OK, I think I will get alot of oposition on this one, but here I go.
I think its funny how almost everyone who is an athiest (IE, doesnt believe in a God) is so harsh against Christianity, and not any other religion. They will have tolerence for most other religions, but get thier back up against Christians. I also think its extremely FUNNY ( I cap it cause I really want to express I am NOT mad, but beside myself in laughter) that So many people bash Christianity in complete ignorance. They turn thier back on it simply because they know if they believe, they now have someone to answer to besides themseves. They dont take the time to investigate, whats true, whats false, why would so many people in history give their lives proclaming the name of Christ? Most athiests simply make thier decisions on God based on thier life experience, or from what a friend or family member has told them through thier life, they have never taken an open look to investigate what it is. I did this a little over 2 years ago, and found the evidence far to overwhelming to ignore, and realised I need to turn to God.
As far as the past and present goes, like the crusades, or some catholic priest who like little boys. I agree like many other religions, and non reliegions, we Christians have a dark past. Many men have killed thinking they are doing the glory for god, and many men have been highly respected clerkymen who have molested little boys or girls. But with any other following of people, we have our weekness to. Being a Christian isnt about saying we are any better than a non Christian, its about saying we are all the same, and unlike any other group of people I have been around in my life, my Christian friends have been the best at giving me support in who I am, helping me when I am down, and moving forward to become a better human being.
I know, I dont like reading big novel posts, and I do not like writing them, but this is something close to my heart, but yet I do not get upset about it, I feel sad for all who reject Christ, and want every one to at least make an effort to educate them selves before making a decision like this. Some people say Christians force thier opinions on others, but lets look at it this way. What if you found the best thing in the world to you(Money, endless suped up Jeeps, or everlasting life), and thier is enough to share to everyone, never running out, would you keep it to yourself? Or would you share it with the world?
I will leave it with that last sentence. If you would like any information that might educate you, or maybe you think your educated enough, and would like to have a little ongoing debate, please give me a PM. No worries of me getting offended, I love debates. I just would not like to have a flame war start here as I am newer here, like this site, and would not like to cause problems
