Accusations Aginst ApostatesRecently, I wrote a poem entitled “I No Longer Believe”, which basically sums up all of the likely accusation one might make to an individual who reveals he/she is no longer a believer in the Christian faith. The poem is filled mostly with references to Bible verses, which Christians often apply to individuals who are defined as “Atheists”, or - more specifically - Those who have no positive beliefs and lack conviction in the existence of any spiritual or meta-physical person/concept/place, etc.Accusations Aginst Apostates1 month ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
So what exactly are these accusations that Christians might make towards apostates (those who abandon an organized religion and no longer believe in it’s doctrines)? Well, before I get into the “what”. I think that it’s fair to address the “why” element first.

I stared into my cereal with a considerable lack of interrest.
"Fi, what do you wanna do today?" Cake stretched across the table. "It's a big day, you know."
"What's today?" I groaned, still tired.
"You're sixteenth birthday, girl." I shook my head and pulled off my hat, long curls grazing the floor.

"No one." I relaxed against the chair and sighed as a smirking Marshal pulled himself out from under the couch. He floated over to the table. "I suppose I'm not invited to Gummy's little party for you?" He ruffled my hair. I glared at him and pushed my hat on, most of my hair still showing.
Cake hissed. After all this time, she'd never been fond of Marshal Lee. Oh, well. Vampires. I shook my head and shrugged at him. "Not my party to invite people to."

Marshall Lee recovered quickly after Gumball's visit. It took him a bit of practice to get back on his feet-- Or more accurately, into the air, but once he did, he hovered in the middle of the room for a long time, concentrating on the action. Before long, he simply floated down the hospital hallway and out the front door, winking at the stunned nurses and doctors as he passed. They merely stared without a word and let him go. None of them really wanted him there in the first place.
By the time he reached his house, he was walking slowly, his feet heavy on the ground. He slammed his front door shut and, breathing heavily, collapsed on his uncomfortable couch. Finding a palm-sized stress ball between the cushions of his couch, he stared at the ceiling as he tossed it into the air and caught it when it came back down. His chest hurt when he moved his arms, but for some reason, he couldn't stop making the motion.
Fionna had saved his life. That was… different. M
