After today, I’m not going to waste my breath on loud- and filthy-mouthed fools like you. Only people apathetic to or ignorant of religion would advocate religious tolerance. There is one God, one deity: Jesus Christ. All others are no gods at all, just demons or fantasies. Tolerance of all religions and all gods is mental, moral, and spiritual insanity. It is soul suicide.
So you’re not gonna “waste your breath” on me, huh? Well it looks like you already did. There is only one god? How do you know? Dont’ tell me it says so in the Bible. That is not a valid argument. Unless it was written by aliens, but that’s a different story. Seriously, you truly know nothing about the real world. How is it “soul suicide” to be tolerant of other faiths? (Again, don’t tell me the Bible says so, I want ACTUAL proof.)
Why do you think Aslan can represent any ‘God’? In his personality and history, as shown in the Narnia books, Aslan is none other than Jesus Christ. No one else fits. For example, did Mohammed or Allah rise from the dead? No. That Aslan can represent either one shows your ignorance. It is also gross blasphemy to Islam.
Why do I think Aslan can represent any god? Because whether you like it or not, Christianity isn’t the only faith there is. Maybe the things Aslan did in those movies and books can represent an important thing some other diety did. What if Aslan’s sacrifice symbolizes what humanity has done to Mother Nature’s natural earth? What if Aslan’s wisdom represents the wisdom that Prince Siddhartha held in his time? Or maybe Aslan could just simply represent a father figure who takes care of his children? There’s a lot of ways you can see Aslan.
C. S. Lewis knew what he was doing. You cannot rewrite or misinterpret him. Just because you want to make Aslan someone other than Jesus doesn’t mean you can or should. You don’t know the real Aslan because you don’t know and love the real Jesus. That’s your loss and stupidity.
You’re right. I cannot rewrite C.S. Lewis, nor can I misinterpret him. But that doesn’t mean I’m not allowed to portray Aslan as some other religious leader. Who says I can’t do that? They’re MY thoughts. So you’re saying that I don’t know Aslan because I don’t know and love the real Jesus? Are you serious? You know nothing about me. You know absolutely nothing of what I’ve been through. Look, you’re right that I’m not a Christian. But I actually used to be. And I used to believe just like you, but then I woke up and realized that it wasn’t me. But that’s beside the point. You don’t get to define my life. You don’t get to define my faith. You don’t get to have any say in my life whatsoever. Just because I’m not a Christian, doesn’t make me any less human. How would you feel if a group of people came up to you and said things like “Christianity is false. You are worshiping a false god. (insert diety here) is the way to go.” just for being a freakin Christian. Would you like that? I don’t think so.
Jesus Christ said he is the only way to heaven (John 14:6). He is not tolerant of other religions and other gods. They are a moral affront to him and his saints. Jesus is jealous for his glory, that due to him as the only Son of God. Tolerance is idolatry and it robs him of glory.
One day very soon, the world will not be able to sit on the religious fence anymore, advocating neutrality and tolerance. One day everyone must choose – the antichrist or Jesus Christ? Everyone includes you. So make a choice. Kill your tolerance and apathy.
I don’t care what your Jesus is tolerant of or not. I don’t care if he’s a jealous asshole that can’t take it if people disagree with him. Tolerance is NOT idolatry and it does nothing to your faith. People of other faiths do not affect you. They do not hurt you and they certainly have nothing to do with you. You don’t even know them. You don’t know what they’ve been through. You know nothing.
I don’t care that you believe in only one god. That’s up to you. But when you go around calling other faiths “false” and claiming that people worship “idols” you are being an ignorant, hateful, close-minded bigot. When people fight back, you have no right to call yourself the victim. You are not the victim, you are the oppressor. If your god really is a hateful teenage asshole like you portray him to be, then I will NEVER be like you and I will NEVER serve him. If I’m going to “hell” for it, then so be it. I’d rather be in a loving hell than a hateful heaven. I will be with my Savior, Toothless either way.
I don’t know what ‘savior’ you serve but it isn’t Jesus Christ. He came here to proclaim one true faith - him (Christianity). All other faiths are false and all other gods are idols. If you don’t agree with Jesus on basic Christian truth, you are not saved and you are not going to heaven.
I hope you get a rude awakening. I hope you rot in the hell you deserve. And it is NOT loving. It is eternal fire and brimstone. You will be MISERABLE.
If you’re trying to scare me into your faith, it’s not gonna work. I’ve been tormented like that for three long years by people like you that one day, I woke up and realized that this “hell” of yours is a terrible threat. Even if I do end up in hell, I won’t be able to feel it. I’ll be DEAD! You can’t feel anything when you’re dead. I will give you props for trying though. It was actually pretty funny and infuriating at the same time. With those “threats” of yours, at least I know that there are people older than me who act like brats. I wish you a nice day.
A holy fear of God and hell is exactly what you need. But you chose to cast it off - along with shame and guilt for your sins. I pray God scares you silly one day so you will see and receive the truth. Until then, no one can get through to you. Why should they even bother?
And by the way, you won’t be ‘spiritually dead’ in hell - not really. Everyone will be resurrected bodily one day, Christians first and then sinners. The Christians will enjoy heaven, the sinners endure hell. You will be conscious in hell, not dead or asleep.
