I believe in Jesus Christ, He died on the cross for our sins & all that jazz.
However most Christians don’t consider me one of them because I’m not a familiar face in church (among several reasons, alongside that I’m a total bitch, slut etc).
I’m not going to lie- I really dislike going to church. I’ve been to churches before and it really isn’t the boring services that turn me off… It’s the Christians. And sometimes when I look at them, I’m almost glad they don’t regard me as a Christian as well. If not it’ll just be downright insulting.
Disclaimer: Before countless people go on & take this personally… Not every single Christian is like that. I’m not pinpointing at anyone in this post. But hey, if the shoe fits… I’m not going to stop you from wearing it. *smirk*
1. They Have This ‘High & Mighty’ Perception Of Themselves
I don’t know why. But apparently being Christian makes you a lot more worthy than other people.
So yes, you believe in Jesus. So what? What does that mean to other people?
It’s like you taking a SGD100 note and paying for something in Europe- and expecting them to understand & accept the value. Guess what? They don’t! Because they have their own concepts of value.
It doesn’t make them any less human- they’re just different.
2. They’re Usually The Most Judgemental Lot
Thou shalt not judge! Oh please, Christians are usually the one to go around criticising the deeds of others.
Lets just take homosexuality for an example. I’m completely open to it- I don’t mind. Even though it is supposedly against the word of God, but I’m not going to try and stop them.
Everyone has their reasons. Everyone has been through their own experiences. You weren’t there all the time now, were you? There’s no way you could’ve been. So what gives you the right to tell people they’re ungodly for being attracted to someone of the same gender?
Heck, if my own child is gay- I’ll be totally cool with it. And if I have a husband who wants to disown the child- I’ll divorce the shallow bastard and take care of my child. Pure & simple. But I know so many Christians who go ballistic every time they know that someone is homo.
And homosexuality is just one of the many examples…
3. They Give Almost NO REGARD To Other Religions
They basically believe that other religions are false.
Yes, I believe that my God is the almighty and He is the creator of Heaven & Earth… Blah blah blah. And inside my heart, I do believe that He’s the only God.
However I don’t go around telling people their own gods are fake! It’s just downright disgusting. Why would you do that?
Again- people feel the same way you feel about your own god as well. So what do you want? You want all the gods & deities to come down, go into an arena and battle it out?
Sheesh man. Even if you don’t believe in other people’s beliefs, you jolly well at least respect that people have their own choices! If God gave us all freewill, who are you to take it away from them?
4. They Often Force Christianity On Others
Like force feeding someone. I’ve been to churches that are almost like those pushy sales people selling packages in beauty salons.
It can be quite scary. And downright sickening.
In a way, I always felt it was a like a violation of personal beliefs.
5. They Don’t Like Hanging Around Non-Christians Much, But Expect To Influence Non-Christians
I can’t even…
How does that work?!
First off, they usually put themselves above others. Then they build this barrier that differentiates them from non-Christians. But at the same time, they want to influence people to believe in their faith.
Ha! People don’t even have basic sincere friendships with you- leave alone really take into heart their beliefs.
6. They Basically Love Condemning People To Hell
Last I checked, the only one eligible to make that decision is God. So what are you trying to do now? Play God? Isn’t that against your beliefs itself?
The last time some hardcore Christian girl said that to me… I replied, “Damn, even after I’m dead I still have to see you?”
Took her a while to get it. I was laughing horribly by then.
Sometimes I just get really annoyed with those preachy Christians. To get people to have faith in something, you need to get to their heart. At the rate some Christians are going, they’re only going to get to fists.
I’m not saying to deny others Christianity- but don’t force it down on people! God will work in His own way, so stop screwing up with the plan.
When you interfere like that, people will have their hearts even more locked up against Christianity.
And to some point- I’m also against it. I just believe in God.
Sorry if this post seems kind of ranty… I saw this video on Facebook about this Christian lady and found her actions to be repulsive! It really stirred me up.
You can view the video here.
But after all this, I’m going to clear the air by saying that I did have the blessings to meet some awesome Christians who really helped in making me believe that not all Christians are complete assholes.
So, thanks, you guys. 🙂
