    Default Christianity as a religion....

    What are your opinions of christianity as a religion?
    I am asking this because I used to be a christian.

    I think christianity is very intolerant of other religions and the occult. I also find that the god of christianity has very low moral values. He murders children, women and babies and tortures people who don't believe in him for eternity.

    My big issues with it are a couple things.
    1) people who see the bible as the literal truth
    2) blind authority worship, of god, of the church etc.

    And then there are the other issues I have with it, namely the tediousness of the rituals. You could go to church every week and just feel more and more bored every time you go. ... of course that would probably be true of a lot of religious and spiritual practices.

    I respect the idea of Christ but he has nothing to do with today's Christianity.

    Yes Christ would not agree with what is being done in his name nowadays. Sickeningly pathetic and it will be the death of us if things do not change immediately.

    But really though, you can state the same criticisms against ANY organized religion out there, and you must remember that you can't single out one bad apple when the majority of the whole barrell is rotten.

    I agree with this.

    change indeed, there seems to be a stagnation in most religions. Do as thy will, but a lot of people seem to be unhappy about the state of things. Where as I can respect most religions, Christianity is not one of those.

    perhaps my distaste is from TV, or that I'm American, or the intolerance I see from the majority of Christians, perhaps its because there seem to be people who are only christian, for politics, and all other reasons other than truth.

    I myself may be ignorant, and indeed I am, learning is a tool for the wise, but from what I think I know of Christianity it is only a thing to learn from...much like "learn from the past, prepare for the future"

    Christianity as a religion is about creating and improving a relationship with God.
    Too bad that people used it however they wanted.
    It is just you and God, no trying to forcefully convert people or killing people of different religions.Those people are insane.There is a passage that says something among the lines of:if your eye or hand becames the tool of sin cut it off and cast it away as it is better to live whitout that apendice than burning in hell whole.People that turn christianity into a way of fulfilling their unlegitimate needs would do just that, instead of thinking that maybe the author used a figure of speech.

    I'm not a Christian, although, I was raised as one. I think Christianity is a very mixed religion; on one side of the coin you have the very intolerant ones who will not hear an ill word spoken about their beliefs, regardless if it's true. On the other side you have the Christians who are actually very understanding about other religions and realize that they may not be right about everything under the sun & moon. And of course you have many types in between. In my opinion, Christianity, no matter what you think of it, you have to agree it has done evil in the name of 'God' but it's done much good for the world. It's given people hope, and help civilize many parts of the the world, albeit to expand their influence, but it's still respectable. I also think that their namesake- Jesus Christ is one of the wisest and most powerful spiritual teachers.
    People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering. - st. Augustine

    so many faces, oh so many.

    The Vatican is a relic of the past its power upon the soul has been reveled as false, and in such has been a light that never was(no relevance to the christian religion). If I wanted politics I would go to government now days.

    Not something to be taken lightly, but I will say the Chine's have an interesting solution that is not war.

    Judge thee not in light of my crown. Individualism is a nuance the past knew not. truth define it if you will, but in the end it will define you, and you, and you....

    thank god
