    Christians & Church

    I also don't believe that you have to attend Church to be a good person, perhaps to be a good Christian but that still doesn't make you a better person nor does it make you be nice.

    Some Of The Nicest People Are Not Labled " Christian"

    It Should Come Natrually

     you should by nature be kind.and if the only reason your doing something is to make out like you are a christian,then your a lie.because then you are doing it because you feel obligated.when you should do it just to be kind to someone.

    Christians Don't Understand Nice Or The Love Of Christ

     There is truth and there are lies. There is reality and there is hidden deception. To be Christian is not to go to church and follow the religions of man; because to do that is only receiving false truth through hidden deception that is going to blindside hundreds of...

    I don't believe in evolution, it is a theory full of holes, but more importantly, it can't explain who started it all, and it does not give credit to the creator.
