I do not believe in other deities because they are false; by your statement, you claim that my Lord is false as well. To me, all that states is that you refuse to test his word, and I sorrow for you over that.
Yes, sheep need shepards. I presume that, from the emphasis you placed on that, you would consider yourself to be a goat instead.
Do you know how arrogant, dogmatic, stupid, and misled you sound?
The Dark Ages are called so because it was a time when the church ruled.
Yes. If you are an atheist, then you will go to hell, and from there to the lake of fire. There is only one escape from that fate, and that is through the salvation offered by Jesus Christ. Without that, you have no hope.
This Jesus Christ guy does not seem very compassionate. Isn't the devil supposed to do awful things? This Jesus Christ guy seems to be a lot more sadistic, cruel, twisted, insane, and evil things than the devil.

Gods are fragile things, they can be killed with a whiff of science and a dose of common sense. Our contemporaries will look back on this age and wonder why we practiced barbarity.
If free will does not exist, then you cannot posess it. If you do not posess free will, then I submit that your life is pointless.
Yes my life is pointless, as is yours. My life has no meaning, nor does yours. My life does not mean ANYTHING, I exist only to die. Does that make you feel better? (note, I was not being sarcastic)
