Mansoor, I will agree to disagree with you. However, I am still going to pray for you. Your view of Christianity does not surprise me at all. Honestly, I do NOT blame the world for hating Christians at all. I blame the institiutions of man which have twisted original 1st century Christianity into a religious blasphemy. 1st century Christians were not denominational or swallowed up by doctrine. They were fully devoted followers of Christ, and they understood this. Today, most people who say they are Christians really are NOT true Christians. It is sad, but this accounts for about 90% of all Christians in the world. Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Presbyterian, Catholic, it's all a bunch of baloney.

I consider myself as a TRUE Christian and strive to live up to Jesus' standards in my daily life. I fall short, of course, because I am a sinner. We are all sinners! If you don't admit this truth then you are making a very foolish, egotistical, and potentially dangerous mistake. But I understand that Jesus' atonement and death on the Cross at Calvary has paid my debt sin in full. I am reconciled to GOD the father. This being said, I am to go forward in life and set an example as a Christian by doing good in my life. A true Christian shows love and compassion for others.
