    Thats how you are supposed to do it

    by LordTwinkie

    If Christians earnestly wanted to get people to accept Christ they are better off doing crap like this then running around screaming at people telling them they are going to hell or all fags must die.

    I want to genuinely apologize to Harry here

    by MoffatBabies

    the reaction must be a little shocking, that we can't just relax and enjoy this obviously kinda cool thing... But we've watched these types buttfuck culture for so many decades now, it just feels like an insult when they try to incorporate said culture into the fold. Hard to get past, clearly. I didn't really expect to see the comments go in this direction. I expected to get flamed.

  • July 21, 2011, 7:01 a.m. CST

    by SonicRiver

    Read machivelli, plato and some bertolt brecht. Culture has been buttfucked by those in positions of power prior to the Scopes Trial, and it will be forever after. That is the nature of power. I think it is a little simplistic to blame it all on a few try hard evangelicals.

  • July 21, 2011, 7:20 a.m. CST

    Simple? Complex?

    by MoffatBabies

    Comparisons? This is the reality WE live in. Buttfucking is buttfucking. I may not have taken college level philosophy or even history, but I've probably read more about and by those people than most graduates. Omission isn't ignorance.

    one of the biggest problems is judgment

    by EZ Leonard

    The people I know that are prone to pound their chests and pronounce how faithful they are often times the most judgmental. In order to spread the message, however, you are asked to lead others to Christ. But, just like all aspects of life, the radicals, in regards to religion or politics, that are so quick to disparage those who oppose their views, give every side a bad name. I've been going to this website almost daily since its inception and never thought I'd post anything, so here's my first. I guess I was compelled. I actually attend this very church, and Craig Groeschel has found a unique way to spread the message worldwide. http://www.lifechurch.tv/who-we-are/about

    Im a straight man so I suppose I think like a lesbian. Theres nothing wrong with being lesbian. Christians think being gay is wrong though I masterbate like everyone else (not in public, that WOULD make me a weirdo!).<p> everyone maturbates. Christians think its wrong to masturbate. Christans masturbate, they might call it wet dreams, I call it wanking in your sleep. Im not a paleontoligist, but I do beleive the earth is more than 5000 years old. Some (not all) christians dont in evolution and dont think dinosaurs ever existed. <p>

    Why would you NOT use Tron as part of the ministry series?

    by D.Vader

    It's about a creator who has one fallen son turned to evil and another who becomes a savior. It's about feeling lost without the Father figure, feeling like you don't measure up, that you'll be a disappointment to him when you finally see him (you won't be). It's about personal failings and foibles, the idea of perfection and how we can not achieve it, but how we can aspire to it. There are so many themes worth discussing in Tron: Legacy, regardless of your thoughts on the film good or bad, and they'd fit perfectly in a good church discussion. I'm very surprised Tron is just the big Welcome sign and not part of the show.

    by CrazyGnome

    I feel frustrated that my brothers seem to keep their criticisms limited to Christianity. When we have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and others to go after too. There is enough hate to spread around, let's get to it. I'll go first. Since the Jewish religion is a fairy tale, then they have no right to go into Israel and force the Muslim population out. We can be anti-Israel and feel good about it now. Cause I am an atheist you see.

    What's wrong with Oklahoma? Nothing - I live there and it's awesome - in terms of where the film industry began in the U.S., it was here, prior to the unfortunate Dust Bowl that sent everyone packing West to California. But the spirit remains, and movies are a huge deal here, with lots of fresh, original talent continually cropping up.

    by UltraTron

    I think Jesus would probably remain completely silent since there's no scientific or historical evidence that he ever even existed. But if he did- Perhaps a carbon particle that was once part of his body has now become part of you and is now asking stupid questions through you. And yes this is what Jesus would have done to increase business at his church. Those trays arn't gonna fill themselves without some form of advertising.

    I'd be pissed if my church tithe went to this crap.

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    Science Fiction or any kind of fiction has no place in church whatsoever. CHOPPETH

  • BTW - God does exist and He loves all of you (quite being angry at your parents) This Tron thing at church has go to be the most absurd thing I've seen. These good-intentioned people are not being relevant, they are being trivial. The emergent church (look it up) will ultimately prove to be a very destructive element in Christianity. They are trying to make Christianity cool, hip, with it, now and relevant. God needs no help in being real and meeting the real needs of people. When you have serious questions or finally coming to the realization that there is a God and maybe he loves you unlike you're own father or mother or society, then it is then that you will need a real grounded church and not gimmicks to get you in. Awesome for a Comic-con but not for a place of worship. Over-and-out

    cozy - believe what you want

    by theBigE

    But your statement is simply not factually true. No reputable modern day historian shares your viewpoint - there is more evidence of a historical Jesus than there is of practically anyone else in antiquity. You can choose to believe the miracles or not.

  • ....and that's something that Atheists will NEVER understand. The only INTELLIGENT position is to announce that you HAVE NO IDEA what there is after death. To look for "evidence" you can hold in your hand - physical evidence of what happens to us after death (meaning the existence or non-existence of the soul) is the definition of absurdity. I put Atheists and the Faithful into the exact same camp, because they're both intellectually witless - the TRUTH is that nobody knows. Period. And later in that same run, when Kerouac says, "...and don't you know that God is Pooh-Bear?" he's saying that God is what you want it to be - and for Atheists, that God is No-God - which, when believed in with certitude, takes just as much faith as it does to believe in God with certitude. Now - watch the Atheists freak out - they always do when this is presented to them.

    by WriteForTheEdit

    As an agnostic (I'm not sure "God" exists and I don't think that we, as humans, can even really conceive of what "God" is anyway), I have no problem with faith, but do have problems with religions. And I'd describe the genesis of our universe, as we best understand it - all matter and energy bursting out of a point so small it could not be measured - as "miraculous."

    I want to go just for tron :)

  • I've been an atheist (a well-studied one at that) for just over twenty-five years. I'm confident in my beliefs. As such, I would have no problem visiting this or any other church if their was a reason for me to do so (in fact, I often visit churches, temples and cathedrals when traveling because they're old and make for some great pictures). I wouldn't be going to this church to be converted, or even listen. I'd just go to check out some Tron shit.

    Religion is for idiots...derpa

    by Mickster_Island

    It just seems a little obvious to be a sci-fi geek and be an atheist. Like think for yourself, y'know? Now they all resist punching their computers and scream, "A Christian is telling an atheist to think for himself! The irony is too much!" Thing is, I admit it's easy being a Christian in America. And I sympathize with those that feel maligned here because they're not Christians. But I didn't just join in because I'm stupid (which I'm not) or because I grew up in it (which I kinda did, but not really) or because it was easy or because it made sense (because let's face it, basing one's life around a homeless man who was murdered 2000 years ago is a little weird). I respect you - and I like to challenge you and I like to be challenged by you. Just please be nice. And I'll quit making assumptions about you (even though it does seem really obvious to bark about stupid Christians on a sci-fi message board).
