    Do many Christians believe that non christians hate them?

    I ask this because another question I asked got an answer implying that. Curious if other Christians felt the same way. Do these people not understand that we can disagree without hatred?

    The Bible says that the world hates the believers because of their faith in God.

    I'll stick to the first question. Going to the religion & philosophy forum that perception comes alive. My suggestion is do not go there unless you are prepared for modern gaming theory and you have your armor on. Enough said.

    This is a personal view I will share. The secret to your question is the word 'many.' The other secret is the word 'hate.' Here is how I see your question. Many hate them. Now, substitute Christian for Jew, Hindu, Buddhist, etc and even toss in race, creed, gender, etc.

    Again, this is a personal view. Christian is a label of sorts. Non-christians is significant to difference. Hate is a by product of the emotion fear. And, that is a hub or cause for dialogue.

    You are on the right path asking questions, very well done and very courageous too. I eagerly await your hub on this. Contact me through hubpages when you have written it, even though it may be next year or . . .

    i think the feeling is mutual...meaning that some christians hate non believers, mostly because they are mocked and ridiculed for their faith, and many non believers hate christians, i guess because they feel christians think they are somehow superior to everyone else. however, those who truly worship and obey the real GOD, hate no one, and they understand why non believers mock and ridicule and it does not change how they feel about them. you see, we are to love our neighbor...even those who hate us. it can be a hard thing to do but GOD gives us that ability. i think some non believers hate christians simply because they cannot understand how they can have faith in something that they (non believers) cannot see. if you say they do not hate, then please tell me if love mocks and ridicules, or does it try to understand and accept. they also hate because believers say only those who accept CHRIST will be saved. this is what they are taught and it means everyone else will go to hell and they do not believe this is fair.

    I don''t know that I would use the word hate. What I find is more ridicule.  Many nonbelievers address Christians with an attitude that we are weak minded and even stupid to believe.

    I have very rarely found this subject to be addressed with any civility on either side.  I like the old fashioned way of saying that we can agree to disagree rather than personal attacks on person or intellect--by either "side."

    I am a non-christian and this question was directed to Christians but In my opinion, non Christians do not hate Christians.  One thing is non Christians may feel like Christians try to promote Christianity or they don't accept other religions. I am Hindu and in Hinduism we are open to accept different beliefs and accept other religions widely. One thing is that most Christianity followers as I mentioned already tend to believe that they are only right and that is a belief they have which is okay but it shouldn't be forced onto others.I am not saying that everyone's like that but some people get very defensive. As a non-christian, I can say we do not hate Christians as there is no need to. Religion and beliefs is only something that separates us but other than that, we are all humans.

    Mam,

    I am a Hindu and I love Christianity because I believe that the religion is as liberal as Hinduism. Would haven't any regret if I was born into a Christian family (of course from the same parents:)).

    I believe Jesus & Krishna are two names of the same person, only they belonged to different eras. They were the saviors of mankind.

    No, I do not believe that most non-Christians hate Christians. In fact I have friends who are not Christians, and obviously they don't hate me, nor I them.

    I think some people hate Christianity because unfortunately they do not understand it and make the mistake of thinking Christianity is defined by Christians when it is not. It is defined by God and Christians are only human and imperfect followers of Christ.

    There have also been some terrible things done in the name of Christianity, but these are the result of groups that claim to be Christian that I believe are not.

    Also, some Christians are not very good at sharing their faith and being that they are only human, I guess it would only stand to reason that some people are not as good at communication as others, regardless of their spiritual leanings.

    I can only speak for myself. I do not feel that way. I personally think that many who say they are nonChristians are indifferent to whether I am a Christian or not.

    I certainly do not feel 'hated' by othes who do not share my religious beliefs. It is my belief that we are allowed to agree to disagree and still respect each other. To feel otherwise would diminish what being a Christian means to me.
