I think my blog is known for its regular features. For a while, I had a funny Bible quote every day (101 days in total, basically until I got bored and then I rounded it off to a nice number… then forgot I had an unnumbered Christmas quote, hence the 101). Now I do cartoons, word puzzles (which are more like visual Photoshop representations of cliché phrases), and some other random stuff.
I thought long and hard, and after a dog walk I decided on a great feature to unleash on you all during my tenure here at SE.
I never got many Christian readers at my blog. Let’s face it: Christians don’t spend much time on atheist blogs (although I think calling them retarded on a semi-regular basis keeps the Christians and all people over 30 away in general). But SE – while I know Nikkolas is loathe to admit it –attracts a fair number of Christians.
I think it’s all the fiscal conservatism. Christians love knowing the state isn’t helping poor people, only the wealthy. I know that’s how Jesus saw things, since he was such a fan of Rome and hated the poor…
I digress. The feature I came up with (which normally won’t have this rambling, insulting preamble): Stump the Christians. In it, I’ll come up with a scenario where I challenge Christians explain. It won’t be easy; I’ve read the Bible, so none of these are going to be directly addressed in there. Instead, I challenge Christians to take a wild stab at what they think is right.
I’ll be honest… this feature relies on you guys, the readers, because if I am just posting tough questions and no one comments, it will get boring really quick.
Today’s “Stump the Christians” question:
If you are 8 months pregnant and the rapture occurs, will your baby rapture with you, or will it be left behind, unsaved?
Please keep in mind that “Original Sin” is not strictly Catholic (consult Romans 5:12 and Psalm 51:5).
