I Think Christianity Has Serious Problems

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,287 People

    It has a ton of problems.

    I used to be a Christian but I found the Christian god unworthy of a godly title. But most of the problems reside in the people who can't keep it to themselves. The amount of time I've been told that I'm a heathen and or am going to hell for my choice I'm the Norse gods and...

    The fact that Christianity does have serious

    problems is the reason to allow anyone interested to come in contact with things that go against mainstream doctrines. http://www.inplainsite.org/html/original_sin_fact_or_fable.html

    The problem behind christianity today is

    that it relies too much on the rules instead of trusting in God's grace first. Christians are going to make mistakes during their journey but it does not mean they're bound to be sent to hell. True Christians I believe only correct the person who sins in a patient helpful...

    Guys, stop stereotyping Christians.

    We are not all money grabbing, white trash, charismatic bigots. That is only a part of us. Some of us are nice people.

    Christianity Scared the Be’jesus Out of Me!

    My mother, who believed in God, didn’t insist that we go to church. She felt there was too much hypocrisy in it and always told us what amounted to: "if you live a positive life and treat others with respect, you will find your way”.  However, I do...

    The problem with Christianity is Jesus.

    There's no way to fix the problem, to remove the problem and still call the religion Christianity. The problem is the whole idea of vicarious atonement - the concept of someone else atoning for people's sins by dying for them. It means that as long as someone "believes," or let...

    Bible Camp Night Sweats

    I was raised by a staunch Babtist. Every summer I was carted off to bible camp for two weeks. The camp was actually fun, but each evening we were herded into the camp chapel and told horror stories about life after death for non-believers. I used to cringe and dread each...

    Because of being steeped in,

    believing, and living a lie, in the the advanced stages of Christianity, the Christian takes on an artificial appearance and begins to look like the lie: The well-known pasty look with the smiley mask. The lie emerges in the physical self. www.exposingchristianity.com

    Christianity does have serious problems

    and those of us on the inside are well aware of many faults and suffer from the shortcomings of small groups. The hypocritical lives of so many is a problem and judging the world is another, but is it right to paint everyone with the same brush?

    If Christmas and all

    that goes with it is justified without any biblical support, why has it become more important to many than the remembrance of Jesus with the bread and the wine that formed part of a meal, and not some ritual performed on various occasions according to denominational bias.

    The more Christianity loses touch with it's

    Jewish beginning, the more it creates serious problems and the trend to keep inventing itself fails to produce disciples, but in fact it produces high class sinners.

    When you really break it down,

    there are "gods" or "Gods" in Christianity. In the beginning God said let "US" make man in "OUR" likeness. So there it is really nothing else to say... However Christians believe that Jesus is God beside his pops, aka "the father". So here is another example of the teaching of...
