What is a Self-Righteous Christian?

Updated on September 8, 2011

Why are Believers made righteous?

I was led to a hub page written by an atheist last week. 'Atheism, in a broad sense, is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities.' (Websters Dictionary) I am not sure why I choose to read the authors protocol about Christians. I suppose I was curious as to his way of thinking. I was probably as 'lost' as he is, about his understanding of 'Christians' and the church, as I was about his unbelief. He broadsided Christianity out of the water with 'his own thinking'.

There is no possible way one can understand where we 'Christians' come from without the presence of the Holy Spirit in and on them. When one is 'born again' into Gods family they are a Child of God and filled with the Holy Spirit. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God to lift us, teach and guide us. Children of God learn and grow in wisdom and understanding of Christ. Just as a child learns to tie shoes and put on clothes. 'We believers' grow in the Knowledge of Christ. Just as people grow in knowledge of their career. Our Faith comes by hearing the written Word of God

This gentlemen believes we 'Christians' are a religion and are a 'self righteous' lot. He wonder's how we claim to wear the 'armor of God' which makes us all 'religious?' Yes, we do wear the armor of God by choice. By Faith In Gods word we know we are coverd in the armor. The Helmet of Salvation, the Breastplate of Righteousness. We carry the Shield and wear the Buckler. We carry the Sword, which is the, 'Name of Jesus.' Gods armor helps us to fight our battles. We have spiritual battles against powers and principalities of darkness. The evil in the World. I do not think there is any rebuttle on that one all we have to do is look out the window and see the evil and darkness. One could not understand spiritual principles unless they are born again of the Spirit of God. Christians believe in Gods Word and aspire to walk in His word and share the Good News of Salvation and living abundant life. Christianity is not a religion but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We Christians do not claim to be self-righteous.

Unfortunate, there are certain individuals or groups that come off as self righteous as any group or self centered individual, but we 'Christians' are made Righteous by the Blood shed on the Cross at Calvary by Jesus Christ. It is by the Blood of the Lamb that we are forgiven our sins. We make errors and we make mistakes. We are sinners. We lie, cheat, and steal. I lie, cheat, steal. I am not perfect. There is only one perfect His name is God. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

I imagine an atheist reading this may think this hub to be a foreign language just as I would think about evolution and molecules and the non existence of God to be foreign. There is a major difference in our belief's, there is no evidence that there is not a God. For thousands of years individuals or groups have tried to prove this non existence of God and it can not, nor has it been proven. Contrary, there is evidence God was, is and will always be and that He is alive. The evidence is found in prophecy that has come to pass and was written thousands of years ago.

I wonder why atheists, since they do not believe don't just ignore Jesus and let it be? You could just ignore Him and let the wicked ones tell us we offend them by our Merry Christmas or setting up a Nativity scene on public property. If you do not want the Godly life why is it that you write about one ? It seems to me that something is stirring inside of you to spend your oxygen to write about us Christians, being self righteous and religious.

God did give us free will to choose to believe in Him or not. May our Lord touch these individuals that do not believe. There is hope, until there is none. Religion is a man made dogma and how the 'denomination or religion' chooses to interpret the Word of God. Many from the pulpit twist scripture to suit themselves, which is wrong. Many will change scripture to fit their own agenda to draw others to the church. Many go to church to say they went and are good Christians only to spend that hour with the Lord. There are numerous scenarios.

True Christians are made righteous only because Jesus died on the cross for our sins so we could be made pure as snow and forgiven our sins. It does not mean we have no sin. We have sin just like everyone on the planet. God is the only one without sin. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. You see we Christians have the 'fear of the Lord' because we want to walk like Him and be made Holy for Him. The fear is we can not do it good enough. God understands and loves us still. We do not earn brownie points with God. We want to share goodness because of the love of God in us, because He loved us first. We Reverence our Holy Father. We choose not to be in the darkness but walk in the Light. It does not mean we think we are perfect and without error. Many will have the 'fear of God' that do not believe. It is written many will want mountains to fall on them because they have denied Jesus Christ as Lord.

