I Am Outraged. All I Hear On This Site Is How Bad ALL Christians Are. Let Me Enlighten All The People Who Post Topics Bashing The Religion Without Realizing What They Are Actually Saying. I Am Deeply Religious. I am A Christian. I Believe In Jesus and God. But There Is A Couple Things I am Not. I am Not Greedy, I Give Whenever I Can. I am Not Close Minded, I Have Studied And Learned About Many Religion.. Including Wicca. I Do Not Believe Most Of The Bible, Which MAN Wrote, I Am Scientific. I Believe What Jesus Has Said In His Own Words, Not What Man Interpreted Them To Be. I Don't Go To Church, For The One Reason That I Find Jesus In My Heart... Not In Stone and Wood, With A Man Claiming To Be Closer To God Then Everyone Else. I Believe No one Goes Straight To Hell, And Even Gays, Lesbians, and Satan Worshipers, And Murders Get A Chance In Heaven. The Point I am Trying To Make Is That Not All Christians Act and Think Like You Imply Them To. When You Make Posts Saying "The Truth About Christianity" and Imply That All Christians Act That Way Is Ignorance. That Is The Human Race. They Are Bad Christians Out There, Just Like There Is In Every Religion And Culture. That Doesn't Mean That Everyone Is Like That. Next Time, When You All Want To Post Something Bad About A Different Culture/Religion... Use The Words Some, Most, or Many. Not All, or Every. Believing In Jesus Is As Simple As Accepting Him Into Your Heart. Some People Confuse This and Complicate Things With Threat of Hell And Rules To Follow. That's Just In Our Nature as Humans. I am A Christian , And I Am Nothing Like You Judge Me To Be. no.gif

Oh, don't you worry... you'll find yourself.
Follow you heart and nothing else.
And you can do this oh baby if you try.
All that I want from you my son,
Is to be satisfied.

If you read the lot of the posts... People who act like religios fanatics, cramming thier beliefs down our throats, and saying that they know what's best for us... those are who we have a problem with.

People like Joc, on the other hand, who lets people worship and believe in whatever they want to.. while saying what he believes in, never gets yelled at or flamed.. (aside from the fanatics...)

That Is What I am Trying To Say. Religon Has Nothing To Do With Who You Are, But People Make It Seem Like Christians Are "Close Minded" "Greedy" And What Not.

I Don't Agree With Pushing Religon At People. What I Am Saying IS You Shouldnt Judge Them For It And Write Comments That Don't Imply To Everyone In That Certain Group

I believe you are not and I agree with what you are saying...

But you have to understand that Christianity has a bad name. And unfortunatly people often generalise everything.

This post will remind them that their is always good and bad everywhere.

If you really wish to show this side of Christianity then one thing you coud do as well would be to stand up to those Christian who bring it down with their extremist ideas.

I Do, Many Times. But, I Get Called "Not A True Christian" And A "Non-Believer"...  I Stood Up To A Church Once About Gays and Lesbians, But They Just Ignored Me And Gave Me Nasty Looks.

And what of all the gross missunderstandings made by a huge numbers of christians about Pagans?  About the Jewish, Abou the Muslims? Or about the Athiests?

What gives them the right to say Pagans are all Satan worshipers?

Once again, it's not all Christians I have a problem with... it's those who are the fanatics...  And they tend to rile people up...  don't yell at us, yell at them.

meaning no offense to any believers but, christianity and all other religions for that matter are cults, if you do not believe EVERYTHING last thing they speak of you are not true its pathetic really, out of all the cults in the world you would think the ones dedicated to thier creator would have some sort of tolerance, but they dont

I don't blame you for your thoughts. I know about the christians out there and what they do... I just want people to see that the religion itself is not like that, its the people doing it. Not everyone is like that, I just hate being judged by people when I am nothing like what they say. I can't stop anyone from changing their views and stop writing posts like that. I just want people to know that their are some people out there who are not like that. I am just as against the type of people like that as you are.

It's a valid point SC. Problem is not with Christians, Jewish folks, Muslims or '57 Hubcaps worshipers, it's the people and the leaders.

As far as I can tell, none of the three major religions enspouse in the books that they have defining their beliefs. I.E. the Bible New and Old testament. The Koran, the or the Jewish Holy books. It is those who claim to know the teachings, and add their own ideals into it.

I was raised in the Catholic church, even being an alter boy. We were not encourage to read the Bible by the local priest, as it was HIS job to tell us what it said. So much for me remaining with the church. No offense to Catholics. Just not my cup of tea.

There are fanatics in every part of life. Religion, politics, business and so on.

got a few question for you Queenofthenight..no need to answer them here.Its only to make you think

how do you see Christian?
how do you think Christian see themselves?
what do you think Jesus or Good feels about Chritians and or Christianity?
do you really think you need to follow Christianity to follow Jesus and God teachings?
do you think Jesus or God would want you to follow a group that spreads fear and are judgemental?

Do you think that Jesus or God would be angry at you if you stop following Christian beliefs but that that you are still following Jesus and God teachings to  the best of your abilities?

Do you think that Jesus and God would like you to follow their teachings and not being part of an organization that uses its name for good and bad things?

I understand that not all Christian are like that...but the truth is...MANY...MANY of them are. Even in church where it is supposed to be the true image of Chritianity, they are close minded, judgmental, and spread fear to those who do not believe or make mistakes.

Do you think Jesus and God wished that? Do you think that Jesus came all the way here to teach us to do that?


Do you need to be part of a group to be close to Jesus and God?

Do you need a priest to tell you what to believe?

if i was to ask all of you what kinds of things do you think im interested in, i can almost garentee none of you will guess it, based on the topics of my interest on this site (mysteries of mind space and time, and space science and technology, and the computing and the internet forum)

none of you probably expected me to listen to gangsta rap, or do graffiti, or tune cars, based on the topics i enjoy i sound like a nerd..well i consider my self a nerd actually, but not the stereotypical one, basically what im saying is you cant judge a book by its cover, and yes religion does that

Theportal- To answer your question.. I personally don't think Jesus approves at "Christianity". I couldn't say I follow it, but what else can I call myself? I believe in Jesus, God, and my own moral beiefs and what not.. I just don't agree with christianity and the way it teaches about Jesus. I don't know what you would call someone like me, that is way I use the term "Christian"

Yeah, I'm deeply religious too, and when someone made a post here about me you said and I quote 'I don't know who Ashley is, and I don't think I want to know'. The 'war' here which involved me was because I was talking about God, and I wouldn't back down when people started bashing, without ever really giving me a chance to explain what I was talking about.
