Quote# 46237

Jesus teaches in Matthew 18:3 that in order to enter the kingdom of heaven, we must come as a child. Without child-like faith we cannot experience the Kingdom. Children naturally trust and believe easily unless they have been hurt or abused. It is tragic to find a fearful, non-trusting, and suspicious child. These are symptoms of emotional damage.

This......This is just too easy.

What about when I was around...12? Is that young enough?

Children believe all sorts of things; the boogeyman in the closet, the monster under the bed, the tooth fairy and santa. Then they grow up, come to their senses and start worshipping a 2000 year old carpenter...


(Yeah, I was partly inspired by a Bart Simpson quote there.)

So you admit that the goal of your religion is to keep everyone stupid?

Just like the apple shit in the Garden of Eden: "get smart and I'll fucketh you over", sayeth the lard.

I agree, that when grown, mature, rational humans revert to a child's mindset regarding the world and their place in it, it is symptomatic of "emotional" damage. Emotional damage results in mental illness. You should seek professional help, really.

I wondered where priests got their ideas.

Why is this fundie? They have an odd belief, but this person doesn't seem likely from this statement to hurt anyone or force it on them. You know there are people with odd beliefs that are nice people, right?

Want to have some fun? Take your child-like faith into a longshoreman's bar in Hoboken and shout, "I can lick any man in the place."

Which is why abortion is good. It gets babies into heaven faster.

The mark of a true Christian is to quote only one verse whilst ignoring the other 30+ verses that contradict.
These are symptoms of brainwashed delusion.

In the meantime Dele can Genesis 24:2 himself.
