Do I understand correctly that you do not want anyone to feel God's Holy Spirit so you can be more comfortable with your own beliefs or lack thereof?

The witness of the Holy Ghost is perhaps the most real experience a person can ever have in their lifetime. God does live, and Jesus is the Christ, regardless of how loudly some people try to deny their existence.

But you'll find out for yourself some day, I can assure you of that...

I'm of the belief that the reality of your holy ghost is right up there with santa's rudolph. Not very nice of you to finish with an empty threat....Who exactly do you think you are scaring? It can't be people who don't believe in your myths can it? That would be rather silly don't you think?

That wasn't intended to be a threat, it was intended to be a promise.

I fail to see any threat in what I wrote, please explain yourself.

Everybody knows that eventually every person born to this world will die. With a few exceptions it is most likely that almost everyone in the world believes that conscious life continues after the death of the physical body and most probably expect that if there really is a God of some description they will likely have a close encounter of some kind with Him (or Her or It I suppose for some) at or soon after death.

Where's the threat?

I guess I misunderstood you, partly because what you said make no sense...Once you are dead there is nothing that one can know...The other part is that I must be getting used to being told that us unbelievers are going to hell...

I don't want to feel the Holy Ghost inside me...or breathing so near to me...it's like a a child molestation case right there. Anyone else creeped out about the imagery?

I don't need a jolly Santa up in my grill and invading my body, violating my every organ (sounds like a porn gone bad, doesn't it? )

I like my deities far away from my personal bubble, thanks.

What's so bad about going to hell? Apparently people who don't believe in the Christian faith are Satanists. If you can't beat 'em, throw a party in their face We'll join Satan and turn Hell into an eternal night club. Their god is so afraid of losing his army that he lies to them so they become afraid and take his side. Personally, I don't want a creepy white-bearded guy to peer at me all the time, while hiding in the clouds. There's a reason why Heaven is depicted as white and why God is dressed in white. More easier to hide to peep. What a voyeur

I'll bring the skewers. Someone bring the marshmallows

I for one do not preach that go to hell doctrine my friend. But I do expect to have an opportunity to look you up and shake your hand on the other side.

they take the tourists and collect money from them

Hummmm, I'd say that not much has changed, the touts are taking their cue from the churches, only they are not nearly so greedy. The churches are still fleecing the flock weekly, the touts only get one bite at each apple.
