Do you believe that to truely show you God is through your kindness and not your judgements?
Many Christians tend to tell you that you are going to hell if you dont repent.I am a christian but I believe that a real christian is to show God through the kindness we do for people,and not judge them for what they do.
its a mixture of both. Jesus made a whip and emptied the synagogue, he called the pharisees, vipers and often put his finger on their nose.
A good example is the woman caught in adultery, neither do i condemn you, go and sin no more.
Depends on the conversational overtones.
we are often drawn away from obedience by? the abuse of grace (Jude 4) and then claim 1 john 1:9. We abuse grace when, after sinning, we dwell on the compassion and mercy of god to the exclusion of His holiness and hatred of sin.
'God loves the sinner, but, hates the sin'.
I don't ever purport hell as it has an unscriptural connotation but the love of god is amazing and real and thats is mostly my testimony but if a sin is revealed, i rebuke it, sometimes mildly sometimes strongly, depends on how the spirit takes me.

It's about discernment not judgment.
Abahannin said in answer to this question that we should "show God through the kindness we do for people, and not judge them for what they do"
Ironcially, that's precisely what the Dalai Lama -- the patriarch of Buddhism -- said in several public sessions in the US several years ago.
Thus the question of denomination and righteousness begs the question of this question.
Yes, I really do believe that. Our judgements are about how we think, but how we act towards others is how we are.

I'm an atheist, yet I'm open-minded enough to acknowledge that God might exist. If you are a theist, are you open-minded enough to acknowledge that He might not?

Where does someone like me, with psychic ability, fit into Christianity? Do you think I am evil?I believe in God & Jesus & God's Holy Spirit. But I was born psychic. I see dead people and I talk to dead people. It is a God-given ability. I help people. Yet I cannot label myself as...

Do you believe that God can literally speak to you with a voice or in your mind to answer prayers?We have different beliefs about God. What do you feel about him talking to you if you think it is possible or not?

Why does it seem most Christians are immature.It seems most people professing to be Christian do not have a proper grounding in the scriptures. They drink the milk but do not seem to be able ( or maybe no desire?) to eat the real meat- understand the deeper things of God, in spite of the fact...

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...
