Christianity makes you immoral.

Christianity makes you immoral. 

The ancient but wise Christian philosopher Pelagius (**) pointed this out long ago when he said “the Christian version of salvation promoted by Augustine, leads to "moral laxity" as believers are "saved" regardless of their actions as these have no consequences in relation to their salvation.” Jerome emerged as one of the chief critics of Pelagius, because, according to him, sin was a part of human nature and we couldn't help but sin. Augustine, Calvin and Luther established the Christian teachings (doctrines) of “original sin” and that of “being born in totally depravity”. 

Imagine a world with out religion and very one was an atheist. What would it be like? It is too soon to tell, may be in a hundred years from now, we would know. My experience of atheism has been good. I am not a Satan worshipper or a God hater (as they do not exist) or a murderer, rapist, adulterer, etc and have yet to experience the negatives and horrors of atheism suggested by cowardly and jealous Christians.

They are cowards; because they do not have the guts to dump their crutch and walk by sight, they prefer to walk by faith in the unseen and unknown as if it was a virtue; jealous, because atheists have a much simpler lifestyle, whereas theirs is not.
