Journal Entry #521
August 3rd, 2011
The main thing I will hear and probably you from anyone who is a believer in a god is that it is all about faith. This is the constant theme and what they profess the most.
Well I call BULLSHIT on this.
This was a post on Face Book by a Christian demonstrating this faith and my response which I will elaborate on;
Faith can move mountains…..Revelations 3:8
When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, Trust Him Fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, He’ll teach you how to fly! The power of one sentence! God is going to shift things around for you today and let things work in your favour. Remember OUR YAHWEH GOD WAY ALWAYS THE BEST WAY as we are ONE CHURCH (JLC) ONE VISION (CROWN) and also the best PAK JS………..

Really, have you seen any mountains move on faith. Come on, faith doesn’t do anything. Sorry to tell you what is true…
I would love to see all the Christians test their faith at the edge of the cliff then we will know for sure now won’t we. I’ll bet after the first few don’t get caught or grow wings that no one else will be willing to jump. Reality certainly will cancel out faith.
Let’s put it to the test.
I’ll bet a third thing will happen you will continue falling and probably die saying to yourself, why did I jump off this cliff.
I guarantee you that everyone who is a believer is also a doubter and it is this doubt that should alert them to reality. Is anyone just going to jump off a cliff no questions asked, no concerns and no doubts and be 100% confident that god will save them? No, because they know that this is not how reality works. If you do not jump off the cliff then you do not have faith. Faith is not expressed when it is convenient it is an all the time thing.
So if like I have said we put it to the test we will see the reality of how humans truly view their god. I am sure the faithful will come up with all sorts of excuses as to why they would not jump off the cliff such as ; It is commanded not to test the lord my god but really these are just excuses. If god is there to protect you and guide you at all times no matter what happens if you live or die it should be the will of your god and you should trust this completely.
So if you do not jump off the cliff without hesitation and again any excuse to not jump is hesitation then you do not have faith in your god, you do not trust your god. The truth is that you really don’t have faith.
Now I will be accused of setting up a straw man here but really if you are not willing to jump and trust that you will be protected then stop professing that you have faith. You are not only lying to yourself but to everyone else as well.
True faith is an illusion, so accept why you would not jump because you understand that gravity works and that you are fragile enough that you will die. You really don’t want to die as your instincts provided to you by the evolutionary process will kick in, another example of reality not god.
So really what you and all others want is to have your cake and eat too.
It is this simple if you have faith you will jump if you have doubt you will not. I am betting that very few will jump if any.
It will just take one person to put it to the test, one brave faithful soul to show the path for others. If he is saved and floats back to safety then we have some credible evidence if not then accept the results that there is no god. Just as you would want me to accept if he floated back it works both ways. I am willing to put your faith to the test are you?
I call bullshit on this faith nonsense…..
Seek the truth always
