The moment you discovered church to be a scam then nobody will advise you to drop out cos you'll automatically drop out by yourself.

Christianity turned out to be a place that discourages reasoning and common sense, I did not belong there.

and what makes you think you're not hypocritical


Or hyper critical, when you ignore the details of a book because you lack understanding of it.

Where exactly did Christ warn this



It is because people say what Christ did not say, that Christ is called a liar.

It is sad that you want so much to abandon the use of your brain, because a book written by people who thought the earth was flat, asked you believe things without evidence.

Reading the Bible
Re: Church Dropouts, Why Did You Stopped Going To Church? by Buliwyf: 8:08am On Nov 15, 2020
I gave it some serious thought before the decision. I gave myself 3 full years to study the pastors and their preaching and write everything down to see which really actually eventually works.

So I started noting down their prophecies for the year at the beginning of the year and comparing the percentages that actually work. At the end of the year I noticed they never got over 20% accurately. The much more insidious thing that made me aware of their dishonesty is that they seem to always remember the one or two prophecies that work but conveniently forget about the hundreds that failed. They will start bragging about the one that worked even though it is mostly a guessing game. Even the congregation seem to have forgotten the failed ones.

There was one that got my goat. It was in 2015. This guy has a popular church close to Omole estate in Lagos. When Buhari was sworn in, the guy was prophesying in the church that everybody should go and buy land for Agriculture because Agriculture was the next oil and many many billionaires will be made due to Agriculture and the new government. He made so many other predictions that day. It didn't take up to a year for dollar to become scarce and the entire economy to start feeling the heat. The guy pretended as if he didn't say anything till today.

I have stopped going to church since 2016. And the quality of my life has improved by orders of magnitude. I no longer fear witches or enemies hurting me. I no longer spend hours reading bibles and moronic religious texts. Instead I have spent those time acquiring knowledge reading books on science and history, my job and the quality of life and connections have widened since then.

Looking back, I should have stopped going to church much more sooner. The reason most people go to church is because of economic deprivation. If the economy was well, you won't remember witches or enemies.

MrPresident1:
Donald Trump is king of America in the order of Anointed god-kings like Cyrus of Persia, both named by name in the Bible. Only an anointed god-king could have built the temple of God in Jerusalem.

Solomon did it. Cyrus did it. The Donald did it too! Jesus will do it!

This conspiracy against The Donald will unravel; the Donald will have a great victory, he will trump his enemies, he will triumph over all of them. The voice of victory will be loud and total and complete, without any equivocation. It will be clear to everyone that the Donald has triumphed over all his enemies.

President Joe Biden's tenure is not found in the Bible. Sleepy Joe will not be president.

1 Corinthians 15:52
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.


1 Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:


When President Trump triumphs and blows his trump and it becomes clear as daylight there is now no longer any opposition whatsoever to his kingship, rulership and and dominion, and that of America over the world too, then we will hear from heaven.

We will hear the trump of God.

2 Samuel 22:14-16
The LORD thundered from heaven, and the most High uttered his voice.
15 And he sent out arrows, and scattered them; lightning, and discomfited them.
16 And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the LORD, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils.


Psalms 18:13
The LORD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire.


Everything before the end of this generation [of the sun].

Matthew 24:34
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

If I say I believe my wife loves me for example, it means that from her actions and inactions, I have been able to deduce affection. My wife could acting and deceiving me, who knows, that is why it is belief not fact.

In other areas of life we form beliefs based on a track record of previous action.

This is very different from Christian belief where truth is claimed with absolute certainty, with no verifiable record of previous action.

First off the bible is a record

And like every other record we can either choose to believe it or not. It's a choice

But because you don't believe a record doesn't mean that those who choose to are brainless. There's a limit to what our brains can do, or what we use our brains for, isn't that a fact.


Now based on what record do you belief that the absolutely certainty which the christian call truth is unbelievable and a lie

Based on your absolute lack of evidence, you Christians may treat your Bible as a book of facts but it only just a book of claims with no evidence in reality.

You don't see reasonable people making arguments against scientific facts like the true shape of the earth (not flat by the way) or the law of gravity, these do not require blind belief like your entire Bible does.

The same reasonable humans that would murder without a just cause, and take from the weak without mercy or thought.

Like any "reasonable human" would lack pride to admit if ever they were proven wrong.

You act like the reasonable man is perfect and infallible.

Let me ask you how you searched for the evidence and have proof of what you claim to be a reasonable view that what they claim is a lie?


Or are you ajudging that everyone who reasons with you or like you is reasonable, and does who don't are unreasonable.

What evidence is there of gravity when birds fly

Let me educate you on birds and gravity cool

In the United States, a dead goose weighing over 5kg fell from the sky. This poor goose shows us that flying birds can fall from the sky under the force of gravity, just like everything with mass.

The larger the mass (or how much something weighs), the larger the force of gravity. This goose fell from the sky because it was killed while flying. The other geese flying with it did not fall because they were doing a few important things to fight the effects of gravity.

To stay up, the bird must overcome gravity with a force called “lift”. Lift is a very active force, made by moving the wing at speed through air. It causes the bird to rise upwards.

To create lift, the bird holds the front part of its wing slightly higher than the back part. As the air passes over the wing, (from front to back), the air underneath is pushed downwards. This pushes the wing (and bird) upwards. A bird’s wings are just the right shape to build this upward force.

Even a dead body floats in water but the principle of gravity would state birds have to generate enough force to match their weight to achieve a lift. But not all flying creatures obey such a silly rule because it doesn't exist. It was made up my man to explain what he had a limit in explaining. You can't get 70% of something theoretically and claim it 100% true when their scientific records and statements that prove otherwise.
