"Forcing" religion upon people
« on: November 30, 2007, 11:37:43 am »
In Christianity, it is said (probably in the Bible), that we are working until everyone comes to God. I know there are already a lot of Christians in this world, but what if people don't want to be a Christian (a.k.a. atheist)? Does the Bible say anything about people who don't wanna come to Christ? If they don't want to, what are we supposed to do? Are we supposed to say "I don't care if you don't wanna be a Christian, I'm gonna make it so you're a follower of Christ anyway!"? If somebody doesn't wanna come to Christ, I say don't force it on them. I'm a Christian, but I feel strongly about this. I have a co-worker who openly told me he's atheist, but he's still a nice guy. I'm not gonna say, "I know you're an atheist, Tim, but I'm gonna bring you to Christ anyway." He told me he wants no part of it, and I'm not broken up over that. Opinions, please.

Timmy: It's official, this guy sucks. I wish he was somewhere else!
*Poof!*
Timmy: Where'd you guys poof him to?
*Both fairies give evil smiles*
April Fool: I never asked for this!
Jorgen: Shut up, or I'll have Chuck Norris roundhouse kick you in the face again!

Your not supposed to force people to believe that way, last time I checked your not even supposed to ask them. Your suppose to teach them - spread the word, might be a better term.

I was a Christian most of my life... right now I identify as an Eclectic Pagan... but I know for a fact the bible says, right in Matthew, that if you preach the gospel, and they will not hear it, you're supposed to dust off your feet and LEAVE. You are NOT supposed to force religion on anyone. I believe in many different Gods. I don't force that on anyone. So why should Christianity, Islam, or Atheism be forced on me?

That's what I meant to say.

Again, another person sums up what I meant to say, only a 102x better.

The Catholic Church teaches that there is only one true religion and the rest are false.  The Catholic Church teaches that pagan religions (such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Voodooism, and whatever the heck Ty/Scooter is, of coursee, etc.), which worship various “gods,” actually worship demons, since all the gods of the heathen are the devils.

So hahahahahah Ty u worship demons

Lol. You want to know what I was taught as a kid? That the Catholic church is the great whore of revelations. I worship demons, so what? The things I believe in pre-date Christianity by more than 40,000 years... by more then 100,000 years. You Catholics are more Pagan than you think. Teehee -_-

The way I view it, pretty much everyone in America has heard the Gospel.  If they want it they will ask for it.  My only job is to treat everyone with kindness and equal respect, and to live my life properly.

So far the first two are going well.  I do need to live my life better though. :P

well then you don't follow the New testament..

Judaism is basically Christianity without the Jesus, Cross and new testament.

So it is basically the half of Christianity that christians don't follow. =|
