I Am Tired of Holier-than-thou Religious People

    Do Not Judge, Lest Ye Be Judged...

    Having studied religion in college and for my masters, there's a lot that people need to learn about religious belief and how that should shape everyday life. Being in a Christian environment for my grad studies, I soon discovered that many people, in fear that they would...

    Don't Shove Your Beliefs In My Face...

    ....I will respect your religion, and I wouldn't even think to change it...so don't go trying to change mine.It irritates me how there are people in this life who like to point out whatever single thing you're doing is wrong......because they think it's a sin. It's ridiculous...

    Pride Comes Before A Fall

    When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living.  I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven. When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need God to be my guide...

    One thing I'm learning through my journey with

    the Norse gods is respect. Yes Vikings are known for their war like culture but they lived by the all fathers blood and the nine noble virtues. If they went to a foreign land they learned of the local peoples god(s) that's something the crusades should have done.

    I have been to more churches, church services, and church events than I can even begin to count. I have dealt with a goodly amount of people that have a holier-than-thou attitude. It is sickening. Honestly, I want to slap anyone that has this attitude towards me and tell...

    True Story

    Back in 2004 my family went on vacation in our camper. Being the good democrats we are, we had Kerry/Edwards bumper stickers on our camper and truck.  We got to the beach, set up camp next to other campers like we always do.  As I was returning from the bathhouse, the...

    I don't like the word religion.

    This word brings up many negative connotations. What I have is an intimate and personal relationship with my heavenly Father God who created me, His son Jesus who paid for my sin and gave me His righteousness, and His Holy Spirit who lives in my heart and is my helper. I have...

    I Don't Want Your Charity!

    Let me start by saying that although I have a service dog I am perfectly capable of doing things for myself. I find it very embarrassing to accept any help, even when I need it, which is why it really pissed me off when a "good Christian girl" decided to make me her charity case...

    I Am Indeed

    I will never be able to acquaint myself with religious people. We're just polar opposites. I can only handle so much bullshit before I snap and I would say and do a lot more if I could do so without some type of law intervening. They prefer to lead a life of dominion, they're...

    It's sad to say but there is no one personally

    in my life, especially church leaders, whom I respect, admire or want to emulate. They are poor examples to non-christians. As a Christian I learned long ago to look to God not to men. Hippocrits will never turn me away from my relationship with God. That's just an excuse to...

    Your Convictions Aren't Helping.

    Don't get me wrong. I love my husband. That said, his beliefs about God, church, and spirituality drive me nuts. The guy has OCD and he grew up in two legalistic conservative denominations, so I understand why he's legalistic now. He recognizes it sometimes, and he lets me call...

    Rammed Down Your Throat!

    There are few things I like rammed down my throat, and religious fanatics are the very least, as well as political elitists. Religion is the dogmatisation of a sound spiritual idea, which results in so stagnation of purpose and sight. It's Gods honest truth! It's in the...

    Legalistic Pride

    In Jesus' day, they were called Pharasies. They were more concerned with outside appearance, rather than inward attitude. Genuine Christians think as follows: When I say...."I'm a Christian".....I'm not shouting......that I'm clean livin....I'm whispering....I was lost...
