Something that really bothers me is the lack of responsibility Christians are required to show for their actions. The whole idea is that as long as you believe in Christ, no matter what you have done, you will get into heaven. As long as you get away with crimes while here on earth, you will never EVER be held accountable for what you have done.
What does this mean? It means God doesn't really give a crap if you follow his commandments or live as Jesus has asked. He's going to make sure that everything is warm and cozy up in heaven for you and all you have to do is believe. This is utterly ridiculous!
I'm really not surprised that those who are Christians still commit crimes of epic proportions, ie. Hitler and the majority of US prison populations. They are essentially given a 'get out of jail free' ticket for all eternity in the afterlife! There are no long term consequences for their actions, so where's the motivation to act good?
Now, I'm thinking to myself, isn't this the same type of argument used against atheists? That atheists are evil because they have no motivation, no real reason to act kindly?
Maybe this can be used as a response; to point out how faulty this argument is. No one needs to be coerced into being a good person, no matter what they believe.
