Saw a bunch of these characters telling everyone in line at the Paul McCartney concert that we were going to hell for seeing a secular concert.

I just don't get the:

You won't be accepted into heaven for doing something that I used to do 10x over because I stopped doing it and I'm now preaching against it.

I've never encountered people like these. Maybe I just don't know the past lives of people who say I'm going to hell for my transgressions.

The one that gets me, though, is that in Lafayette, I'm this infamous guy, this career trouble-maker, but the continued crimes of the "faithful" (corruption, adultery, intimidation, fraud, etc. etc. etc.) are worse than anything I have ever done.

To be fair, that's not what they are saying. I'm certainly no church-goer and I don't know what to "believe," but I do know they are trying to convey that you have the same opportunity they had...repent, accept Jesus as your savior and spend eternity in heaven. It's not about what you have done; rather, your sencerity in turning away from it.

I always felt that way...never trusted them. While some people can change, most of these losers will always be losers...anyone can say 'Praise Jesus", but rings hollow with a lot of these types...

True, but if you had approached those same people with the same rhetoric that they are now preaching (before their own coming to Jesus moment) they would have probably tried to kick your ass..


Um...presumably someone did come to them with that rhetoric, or they wouldn't credit Jesus with saving them.

I find it hilarious how offended people get about Jesus saves but dopes throwing red paint for PETA are acceptable

Because it feels better to tell themselves messing up their life was all part of Jesus' plan, and all is forgiven, rather than to accept reality.

It's a great way to cheat someone out of acknowledging their own strength and dedication to changing their behavior.

An addict is an addict. One addiction to another, in this case it's worshiping Jesus.
