Maybe you should ask why he or she feels as if they've been abandoned by God, and then attempt to help them work through it instead of simply rebuking them for feeling lost and alone.

I'm amazed at the utter callousness fundies will resort to to keep their delusions alive. He'd be the type to go a hospital and chastise the cancer patients for not being faithful enough to god. Either that or tell them that their suffering is a virtue. What an asshole.
What's worse is that any time someone objects to what he's saying, he assumes the persons problem is with God not him. Well according to him, God puts people on earth, demands that they deny everything on earth, supress all their urges, live a life of unbearable suffering, and yet he still shows no signs of existance when that could be all they'd need to be faithful servents. Then when someone fails god's sadistic test and can't endure anymore, he punishes them for eternity. Yeah, I'd say God has some splainin' to do.

This is interesting.
Looks like someone doesn't comprehend the nature of the word "covenant".
Remember that deal God supposedly made with the Jews? They listen to his rules and he protects them? The agreement was two sided. Which is why, of course, when things buggered up the Jews (well, priests and whoever wrote those books) blamed themselves for not living up to the covenant.
Feeling abandoned by God is quite a legitimate concern. For those who believe that God is their protector (which was the traditional role given to him).
The idea of everyone being a slave to God is, well, usually found in the crazy fundies. Oh. Wait.

The person who is contemplating suicide is pretty much a whiny fundie bigot, too.
However, the truly icky part of this site is that Ralph is a former police officer, who has delusions of being God's little helper and is freely dispensing medical advice.

Yes I am blunt
Well, you're certainly not sharp, that's for sure.
In fact, I think "dense" is more accurate than "blunt".
Btw, thank you for your Christian love. Have you ever heard the phrase ubi caritas et amor deus ibi est? No, you're probably not very educated, but you might know it as "wherever there is love and caring, there is God". No?
Oh yes, excuse me. All you know is "vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord". Fire, brimstone, Hell, retribution, fear, suffering. That's your christianity.
Let me quote you to yourself: "quit calling yourself a Christian so that you don't harm souls."

Have you eaten today? If so then thank God for it.
Why? People eat whether they thank God or not. They starve whether they thank God or not, too. Whatever God does, assuming He even exists, doesn't appear to have anything to do with what you do. There's absolutely no indication that you can get God to do something by thanking Him or praying to Him or going to church or "accepting Jesus in your heart" or bowing toward Mecca and chanting in Arabic or wearing a yarmulke and eating chicken and cheesecake with two different forks. In other words, God either doesn't exist or is irrelevant to us because we have no effect on Him.

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
Ralph obviously thinks Jesus was a liberal wimp.

Hi ralph, I was a devout bible-thumping super-Christian up until I read this piece of shit that you wrote. I have now left the faith and no longer believe in your joke of a god. So have a whole bunch of other people.
Happy Easter, asshole.
4/8/2012 2:51:38 PM
If I have eaten today, it is because I ate food I bought from my hard work. The same goes for the roof over my head and the clothes on my back. Your god has provided fuck all so why thank his non-existent ass?
You, sir, are one brainwashed idiot.

Luke 1,53: he has filled the hungry with good things, and the rich he has sent away empty.
Thank you Jesus.
Oh, Jesus, when you get some time off from helping Tebow score touchdowns and blessing 3800 calorie meals at McDonald's for fat Americans, please go back up to heaven and tell Luke to go fuck himself.

You owe Him everything and He owes you nothing, not even the next breath.
You know, this always bugs me about conservative Christians. Here is a thought experiment intended to refute this proposition via reductio ad absurdum. Imagine that the conservative Christian, for whatever reason, created a robot just as intelligent and self-aware as any human being. Does the Christian think that he would have the right to treat said artificial intelligence like a slave, demand that the robot show him absolute obedience, or even deactivate said robot if he felt like it? After all, he created the robot. If you would not allow humans to commit such behavior, then it makes no sense to let God do it. After all, calling God good is meaningless if he can do anything he wants without being condemned for actions a human would commit. If God is omnibenevolent, then he wouldn't act like a barbaric Bronze Age warlord. Why is it so difficult for fundamentalists to understand this?

Wow, I just checked out that site. Frightening. He has tons of suicidal, desperate people emailing him and he gives them all responses like the above.
Isn't it awful that people are so desperate that they even email some Christian lunatic who will only offer them subservience and masochism, as above, rather than addressing their actual problems?

Have you eaten today? If so then thank God for it.
Actually, I thank my grandfather for that. He worked for 40 years to make sure my grandmother would have enough money after his death to buy the family a nice Easter dinner today, and many years afterwards.
Do you have clothes? If so then thank God.
My parents bought my clothes for me, so the thanks goes to my parents, not God.

You know, there's Christians who hate atheists, gays, muslims, jews, etc, etc...
But I thought they would at least like their own fellow Christians.

Just because you have issues with shame doesn't mean you have to shame people for feeling bad, compounding the problem.
I mean, I'm for chewing people out when justified, but you're just a cocksuckser.

I probably have to thank some poor bastards in a Chinese sweatshop for most of my clothes, but I bought them with money that I earned. As for the sandwiches I've just eaten, I'd rather thank the people at the bakery who made the bread and the folks at the peanut butter factory for making the...well, you guessed it.
Frankly, your god can kiss my ass.

Christians can barely get along with each other, let alone people of other religions. Why else the quintillion different denominations? It's because everyone has their own special idea of "proper" Christian values.
If they didn't have Muslims and Atheists to contend with, they'd go right back to judging and attacking each other.

Do you have a bible? If so, thank Gutenberg. The 15th century inventor, not the Police Academy actor.

God is such a prima donna.
4/9/2012 5:28:47 AM
Because showing him what a dickheaded slave-driver God is is sure to get the doubting Christian to embrace that god again.
4/9/2012 5:51:40 AM
Wow, that is the doucheist way of saying "It's all part of God's plan" I have ever encountered. There's a reason why people use the simpler one.
