a popular novel?

One is boring, and one is not. Although there are some things in the buybull that are redeeming -- it reads like a poorly written novel. It contains everything for a great story or movie ... sex, incest, torture, magic, hate, love, terror, fear, bestially, human sacrifice, animal cruelty and rape. All the various contradictions, however, make it incomprehensible nonsense.

 

Isn't it strange how everyone wants front-row-tickets to concerts or games, but they do whatever is possible to sit at the last row in Church?

One is exciting and could even be considered thrilling by hardcore fans, so of course people want a good view. In church people choose the back row where they can sleep. (I have seen the sleeping holy rollers in the back rows, apparently dragged to church by their wives/husbands).

 

Isn't it strange how we need to know about an event for Church 2-3 weeks before the day so we can include it in our agenda, but we can adjust it for other events in the last minute?

You gotta work yourself up emotionally for boring events and also have time to create an excuse to not go -- thats the reason for the 2-3 weeks. The "other events" are likely to be fun/exciting, so we can make time for them very quickly because we like fun, not boredom.

 

Isn't it strange how difficult it is to learn a fact about God to share it with others, but how easy it is to gossip?

Thats because of the bad name that most Christians have. Christians are known for harassment, pressure tactics, fear tactics, etc., when they are preaching at the rest of us. I don't care for gossip, but at least while they are gossiping about each other they are not using harassment, pressure tactics, fear tactics, etc., and everyone else.

 

Isn't it strange how we believe everything that magazines and newspapers say, but we question the words in the Bible?

Yeah, this is an easy one. The buybull is FULL OF CONTRADICTIONS. In one place the book spouts forth one thing, and in the next place it spouts the opposite. And what about taking snakes and donkeys? Besides, the buybull doesn't make sense when checked by using its own standards. Review Is the supreme being confused?, where buybull is compared against itself. Its just "scriptures" right out of the holy book. Crack open a buybull and follow along.

 

Isn't it strange how everyone wants a place in heaven, but they don't want to believe, do, or say anything to get there?

Well, we all give up on Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny after awhile because there is no evidence that those characters exist. Heaven? Re-read the preceding sentence for the answer.

 

Isn't it strange how we send jokes in e-mail's and they are forwarded right away, but when we are going to send messages about God, we think about it twice before we share it with others?

Jokes bring laughter and happiness whereas most gawd drivel is designed to terrify and scare children and adults. As a parent, which one would you rather I send to your kid? A good rated-G joke that will make his/her classmates laugh and smile, or a strongly evangelical message about hell? Or better yet, how about just a buybull verse or two. Like this one: Deuteronomy 23:1 ESV, No one whose testicles are crushed or whose male organ is cut off shall enter the assembly of the Lord. Great wisdom there, huh?

 

IT'S STRANGE ISN'T IT?

 

Now that you've read this message, will you forward it to anybody that you consider a friend, family member or foe (enemy).

This one I have to totally agree with. I am forwarding this and hope people learn something from it.

I got so annoyed with myspace I pretty much stopped checking mine. A million "If you REALLY love God's you will forward this" messages. One reason I don't give my email out to most people is to avoid this kind of mass sent bullshit, so I don't have to get offended and say something rude. Oh yeah and just for shits and giggles, check out Jesus's myspace. It's hilarious. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fusea...iendid=54718018

 

If you can wade through the spam there are some pretty funny people giving up love for JC. Who knew he was a Kelly Clarkson fan?

For a very long time now I have been thinking there is a great need to collect and collate this kind of christian crap which so clearly displays the flaws of xtianity but does it **in their own words**.

 

If you read between the lines of these sayings, the writer betrays the most honest and true sentiments that xtians will not openly admit.

 

Example:

Isn't it strange that you can't find a word to say when you're praying, but you have no trouble thinking what to talk about with a friend?

 

I remember the "a ha" moment reading the webmasters eximony where he talks about all the xtians who had no interest in discussing theology, reading god's word or praying. I remember thinking... yea, there were scads of them where I went to church".

 

It was the praying idea that struck me most... I mean really... if you have a true and personal relationship with the greatest and most wonderful entity of the universe of all universes... then it should not be hard to pray - huh?

 

Yet, in the quote above... the most common sentiment of all christians is made plain... praying and reading god's word is hard because is pure effort that comes from yourself and not god.

 

The reality is that it does not accomplish anything and xtians resist doing those things because deep deep down they know... it is pointless.

 

What I'm getting at though... it that from whatever angle you look at xtianity, whether that be televangelism, prosperity gospel, dumb doctrines, end times belief, healing, prophecy or popular xtian media... xtians are constantly demonstrating that the lives they live are in complete denial of their profession.

 

Everything produced by a xtian is indelibly tainted with flawed values and poor reasoning. From Chick Tracts to these insipant email chains... I find it excellent evidence that at the very least, if there is a god... it is certainly not a christian god.
