Christians have flaws too. But as christians we have to love each other and forgive each other. Be a light in this world!  and if that isn't working for you (as it so often doesn't for me) just tell yourself it will make you stronger! :)

yes, I just got really frustrated trying to explain to someone how there are many different variations of Christianity and that Christians are not the only ones that believe in God, that many other religions do as well and that God and Jesus did not literally write the bible and that cannot see any other way to be acceptable, so yeah just was frustrated when initially writing the post

Quoting LynnGrey:

I totally get it! Some people are too literal. "God breathed" doesn't mean it was written by God himself.  Each chapter says the author and its quite a few different people.  Just like Jesus wasn't really a door. lol stupid I know I always say that though.

I hate to even use the words bible thumpers but when someone starts throwing scriptures and stating it only means one thing and cannot have another message or that Christianity as they see it is the only "correct" religion in the world,  I just to facepalm. Thanks for letting me vent, lol!
