    You said the founders were wicked...that would mean Jesus and/or Paul and the other apostles

    Well just feel free to tell us how you really feel....o_O

    Who are you?....a newby with a bad attitude? Oh great...another one. :rolleyes:

    Excuse me, but you don't even know me or the Christianity I profess. I actually agree with you on that point....you are right, there aren't too many true Christians in the world.
    What passes for "Christianity" today, as practiced by Christendom, is a far cry from the original.
    However, the Bible's moral principles work just as well today as they always have....since when is the Golden Rule something to complain about? Its the ones who don't practice what Jesus preached that are the problem. Its called hypocrisy....God hates it. Sounds like you do too.

    Short sighted and uninformed opinions seldom tell the whole truth. Twisted half truths work so much better for some people....fuels their fire so effectively. There are good reasons for some of the things that you have mentioned, but the rest is hogwash. You don't want to understand, so I won't waste time explaining.

    As you wish.....funny, but your god sounds just like you...... :)

    I wish you all the best...

    We are as one I am God and God is me. so you are right!! and you don't have to wish me the best, I already have and live the best. and I am far from a newbie, I use to be a"christian" for 23 years going to church each Sunday and reading them scriptures ,but once I realized that there is a reason I never agreed with the bible and I found fault in a lot of Christianity,and finally I said enough is enough,I am miserably staying in this faith so I got out and started learning real spirituality and who God is for myself and learned to him and guide me to a better place in him, and he did just that,and I am so much happier and satisfied then I ever was in the faith "Disciples of Christ" and no I don't have a attitude at all, I guess cause someone doesn't agree with you and your version of Christianity they are seen as having an attitude. I speak my mind just as you speak yours.Very typical of your kind,to think the way you do, so I overlook it.

    No that wouldn't mean Jesus and or Paul I'm referring to "Christianity" as a way of religion here on earth,that human beings started!! Not in the bible!!

    Christianity is the religion that actually is based on the birth, life, death, resurrection and teaching of Jesus Christ,from the bible. Christianity began in the 1st century AD after Jesus died as a Jewish sect in Judea but quickly spread throughout the Roman empire,and that they made up there own Doctrine,and ways and rules that was very dark in the beginning.

    What do you hate about Christ (Christianity)?
    The constant persecution we have to endure for being righteous, when will it ever end?

    You know Jesus in the Apocrypha is quite a bit like Damien in the Omen.

    Well someone needs to find the men who wrote the story of all stories (the bible) and tell them.

    I don't believe I have to go via God's son Jesus to communicate with God, I go directly to him,and he reply's back to me all the time. That scripture among others don't make any sense to me at all.

    It is Christianity - not any other religion or ideology - that has transformed the world.

    Jesus claimed to be the Christ (see Matthew 16:15-17) - and indeed is so.

    Jesus said: "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will last for ever."

    It was Jesus, in fact, who "invented" the Christian religion.

    And since when is oral history less reliable than written history ?

    "Perfectly moral lives without Christianity" - you mean respectable, calculating, sensible, law-abiding lives.

    Since kindly, helpful people are even rarer outside Christianity than within it.

    You doubt this ? - ask any person who is poor or burdened, and they will confirm it.

    If God sent people to Hell, what you say would be correct.

    But He doesn't - people go to Hell (and stubbornly remain there) in order to be eternally evil.

    The fires of Hell come from inside the evil hearts of the local inhabitants.

    But only Christianity has transformed the world.

    E.g. modern Science and the concept of Progress are by-products of the Judaeo-Christian tradition and of that alone.

    Hasn't Christianity always opposed science? Critical thinking endangers religion.

    No, it is the combination of Greek, Roman and Judaeo-Christian tradition. Democracy e.g. is not Christian, it is Greek.

    All political and religious groups believe their way is the best.

    All parents instruct their children - and have a duty to do so.

    Christianity invented modern science - the Scientific Revolution of the 17th century was led by Christians and could have arisen only in a Christian civilisation.

    So which interpretation is correct ?

    That's why you need the Catholic Church to act as umpire and authority.

    Protestantism melts down into n-thousand groups.
