I'm back!! I know you missed me. After looking over some of the religious topics and reading some of the response I come up with a character from some of the people who frequent this place. Please to enjoy
Mark Knowles is the Jim Jones of the Religious forum who job is to lead as many people away from God as possible so they will follow him.
Sandra, Misha, Earnesthub, Sanctus Vesania, frogdropping, usmanali81 and others I'm sure are followers of Jim Jones.
Lady Guinevere is the Joseph Smith and Typhoid Mary of the Religious forum. She been visited by an angel of light(satan) and thinks she know best, but doesn't know or seem to care how sick(in the head) she really is.
There are a lot of filler New Age hippies like Jewels and co Inspirepub, and chukra G(who scares me)
I'm not religous, but I do appreciate some of the true Christians who are trying to reach out to me, maybe one day Jesus will find me because right now I'm feeling pretty lost, but until then I'd like to thank some of the hubbers which I feel are really working for God. Everyday Miracles, fierycj, mohitmisra, spiderpam, Vladimir Uhri, James A Watkins and enderw1ggins. Please continue with God's work.
Do you really know why religious atheists are always mad and rude? (But I love them, I was once in the same boat). In the Marx-istic schools taught them that evolution is fact and not theory. Now they could not get over with. There is not at all proof there is no God. :-).
I'm not that good. Trust me. But I love God like a madman. And it sure as hell will take a lot of more than a couple of atheists yapping in a pc forum to convince me otherwise. I've seen things a lot of people here wouldn't believe. If you've seen the kinda weird things I've seen, it'll be pretty difficult not to believe in God, trust me. Hey, I suppose this isn't really your screenname. I know you're an active hubber in here. But I cant put a finger on who you are. Well, thanks, I guess.
While I am not at all interested in becoming a "character," I will offer to pray for you! Feeling "pretty lost" can certainly describe how a lot of people are feeling right now; know you aren't alone and a loving, patient Creator sees you as "fearfully and wonderfully made" and able to possess hope and a future!
What does it matter who he is?....He has a right to post. He is not offensive, or rude. He just called a spade "a spade". Actually it is even significant that his observations hit a sore spot of some individuals. I personally feel the same way as he put it into the words. I am not a Christian, I am not religious at all. I quit posting on forums for some reasons. Sometimes (very seldom) I scroll the posts, sigh... (sigh, sigh...) and go back to real life. Here I actually enjoyed his summary. Whatever one can say, one cannot deny this guy powers of observation. OK, back to reading a book on a porch....
And actually, I agree with RueVera... There is a fine line (well, at least for some to see, I guess) between satire and rudeness/trolling (that we've all witnessed elsewhere). Satire is something of a well-known written form...and this gay guy has some points, did it with humor and has a right to express himself....
Yeah, who knows? The satire was a bit broad-brushed.
I personally just keep thinking that I doubt God cares that particularly about all the semantics floating around specifically in Hubpages...I just kind think he/she probably may be bigger than atheists or other kinds of our distinctions.
Your hubs are interesting. Seems like you've really studied.
That is what I took it for, FOJJ or friend of a religious nut responsible for the horrible deaths of so many. Hardly the sort of profile to give to a gentleman like Mark, who is measured in his responses, depending on the type of insult he is suffering from loaded religionist questions.
Final Thought- I started this so the people in the particular forum can see what that really look like, an internet mirror persay. I'm undergoing a life altering change for the better in my heart, and I had the thank those who made take a look at my life and ask, Are you really happy? Do you know what will happen when you die? Do you know Jesus? Can I pray for you? I've never had anyone do that for me. I had no dad, horrible relationships, depression confusion and I found "comfort" in hands people who told me it's all BS, Don't fall the Christian bull. There is no God, Do you whatever you want. I guess I was an athiest, or agnostic, but I started to ask questions and I'm finding out that I was wrong way wrong and found out if you're dumb enough to believe there is nothing you're dumb enough to be ignored and mocked. So I decided to stop being dumb and stop my self destructive lifestyle and start thinking for myself. It's pretty amazing. If I called you out in a negative light, I stand by it, I used humor to soften the blow, but It's the truth. This place isn't a place where I log on everyday and debate with people, but I'll make time to once a month to make an honest observation with a slice of humor.
That's cute...yep, funny. One thing you have to ask yourself is whether many (most) aren't already aware of mirrors and other kinds of um, visual representations, (1) one. Another thing to ask is whether you really are seeing things clearly or, lol, in a Jim Jones dogmatic way (2) two, being aware that Mark Knowles (Mr. JJ), fyi, has rather a multitude of friends (and fans) who love debating him. Therefore it must not be all bad, what he does--and also says something about the Christians who need this kind of 'fight.' Maybe not a bad thing--but maybe along the lines of giving them a purpose? (good & bad, dark & light, Christian & atheist) And so what? That's OK, too.
Interesting that character studies of performances go both ways. You're silly, I give you that. (...and don't you love words that can cut more ways than just one?)
If anyone is caught thinking for themselves, thou shalt drag them to the middle of your camp, and thou shalt ridicule them, and thou shalt send them away from thy camp until they conform to thy ways. Thus sayeth the Lord!
When I need a mirror for who or what I am, I will ask for one. And from someone that knows me a little better than anyone on an internet forum does.
Further - I'm neither dumb, self-destructive nor in need of counsel. And when I wish to divulge my personal beliefs on life, the universe and everything, I'll make sure that all that need to know do so.
Last point - spare the humour when delivering a criticism. Say what you mean or don't bother saying it at all.
Perhaps you are an exception. I have very good friend an atheists and he is good man. Never angry or rude. But I know more atheists I mean those who have religious component in them. Still I love them since love never fails. You know religion is not right. One can be believer without being religious. Going back to person. He is special one. He is on right course. He does not know that someone is praying for him. BTW an evolution is not fact.
Thanks to some great feedback from Hubpages members, this category is now open. Due to the personal nature of the topic, I'd like to bring some points to your attention while this section is still new:As with the...
Have you noticed that any discussion that has to do with Christianity is always used by the antagonists, who never seem satisfied with the Christian blood they suck in these forums, to divert the purpose of the original...
I would wipe off especially the religion topic as I hate religion big time and wish it never existed.I would abolish the 3day ban rule and opt for just deleting personal attack comments.I would chose to pay members who...
Its just like the topic says. I'm kind of a rookie in this whole Hub thing. So far, I like the Religion forum, but there's a lot of people you just wanna smack in the head. If you're non-religious, then what in the hell...
There has been a disturbing trend of late for Hubbers to create new forum topics, and publish new Hubs, which have nothing at all to do with religion.I propose that we urge Hubpages to finally ban all non-religious...
There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent...
