So apparently I'm spreadin over into Australia! I've got this page, and another one to come right after this deep from Down Under, and they're none too pleased with my disrespect for the President of Christmas, on his birthday no less! Which reminds me! It's almost Christmas!
This latter part of '09 has been much more trying than ever before, so my Christmas spirit has taken a little bit longer to kick in than normal. But today it's snowing, my Christmas shopping is nearly finished and in just a few days I'll be sitting by a lit up tree with the family, eating, drinking and cherishing loved ones!
Anyhow, I'm here wishing all of you a Merry Christmas to the whole wide world! Thank you haters, readers, and lovers alike, because without you I wouldn't have the joy of this site sitting at my fingertips day in and day out.
I'm trying to think up ways to repay all of you for being so good to me, but for now I'm just hoping that my good wishes and sarcastic retorts to asshole believers is enough.

Subject: Jesus Loves You !!!!
Dear Bob Smith
I send you this email with no condemnation or criticism.
I just received notice of your website regarding Jesus Dress up for Christmas.
I want to let you know that Jesus loves you. You see, Jesus's passion is for you and the whole world, His was responsible to take on Himself all the sins of the world so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have eternal life. This eternal life is a spiritual issue, whereby if you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, the spirit that lives in you will connect with God's Spirit and you will come alive inside, essentially you become a follower of Christ.
If you never accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, inside you will remain dead and you will never know God who created you.
I send you this email with the intention that this will raise your awareness on who Jesus really is, and who He really is, is LOVE waiting to have a relationship with you, all you need to do is to ask !
If you ever are angry, confused, sad, unsure what to do, you can say this little prayer to Jesus and He will help you...
"Dear Jesus, I don't know you but I'm wondering if you can help me in this situation I am in right now. (Then let Him know whats going on .....) because I don't know and I'm not even sure if you exist or who you really are, please reveal yourself to me in a way that I will understand who you are, I just need to know that you are real and that you care about me and that you can do something for me. Thank you Jesus. Amen."
I pray that one day soon you will come to know Jesus Christ and begin walking and enjoying your relationship with Him.
Have a wonderful Christmas !
God Bless you J

Yeah, I know all this. It all sounds like a bunch of hogwash to me.
I'm sure you understand where I'm coming from. I mean, you're not the first guy to come along frantically waving a flag of myths in my face. Luckily I know better than to believe anyone who says they know what's after death. It's a valuable trait that's only helped me in my life.
Thank you though. I know you've got the best intentions and don't realize how crazy you sound to normal people. You're searching for weaker minds than mine.
|“I know we may sound crazy to "normal" people but its true!”
Hey Bob !
Thanks for the reply. You sound like a good guy and obviously a bit skeptical about this whole Jesus thing !! That's cool, so was I and I reckon millions of other Christian converts as well !
I know we may sound crazy to "normal" people but its true, when God touches you He touches you and there is nothing you can do about it !!
Anyway, have a great Christmas and I sincerely pray that you will give Jesus a go one day ........
I suppose there were those who were skeptical before they became Muslim, or Jewish too, huh? There were also those who were skeptical before they turned to Hinduism, or Scientology or Buddhism! But they all got touched by their different gods and joined different religions despite their skepticism. Because when the gods reach down and touch you there's nothing we can do about it!!
I mean, you do know we sucker into many different tales of super-gods of all different tastes and varieties around the globe, right? And each of them, once they touch you, there's no doubting they're real! All of them! Because there's "touched" people to vouch for each and every one! Doesn't that tell you something? How does your skepticism get past that?
Our brains are easily made to feel touched.
|“My heart is new and my love is real... Even when I die and my body decays, my Spirit will live for ever having been right with God!”
That's a great answer and your'e right, when people get touched by their different gods they get touched, no doubt about it. You are also right about the fact that our brains are easily made to feel touched, so whatever appeals to us at the time, what ever a person's god may be , they get touched by that god !
All I can do is share my experience from my encounter with Jesus, is that He is real, He loves me and the whole world and He lives inside of me, His Spiritual prescence is real within me and I know it. The scriptures say in John 3: 16 - 17 that.....(verse 16) So God loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have eternal life and verse 17 goes onto say that God did not send Jesus into the World to condemn it but to save it ! That is what I ping my life on and my faith on is that Jesus saved me from spiritual death and I now with Him with live for ever spiritually. Even when I die and my body decays, my Spirit will live for ever having been right with God. Not only will I go to heaven as I continue to walk with Jesus but my life now here on earth takes on a whole different meaning and purpose.
My heart is new and my love is real because of Jesus and what He has done, the gap in my life is now filled by Christ. As I said I can only share what Christ has done for me and everyone will have their story.
Jesus was the only guy who walked the earth who said in John 14:6...that I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. The other religions / beliefs / movements have not been able to lay claim to this statement by Jesus and that's the difference. Other religions / beliefs / movements will give you some happiness, pleasure, relief and hope but it is only temporary because they're beliefs are not centred in Christ and they're beliefs will not give you a relationship with God that Jesus promises. Now this does not mean that these people are bad people and that we should not love them, not at all, it just means the direction they are on is not centred in Christ and they will never know the TRUE AND LIVING GOD because they don't have a relationship with Jesus.
Anyway Bob, its been good chatting with you over email. Bless you heaps and take care over this Christmas and New Year period.
Of course I'm right. It's common sense. You can go ahead and tell me whatever you want, but it's just plain as day that the only way your story fits in with the rest of the world is if it's all just in your head. In fact, if it was all just delusions in people's heads this is exactly how it'd look. Everyone around the world wherever they lived would be "miraculously touched" by the god that's most popular in their region. In India they'd more than likely be touched by Vishnu, in the Middle East it'd be Allah, in Utah it'd be Joseph Smith, Viking times it'd be Thor, Egyptian times - Ra the Sun God, and so on and so on. If it were all delusion this is exactly how the pattern would appear on planet earth, which is coincidentally exactly how it actually is.
Do you think I'd side with the ceasing of natural law before I chalked it'd up to human error? Would you?
Salvatore, no offense, but all you have to do is read your email to see the world of delusion staring back at you.
"My spirit will live forever!"
"Even when I die I'll live with Jesus forever!"
"My heart is new and my love is real!"
Can't you hear yourself? How do you talk like this to strangers and not feel creepy? I mean, it's nice chatting with you too, and I hope you have a happy New Year, but Christ. Have a little dignity.
You know what? I have two terrific questions I'd LOVE to hear you respond to.
#1. Do you think there's such thing as delusional people?
#2. What do you suppose being a delusional person would be like? Sound like? Behave like?
Enough scripture reciting and claiming to know afterlife redistribution policies. Your answers to those questions is what'd be truly interesting reading.
