    The Gospel according to George

The "white throne" judgment is the Second Death, where you listen (not speak) as to why you are being cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity. Christians stand before Christ at the Bema Seat to receive or not receive rewards/crowns." Born again" Christians ARE NOT JUDGED for any sin. There are only two things that anyone will do when standing before God at their time of judgment beside "listen", those two things are...(1) they will bow their knee (2) they will confess with their mouth that Jesus is Lord, then they are cast into the Lake of Fire..end of story.

    When it comes to BS, big-time, major league bullsh^t, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullsh&t story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

    But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good BS story. Holy Sh&T!

    But I want you to know something, this is sincere, I want you to know, when it comes to believing in God, I really tried. I really, really tried. I tried to believe that there is a God, who created each of us in His own image and likeness, loves us very much, and keeps a close eye on things. I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize, something is F'd up.

    Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed. Results like these do not belong on the résumé of a Supreme Being. This is the kind of sh&t you'd expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. And just between you and me, in any decently-run universe, this guy would've been out on his all-powerful ass a long time ago. And by the way, I say "this guy", because I firmly believe, looking at these results, that if there is a God, it has to be a man.

    No woman could or would ever f things up like this. So, if there is a God, I think most reasonable people might agree that he's at least incompetent, and maybe, just maybe, doesn't give a sh%t. Doesn't give a sh&t, which I admire in a person, and which would explain a lot of these bad results.

    So rather than be just another mindless religious robot, mindlessly and aimlessly and blindly believing that all of this is in the hands of some spooky incompetent father figure who doesn't give a sh^t, I decided to look around for something else to worship. Something I could really count on.

    And immediately, I thought of the sun. Happened like that. Overnight I became a sun-worshipper. Well, not overnight, you can't see the sun at night. But first thing the next morning, I became a sun-worshipper. Several reasons. First of all, I can see the sun, okay? Unlike some other gods I could mention, I can actually see the sun. I'm big on that. If I can see something, I don't know, it kind of helps the credibility along, you know? So everyday I can see the sun, as it gives me everything I need; heat, light, food, flowers in the park, reflections on the lake, an occasional skin cancer, but hey. At least there are no crucifixions, and we're not setting people on fire simply because they don't agree with us.

    Sun worship is fairly simple. There's no mystery, no miracles, no pageantry, no one asks for money, there are no songs to learn, and we don't have a special building where we all gather once a week to compare clothing. And the best thing about the sun, it never tells me I'm unworthy. Doesn't tell me I'm a bad person who needs to be saved. Hasn't said an unkind word. Treats me fine. So, I worship the sun. But, I don't pray to the sun. Know why? I wouldn't presume on our friendship. It's not polite.

    I've often thought people treat God rather rudely, don't you? Asking trillions and trillions of prayers every day. Asking and pleading and begging for favors. Do this, gimme that, I need a new car, I want a better job. And most of this praying takes place on Sunday His day off. It's not nice. And it's no way to treat a friend.

    But people do pray, and they pray for a lot of different things, you know, your sister needs an operation on her crotch, your brother was arrested for defecating in a mall. But most of all, you'd really like to f that hot little redhead down at the convenience store. You know, the one with the eyepatch and the clubfoot? Can you pray for that? I think you'd have to. And I say, fine. Pray for anything you want. Pray for anything, but what about the Divine Plan?

    Remember that? The Divine Plan. Long time ago, God made a Divine Plan. Gave it a lot of thought, decided it was a good plan, put it into practice. And for billions and billions of years, the Divine Plan has been doing just fine. Now, you come along, and pray for something. Well suppose the thing you want isn't in God's Divine Plan? What do you want Him to do? Change His plan? Just for you? Doesn't it seem a little arrogant? It's a Divine Plan. What's the use of being God if every run-down shmuck with a two-dollar prayerbook can come along and f up Your Plan?

    And here's something else, another problem you might have: Suppose your prayers aren't answered. What do you say? "Well, it's God's will." "Thy Will Be Done." Fine, but if it's God's will, and He's going to do what He wants to anyway, why the f bother praying in the first place? Seems like a big waste of time to me! Couldn't you just skip the praying part and go right to His Will? It's all very confusing.

