How does a believer live?

OUTSIDE of their worship times (IE: church services)....how do you think anyone who does have a belief in a god live their lives?
How do you think this differs from that of an atheist?

  • Well you already knwo where I stand. LOL Generally speaking we all live the same aside from whatever personal or religious restrictions we impose on ourselves. And jsut becasue we impose certain restrictions on ourselves for specific reasons does not mean that someone else cannot also impose similar restrictions on themself for different reasons. In other words, there is no difference aside from the God factor.(Church prayer, etc).

  • Christians obviously don't all live the same. The ones who take the faith seriously live as people who are loving, helpful, kind, etc. The ones who don't take their faith so seriously, generally don't take anything else so seriously. Again...you can't ask how Christians live, since all Christians live differently.

  • I am a "Believer" and I try to live according to the Word. The Bible tells us to be Christ-like. I am not perfect, nor is anyone else, but I am also not just a Christian on Sundays. I strive each day to be more and more like Christ, and live the way He would want me to be living.

    I appreciate that, but that doesn't answer my question. What exactly do you do on a daily basis that is different from that of a "non" believer?
