Religulous

Posted 22 February 2009 - 12:05 AM

Religulous. If you haven't already seen it, I highly recommend it. The movie brings up many good points/questions; many of which I have come up with on my own over the past few years, although probably in a less eloquent or funny way. It's a funny and though-provoking documentary that I would recommend to any rational, thinking person. Check it out.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I haven't seen it, but from what I've read about it, it sounds a lot like Ben Stein's Expelled but with a atheistic twist. And the only reason I watched it is because my parents wanted to when they visited one evening.

And here we go:

1. Poster makes obvious troll

2. Poster 2 cannot recognize obvious troll or decides they wish to fight anyway.

3. ?

4. Profit!!!!

5. thread gets closed due to excessive personal insults.

I'll be back at step 5.

You haven't seen it but the only reason you watched it is because your parent's wished too? That was confusing. ;)

It's not about Christianity. It's about religion in general. He talks to some Christians, Jews, and Muslims. He also talks about Scientology (not to any because they probably would not allow it) and to some ex Mormons. There's also a church based around Cannibis in Amsterdam and one based around a guy who says he's the second coming of Jesus in Florida (He has a large Hispanic church of followers). He also talks about his own religious past and speaks against Atheism for similar reasons as religion. It's just a fun, interesting movie. If you don't like the message, no problem: don't watch. But I gather there are many interested in seeing it and probably many more who haven't spoken up.

Edited to add emphasis.

I know what the movie is about, I bet it's awesome. But that doesn't make my "Nothing like making fun of Christianity on a bad day" any less valid. I can't wait to see it ^_^

Some things are a little Inconsistent:

This is from ONE Book alone:

Quote

JN 1:1, 10:30 Jesus and God are one.
JN 14:28 God is greater than Jesus.

JN 1:1 Jesus was God incarnate.
AC 2:22 Jesus was a man approved by God.

JN 3:17, 8:15, 12:47 Jesus does not judge.
JN 5:22, 5:27-30, 9:39, AC 10:42, 2CO 5:10 Jesus does judge.

JN 5:22 God does not judge.
RO 2:2-5, 3:19, 2TH 1:5, 1PE 1:17 God does judge.

JN 5:24 Believers do not come into judgement.
MT 12:36, RO 5:18, 2CO 5:10, HE 9:27, 1PE 1:17, JU 1:14-15, RE 20:12-13 All persons (including believers) come into judgement.

JN 5:31 Jesus says that if he bears witness to himself, his testimony is not true.
JN 8:14 Jesus says that even if he bears witness to himself, his testimony is true.

JN 5:38-47 Men have a choice as to whether or not to receive Jesus.
JN 6:44 No one can come to Jesus unless he is drawn by the Father.

JN 7:38 Jesus quotes a statement that he says appears in scripture (i.e., the OT).
(No such statement is found in the OT.)

JN 10:27-29 None of Jesus' followers will be lost.
1TI 4:1 Some of them will be lost.

JN 12:31 The Devil is the ruler (or "prince") of this world.
1CO 10:26, RE 1:5 Jesus is the ruler of kings--the earth is his.

JN 12:32 Jesus implies that all persons will be saved.
1TI 2:3-4, 2PE 3:9 God wants all to be saved.
JN 12:40, AC 2:21, 2:39, RO 9:27, 10:13 Some will not be saved.
RE 14:1-4 Heaven will be inhabited by 144,000 virgin men (only?).

JN 13:36 Peter asks Jesus where he is going.
JN 14:5 Thomas does the same.
JN 16:5 Jesus says that none of them have asked him where he is going.

JN 17:12 Jesus has lost none of his disciples other than Judas.
JN 18:9 Jesus has lost none, period.

JN 17:12 Mentions a "son of perdition" as appearing in scripture (meaning the OT).
(Note: There is no "son of perdition" mentioned in the OT.)

JN 18:37 Jesus came into the world to bear witness to the truth.
RO 1:18-20 The truth has always been evident.

JN 20:9 Jesus quotes a statement that he says appears in scripture (meaning the OT). (No such statement is found in the OT.)

JN 20:22 In his first resurrection appearance before the assembled disciples, Jesus gives them the Holy Spirit.
AC 1:3-5, AC 2:1-4 The Holy Spirit was received much later (on Pentecost.)

JN 21:25 The world probably could not contain the books if all that Jesus did were to be recorded.
AC 1:1 The author of Acts has already written about all that Jesus began to do.
