Question of the Day 33: The Waffling Christian

Image hosting by PhotobucketA while back, Aaron Kinney caught Matt Slick with his pants down and posted it in this topic. In this topic, Matt Slick couldn't help but conclude that children born out of rape should not bear accountabity for the sins of their fathers. A strange assertion, indeed, considering the doctrine of original sin in Christianity, in which all of mankind is held accountable for the sins of two.

That's the funny thing about Christians. They'll actually sound like human beings until they notice that you're paying attention to them. Then they frantically start marginalizing moral behavior within the framework of their absurd belief system.

My question: Why do they do this? How can they waffle back and forth like that and not be aware of what they're actually doing?

I think a requirement of Christianity is a high tolerance for cognitive dissonance.

All religions, but especially Christianity, force people to compartmentalize their knowledge. I know this, as a former Christian. I'm supposed to have a science compartment in my mind, in which I know about the natural laws. Then, I'm supposed to have a theology compartment in my mind, in which I have faith in Noah's Ark and The Resurrection. Those compartments aren't to intermix, as that would cause the inevitable conflict between The Bible and reality.

Well, in my mind, the compartments HAVE intermixed.

I've been an atheist now for about 4 years...

I really enjoyed that one. Matt Slick didnt reply.

And I just caught Manata with his pants down. See the recent post, "Manata Reveals Truth: Jesus Not Human"

Will this wacky merry go round never stop?

Sorry you fell away from God Frances. Did you ever actually have Him anyway? Actually, you don't have to compartamentalize. I don't. ALL my knowledge fits securely and safely in the same box, and I still believe in God. As for cognative dissonance... Here goes:

Okay, I can safely that everyone believes that the child shouldn't bear the burden for the sins of the father, in this case, rape. however, just becuase we may wish this, doesn't mean that is actually going to be the case. Therein lies the "waffling" that you accuse Christians of. If a child is born of rape, it SHOULD be loved fully by its parent and SHOULD live a complete life. However, this is just not case. A child born of rape may be resented, aborted, or mistreated. Simple reality. Christians don't go back and forht, but simply recognize and differentiate between that which is and that which ought to be. You guys do the same thing in many ways.
