RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Fun:Repentance

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Repentance is what you need to do before you get saved. All of us have committed grievous sins, all must repent or we will be tortured eternally in Hell.

Are we at fault for out grievous sins?

  1. We’re grievous sinners because that’s the way God made us.
  2. Alternatively we’re grievous sinners because that’s the way we became after Adam and Eve ate those juicy apples mysterious fruits.

What can we do about those grievous sins that we couldn’t help doing?

  1. We must be really sorry for all those grievous sins. We must blame ourselves even if we didn't sin because of the way God made us or because of the our ancestors sinned.
  2. We must humbly ask God/Jesus to forgive all those grievous sins, yes even if it’s not our fault.

Is just being sorry enough or must we do more?

  1. We must turn to God and behave in good ways.
  2. We must stop sinning and turn from our evil ways.

But we can’t stop sinning because of human nature. Is all that fair and just?

  1. We must not ask questions like that or God/Jesus will become angry.
  2. We must not ask questions like that or God/Jesus will torment us eternally in hell. [1]


But don’t forget that God loves you.

Footnotes[edit]

  1. Unless we repent the questions we’ve asked we’ll be eternally tormented.
