What’s in a Name … June 3, 2013

A label, let’s add a label to it. Everythingatheism inside needs a label. Without religion there would be no need for the label ‘atheist’. Without religion there would be no label ‘christian’. Without religion christian-soldierthere would be no ‘belief’.

When an individual does the adequate research and declares he or she does not believe, he or she assumes the label ‘atheist’. This label changes nothing. The person is the same after the label is applied as before.  If they were good people they will still be good people. If they were bad people they will still be bad people.

When an individual falls for the monumental hoax of all time and declares he or she is a christian, he or she assumes the label ‘christian’. This label changes nothing. The person is the same after the label is applied as before. If they were good people they will still be good good peoplepeople. If they were bad people they will still be badbad people people.

No miraculous transformation occurs. The only changes that do seem to occur is that the atheist seems more relaxed than when an internal battle was being waged and the christian seems more frantic as they must live up to impossible ideals.Signature:baed3687aecc9fc02b05e033f52ab04b5ac34144c6f0702c4e0cfe36f9d34041

The pressures to live up to the impossible ideals presented by the pastor’s interpretation of the bible mustrelaxed atheist be horrendous. Relaxation must be a task in itself. They dare not relax their guard and violate some small edict of the lord knowing they will feel so guilty for days afterward. Unknown to them, guilt is what the pastor wants them to experience. Guilt, mixed with fear, is what keeps the faithful faithful. Gee, perhaps the people who are bad and assume the label ‘christian’ become the pastors, preachers, ministers, and priests?
