THE UNBELIVER’S GUIDE: The four types of Christians and the ONE you must avoid PT 1

Anyone can claim to be a Christian but their orientations, modus operandi and general attitude differ. As such I’ve decided to classify Christians into 4 main echelons:
1. The indifferent believer: You know the type person who says he/she is a Christian but they are so indifferent, consistent in displaying a habitual dispassion and lack luster for the church and anything pertaining to Christendom. This type of Christian doesn’t own a bible, if he/she by chance should own one; it’ll look like a well kept quantum physics text book that has survived the cold war through the 1980s till date. The magnanimity of the dust on their bible is so mean they can give a polar bear instant asthma. These kind of Christians, do not belong to a church nor have a place of worship or a pastor (to some “papa-in-the-lord”, they call it). However they are still Christians. If you happen to ask them where they worship or what church they attain, their typical response will be one of the following :
– “I worship God in my home”,
-“Do I have to belong to a church before I worship God?”
– “I was dedicated in the XYZ Church, my parents attend XYZ church, hence, I’m a XYZ member”
These kinds of Christians, their favorite day of the week is Sunday, for nothing separates their penchant for their video games, TV, soccer, sleep or internet. Even their fellow Christians know this. If they are invited by the other set of Santa Claus Brigade to their Sunday services, they’ll give excuses like:
– “I was unprepared”,
– “I want to do laundry”,
– “My friend is doing a child celebration in his church and I can’t miss it, maybe next Sunday”
– “I’m not feeling fine today”, etc
Nothing disgusts them more than their Christian counterparts who inundate them with their church invitations. With these kind of Christians, the pastor is broke, cos the pastor doesn’t see a dime of their penny. He doesn’t even attend the church, how they see his dime? As a matter of fact, pastors aren’t enthusiastic about them unless of course they happen to be very rich, that is when it’ll interest the holy spirit to evangelize to their souls.
The Jehovah witnesses can attest to these Sunday home-loving Christians, for no matter how much they knock on their gates and doors, there is never going to be someone at the door. If by coincidence they meet someone at the door, he’ll always have a legitimate excuse not to entertain them, one of such popular excuses is that “something is cooking on the fire”.
Talk anything with these Christians but not the church and the bible, for they do not have either of them. Besides John 3:16 and Psalms 23, they have no idea about anything in the bible. But if by chance they attend church, they always look cleaner than the preacher. One reason they’ll be moved to attend a church service is because its friend’s or relative’s child dedication ceremony, in the case of men, he’s chasing a lady, etc but something legitimate will always be the reason his feet will take a walk to the church. One more thing, some of them are great fans of 31st night/end of the year church services or 1st Sunday of the year service. Call them the ceremonial Christian aka Christian under duress.
These Christians normally do not have problems with the unbelievers like the atheists and the irreligious. As a matter of fact, these set of Christians love listening and socializing with the irreligious, for they are irreligious people in absentia or atheists/agnostics in the closest. Many of them won’t find the atheist annoying, but rather interesting and will ever be ebullient to have drinks and companionship with them. These kinds of Christians are naturally anti-pastors and preachers, all of them naturally see the preacher and church as a place of fleecing the sheeple. But one thing they’ll never do is to deny they aren’t Christians. To the other Christians, they are SINNERS and UNBELIEVERS like the atheists.

Part 2: THE LEVEL-PLAYING CHRISTIAN aka SUNDAY-SERVICE CHRISTIAN

Religion and Threats

Religion and Threats

MAGNUM EST VERITAS PRAE VELEBIT. Translation: “THE TRUTH SPEAKS FOR ITSELF”. A simple scientific law of gravitation does not rely on emotional rhetoric to prove itself to be true, just throw an object up and it’ll come down, simple!!! Science didn’t threaten anyone that does not believe in the law of gravity as “ANTI-GRAVITY”, they just left it open to be contested and if you can prove them wrong, then bravo!! If you ask me, that is GOD, because it’s evidential, credential and unquestionable. But religion hides under the cover of phrases like “BLASPHEMY”, “ETERNAL DAMNATION”, “JIHAD”, etc to prevent scrutiny, if you are telling the truth why are you threatening people about it? The answer is simple; you don’t want people to expose your gaffes and loopholes, period!! Scrutiny is indeed the Achilles heel of twaddle.

