It's not about the rules, and it's not about religion: it's about a relationship.  That is truly what being a Christian is -- trusting and having a close relationship with Jesus.

Christianity is not only a religion but a belief and  a way of life.  Man needs something larger than themselves to believe in.  I am a believer.  I believe that Christ is the Son of God and i live by faith.

 I'm a Christian myself. Take that for what its worth, I guess.
#5 | 1713 days ago

I'm not a Christian, but I do live by what would be considered, by many, to be inherently "Christian" beliefs (morals and values, etc.).  I think a lot of the core principles of Christianity are great to live by ... just seems that, in practice, it loses a LOT of luster since so many I've seen take it to extremes.

 Fundamentalism in any religion is wrong.  I don't like when people use their religion to hold themselves above others.  A literal interpretation of the bible can and often is a dangerous thing. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you is really all we need in this life to be Godly. I am very much a believer in a higher power, I just don't close my eyes and say no one else's opinion on what that is, is wrong. And that to me in my opinion is where Christianity loses so many people.

Grew up going to Christian churches & attended Sunday schools, got the important things (morals & values) out of it.  To me, they are the punchlines, and everything else is filler.  Kind of like Aesop's Fables.

Christianity is all about Jesus, THE only Son of God. Belief in Jesus is the ONLY way into Heaven (God's house). God made the rules and the rules are very simple to understand. NOTHING else matters except the belief and acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. That's what Christianity is all about.

I TRY!  to try, to do what God wants me to do. I have been for about 40 years. I'm probably successful half the time. As for Christians asking "are you saved?" and so forth, the Bible tells them to do this, it doesn't ask them to do it, it TELLS them to help ppl get saved. Jesus would usually try once while on Earth, if you weren't interested, he's outta there. He was not a salesman. It didn't mean he didn't want you "saved" because he IS the saver, or aka the Savior. He felt what he was offering was/is very valuable. Before Jesus was born ppl could not be saved, but they were saved later...sort of. He is the only saver or you are saved through him, according to the Christian faith, and that's what I believe. That is his purpose. I'm doing some paraphrasing here and this is not the big picture, its a little piece of it. Maybe someone (More knowledgeable Christian) can explain why people could not be saved before Jesus was born. It can be complex.

I'm very happy, and respect that you are dedicated to the belief of your faith.  However, unless you've personally met the divine, that is not something that can be defined as absolute.  Not only with religion, but with many facets of human existence where differences in belief and conviction oppose one another, the best approach is to seek understanding, judge each individual for their qualitative nature, surround yourselves with good people, and practice mutual respect for one anther's differences.

For me, I have little doubt I'll end up in Asgarð, but as my days of being a warrior are long over it won´t be in Valhalla.  Most likely, I´ll end up in Himinbjörg with my patron Deity Heimdallr.  In the elder Norse beliefs, Helheimr (English = Hells home) isn´t the worst place one can live in the afterlife--it is cold, dark, and a place where there is little activity because those who are sent are punished with an existence of contemplation for their ill-deeds in Midgarð (what we refer to as Earth).  The two worst realms one can be sent is Niflheimr or Muspellheimr.  These realms are for the worst of individuals; Niflheimr is the realm of ice--reserved for those who's despicable existence was focused upon the elements of manipulation, deception, and lies--those in this realm wreak havoc and punish one another to be preyed upon endlessly the way they did so to others in life; Muspellheimr is the realm of fire--for those who committed physical crimes or other forms of abuse (such as sadistic intimidation) against others--it is an existence of 'survival of the fittest' and 'only the strong survive' where their afterlife is dominated by preying upon one another as they did to others in life.

I hope I portrayed this alright.  It's vague (only a brief sharing), but I'm also at the tail-end of the medication I received at the dentist so for all I know, I could be typing a copy of song lyrics I heard at the dentists.....time for a nap.....LOL!

Like having GAY rights and many other things pushed down ours?  Trust me, we feel your pain.

I don't see anyone trying to pass a law that makes you go to chruch...for example, prayer in schools wasn't forced, if you didn't want to pray don't but now it's not even an option.  Choice...that is why HE didn't create a planet full of already fully programed robots.  You have it...not sure that anyone is trying to take that from you.

Religion is a term applied to anyone with a belief system but a true CHRISTIAN isn't religious at all, it's a one on one relationship with Jesus Christ, trust me when I tell you...there is a HUGE difference.

Not exactly true Kobe...from all I can gather, HELL is not a nice place to spend forever in.

