What specific words, acts or attitudes in Christians offends nonChristians?


The Scriptures enjoin followers of Jesus to adorn the gospel with our lives. What are the most common infractions of this instruction? What offends nonChristians? Think of something a little more specific than the common charge of hypocrisy.

    Thanks, Eric. Didn't Saul turned Paul on the road to Damascus have the same problem? It took him three years to to develop discernment to go with his new found zeal for the gospel.

    That is very interesting. Time for non-believers to start pushing back. Pol Pot, Hitler, Mao, Stalin we are all non-believers of something. I am just saying if our mere existence pisses you off, well the resulting logic ends badly.

    Thanks for your answer, arellcast. I agree that often it's Christians who are offended. But that goes with the territory. Jesus warned us that if they hate the master they will hate the disciples. I wrote a hub on this last week. Check it out.

    Yes, sometimes Christianities worst enemies are Christians. It's not Christianity that "instills callous disregard", it's immature Christians and misguided Christian zealots.

    I know non-believers have their issues, but we are not free of fault. I wonder what it is we do that offends the world. Wouldn't it be a tad arrogant to assume that whenever there's conflict it's the unbeliever's fault?
