The Worst Blasphemy by Pencilartguy The Worst Blasphemy by Pencilartguy
I have heard many things said about God that are absolutely abhorrable. Usually when it comes to blasphemy people either turn Jesus' name into a joke, use God's name in foul language, insult religion on TV, ect.

However I think the worst form of blasphemy is to say that the all-merciful God will not forgive your sins. It hurts Him more than it does to use His name in a joke or even to slander it.

Just think about it. Why would the Father send His only begotten Son into the world to die, not to condemn you, but to save you, if He would really refuse to forgive you?

I think of all the things people could say about God, this is the worst. People who believe that God won't forgive them are believing a lie from the devil himself.

People who feel that they offended God should never be afraid of asking for His Mercy. Remember the story of the Prodigal Son, whom spent his father's money on prostitutes and easy living. All the father wanted was to have his son back. If you truely regret the bad you have done, God will be there for you. He rejoices more over the one who repents than the ninety-nine who do not need to repent.

If you ask for forgivness, it will be given unto you. If you seek forgiveness, you will find it. If you knock on the door of mercy, it will surely be opened unto you.

Do not despair, let the love and the mercy of God envelope and guide. Have peace in your souls and may He bless you all the days of your life.

The god will not forgive anyone, because he does not exist. There are no proofs of any god's existence.

Once upon a time there was a Christian nursery school teacher who used the Bible as her guide in disciplining her students. So one day she threw three little children into the dumpster out back behind the school and locked them all inside. When the police came to investigate, she said in her own defense: "I didn't send the children to the dumpster! THEY SENT THEMSELVES THERE! I warned them all, sternly, that there was to be no hitting in my class. And I told them exactly what would happen if they disobeyed me. So I didn't do it. THEY DID IT TO THEMSELVES!" In a near state of shock, the policeman then asked: "Aren't you the one who took them out back and locked them in the dumpster? And exactly how long did you plan on leaving them in there?" The teacher replied, quite seriously: "Forever, of course. They were warned! And yet they chose to do this to themselves, anyway. It had nothing to do with me!" As the teacher was being hauled away to jail, she continued to protest: "What are you arresting me for? THEY DID IT TO THEMSELVES! THEY DID IT TO THEMSELVES!"

Is this story even a real story? I would argue the same woman who did that to those kids sent herself to jail.

We are talking about adults and older teens who clearly are responsible for their actions. I have noticed a trend to those who counter-argue my stamp. You all bring up children who are not able to fully account for their own actions. That's a faulty argument. Someone who is not able to fully comprehend something or control their own actions like small children or the severely mentally handicapped cannot be likened to those who knew the wrong of the actions and did them anyway.

What you are arguing is akin a guy who raped a woman and then blaming it on the woman for the way she dressed and acted in a promiscuous manner. "I don't deserve to go to jail! I'm not sending myself to Jail It's not my fault she dressed and acted like a slut! You're the one sending me to jail!"
Do you see how blaming the judge to pronouncing a sentence sounds in this perspective?

You cite THAT guy? Jeez, Darkmatter2525 is the atheist version of Jack Chick. He knows next to nothing of Scripture or the history of the early Christians and is easily refutable. How does this refute any of what I said? I saw that video before and I am going to tell you what I told the last guy who showed it to me. We are talking about something on the basis of a criminal going to prison for his crime, that he was responsible for. Not a robbery victim choosing not to give someone money and getting shot. Again, the robber is the criminal and he committed a crime against a victim. The robber is responsible for putting himself in jail.

But hey, given the logic you are arguing I guess you would think it's the child's fault pedophile priests raped them since they chose to resist them. So I guess you would also think God would be wrong to let pedophile priests go to hell because of their crimes against children. You seem to prefer defending offenders rather than victims.

"He knows next to nothing of Scripture or the history of the early Christians" he knows alot about both subjects
"
and is easily refutable" says you
"
How does this refute any of what I said?" i could write a whole book about things you don't understand , wouldn't be of much use to you , though , there'd be nothing you'd be interested in in there
"

"
the robber is the criminal and he committed a crime against a victim. The robber is responsible for putting himself in jail." some criminals would say the same of the victim , choosing to be killed by the robber , yahweh is like the robber in a way : demanding all bow to him or suffer forever
"
But hey, given the logic you are arguing I guess you would think it's the child's fault pedophile priests raped them since they chose to resist them." i said NOTHING of this sort
"
So I guess you would also think God would be wrong to let pedophile priests go to hell because of their crimes against children." he wouldn't even send them to hell , he'd send them to heaven because they worshiped him , apparently , according to him , even the SLIGHTEST disagreement with his methods earns people a place in hell
"
You seem to prefer defending offenders rather than victims." i can say the same of you

