  • I am a Christian and the minute a Christian makes a human mistake they are beat down. Christians are human and sin everyday and should NOT be put up on a pedestal. People have such high expectations of how a Christian should act...and then when they fall short....people are turned off....we are sinners....everyday.

  • For me, it's that I worship the devil or that I sacrifice goats or something...

  • I agree with the first answer. We are all sinners. Just because you are a christian that doesn't make you perfect. No-one will ever be perfect. God knows that why don't the non-believer and even some believers know that?

  • I don't get the no meat on fridays during Lent. No where in the Bible does it say you can't eat meat. And priest and nuns can't marry. Isn't that why God made MAN AND WOMAN?!

  • EVERY religion has thier misconceptions...
    I think that's because people decide to hear it from someone or something OTHER THAN THE SOURCE :) If we all went to the source for information then we'd never have a misconception about anyone! lol

    It was put to me like this one time.....
