Street-Side Christians Trying to Save You

Standard

You know the feeling. When they give you ill-designed pamphlets with Jesus on it and tell you how you are going to go to hell without the mercy of god.

Here are some replies to their annoying questions you can use the next time (from http://www.iamanatheist.com/):

The God Who Wasn’t There

Video
Ex-Christian Brian Flemming’s exposé shines an unflinching spotlight on Christianity and the existence of Christ. Flemming interviews religious experts and Christians of varying backgrounds, ultimately asserting that Jesus Christ is more than likely a fictional character based on legend and that Christian doctrine is rife with contradiction.
  • The early founders of Christianity seem wholly unaware of the idea of a human Jesus
  • The Jesus of the Gospels bears a striking resemblance to other ancient heroes and the figureheads of pagan savior cults
  • Contemporary Christians are largely ignorant of the origins of their religion
  • Fundamentalism is as strong today as it ever has been, with an alarming 44% of Americans believing that Jesus will return to earth in their lifetimes

The Greatest Story Ever Sold: Spirit of the Age

Video

“Zeitgeist: The Movie” is a 2007 documentary film by Peter Joseph. Below is Part I of the documentary, called “The Greatest Story Ever Told”:

The more you begin to investigate, what we think we understand, where we came from, what we think we are doing, the more you begin to see we’ve been lied to by every institution. What makes you think for one minute that the religious institution is the only one that has never been touched? The religious institutions in this world are at the bottom of the dirt. The religious institutions in this world are put there by the same people who gave you your government, your corrupt education, who set up your international banking cartels. We have been misled, away from the true and divine presence of the universe that men have called “god”. I don’t know what god is, but I know what he isn’t. And unless and until you are prepared to look at the whole truth, wherever it may go, whoever it may lead to, the more you educate yourself, the more you understand where things come from, the more obvious things become, and you being to see lies everywhere. You have to know the truth and seek the truth and the truth will set you free.
