Hey /r9k/ any good virgin Christian fembots? OP is a Christian.
I am OP and I did post that Calvinists are Christians, I am a Catholic, but I believe that all who believe in Jesus Christ are Christians, and if they repent to will be united with him in heaven.
I went to Christian school, and there were som good pure ones. I was too beta to try anything, though. I was even really in love with one girl, but didn't think I had a chance. Come to find out later that she also was in love with me at the same time. Now she's off and married and I'm here alone. Missed opportunities.
Push yourself to socialize, after all, you are all like minded Christians, correct? You can do it, anon. Just stay a while after, talk to some cute femanon who's available over some after service coffee.
Believing in an afterlife would be nice. The thought of nothingness really scares me sometimes. Like if I died and woke up in hell, I'd be fucking ecstatic. Eternal pain would be much nicer than eternal nothing in my opinion.
Fucking go away you dumbass, it's literally almost word for world the same scripture. And anyways, it wouldnt matter anyway considering that they believe in Jesus and repent. All Christians go to heaven
Remember when the Pope would have little naked boys painted gold and have them as decorations at parties? I'm sure they went to heaven after that, and making people pay for indulgences and pay taxes so they wouldn't go to hell etc.
Also that paint was toxic so the little statue boys would die.
I cant believe people still take religion seriously. And i dont want to sound like one of the retard atheist. But religion has always been a way to control people and give them a certain values. And these values are mostly whats worth worshiping today, at least the ones actually relevant today. But i cant understand how people today can still believe that the bible was more then a books about how to live and that jesus was more then a philosopher using figures of speech to impose better values upon humans.
I'd like to meet a girl who isn't sexually promiscuous just because she believes in true monogamy.
It ruins it when somebody has to think they'll face eternal suffering and that's the only thing stopping them from being totally degenerate and hedonistic.
I pray that God will allow you to form a coherent sentence. Try actually studying history and look at all the progression religion has allowed, through technology and the arts. You atheists don't like to do much more than blame all of society's problems in religion.
Yeah, but "Semitic" is a larger group than just Jews. It's a language family including Arabs, ancient Phoenicians, and Babylonians.
Although "anti-Semitic" means someone who hates only Jews.
I do too, but I'm not theistic. I figured I shouldn't search for a Christian woman because I don't believe in omniscience or creation or anything like that, but I'm very dedicated to the moral values I grew up with.
Kurt Vonnegut separated from his wife because he couldn't ever accept the possibility of a God, and his wife was devoted to her theistic Christian faith. But he, like somebody like Thomas Jefferson, looked to Christ as sort of a model for human behavior and western values.
I think my biggest problem is that anybody I can ever meet who identifies as a Christian is either just lukewarm and thus might as well not even identify that way, strictly theistic and not very humanitarian-thinking (what I see as true Christianity), or just an atheist who is 9/10 times an unrepentant hedonist without any convictions.
whatever tho desu, I guess I have robot problems
I'm a Thelema practitioner who happens to have a vagina, ask me anything
Please actually read what i wrote. Im sorry if my English is bad im not a native speaker. I actually am not an atheist and like any reasonable person acknowledge the moral advancements that religion brought us and carried us through the beginning of civilization. What im actually critical about where people who took religion for more it should be. Religion today shouldn't only be about worshiping a god it should be about promoting good values in society because that is where it is actually needed. What i think is making people critical of religion is actually the fanatics who cant distinguish between literal meaning and implied one and the abuser , e.g. the vatican, of the religious system.
Thelema is an occult philosophical/faith system vaguely based in Nietzschean philosophy mixed with Gnostic mystery religions and Judeo-Christian mysticism and some influences from Eastern philosophy/religion.
The core of the belief system is that divinity is intrinsic and individual, each person has their own guardian angel who is in essence their own God. The guardian angel knows the person's destiny, his or her 'true will'. Sacrament is performed by experimentation (with hobbies, travel, sex, intoxicants, ect).
>some historian insists that Hitler was not a "true" Christian regardless of what Hitler said and believed himself
"I believe today I am acting in the sense of the almighty Creator. By fighting off the Jews, I am doing the lord's work"
You see exactly that attitude is what is wrong with modern religion. It is not about promoting their values and bettering the world but is about people like you who understand that they themselves are the true torturers of religion. By failing to understand that religion was never meant to be literal, that accepting every faith is actually part of being Christian. And by the way by Christian standards you will be the one rotting in hell for perverting your own religion.
Come now little goy, hell is a metaphor. Only a dolt takes the bible literally. The bible is one of the most sublime works of literature ever produced by man, unfortunately few understand its true meaning.
Because it tugged me out of the nihilism I fell into after discovering that the the Christian god is not a literally real entity. I introduced it to my husband and it's greatly improved his life as well. He was working as a wagecuck at a retailer, going to church to worship his dead god and cuck his soul every Sunday. Thelema gave him the confidence in himself to start his own business which has succeeded beyond his expectations.
You understand that it was in Hitlers greatest interest to claim to be a Christian because everything else would have been political suicide. Hitlers religious believes aren't clear but that in itself indicates that he was not a pure Christian.
