As a Christian, do you think of atheists and agnostics as lesser people ? Please care to elaborate.

    lone77star. Thank you for your interesting comment. We all should be able to get along without others convictions getting in the way, but it's not as easy as it seems. I too learn from other people even though I don't always agree with their views.

    Attikos, thank your for voicing your opinion with which, I have to say, I agree entirely. It's very nice to enjoy a constructive debate without (so far!) anybody getting out the heavy artillery

    snapbackbetty, thnaks for being here and participating. I don't consider myself a Christian,but, like you, I try to respect everybody. I hate to say this, but there are a few so called Christians here on HP who think they are better than everybody

    Thank you Teacherjoe52 for being here. There is Christianity, a group of people who, because of the examples they follow and teach, should be close to beyond reproach. I hate to say that on occasion, my morals are better than some Christians I know.

    Thank you for your input, SwordofManticorE. I agree with you and it is refreshing to have met through this question quite a few people who think that way.

    Hi Wesley and thank you for stopping by. Would it be fair to say that considering that someone lives a life "less fullfilling" based uniquely on religious beliefs is a way of looking down on such people ?

    Thank you Genaea for your response. Not being a Christian doesn't mean being closed to discussion, and on that we certainly agree. Like you, I can deal with anybody, as long as other people respect my choices

    Actually, these verses (Revelation 3:15-17) describe the consequences of those in a church who believe they have it all together when, in reality, they are in a desperate condition.

    Back up Eric. I think what austin is trying to get across here is that athiests and agnostics do not "walk" with Him. They don't go to church & worship him. So austin was wondering if that made them appear as lesser beings in the eyes of a Christ
