Bigotry in his attack

A YEAR ago a subscriber pointed to Terry Banfield’s bigotry, prejudice and ostensible research. All of that is evident in his letter attacking Christianity.

It has to be said that Christ and his disciples warned that the Gospel would become distorted, and history has demonstrated that. Nonetheless, it is a fact that the spirit of Christ can still touch the hearts of men to their betterment.

His letter is disgusting and in no way touches the heart of Christ and the meaning of the Atonement. I do not intend to bandy words with him except to comment on the term “blind obedience”.

My obedience to Christ is not blind, it is considered investigation has led to conviction.

Amongst my fellow-believers I include scientists and linguists and they certainly do not render “blind obedience”.

Mr Banfield should consider his own blindness. He has ordered the Creator out of his own universe in the conviction that it is self-created. As Einstein stated, that is against all sense of reason and all sense of truth.

Sorry but it's only a FACT if you can prove the 'spirit of christ' actually exists - which you can't. Faith just ain't gonna cut it.

Another misled fantasist with not a clue what a 'fact' really is.

There is one absolute fact that he will never personally have revealed to him, once that last gurgle exits his throat as he snuffs it, there will be no waking up in some fantasy 'heaven'.
Many have stated they will 'return' to prove the afterlife, none have managed it, nor will they ever do so.

Once your body functions fail and the inevitable termination strikes, all you are good for is fertiliser. and not very good stuff at that.

And, the way the population of the world is getting bigger day by day, you may yet be of some use as Soylent Green ( look it up)

Furthermore Einstein didn't say anything like that. Rather, as true a man of science, he considered belief in a personal deity to be childish superstition.

And yet furthermore....

If these religious nutters ceased the perpetual promoting of their fantasy, the likes of Varteg 1, Roger Elliot and Terry Banfield would not be also perpetually taking them to task..... Justifiably.

It's a bit ripe to call someone a bigot, especially when the name calling comes from a supporter of the worlds greatest cult, itself nothing but total bigotry.

Referring to yourself in the third person V? First sign of madness you know... you'll be quoting scripture next.