Christians have a sixth sense a God consciousness. The power of the Holy Spirit is in us and stirs our hearts to lead and direct us in the way to go. The Bible is a letter for those that choose to open it and hear the word. Not all have eyes to see and ears to hear. The word is inspired by God and written by man inspired by the Holy Spirit to show us how to live. We know God was, is and always will be, by His Living Word. Much Prophecy, told over 5,000 years ago has come to pass. We have been 'foretold of all these things to come.' We know what is to come. Now some may have a different view because of teaching which is sad but true. Scripture is clear on events to come and many have come. We Christians are told we will be persecuted as Jesus was for His names sake. The name of Jesus. Many have died martyrs and many continue to die martyrs because they love the Lord God. Father, Son and Holy Spirit. One Unity, three different persons and three jobs in the God Head.

I do not write this so you will understand. I write as led by the Spirit in me. I pray that whomever comes may be touched with the Love of Christ. If you do not believe there is a reason you have read this far. Nothing is impossible with God and maybe your heart will be stirred? You may tell me to go jump in the lake or you may choose to read on.

Mr. Atheist and proud. You have no idea I read your hub on 'the Atheist.' I could not think of a comment. My mind was blank at the time. You have no problem in sharing with others, so I do not think you will have an issue with my hub if you should come over for a read and go figure.

I do not write because I am all that, but because I have a commission to share the Good News of Salvation and abundant life, with others. God wants none to perish. There are many that do not believe. I can only pray unbelievers consider a life with Christ. I know the misery I suffered until I asked Jesus into my heart. I had no peace. I felt like a lost child wandering around wondering what to be when I grew up. Nothing I tried filled the hole inside of me. Very few that I know of including me, went to God for help because they were riding a pink cloud or whistling 'Dixie.' Most went because they were near death or depressed or in deep do do. They were at the bottom of their pit. The 'world' and the 'system' was not working for them. Many were lonely, addicts. prostitutes, porn freaks, killers, liars, thief's, alcoholics, atheists, molesters, robbers, con artists, evil, broke and busted, heartbroken, confused, angry or bitter and sinners. We are all sinners. Jesus came for the sinners!!! All of His creation.

I have my defects of character. I have issues. Life is not lalways a walk on primrose lane. I love the Lord God and it is by His loving grace, mercy, kindness I stand today and live. I do have Gods word and promise. He is the only guarentee. Everything changes people change, companies change. God has not and does not change. He is the same. He is no respector of people. Who ever invites Him into their heart in sincerity will be a Child of Almighty God.

By all rights I should be dead. I am humble. I am meek. I do not deserve all that I have been given. I have a Blessed life. Joy. peace, love, gentleness, meekness, self control, kindness. No one can take my gifts of the spirit away unless I hand them over. No matter where we 'Christians' stand or sit we have a choice to receive the promises that Christ will always care for His Children. He is the Father and loves His Kids. He does not lie or change His mind. Thank God we do not have to earn brownie points for a ticket to heaven. If that were the case NO ONE would go into the pearly gates. God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. No matter how far down one has gone, Jesus will come and live in you and loves you. He twists no arms but waits at the door, if you knock Jesus will answer. He is a gentlemen and does not force one into HIs house. One must choose with the free will He gives to each one of us.

To Clarify, a "Christian' is only made righteous by the Blood of Jesus Christ. Gods son who was sent to the world to die for all of our sins. Which will it be? Forgiven and eternal life with, The Lord God or suffer death which is eternal separation from the Father, for all of eternity? Jesus died a brutal death so we could live and have life more abundant and not perish. John 10:10.Our 'spirits' go to Paradise when we pass from this planet. We go to one side or the other. Hell or Heaven. (Revelation) Know Jesus, Know Peace. No Jesus, No Peace.

To love God or not to love Him is a choice. If you do not love Him, you love yourself and the enemy, the devil who is Satan is thrilled, he has the non believer. God waits and will come for you. He defeated the enemy on the cross for you and I. Satan has a purpose to take all and any away from the true Savior. He hates that God loves ALL of His Creation. Satan has a purpose to steal, kill and destroy. If one looks out the blinds you can clearly see He is large at work. He is doomed to hell and knows His time is getting shorter he knows it and is working faster and harder to deceive many and harden hearts against Christ. He and his followers are doomed to the pit of Hell one day.

