  • Do you mean "values" as opposed to "beliefs?"

    As in, holding Jesus to be the Son of God is a belief, and disagreeing with premarital sex is a value?

  • Everything is more a belief than a value to be... I mean I feel as a Christian I value charity and kindness to others but I also know non Christians who live that everyday!! But I believe in God, Jesus, Heaven where God reigns, and those beliefs are limited to Christians

  • I can determine whether a value is in accordance with Scripture or not. But since Christians are human, they don't always display Biblical values. And sometimes non Christians do have a set of values that line up with Scripture. It's more about the beliefs/basis behind the values where the difference should lie.

  • Christianity holds no monopoly on any values

  • What does it matter where the values basis is from as long as its a honorable value?
    And I'm not talking about beliefs I'm talking about values like being kind, charitable, respectful, dignified etc.

  • Honestly, I think Christian values are human values, and similar to values in many other religions. For me, the Creator is the source I have found of kindness, generosity, etc, and the guide I live by to cultivate those values in myself. But there are many other ways, some based on religion and some not, to practice the virtues that make us all human.

  • I don't think those values are exclusive to any group.

  • Unless someone is an expert on all the religions, (meaning they have studied all of them) they couldn't possibly answer that question.
