Jesus Died For Your Thoughtcrimes

I started reading a website which had been in the Google ads of a local Atheist group…

1. God Loves You!

The Bible says, “God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life”

The problem is that…

2. All of us have done, said, or thought things that are wrong. This is called sin, and our sins have separated us from God.

Something dawned on me and I started re-reading it again.

2. All of us have done, said, or thought things that are wrong. This is called thoughtcrime, and our thoughtcrimes have separated us from Big Brother.

The Bible says “All have committed thoughtcrime and fall short of the glory of Big Brother.” Big Brother is perfect and holy, and our thoughtcrimes separate us from Big Brother forever. The Bible says “The wages of thoughtcrime is death.”

Go check the site for yourself. The only words I have inter-changed are thoughtcrime and sin and God and Big Brother.

  1. There can too be thoughtcrimes! Every time someone says “I don’t believe in fairies” a fairy falls down dead!

    Scary. Seriously scary.

  2. Spooky… Christopher Hitchens brought up thoughtcrime in a debate last week. Saying that the monotheistic god of the major three religions was happy to convict his “subjects” of “thoughtcrime.”

  3. but you can’t apply the same morality to god as to people!

    Because… uh… he’s bigger than you?

    Yeah, good catch on that one. Pretty disturbing way to live a life, loving what should be scaring the crap out of you…

    Explain me something:
    A merciful, loving and Perfect God created man as his own image.
    But he made him imperfect. Then he submited him to the temptation of consciousness and knowledge. Then he blamed him for his failure, permanently treatening him and his whole children to eternal suffering.
    But don’t worry: …he loves you!

    Entertaining!

  6. That is a rediculous comparison, I could do the same with American civil and criminal law.

    “2. All of us have done, said, or thought things that are wrong. This is called thoughtcrime, and our thoughtcrimes have separated us from Big Brother.”

    I hate to be a stickler here on your language, but, well, I’m going to be… for just a moment. ‘Thoughtcrime,’ as you just put forth, encompasses actions, i.e.: ‘done’ and ‘said.’ Lumping them all together masks a deeper issue by allowing people to get offended that God would judge thoughts, but it’s immaterial. God judges your actions. That alone is enough for condemnation. After all, who among us could live perfectly? Thank God you have hope in Christ.

  8. “That is a rediculous comparison, I could do the same with American civil and criminal law.”

    Major differences, however…

    1. You’re still allowed to think and say whatever you want, so long as it doesn’t aim to incite violence.
    2. American criminal law is utilitarian, meaning deterrence, rehabilitation, safety of society, and that stuff are its aims. God is retributive. You don’t believe in him, you get thrown in a lake of fire. You can’t change once that happens, you just get eternal punishment. He doesn’t apply justice in this life to make society better, only when you die will he give punishment.

  9. I love Big Br.. I mean, I love God.

    You know….I’m not sure which is more entertaining.

    Your posts or the comments that come along with them…

    As I read this, I must laugh. Did this guy even one other post on this blog?? “Thank God you have hope in Christ.” Ah, no, she doesn’t. She’s this thing called an atheist. I know. Shocking.

    Cynically yours.
