I'm pretty sure each week, I get a +1 moral bonus on attack rolls and saves vs fear. Sadly, I think the duration expires by the time I get home...

Probably the priest has low level. But what one can expect when most spectacular feat of Jesus was resurrection which isn't even an epic spell Wink.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Jesus could be represented as a 9th-level Cleric who uses one of his top level spells once (Raise Dead). He did manage to pull of a rather impressive chaining of Create Food and Water, which can't really be done at any level outside of spamming a shit-ton of wands. It is a low enough level spell to do, if you have the funds. Every other spell he cast was 1st or 2nd level, so most of the time, he was indistinguishable from a 3rd-level cleric.

Oh, I forgot about the water walking. He pulled off a 3rd level spell doing that. So, he's basically a 9th level cleric with a disdain for violence (pity. Clerics fight better than fighters) who typically sandbags and acts like a 3rd-level cleric.

Good analysis, but word is that his father is GM so don't criticize guy too much. Otherwise you know, rock falls everybody dies.

But I do recognize that per the scriptures, you are not being led by a clean spirit since you are utterly unable to type Jesus Christ, let alone Jesus Christ is Lord. Prove me wrong. I've further said if you will type Jesus Christ is Lord rather than have a helper type for you I will leave TTA. I pray you will be saved, though, and I do have empathy for you, yes. In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind the spirits that hold you prisoner to sexual immorality, idolatry and pride. Praise Jesus now and be free, I pray!

Like you know anything about "why he gets what he gets", or are even capable of evaluating it.

So..... I get it. Even, knowing how meaningless and dishonest it would be, you would prefer I lie, and type that nonsense. I do get it. Fundamentalism is all about intellectual dishonesty, ignorance and that is preferable, over honesty, ...... and your god in incapable of telling the difference.

But all this is BESIDE the point. YOU said we are bitter and angry, and have not an ounce of evidence to support that. You lied. You made a self-righteous presumptuous statement which is untrue, because being prideful, and self-righteous,you NEED to feel superior morally, and make absurd judgments. And then you tell us WE are full of pride. LMAO. You have also done EXACTLY what your Jebus told you not to do. You have judged. You think you get to cherry-pick your scriptures to do what you like, cuz it feels good to play church-lady.

You have no clue about immorality, what that is in Moral Theology, or idolatry. You are SO stupid, and inept, and befuddled by your cult, that you actually think this crap is somehow conducive towards promoting your stupid religion. And you are so childish and superstitious, that you think the magical incantations have power, in themselves. " Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven". Big Grin

So... you won't type Jesus Christ is Lord, then? You PREFER I stick around to point out your nonsense?

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

RE: Why do theists come to this forum?
1. Jesus is not the original Greek or Aramaic pronunciation.

So Jesus is a bullshit name per Acts 4:12.

2. "The Q Continuum" blasphemes against the Holy Spirit, which is the only Unforgivable Sin .

So Q's soul will be annihilated per the scriptures.
