Agnosis Skeptikos

The introspective wanderings of a one-time Christian turned agnostic

Pronouncements of Doom

Posted by agnosis on June 27, 2007

Apparently, the Christian mission to share the Gospel gives them the right to toss tact to the wind. I can’t count the number of times I’ve heard a Christian tell someone point-blank that they’re going to hell. Talk about a great way to shut someone down and turn them off to your message immediately. Frankly, it’s disgusting how rude and obnoxious most Christians are as they go about trying to ‘convert’ others to their way of thinking. I don’t understand why they think that such an approach might work, yet the persistence of this technique indicates that Christians think such in-your-face tactics should not only work but that the truth of their message as conveyed by this approach should be blatantly self-evident to whoever their victim is that day. I guess it shouldn’t be surprising, then, that they are completely blind to the fact that the interpersonal doors of communication get slammed right in their face and anything else that’s said henceforth from such a dire pronouncement is ignored and disregarded as the rantings of a lunatic. Who wants to be a Christian when faced with that kind of antagonism and hostility? I sure don’t.
