Quote# 43809

One of my favorite former students is peaceful, calm and generous. He started a chapter of Food, Not Bombs in this area as a high school sophomore. He is an amazing young man. Unfortunately, he is on my prayer list as one of the lost. His girlfriend was Wiccan (still is, but no longer his girlfriend), and he began to listen to her anti-Christian propaganda. I fear for his soul. I pray for him a lot.

He says he used to be a strong believer, and it's not that he doesn't believe in Jesus, he just wants to be tolerant. I'm terrified he won't be in the Rapture. I'm praying the Holy Spirit will bring him to God.

Let's see, despite being romantically involved with a Wiccan, this young man still believes in Jesus, is trying to be more tolerant and open towards others, has a pleasant personality, and is working to bring relief to those who need it.

BA here is afraid that because he does not dogmatically accept the same beliefs s/he does, the student is a lost cause.

Who's more like Jesus in this case?

Pedantic Twit

BA is.

Awww iddums boo, one of your brainwashed woke up and you don't like it. He and she are both kind decent people. Wicca is not Anti-Christian.

BTW, according to your own doctrine, being self righteous is a major no no.

7/29/2008 12:49:14 PM


Why worry, BA? If he's not good enough for God based on his actions in life, and not good enough simply because he failed to profess blind faith in one strict and specific doctrine, then why worry? If he's not good enough for God, then he shouldn't be good enough for you to worry about either.

(Or are we hearing a little voice in the back of your head protesting that God isn't fair? Nah, couldn't be, you're on RR...)

Since when is Wicca an anti-Christian religion? I always thought it was about being in touch with nature. Unless nature is anti-Christian you're a fucking retard.

...Because God just hates people who do unto others and love their neighbours.

To you, that says a lot about the former student's eternal destiny. To me, it says a lot about your religion's plan of salvation.

So according to you, only assholes get raptured. Because he is kind and generous and respectful of others' beliefs, God is going to reject him? You don't see anything wrong with this "theology"? By the way, who the hell are you to make any kind of decision about who is "lost"? It sounds like this "lost student" is actually living out his beliefs instead of hiding behind a computer making judgements about the state of everyone else's soul.

7/29/2008 1:03:15 PM


Onoez! A decent person! Quick make him a True Christian so he can be a dick like the rest of us!

7/29/2008 1:05:44 PM


It scares me that this man (woman?) is a teacher.

7/29/2008 1:07:31 PM


Sounds like a good kid.

No problems here. Leave him alone. He's doing fine without you.

7/29/2008 1:08:16 PM


So somebody who's no longer dating a Wiccan, and just wants to be nice to people, is gonna burn?

@Jay-Sus: Of course Wicca is anti-Christian. It doesn't involve condemning people and feeling self-righteous. As for nature, God put us here to exploit everything and we don't have to worry about driving our SUVs half a mile to church because Jebus is going to come back before we screw the place up too badly; thus worrying about the environment demonstrates a lack of faith! See how it all makes sense when you stand everything on its head?

Because the creator of everything will listen to ONE little nutcase.

7/29/2008 1:21:42 PM



*not entirely sure I used the colons right*

7/29/2008 1:25:28 PM


"he just wants to be tolerant."

OH THE HUMANITY (no, really)

7/29/2008 1:37:21 PM

So you believe that God will punish good people who just don't buy the bullshit with the exact same eternity as the likes of Hitler and Stalin.
Yep, sounds like a loving God to me.

7/29/2008 1:37:38 PM


1. He starts a charity
2. He has non-Christian friends
3. He is open-minded
4. He is still a Christian

Oh yeah, Jesus would just hate this guy.

7/29/2008 1:54:47 PM

He believes in Jesus...but he's too tolerant so he's probably going to hell. That makes sense. Thank you Rapture Ready.

7/29/2008 1:59:14 PM

That patronizing, righteous "Oh, I'm so sensitive and caring because I weep for those who aren't going to be saved" drives me bananas.

7/29/2008 1:59:20 PM

Mister Spak

I'm praying you'll follow the wiccan rede. But being a christian you probably won't.

7/29/2008 2:14:29 PM

The Jamo

Oh no! Anything but this "thinking for yourself" business!!!

7/29/2008 2:15:28 PM


I'm terrified he won't be in the Rapture.

Blessed, I have some really really bad news for you - you won't be in the Rapture either.

7/29/2008 2:16:52 PM

I am sorry but isn't this a contradiction?

7/29/2008 2:26:47 PM

David B.

You know, BA, if you back him into a corner and witness to him as forcefully as you can for an hour or so, them attempt to exorcise him in Jesus' name, maybe the devil will leave him and he'll return to the true path!

He only needs to see how a "true Christian" such as youself behaves, and he'll make the right choice, I assure you.

(If I'm a bit less than usually tolerant of f***wads today, it's because of the Knoxville shooting.)