We make reservations for the next life, in this life. After this life guess what the reservation is already made. Christians do not claim to be all that. We do wear the 'armor of God' and sing 'Glory to God'. We share with others the good news of Salvation. 'God sent His only Son. God in human flesh to be born of a Virgin Mary to save us from our sins'. Matthew Chapter verse 15 to 25. The little baby born in a manger was not some hypo, theatrical DNA formed from a molecule. His name is Jesus Christ. His name also means Emmanuel, 'God with us' No one has to earn a place in Heaven. No one would make it if that were the case. We are made pure as snow because of the Blood of Jesus who died on the cross for us at Calvary over 2,000 years ago. Jesus is going to return. 'Every knee will bow and confess with his mouth He is Lord.' Isaiah 45:43. Many will want mountains to fall on them because they are so ashamed they denied the son of God. It is written.

I noticed in your hub the numerous comments. There was only one comment I saw out of many that were for God, unless I missed something. I wept for the lost. I recall how painful it was and how grateful I am today. For the most part all were passing the breath around spending time about the 'self righteous' Christian. God knows each and every heart. He knows where we come from.

We have a choice to believe in whatever we choose, but unless 'born again' John 3:16 the pearly gates will not be open for you. Does this make me self righteious? No I am sharing the truth as commissioned by God. I gladly gave up my misery for Christ. Now I know the truth. Life makes sense. It is written for us. There are no guessing games to go figure. Jesus is teh ticket to the pearly gates. It is written in the oldest text around. Most of what has been written has come to pass. The rest will come to pass. The 'world' is not going to get all better. Sorry to burst any bubble;s. Children of God will be protected. You can throw pies at me. I do not mind. There is one that has all power God. His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit who dwell in us.

This does not mean, 'we do not make errors or not suffer hard times. We do, we know by faith Jesus will be with us. We do not walk alone. Growing up is not easy. It is a journey, but there is no greater joy. that I have found then knowing Jesus' I thought I was having fun, that was a joke. I was dying and lonely. I was bitter not better. I was lost then found. I am eternally grateful.

Do not tell anyone you were never told, if you do not believe and are reading this hub of love. I pray for the 'lost'. I was there. I am human so I do get sad and angry and upset. I get happy, and need money and want nice things. I have provision. God supplies my needs. He desires all to live in the Blessing. I am human, born of the seed of Adam in line with his genealogy. I try to do better because God loved me first and I love Him. With His help all things are possible. I aspire to do His work and serve Him. I tell others what he has done for me. He saved my life and has Blessed me beyond measure. He has a home for His Children prepared in Heaven to spend eternity. There is not pain, not suffering and not tears. If one denies Jesus, He will be denied, by the Father God Heaven. Matthew 10:33. It is all written in the letter God gave to us.

The past, present and future. God says do not be deceived, 'I have told you all things'. Christ is going to return, after the Anti Christ. The enemy tries to play the fiddle and be God. He will do signs and wonders, but he is false. He is a louse. He was thrown from Heaven for wanting to be God. He is a fallen, slick, sly angel. He is evil and lures to and fro to devour and deceive.

Christians are righteous because Christ died for our sins and His Blood has us covered. Self righteous well I suppose one can certainly act that way or come off that way no matter the 'religion' or 'belief' I think it is a 'worldly' trait to be self seeking and self absorbed. Children of God do not depend on our selves. Thank God we do not have to. We blow it many times we work at being better. We have a Saviour and have a heart change. We have a helper. He paid a huge price so we could be free. I thank God because my ways availed me heartache, pain and shame. I have a living God to call on and He is always there. I have a peace and joy the world can not give. My life changed when I did not have to manage it on my own self thinking or self accomplished gain. By Faith, Gods Children are saved unto Grace and made in right standing with God the Father. We did not earn it. We asked the son Jesus into our hearts and repented of our sin. It is a free gift for all.

Many tell us Christians, they are offended by our self righteous ways. Sharing truth to help others from hell is not self righteous. Say we 'Christians' are right. Say you try the Jesus thing. One day you will be very thankful you heard the message.

