Right Wing Christianity

Reader comment on item: British Government Worries about Radical Islamic Teachings at Universities

Submitted by Stephen (United States), Jun 24, 2006 at 12:13

I'm not sure what Mr. Rammell considers far right Christianity, but I've heard plenty of people say before that Christian fundamentalists/conservatives/extremists/radicals etc.. hate the Jews, hate Muslims and so on.

First, true Christians ARE fundamentalists! If the Bible IS the Word of God, why would a true believer not believe and try to adhere to all the Bible teaches? To pick and choose out of the Bible what you want to believe is just making up your own religion---which many so called Christian denominations do. And I suppose many Muslims do likewise. Why we call people who try to adhere strictly to the teachings of Christianity--or Islam or whatever--extremists, I don't understand. I term these people devout sincere followers of their faith. If two guys playing tennis strictly follow the rules of the game, should they be labeled extremists or radicals because they don't bend the rules here and there or make up some of their own rules for the game?? No, tennis has a strict set of rules which serious players follow and don't deviate from.

A true Christian, one who accepts the entire Bible as the inerrant Word of God and sincerely trys to follow it's untwisted teachings, certainly could not HATE anyone, as Christ even taught to "love your enemies". Denominations may differ on interpretations of various topics in the Bible, but true believers believe in Jesus as God in the flesh while here on earth, the One who paid the price for the sins of those who would accept Him as Lord and Saviour--truly accept Him, His words and teachings. Only by and through Jesus' sacrafice are we made rightous in Gods' sight. From there we could go to a large number of teaching of Christ and the apostles which, if you are honest in your studies, you arrive at only one true interpretation---like it or not. A true believer accepts this truth based on faith in Jesus and the Bible as the Word of God---not based on his own opinion or human mind.

Many people do not know what the Bible truly teaches, what logical, unbiased interpretation of the Scriptures arrives at, therefore what true Christians believe. There is such a drive to reject Christianity that most people accept it's criticisms so they can justify their reason to not believe the Bible to be the very revelation of God. Only with a humble heart, approaching God on your knees, sincerely asking Him to reveal the truth about Himself, can anyone ever know and believe in Jesus and God's revelation to mankind--The Bible.
