SHE said that. Not me. SHE's the one that was the devout Christian for many years, and decided not to be anymore.

But I have to disagree. It IS possible to stop believing in something you once held true to your heart. Look at Santa Claus. Look at the Easter Bunny. Those are things kids held true to their hearts.....and stopped believing in them as they got older.

YOU might feel that your "Jesus" is in your heart, and that's fine. When other people wake up and realise that Christianity is not for them, then they can STOP being a Christian. SOme Christians quit, to become something completely different altogether. If you don't believe in the Bible or the "word of Jesus Christ", then the requirement you mentioned, no longer applies in their life.

Quoting DropZoneMom:

OH -- and one more thing:  since the only requirement of being 'Christian' is truly (in your heart) accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord & Savior -- it isn't possible to "quit" being a Christian.   It's not possible to just stop believing in something you've held true in your heart, just because others are completely ignorant asshats.   :)

Quoting DropZoneMom:

Flawed thinking.  You don't have to "quit being a Christian" to refuse being anti-gay.   Here's the thing:  the ONLY places in the Bible that condemn homosexuality are in the Old Testament (and there are only 2 verses).   Modern Christians don't follow the Old Testament -- or we wouldn't be eating pork, and women would still be considered property.  

So all these homophobic bigots quoting Leviticus are full of S***.   They don't get to pick and choose which verses are valid to them.

BTW -- I am an ordained minister.   A female, feminist, Democrat, liberal, pro-choice, pro-Gay Marriage, believer in evolution, Harley riding Christian minister.

Religion has no place when it comes to dictating law for an entire nation that is supposed to encompass and embrace different races and beliefs.

so?

"Eight days after publication of the Guardian article, Joseph Bruce tweeted "I think [it's] crazy how some press say we're a Christian band and act like we're all religious [...] I'm proud that we believe in God but I haven't been to church since I was like 10. I don't even know if [Utsler has] ever been to church!"[128][129][130] Christianity Today writer Mark Moring also challenged Ronson's characterization, writing that "The guys in ICP haven't used the word 'Christian' or 'evangelical' [...] so let's not call them anything that they're not claiming for themselves."[131]" - Wikipedia.

I highly doubt they would be welcome to church, on SUnday, dressed the way they do.

Quoting Anonymous:

Didnt you know ICP is christian?! !?! !?! They are from around here, so I should know ;)

Quoting ICPclwnLOV:

I love this AND I agree! I'm stealing this pic when I get on the computer.

Hard to do unless I have an example. It's important to take cultural context and the context of the scripture into consideration. Not to mention, the Holy Spirit. That's why there are so many denominations and no one has the exact same beliefs. It's not as black and white as you may think :)

Quoting SDarvasi:

explain the different ways...

Quoting Angeldolphine:

What do you mean by new revised one?

There are different ways to interpret the Bible...

Quoting SDarvasi:

Well..not according to your Bible. Or are you reading the new revised one?

How does the morals of religion change? How can mankind decide what is acceptable if it is "God" who rules all? 

Quoting Angeldolphine:

Yeah...that's weird, I am a Christian who is pro gay rights, a feminist, for "unnatural" birth control, a democrat, very scientific, (I believe in MICROevelution too), and I am pro-choice (which doesn't mean I am for abortions, but for the mother's right to choose) The only one I am unsure about is secular humanist. You can be these things and be a christian lol.

Quoting kryptomom:

Wow.

A little confused about Christian beliefs.

I never said it was black and white.

It's extremely confusing and all over the map and some people on this side say they're right, and some people on this side think the old testament is right...and some people over think...well, whatever. you get what I'm saying. SO many demoniations and beliefs. None of them make sense to me. Everyone claims different things...who do you believe? How do you know what YOU believe is the right thing? Where's the proof that ANY of it is right?

That's whay I say fuck it. I live my life for me, not a book, not a religion, not some invisible person in the sky...ME. And other people in my life. I refuse to be anything but, me. I will not conform. I will not follow. And if I burn because of it? oh well. I lived a good life while it lasted.
