So I went and made a Wish List for myself that you can see at the
bottom of my Updates page. I thought long and hard about
actually posting such a list. I don't want anyone to ever think I'm
lookin' for handouts, because I ain't. This is a list of things that I
need help with for the good of the site. I'll be updating it whenever
something comes up that I can't seem to handle on my own.
Christ, did you see the trailer for that movie Jesus Camp? A couple people brought it to my
attention today on Myspace and I am fuckin' spooked. Tell me where
it's showin' in NYC and I'll go there all dressed up and write the
review it deserves. Oh! That reminds me. I am in search of a camera
crew for occasions such as that. Cameras that can follow me to such an
event and later edit the footage. Let me know if you're in NYC and
I'm workin' on more Amazing Strangers,
Sheeples, dress up pages, hate mail, and a long list of other things.
By the way, it looks like I've been beat out of the #1 spot for the
Google search for "Jesus" by Wikipedia. It was bound to happen. That
site's blowin' everybody away. Goddamn site, voted me out of their logs 2 to 1, because I'm a "shameless
self-promoter?" What am I supposed to do? NOT promote myself?
Anyhow, bastards beat me out of Google, but I'll survive. Now I'd like
to conclude this with a little story that somebody emailed me today.
You'll be shocked!
Photo interpretation by me
This is a true story of
something that happened just a few years ago at USC. There was a
professor of philosophy there who was a deeply committed atheist. His
primary goal for one required class was to spend the entire semester to
prove that God couldn't exist.
His students were always afraid to
argue with him because of his impeccable logic. Sure, some had argued
in class at times, but no one had ever really gone against him because
of his reputation.
At the end of every semester on the
last day, he would say to his class of 300 students, "If there is
anyone here who still believes in Jesus, stand up!"
In twenty years, no one had ever stood
up. They knew what he was going to do next. He would say, "Because
anyone who believes in God is a fool. If God existed, he could stop
this piece of chalk from hitting the ground and breaking. Such a simple
task to prove that He is God, and yet He can't do it."
And every year, he would drop the chalk
onto the tile floor of the classroom and it would shatter into a
All of the students would do nothing
but stop and stare.
Most of the students thought that God
couldn't exist. Certainly, a number of Christians had slipped through,
but for 20 years, they had been too afraid to stand up.
Well, a few years ago there was a
freshman who happened to enroll.
He was a Christian, and had heard the stories about his professor.
He was required to take the class for his major, and he was afraid. But
for three months that semester, he prayed every morning that he would
have the courage to stand up no matter what the professor said, or what
the class thought.
Nothing they said could ever shatter
his faith...he hoped.
Finally, the day came! The professor
said, "If there is anyone here who still believes in God, stand up!"
The professor and the class of 300 people looked at him, shocked, as he
stood up at the back of the classroom.
The professor shouted, "You FOOL!!! If
God existed, he would keep this piece of chalk from breaking when it
hit the ground!"
He proceeded to drop the chalk, but as
he did, it slipped out of his fingers, off his shirt cuff, onto the
pleat of his pants, down his leg, and off his shoe. As it hit the
ground, it simply rolled away unbroken. The professor's jaw dropped as
he stared at the chalk. He looked up at the young man, and then ran out
of the lecture hall.
The young man who had stood, proceeded
to walk to the front of the room and shared his faith in Jesus for the
next half hour. 300 students stayed and listened as he told of God's
love for them and of His power through Jesus.

this Miracle Chalk
what is your reason for this site?
It's a silly game for fun.
Oh! And it's also meant to bring down the entire
Christian religion to its knees.
|“what part of love... are you against?”
what part of love your neighbor the same way you
want to be loved, are you against?
The part that includes the spreading of lies in
the name of love. That I don't include in the "Love thy neighbor" rule.
The truth supersedes politeness.
|“dont' listen to anyone people will misslead you”
well i hope that GOD opens your eyes- dont' listen
to anyone people will misslead you -be quiet get alone and ask him to
show you whats real - when you really want to know he will tell you. he
knows your heart - and when you really want to know he will tell you
whats real and whats not. be blessed and take care
I've already done all of that. I went through that
process and asked myself what I truly believe to be true, and science
far won out over talking animals, guardian angels and big evil demons in
the sky. My own logic is a far better thing to place my trust in than
faith in something for which there is no proof or logic.
Please trust your logic. Faith is empty, and even
|“if there was gold in the back yard you would dig
till you found it.”
where ever there is something created there is a
creator. the very creation around you is proof . how old are you? and
again god knows your heart. if there was gold in the back yard you
would dig till you found it. go after him like hes gold. he will make
himself known. we could keep going back and forth on this - i'm not
triing to convince you - my job is to speak his word - plant the seed -
and wait for it to grow. if you ever want to pray or be prayed for let
me know- I love to pray. take care.
