"CHRISTIANITY HAS AN IMAGE PROBLEM
Christians are supposed to represent Christ to the world. But according to the latest report card, something has gone terribly wrong. Using descriptions like “hypocritical,” “insensitive,” and “judgmental,” young Americans share an impression of Christians that’s nothing short of . . . unChristian.
Groundbreaking research into the perceptions of sixteen- to twenty-nine-year-olds reveals that Christians have taken several giant steps backward in one of their most important assignments. The surprising details of the study, commissioned by Fermi Project and conducted by The Barna Group, are presented with uncompromising honesty in unChristian . . ."
Christians and Non Christians,
what are your thoughts on this?

I think that Non Christians are to critical and expect us to be perfect. I'm not saying there aren't bad ones, but come on. Don't group us all together.

So that being said, do you think that the judgments go both ways then? SOME Christians are overly judgmental of non-Christians and some non-Christians are overly judgmental of Christians?
Absolutely, I get judged for being Christian from non-Christians and I get judged by Christians for not being Christian enough

I don't expect anyone to be perfect. I do expect them to be polite and civil.
I agree with you and I'm not saying that you are wrong, but why are we held to such high standards? Why is it so hard for some to grasp not all people who say they are Christians...are?
