Week 1:Funny things you heard about all week
Religion is like a penis...

Some people have one and that's fine.

If you have got one, it's OK to be proud of it.

But you shouldn't take it out in public and wave it in people's faces.

And the worst thing you can do with it is shove it down a child's throat!

RE: Week 1:Funny things you heard about all week
I saw a local church's road sign read:

"Forgiveness isn't forgiveness if it's for sale."

Not sure what it's supposed to refer to specifically, but I find it funny to be outside a Christian church. Isn't it their belief that their forgiveness was BOUGHT by the blood of a slain Jesus?

The catholic church also used to allow you to buy passage for your loved from purgatory into heaven...and they used to pre-sell forgiveness...ergo you could buy forgiveness before you needed it!

Jesus didn't buy it for himself because he didn't need to be forgiven. It is free to those who need it and are willing to receive it.

God's invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.
Romans 1:20 ESV

He still had to buy it for someone, didn't he? Yahweh was incapable of just forgiving us?

If it wasn't bought, then all the pastors and preachers and priests and teachers should stop using the phrases "bought" and "paid for" when referring to the act of Jesus' "sacrifice."

I still don't understand the logic about sending yourself as a sacrifice to yourself for original sin that you created. Much less the whole 'Jesus PAID for your sins' line.

Jesus died for a weekend, how is that a sacrifice? That's just pathetic. I would be willing to go to hell for eternity to save a dozen people from the same fate, but people worship Jesus...
