The Importance Of Being Christians In The Bible

Better Essays
People today are so judgmental it makes me want to cry. I have a friend, who is very dear to me, who has been judge by so many people. I was raised to be nonjudgmental and kind, and it literally hurts my heart to see my friend being judge because he is gay. People bully him because they believe it is “wrong” to be gay because the Bible says so. I find it ridiculous. I am a Christian, and I believe in the word of the Bible. However, I also believe the bible was written in a time where a lot of the things today were never even thought of so of course they were considered unholy. A lot of people who are Christian have a problem with a person being gay and say many terrible things about people who are gay. I know the Bible says that being gay is an abomination and is a sin, but the Bible also says that Jesus died on the cross to forgive us all of our sins and that he loves all his children no matter what. The Bible also says that for a person to be a good Christian they do not judge others. I know a lot of supposedly “good Christian” who were the main people who were so terrible to my friend just because he was gay. So what we can gather from that is, people can see being gay as wrong but they are not supposed to judge a person if they are a good Christian.
I personally do not care if a person is straight,

I do not understand that. I do not think they “choose” to be treated terribly, for their parents, not always, to be ashamed of them, for people to tell them that they are going to hell that no one loves them, that they are “abominations”, and worst of all some are even told they do not deserve to live and they should kill themselves. I HATE it. When my friend told me that someone said that to them, my heart literally broke when I looked at his face. He was so devastated, and he started crying. It broke my heart in two, and I was so angry. He is a person! No one deserves what he went through. NO

    According to the Bible, Christ died for everyone sins but for those who believe in why he did will have everlasting life (John 3:16). The child represents Jesus Christ because he takes on the guilt of the town. The people who are aware of the child represent non-believers. Non-believers, do not claim Christ to be the son of God and that he died for their sins. The ones who walked away are believers because they understand that sacrifices have been made for their happiness and enjoyment but are ashamed that someone must take on their guilt for them to…

    Yes, it is true that we were brought up believing that this was a major sin, but, most of us won’t look at you any different. Most of us believe that everyone deserves the right to marry whomever they love. There is a passage in the bible that I love and feel like fits perfectly with this topic, “Do not judge, and you will not be judged; and do not condemn, and you will not be condemned; pardon, and you will be pardoned.” (Luke 6:37) Those who chose to "hate” any individual that chooses to participate in these marriages go against the morals of Christianity anyways. HELLO!!! Thou shall not hate thy neighbor happens to be a ten commandment.…

    Haven’t we all “sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23)? Haven’t we all heard, “Do not Judge, or you too will be judged,” (Matthew 7:1)? If we know this and preach this, why do we neglect to put it into practice? For even if homosexuality is sinful, and I believe it is not, we are still not permitted to hate those who practice it. Quite on the contrary, we are to love them and treat them with kindness and respect.…

    There are so many stories and news reports about riots and fights around the world with religion and gays. It’s sad to think that a person can shun and disrespect another because of who they classify themselves as. They think that everything in their religion is true, so they decide to corrupt society instead of making everyone happy and wanting peace in life. Most of the wars start because of religion, because others don’t believe in that, or that they think they are the right ones following the right…

    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.…

    Out of nowhere I became overcome with sadness and started to cry. With tears running down my face, I called my dad. I did something I have never done to either of my parents I went ballistic! I told him he ruined our family and mom can’t even function and that I basically hated him for going through with the divorce. As soon as I finished, I already felt guilty for what I did.…

    In the Bible, in Leviticus 18:22 it says “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” It can also be found that it is punishable by death. This same book also says that we should not Idolize anyone but God himself. “Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love” found in Jonah 2:8 says just this. However, we are seen constantly idolizing celebrities, athletes and politicians above and even before god. Now the same people who believe that homosexuality is evil, because the Holy Bible says so, can be found doing idolizing many other mortals before and even above God himself.…

    The people rejected God’s truth and committed unnatural acts with the same gender. “So Paul is saying not just that this is not the natural way of having sexual relations but that this is against what God intended in creation.” (Osborne, 53) Since sin has entangled people’s lives, human relationships have never been perfect. Even those saved through faith do not have ideally perfect relationships with others. People lie to, cheat on, steal of, and betray others “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) But fortunately for believers, God is a just and merciful God “and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” (Romans 3:24) Once someone becomes a Christian, they live by the Spirit. By wanting to obey God’s commands, their approach and attitude towards others will change.…

    They may be Muslims, but they are right where Jesus wants them, they are lost but they are seeking after Him. He talks about the story of Jesus walking on the water, and Peter gets out but sinks. He sinks because he didn’t have faith. We tend to laugh at Peter but deep down we know that we would not even dare to try to walk on the water. Just because we know all about the Christian religion and go to services and worship Jesus does not mean we are following Jesus, it takes much more than that.…