The first sign of falsehood is its inability to stand-up to scrutiny and questioning. Whatever shields itself from questioning has a lot to hide. Religion forbids questioning and scrutiny and cannot stand-up to critical examination but at the same time it claims to be absolute, infallible and has all the answers. Isn’t that an irony? Whatever that bans scrutiny, whatever hates questioning, whatever considers rational and critical examination as a taboo must not be dignified to have Truth or answers. Religion uses threats and the fear factor to propagate its message while shielding itself from scrutiny. Those who scrutinize and ask questions are considered devils, sinners and all forms senseless adjectives. The real devil and sinner is the religion, for whatever is righteous fears not questioning and rational examination. Every great assertion must stand up to great questions.

Religion and threats are handy; like bread and butter, it is possible for religion to propagate without threats. In religion, there is always a curse and threat to every assertion declared alongside the false promises and pious hope. For example in Islam whoever does not recognize and accept Prophet Mohammed as the last messenger and servant of God will be tortured in hell. In Christianity, whoever does not accept Jesus as Lord and Son of God will be condemned to hell. Why are they threatening people? Does anyone need threats to know the sun and the moon is real? Just imagine this: what would you make of me if I go about saying “anyone who doesn’t accept that I am Imoh Son of David, such a person is fool, idiot, and would be burned in a celestial oven underground”? First of all, if I am truly the name I answer, why would I go about threatening people to accept my name? Do you need threats to know that you’re using a Facebook or there exist a company called NOKIA?

The Lies of Noah’s Ark

The Lies of Noah's Ark

According to the bible, the following is the mathematical fact and picture of Noah’s ark was:
Length: 450 feet, Height: 45 feet, Width: 75 feet, material of the boat: WOOD.
Genesis 6: 19-22 “bring EVERY PAIR of EVERY KIND of animal- a male and a female- into the boat and keep them alive during the flood. Pairs of EACH KIND of bird and each kind of animal, large and small alike will come to you to be kept alive. And remember; take enough food for your family and for ALL the animals.”
There are more than 3 million known animal species on earth and it is said that many more are awaiting identifications. Animals are either vertebrates or invertebrates, cold blooded or warm blooded. We’ll begin to examine a few of them. Remember the bible quoted God to have told Noah to “Bring EACH kind (specie) of birds and other animals. There are approximately 10,000 bird species in the world; we have aquatic birds, wading birds, birds of prey, running birds and other land birds, and they all have sub-species. In other words two of each species of birds was taken. And then to the snakes, we have about 2,700 different species of snakes around the world, so two of each specie was taken to the boat. Dogs; are 5,000 plus breeds of them and then the cats; there are 36 recognized species of wild cats and the domestic cat breed are innumerable, there are 264 species of monkeys, 2,277 species of rodents, 300 distinct breeds of domestic goat, more than 1,000 breeds of sheep and the list goes on. Let’s bear in our minds those different animals species exist in different continents and countries on earth. For instance, the polar bears and seals and the rest of the polar animals, how did Noah preserve them? Was there ice on the Ark? What about a unique animal like Platypus which the bible have never mentioned or known, was it on the ark also? Putting all this in mind, how possible is it for all the animal species to fit into that boat and be fed for 1 whole year? Anyone in this Aquarian age that still believes this book is an infallible WORD OF GOD needs re-examination

God(s) ought not be thanked

The theist and religious may in their customary routine find it desirous to appraise the sky-daddy on their birthdays, in fact some of them do that everyday, owing it pledgeful to thank some God as a gratitude for bestowing life on them. Their plight, I understand very well, for in my times of “religitardness”, I thought same, but now, I am free from such idiosyncrasy.

Many will consider themselves very BLESSED or recipient of some kind of GRACE, BENEVOLENCE and MERCY from whatever they consider as God. This indeed, I thought as much when my senses was under the administration of indoctrination and fable tales.

