  • I don't understand what you mean? As in, is it anyone else's business? I don't think so.

    I don't think anyone's religion or lack of it is anyone else's business, unless that person is in a religious vocation or other form of clergy.

  • I think some people believe its their duty to show others the way, personally I think others shouldn't preach to me unless i ask. If you don't know someones past experiences with religion then leave them alone. I have had many people try to "save me" I don't need to be saved I was exposed to many religions as a child and made my choice as an adult. I made an educated choice and having someone badger me with arguments about why their preferred religion is best is not going to win me over.

  • Let me ask you this, if you had the cure for cancer and only you knew it wouldn't you be spreading that news to everyone you knew that had cancer?

    To a born again Christian, sin is a fatal disease on a persons soul. We believe that the wage or pay off for sin is death, eternal spiritual separation from God, in a literal place called hell. So most of us really do care about others and want to save their spiritual lives. Do some get combative with it yes, but most, really just want you to know the truth.

  • cancer is very different from a persons PERSONAL beliefs. I consider stupidity a disease but i dont go around forcing my views about common sense on people.

  • lol I was going to ask the same thing outstanding love, all one has to do is read the questions you post to know that you are not a chiristian. It pays for people to get to know who they are debating with.

    I actually started giggling at the idea of you running around spreading the word of the lord on cafe mom lol
