    Surely someone will cite the use of too many 'you's' in a sentence by too many Christians!
    Funny post, though.

    Well, my motivation for rejecting what you call 'Christianity' is
    your idolization of the Bible. You have taken what you call the
    Word of God and turned it into a static entity. The way you
    read it, it no longer breathes with the 'wind' of the Holy
    Spirit. It's just a means for condemnation for you. This is the
    very thing that Jesus spoke out against with respect to the
    Pharisees. You guys are washing the outside of the cup, not
    the inside.

    How in the world did this crap get three recs? Coletti, what do you think are the real reasons people reject Christianity? Can you come up with three plausible candidates?

    Most of your possiblilities actually assume a belief in God coupled with a desire to avoid the implications.
    My reason is that Christianity make no logical sense (to me). To become a Christian would be like trying to believe that I can fly then stepping off the top of a cliff. But as there is nearly zero motivation to step off the cliff and my whole life experience has told me that I cannot fly, I tend to keep my feet on solid ground.

    [edit]
    I would also prefer to call it ignoreing Christianity rather than rejecting as Christianity has never been credible enough for me to really consider.

    Good for you, Coletti! Let those base emotions out...keeping them bottled up could lead to anti-social behaviour. However, allow me to take a look at your "points", shall we?

    a) fear of truth

    This seems to be the reason many accept xtianity. Fear...that this is all there is, and sometimes life ain't pretty. There's no magical everlasting existence, no loving creator, no happy fairy tale endings. You get one chance to experience it, and then it's gone. You're scared, you can't let go of your ego, and thus are ready to believe whatever will soothe your angst.

    b) poor father image

    Xtians seem to be the ones suffering from this malaise, and you know it. Most of the non-theists (read: Non-christians) I know are not the ones looking for a surrogate "father".

    c) to protect your image as a rogue

    Is that how you wish to project your weakness in your faith on me? Calling me a "rogue"? Frankly, this speaks more about your self-image than it does about my character. Sorry.

    e) desire to protect your false sense of value

    My sense of values are not "false" any moreso than yours are "true".

    f) you where/are a bed wetter and praying didn't fix it

    Childish.

    g) hate to give up porno

    Ditto. I can't say I'm surprised.

    h) you read it in a book

    And you've chosen to believe the bible because...what, again? You saw it in a movie, I suppose.

    i) being born again isn't cool

    Define "cool". On second thought, don't.

    k) you think you're better than those "hypocrites" at church

    So, you've never encountered an xtian who feels they're better than Unsaved Heathens Like Me. You might want to check the man in the mirror on that one, Skippy.

    l) you think you're going to live forever anyway

    No. I know I won't, which makes my existence here on earth that much more valuable. Unlike, say, a "Christian" who has somehow been convinced this life is worth less than the one he'll have after he dies.

    m) someone told you that you'd get free smokes in hell

    Wow. Wit as sharp as a banana, that's you.

    I've rejected Christianity because there's nothing there. It's an exercise in ego-stroking, and I have no use for weak, empty minded drivel. If it makes you happy to continue to be spoon fed feel-good, security blanket doctrines designed to keep you ignorant, knock yourself out. Don't expect me to follow suit.

    d) fear of losing sanity

    (I can see why you would've left that one out.)