But again, each person comes to that on his/her own and a true believer would just be there to help in any way possible.  I don't have an issue with folks that don't believe.  Living life in a total and complete relationship with the LORD is a hard task and by no means would that point to perfection, all fall short of the glory but as the saying goes...not perfect, just saved.

Seriusly, do you even know what the "Gays" want as far as their "RIGHTS"?   All they WANT is what they are GUARANTEED by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights! Nothing more- nothing less!  Nothing is being FORCED down anyones throat....

They want a bit more than that, they want it taught in schools as a alternative lifestyle, the foundation of marriage re-wrote...etc, they have a larger 'END GAME' but I tell ya like I told Kitty, you and I are friends and will just have to agree to disagree on the subject.

You edited on me...you show me where it's in the Constitution or the Bill of Rights that it's okay to have affairs, marry more than one wife/husband...etc.  Same rule applles, all are moral areas and that is the same with homosexuals. 

Can I expect to see it being passed that affairs are no longer grounds for divorce?  Or laws passed that  (and yes, they are wanting laws passed...meaning they aren't covered somewhere in those aforementioned great documents) say just go out sleep with who you want too...it's your right in your pursuit of happiness. 

Now I'm being funny but you kinda see where I'm going with this right?

In many States, affairs are NOT grounds for divorce anymore and haven't been for years!  Also, there are NO LAWS in any State forbidding Homosexuals or their "sexual practices" either- therefore their Rights should be EXACTLY the same as yours- but they are NOT! If that isn't "morality" overshadowing the U.S. Constitution- then please enlighten me to what it is besides PURE BIGOTRY and Discrimination without any grounds......

Define Sodomy?    I'll help you, sodomy is any sexual act that is not the "missonary position"- either male or female!  So if you are going to use THAT terminology to define what is illegal then I suggest that you NEVER have sex out of marriage or practice ANYTHING other than the missonary position with your spouse or YOU are breaking the law.  Sorry Elvis, but that was kind of a weak argument there!   
Main Entry: sod·omy
Pronunciation: \ˈsä-də-mÁ\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Anglo-French sodomie, from Late Latin Sodoma Sodom; from the homosexual proclivities of the men of the city in Gen 19:1–11
Date: 13th century

: anal or oral copulation with a member of the same or opposite sex; also : copulation with an animal

It is settled that religiosity varies inversely with wealth accumulation and educational attainment; I opt for the latter and will take my chances in an afterlife in which I disbelieve.  I understand the appeal of Christianity (or any organized religion, really), though, and I think that what was once a sneering contempt for what I regarded as the necessary provinciality of people of faith has evolved into a reserved pity, at least for those who live that faith pacifically.

homosexual do have other options. it's not just about anal for gay men. and that also ignores lesbians as well. I was just pointing out the silliness of pointing out sodomy as being illegal and linking that directly to homosexuality only.

And about the prayer issue. The only people that get up in arms about the "prayer in schools" issue are devout Christians. Teachers cannot reprimand anyone for privately praying, but the school cannot have teachers and coaches leading the class in a Christian prayer. How is that fair to all the non-Christians in the class? Of course, a lot of Christians don't care or think about how that would make the other kids feel. That's essentially what makes me exasperated on the issue. Like throwing up a big ten Commandments sculpture on a public school lawn. OK, then put up Islamic calligraphy in the hallways too. And Hindu paintings in the cafeteria. And a big menorah in the classroom during hannukah.

Do you remember the story of King David? David believed and praised the Lord, he loved him with all his heart, He was saved and favored in Gods Eyes, God Talked to him and he listened, No it's not the same type of saving that we think of today but it is on the same principle. David did as God told him to do and God answered David and this was before Jesus. Yes Jesus did give his life so all our sins would be forgiven and he is always with us even if we don't want him in our life.

#56 | 1683 days ago

I don't think ppl understand how Jesus can give HIS life for OUR sins. For the longest time when I was a kid, even in my teenage yrs, I didn't understand it. I finally talked to a few preachers and men of the cloth that explained. Back then they believed in offering a sacrifice. Such as sacrificial lambs, etc. Someone, especially someone not human, but, would become human had to do this, it HAD to be Jesus, Gods son. That was the only way. We could no longer deal with God directly. Jesus became the Mediator. Yeah, I know, deep, complex, just like I said. Man over the years has made Christians look bad, tainted their image. I can see how its turned some ppl off, But, thats when you have to see the big picture, its not about man or woman, its about Jesus. I'm hardly a good example for a good Christian, so I won't get on here and pretend I'm some holy man, far from it. I just know and personally believe, there is a God and there was a Jesus. Thats about all I can add to the subject.
