A lady on my facebook feed posted an image that said, “like if you think America should return to its Christian values.”
Slavery – It was Christians, good GOD fearing people that helped make slavery part of American history. To be fair, and to spread the blame, a good number of slave ships were owned by Jews. If we want to go back to our Christian values, are we going to enslave blacks?
Drinking – It was GOD fearing Christians that gave us Prohibition. Are we going to outlaw drinking again?
Marijuana – it was good GOD fearing Christians that helped outlaw the use of marijuana.
Gay Lifestyle – it was GOD fearing Christians that has helped fuel hatred towards gays. Shouldn’t we let someones lifestyle be their choice, instead of societies choice.
Why would we want to live a lifestyle that promotes hatred towards certain people? What kind of GOD tells his followers to kill people who commit adultery?
Maybe we need to scrap the old testament and following the teachings of Christ. Forget the apostles, forget the teachings of everyone that came after Christ. If we took the teachings of Christ, and Christ alone, then, and only then would there be a religion worth following.
What makes Christ so different? Because he taught people to love one another, period.
