Born again Christians, especially, seem to have a "Holier than though" mentality, which can be seen quite regularly right here on this site. And of
course, they all feel that they are the only ones good enough to get into heaven, and everyone else is going to hell. Sorry, I don't buy that
Sorry, but I don't buy yours!
LMAO the hypocritically irony of this thread just cracks me up.
Though I've met enough "Born Again" evangelical type Christians to understand some anoyance with alot of them, I find the egocentricity of athiests
and agnostics believing Christians in particular, over any other religion, are so wrong and belittling them or constantly trying to find new ways to
attack them for their beliefs- beyond reasonable comprehension!
I find you excitable boy, an obvious member of the Anti-Christian cult, as hypocritical and misinformed and brainwashed as any Christian could be.
Many of such, as with many of the atheist cult, often seem to tout they are so much more logical, and intelligent and reasonable than Christians, but
really they are as misguided as those they accuse of being misguided. Time will tell who is right and who is wrong...why fight about it?
People if you are saved by grace through Jesus Christ do not contend with others with a contentious spirit-love them, value them, accept
them...whatever they believe or do not believe...anything else is not Christ-like. Have fun and friendly conversations and realize in some we respect
everyone is a hyppocrit, no one is perfect etc.
Do you think you can make them to see truth, strong arm them in belieiving in grace? No, you can only love them and hope the best for them. Educate
them with what you believe, and perhaps pursuedeth them with sincerety and gentle true enticement to seek truth for themselves-but do it with a hope
they will come to truth for themselves not that they will simple believe you about anything and understanding you represent yourself and your
beliefs-not Christianity as a whole-for you are not Christ.
Speaking of Christ, He set a great example. He did not go around preaching of hell, He went around teaching of love. Take His example to heart. Love
People if you do not believe in Christ, or Christianity, then do not be offended by it-else me thinks thou dost protest too much! If you do not
believe in heaven or hell or shades of gray in between, fine! By why bash others for their beliefs or assume one Christian represents all Christianity
or even a denomination?
and please do not use that tired old excuse that you "would, if all Christians would stop preaching to me about being saved and hell.. blah blah
...if they are so bad-why stoop to their level then and be equally as ignorant and annoying with your equally annoying stereotypical beliefs and tired
old attacks like this thread?
You know? Be civil. Accept others. Love one another. It's ok to disagree, but don't seek offense. Don't look for offense at every turn with
everyone who does not believe as you do-whatever that belief may be-Christian, non-Christian, athiest or anyone. It's all just so old.
I personally hate being told I am not a Christian because my beliefs may be non-traditional at times, or even too traditional at other times! Geez!
Tell me you disagree or see things different but you can't judge me that I am not a Christian, or excitable boy, don't judge that I think I am
holier than thou or anyone just because I am , you know? (Am a Christian that is...born again that is...not saying I am hoilier than thou
