You know what? Just stop. All of this going back and forth about how horrible Christians are is just ridiculous. Let me just ease your mind right now.
No, you read that right — I.agree.
Christians can be some of THE most unscrupulous, immoral, judgmental, nasty, elitist minded, self-righteous people you’ll ever meet.
*whew* Is everyone done throwing stones at me?
But, with all of that said, I have crossed paths with some of the most giving, loving, open-hearted, kind, loyal and trust-worthy Christ followers in my life. This post has the potential to be a two part post because, I can talk about the horrible side of Christianity and the cast system that has been created, while on the other hand I can talk about people who call themselves *good, atheists* who are so set to hate Christians that whenever the moment arises they take potshots.
What? Who is worse? The Christian with a biblical duty to love his brother as himself (which hardly ever happens anymore because it’s all about number 1, right?) Or the non-believer with their own set of morals and standards and no higher power to answer to (in their book). I say they’re both bad. But the *Christian* has more to answer for. They have a specific set of guidelines which shows them how to be a wonderful, loving person to all mankind! The atheist sort of follows the path of the self-governor inside. They have basic standards which most likely entail: be kind, don’t kill, don’t steal, share….yada, yada. I’m not going to speak on the behalf of an atheist’s belief system, but I will say that all humans, God-fearing or not, have the SAME DUTY:
Grow up to become a responsible citizen of this country.
Now, is that too much to ask? So, don’t go around telling me and the world what a wonderful person you are when you hate Christians. And how you hate the hate of the hateful Christians, when you’re hating just the same.
And, please, you *Christian* do yourself a favor and go read your bible. You missed the part about love, kindness, being non-judgmental (of course when the bible shows us how to judge/discern, that’s different), setting aside prerequisites to be in your *popular club* at church, gossip, offense, backbiting, showing discretion(GOsH, now, that is a lost art) … yeah, all of the important details that make up who a Christ follower is.
If you’re a tree, and your actions are your fruits, it doesn’t take a genius to see there is something wrong. It doesn’t even take a judgmental eye to see there is something wrong. Please fix it, because you’re making it harder on the rest of us who are really trying to make a difference in this world.
And furthermore, not all atheists are bad, just like not all Christ followers are bad. Generalizing really leaves a lot of good people with a bad, unwarranted shadow over their heads, hmm, not good.
Yes I do have a bee in my bonnet and I stand by every word I’ve typed here.
I have taken liberties on my blog, because it’s my blog, this is NOT Facebook and I don’t mind being extremely opinionated on my place in the internet.