    So to get around a lot of this, I decided to worship the sun. But, as I said, I don't pray to the sun. You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci. Two reasons: First of all, I think he's a good actor, okay? To me, that counts. Second, he looks like a guy who can get things done. Joe Pesci doesn't f around. In fact, Joe Pesci came through on a couple of things that God was having trouble with.

    For years I asked God to do something about my noisy neighbor with the barking dog, Joe Pesci straightened that cs out with one visit. It's amazing what you can accomplish with a simple baseball bat.

    So I've been praying to Joe for about a year now. And I noticed something. I noticed that all the prayers I used to offer to God, and all the prayers I now offer to Joe Pesci, are being answered at about the same 50% rate. Half the time I get what I want, half the time I don't. Same as God, 50-50. Same as the four-leaf clover and the horseshoe, the wishing well and the rabbit's foot, same as the Mojo Man, same as the Voodoo Lady who tells you your fortune by squeezing the goat's testicles, it's all the same: 50-50. So just pick your superstition, sit back, make a wish, and enjoy yourself.

    And for those of you who look to The Bible for moral lessons and literary qualities, I might suggest a couple of other stories for you. You might want to look at the Three Little Pigs, that's a good one. Has a nice happy ending, I'm sure you'll like that. Then there's Little Red Riding Hood, although it does have that X-rated part where the Big Bad Wolf actually eats the grandmother. Which I didn't care for, by the way. And finally, I've always drawn a great deal of moral comfort from Humpty Dumpty. The part I like the best? "All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again." That's because there is no Humpty Dumpty, and there is no God. None, not one, no God, never was.

    In fact, I'm gonna put it this way. If there is a God, may he strike this audience dead! See? Nothing happened. Nothing happened? Everybody's okay? All right, tell you what, I'll raise the stakes a little bit. If there is a God, may he strike me dead. See? Nothing happened, oh, wait, I've got a little cramp in my leg. And my ba hurt. Plus, I'm blind. I'm blind, oh, now I'm okay again, must have been Joe Pesci, huh? God Bless Joe Pesci. Thank you all very much. Joe Bless You!

  3. What Charles is not conveying is the nature of the relationship originally proposed under Federalism with the states is the express denial of giving the Feds the authority to rule over religious matters that were left to the states. Wallbuilders has an excellent article on this exact issue. I am sure we will continue to see selective examples of how godless the Feds were, but he is not painting the entire picture. Today, with the Feds so entrenched in every aspect of our life, it is very hard to see how the constitution was originally a constraint against the Feds to leave the most important decisions up to the states. It is now completely upside down from where it began.

    A Godless Constitution?: A Response to Kramnick and Moore

    The U. S. Constitution's lack of a Christian designation had little to do with a radical secular agenda. Indeed, it had little to do with religion at all. The Constitution was silent on the subject of God and religion because there was a consensus that, despite the framer's personal beliefs, religion was a matter best left to the individual citizens and their respective state governments (and most states in the founding era retained some form of religious establishment). The Constitution, in short, can be fairly characterized as "godless" or secular only insofar as it deferred to the states on all matters regarding religion and devotion to God.

    Relationships between religion and civil government were defined in most state constitutions, and the framers believed it would be inappropriate for the federal government to encroach upon or usurp state jurisdiction in this area. State and local governments, not the federal regime, it must be emphasized, were the basic and vital political units of the day. Thus, it was fitting that the people expressed religious preferences and affiliations through state and local charters.

    Nope. Most states did not have a government established religion.

    Nope. It was Godless because it excluded religion from the authority of the the U. S. Government.

    Relationships between religion and civil government were defined in most state constitutions
    True. Most of the State Constitutions defined the relationship as one where religion was separated from the authority of the state government.

    It was fitting that the people expressed religious preferences and affiliations through state and local charters.
    Nope. In most of the states it was not deemed proper for the government to unite with religion.

    At the time the Constitution was made, there was an ongoing battle over the separation of religion from government. The faction favoring separation was winning, but there was still a significant amount of civil authority over religion that needed to be uprooted and obliterated.

    Old habits die hard and in some instances the political battle was fierce and engendered much bitterness. As the Republic aged, the faction favoring separation gained more favor with the people while the other camp lost support.