The understanding of morality in Thelema is based in Nietzsche's works but of course, it is not purely Nietzsche otherwise why would a distinction be made? It's kind of funny that in Crowley's Gnostic Mass, he identifies Nietzsche as a saint of Thelema that could be invoked in such a ceremony. Nietzsche would have been livid. But Thelema is only about magickal rituals insofar as they assist personal alignment with the cosmos. Not all of us are mystics, though we are all practitioners of magick.
Thelema is many things for many people. Yeah, Crowley was a bigoted asshole, but this doesn't invalidate his teachings any more than Christ's compassion validated his in and of itself. It's also worth understanding that Crowley believed the patriarchy to be a consequence of the aeon of Osiris (preceded by the matriarchal aeon of Isis), and that aeon died in 1908. The new aeon will be one where masculinity and femininity find balance in humanity and the cosmos.
If you actually read the bible especially the relevant parts about jesus and his life you would know that his philosophie wasn't about hating each other based on religious believes but actually about the acceptance of all people. If you havent understood even that bit you should probably either read it to understand what your religion is all about or abandon your faith because you clearly have NO idea what you are talking about.
>"Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?' Then I will declare to them solemnly, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.'"
>still believing the hippie Jesus meme
>clearly you have no idea what you're talking about
It truly is though, if you read it from a biological and philosophical perspective, it can be seen as one of the most poetically written histories of humanity.
For example, part of the curse God places on Eve for eating the fruit of knowledge is painful birth for her and her daughters for all time. 'Knowledge' in evolution came from increased brain size, which then resulted in craniums too large for a woman to safely and painlessly pass. It resulted in what would be a premature birth in most species, an infant so completely and totally dependent on its mother that it required most of her attention for several years after its birth, while in most mammals an infant is much more independent at a much earlier stage of life.
So the bible correctly identifies that women bear the cost of the curse of knowledge. Whether it correctly identifies how they came to bear that cost correctly is up to the reader, of course.
I am not even shilling im just calling that retard out about the bullshit he is spouting. Im not even Christian but the guy i replied to apparently is neither. Also jesus talked about accepting ALL people not excluding anyone.
Thats exactly what im talking about people who actually believe that bullshit. The old testament is about some desert people who want to justify the terrible shit they where doing. The parts about Jesus Christ as a philosopher are the only important.
If you really want to separate Jesus from the rest of the faith and make him just a moral philosopher, that's fine, but there are plenty of better philosophers you could read. There's nothing inherently valuable about his moral teachings that I couldn't figure out on my own.
Of course. Jesus was only historically important and the theories behind his philosophie never truly worked out as seen by centuries of meaningless wars about religion. But the actual historical meaning of what he did is quite important. Obviously today the christian faith is no longer needed as a moral authority.
>tfw the internet is full of these faggots who believe in loose pagan religions
It's basically for people who KNOW a spiritual side exists but they don't want to deal with the laws and punishments real religion has
Of course there are laws and punishments, the law is do what thou wilt, the punishment for not following the law is misery, mediocrity and spiritual, intellectual and sometimes even physical enslavement.
This is the same in Christianity, except rather than 'do what thou wilt', the line is 'do what God wilt'. Hell is merely separation from the Christian god which leads to misery, while heaven is closeness to God which leads to bliss. These play out on a civilizational scale. Heaven and Hell are not literal, physical places, but rather metaphorical states of existence.
Bro I been there. I studied HARD, and long, and when it came down to it I could believe in divine providence and some form of creationism and an almighty omnipotent divinity, I could even buy that God came to earth in the form of a poor jewish rabbi at a good time in a shit province of the Roman Empire to experience life as one of his creations but everything that came after, everything that Christians put so much stock in like Paul's bullshit just struck me as wrong.
Would anyone be interested in an Christian /r9k/ Skype Group? We could worship on Sundays...Wednesdays, talk about anime, music, etc with Christian symbolism/themes, have some meaningful debate, play party/board games...
Just a thought. I'd be game.
What double standards you nigger
I don't care if women have had sex so long as they didn't go overboard
Women who've never had sex are either idiotically impressionable, overly anxious, or cold dried-up cuntz before their time
Or they're normal, get married too young because they're horny and it's expected, the spend the rest of their lives in a tolerable relationship
The whole thing is hellish
Never met a christfag who could really defend the whole shitshow beyond a knee-jerk "nuh-uh" or some half-baked argument thats been dated since the 50s
This is what modern Christfags have salvaged from a vast intellectual amd artistic tradition spanning millenia
Seriously, Christians today are degenerates who half-ass their faith and treat belief like any other middle-class hobby, dipping their toes in the water and avoiding any real material or time sacrifice because going to church has become another empty social club
You, I like you
I don't believe in god, but I have great respect for those that really do and act like it too.
Also Christ-chan a cute
Nice tripz but shit bantz desu senpai
You do realize that everyone knows you've run out of ideas when you use stock reddit insults, right?
Same, doesn't happen often but if I find someone who really commits to their faith I respect that. I hate blustery people who talk themselves up because they go to church once a week and pray before dinner, then buy into shit like "technical virginity" and live their lives almost exactly like the irreligious
