hey hey hey, Christians, what do you say?

Are you able to be half and half? Can you be part Christian and part something else?

Remember the case of the baby that is being raised Catholic and Jewish? The mom took the father to court and the father won. The child can be taken to a Catholic Church by the father and the mother can raise her child Jewish.

Can you be Christian and______

  • Yes you can. However the child may grow up and decide neither. They are teaching the child her heritage.

  • If you wonna go to heaven, you have to choose Christianity.
    And no matter what your upbringing was, (as long as you do it before you die) you can always change from whatever faith you have to Christianity.

  • I don't see anything wrong with being part of as many religions as you want to be.

  • Yes you can be raised within two religions, it can be difficult, but people do it all the time. The child will have to decide for himself when he's an adult, just like everyone else.

  • If you wonna go to heaven, you have to choose Christianity. Prove it.


    Of course you can be half and half. Most religions can blend together really well. Eventually though the child will choose his/her own path. It may be one or the other or something completely different.

  • Both parents are exposing their kids to their religion but it does not make the child half and half. It makes the child confused. Ultimately, they will grow up and make up their mind as to what beliefs they can own.

  • I personally believe the ONLY way to heaven is to repent of your sins and ask Jesus into your heart and life and be SAVED:)
