I'm a christian and I think I'm right. Well, not "myself", but my point of view, rather.

Another girl is an athiest and she thinks her athiesm is right.

A guy may be a ... I don't know the word for this, he believes in reincarnation or whatever. He thinks his thing is right.

So please, stop picking on other beliefs.
Not trying to live up to the christian stereotype here, but some of us are pretty cool, and I really do encourage you to go to a church to learn truth.

And, as an accurate analogy, parents put down rules for their children, some seeming bad and some seeming good. But we do break the rules sometimes, which isn't really good but is a learning experience of how you shouldn't repeat the same action.

It's all perspective. Since this post is the way it is, people will have a negative view of christians, however, if a post were to be said in a way where a christian guy did something amazing or another interesting analogy, christianity would be veiwed as cool.

And plus, since when have you ACTUALLY met a christian who ALWAYS dresses in church-y clothes, ALWAYS talks about God, like EVERY SECOND, and absolutely HATES anything that has nothing to do with him? I mean there's some that radiate with "innocence", but isn't that refreshing?

Buddhism, Judaism

i was a hardcore christian for the first 8 years of my life
then i hated churches but was still christian till 11
then i was atheist
i'm sorry, but i USED to go to church, but i will not go back for i see no reason to give money to faith

no it wouldn't

i have, he actually tried killing a group of 5 atheists, he killed 2 of them, that was when i was 6 fyi, so a long while ago, but still, you said have i actually...well yes i have

your church makes you give money? Well, that's just wrong, but what people usually do is freely and willingly give money to the church or to a ministry. I don't blame you for leaving a church that has a fee for cash.

.....I'm confused. Who's "he" that killed 2 athiests?
User avatar #67 to #65 - derpyhoovesmuffins (02/17/2012) [-]
it was when i was 6, so 31 years ago
User avatar #66 to #65 - derpyhoovesmuffins (02/17/2012) [-]
how was i supposed to know the name, i was 6 way back then
but he was shouting stuff saying atheist don't deserve to live
User avatar #68 to #66 - AnonymousWraith (02/17/2012) [-]
so this was just some "christian" guy? You didn't clarify it too much, so that's what I assume. If "he" was a "christian" but tried to kill a group of athiest, then he is obviously wrong and not following God's word. Did you know those people that died or something?

walking home the 4 miles one day
no, it was about 2 miles from where my school was
User avatar #70 to #69 - AnonymousWraith (02/17/2012) [-]
Well, that incident, although not clarified very well, shouldn't give you a reason not to be a christian. Just realize that, that guy was wrong and that is definately not something that God would tell you to do.

oh and.... you're trolling me, aren't you?

>MFW you say I along with other Christians, I am a Christian and I don't respect some peoples opinions, therefore I will not be biased as 1 unit, I mean I respect atheists opinions ,but not the retarded atheists that rant all the time about how Christianity is retarded. I also don't respect the Dumb Catholics, Christians,ect that feel the need to argue with said retarded atheists.

I'm pretty sure Buddhism or Hinduism was the word for "Reincarnation or whatever".

Tells them to learn his truth because he's right

A lesson in letting people do as they wish......

From a Christian!

I never told you to go to church,
I said I ENCOURAGED you to do so.

**** you asspussy.
User avatar #23 to #13 - professorbag (02/16/2012) [-]
hahaha "learn the truth" that made me chuckle a bit
User avatar #19 to #13 - fireprincess (02/16/2012) [-]
Oh and I believe Buddhism is the religion you were looking for....
User avatar #18 to #13 - fireprincess (02/16/2012) [-]
But have you never looked at your religion and thought, maybe I'm wrong? You've never looked at another religion and though that maybe, just maybe, they have it right?

And that line, " I really do encourage you to go to a church to learn truth" is one of the reasons people don't like Christians.

It's not like this post is going to change the way people look at Christians. Even if there was one about a cool christian or whatever, it wouldn't make people go, "Oh, I was wrong. Christianity is awesome!!"
User avatar #59 to #18 - AnonymousWraith (02/16/2012) [-]
I have, in the past. But I am now confident in my faith.
Well, I just figured all of the things I said beforehand would have made sense once I said "the truth." Don't you get it? It's what I believe is the truth, so therefore, I'm going to say it's the truth! If someone else thought otherwise, they would referr to the truth as being what they believe to be the truth!

ive thought about that stuff before and im a christian

<---- Atheist, but nice to see an actual response to a religion-supporting comment rather than the auto-flame response others give.
User avatar #22 to #21 - fireprincess (02/16/2012) [-]
Why thank you. I was raised Christian so I understand the mindset of it.
User avatar #61 to #22 - AnonymousWraith (02/16/2012) [-]
Can you explain what you think the mindset is, please?
I'm not trying to pick a fight, I just wanna see your way of thinking for it.

User avatar #62 to #61 - fireprincess (02/17/2012) [-]
It's hard to explain, but I'll try.

Well there's the love/fear of God. It makes it hard to stray away from the religion for fear of eternal damnation. When you're raised with everyone telling you if you're not saved or you don't believe in God, it's hard to think that maybe it's wrong for that fear. I understand this because I've been there. Fighting with myself over whether it's right or not. Only believing because it's what's been told, not because I feel it's right. Questioning it, but always brought back by the fear of, maybe it's right and I'll go to hell.

I hope that explains my thoughts some. Sorry if it's confusing or anything. It's kind of a jumble in my head so it's hard to get out.
User avatar #63 to #62 - AnonymousWraith (02/17/2012) [-]
no, I understand.

I didn't grow up with everyone telling me I wasn't saved (because as I was growing up I admitted I did believe in Jesus, even before I really made my faith my own), but the way you said "when you're raised with everyone telling you if you're not saved" it makes me assume that you grew up christian but didn't believe? I can't say I've been in your shoes, but I do emphathize (spellcheck?) with you, sir.

Honestly, when I was younger, about middle school aged, my only reason for believing in God was soley to avoid hell, and that was in vain. Now that I am older, I believe in God because, well, I believe that He is real, and I want a relationship with Him.

Thanks for sharing, even though we don't quite see eye to eye. :)

'I really do encourage you to go to a church to learn truth.' truth?
#17 to #16 - anon (02/16/2012) [-]
Apparently 'truth' is selective when talking about religion
That **** wouldn't fly in a court of law
#14 to #13 - anon (02/16/2012) [-]
It's because of people like you that I don't want people to know I'm Christian (logged out just to say this)