-Ok then, what exactly does darkmatter2525 know? I have seen him refuted quite a few times.
-Easy for you to say. You haven't provided anything that refutyes what I said about taking responsibility for your own actions.
-How is it debatable? The subject is a matter of punishing a criminal. Not a victim.
-God is not a robber. He is demanding what is owed to him. How is that robbery? Withholding something that is not yours is robbery.
-You're right. You didn't say anything of the sort. But that is the kind of logic you are arguing. What you are presenting is people who harm others. God would be wrong to punish.
-No because God will punish unrepentant sinners who call him "Lord, Lord." It does not matter if pedophile priests worshipped God. If they did not repent and didn't try to atone for their heinous crimes God would still punish them. Matthew 7:21 says "Not all who call me 'Lord, Lord' will enter into heaven but only those who do the will of my Father" and in Matthew 18:6 "If anyone causes one of these little ones--those who believe in me--to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea." So if a priest sinned by raping a child and causing him/her to leave God, God would hold that priest into account. You can't present facts that counter-arguments against Fundamentalists Christians when you are arguing against a Catholic because they are not the same thing.
-Explain how I am defending offenders over victims?

"Ok then, what exactly does darkmatter2525 know?" apparently more than you do
"

"

"
God is not a robber. He is demanding what is owed to him." that makes him no better than a robber
"
Withholding something that is not yours is robbery." yahweh does that alot in the bible , he demands too much from followers and non-followers alike
"
But that is the kind of logic you are arguing. What you are presenting is people who harm others." yahweh does harm to those who don't deserve it in the bible (women and children)
"
It does not matter if pedophile priests worshipped God. If they did not repent and didn't try to atone for their heinous crimes God would still punish them." then apparently , we're ALL going to hell , regardless if we believe in him or not , he seems to have the mentality of a bratty 4 year old , demanding alot from us , then overreacting when he doesn't get what he wants
"
So if a priest sinned by raping a child and causing him/her to leave God, God would hold that priest into account." then apparently , forgiveness should be forgotten , according to that statement
"
You can't present facts that counter-arguments against Fundamentalists Christians when you are arguing against a Catholic because they are not the same thing." catholicism is a christian denomination
"
Explain how I am defending offenders over victims?" if you see god as a cop , then he's most likely like a corrupt cop , willing to do whatever it takes to get his way

-How so? You can't even provide an example
-No you haven't.
-An entire culture engaged in or at the very least supported sins that were carried out and committed against Israel and Judah. Not only that, God waited a long time to punish those who committed evil. For example He said if there were just 10 righteous in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah he would spare the entire cities simply for their sake. He didn't even fight that much. And if you care so much about women and children being killed, then let me ask you something: do you support about? That kills both women and children. Especially children.
-Ok, so if I demand something that is mine, that makes me a robber? If I demand money I work for, that makes me no better than a robber? Your argument is seriously flawed.
-Look, I do not feel bad for people who engaged in ritualistic pagan acts of pedophilia, sacrificed children to pagan gods, practiced sex slavery and other abominations. Back during WWII, when the Japanese were massacring Chinese and Korean men and raping their women we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which resulted in many deaths of women and children. Were we wrong to do that? And again, if you care about women and children so much do you support abortion? Because that kills both women and children.
-Now you are just grasping at straws. I said if the said priests did not repent they would be punished. If you think God is really like a bratty 4 year old, let me ask you something, if that is the case why are you still alive after insulting Him? I find it hard to believe that a God who comes to earth as a man to die on a cross in the most excruciating pain someone could ever go through so we could have hope of eternal life, who never even cursed those mocking and killing him, who asked for their forgiveness, is someone who is malevolent.
-Again you are grasping at straws and putting words into my mouth. Where did I argue that forgiveness should be forgotten? I could forgive someone stealing $100 but isn't it only fair that I be recompensed that $100 taken from me? What good is forgiveness without atonement? If someone doesn't atone for their sins in this life they can atone in purgatory. It is only fair.
-But Catholicism and Fundamentalism do not share the same doctrines. Fundamentalism believes in the Bible alone. Catholics do not believe that since the Church came before the Bible (it was the Catholic Church that made the bible.)
-No, I see God as both a just judge as much as a merciful savior. But even if to you he comes across as a police officer He cannot become corrupt since a corrupt cop violates the law to their own ends. God never broke the law. He wrote it and upheld every letter to it. If He was a corrupt cop he would have broken the law. Again, flawed argument.