No one asked Christians how they felt when asked to refrain from saying Merry Chrisms or putting up a manger in a public arena lest we offend a religious group, that do not believe. It matters little because we will continue to fight the Good fight for the cause of Christ. God is love who would not want love? The enemy of God is evil. Look around. Take off the blinders. God wants no one to perish. He has given us a commission to share the Good News of Salvation and abundant life. If one receives it beautiful, if not that is not our dilemma. Christians are seed planters. We are told by Jesus to wipe the dust from the feet and move on, if not received. We know we will be rejected, just as Christ was. The name of Jesus, saves and keeps us.

Self righteous not' we Christians' are God conscious. Jesus who shed His Blood for us so we would not perish. Personally I do not think Christians are offended that our vote does not count with many. We know where our treasures await us. We know our future is in eternal life in the light. do not need to prove to any that we are not a self righteous lot. Christ knows our hearts. We have our work cut out for us to carry the commission for Christ, In joy and love we do so with discernment. Without Christ it is impossible to understand. We know we are sinners and are forgiven. We realize we all fall short of, 'the Glory of God.' Christians included. We honor God and stand for God. We are not ashamed of our Lord and His Word. We know the truth we share the truth.I suppose that is why we have a label of 'self righteous Christians' with a certain lot.

The Lord God helps us to stand and it is by our Faith in Him that we know we are not alone. We know by Faith, He will never leave nor forsake us. We know where we go when we pass form this 'Ole' earth. Is this self seeking to desire to share the Good news so our neighbors do not perish? All scripture is inspired by God and we are not alone in 'the 'world' to fight our battles. Those that believe in Him will live and have eternal life in Heaven and not perish and suffer eternal torment. The light always puts out the dark. If one has not read the Bible then how could one be intent and sure there is no God? One must have eyes to see and ears to hear. Jesus Christ freely gives them to us in His Word. To understand and get wisdom and knowledge Jesus needs to be in the heart.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good Night. You are loved by an awesome God.

      Rebecca e, Hello my precious sister. I have been out of commission with my writing for a time. I have been travailing through many storms and have found no time to write. I miss the fingers going on this keyboard girl. I hope to be back at it like, now. Amen and Praise God.

      Many are going through far worse trials than what I endured. The Victor Jesus has brought us through the storms and He is amazing love. I have praise reports galore. We all will face some huge challenges in these days ahead.. The enemy roaring like a lion to devour. But he has no power when we are in Jesus unless we hand it over and our Lord has us covered never leaving us or allowing more than we can bare. We need to stand our ground girl. And tighten our belts of truth. Jesus is our ROCK and firm foundation. No one else will do. He is the whole filler. His mercies new each day. He so loves you dear sister. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Today is the day of salvation, Amen. Jesus is going to return soon. God Bless you real good my dear friend. In His name Jesus Christ. Your sister. Skye.

      Thank you so much for the visit I will be at your doorstep soon. I love you Rebecca E. Hugs Galore

      What you wrote is so true. God is love and why would anyone hate love. You do have the fake Christians and real Christians and people who don't believe try to judge all Christians because of how fake Christians act. I feel sorry for people who don't know the love of God because loving God and feeling love from God is a awesome feeling that cannot be duplicated or debuked. I loved what you wrote and I hope you keep writing.

      Micky Dee No one is worthy we are all sinners. If one Believes in the Lord Jesus with all their heart and repents of sin they will have a future in the Kingdom and Light for eternity. Romans 10:9-10.

      If one does not believe then the blood of Jesus does not cover their unbelief. It is a choice and God gave us free will to choose.

      If we made it into heaven based on works no one would enter because we are wretched sinners, me included. He is RISEN and by His Blood we are saved, but we must believe. It is simple yet many do not want to hear. I too was once lost then found. Thank You Lord. God Bless you too brother. Keep on In Christ, love ya.

      The entry into Heaven will be if you know Jesus Christ.

      Grace time is running short.

      John 3:16

      "Atheism, in a broad sense, is the rejection of belief in the existence of deities."

      Self-righteous Christians are no better than self-righteous Atheists.

      The entry to heaven will be by God's grace. God bless!

