Christianity gives you NOTHING. That's right, nothing.
You get struck on the cheek and you pony up for the other slap.
Your pray for the enemy who wants you face down in the mud with his heel on your neck.
You get treated like pond scum and force a smile and forgive.
Abused? Forgive and forget.
Need help desperately? Pray! Pray harder! Pray even harder!!
When nothing happens, chalk it up to your unworthiness and lack of faith.
The path of christian righteousness is strewn with the corpses of ascetics who gave up everything in life but misery and hope that the next life would be better.
Apostle Paul tells fellow christians to take up their cross knowing how excruciatingly torturous a devout follower of Christ will find the journey.
Why? Because Christianity gives you NOTHING........except pie in the sky bye and bye!
Waste your life and bet everything on the little white Roulette ball spinning around the Bible casino and hope when your number comes up you it the jackpot instead of the permanent inside of a coffin for the eternal dirt nap!
Perhaps the worst part is that you are compelled in knee-jerk Pavlovian fashion to DEFEND the silliness of the Bible and interpretations of your fellow know-it-alls.
No matter how crazy something is--you find a way it could possibly be absolutely true!
Christianity gives you NOTHING!
Trying waiting for a bus.
Need to prove the impossible? Quote from a book translated and recopied for thousands of years which has no provenance.
With a church on every street corner and a hundred interpretations for every doctrine you can rest assured you are on firm ground in your faith.
NOw, its your turn to feel sorry for me out loud and to cut and paste a dull litany of scripture and personal revelation like the little boy who stuck his finger in the Dike. (No, the other kind.)
