OP, I'm going to disagree with you.
The so called Christians I have encountered in my life were the MOST judgmental people I've EVER met.
Not only judgmental, but the most hypocritical.
I was raised Catholic, and no matter where I went to church, be it NY, AK, TX, FL or NC, if you weren't in the same 'social circles' they were in, they wanted NOTHING to do with you.
My expirence isn't limited to the Catholic Church, I've gone to baptist church and Episcopalian churches as well, and looked down at, both me and my son.
That's when I decided I didn't need a church to have a relationship with God. I don't need to go to a building to tell everyone, 'HEY, LOOK AT ME! I'M HERE!'
Get off your high horses and treat your brothers and sisters as equals, you're no better then me, you put your pants on the same way I do: one leg at a time.
The most basic breakdown of the above data indicates that 85% of the Senate is Christian (compared with 73% of the population)...
Almost all of the presidents can be characterized as Christian, at least by formal membership. Some were Unitarian or unaffiliated with a specific religious body. Some are thought to have been deists, or irreligious. No president thus far has been an atheist or an adherent of any non-Christian religion.
Most self-styled Christians are really anything but.
For instance it says in the bible not to lend money at interest and to forgive the debt of all your debtors every 7 years.
How many Christians do that?
You're not alone with your charge-off question. Several readers have written in asking about how charge-offs are reported on credit reports and how long they stay there after the bad debt moves to a collector or judgment. The short answer is: A charge-off stays on your credit report for seven years from the date of the last delinquency, as dictated by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA.
This man said it best:
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ." ~ Mahatma Gandhi
It seems to me that Christians are their own worst enemies.
Put 100 Christians in a room to talk with one another and every single one of them will come out saying that the other 99 are not "true Christians".
THAT is the real hypocrisy here.
You are blind unto only yourselves.
old testament really shouldn't be in the bible, to be honest. 2 different approaches. the every 7 years thing is jewish. in the new testament, it just says to give to those who ask
BUT, when you come in my house, as my "friend", telling me I'm going to go to hell, for my alternative religious beliefs, WHILE YOU ARE PARTAKING OF A NON TOBACCO SMOKING PRODUCT, and admitting you cheated on your spouse,
You are a hypocrite!
