The good news is that we can be forgiven and brought into his unending love by trusting in Christ.

Your opinion of what God "should" be aside..you're not God. You don't get to decide that. He is. He created the universe, and HE gets to decide how things work. We are his creation, and we cannot tell HIM what to do.

Epic fail.

If we are forgiven we are no longer sinners. But you persist that we are all sinners.

If you are trying to advocate for your religion, you are failing. You would do better to just stop.

Fundies follow their heart by worshiping a god who hates.

Hate resonates with them.

You're right. In God's eyes, we are considered righteous and blameless...if we have the righteousness of Christ.

We are human beings, so, as the apostle Paul said he did...we all struggle with sin. The good news is that in God's eyes we are not punished for those sins if we have Christ.

I don't understand why you just don't stop sinning if it tends to upset your god.

For the same reason you don't.

This is one thing I will never understand: Christians who witness for their religion, completely turn people off, and continue to witness, thus self-defeating their own initiative. And no matter how much others tell them to stop, they push ahead, continue to fail, and then wonder why the number of people who identify as Christians continues to decline.

I have to admit, this is the reverse of what the OP asked for, but honestly, Christians keep chipping away at the respect I have for Christianity (as opposed to for the FORMAL RELIGION). I guess I should say to them: Keep up the bad work. Honestly, more and more you ruin it for me.

When you guys attack our religion non-stop, what do you really expect us to do? Every single day on this forum, we see folks mock, insult, and make fun of our religion. What would you have us do?

But I have. It's not that difficult.

I'm sorry you don't possess the strength of character required to stop hurting your god.
