Have you noticed that Christians are mocked at, looked down upon and patronized by some Hubbers? (Ironically, these are or must be Christians in their official records) It does not necessarily anger me and I presume, my fellow Christians. But the tone of their haranguing and the all-knowing attitude with nary a considerate thought for Christians may get on some people's nerves.
It is appalling that these people have been born Christians and live among Christians all around yet blind to basic good behavior, rant on unmindful of their looking like arrogant gentlemen (an oxymoron, this?) who are begging to be shown their place.
Many Christians in the past have left, not wanting to be offended any more or even not be forced into offending.
I am not about to do that but can't these people at least behave civilly?
No offense meant, gentlemen!
The passive aggressive nature of this attack on non believers, pretty much sums up why your belief system receives little consideration. All the time you continue to attack others in this fashion - you will be put in your place.
As for this nonsense about being Christians in their "official records" - yes - I was abused as a child and indoctrinated into your cult. So what? I rejected it as soon as I was old enough to think for myself.
Just exactly what is it you think you have done as a christian to deserve anything other than contempt?
Love the oxymoron/gentlemen attack, by the way. Wonderful - very christian - very passive/aggressive. Do you think that is the way to go about garnering respect for your irrational beliefs? Or do you think you could see through to that being why you are getting no respect?
Look carefully at your belief system and ask why it is not getting any respect before lashing out at those of us who are putting you in your place as you have asked for.
''Good morning!'' thirdmillenium. This suprises you? Only because somebody calls him/herself a Christian means he or she is this exactly? Some people live deep morality (and superficial) and not faith (these are two different terms). Don't trouble yourself with this, Jesus was mocked at, and taking the role of a true Christian you take what follows and that's not an easy life, not to mention difficulties in human relations. Just say your prayers, head up, ''arm yourself with God and his angels'' and go on without nervousness.
thirdmillenium, if any Christian has walked away because they are surrounded by non-Christians or non-Christian attitude - then they have walked away from their duty to Christ, Christians are supposed to lead by example, if they walk away then they have turned their back on Christ, simple as that, you should not try to make excuses for people who have turned their back on Christ, the people who expose themselves here to critism (whatever their attitude to God and Man) are much better people than those who have walked away, if anyone has indeed walked away, your proposition is not credible, so if your a Christian lead by example and dont hide behind weakness I have done out reach work and I have stood where few would have stood...I did not run away even when kicked to the ground and threatened with death.....
Official records - what nonsense! Yes, I was baptised Catholic as a baby, but that is not stated on any official record. Since then, I've explored a lot and found my own spiritual path. As this was a private process of discovery, I don't impose my beliefs and views on anyone else, although I gladly discuss them with like-minded people when the environment is right to do so.
I feel totally comfortable with atheists, even though they probably think me a weirdo in their own minds. No atheist has ever tried to convert me to atheism. We each live our own lives and find our own meanings to those lives.
In contrast, evangelical Christians think they have to harangue me constantly because I do not share their views. I did spend a couple of years exploring evangelical Christianity, but found it did not sit at all well with me. Suddenly, people who had been professing their love and friendship for me, ostracised me totally just because I dared say that their way was not for me.
Give me a fervent atheist at any time. At least I can have a good discussion and friendly banter with them.

Why do fellow Hubbers fawn over a Hub filled with errors?Many times I will see an attention grabbing title and within the first sentence there will be a misspelling of a word. Okay, to err is human and we have all made typographical errors. However, in proceeding further into the story presented I...
