    Christian Surfers is all around the world and has different chapters. Several meet on the East Coast and many are in this Mid-Atlantic. Ive been able to take several Surf trips with them and even though its a bunch of Christians its an awesome time. Feel free to pm if you have any interest!! Much love!

    i guess they didn't teach you to spell at sunday school. :rolleyes:

    maybe you should worry less about your "everlasting soul" & "spreading the word" & more about presenting yourself as a moron. religion & surfing do NOT mix.

    Wow, that was harsh... I think surfing and everything mix. If a bunch of stoked christians want to "walk on water" together, thats awesome. As long as they aren't paddling around lineup to lineup handing out waterproof booklets, I think we will all be ok. I think a bunch of christians would be welcome in my lineup, since right now its filled with a bunch of as$holes, ya know?

    my issue is that the vast majority of people who run around calling themselves christian do not ACT in accordance w/ their professed beliefs. in fact, they are quite frequently the biggest hypocrites around.
    i have no doubt that there are some great people out there who *happen* to be christian. but the fact that they're good people has little or nothing to do w/ their religion.

    like i said in my original response, most christians would be better served if they worried less about others & more about themselves.

    I agree. Peoples acts should reflect what kind of person they are. With all the sh#! going on in the world a little God in the mix is good. People who don't believe in God get pretty religious when the plane is going straight down ! I also believe in what goes around comes around. I guess thats karma.

    Its not right to hate on someone for their political views, reguarless of what one believes in.

    With that said, Christians are just people. They are just as easily tempted by sins as the next guy. Everyone sins.

    And to keep on topic. I've been to some Christian Surfers meetings and its cool. Religion and prayer is good for the soul.

    Pray for some surf :cool:

    Speak for yourself kid! I'm not part of your cult nor do I believe in your book or your god.
    If it works for you great, but it doesn't jive for everyone.

    Threads like this never end well, not a knock on the OP.

    Everyone is entitled to practice whatever they want, even Pastafarianism.

    For me, surfing and yoga hit the spot. :D

    Im not getting into the debate, Im not religious, but Im reading a book called, Walking On Water - The Spirituality of the World's Top Surfers by Jeremy V. Jones, in which he interviews CJ and Damien Hobgood, Tom Curren, and Al Merrick. It's pretty good.

    What an a$$hole



    Man, you are really representing the typical NJ dumbass attitude. I would laugh if he annointed your face w/ his Christian fist. You're the negative one here douchebag.

    you're right...i'm the asshole. i'm also stupid b/c i don't see how "representing the typical nj dumbass attitude" has anything to w/ the topic at hand.

    & if he "annointed" my face as you say, that would be the epitome of irony.

    my position is summarized thusly: religion is illogical & makes no sense. it has had a generally detrimental effect on the world as a whole (NOT talking individuals) & the world would prob. be better off w/out it.

    Christian Surfers are by far the best guys to surf with. Always generous with sharing waves and just generally stoked on getting out in God's creation.

    I'd like to hear njsurfer42's reasoning for why religion and surfing do not mix. By the way njsurfer42, most Christians would not consider themselves religious and most would probly speak out against religion. Christians would consider themselves to be spiritual. It's obvious that you've denied something that you know nothing about. I'll take that back if you can explain the Gospel to me.
