Well, lets face some facts up front. There are no Christians alive today who are truly Christ-Like. Nope, Christianity is nothing more than a hypocrisy that has entrenched itself so deep into the fabric of the people in this world those who follow it are completely blind. There is no sect of Christianity in existence that completely agrees upon anything in regards to the bible. There are over 70+ different bibles, all have numerous versions/updates due to church officials, theologians, clergy, etc. who are in constant non-stop debate over many aspects of what is contained in the bible. Most argue over the semantics of a meaning of a word, for which has long since lost its true meaning. For the language used in the bronze and iron age has either become a lost language or has vastly changed over the course of centuries. You all live in sin everyday, flor you do no follow your lord God's commands or tenants as was laid out in the bible. It is a level of hypocrisy that is amazingly horrible. Then you all find yourself judging everyone else saying how bad they are, and how they have no morals etc, etc. Well, only 0.07% of those in prison are those who have said they are Atheist, while approximately 70%+ are Christian. (these are statistics of those entering not leaving) besides, I know first hand from working in a facility, that a lot of them fall into that religious line for it looks good for them when parole boards review their inmate statuses. But hey. Now, you may get very upset at what I have said, but that is okay. Cognitive Dissonance is a very real thing and affects a large number of groups, especially those who have lived a lifetime being made to believe in something so strongly. It is hard to open ones eyes to the reality of things. though I do believe in the fact that everyone has a given right to believe in what ever it is that they want to believe in. Just don't force your ancient and outdated morality on me or my family, and stand in judgment against me in a militant and aggressive manner because I deny in what you believe. I am a rather peaceful individual whom I have some really lively debates with people I have known for years in my life, and a few of those are members of the clergy, and I can tell you that there is a good percentage of you reading this right now, will claim to have read the bible, and can even recite various (awesome verses) from it too, but, for most you could not say for any certainty the context that those verses were written. (Not all of you, but most. I have found that the more aggressive one is in showing their outrage in defense of it are the ones who are the most blinded, and know actually very little about the inner most meanings of what they are reading. All in all though, if you are Christian, that is awesome and kudos to you,
Just remember what is going on in the world today in a country where our soldiers are still fighting. Against a religious group that is exacting justice that their bible tells them to do. Christians in their history have done the very same thing to others as well. Religion, has never been known to be one of peace. It is only peaceful when all parties are all in the same line as one another. If they aren't, all things go down the crapper quickly. History writes about it over and over and over again. It is time to stop the cycle. It is time for people to start realizing that humanity is the most important thing, and one that is vastly overlooked everywhere in the world today. Religion does not equate to people who are good, and wholesome with upstanding morals, principles and convictions.
