Sunday Statement: "Don't Lump Me in With the Bunch!"
Please don't lump me in with people you assume to be followers of Jesus.
I mean people like Jim Jones, Jim Bakker, Peter Popoff, Benny Hinn or any other loon you might associate with evangelicalism. I do not appreciate being judged in such a manner. I am a Christ-following man, and that is for sure but people like this can ruin the impression non-believers have of all of us. This prejudice is unwarranted and I ask that you forget impostors like this and move on with the respectful debates Christians and atheists should be engaged in.
I think you wouldn't like it if I wrapped you in the list of famous atheist particularly the ones who caused serious destruction and death on a massive scale. You know guys like Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Pol Pot and others who epitomized the word dastardly.
I won't lump you in with those nut cases so please don't lump me or any other Christian in with those claiming some special revealtion from God. These people are well outside of mainline Christianity and most Christians you meet do not fit the profile of these loons.
Thank you for respecting my wishes, now lets get back to something more interesting...
Does God Exist?
