Christianity Is Inherently Immoral

Even this dolphin knows that Christianity is not a valid moral system.

Any moral system worthy of the name must include acceptance of responsibility for the consequences of one’s actions. Yet merely admitting fault to oneself is insufficient. A wrong one has done must be righted through positive moral corrective action. This means that apologies must be made and–most of all–amends must be made to those one has harmed.

Christianity contains no such requirement, therefore Christianity is not a valid moral system. Within Christianity the moral requirement that you apologize to and make amends to those you have harmed is cast aside, and instead a strange substitution is made; instead of apologizing and making amends to those you have harmed, you are required to apologize and make amends to a probably imaginary being.

There is no morality at all in apologizing and making amends to a probably imaginary being, while specifically evading the responsibility and the hard and possibly humiliating work of apologizing and making amends to those you have harmed. Such an approach goes far beyond laziness and shirking. Such an approach is inherently immoral. Therefore Christianity is immoral, and inherently so.

Even an Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Step Program Is Morally Superior to Christianity

The eighth and ninth steps of an Alcoholics Anonymous 12-Step program are as follows:

8. Make a list of persons you have harmed, and become willing to make amends to them all.

9. Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Thus even an AA 12-Step program is morally superior to Christianity.

Let’s Make This Personal

Imagine someone has done you terrible harm. Imagine that this person has lied about you publicly, defamed you, destroyed valuable relationships in your life, destroyed your livelihood, destroyed your reputation, and never apologized or made amends. Imagine that there is absolutely no chance of recovering from the harm this person has done to you and to your life without corrective assistance from the perpetrator, who refuses all such corrective assistance.

Now imagine that the person who has done you all of this terrible harm responds only by praying for forgiveness from their probably imaginary friend, while assuming that they are a good person for having asked for forgiveness from their probably imaginary friend, while also refusing to correct the harm they have done to you.

This precise scenario has occurred countless times in the more than 2,000 year history of Christianity. Every time someone does this, within the lazy “moral” framework of Christianity, it is just as immoral.

So the next time you hear of someone praying for forgiveness instead of doing what’s right and honorable and genuinely helpful to others, please make the sensible as well as moral choice to not think well of their laziness and evasion of responsibility in the name of religion.
