I Have No Faith...

...in people when it comes to spiritual beliefs and I believe that I have explained why in at least one post or another. This was a thread on facebook that a "friend" of mine posted. The comments, although intended to be comical, just made my eyes bug out. Why are people so critical of other people's beliefs?


GK: asks what do you say to an atheist after they sneeze?? Anyone?? lol

Norris: Wow!! I can't even joke on this one because of the negative judgements about other people's beliefs. And people wonder why I stopped going to church. Why can't people just respect what other people believe?

I just didn't think that this was funny. If someone had made fun of Christianity, Islam, or Judiasm, I don't think there would have been any LOLs in the comments.

To That Dude Right There,Your lack of faith has blocked major blessings in your life. Where is your faith? Everything in life requires a measure of faith.

To Mr.Jones,
Get over it sir, the chruch is full of x somethings. You are allowing other people to block your blessings, take the mask off and allow God to really work in your life. God's grace and mercy has been extended to many, and he has not lifted the viel off, we all have faluts but should be moving forward.
--
To Stella, yes they were, but the response show how misinformed the people were.
--
Chet, Yes its a touchy subject, but I'm not afraid to go there.
--
To That Dude Right There,Get back your faith in life, in the possibilites in what can be, your goals, dreams and visions for your life. I will address this more in the coming days on my blog at http://thesimplelifeofrodrigo.blogspot.com/
I want you to work on moving forward, its not about your past its about your future.

@Rodrigo-If you can tell me exactly which blessing have been blocked, i'll reconsider my faith. I haven't lost my faith in God, i've lost my faith in people when it comes to spiritual beliefs. It's not God that I have the problem with, it's the people that attempt to tell me what God wants. No one knows and know one can tell me for sure.

For that reason, I will stick with what I believe in.

Word TDRT! I guess unfortunately some groups are easy targets for jokes while like you said if other groups were joked about, all hell would break loose.

This precisely why I do not make it a habit of discussing relgious veiws with those who are not like minded, it is simply to personal and too touchy. Sometimes it is better to leave the can of worms unopened.

Somehow I think the comments left were intended for a joke. We tend not to joke abut anything that is seen as traditional. So they can joke about atheists, other minorities and it is fine.

I would say bless you. I have an atheist friend and he would not flip if I said that.

Well, I'm agnostic myself and I used to immaturity and hypocrisy from the majority of Christians. I used to be a devout christian and most of the time it comes with the territory.
Myself, I don't know what is beyond life as we know it and unless someone died and came back then neither do they (Near Death Experiences do not count)...All I try to do is live everyday as a good person. That blesses and makes me happy.
To quote the Dalai Lama "My religion is kindness."
Be that as it may I don't care what anyone says when I sneeze. lol.

I was stunned by Rodrigo's comments. How presumptuous to assume that we can know when other people's blessing are blocked. Norris you were right to point out that all are entitled to believe what they want to believe. But the post points out the problem with many modern Christians. Too many of us are "word" Christians we say I'm blessed, Praise the Lord and thank you Jesus with our mouths but our lives betray our words. Where is the patience, the kindness and the temperance in our lives?
