“To be, or not to be, that is the question,” said William Shakespeare, an English poet. To be a Christian or not to be a Christian it shouldn’t matter which side a person stands on. In today’s world Christians look down on others who don’t believe in their God or their rules. This act takes place in schools, the government, and in the general community. Non-believers are being brought into situations to listen to people force their religion onto them.

By definition intolerance means to have an unwillingness ability to accept the views, beliefs, or behaviors that differ from one’s own. Christians can’t be wrong, they live a life of their own views; they live with spiritual thought. To accept a gay person into their home or an ex-murder into their home is beyond acceptable.

Heaven is described to be a place of no sickness, no sin, no laws, deeper relationships, and finally being in the presence of God. To think why wouldn 't everyone want to go to a place that is so majestic physically and spiritually? Christians want to get everyone here and that’s why so many journey to help others to religion. To many God is the solution and answer to all
