Christianity is Depressing

Your page is so depressing. Your god is such a creep. I'm not trying to be offensive; I just don't know how you can believe in such evil. Jesus didn't suffer on the cross for me! I think the whole concept is utterly revolting. I am an atheist. I am not a sinner, I am not tainted or in need of being saved. I am a good person who believes in kindness, gentleness, and justice. My vision of the world is so much more beautiful than yours, because yours is so full of retribution and suffering. I hope you can let go of your evil, cruel god someday. Please respond to me if you can.

My response is in Green:

Thanks for signing my guestbook, even though you didn't leave your name or e-mail address. I find comments like yours to be depressing to be honest with you. You make statements that you don't bother to explain. Like "I just don't know how you can believe in such evil" What evil are you talking about, the evil in this world?? Believe me I saw enough of that first hand to believe in it. Or are you trying to say that Christianity is evil?? I have heard that before too, but no one was ever able to explain what they meant. Oh they tried. I have heard that the evil in this world is the result of Christian morals. Without the Christian morals the world would be a better place. Yeah, sure, but like I said no one can explain that one. I guess the highways would be safer without speed limits too, right? Or maybe health care would be better if the doctors did not have to follow any rules, why get a license, if a person wants to be a doctor well just start seeing patients. Do you see my point?

The real reason so many people label Christianity as evil is because they don't want to face up to the truth. What is the truth? Well it is pretty simple. God is a holy being and He demands death as punishment for sin. Since Adam and Eve sinned in the garden of Eden, we have all been born sinners. Just look at children, no one has to teach them to lie, or be selfish, or steal, ... It comes natural, what you have to teach them is not to do these things. Since we all sin, God demands death as our punishment. If that was the end of the story than He would be a cruel being, but it is not the end of the story. He loves us enough that He paid our debt Himself. He sent His Son (Jesus Christ - who is also God) to earth to die for our sins. So to get out of our death sentence all we have to do is believe in Jesus and ask Him to forgive us. Period, nothing else! But yet people still want to claim that God is an evil God full of hate, sorry that makes no sense at all.

You also went on to say that Jesus did not die for you. Well you are wrong, and in fact if you had been the only human being He would have still come and died for you. He will not force you to accept Him as your Savior, but He did die for you. You say you are a good person, so I will agree with you, but you are not without sin so you still come under the demand for punishment, just don't ever forget that all you have to do is ask Jesus to forgive you and He will. If all of us Chrisitan are just nuts, what have you got to lose? But what if we are right?? If we are right you have a lot to lose. Just a thought!!
