Why Do People "Hate Them Christians"?
You don't have to read this if you don't really want to.


So, lately, I've been asking myself, "Why do people keep complaining about 'Christians' protesting, 'Christians' being idiots and 'Christians' being stupid because of what they believe?"

Now. Let me tell you what you're actually complaining about. You're complaining about the loud, annoying Christians that are SO wrapped up in "rules" or the religion, that they have to time to remember what this religion is really about. This is NOT how most of us are. Those are the only ones you know of, because those are the ones that are bugging you. You haven't taken the time to get to know any others.

Christianity is having the qualities or spirit of Jesus. It's being Christlike. We're trying to be more like Jesus Christ. Trying to be more acceptable in God's eyes. Not PROTESTING. Not COMPLAINING. That's not why we're here.

ALSO, you guys have to stop expecting Christians to be perfect. We're humans, we're not perfect. That's the reason Jesus came along. So he could die for us, he was the sacrifice to get rid of the guilt and sin, and we could get into heaven.

In the bible, it says this:
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved."

Basically, Jesus was sent here to forgive us of our sins. Ok? Ok.

(This is SO copied and pasted:)
God knew that there was no possible way that we could ever have any association with Him because of our sin. Knowing that we could not erase even one sin on our own, He loved us so much that He sent His Son Jesus into the world. Since Jesus never sinned, He did not have to die. Still, He chose to die on the cross for the sins of all people. He became the “perfect sacrifice” for all our sins, and God accepted His death for our sins as payment in full! Therefore, Jesus became the “bridge” between us and God.

Now, I know that homophobic Christians are hypocrites. So, if a Christian is a homophobe and freaks out using the excuse "homosexuality is a sin", then you can point out that the Bible says that all sins are the same in God's eyes. So, since homosexuality is a sin, then it's the same as when they've just judged this gay person. Judging people is a sin.

SUP AT THIS IS JESUS TALKING:
"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye."

Anyways, I just needed to say this because when you guy say things like "Oh, wow. Those stupid Christians are making more churches. They're ruining the world, LOLZ 1 H8 D3M!!1!" It HURTS my FEELINGS because this is my life. This is what I believe. Without this, I have nothing worth living for. Just the fact that God loves me, and that's all that really matters.

I don't even know what I'm saying anymore. But I know that I mean it.

Dude you made some valid points. I'm protesting tomorrow for gay marriage and there are going to be a lot o f radical hypocritical christians there telling me that gays shouldn't be married. Do you know what passage that says all sins are the same in god's eyes?

Good looks.

You're MY favorite CHRISTIAN!

I don't know of any verse that directly says that all sins are the same, but I know James 2:10.

"For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it"

That's the closest thing I know. It's just saying that any sin is still a sin, no matter how "bad" we think it is, and that's enough to make you not good enough to be in God's presence. That's probably not direct enough for what you want though.

I know. It's kind of dissapointing how SO many people are pushed away from it just because of a few people that are complete idiots.
