Why would you say no to love and friendship?

    I am a Christian and I believe Jesus is the Christ and my personal savior. I also enjoy the love and friendship that my association with Christianity brings into my life. I don't understand why people would say no to love or friendship. How can you have too much of either?

    If you get love and friendship from your faith then that's brilliant... but as a non-believer myself, I'd also say that it's morally wrong to join a faith (or indeed any organisation) that you don't believe in just in order to make friends.

      Thats fair but when you're surrounded by sincere people who really care it's hard not to believe because there's something there you can feel it.

        It sounds as though you're very lucky to have met a nice bunch of people.  It could be that I'm an old curmudgeon, but being surrounded by caring people who happen to hold the same belief isn't automatically going to make me subscribe to that belief as well.  I need more than that - and that applies to *all* philosphies/beliefs, not just religion.
