QOTD

Filed at 5:50 pm under by dcobranchi

Ugandan Pentecostal pastor Martin Ssempa says, “People who claim to be God are either impersonators or comedians.”

Hmmm. Did Jesus ever say “claim to be God?” Yes, he did.

“The truth is, before Abraham was, I AM.” (John 8:58 NLT)

So, which one was he? An impersonator or a comedian?

There’s a difference between claiming to be God and actually being God.

Really? And who decides that the claim is true? The claimant?

Jesus claimed to be god. The Ugandan minister said anyone who claims to be god is an impersonator or a comedian. Therefore, Jesus is one or the other (assuming the Ugandan minister is correct).

My personal opinion is that ANYONE who claims to be a god is an idiot, since, you know, there’s no such thing as a god.

Dumb response. You make a claim that there is an invisible god who is all powerful, all knowing, and ever present. When asked for evidence you have none. And you claim that this Jesus fellow is also god and that he is going to return some day. You and your ilk have been claiming for almost 2000 years that his return is imminent. When asked for evidence of THIS, you are also unable to provide any. I think 2000 years is long enough to wait. He ain’t coming back.

Do your wife and children believe the same way you do about God?

No such thing. At least from a human perspective. When you die, you’re dead. End of story.

And, BTW, I’m waiting for evidence that your god exist. Good luck.
