Cosmic Jewish zombies and Christianity

[Christianity is] The belief that a cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

My two cents

This modern-day statement is slanted, yet it unwittingly fulfils and validates an observation made in the Bible: “…the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” (1 Corinthians 2:14-15).

It’s time to turn the tables, with thanks to this citation in the first Journal of Christian Reconstruction:

To hold that a frog can be turned into a prince is to believe in a fairy tale. To hold that a frog (or some other amphibious creature) in 300 million years becomes a prince is called science.

  1. Quotes like these are helpful for us Christians though. Every missionary has to consider the best way to approach people of various nationalities, cultures, etc. because everyone’s going to have a different perspective. The ancient Romans thought that Christians were atheists (because they didn’t worship idols) and cannibals. It should be no surprise that similar misconceptions keep unbelievers today from taking the faith seriously too.
