Does your faith make you feel superior...

I'm watching a show on Bio right now and they're interviewing a woman about some Paranormal experiences she's had in her home and how they have affected her family. At one point she said "We're a good strong Christian family, we shouldn't have to go through this, we're better than this." Which struck me as odd. Now, I'm not Christian, but I certainly don't believe that my beliefs make me better than others or that because of my beliefs I would have different experiences than others... We're all human, no matter what we believe, no one, in my opinion, is better than anyone else.

So I'm asking that you all be honest here (feel free to go anon) - But do you feel like you're better or superior to those who don't have your faith?

  • No. I just feel secure in my faith. What others believe has no bearing on how I feel.

  • "But do you feel like you're better or superior to those who don't have your faith?"
    No I don't. For that matter, I don't believe any faith is better than or superior to another faith.

  • not at all. but then i dont think thats what the lady meant. i think she was confused as to why God would let them go thru the paranormal stuff even tho they are "a good strong Christian family". its possible she thinks this is a test from God or an affront by Satan to change their beliefs.
