Here’s the slippery slope: as we (humans) put a stop to a religion, that will naturally spread to religionS…plural. Yeah, all of them. Will that happen? Can that happen?
Slowly but surely, Christianity is getting a bad name. It was once the accepted religion in America and respected around the world as a religion that teaches love. What happened? Did it change? Did something in Christianity change? Is there some alterations that took place?
The Bible is no different today than it was a hundred years ago. The truth is that the world has become a much smaller place than it was and the actions that are now sin (and always were) have become (for many of them) acceptable behavior. In our effort to ensure equal rights and proper treatment of people, we have allocated certain sins to be a person’s “lifestyle” and their choice, thereby removing the penalty. People will stand before God accounting for sins that society told them were not sins. Too bad it won’t make any difference at that point.
Any time someone feels different, the media or some politician jumps on the bandwagon to charge forth proclaiming that this is the new norm. Meanwhile, the Bible still claims these sins to be sins. And while the entire Christian belief is based on love regardless, these protagonists twist it into a book of hate. And, inversely, Islam to be a wonderful religion. But, as people come to see that much of it is about “killing or converting” people, they react with finality. “Get rid of religion altogether!” That’s the crux!
I am a Christian. I am not less or no more human than anyone else. My belief and my faith are all based in love. If you refuse my witness, I will not like or love you any less. I will not blow up your home or shoot you for doing something sinful. I will always love you no matter what you do or what you believe. I do not judge you, I love you. But I won’t say everything you do is okay. I won’t point it out because I do love you, but if you ask (you’d be surprised how many will) I won’t lie to you either. Heaven longs for you. It’s up to you whether you want to get on the bus.
Christianity is based entirely upon the Bible. And mostly what Jesus taught. He is the Christ (Messiah) and that’s where the word Christianity comes from. The last thing He told His disciples to do was to go into all the world and tell people about Him and get them saved. So, if you don’t understand why some Christian wants you to know about Jesus, well, now you do.
