    Yes and you are also right! The churches are full of many who become self righteous which makes it hard to find a good church to go to sometimes or it seems there are few in every church who seem to understandand and walk in truth.

    This is true and why I seek out a Pastor who teaches with humility and admits his own faults as this gives me a clue to what I can expect from the congregation.Not that the congregation would be perfect but that there will still be good fruit in the church from the Pastors teachings.

    You are very wise as how would a Pasotor who is perfect find any faults in himself to admit?

    The US federal and state governments, and public schools are secular. It's a violation of the US Constitution to make laws based on Christianity or any other religion.

    "It is easier to find people fit to govern
    themselves than people to govern others.
    Every man is the best, the most responsible,
    judge of his own advantage.

    christianity is the antonym of this idea...

    Tolerance and respect are not identical concepts regardless of what your definition states or where you got it.

    Not at all, I respect differing opinions of al stripes.
    I do not respect magical thinking, which is what most religion is based upon.
    I haven`t even uttered my definition of "secular" in this thread.

    Again, I`m not speaking of "Christians" I`m speaking of "Christianity".

    You are projecting your own meaning and not my intended meaning onto my words.
    This is something that most Christians "generally" do when they fail to analyze a statement before they become offended by it.

    You have to know them by the fruit.
    22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control.

    Why are Christians so fixated on sin and forgiveness? It seems that almost any post from a Christian is along the lines of "I am not perfect, but God forgives me"; "I'm a sinner too, but...". That' the primary reason I left Christianity behind... sin, sin, sin, sin, sin.

    Only when somone is honest with their own faults can they do something about them and make changes.You can't just be positive witout letting go of the negative. If you throw good apples on top of a bunch of bad ones then eventually all of them will rot.Face all that is in yourself that is wrong and let it go and then the positive comes automatically.

    Not sure which post you are addressing .I am not the authority of how God deals with an individuals heart.
