Do you ever feel like there's more to life than being Christian?

    It just seems like most Christians are self-absorbed and lost in their incessant need to irritate everyone else. It's disappointing.

    True Christians who walk the walk can't be self-absorbed as their whole life is dedicated to Jesus and helping others. Only Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. Without him you are on a path of self-destruction and aren't living because the holy spirit doesn't reside in you.

    If someone is TRULY Christian, their life should be in unending service to humanity, not to Jesus. They should honor Jesus by living as he did, in selfless pursuit of the betterment of mankind. Let me see some Christians doing that and I will join their ranks.

    Nearly every Christian organization and their many volunteers are in service to humanity. Of course many individuals within the Church can be selfish at times but they're all generally good people. Just because there's a few self-righteous bad apples in the basket doesn't mean Christians are all that way. Most of us know the war is not against the flesh but it is a spiritual battle of good vs evil, and Satan is the enemy.

    I constantly hear LGBT people talk bad about Christianity mainly due to their own negative experiences. Yet Christian organizations have done more to help lgbt people than lgbt organizations have ever done.

    While lgbt organizations are out preparing for their yearly pride festivals, passing out free condoms and teaching LGBT youth about FREE SEX for all or whatever agenda they have to corrupt the youth..Christian organizations and their many hospitals are caring for the numerous LGBT ppl who've contracted STDS and are dying of hiv/aids on their deathbeds after the LGBT community has spit them out.

    When you put things into perspective Christians have done much more good in the world than any other religious group or LGBT organizations.

    Satan? Is he the good one or the bad one? And was he in the sequel?

    By that I meant that simply proselytizing about Jesus, or glorifying his existence, is a far cry from the kind of outreach he wanted-- the kind indicated in that passage.

    Yup, no doubt about it. You ARE just a troll... You're letting your guard down and making the conversation about "us" and "them" and you clearly side with the "Christians." As much as I'd love to argue the finer points of religious history and Christian doctrine and values with you, I know you won't be convinced. You're probably one of those self-hating closet cases trying to save his soul by converting other lost souls and condemning those who won't turn away from their awful sins. Been there, done that. I hope that if that's true that you eventually find a way to love yourself for who you are and accept that God also loves you, be you gay, straight, bi, transgendered, or messed up beyond all reason. When that happens, come on back and you'll be welcome.

    Aussie: I think it's rather a false comparison to say that because Christian groups have done work for people en masse they've done the collateral good work of helping gays too.

    I won't vouch for gay groups, but saying that all they do is hand out condoms and host parades is a mischaracterization of what they do entirely, and it is just simply not accurate. Of course I don't reject the good works of Christian groups, but that doesn't mean that it's okay for some of them to say or act in ways that are harmful to the spirit and dignity of gay people. It is also not okay for others not to denounce those acts.

    There are dozens of Christian organizations on the Southern Poverty Law Center's listing of hate groups, and no LGBT organizations.

    "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God."

    "The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son, that all may honor the Son, just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life."

    I do agree that God loves us, but that won't prevent him from tossing unrepentant non-believers into hell.

    Is a gay man truly repentant if he is still having sexual relationships with other men? The bible makes it clear that same-sex sex is an abomination. That's what I'm dealing with right now. I try to justify being a homo but I can't. I have the option to not act on my sexual feels for guys, and that's what I've been doing all my life. To me pleasing God is more important than giving into my lust-filled desires. I don't even know why I joined this forum since all of you seem fine with being gay. I don't think I ever will be.

    Don't engage Aussiefuck in conversation. You can't talk to people like that. My point in creating this thread was to bait Aussieclit into demonstrating that so many Christians are indeed irritating beyond all measure. And like the Christian fish on the back bumper of his Buick Skylark, he bit. And he did his job for me. Thanks Aussiepuss.

    It's kinda funny... I used to be like him... Assuming he's gay at all and not just a westboro baptist type. I used to think that my salvation depended on fighting my "same sex attractions." I tried to pray the gay away. I got online and tried to convince other homos they were wrong to try to validate myself. All I can say is that it was the most depressing and dark time of my life.

    Christian folks like to talk about the holy spirit and how it speaks to you and guides you. I was taught that the holy spirit would talk to you through feelings. I can tell you that once I decided to accept myself as I am, a homosexual, I immediately felt better. I was happier. A weight was lifted off of my chest. I felt I had made the right choice. If there is a God and that is how he speaks to us, then I got my answer that day. God loves me, and so do I.

    This guy is just quoting instead of thinking for himself, brainwashed I think, I have got nothing against religion but preaching to other people is being judgmental which is supposed to go against what being a christian is all about. He also blocked me because he said he was farming in Australia, I know about farming and I expect he knew I was going to ask him questions about it so blocked me before I caught him out because I don't think he is who he says he is and that includes the photo.
    Anyhow, you don't have to be a christian to help people, and knowing the truth has nothing to do with religion either.
    If he has nothing to hide then he wouldn't have blocked me.

    I am not religious but I don't think there is more to life than being a religious person because religion is a way of life itself. You cannot leave religion at the door and come back to it.

    I agree with the general sentiment of the topic of this thread and the one it is mocking: you don't have to define yourself solely by one aspect of your life. You can be Christian or otherwise religious or spiritual and it doesn't have to come up in every conversation you have. If you have to go around telling people what a great Christian you are, are you really being that good of a Christian?

    It's the same with being gay. The difference is that this is a website FOR gay people. The forum category is "All Things Gay." If it was a forum called "All Things Christian," then I'd expect a lot of Jesus talk. But I wouldn't necessarily assume that everyone on there never thought about anything else and that they had nothing else in their lives, which seemed to be the implication of Pussie4Love's original post.
