Christian Myths


When reading Christian Bible or even common Christian saying and hymns, one can easily point out numerous contradictions and confusing aspects of the faith, providing confusion among many followers while fueling the fire for non-believers. Whether you are now coming to a place in your life where you find religion to be healing and soothing, or you have been a life-long follower, the contradictions and myths associated with Christianity are hard to ignore. When dealing with common Christian myths, tread carefully as denouncing the Church could be a very treacherous proposition. This article will serve to uncover a few of the most common Christian myths and determine a better understanding of them while providing unique insight into what one could truly believe.

Christian Life Management


Most Christians, at some point throughout the faith, question their unrelenting following of God, particularly when life becomes tough. The Christian faith teaches that God rewards those that follow him without question while allowing for prosperity and peace.

Unfortunately, life is often difficult for Christians while remaining poor and enduring numerous hardships. Of course, non-Christians suffer such things as well; however, numerous Christians often preach that following the Savior would immediately eliminate their woes. Many people questions as life become challenging and never relents, why God is punishing them. Contradictory in terms, a faithful and knowledgeable Christian should never suffer as their faith preaches.

Life of Freedom


Christianity often teaches that following the life of Christ through faith will set people free. This is perhaps ironic that there are many laws in faith and society that restrict certain freedoms. Of course, following Christ faithfully comes with certain religious doctrines and creeds that must be followed at all time to be termed as a faithful Christian.

When following such rules, Christian myth believers often feel this is contradictory as the rules followed restrict complete freedom from the doctrines of Christ. If questioned or not followed, many Christians believe that they will suffer the wrath of God for not remaining faithful and true to the teachings and words of the Gospel.
