Tehee, with a couple exceptions, I have not seen any people claiming to be real 'saved Christians' on Topix who present themselves here as I would expect to see a Christian acting in my real world (although the internet is pretty well my real world most of the time lately).<quoted text>
Many want to believe in something better than what we see. However, the thought of giving something up is what really bothers them the most. Then you've got the christians that believe Grace covers all their sin and they can sin all week, confess and start all over again. Many christians are a disgusting display. Instead of showing their hearts they want to convert us to their way of believing and therefore, I completely understand the agnostics of our day.
Peace to you :)
Perhaps if all one has to do is accept Christ to be considered a Christian, then they make the mark, but if one has to act as Christ taught people (according to the stories) then they have entirely missed the mark.
