I am a Christian in the Romans !2:1 kind of way. I don’t feel baiting is wrong. It is therapeutic and fun. However I was asked in one of those information forms what My religion was I want to be used of God to hopefully turn these people to the LORD but why would it make and difference to a scamer what my faith is?

That's something I've only rarely been asked, whatever my baiter persona is. More often the Lads assume you're a Christian, practising or otherwise.

It doesn't seem to matter if you're not - neither the Odin-worshipping Cammy (used to be Eliza) nor the agnostic Captain Mal have been dropped for religious reasons, IIRC.

They like to know so they can use a victim's faith to wring more money out of them. Using religion against victims can be an extremely potent tactic.

And Lads pose as Christians to try to give themselves credibility. It's just another lie.

Lads seem to feel that western Christians have a view that all Christians look on one another as brothers and sisters, and that all Christians are honest in their dealings with others. So if they say they're Christian, that makes them believable.

Some of them actually attend churches that are nominally Christian. Their faith is a sort of amalgamation of Christianity and tribal religions. They believe in God like western children believe in Santa Claus - if you ask God for something and you get it, then God gave it to you. So if they ask God for rich magas and someone answers their scam mail, then God sent that maga to them.

Such a belief may be incomprehensible to people who are firm believers in not being dishonest, but the lads don't see any dichotomy. They are not stealing, they believe; the magas are giving them the money. If the story they tell to get the money is a lie, well, it was a story God told them to tell in order to get the maga to give them money. And if giving them money hurts the maga, well, then the maga must have been a bad person and God is punishing them.

Very simple beliefs, and yet at the same time very convoluted.

^^Yup, Titania. It's all bass-ackwards, their thinking, and totally contradicts what they profess to believe. That's why it's a good weapon to use against them.

I get many emails ranting about religion and doing "God's Work".....but it all comes down to the money. I've written back explaining that I'm an atheist, but that I'll certainly use my share of the millions to do good works. None of them have dropped me for being a non-believer.

Widows, orphans AND bible quoting! I'm surprised they don't mention being tied to a railroad track by a moustache-twirling villain.

Quote:
will use this funds to fund churches orphanages and widows propagating the word of God and to ensure that the house of God is maintained. The Bible made us to understand that Blessed is the hand that giveth. I took this decision .....my husband relatives are not Christians and I don't want my husband's
hard earned money to be misused by unbelievers.

I don't want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner.... I am not afraid of death hence I know where I am going.(I think I can guess!) I know that I am going to be in the bosom of the Lord. Exodus 14 VS 14 says that the lord will fight my case

@Titania,Thumbs up

An excellent summary.

It would be nice to find a permanent home for that piece of wisdom, as both vics and newcomers to this site get confused by the Lads' professed "Godliness" Rolling Eyes

lately ive had a few religious lads turn down my offer of $25k to start a medical clinic (as long as they join my false church).

they just simply say they are already involved in their religion and thanks for the offer.

they never ask me if i want to proceed with their transaction or anything.

their mails are quite freindly asking about the religion, then saying no, and wishing me good luck???
