If God hates no one, why do *some* Christians?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I'm a Christian myself and I just don't understand...

If a person is Gay, A different race and/or religion, an unwed mother...What does that matter to (general) you? Isn't God the only one who is supposed to judge?


ETA:

Furthermore, if Christians believe that God created everyone and everything did "we" ever stop to think that maybe he created the differences in all of us to teach us more understanding and acceptance?

Because there are many people that practice the Christian religion - There are very few that practice Christianity.

Please do not put me in the same category as the extremist, hateful, ignorant folks who do the work of the devil by hiding behind the bible.

Matthew 18, Galatians 6 are just a couple places in the Bible where we are told to point out other's sins in the hopes of bringing them back to God.

I'm sure you will get a lot of "we hate the sin, not the sinner" types of replies from most Christians.  The fact is, if their child is gay they turn their back on their child.  They shame their child and condemn them to hell.  I refuse to be a part of anything that would expect me to turn my back on my child simply because of who they love.  It's sick.

How I put it... God and Jesus were perfect and man was to be created in their image. But, we were given free will therefore we act as individuals and as we see fit. It's not the religion it's the person.

Yes, Jesus hung out with them, but he also taught them.  We do no one justice when we allow sinful things to go on in our midst.


Quoting alexsmomma06:

Yes, but we are human and to be human is to judge/hate/and fear difference's. Not saying that it is right, just that it's a fact of being human. I have never understood it though. Jesus himself ate and kept company with the prostitutes, the gamblers, the alcoholics, the thieves, etc. and yet 'we' feel as though we can not talk or be associated with them because they will taint our own faith. I believe that those are the people we need to reach out to the most, not condemn but help.

Just because someone calls themself a Christian, that doesn't mean they really follow what Christ taught. I think hardly any really do.
