Intolerance In Christianity

Superior Essays
“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. Christians go too far with religion by forcing their beliefs onto others, using their religion as a weapon, and creating a world of intolerance. Christians live in a world of what religion is, not what their God makes it out to be. Christians force rules, laws, and even ideas of religion upon …show more content…
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. Whether Christian’s believe in helping others or helping them thrive; they don’t help the ones who need it most. These people who claim to be true followers of Christ might actually be wrong, but instead of accepting this, they build a wall of intolerance. “Instead of accepting another follower in the path to discovering the truth and service to God, these people push the individual way because he/she might be affecting their own ways of believing. This individual is altered to an outsider,” (Spong). This wall of intolerance rejects the very people, Christians are supposed to help. For instance the following: gays, transgenders, sinners, divorced couples, the rich and poor, non-believers, murders, etc. “Jesus loves the porn addict, in the midst of their sin. He loves the racist, in the midst of his sin. He loves the murderer, and the gossip, and the homosexual, and the liar. He loves all of us, right now—broken, sinful, lost, found,” (Jesus Loves Sinners). If this is true then Christians have no authority to judge these people and change them, God will change them. These individuals don’t need religion from …show more content…
To Christians getting to heaven is by doing good deeds, by helping others, and loving God, among other conditions. “The best is yet to be. Heaven is yet to be, along with eternal life,” (Anderson). Heaven is extremely important and all that Christians want to achieve. This God will come back and destroy the enemy and all sin along with it. So to Christians helping others to their religion and guiding them to heaven is a way of life. 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

    Lewis explains to us readers how Christianity explains and transforms human morality. "Every moral rule is there to prevent a breakdown, or strain, or a friction, in the running machine" (page 69). This quote really sets forth every thing we will and should know about morality. As Christians we strive to be as most like God and Jesus as we can be, in other words we strive to be perfect. But, none of us will ever be perfect and if it was possible for us to be perfect then there would be no purpose of us living.…

    Kierkegaard indeed continues to reinforce the idea that the untruth is the way how the individual is lost in the crowd through the last reason of how the Christendom removes authenticity from Christianity. Basically, the Christendom is removing the truth from an individual from practicing Christianity because they are claiming the untruth. This restricts the individual from trying to obtain the truth individually. For example, the Christendom would tell individuals all they need to do in order to be a true Christian is to go to church, instead of sincerely praying alone at home and practicing good deeds. Kierkegaard is arguing his reason why he believes this by writing, "If the other hand there were an assemblage of thousands or more and the…

    The most confusing thing about Christianity is that one is to have faith in someone that cannot be seen. Most people cannot wrap their mind around trusting something that they cannot see. Hebrews 11 gives us a great description about having faith that we cannot see. Christians spend their life knowing that they are made in the image of God and that they are to imitate Him and His actions. Knowing this, Christians will think out a situation and pray before moving forward with a situation.…

    A more modern version of this judgment is the hatred of homosexual marriage coming from the Christians. They use what is supposed to be a loving, caring God and scripture to discriminate and spread hate, and that just isn’t especially moral in the eyes of the majority. Christians use The Bible to give cause to their hate by picking and choosing parts of it to coincide with their agenda of spreading the gospel and supposedly saving souls from the eternal and the fiery pits of…

    The true religion, Christianity, requires us to believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that he died on the cross for our sins. Those who do not truly believe in this cannot be saved. No matter how many good deeds you did, and no matter how you are the nicest person in your neighborhood, if you do not believe in the truth, you cannot be saved. Thinking outside of Christianity, if all were to be saved, no one would want to be good – they would just do whatever they want to do because in the end, they are going to be saved. There would be social chaos because I know that some of those who are religious stop themselves from doing certain things so that they can go to heaven.…

    We push our religion on others instead of talking about Jesus, and that is why people are scared of Christians. Take the Muslims for example they have a good view on Jesus but hate Christians. So many people call themselves Christians but tend to only use that word as some sort of crutch, and fail to realize it is more than just a religion, but it is a true relationship. We are to treat others like Jesus treats them. We are to accept them where they are and point them towards God.…

    That which is the Heaven Father our Creator. The question of Morality in Christian worldview accounts for man’s downfall and his require for forgiveness in Romans 3:23. All of humanity misses the mark with righteousness with God regardless of how they try to live. Since all humans have shortcomings with God, it is vital we observe how we interrelate with each other. We must never overlook that all mankind was formed in God’s image, whereas that morality is essential in our interactions with each other.…

    Many aspects play a role in “The Great Sin of the Evangelical Right,” by Dan Olinger. These aspects allow him to believe that people do not behave like God has control over every situation. This appeals to the ridiculed Christian for living out their faith in modern society. It also requests the attention of those who see others in the world who claim, but do not let God take control. This article highly depends upon levels of formality, imagery, choices in the use of his language, and evidence.…

    Discrimination Against Christianity Christians are labeled as uneducated, judged for their beliefs, and discriminated against in the mainstream culture. It is absurd that people have a problem with the right to Freedom of religion, considering that our founding fathers found it so important that it they set in place as an amendment. It is hard to understand why people think that it is ok to discriminate against Christians. The Bible states that we will be persecuted for our beliefs. For example, in Second Timothy 3:12 it says “ Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ jesus shall suffer persecution (Bible KJV).” but that does not mean that it is ok to put forth discrimination on Christians.…
