That brings up a good subject though. How many rabbis during Christ's time tried to be the messiah?
I think JP Holding (of Tektonics.org) mentioned that it was not as many as fundy Atheists like to purport. I'll try to find a reference...
Here's a video discussing the issue:

I won't worship the deadbeat father responsible for all the suffering in the world.

To stop suffering God have to take our whole freedom. From freedom suffering starts. It's the highest gift to man. We can decide if we want to be good, if we want to worship God or not. To stop suffering God have to enforce us to love him, to worship him, to do good things- to be like robots.

Good. Christianity does not need a ¨Christian¨ like you anyways.

indeed. Christianity needs no one. But we need it for our salvation.

Glad to see when the prodigal son comes back you won't be there with open arms.

well achronos, this is the difference between people and God. If one truly Repents, God is faithful to forgive us provided that we also do our part and forgive others. Some people however will keep hating to the end of eternity. That is forever and ever.

O rly?

Yeah, really.
And you come to this conclusion how?

Well, let us see. He says God is unfair. No, he goes beyond that and says he ¨hates¨ God. He says Satan is not such a bad guy. He says God is a ¨tyrant¨ He says he wishes he was the one who could have crucified God. He says God is a ¨monster¨

Yes I understand him perfect. He wants to move God to the side so he can go do whatever he wants. We are all...¨weak minded people and senile old folks¨ and he is  ¨more intelligent than 90% of people my age and many people older than me..¨ and blah, blah, blah.

So yeah. I have no trouble say we do not need Christians like him. I do not anyways.

Then its a good thing it doesn't matter at all what you "need" in the context of someone else's salvation.

Also saying what you've said can only serve to worsen James' state of mind. Anyone trying to drive someone who is already despairing and in pain away from Christianity is exactly the WORST thing you could be doing, its completely satanic.


maybe.

How old are you Green_Umbrella?
Not that old but old enough.
Old enough to have helped move a man dying of prostate cancer because his sheet was soiled in blood from bleeding of the anus and to hear him complaining of the pain. Old enough to know ¨God does not let me fornicate¨ to be a sad excuse for someone talking about their ¨suffering¨ and mocking God. I have never seen a dying person mock God. Never seen that. It is always someone self ¨enlightened¨ or someone who considers
themselves ¨smarter¨ than most. Always naive.
So, probably not old enough to vote. Not old enough to understand his own faith he professes to hold.
The funny thing is, if Christianity doesn't need anyone, it's someone with an attitude like you. Oh, snap. The irony.

What Christianity does not need is your weak, wishy-washy, feel good, sanitized religious attitude. It is pathetic. Truly pathetic.


your words are words of a very good and polite christian. This is why some people are avoiding christianity. They can't handle your politeness and holiness. Please be or pretend to be less polite, and a bit less holy, so you don't scare people away. We need them you know.

Forget it, I will just admit it. I cannot accept that challenge because deep down I still love and appreciate Him even when I do not understand Him and feel like I hate Him.

a struggle of love and hate. To my understanding that is what a living relationship is. Therefore perhaps you are closer to him, than anyone of us could ever be.
