Because many Christians have this pathological and retarded need to be right about EVERYTHING and to slam those that don't agree with them; even if other Christians have beliefs that differ from each other. EVERYONE just HAS to believe what they do or they're not Christians/They're going to hell.
It's stupid. Which is why I'm SO glad I don't classify myself as being under the Christian label anymore. -_- I don't have the time, patience, or energy for that kind of pettiness. It gets in the way of learning.
Thank you ^_^
U R living now in what i prefer to call ( COMFORTABLE ILLUSION)
Oh am I? By all means, attempt to enlighten me then.
You by your own words are being as judgemental as the Christians you put down!
How is she a hypocrite, if she doesn't identify as a Christian ? She's not obliged to follow their rules. They're the ones who are hypocrites, espousing rules THEY don't follow.
Loud-mouthed Christians are hypocrites usually. Jesus preached humility, meekness and forgiveness.
PW8iron - you're deliberately reading me out of context - reread the question and then my direct answer
They think their own irrational beliefs are correct and those other irrational beliefs aren't.
I don't know that any belief is wholly rational. Because belief is not really voluntary it's hard to see how far a word like 'reason' can be applied to belief. In the strictest philosophical sense at least. Some beliefs seem more rational than others of course, but no two people reason quite the same way.
Your description, of what I imagine is supposed to be the big bang, would be as accurate as if I described the biblical story of jesus as a fire breathing dragon who hanged pontius pilate.
Christians are afraid and they use their judgment of others to feel more comfortable, the problem is these people cant be happy with doing this once they tend to become addicted and they need to condemn more and more. I feel sorry for people who have been spiritually harassed by these people. I hope one day they will learn how to keep what they supposedly feel spiritually to themselves. I am no christian I have invented my own "religion" I guess you could label it that, but the point is that I have never felt inferior if I didnt have a mob behind me to show others that I am right. It all seems childish to me. On top of that I would be kind of annoyed if someone did start to echo my beliefs because each person is different and no spiritual path can be the same in my heart.
two reasons, 1)Some people just say they are Christians, but don't follow any of the rules and commandments of the faith 2)And the other reason is some some people are judgmental, condescending jerks
they fall into category number 2 to me.... but the problem with that is that occasionally (historically speaking) churches like the catholic church have been known to fall into both categories
Which is hilarious when you think about it LoL After all, it is Catholicism that is the mother of modern-day Christianity XD Ironic much?
Because Mormons are not Christians, they are a cult.
Why do you get to decide that Mormons are a cult and not Christian? What or who gives you the authority to proclaim that ? Are YOU a God?
Didn't they make up their own personal equivalent of the Bible ? That was what always made me doubtful. I'm not a practising Christian, but I understood the Bible was THE holy book.
Because we are ALL sinners. No brainer. It is when we are sinning that we lose focus of the big picture, we get distracted by the little things, the unimportant things, and we forget why we are all here in the first place. We start throwing stones when we are just as deserving (or not deserving) as our victim. There was only one perfect person to ever walk the face of the planet. And HE is the one who gets to decide who is a Christian and who is not. The rest of us can just sit - n - spin because we are just as guilty as the person at whom we are pointing a finger.
And yet. . .the whole point of our being here is to improve, to grow. And without the mistakes and sins, we cannot learn to improve, to grow. SO, let's not say Christians are two-faced, because EVERYBODY is at times. Let's not say I'm a Christian so I'm better than you, because that belief has no place in Christianity. All of us have our ups, when we are morally stronger and make the better choice. But by the same token, all of us at times submarine ourselves to the bottom of the barrel by the poor choices we make. So in essence, we are all in this together. The Christian, the atheist, the Muslim, the Jew. Let's uplift one another and be the support our neighbor needs. Let's forgive each other of the stupid things we say and do. No matter what faith you are, there IS a better way for all of humanity. And that is putting others first.
cause buddha told them to do it.
some Christians have a "more Christian than thou" attitude. They think their own personal brand of Christianity is the only right way
We seem to forget at the end of this life ... There is a judgement !
and there are 5 witch one are you going to be in??
Because anyone who is hateful and intentionally harms others can't call themselves a Christian.
Simply because there are a few false sheep among the flock.
cause theyre judging and its wrong
Everyone is judgemental of others and their actions because it is so much easier to point out others misdeeds and faults than to look inside yourself and point out our own! The Bible is just another crutch some people use to try and make themselves higher than the rest to try and preach what they feel is "right"! Like a soapbox on top of the podium!
well, you know what they say, sometimes the truth hurts.
I find that Christians tend to immidiately dismiss anything that the members of their religion do bad. They refuse to recognize that some of them are extremists. It is one thing to denounce actions of one religion's member, but it is another thing to claim that such a person does not belong to Christianity.
Also, Christians are hypocrites about this towards other religions, especially Muslims. If Muslims denounce the actions of some bad Muslims (and they do! and I am one of those who does not agree with Muslim extremists and their views), Christians dismiss it as if no other non-Christian person can claim that they are not the same as the rest of the "religious" bunch. Christianity for centuries was used by many as means to opress and destroy socieites. Just because today majority of Christians do not agree with such evil done in their religion's name, does not mean that others' religions are bad or evil. Islam, Judaism, and other religions can also be used by evil people for evil means but does not mean that those religions are evil.
Christ said you will know a tree by its' fruit. True christians bear true fruit, many people who call themselves christian do not.
because they believe in Christ a different way from what they expect.
Because some Christians take their religion more seriously than other Christians, most Christians these days don't do much but believe in God and hardly go to church, whereas many other Christians are busy doing ceremonies and lessons each Sunday and praying every night. I mean the Christians who lack the profecy should just be Agnostic, but I don't know maybe they just don't have time for church, trust me I'm in the same water -_-, haven't been to church since like August. (Personal Reasons.)
Man, something about Christians rub me the wrong way...
It's like they look for a reason to persecute anybody...
But steadily have their noses in the bible and in church
Your finger pointing doesn't make you holy...that's selfish...
The only reason you feel bad is when you have no fellowship with God, and most of you want to justify your sinful
Darkness hates the light!