    During the first 26 years of the Republic, the first four chief magistrates issued a total of 8 religious recommendation proclamations. In five of those cases the President was pressured by Congress to issue a recommendation.

    However, by the time James Monroe became President in 1817, the faction favoring separation was such a majority that none of the next eleven Presidents (a period of 44 years) dared to infringe on the rights of conscience with a foolish impious executive religious recommendation.

    Judges 1:5 And they found Adonibezek in Bezek: and they fought against him, and they slew the Canaanites and the Perizzites.

    6 But Adonibezek fled; and they pursued after him, and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and his great toes.

    7 And Adonibezek said, Threescore and ten kings, having their thumbs and their great toes cut off, gathered [their meat] under my table: as I have done, so God hath requited me. And they brought him to Jerusalem, and there he died.


    Lastly, you continue to confuse forcing people under physical torment wrongly to that of a Godly Christian who preaches the gospel adn never compells by physical force. Of all people in the last two thousand years, beside the Jews, it is the born again Christian who has been most maligned. Your understanding of my faith is really pitiful my friend and your sense of humor is nothing more than blasphemy.

    You are free to choose as you have chosen, but there will be a time of judgement for all people ever created even if you wish to hide your head in the sand and pretend that is not so. That is a fact that none of us shall avoid. It is better to spend your time on earth redeeming the time than to falsely accuse God of being unrighteous. That is my opinion, you are certainly free to form your own opinions and act accordingly.

    As far as your interpretation of the 144000 virgins, you are once again in gross error. The 144000 witnesses are his faithful Jewish Martyrs that will spread the gospel during the tribulation so that a multitude will be saved. You really should have payed more attention while in the Christian church. You are quite ignorant of very basic Christian concepts. What were you doing all the time you were in church my friend? You certainly didn't take heed to any of the doctrines of Christianity since you have such a poor understanding.

    Nevertheless, good luck to you and the life you choose to follow.
    Wow, did I strike a nerve with this? You seem a bit frustrated. I mean all I did was quote some scriptures from the SAME book that you have been quoting from. And the scriptures that I'm quoting is some pretty dark ****. So how can you, as an upstanding bible thumping christian, only use the parts of the bible that YOU want to use and just ignore the other parts that you dont like?

    Are you really going to try and use the eye for an eye defense? Do you really think that slaughter women, and children, or raping them, is what a kind and loving god would want? I'll quote it again, just in case you forgot "Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword. Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished." (Isaiah 13:15-16)

    And I'm sure you keep this in mind when dealing with your wife and other women "Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church." (I Corinthians 14:34-35) Nothing like following gods will, and to keep women in their place.

    This whole bible thing is sounding more and more like it was written by some power hungery man, doesn't it? Just one more tool used to control people.

    Not frustrated at all my friend, I have been more than patient with your rantings.

    Once again, you should have payed more attention while in church. You are once again in gross error since this is a prophecy of what another nation will do to Babylon for the sins that Babylon did to its enemies. Yes, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. You didn't read what I wrote to Iceman, he used this same verse.

    As I said to Iceman, good luck.

    I do believe I payed enought attention in church, thats how I saw all of the hipocracy that was being spouted off. The bible is riddled with all kinds of hell and damnation scriptures. Just because you (and most all other christians) pick and choose which scriptures to read and ignore the rest, doesnt mean they aren't there. You cant just take the recruitment passages of love and hope, and forget about all the other passages, of rape, plunder, beat your wife, murder, all because god said so.

    Actually I kind of like the one that says "A fool hath said in his heart there is no God".
    By faith Noah,being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear,prepared an ark to the saving of his house;by the which he condemned the world,and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith Heb.11:7

    Here's more proof the U. S. was never a Christian Nation. This 1810 law actually required a violation of one of the Ten Commandments.

    April 30, 1810

    An Act Regulating the Post-Office Establishment

    Section 9. And be it further enacted, That every postmaster shall keep an office in which one or more persons shall attend on every day on which a mail, or bag, or other packet, or parcel of letters shall arrive by land or water, as well as on other days, at such hours as the Postmaster-General shall direct, for the purpose of performing the duties thereof; and it shall be the duty of the postmaster at all reasonable hours, on every day of the week, to deliver, on demand, any letter, paper, or packet, to the person entitled to or authorized to receive the same.
