Quote# 33963

[To an ex-Christian]

You probably were not saved in the first place. You are a victim of the easy" believism" of our day.

If you had fruit and if you were a child of God, then you would have remained in the faith. But the fact that you fell away shows that you are not a child of God, but are a child of the evil one.

I can't put it any better than one of the contributors on the IIDB board - "The brown acid is bad, Bible John".

I'm sorry but "believism". Does adding the suffix ism to any normal word suddenly make it a religion?

There is no one that fundies hate as viciously as someone who has escaped what still holds them in slavery. It doesn't take a huge logical leap to figure out that, from their point of view, since these people are subhuman, cruelty and death are not only permitted but laudable.

... so a falter in faith is a sign that people are a child of the evil one....

......... does that mean God's own prophet Jonah was a son of Satan?

Don't you fundy fucktards promulgate the belief that one needs only to believe, and are magically saved by grace? If so, then Bible John is a heretic and hell-bound.

"If you had fruit"

Yeah, I was gonna be a Christian, but I didn't eat enough oranges...

Indeedy-doody! I'm into Wineism myself - the Red denomination especially. I also choose to combine it at times with Brieism and Watercrackerism, which makes for an extremely enlightening evening.

Wineism is a very special ism, unlike Watercrackerism. Once you're a true Wineist you can't go back. If you decide you no longer wish to be a Wineist then you obviously weren't a true Wineist in the first place.

Oh dear sister Heather. I myself are a Red Wineist, although in the past I have strayed to the White denomination. I reconverted to Red, but it is something I struggle with to this day.

You goddamned traitor. Brieism and Watercrackerism are for liberal splitters -- the losers who are too weak for even a plate of tapas. You need to embrace the garlickist, the seafoodist, the slabs-of-beef-and-lambist, and the big-piles-of-pastaist ways.

Funny how fundies use Calvinistic beliefs like "Once saved, Always saved".

What color is your kilt laddie?

What happens if a child of the evil one has fruit?

A friend of mine had a tuxedo made in Campbell plaid. The vest was Glen plaid. I suggested when he put it on he became Glenn Campbell.
It was nae worth a Hoot Mon!

"[To an ex-Christian]

You probably were not saved in the first place. You are a victim of the easy" believism" of our day."

So, let me see if I get this right...this guy got saved...at least he (and every other like-minded person) THOUGHT he was saved because he believed and he got baptised by dunking and was therefore saved. But he really WASN'T saved, just everybody (including him) thought so. And the way everybody found out he wasn't saved is that he stopped believing in the mumbo-jumbo.

So, what does that mean for the gazillion fundies who presently believe themselves to be saved? Are they really? or do they just THINK they are...but may find out later that they are not? Or do you get un-saved when reason asserts itself in the brain?

And how do you tell the saved from the pseudo-saved?
