Downsides of Religion by LadyVe Downsides of Religion by LadyVe
Funny quote from my family.

As a Christian, I'm proud of my faith, but that doesn't say I don't get annoyed with my fellow Christians, nor am I the greatest example of the religion. And let's face it: as much good as Christians have done for the world, they've done at least as much bad. Most religions are like that, sadly.

I've always wondered, Do you actualy truely genuinely belive in the virgin birth, in miricles in a god who answers prayers and heven? If so do you look farward to death and avoid living healthly? Do you not get freaked out by the fact your logo is a dead guy on a stick?

I have autism and i realy dont understand. I know christians who clearly derive comfert from their faith but they realy dont like being asked these questions.

also I dont understand what it is your proud of can you explain?

Sorry if the question are too personal.

I like te idea that gods bigest problem is a lazy PR rep.

If I have to be honest, I don't believe in a lot of these things. I believe in a Christian moral set above anything (helping your fellow people and treating them with dignity), but for the rest I don't really know what to think nor that I think it's important just whether Jesus was born from a virgin (he at least tried to do something good for people who were outcasts by society) or not or whether the Red Sea truly parted because of God (reality check: the Red Sea actually parts on its own at specific times. It has to do with natural cycles).
As for God answering prayers: he gave us a brain, two feet and two hands and a common sense: if you want something done, get off your butt and do it yourself. On death and heaven, please no. Heaven would be nice at the end of the road, but I prefer a long, healthy life and do everything to attain that and very much like to find my happiness while I'm still here. As for a dead guy on a cross as a logo (note, we use ONLY the cross, which isn't really specific to Christianity: crucifixtion was a common Roman death sentence for riot leaders and troublemakers, there are more religions whose patron saint/prophet etc died violently so it doesn't bother me so much.

thank you for answering. what would you say difines a christian? If I were to give you a group of people and ask you to lable tham as christian or not christian what are the things you would look for in those people (in terms of beliefe and behaviour and so on)

Its a bit of an abstract question i know and I'll understand if there is no real consensus on the answer.

thanks again

I would only label those as Christians who live by the Christian code of tolerance, respect and trying to make the world a better place. The people at the Westboro church, for example? They're not Christians: they're sick, brainwashing and disgusing homophobic maniacs who aren't worhy of the name.

Well there's no denying there's alot of loudmouthed idiots parading their episteme (their understanding of how the world is) like it's some dogma that everyone should follow.
I for one think that everyone would be alot better of if we considered eachothers understanding of the world as we consider eachothers favourite movie: Something we may not totaly agree on, but as long as there's a reasoning to it we should accept it as their favourite.
