I’m a bit annoyed when somebody tries to convert me to their faith. Because although I know they probably do it for good reasons, wanting to give me a gift of eternal salvation and all that crap, from a perspective of a person that has spent (way too) much time getting to know religions of the world, the fact that god doesn’t exist is so obvious, and the absurdity of religions is so immense, that there’s no way back for me. It’s a waste of time to even look at it.
I have, however, found a way to spare myself all that conversional boredom. Ready?
Jesus has said: “Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.” (Mt 12, 32)
So, blaspheming against the Holy Spirit is enough to have no way back anymore? So that all the attempts of converting yourself, begging for forgiveness and doing penance, were as pointless within the christian theology as they as in reality? So that god’s infinite mercy suddenly finished for me? Count me in!
Okey then: The Holy Ghost is a dull, egoistic, racist, sadistic fucktard. Is that enough to have that ”salvation” topic behind me?
The Catechism points out six “sins against the Holy Spirit”:
- Presumption of God’s mercy
- Impugning the known truth
- Envy of other’s spiritual good
- Obstinacy in sin
- Final impenitence
Well, I don’t believe in god, or his mercy, or a “sin”, and I’m not planning to do any penance neither now or right before my death, so it’s hard for me to fulfil points 1, 4 and 6 in any way – but instead, my disbelief makes me qualify for irreversible, unconditional damnation according to points 2, 3 and 5.
There’s no hope for me then. You don’t have to bother me with any conversion attempts. Have a nice day! :)
