    I I normally don't do the religion questions on here but I thought this would be interesting for the christians and to see how they feel about this


    When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living. I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.'

    When I say 'I am a Christian', I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

    When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

    When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

    When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

    When I say 'I am a Christian', I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

    When I say 'I am a Christian', I'm not holier than thou, I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!

    Beautiful! This is something I believe all Christians can learn to appreciate.

    This really doesn't look like a question, it looks more like a poem. I like this though. And for you not to be a Christian, this is good.

    Spot on Pamela, I the whole world could live by that creed we would have no wars, no starving people, no crime boy wouldn`t it be great?

    Your never forget is one I treasure. No one can make a better fist of being you but you. You are unique in a world of uniqueness. Every tree or blade is in its` own way unique.

    I thank you humbly for sharing that with us.

    I am a non believer in a god entity but a great advocate for human responsibility.
    IamPamela313

    Thanks, P-Lover! It was just a spin-off from what "JDB" posted.
    Ms Sinclair

    Pamela I'd like to ask you a stupid question. How do you line up your responses numerically like that (with each numbered comment per line)? I've been trying to figure out how to do that.
    IamPamela313

    make your adjustments through "edit this answer"
    Tommyh

    That's a neato way to change the subject on these religous questions Ms S.I will remember that one.
    Wow... I could never had written that but it says all that is in my heart... TAHNK YOU so much for sharing.
    And Ya I'm a christian, like my beer like to raise {heck} I don't push it on anyone unless you want to talk about it, then I would try to recommend some one that would know more that me to talk about
    Bob/PKB

    I would want to talk with you because you don't know everything. Sharing the "Good News" with someone who isn't a know-it-all is a really good way to learn and grow. Don't sell yourself short.
    I LOVE IT
    I like that, it's beautiful and true,it's how I and a lot of other Christians feel,I'm just a normal human being,I like to have fun and sometimes I'm a bit naughty,but I love Jesus and I appreciate what he did for us,I'm thankful to have him in my life,and I take things as they come,one day at a time.Thanks so much for sharing JDB.
    That's it. The true christian! THANK YOU!

    Thanks for sharing.  The tone of your writing was really humble.  It is sad that Christians have to take all kinds of crap from the rest of the world.  I honestly don't see any other religion being harassed as much as Christianity.  I guess it's because people look at Christians and see that none of us comes close to being perfect, so they wonder how we can even say we are Christians. I

    Hmm sounds like sheep among wolves . Hi Bob: Christians harassed??? What are you talking about everyone loves a Christian they just may not know it.. #:^) Our fight is not against flesh and blood, so if our battle is a spiritual one, then we should find comfort in the fact that we are great because He that is in us is Greater then all this>>>> God Bless and Peace Be Still in Jesus Name..


     


     

    Do you believe a Christian is obligated to try and convert others, who may have different beliefs?