      Skye, you write "Christianity is not a religion but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ"

      This statement is very misleading and ambigious, to say the least. Religion certainly contains rules, rites & rituals, but religion is by no means summed up by these activities. What you (and others Christians) are in essence doing, is to set up a false definition of what religion is in order to de-emphasize it’s importance. The phrase sets up a logical fallacy known as “false dichotomy” or “black-and-white thinking” and implies that there are only two possible outcomes: It’s either a religion or a relationship. In reality, there are more than just two choices. In reality, there’s a third choice which is closer to the truth: It's religion and a relationship (albeit imaginary). Christianity continues to thrive because of religion. Christians continue thinking that they're developing personal relationships with God because of religion. With a little critical thinking it's obvious that a relationship with God requires the framework of religion to answer basic questions about the nature of relationships with God. It is a religion. Religion propagates the idea of a relationship with a personal God. Religion tells you what the relationship will be like. Religion reinforces the concept that God communicates directly to you. Religion encourages evangelism and indoctrination. A relationship without the framework of religion is meaningless. One begets the other.

      The American Heritage Dictionary defines religion as follows:-

      1a. Belief in and reverence for a supernatural power or powers regarded as creator and governor of the universe. b. A personal or institutionalized system grounded in such belief and worship.

      2. The life or condition of a person in a religious order.

      3. A set of beliefs, values, and practices based on the teachings of a spiritual leader.

      4. A cause, principle, or activity pursued with zeal or conscientious devotion.

      lee walls Thank you for coming to visit. i give all glory to God in all my writitng.. It is by the Spirit I am led and the truth of the scriptures. There is no argument here. TO my delight I thank the Father there was no persecution. It is the gift of discernment not my own doing that I write I praise God. I do hope you read the whole of the hub as I believe I made it clear Jehovah is on the throne not I. I am not. I am only made righteous by His Blood shed for me. I am a sinner forgiven and aspire to live a holy life. I make errors. Many Blessings. I am not real clear on your comment other then we both write for the Glory of Christ. He is King of Kings.

      When I explain something to someone and do it by using the scriptures, they throw something else at me and want to argue some more, therefore I know they're not being sincere. I use the scriptures so the person will know the words aren't mine when I'm trying to clarify something.

      I let people be when I know I'm wasting my time thus I don't let them invade my space because they're negative and aren't adding anything positive to my life.

      "That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, YOU alone are the Most High over all the earth."

      Psalms 83:18

      Skye, You are a Blessing you write from within and your Heart is full of the Love of Christ. Your Desires are set upon the Lord. He will continually bless you and keep you. When we are weak He is Strong He is the one that pulled us up out of the miry clay and put our feet on the Rock and directed our paths. Sometimes when we find ones that are lost and there seems like we can do nothing that is the truth. For we need the Lord Jesus to be our Strength. For He is the One that Speaks not just from us but from many many people. This is the Wonder of His Word. You just keep plugging away and stay Strong in Him. I was Glad to see how much this had touched your heart. May Peace beyond measure be upon you My Sister in Christ. Amen Amen and Amen

      Excellent hub indeed which presents great and timeless truths to live by. Truly only by the grace and mercy of God we became righteous, we can never rely on our own righteousness it is a filthy rag in His eyes. Thank you skye2day for bringing out all these things into the light here at Hubpages. Remain blessed always. Best regards.

      Skye2day, You share so transparently beautifully and sincerely! As you stated:” There is no possible way one can understand where we 'Christians' come from without the presence of the Holy Spirit in and on them…” Amen & Amen!! Understanding comes from God. Without His Holy Spirit the spiritual understanding of His will and way is closed…

      As long as the Lord has us on this side of heaven it is to grow and learn. As believers we realize that we are dependent on the Lord. He Loves us so much that He allowed Jesus to live the only sinless life and overcome sin in the flesh, die on the cross, was buried and was then resurrected from the dead! He arose with all power! He has redeemed us from the curse of sin! In Him we are new creations but not sinless…. This is why we NEED JESUS as our SAVIOR & LORD! AS we grow spiritually we should sin LESS… When we accept Him into our hearts His precious Holy Spirit comes to live within us to help us live better lives… We now strive to live to please the LORD! We in ourselves have no righteousness…. It is by His Grace we are declared righteous!

