Yesterday, I wrote a post about deaf pastor turned atheist Justin Vollmar. Wasting no time, the Christian hate mongers have taken to the internet to attack, disparage, and shit all over Justin. I suspect he knew this would happen. It ALWAYS happens when a person of some notoriety deconverts. Five years after my deconversion, and I still face the wrath of God’s holy warriors. Justin is in for a long, difficult ride. I wish it could be different, but Evangelicals won’t allow it. Justin pissed where they live and they aim to make sure he knows how offended they are.
Denise, a Calvinistic, Fundamentalist, Evangelical member of a special group of Christians who think God has given them the gift of discernment, has leveled her double-barrel shotgun at Justin. In classic Denise fashion, she pulled both triggers at the same time, caring not what she said. Here is an excerpt of what Denise had to say:
1Jn 2:18 Children, it is the last hour; and just as you heard that antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have appeared; from this we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not really of us; for if they had been of us, they would have remained with us; but they went out, so that it would be shown that they all are not of us….
Here’s a story of a deaf “Christian” “pastor” who studied himself away from The Faith and from God. Interestingly, he’s going to continue his “online church” of “atheist” skepticism, which is at best, hypocritical, at worst, mocking. But whatever. I guess he thinks he’s being cute or clever.
My response after reading the article was this:
I wouldn’t want to be that mocker before the thrice Holy God of Israel! But he does show what happens when people study themselves away from the truth. Feeding on every man’s opinion about the Bible instead of the Bible was one of the biggest mistakes he made and proved he was not of Christ b/c he didn’t hear the Shepherd’s voice in Scripture but instead was more interested in man’s voice….and THEN complained about the diversity of interpretations, at that! What a fool. Only a fool says there is no God.
I’m willing to bet that he’s an evolutionist too—if so,is he going to quit that b/c of the diversity of theories there too? No, consistency isn’t his problem, nor is hypocrisy (that he sees in everyone ELSE–except he was the hypocrite, like all “atheists” who claim to have once been Christians).
No, his own unbelief that was the problem the whole time. A goat trying to unify goats and sheep just doesn’t work. Darkness can’t shed any light and the blind can’t lead anyone anywhere because they are incapable of seeing where they are going. Simply put, the man could not offer anyone anything of value because he didn’t have anything of value to give. That is to say, no one in falsehood can offer the truth; one without the Gospel cannot give it to those in need.
It’s a shame. Because his handicap is the least of his problems. He’s dead inside and earning the wrath of God and Hell. And now he mocks His creator, Who is infinitely good and patient…
…Such men anger me. He did this with his eyes wide open. Instead of humbling himself before God and going to Scripture alone for the answers to his questions (although his questions became veiled insults, not sincere questions, as with all scoffers), he mocks Him. Now he’s trying his best to lead others down the broad road of destruction.
What the Denise’s of the Evangelical world fail to understand is that when they respond like this they only reinforce the atheist’s negative opinion of Christianity. Why would anyone want to be a member of the religion Denise, aka Surphing, is a part of? Why would anyone want to be a part of a hater’s club, a group that attacks anyone who is not just like them?
Thank you Denise for reminding me why leaving Christianity was the single best thing I ever did. Keep up the good work. You and your ilk are experts at turning people from Christianity to godlessness. Too bad there isn’t an afterlife and a judgment, Denise. I suspect you would have a lot to give an account for.
At least she didn’t say to Justin, he that hath ears let him hear. A regular reader sent me an email and wondered how long it would be before an Evangelical dropped that line. I thought I would steal their righteous thunder.
