Ex-pastor: 10 Things I Hate About Christianity

Go back to Todayinreligion.com

Jason T. Berggren (right), a devout Christian, a former pastor and a former heavy-metal Christian rocker has written a book entitled "10 Things I Hate About Christianity."

Normally I would would find a review and drop this in the book section of the Today In Religion website, but it's just as easy to list the 10 things and be done with it.

Here they are:

1. Faith: “There is no evidence for what we believe. That’s why it’s called faith. God doesn’t appear at the mall with Jesus to buy you sneakers.”

2. Prayer: “You do it, and it feels like it doesn’t accomplish what you want it to accomplish. You wonder: What’s really changed? Sometimes God takes time and asks us to accept no.”

3. The Bible: “So often you read something and wonder, is that trustworthy? Is it helpful? Does everything always have to be so boring and confusing?”

4. Sin: “Am I really so evil or so bad that I have to think of myself as sinful? Of course, we’re all only two or three decisions from ruining our life completely.”

5. Rules: “Why are there so many rules, and do I have to keep them all? There is too much to keep track of.”

6. Love: “It feels too hard to love everyone all the time.”

7. Hell: “Why would a loving God create hell?”

8. Answers: “I don’t always like the answers that Christianity gives. Do I have to accept them?”

9. Church: “Everyone says go to church. But how does that make me a better person?”

10. Christians: “Why are Christians so crazy, annoying and judgmental?”

You must be out of your fucking KKK mind, you stupid piece if crap. It's people like you who make this world the hell-hole is often is. Go study history and realize how biased and uninformed you really are.

Please do everyone else a favor: dig a whole in the middle of the nowhere you live, climb in, and burry yourself. Please?

White, atheist, humanist, liberal, KKK hater.
