How can Christianity control people? Wanna talk about the people who are shooting abortion doctors in the name of Christianity? How about the people who are discriminating and denying gays equal rights for civil unions and marriage, because they believe homosexuality is a sin?
Wanna talk about the bigoted bullshit some pull on each other? Compare Northern and Southern Baptists.
You can't get that kind of bigotry without someone pulling the strings via the preachings.
We both know if someone is "shooting" abortion doctors "in the name Christianity they aren't listening to Jesus Christ! Besides how is that "controlling" other people? It's just plain horribly wrong and a sin. Ever hear of false teachers and prophets in the Bible? That happens too and Satan uses it big time to deceive the hell out of people. (Harold Camping, Jim Jones and Manson, etc... as someone mentioned in another thread) The list goes on.
And homosexuality IS a sin according to the Bible. What, people can't have their faith in God and believe that something is a sin? And they can't exercise their right to vote for those they believe have the same values? Believing something is a sin doesn't mean alot of Christians don't accept others... just the "accepting" party has a conviction deep within whether they recognize it or not so they kick against it. We all have sinned and done things wrong - step up if you never have - I'll gladly give ya medal! lol
Keep it up!!! Before long freedom of religion will be wiped out soon, ya Nazi! Goes back and forth ya know. Perhaps unbelievers are the ones trying to "control" believers?? Hmmm? LOL Sheesh!
There isn't a problem believing Homosexuality is a sin. This is America, you can believe what you want. Just STFU about it.... simple as that. You are not without sin. Who are you to judge others?
The problem isn't about the biblical concept of sin. One sin is no better/worse than another in God's eyes. So... while some rail against homosexuality, others about abortion and yet others about addiction... they are committing an extra sin on top of the skeletons in their closets... they are judging.
unbelievers trying to control believers? Gimme a break. I am a life long Christian and have NEVER felt threatened by an Atheist. But for once in your life... put your feet in their shoes.
How would you feel if there was a predominant group of people in the country in which you live that felt that Barney the Purple Dinosaur was our God and savior, and most of the rules that we live by were from "Barney's Book of Secrets"? You, being a Christian would very much feel threatened by this country's obsession with Barney.... when You know for a fact that Barney is a dude in a purple dinosaur suit.
They don't care what we believe... they just don't want to be subject to the rules we try to live by.
I think you're misunderstanding something and also the part where I said "We've all sinned." I wasn't judging , I was pointing out that it's part of our faith that it is a sin. Don't even know why you started the convo like you did either, it was what I said too.
May I please ask you, who is Jesus Christ to you and when did He come into your life?
