Home > Afraid of Christianity
do people act as though they are afraid of Christianity?
told not to wear a necklace with a cross to work; monuments with
the Ten Commandments are torn out of public buildings; nativity
scenes can't be displayed at Christmas; prayer in public places
is banned; all signs of Christianity are being removed from America.
Why are people acting as though they are afraid of Christianity?
Are Like Telemarketers
Some say Christians
are always trying to push their beliefs onto other people.
is that Christians do not want to force anyone else to become a
Christian -- because it can't be done. Becoming a Christian
is a matter of what is in your heart. A person can be forced to
proclaim Christ as their Lord and savior with their mouth, but unless
it is in that person's heart the words are meaningless.
I would be interested
in your thoughts and comments. If someone carrying a Bible were
to knock on your door and say, "I am a Christian and I'd like
to talk to you about Christ.", how
would you react?
Would you invite
the person in, or send them away? What would you say to them?
Think They Have The Only Way To Salvation
says that the only way to salvation and eternal life is by believing
in Jesus as God. Everyone else goes to hell. That is intolerant
of other people's beliefs--beliefs that are just as valid as
Christianity that is) is a tolerant religion.
Christianity does not support the persecution of any person, culture
or other religion. While recognizing that Christ is the only way
to salvation, and desiring that all be saved, Christians
do not feel that non-Christians are to be despised, discriminated
against, harmed, harassed or persecuted in any way. Non-Christians
are to be loved.
are correct. People calling themselves "Christian"
do not behave in the way the BIble teaches us a Christian should.
There are tho
issues involved here.
1) People who
call themselves Christian are not
really Christian. For example, some people think that if you
are an American, you are a Christian. Some people think that if
they go to church occaissionally, they are a Christian. Neither
of these are true.
Anyone can call
themselves a Christian, but it is through our behavior that we show
who we really are.
are not perfect. We make mistakes and sometimes do things we should
not have done.
Do you feel
you already know all you need to know about Christianity?
In some countries
a Christian knocking on doors might be jailed and possibly executed.
In some countries it is illegal to openly carry a Bible. And in
America, where freedom reigns, we also persecute Christians--but
in different ways. Why is that?