      As you so wonderfully stated as well:” The Lord God helps us to stand and it is by our Faith in Him that we know we are not alone. We know by Faith, He will never leave nor forsake us. We know where we go when we pass form this 'Ole' earth. …” Amen Thank You LORD!

      God Bless you! Thank You for sharing, In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

      Hey skye2day: I believe that people say they don't believe in God is not always true. They are bitter and angry about their lives in some way. I believe that when a person really don't believe in God, there is no need for him or her to talk about their "so-called" unbelief. They would just leave it alone. But they are bothered by it because of something that has happened to them. They need prayer. Great job!

      Raymond Tremain I will pray for your friends in England. No one that I know of was 'dancin' on the wings of an eagle when they asked Christ into their hearts. Although I have since met many that were so fortunate and Blessed to have immediate family in Christ growing up they did not have to go stumbling all over for years being miserable and lost. I believe your prayer will be answered. I am in agreement with you bro. In the name of Jesus Christ. Where two or more agree!! Merry Christmas Raymond. Be in touch, OK. Are you still coming to the states for a holiday? David and I think it would be great to meet you in person and share over a 'cup of tea' lol, Hugs Galore brother. In Him.

I am blessed in your presence and the Spirit on you. In Him always. I must get over for another Bible Study. I will do that soon tamarajo.Merry Christmas. What what you shared is powerful truth, 'atheism isn't because of the lack of evidence of God it is refusal to have a God which equals rebellion which equals the hostility toward those who believe' Wow.

When we repent and accept Jesus, we become "Adopted" into the family of God Almighty and God becomes our "Father" and we become brothers and sisters, "Joint Heirs" With Christ.

      Precious skye, Up and awesome 'sista'. This is a great hub that you have been guided to write. May God bless you abundantly for your obedience to Him in putting on paper what you were led to write. It is so clear and concise that those who read it will either take it on board and look into it a bit more or else with hardened hearts of stone they will follow their master into the pits of hell.

      These people need much prayer as they are also the reason that Jesus shed His pure blood on Calvary. He loves them the same as He loves us and was willing to lay down His life so that as many as receive Him, to them He gives the right to become sons of God.

      Even if only one soul is saved by your hub skye it will be well worth the time it took you to write it.

      Loved the song and the beautiful pics of the power of the Lord at work.

      May Gods blessings flow freely to you and your family my friend as you are a true witness to His goodness and love.

      Have a very Happy Christmas and a safe and prosperous New Year. I Love ya!

      WELL this is just what has been wanted for such a long time skye, well done.

      I have a friend who was a christian but because of something happening in his life he now disbelieves anything about God.

      and you will find that most athiests have come from much the same way.

      But the way they talk now you'd think they were like that all their life.

      The truth has been there in front of everybody, and it takes a good christian to put it down on paper, and not worried about what may be said about it, because they know that God will protect them from all hurts.

      I know as I have had these hurts come on me when I wrote thr truth, didn't Jesus say that the world hated Him and because we love him the world will hate us as well, and they will tell you so too.

      yes we are all sinners but thro the shedding of the Precious Blood of Jesus on the cross our sins are now forgiven, Praise God.

      and we have eternal life to be with Him for ever.

      God loves you

      a m werner You are so right many can not comprehend, the Holy Spirit teaches us and gives us understanding. There is only one perfect Jesus Christ. I know I am not perfect I am only made righteous by the Blood shed on the cross at Calvary. Jesus came so we could all be forgiven our sin. We are sinners we live in a fallen world. If one believes in Jesus the understanding will come. Jesus loves all of His creation and wants no one to perish because of sin. If we choose Jesus we are forgiven by his blood. It is by Faith we believe in Him. It is by grace we are saved from the sin of the world. It is not by my ways I am saved. I sin I am not perfect I am only made righteous thrugh the blood of Jesus. Just to think Jesus went to the Cross so we could be saved and live life in Heaven for eternity. It is a choice to believe or not. We all have free will.

      May God Bless you and yours this Christmans and always. May His favor shine on you and give you His peace. Thank You so much for coming over for a read. Sending a warm hug.

