This is my perspective on "The War Against Christians".
I feel that there is definately a war between Christians and types of Christianity; there always has been. Throughout time, Christianity has
definately earned a name that is associated with fear, control and even death.
A Christian is a follower of Christ and what Christ believed, well at least that is what the definition was once upon a time. To look back in
history, to read the bible (which I have several times), to hear and watch someone who preach over the television, to receive visitors at your door;
all who are representing in the name of Christianity, are all reasons why I stayed away from "Christianity" and the church for years. It did not
stop me from believing in God and believing what Christ tried to teach to those who would listen. I do believe in God's laws and the reason why they
are there; at least to me it all makes sense. Why we have moral laws, etc.; all these laws were set forth to protect every person and our existance.
Unfortunately, control and power have always been mans (or womens if you want to get political) means of existance. There will always be a war
against who's right and who's wrong for the sake of power and we will always try to justify our own actions to feel good, empowered, comfortable,
The thing that I see happening more and more is that there are some people who will stand up for what they believe in without pursecuting the person
that they believe is doing wrong, but in return they are attacked for standing up for what they believe in; hatred is very strong right now, but I
don't think it is necessarily "against Christians", I believe it is because people just want to do what they want to do, what makes them feel good,
empowers them, etc. Morals values, right or wrong does not hold the same significance. There are so many that have turned to "what feels good at
the time". This is sad to me because we are losing our human accountability, our self discipline and our children are not learning the importance of
these things and will be in control of the future. - okay, sorry about the bunny trail.
I do believe there is anger and resistence against Christianity, but not a "war" so to speak.
I pray that not just Christians, but all people really take a look at what Christ was trying to teach us. It is good to stand up for what you
believe; you do not have to conform to anything you do not want to. Christ teaches us that it is okay, but He also teaches us that we are accountable
for ourselves, not others actions or choices; that love is the greatest commandment; we should concentrate on our own relationship with God.
Sadly enough, I believe that so many people wish for someone to teach them instead of seeking the truth for themselves. Too many people are so busy
bashing each other that they forget they could have but a blink of an eye to actually "live" here on this earth and maybe should concentrate more on
the truth of their own existence. Rather than looking for "wars".
I myself love to hear other's opinions and viewpoints; I am pretty open minded. However, for the truth I seek that myself and don't rely on a
spoon-feeding. Opinions/views may not necessarily be the truth.
Okay, okay, I am done