Yes, but there is no gold in your back yard. You
can dig until your hands bleed, but it's not going to make that gold
appear. You have a backyard. Go ahead and try it. You'll see what I
And I would prefer you don't pray for me. When
people do I take it as them wishing me to that awful place you call
heaven, where people mourn those who are in hell. Where mothers are
separated from their non Christian children and everyone cries every
single day for all eternity for their fellow human beings who suffer
forever in an ocean of fire for the rest of time. I want no part of
that horrible place. Unlike you, my greed for riches and feeling great
does not outweight the love I have for people, even if they aren't
Christians. Sorry. There's no such thing as paradise if loved ones go
to hell... unless you have no heart at all.
|“i can't keep writing to someone who is unwilling to
I said search for him like it is gold - you talk
this way because you don't know the bible. now i do love you more then
myself. - prayer you can not control - take care - i can't keep writing
to someone who is unwilling to hear - i've done what God would have me
do. if there comes a day you want to hear the words that give life you
know my address.
No. I talk this way because I DO know the bible. I
know that your God is the equivalent of hoping there's gold buried in
your back yard, no matter how unrealistic it seems. YOU don't address
my issues because YOU know that there is no answer to how there can be
a paradise for you while the people you care about burn in hell fire.
YOU didn't address my issue, and you act as if I am unwilling.
I was not joking at all when I said you would have
to be heartless to imagine a paradise for yourself while others suffer
eternally. What a horrible fate you have waiting for you. It just goes
to show your feelings about your fellow man. If there comes a day when
you are willing to address this you know my address. Until then you are
considered heartless by me.
|“in the end he is all that matters!”
bob first off i'm not heartless-everyone has a
choice-Our Father GOD gave you free will-if one goes to hell it's there
own doing.I do feel pain- pain for the people who refuse to bow down
now- because they will bow and say he is lord. the only way one doesn't
get to paradise is to refuse to admit they can do nothing on there own.
you can't make a heart-lung -hand or anything else. you cant make a
tree. you talk simple. the reason i said i can't go on writing is there are to many people around me that are not
saved-family-friends and strangers, and i want all to get to heaven.
you want someone to fuss back and forth with you. i'm sure you can find
better things to do with your time then to try to get me to see things
that are of death.
I am about my FATHER GODS work and thats it. i
have all the time i want. if i praise him i live- if i live i praise
him. but then you know that because you let me know you know the bible.
i don't know what you have been taught- i ask how old you were -you
didn't say-but if you would just throw away everything you think you
know and start over you would get somewhere. i feel for you. i said for
years there wasn't a God- but when presented to me i knew i was wrong-
and sad i am that i wasted all those years on me. you see if one is not
happy then it's because all they can see is their self. - think about
it your not geting what you want-what you think you derserve- or
someone is not treating you the way you think they should. i don't
worry about me i care for others- no i don't think i am perfect far far
far from it. BUT christian means christlike- perfect - i want to take
theexample (CHRIST)given to me and follow it. you have free will and
cando and be what you want. so with all this said i think i coverd what
you said i was tring not to. take care and be blessed. one more thing i
aim to please my father.
if it troubles others then so be it- in the end he is all that matters!
You have got to be kidding me. You're saying that
you have no problem going to sleep at night because somehow you've
convinced yourself that non Christians deliberately reject these
beliefs? And this is enough for you?!? You believe that a Hindu family
on the other side of the world deliberately rejects your Christian
beliefs and all of them deserve eternal suffering and anguish in a
fiery pit of molten lava!??!?! And you dare say you're not
heartless?!?!? I am appalled by your beliefs and your, what looks to
be, self-induced ignorance so that you don't have to think about
other's well being. How can you be this way?!?!?!
There are times when I think about those planes
crashing into those buildings and I can't shake the horror, imagining
what those final moments of those passengers must have been, or the men
and women trapped on those top floors plummeting to their deaths. The
hopelessness and helplessness terrifies me! And Hell is that times
infinity, and it sounds as if you're saying "They deserve it." Do you
even consider what it is you believe in?? Have you ever even for a
moment thought of what it means to worship a god who tolerates endless
oceans of human suffering for those who believed something else? IT'S
ABSOLUTE INSANITY! And I for one could NEVER appreciate even the most
spectacular paradise if I knew that the human beings I love so much
were burning forever. I don't even want to think about how you could
have it with family members in hell.
You know what's even more frightening about your
beliefs? There's an anxiousness for the end of the world. If nuclear
bombs started racing across the sky you'd see a silver lining in it.
This would be the beginning of the End Of Times, and your Jesus' Second
Coming! What sort of "good god" would hatch such a plan – revealing
that your most glorious day will come after we all destroy ourselves???
My head pounds when I consider that Christians in our government with
their hands next to the button think the same way you do!
Elizabeth. I find your beliefs revolting. You can
bury your head in the sand about what you think your beliefs mean, but
you cannot deny what I'm stating here. I have no sympathy at all for
you or the god you imagine who can build a paradise on the backs of
people's eternal suffering.
I am a 37 year old man, and I am grotesquely
appalled by the claims you have made here today. For Christ's sake,
think about this god you bow down to!

even after I die).