I started something totally different and my fingers did the moving. I am not all that and I pray I did not come off as 'preachin' it brother. I write in Love. I wrote and believe there is one that is to be led here. Not by me but by the Holy Spirit. If one can be touched with the Love of Jesus Praise God. Yes I will dust off the boots as I know I can only be a light for Christ. I am not perfect at it but God knows my heart. I just shared truth. I understand that without the Holy Spirit one can not understand where we 'Christians' come from that is probably why we come off self righteous in their eyes. I do not know for sure. Just maybe some seed will be planted where it needs to go. I was obedient to the Spirit I did this all for the Glory of God. I know you understand. I love ya unchained and I pray you and yours are Blessed in abundance. I pray your ministry is reaching many souls. Sending a warm hug. Your sis in Christ. Hugs Galore. Thank You for coming over for a read and sharing the good news in your comment.

      Lovely writing of His truth and pegs the non believer and their lack of understanding right in the tracks of the lost. I have been a part of both worlds and once Christ is the main part there is no turning back.

      If there is anything I have learned Christ loves each and everyone the same, till they find Him they are caught in the world of deception and quote a whole bunch of nothing defending something they know more about than what they believe.

      I have read the hub you are talking about and it is so sad such a hub would get that many agreeable comments while the Christian who wades in gets buried in the muck and the mire. This man is one who needs help, I pray him into the arms of the Father where he will some day find peace, it is not in the world he is in now.

      Primarily, arguing Christianity versus Atheism in the Forums is an exercise in futility for both sides. It is an attempt to pit science against faith. The tangible versus intangible. The former requires a worldly knowledge of the natural scientific position. A theory backed by testing and evaluating. The same procedure used to support positions in a laboratory. The latter?

      Faith. Belief in the unseen and intangible. Think about it. How can one debate or even attempt to argue these conflicting positions?

      One of the main issues with Atheists is the 'self-righteous' thing. Like it or not, they have a justified case here. Why? More than likely,they ran across a 'self-annointed' individual who, while claiming Christianity, ran them into the ground with judgment and ridicule. It is unfortunate, but there's a foundational belief system in there which says we as Christians think "We're all that."

      We ain't all that. We just forgiven. Ya wanna flip the script? Lose the preaching and just be the message. If you're that sure of your own position with God, why are you so intent on arguing the intangible with those who need to see the tangible?

      Skye, This is not directed at you. However, one must remember we are using a book we call the "Holy Bible" to substantiate our position and the Atheists claim the book itself was written by mankind. Using the same logic we do, men who had the same flaws we do. So, in the words of many, we are coming from a position of credibility if all of what we state is based upon a book written by those who today would be looked upon as common thieves, murderers, adulterers and such.

      Let us remember the above. If we are to be the message and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, it is not on us to argue. It is on us to plant the seed. Not accepted? Dust your spiritual self off and take it on down the road.

      I truly appreciate what you have done here. Be the message.

      You are so right: Christianity is not a religion but a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is so sad that too many people based their personal dogma on the doctrines of Jesus and established religions true Christians (followers of Christ) can not relate to. Patti, your love for God and Christ shines between and in, and above and below the lines of this hub. I could even feel your sadness. I know that sadness one experiences when somebody tries to take away your precious trust and faith in the Lord. Take care, dear sister. You are precious to many.

      I commend you on writing this, I think that you did an awesome job with full intellect and truth. Dont let anyone stop you. We are persecuted for His name's sake But GREAT is our reward in Heaven!! I know where I am going when I die, those that are lost fear death because they do not know but the truth is that they will find out someday and hopefully God works in their heart before it is too late. I too pray for the lost as it saddens me to know that people arent on the path to Heaven. I heard on the radio the other day that approximately 150,000 people die everyday not believing in Christ or God, that is a lot and whats even more sad is that even when Christ returns people will still reject Him and mock Him...I feel sorrow for them if anything. I continue to pray for the lost, hoping that God will work in their hearts. Amen and God Bless You Always!

      I think part of the problem is this:

      2 Corinthians 2:14-16 (New King James Version)

      14 Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 16 To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things?

