Tom Luth - [MEME] "You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do." ~Anne Lamott
This does seem to be the cornerstone of modern religion.
Tom Luth - Look at the people that everyone points to as the perfect Christians. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Alex Jones, Donald Trump, Mike Pence... If they truly do represent Christianity accurately, then it is best I avoid it.
Muhammad Rasheed - Tom wrote: "Look at the people that everyone points to as the perfect Christians."
lol There's a whole lot to unpack in that one sentence.
Who was this "everyone" and who determined that their opinions were the ones worthy of solicitation on the matter?
Tom Luth - Anytime a faux-"Christian" is featured on the news, etc., it is one of these far-right Nazis proclaiming their Christian values.
Tom Luth - This is si9milar to the teachings in my Baptist church in the 70s, and why I left. They sited Nixon, Lt Calley and Reagan as examples of fine Christians while condemning Jimmy Carter as a pawn of Satan. They promoted racism and hate, and it did not feel like the values I wanted to be associated with.
Muhammad Rasheed - We've discussed this before. The first thing we do is to go to the source texts and see what God said about the matter, and then audit the claims of those who presume to speak/act in God's Name.
It's not smart to throw the baby out with the bathwater because we found foolish babies woefully failing to live up to the ideals of the faith they claim to subscribe to.
Currently, I'm arguing with an Indian Muslim who is weirdly under the impression that the infamously wretched caste system his ethnic group performs is somehow "Islamic" for no other reason than because his group subscribes to Islam while they practice it. Humans are not representative of the faith — the source texts are the faith. Humans, as usual, do nothing but beckon one another to hellfire.
Tom Luth - However, people are seriously divided on the meanings of the source texts, hence Christianity being subdivided into over 3,000 denominations, each with a different interpretation.
