Why are you so concerned about what people think about you? When this life ends we will all stand before God to be judged. His opinion is the only one that counts.

Probably because, like many believers, he seeks the comfort of agreement to assuage his own inner doubts.

In Heaven they love me so much that I've accumulated a total of 666 positive rep. Evil_monster

That's quite cool. But I think I'd be happier with 69.

Where are we going and why am I in this hand basket?

I'm still not clear what the suggestion for the forum is, here. Surely it can't be that people aren't allowed to write things along with rep, or give negative rep, that the person doesn't personally approve of?

People have a real reputation here, regardless. We all form opinions of each other. The rep system is just a little documentation of a few of those opinions. Anyone stupid enough to base their entire opinion of someone solely on other peoples' opinions, without bothering to read anything they actually write, is not a person worth worrying about.

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

I thought the gospels say that will happen when Jesus returns, not "when life ends". So now Theo thinks he knows more than his gospels.

Rep points to me fall into the category of "hmm, that's interesting." Actual opinions of the person comes from a few weeks of reading posts and interacting.

There will be a judgment when Jesus returns but most people will die before then.

It is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment.

Ha! Complete misinterpretation.

That is referring to the judgmental belittling that goes on in muttered whispers at your funeral.

Which supernatural god would that be?

Pick one from the list below:

Sorry, there are no supernatural gods on the list because, well, no supernatural gods ever existed.
