  • The fact they denied u because of the atheist on ur friends list is sad.... how do they know how u might be able to reach this person. they were wrong. they really need to open up there bible and see who Jesus hung out with... of course the 12 disciples but also sinners. We are to be like Christ.

  • i still tell that i think i am right and they re wrong when we are talking about it , or the christain who is actting hollier than thow

    There is little difference between these two! Telling someone you're right and they're wrong IS acting holier than thou!

  • Now saying you disagree with their beliefs because your beliefs teach you something different is not acting holier than thou.

  • Jesus loved everyone. I don't think anyone can tell what a person's heart looks like by looking at their friends. The only one that knows your heart is the Lord. How can they know if you're Christian or not? Doesn't make sense. It sounds like a "click" type of thing and I wouldn't want ot be a part of it in that case.

    Also, try not to get caught up in comparing yourself to others...that's a mistake lots of people make...I still do it but I try to catch myself.

  • i am not comparing myself as trying to understand their thinking and kristi i am not educated like you when i say i am right and you are wrong it is the same as saying i disagree to me cause i know we dont agree but that is fine i dont hate you and i dont think i am better than you , it is just like in my marriege there alot of times i am right and alot that my husband is , when i am right i certainly dont think i am better than him

  • no... i'd say that's very un-Christian. if they are truly concerned about your association with an atheist, why wouldn't they help you?

    what's with all the worrying about who's right and wrong and Christian or not? you can only control your own self, so make sure you are acting according to your beliefs and think about your motivation.

    I think you are getting crap about saying you let others be themselves and you are yourself and stick to your beliefs... it's just the way it was worded.

  • WOW! If they are calling themselves Christians then who are they to judge who can love God and who can't. I think it's great that you are friends with who you are. I'm the same way as you girl. I have all sorts of friend and we all base our opinion as an opinion as friends and learn from one another. Wat to go with the way you feel!

  • When we use the internet to communicate we must be careful of the words we choose when conveying a message so we don't offend others because we cannot convey the tone of our voices. We have to be more careful and choose our words wisely so that our message is clear and not as easily confused. So because our tone cannot be represented a simple statement such as "I'm right, can come off as condescending, claiming superiority, judgmental, etc.
