(Taken from this blog post: http://dearopinionphobes.blogspot.com/2015/07/are-christians-brainwashed.html ) Most Christians who have argued with someone on a topic whether it be homosexuality, abortion, evolution or any other subject chances are they have been accused of being a "brainwashed Christian" which according to the accuser, is logic enough for the Christian's standpoint is to be ignored, but are these accusations true? The logic behind this reasoning is that most Christians believe in Hell and eternal punishment unless they accept Jesus as their Savior, not question the Bible or to ignore science completely. Which does sound like brainwashing if you look at it in that perspective, but are these accusations really true? The answers is this: Yes, there are some who are Christians who are "brainwashed" who simply believe in what they do just because that is what they are taught. But it doesn't mean Christians alone are brainwashed. Atheists can be brainwashed by their own fear tactics. For example, what does an Atheist believe in? They believe there is no God or supreme being. Many Atheist I have met consider the belief of God "Illogical". Since they cannot see God, they believe he cannot exist; answered prayers are coincidence, miracles can supposedly be explained through Science eventually, and anyone who believes in God are living in a delusion. Wouldn't that have an effect on their children and those around them? It gives the impression that belief in God is ignorant, and to think a person have encountered God is a delusion. Isn't that technically brainwashing? The fear of being ignorant if you believe in a supreme being or a spiritual realm? Both sides are guilty But how can a Christian break free of the " brainwashed" Christian mindset? Know what you believe: Read the Bible and find the truth. If you are constantly saying "I believe that things should be this way, just because I was taught this in church" you might want to reevaluate your views. I encourage Christian's to be willing to research Science, after all, the definition of Science (according to the Oxford Dictionary) is : "the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment." Shouldn't we as Christians look at the world around us and find the truth that God really does exist? I believe we can. 2 Timothy 4:1-4 I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: 2 Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; 4 and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 5 But you be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry. Romans 1:19-20 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse
Hello everyone! What does everyone think about Christians dating non-believers? Or someone of a different religion? I personally don't think it matters, because God loves everyone on this world equally, regardless of if we all believe in the same religion or not My boyfriend is an atheist, but honestly, I don't mind it He has come to Church multiple times, just to see what it is like, and has made it clear that it isn't for him I think that if two people are deeply in love, then they find a way to make it work The believer shouldn't ram the thought of Christ down the non-believers throat, but tell them that this is what they believe in If the non-believer wants to understand it, fine If they don't... then accept they don't believe in Christ However, the non- believer shouldn't constantly pressurise the believer for believing in the LORD God, and respect that they need time to pray, and come to terms that they always start eating a couple of seconds after them because they love to thank the FATHER before they eat, haha I know this debate is going to get a couple of responses because of the topic, so lets hear them! -ProudToBeJesusFreak (^-^)
