The John 3:18 Movement

It is very difficult to drive on American streets without noticing at least one of the famous John 3:16 bumper stickers.

One would not even be surprised to see a reference to the verse on the bottom of a restaurant cup (see picture)! So, just what does this verse contain? Many of those reading this may already know it by heart, but here it is:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

What benevolent words does Jesus speak next? Well actually he says…

 ”Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but

whoever does not believe stands condemned already

because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.” (John 3:18)

This post is a plea to all free-thinkers. Share the message of John 3:18 as vehemently as it was spread by our Christian brothers and

sisters. Let them know that Bill Gates, who lost the title of richest man in the World after he gave away more than $28 billion to charity, has already been condemned to hell by the words merely two lines after the most quoted bible verse in America.

Please share this article, and start the free-thinking movement of John 3:18. Add the hashtag #John3:18 on Twitter, write it on dollar bills, make people explore their own religion.

Also, I hope to offer wristbands and bumper stickers when this movement becomes embraced by free thinkers everywhere.

    Again, don’t just say things without studying it.
    I’m glad you have read John 3:18 but have you also read John 3:17. Perhaps you should post that as well. Or for that matter post all of John 3.
    Context is, in fact, important.

  2. Even in the context of John 3:17, John 3:18 condemns the same people to hell. You could argue that Hitler wasn’t so bad in context, if your context is the fact that he didn’t want to extreminate you personally, he just wanted to kill every living jew.

      Facts and context are important. Who says Hitler wanted to “kill every living Jew.” Historian David Irving has a $100 bill sitting on his desk for the first person to prove Hitler knew about the systematic killing. It’s been there for twenty years. He states that they killed them by the millions on the front, but not as the “official story” has it. And in fact it’s been proven that one of the items those condemned to death at Nuremberg were found guilty of they didn’t commit–it was a mass killing done by the Russians.

    Are you then equating the Christian God with Hitler?
    What then of those who follow that God?

    Hey Matt, Long time no type. Just got your email.

    Not many people know much about the Bible, including the believers, but I must say that I think it is just as wrong of you to leave the statement out of its full context as it is for the folks you are denouncing to do that.

    The statement is important in its entire context. There was a time when I knew it by heart. It’s an important philosophical statement in its full context. I’m fond of it myself–I mean the most important philosophical part, the part you left out:

    “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.”

    * * *

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

      Oops. Forgot your name is Ethan, and not Matt. Anyhow, I got an email about someone changing locations, so I thought that was you. Anyhow, let me know if your interested in the book readings. Yale university has lots of free lectures to go along with the books.
