Deny yourself, deny your parents, deny your family. That’s what Jesus tells his followers they’ve to do. Today’s Christians can do better than that though! They’re in complete denial about everything, especially stuff for which there’s tons of evidence. Believing loads of made-up stuff is more their thing.
So, they deny climate change because God wouldn’t allow it (or something).
They deny that human beings contribute in any way to climate change because it’s not part of God’s plan.
They deny evolution because God created everything (in six days).
They deny how unpleasant, wasteful and cruel evolution is in order to believe that God used it to develop life here on Earth.
They deny that death existed before humans evolved because the Bible says it didn’t.
They want to deny gay people equality because the Bible says marriage is for one man and one woman (it doesn’t).
They seek to deny others their rights, often slanderously and viciously, but expect their ‘right’ to do so to be protected.
They deny that morality has anything to do with the way we treat other people and is really only about sex.
They deny that anyone can be moral or rational without believing in their God.
They deny that for most of us things are better than they’ve ever been and insist instead that things have only got steadily worse.
They deny the humanity of fellow human beings but believe in fantasy creatures like angels, spirits and demons.
They deny their own humanity, with its corresponding needs and limitations, and insist instead we’re designed to be spiritual creatures.
They deny most of what Jesus taught but tell everyone else they’re sinners.
They deny that Jesus said he’d be back in his disciples’ lifetime, and believe instead he’s still on his way.
They deny death and imagine they’re going to live forever in Heaven instead.
Christianity is a religion of negativity. Truth, reality and other people are the casualties of its life-denying efforts at self-preservation.
