Stupid things religious people say

RE: Stupid things religious people say
There they go again, Christians justifying anything they want just by saying their god wanted it that way.
Why is it so?

Quote:No human being is perfect in and of themselves "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of GOD" so "judge not, that you be not judged. For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?" - Matthew 7:1-3

Therefore, "...work out your own salvation with fear and trembling" - Philippians 2:12

How does someone else's misdirection, or an inconsequential focus on the same profit me and my personal standing / status before the holy, Almighty GOD?

To exhort people/you to refrain from the unprofitable judgment of others for the obvious is... "stupid"?

Is your constant knee-jerk dismissal of / scoffing at even a very basic tent of humanity, humility or even reasonableness conveyed in my response not indicative of a hardened heart? 

Pity... let's be on the lookout for our own planks!

And there’s another one.

Look, it’s nothing personal. Christianity is a stupid religion, so anything you say that’s based on Christianity is BOUND to be stupid.

Why should it ever be personal? That you have spot on! 

You have made your entire position clear.

Thank you. Striving for clarity is one of my goals in life.

Your edit: That was pretty stupid.

Person lives: God was watching over them, it's a miracle.

Person dies: God called them home for a reason.

Bullshit. I have never sinned.

Ditto. Since sin is a violation of divine law, atheists can’t sin.

Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense. (Hurting yourself is not sinful -- just stupid.)