What's your point?

So you make God subject to your hatred simply because of "absurd obsession"? I think you really ought to understand the difference between obsession and devotion. Also what kind of reason is that to hate hate a God you don't believe exists anyway? That's like saying "I hate chocolate because you love it." And I fail to see how a Christian with a strong devotion to God is the same as some teenage girl obessesing over some sparkling, vegan vampire or giant wolf. A fandom has nothing in common with religion.

Then why have I heard both of those things come out of your holy people, supporters etc. say that?
Go to hell by their own choice? Most people don't want to go to hell. This world is hell enough, why would they "choose" hell? They don't because it isn't their choice. God knows everything you are going to do and knows if you will go to heaven or hell, so it's pretty much predetermined.
Reply
:iconpencilartguy:
Pencilartguy Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
No it's not. When I say "people go to hell by their own choice" I am speaking the truth. In order to go to hell you have to reject God. When you die you spend your eternity in heaven or in hell, depending on the choice you made. If you reject God before you die, you made the choice to spend eternity away from Him. What I said is not a contradiction. To them it would be more painful to spend an eternity with the God than in hell. It's like being chased by a pack of wolves. A man offers you shelter from them but if you refuse him then the wolves will eventually catch and devour you.

I don't know who is saying what you said but obviously those people are basing their statements out of their opinion and their own understanding, which is obviously wrong.

Nobody is predetermined where they will spend their eternity. Human will can affect divine will. Ninevah was to be destroyed because of the sins the people committed, but when Jonah (unwillingly) prophecised of it's destruction the people fasted and repented and city was spared.

That makes no sense. There are a fair number of people who don't know about your God before they die, so they have no chance to accept him. Thus they have no say. Also just because they reject him that gives him the right to throw them into an eternity of pain? Sounds like a wonderful and loving father alright.

I heard it from ordained priests, anti abortionists, anti homosexuals etc. etc. and I hear it often. If it's to the point where even I hear it that often, that shows me something about your religions.

If God is omniscient, he knows everything that will happen. If he has a plan, then what he knows will happen is his plan. Thus is predetermined. If human will could affect divine will to the point of change, then God isn't as strong as you think.

Well if someone really didn't know about God, or never had the chance to learn about them, God would understand. Like as if a child took something from a store and didn't know it was stealing, I'm pretty sure a parent would understand if they didn't know what stealing was.

Pencilartguy Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2012
I don't think you are understanding what I am saying. God does not throw people into an eternity of pain. People throw themselves there. That is not God's desire but he will not stop anyone who wishes to do this to themselves. Ever read the story of the prodigal son? The Father did not want to see his son run off to waste his inheritance on wasteful living but he did not stop him either. The son eventually spent everything and found himself in deep trouble (which eventually caused his son to return to him). The father knew it would happen but still he would not stop him from making his choice. This is why I compared it to being chased by wolves. You can accept the man's help or choose not to.

People who haven't had a chance to know God aren't "destined" as you say, to go to hell. How could they reject a God they don't know?

The fact that human will may affect divine will does not deter the strength of God. He gave us free will and He does not go against it. For example, God could call a man to become a priest. It's up to that man to say "yes". If he doesn't God may call someone else.

If your God cared so much, he wouldn't let them go to an eternity of suffering. Free will is fine, but any normal parent would stop their kid from suffering.

Then what happens to them? If they don't go to hell then they certainly aren't going to heaven.

That makes no sense.

I already told you, to them it would be more painful to spend an eternity with a God they did not love (or hated) than to be in hell. Any normal parent would stop their kid from suffering. But if that kid chooses to continue his own suffering then what else can be done? Again, it's about choice.

I honestly cannot answer that question. All we can do is pray for those who die without knowing God. But I doubt those who die without ever having the chance to know God go to hell because God would never want anyone to go there.

Alright but that also means you have to be willing to change. You cannot perform abortions anymore and you have to speak out against it. If someone repeatedly asked for God's forgivness but wasn't willing to change (for example, someone who steals and asks for God's mercy but refuses to change) than it shows they are not truly sorry for what they did.
