Time to put this out here, see what people think.

Do you take Christianity seriously as a religion? Do you think it should be considered like other religions, with rich cultures, traditions, values, and practises... or is it just a bunch of lies that everyone is tired of and would be better without.

It should be taken seriously and respected
OR
It should not be taken seriously, and should not share the same light with other serious religions such as Buddhism, Islam, etc.

It should be taken seriously as any religion. Its based on judaism and is a basis for Islam, so its earned its place amongst the rest of them, wherever that may be.

All religions are the same to me. One of the phenomenons in this world that bothers me most is members of different religions actually thinking their religion is any better, or more relevant, than the next. They all have different beliefs to some degree, only one can be accurate (although personally I would most certainly say none are), yet people from certain religions still look down on other religions. Utter lunacy if you ask me.

I voted no, because I don't take any religion seriously.

U think money is the root of all evil? I would say it's religion, because it gives people reason to think that "God" justifies evrything they do.

Yes Christianity should be respected, like Islam and Judaism. Actually all those religion that preach peace and fraternity should be respected. Unfortunately there is a lack of religion in the world, that's why probably there are so much wars....

Why aren't Buddhism, Islam, etc. questioned?

All religions are the same to me. I don't believe in any.

Use it for yourself. If you gain strength from it, that's fine with me.

Well I'm kinda confused on the question.

Are you asking if it should be taken seriously compared to other religions or if it's practices should be taken seriously.

If it's the first then I think it's one of the more serious religions compared to one like catholoicism (which I don't take serious or respect) but if you mean in terms of the actual practice I don't believe a lot of people take it seriously due to so many people running around claiming their devout christians but they do very little of what the religion asks in order to stay rightious. But I guess that could be said of all religions.

I choose to just be rightious as opposed to religious as I believe that religion divides.

Yes, As with all religions/faiths/beliefs.. There are many misconceptions on all fronts.

In regards to a previous comment..

I believe it's "The love of money, that is the root to all evil"

I believe in Christ, not Christianity. If that makes sense to u. In other words,

I believe what Christ stood for was infact something real and I do some what to an extent belive some of his teachings, but the teachings of priests and other religeous figures associated with Christianity are ridiculous and appauling, nothing but a bunch of pedophiles who r drunk off of their own sick and twisted beliefs IMO. I don't belive anything they say because Christianity has been watered down from generation to generation to fit with today's standards of belief.

example: In the new bible, it promotes sex before marriage and it does not consider being a homosexual a sin; now I have no troubles with either of those, but generally speaking I was brought up in the sense that its wrong to do either. I'm not homophobic, but I don't agree with being gay, I don't really care about the sex b4 marriage bit, cus I do it all the time with my girl who I've been with 4 the past year or so, lol

Anywayz, Christianity is a difficult topic to discuss because no one (unless u are a bible thumper ofcourse) can really go in depth with it because no one really understands it, even if they go to church every Sunday. Unless you've read the bible cover to cover, memorized the testements and what not, no one really understands christianity. You can KNOW christianity, but as I said b4, unless u r a hardcore bible thumper, you'll never UNDERSTAND christianity.
In another weird way/example: 2pac

U can listen to 2pac, be a fan of pac by memorizing his lyrics and rockin his clothes n what not, but do u really listen to what he's tryin to say? I mean, U can listen, but r u really hearin his lyrics? He's rappin about gats n henessee yeah, but do u hear the real story behind his stuff?

lol, anywayz not 2 get off topic, I stand by what I said b4, and I guess in another way of putting it, I follow Christianity in my OWN way as well as other religeons like Budhism and Muslim, which it seems the majority on this topic do as well.

Thats just my view, hope I didn't offend any1, its just my opinion.
peace
very well put kris!

thats definitely what i would just about say as well!!

i don't think any religion should be categorised as more serious or more important then another. so iin terms of that question then christianity should be taken seriously if religion is taken seriously. But it is dependant on the individual, if you believe in religion as a concept then it should be taken as seriously as the rest, but if you don'y believe in any religion that it can be taken as the same as all others and hence not serious. the question wasnt very clear and thus neither is my answer.

and this is the problem right here. people love to speak on what they dont know. there was a thread in the wu chamber about a guy from the NGE having a problem with members of wu not really repping the nation. various people posted in that thread saying ignorant stuff about the NGE not knowing the real history or philosophy of the NGE.

man is currupt in nature and will take something that is pure and disctort it for their own gain and power. you cant take these things at face value, you have to find the truth. there's too mnay people who dont know what they're talkin about that have a lot of opinions on things. this is where all the "religion" bashing comes from.

peace Yes there is great fear in detachment from family because of religious beleifs especially with a christian family( I aint downin on christians) because the religion is more sceptical about other religions. Me and my cousin became outcasts from my grandmother when my cousin became a buddhist and I told her i beleived in more of the buddhist religion then the christian, but we were never detached from the family. But I do understand because I know many christian families that basicllly disowned there own children because they beleived in a different religion.

Time to put this out here, see what people think.

Do you take Christianity seriously as a religion? Do you think it should be considered like other religions, with rich cultures, traditions, values, and practises... or is it just a bunch of lies that everyone is tired of and would be better without.

It should be taken seriously and respected
OR
It should not be taken seriously, and should not share the same light with other serious religions such as Buddhism, Islam, etc.

First of All, is it serious?
Of course it is. Allah revealed it long time ago upon Jesus -may Allah's peace be upon him- and it's absolutely unjust to put Christianity and Buddhism on the same level because Buddhism is the one to be considered as lies because it teaches its followers to worship things that either materialistic or things that ain't doin' them good nor bad things like idols, animals or nature. It allows its followers to insult the human being intelligence that god gifted them.

Christianity ain't bunch of lies. It's a religion that came to tell people truth about themselves, their true god and the reason why they were created. It simply had the same message that Islam has. It was revealed by God as a system to organize the people's life. Christianity needed changes and that's why God revealed Islam as the last system or should i say lifestyle to be accepted for all human beings and for all time. It's something like relay race or somethin'. One religion takes the message from the another to give it to the last. One is Christianity, another is Judaism and the last is Islam.

any word not taken to its consequence of final action that results is not to be taken literally so one must assume figuratively in possible accord with some spirituality. the way of life they lead and live yes they believe with all their heart and put all their faith like the coming is guaranteed from the words of revelation. the religious aspect that those buy into not for a second. its a mix of roman greek babylonian jewish zoroastrianism manchaeism egyptian cults and such a great look at melting pots that leaves people frozen out like dissolution from final solution. politically what would jesus do accept christ or trust god? can i get a list of the denominations to play partisan politics as to who's teaching the jesus and who's preaching the christ?
