To be or not to be a Christian

30 October 2012, 10:01
TO BE OR NOT TO BE A CHRISTIAN

My tally on articles is floating around 188 plus 3 which is waiting in the line. My aim is 200 and then I will retire once and for all without doubt and with an open mind.  One reaches a point where the insults and destructive comments eventually hit’ the target: the logical answer is to ignore it but when it becomes too personal then ignoring does no longer serve a purpose. I have often wondered what goes on in the minds of some of the aspirant trolls. In fact the trolls have also reached a point of saturation.. That includes all of them from our beloved  D. W to the artistic trapeze tricks of C. G, who is, by the way , on a trip across Africa changing his name as he changes states, the hypocrisy of my most irritating  Tw. who has nothing to say yet says it..  Tentatively. But never to the point. (It is a direct result of  association with our friend that my faith in God, Jesus Christ has died and he is selling his religion in a rather crude and anti-Christian way. I want no part of it.    

I  grew up in a family which had Christian precepts and attended a  Seven Day Adventist church and community yet never in all that time saw the depredations of Christianity  sully the minds of those observed as lesser. I am happy to be what I am with out the God which is propagated by every church goer who  sees him/herself as the adjutant officer of God. I have seen a million adjutants but never God. Why, because all those Christians have killed their god.      

We have reached a state where every second article has a bone to pick with some or other God  yet when push comes to shove the Deity is pushed to the back ground and only the author remains where he/she does not belong.     

Let us get back to the point: I think the second worst experience I have had on these blogs and articles is the death of a person, celebrity, who I had known as a youth. A troll in the making actually made a huge joke of this person: Suzanne York. According to the rites of the religion an apology (forgiveness) should be forth coming but can I actually expect that on News 24  Not so much as News 24 but more the riff-raff that aligns itself with their own ego.  NO,     

I, due to precepts of decency,  am forced by dint of humiliation, have to veer away or stand and fight.: I have chosen the latter because I have noticed the trolls tend to retreat when they find themselves in hot water. Standing and fighting means changing your name and profile.  I

  remain  Zion Pay. As for the trolls, there is a NEWS 24 policy which  prohibits the operation of trolling. It will be found on the bottom of most pages and falls under TERMS &  CONDITIONS. The reaction is fast.    Should I purchase an article I would expect the seller to guarantee the article comes up to the expectations as set out on the guarantee. When a Christian or other believer sells his religion to me I would still expect a guarantee the religion  which matches the benefits I am supposed to  receive from accepting the religion.  Sadly the latter very seldom occurs. It would be highly suspect if I accepted the religion of a person who knocks on my door and  is so drunk he can hardly stand up. That has happened .    

This article is not intended to debase any religion or persons. What is written here is my opinion and experiences.

I thought Zuma should have known better that a suspension is a blessing in overalls. This time they are red. You give these people time to consult political expects. When EFF come back in parliament they will come back much stronger than they were before suspension. Read more...
