  • In some places. But as a whole I feel that there is far too much judgement and not nearly enough unconditional love. I prefer to leave the judgement to God.

  • No I believe people are more absorbed with the idea of christianity than in showing what christianity is about through their actions.

  • No. Not at all (as a generalisation). But that itself accurately reflects scripture.

  • as a whole no. imo Christianity is closer to the kinda religious mess Jesus was always harping on Pharisees and Sadducees for...ya know the hypocritical, holier-than-thou, praying on the street corners so everyone can see how great you are, throw the first stone, kinda stuff.

  • Not the way its more popularly practiced or understood....

    I definitely don't think that most of what's considered "orthodoxy" does.

    I believe there are some who come closer than others....

  • No! I dont now its all about JESUS being a magic genie, and seperation of the church under different denominations. taking our eyes off of the christian things to do like helping widows,the poor ,disabledn individuals are people that just need someone to lean on. its all about what you can get if you serve GOD not about what you can give to help someone else. For example look at all the differrent ministries on how GOD can help you get rich if you just believe when the truth is GOD never intended for all of us to be rich. I. believe personally he does supply all of our needs, and what he has given someone else may not be what he wants to give you. So yes I believe we have strayed away from the ideals of JESUS.

  • No. IF it was then christians would be more giving and loving. Less judgemental.