      I also remember in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah when the evil men of the city decided to go after Lot's guests they said "the one looked like one who judges us."

      You make the excellent point that our righteousness is not of ourselves but of the only righteous one who died for us. Our righteousness is as filthy rags.

      But the righteousness of God produces conviction and it makes us uncomfortable and rightfully so. That we may turn to Him and be cleansed from all unrighteousness.

      God is evidenced in all that He has created. He said, so evidently that men will be without excuse. It is important to remember that atheism isn't because of the lack of evidence of God it is refusal to have a God which equals rebellion which equals the hostility toward those who believe.

      Your hub is thoughtful, loving, and truthful.

      My Dear Skye, surely the Holy Spirit led you to write this hub. It is written with such clarity and grace. You do not bash or condemn but freely share that you too have faults and shortcomings .. As we all do .. Thank God for providing an advocate for us and that we have forgiveness for our sins.

      There is NO room for self-righteousness as we are only made righteous through Christ .. "HE saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He washed away our sins, giving us a new birth and new life through the Holy Spirit." Titus 3:5 We have nothing of self to be righteous about .. It's all about what Jesus did for us .. all of us in the world .. God so loved the WORLD. The choice is ours to receive or reject the gift of life God provided through His only beloved Son. The words of the Bible can only be understood when read through eyes of the spirit .. God enabling us to SEE with the eyes of faith. Seek and you WILL find, God tells us.

      Your statement about why atheist's spend so much time downgrading Christians has always hit me as evidence that there is an enemy .. just as God has told us, and he roams about seeking whom he may devour .. otherwise why would people care or get so angry about what a person believes? Makes no sense unless you see the spiritual battle upon the earth for the souls of mankind.

      It is only by His grace we are saved .. It's all about His grace and His love for us in sending Jesus to pay the penalty for our sins. What kind of LOVE is this that a man would lay down His life for his friends?

      Rated Up and Awesome and shared on FB. May God use it for His honor and glory. Keep on writing Sista' You bless me to the core!

      Love and HUGS!

      skye2day, you hit upon the deepest misunderstanding of Christianity when you said, "We make errors and we make mistakes. We are sinners. We lie,cheat, and steal. I lie, cheat, steal. I am not perfect."

      That is an admonition many cannot comprehend. How can one believe in a philosophy that is unattainable in this life? How can you say "Be perfect" when you are not and cannot "Be perfect"?

      And as you say, "Christians are righteous but because Christ died for our sins and His Blood has us covered."

      We're not perfect but He was and is - and our faith and testimony in that is what is pleasing to Him, and our salvation. Peace

      One thing in addition to this: Jesus came teaching of the Kingdom of God and how to attain it....this is something that all miss as they look upon the works He did. He wants us to live our lives as He, in thankfulness, love, peace, joy and harmony. I had to come back because this is such an awesome hub.

      You see, we make reservations for the next life in this life. After this life guess what the reservations are already made.

      The masses of people who are alive in this day and time just do not get it. It is how we conduct ourselves in this life which determines where we will be placed as Our King comes to rule for all eternity. It is by faith we are to live and receive the blessings God will give us. You are well aware of this as this IS the life you live. Would that all who happen upon this work leave it in understanding and grow in the Love of God through His Son Jesus....Praise God for this writing skye!!

      God job, skye2day.

      I've been thinking about this exact same thing a lot lately. It seems that every person fits in one of two categories: "For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom" (1 Corinthians 1:22).

      I know before I came to Christ I was in the "seeking wisdom" category. But the truth is, God's wisdom is above ours and nobody (that I've met, I could be wrong) was saved as a result of an intellectual ascent. We can't appeal to human logic, and God has no need to prove Himself to man.

      And as far as signs go, Jesus made it clear that no one is saved by seeing signs.

      God isn't after our eyes or our minds, but our hearts.

      Keep up the good work!

      "We preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men." (1 Corinthians 1:23-25)

I have found that trying to comment oe talk to an atheist is very frustrating as they are very angry quite often and very condescending in their remarks so I wonder why? Why write that hub? Why do they keep it up on the forums? They can make their choice but why not keep it to themselves?
