Aren't these rockets just your typical 'born again' type?

Re: Charismaniacs
I think anyone who has gone thru this 'born again' experience really has had their view of the world altered, and I'm not saying that this is a bad thing in every case. However, some of the most repungent and ignorant people I have ever met claim to have been born again.
But these pentecostals should really be put in an institution away from the rest of us.
These people make a mockery out of Christianity, they need gimmicks to reinforce their faith. We have pentes here, but there's not too many of them, but this type of showmanship would never catch on here.
Maybe you can help me out here. I was watching the God channel a few eeks ago and this 'evangelical' preacher was at his stuff but I didnt get his name. He looked like an ex-rocker, bald head, covered in tattoos, and he was in front of a huge crowd. it was one of the most embarrassing things I have ever seen on tv.

Re: Charismaniacs
Cheers Ian.
I must admit though, there's more difficult ways to make money.

Re: Religion Can Be A Drug
You really cant blame Benny here, you have to blame the morons who go along to this crook.
I do agree that this is very sad, but I'd group all clergy as being the same, they are all crooks and liars.

An obvious crook and liar
Hi Phat,
To me, that is not the type of response that a crook or a liar would give.
Well, just for a wee surprise , I disagree!
This creature is every bit as evil as Benny Hinn!
What he is essentially saying is that he knows that Christianity is a heap of sh*t, but he wants to keep it going under some different guise.
Why doesn't he just come out and say that he now thinks that Christianity is nonsense instead of trying to repackage it? He has came to the conclusion that the religion he preached for so long is actually garbage, why not just admit that and move on instead fo trying to mislead more people?
I know why.
He is preying on those Christians who are having doubts about their faith. He is saying " hey, I know that at this moment in time you are having doubts about your faith because a lot of it doesn't make sense right now, but I had these doubts too, and here is how I overcame these doubts". Buy my books!
He's a crook Phat, every bit as bad as Hinn and all the others. He is a liar too, completely dishonest.

Re: An obvious crook and liar
But what he is promoting Phat is NOT Christianity.
If he was honest he would admit that he had been following a pile of crap for years, and now he would like to search for some other answers because Christianity is wrong.
He wants to have his cake and eat it too.
Why cant he just admit that Christianity is wrong?
And yes, all religious people have something missing.

illogical captain!
As long as I agree that my belief is irrational, I see no damage in my logic.
Wouldn't it be logical to reject something that is illogical?
Hope is hope.
What you hoping for Phat?

Re: The Real McCoy Could Actualize
If you were some day confronted with some solid evidence that God existed, and by this I dont mean the God that humans mapped out in the Bible but the actual McCoy...what would you do? Pinch yourself?
I've said here before that if I was confronted by a god, or heard what I though was God's voice, I would go to the doctor asap and get checked out.
Pshycologically ill people experience 'realities' all the time, some go for help, others become Christians.

Re: What IS Christianity?
Poor b*stards.
The second one reminds me of that scene in the Blues Brothers when Jake gets his mission from God, and a timely reminder that uncles should never dance at weddings.
