Who are Christians?

30 November 2012, 13:05
WHAT  AND WHO ARE CHRISTIANS
Due to the nature and origins of this article it is necessary to quote names of News 24 users in order to plane the playing field evenly. What exactly is a Christian?    

Christian: Professing or following the religion of Christ,  Relating to or derived from Christ or his doctrine. Manifesting the spirit of Christ or his teachings.  Characteristic of Christianity or Christendom., Human, Civilised and decent. (Collier Standard Dictionary)     In retrospect it would be seen that I have seldom partaken in the religious arguments that rage on the NEWS 24 . 

The reason being that I have seldom seen the attributes of Christianity emanating from many, not all, persons using, and abusing that media outlet. I grew up in a Christian home yet was always aware of the abuse by Christians of their religion. My own face-to-face contact with Christians has left me wondering exactly why and what makes them superior to others that do not abide by their calling. I have seen those that refer to themselves as Christian end up in jail and/or ostracised by the society at large. I have seen them, the Christians break all the laws of Moses and the Ten commandments; they are Christians and that, on its own gives them power from heaven;. That brings them to the level of Charles and his bergie. Charles professes to be a Christian but from a remote vantage point th is just a hypocrite and nothing more. Him and others have just not accepted and obeyed the terms and conditions of being a Christian. What I have experience is when people use pseudonyms then Christendom flies out of the window:  I assume that is fleeing from their God, or themselves.    

As I stated earlier that I grew up in a Christian home and at that time I was ensconced in ”Christianity” and it was a way of life.    


When I turned my eyes to the greater Christian world beyond me I saw the Christian for what he/she is. Running around the world, telling all and sundry about god and his love but tonight she/ he is in the beds of others., they pray to their gods and receive nothing and lie about it. They mention the hereafter but that normally ends in a bar or pub. Is it in the Christian way of life to humiliate persons who they hardly know merely for a laugh at their own abilities. Is it in the word of god to hate others whom are seen as lesser than themselves. Lying, stealing and the rest of the laws of Moses. That is why I have left the doctrines of Christianity and would rather be bound by Atheism or similar. How does God  consent to the actions of Charles who wrote an article solely to humiliate me in the eyes of others? Is that OK with God. Maybe God looks the other way.     I have come to the point that I can only hate him and his gods. And in the same vein I hate Christians in general, not for their gods but for what they are.  

 If heaven is your final landing then I would rather aim at hell