Contrary to what the religious thinks of his being alive, the truth is that being alive is a CURSE; a burden of the flesh. Better is the unborn than the born or the living. Even the dead is better than the living. The be alive is a burden; the burden of paying bills, the burden of working hard, the burden of gossip, the burden of prayers, the burden of hopes/wishes and disappointment, the burden of sickness and escaping death, the burden of enmity, etc. While the living is on the conscious fight of trying to postpone his death sentence, he doesn’t want to come to terms with the reality that being alive is like being a criminal whose death sentence is pending and could be decided anytime and anywhere.

The religious more than anyone is convinced that his being alive is indeed a gift from God. This indeed is a misconception from medieval consciousness and mentality of religious indoctrination. How can you call something that would be taken from you willy-nilly a GIFT? This is a skew-whiff understanding of what a gift is. A thing is considered a “GIFT” if it’s yours forever. If you claim someone gave something to you as a GIFT, then he’ll come back later to take it from you, how is that a gift? The foremost characteristic and attribute of a GIFT is that the recipient of this GIFT has an autonomy over this said GIFT, but if you ask the believer he’ll assert “MY LIFE IS OWNED BY GOD”. If your life is owned by a God how does that make your life a GIFT from God? The notion is irreconcilable.

“There is no greater happiness than freedom from Worry, and there is no greater wealth than contentment”, says Lao Tsu. Who is truly a man of contentment, great happiness and free from worry? If you ask this Son Of David here, I’ll give it you succinctly that the unborn and the dead are truly the happiest of all, for they are free from worry and are absolutely contented in their state, for there is no greater wealth than this.

I have no deity to thank, other than nature. I did not ask to be born, neither did I apply for life on earth, if at all there is a God that is responsible of my being, he owes me an apology for bringing me here without my consent, for sending me to this place under duress and without sheer negotiation with me. So what the heck do you mean by I should be grateful to someone who I haven’t seen and whose name has caused more mishap than cocaine? He should have said to me “Hey Son Of David, do you wanna be born a Nigerian, do you wanna be born in the 1980s, do you wanna be born tall, short, fat, Hindu, etc? He sent me here without my consultation, approval and consent. In real sense, if that God you people refer to exists, he owes me apologies and payment of damages in excesses than I owe him a single thanks.

Well, I am here now on this planet, so I’ll do the best of my living to the uttermost surfeit of my essence. I live life creatively and make an art out of my existence. Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. Succinctly, I make art out of life.

“Hey Son of David how can say that, you have blaspheme God, blah blah blah…”, the religious may say. Bertrand Russell said “.. And if there were a God, I think it very unlikely that He would have such an uneasy vanity as to be offended by those who doubt His existence”. It’s not “god” that will take offence to what I’ve said it always humans. And here is another one to the religious: “If there is a god maybe it rewards those who don’t believe on the basis of insufficient evidence―and punishes those who do.”
― Peter Boghossian.

“Son of David why is that you like saying these things against God and religion?” The irritated may ask. Well, this is why: My friend, I don’t know how to pretend, that is a fault from God! I never wanted to be irreligious or an unbeliever, I just wanted to read the bible and all the so called holy books then applied my common sense, well, here I am.

“Everything God has made has a crack”~Ralph Waldo Emerson. So if you claim God made me and knew me before I was conceived, I think he already knew that this Son Of David right here will be this way, so he loves me the way I am, after-all you claim he knows the end from the beginning. Well, it’s a good thing that he is imaginary!

The religious man is one who holds one book (which he has barely read) to be sacrosanct and infallible and closes his common sense to anything that refutes it. The difference between this Son of David here and the religious is that I have read the bible, quran, book of Mormon, Tripitaka (the sacred book of Buddhism) and many others. I can confidently tell you that “GOD” is an invention of man. All those books are hokum and gobbledygook. Well, I’ll excuse the Tripitaka because it has some sense than the bible, quran, and  book Mormon. I have studied extensively on the personalities of Buddha, Mohammed and the biblical Jesus, I can confidently say that all of them (if they existed) have trends of psychos and schizophrenic patients especially Mohammed. Buddha was more learned, philosophical, reasonable, humbled and well-mannered than the other two.
