Quote# 120915

During the Middle Ages in Europe, most people were Christian and had morals because the government helped keep them on the straight and narrow path. I'm willing to bet a high percentage went to heaven. In America, with freedom of religion and freedom of the press, people are allowed to teach whatever Satanic lies they want to teach and as a result so many people are deceived and living ungodly lives. I bet most will go to hell. That's what I'd call a disaster.

During the Middle Ages in Europe, most people were NOT Christians. They were either Catholics (pagans) or other satanists. Only few were Christians, e.g. early Baptists, Waldensian, etc. So vast majority of people back then were unElect and accordingly went directly to hell.

In the name of the Lord,

Nobody gives a fuck what you think Jerry.

objectively, the average person in the west enjoy life quality and luxuries royals in the middle ages couldn't even dream on. meanwhile, there still no proof for the afterlife.

I think I pass on your offer.

Is that true, Samir? I hadn't heard the latest census reports from either heaven or hell. Until then, why don't we discuss something meaningful, such as the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin.

OK Jerry, I'm going to (regret this) bite.
Given that Historians trace the earliest Baptist church back to 1609 does that mean for one and a half millennia no one was saved. In your view of course, in reality there are no gods.

the government helped keep them on the straight and narrow path.

"The government"? "Helped"? Not exactly a history buff, are you?

8/4/2016 5:09:01 AM


If you think the Middle Ages were a time of what you would call "morals", you maybe want to read up on (among many other things) medieval bath houses…

8/4/2016 5:14:24 AM


You failed history as badly as Jerry fails history and other religions and the Constitution and reality itself. In Dark Ages Christians were killing non Christians and wrong kind of Christians were killed too. It wasn't more moral. Demonstrably wrong

"During the Middle Ages in Europe, most people were Christian and had morals because the government helped keep them on the straight and narrow path."

It's the witch burning and inquisitioning that did it.

Most of these people were acting as Christians in order to avoid being stabbed. Their faith was not legit because you can't get true faith by threatening people.

During the Middle Ages in Europe, the church literally ran brothels and sold get out of hell free cards. Yeah, that sounds like a very Christian era to me.

Bullshit. You can't legislate morality. And I'd bet $10 that the person who wrote this is all in favor of "smaller government."

Thinking Allowed

@ Jerry

It was also those same Catholics who were killing off anybody who didn't claim Christianity. Also, the Protestants (those who you say are Christian) came from Catholics you dolt. Of course you're an uneducated faker from the get-go. Try learning something about your own religion for once.

According to Jerry, only the image he sees in the mirror is christian; even Jesus himself was not a christian.

The Lord

Jerry, I am commanding you to quit using my name from this point on. You are making me look bad. Every time a potential follower of me sees your post, they think "Man, if that's what it's like to follow The Lord, I don't think I want to do this." You are making it harder for me to do my work in your world.

In The Name of Me
The Lord

The government kept them on the "straight and narrow path"?

Sorry to be pedantic about this, but the phrase is a redundancy from your own bibble. It is the "strait (not straight) and narrow path". As in the phrase that comes from Matthew 7:14. Jeezus was using a time-honored Hebrew way of teaching, which was to say the same thing twice (for emphasis) using synonyms or closely related words to reinforce the point.

Uh huh, sure, that's totes how it was back in the day... So then we should go back to having religion imposed upon an entire population? So long as it's the "right" religion, of course, hm? That always works out super fantastic.

I hear Uganda enforces Christianity. Go move there. Leave the rest of us hellbound heathens alone. we don't want your "salvation", especially not if it's done by force. And what kind of a god accepts coerced "love" anyway? Is your god that pathetic that he must force people through sword and executioner axe to love and honor him?

8/4/2016 11:15:04 AM


Most medieval people's interaction with "government" consisted of tax collection and occasional forced labor. They went to church infrequently, like the colonial Americans. Their brand of Christianity included a lot of tales from what we now call Apocrypha. You really don't know what they got up to when the sun went down.

You do know when the Middle Ages happened in Europe, right? The people barely knew of the existence of the America back then.

As that god of yours is omnipresent, he must of course have put lots and lots of info about the Americas, the Far East and the Oceania, in that Bible of yours, right? Right?
If not, that's a definite disaster...

8/4/2016 1:14:22 PM


Don't listen to 'em, Jerry. I find you highly entertaining, and I don't take you seriously for a second.

"During the Middle Ages in Europe, most people were Christian and had morals."

Quick quiz: One would be more likely to have their teeth knocked down their throat:

A. In the present day
B. In the Middle Ages
C. I have No Clue
D. Both B and C.

Hail Eris!

I was going to comment on the quote but damned if it ain't funny seeing Jerry keep claiming that Christianity didn't exist until hundreds of years after Christ's death.

Did the royalty and nobility know about these governments?

8/4/2016 4:30:55 PM


Yes, Jerry, do edumakate all us heatherns. Enlighten us with what you learned from your mail-order doctorate from Billy-Bob Pigfucker's Bible College & Lube Rack.
