    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.

    Some Of The Nicest People Are Not Labled " Christian"

    From Ancient Past. Man made Up God. And Cultures made up their Religions in order to get control of their Culture by making them feel guilty if they disobeyed the rules. And trying to put fear in people by saying the rules are God Given. Pretty soon Religion begins making...

    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.

    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...
