I wouldn't avoid you, but I would think you were pretty delusional.
No ... you are my kinda people! :)
Don't ever be afraid of man. Remember what God says in Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
(We are at war in the spirit always) Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. Stand tall my friend... ; )
would you constantly bring the subject up around me?
we'd be cool then.
Are you kidding? I'd like you even more! I am also a Christian and I try to pray a lot and have a daily relationship with God. : )
It's a valid question. Most people that are not believers would feel like they were going to get preached to perhaps even other believers like myself. I think the answer is to be like Christ himself, and a lover of people, someone others can relate too, and compassionate. You don't have to say, "hi, my name is Mike, and I read the bible , pray and believe in God!" why not let them ask you what's so different about you and why is it so attractive?
I won't ever dismiss or discriminate against someone ba
How is a religion an "external factor"? That seems like the definition of internal.
My bad *and external features. Note to self, do not hastily post when deprived of sleep.
Certainly not, why should we avoid someone who has morals and belief in God? If I met you I would want to have a discussion with you and why you believe and what you believe. I was brought up Christian but found something more realistic and logical which is more convincing. I believe in God and Jesus but I don't believe Jesus is God or the son of God. But don't let anyone put you down for believing in God. People who know God exists are less likely to commit crimes. Belief in God is the basis of our life. Only God can answer our prayers and our future is already written.
Take a hint from those that HAVEN'T answered.
Not if you didn't try to convert me or force people to live by your religious values.
Hmmm, never heard anyone bring up their atheism except in response to something religious being said or going on.
Make sense to me and I wouldn't think of either of those being proselytizing in any way, just a matter of your own choice.
Please keep in mind the words of Luke 9:26: "If a person is ashamed of me and my messge, I, the Son of Man, will be ashamed of that person when I return in my glory and in the glory of the Father and the holy angels."
Not being a Christian there's not much meaning there for me.
You're far from being a freak.. I've been reading some of your stuff and I think that you are maybe a bit confused about how life evolves around you, but you seem to be very in touch with yourself and that's great.
I would not, but we would never talk about my beliefs or yrs.
No, I am too
NO. Even though you look scary, there is good on the inside.
Not at all, though I do have trouble dealing with those who take the Bible literally.
no. i am a Christian
never....keep the faith
I don't care. As long as they are well behaved and non-hostile, I got no problem with anyone. Pray to god, buddha, jahwe or allah, to shiva, odin or bhaal...as long as you don't act against me, your faith is your own, and nobody has the right to force you otherwise. so why would I avoid you?
Nope.. i think praying is good.. i'm not a Christian myself though i don't mind or not bothered if someone is of a different religion than me because afterall we are all a part of God's family.. : )
