Sermon Audio: Luke 16: 19-31

Last night I was speaking on 'Do we need to believe in hell?' in a mini-series we're doing on heaven and hell. The passage I ended up speaking on was Jesus' story of the rich man and Lazarus.

  1. You need a "license" to read books now? To spread lies, hatred, and bigotry?

    All religions have ever done for the world, via their fantasy joke books, is divide the world.

    If you want a position of power over everyone else then just admit it, and stop the delusional ramblings.

    The developed world is sick of fools like you, wise up and realise it before it's too late.

    And get your head out of the clouds. Look at the world for what it is - the glory of nature, not some magical being who is apparantly "everywhere" despite the lack of even the tiniest shred of evidence.

    Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get my license to preach Harry Potter & The Lord of the Rings.

    - Dónál, Iúr Cinn Trá, Éire.

  2. Donal, thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. My subtitle reflects the fact that I have a licence from the Bishop to preach in his diocese.

    I'm sorry that you feel the way you do - it seems to me that we didn't need religion to divide the world - it's pretty well divided anyway because each of us is out for ourselves. Religions may well increase the division, which is no doubt a bad thing.

    What may surprise you, though, is that I hate religion as much as you. Religion won't save us - it only fools us into thinking we're all right by our own efforts. Something similar to the athiest's pride and self-sufficiency.

    I hate religion, and love Jesus Christ. Not religion, but relationship.
