Blog Break 2


Most of you know my friend Cornell. He has a very interesting post [ Now this is what I call a perfect prayer] which he says he was taught a  decade or so ago which for all intents I think is a prayer of a person trying reverse psychology on god, whichever god it is is yours to decide.

Oh LORD, If I worship You for fear of Hell, burn me in Hell,

and if I worship You in hope of Paradise, exclude me from Paradise.

But if I worship You for Your Own sake,

grudge me not Your everlasting Beauty.

If you ask me, this prayer asks god to evaluate the sincerity in the prayer. Am feeling lazy and I know you my friends have more to say to my friend.

The second post is a meme, that those of you who spend time on Facebook must have seen. I will sample a few comments

Misty Troy Walling asks:  Atheist: how can you be against something you don’t believe in. I am so thankful for a merciful God!

No, we are not against god. We just lack a belief. Did you get that?

Tracy Roger Wilson  I always wonder why atheists troll FB sites that are clearly Christian based? Is it just to incite arguments ? If so, why?? Why do atheists want to condemn those who believe in God? They seem to spend alot of time thinking about something they don’t believe in. There’s no peace there!

Create your private internet. If it is in the public atheists will comment and you can comment on atheists sites as long as you can defend your ridiculous claims.

Kirk Cameron I am a recovering atheist. I’d still be an atheist today if it weren’t for God. He has been so kind to me. My old days of denying His existence based on not seeing Him was as foolish as the words from the second boy in this womb. Without a mom, he couldn’t even make the statement. Thank you Lord, for graciously opening my eyes of faith to see You…and loving me when I didn’t deserve it. Romans 5:8

Seriously, are you saying this to get many comments? Tell me what you understand by atheism? Why Christianity and their god among the many gods on offer?

Hey, brother, do you think?

    Prayer is like riding a rocking horse: it feels like you’re doing something but you’re not going anywhere.

      I think she is recovering from thinking rationally for I don’t know what else she could be recovering from! But then no society ever suffered because its populace was rational so to say one is a recovering atheist says a lot about such a person.
      Some apologists throw in the line they were atheists to give credibility to what they write but most times one sees these were people who really wanted to believe.

  3. Actually prayer is unique. There is nothing else like it. There is no other singular thing which dives so deeply into superstition and stupidity. Ask a Christian if they think Christians are persecuted? Do they think persecuted Christians around the world pray for their safety? What makes them think then that their own prayers will be answered?

    The definition of insanity is repeating the same action but expecting a different result. The definition of stupid is mimicking someone else’s insanity but thinking it will be different for you.
