Here's what makes Chrstianity a catch 22.
Many modrern day christians such as those on this board, say that true christianity isn't the way it has been portrayed by other professing to be such. They say they are open in views, not judgemental of others, they say god is the judge and they cannot condemn others who are non-believers to a death sentence.
This idea, though it sounds good.......does not line up with jesus own supposed teaching, and non-believers who know a bit about the bible are aware of this.
Jesus clearly taught that it was ONLY through him could others have life. People had to CONFESS they believed in him. By eating his flesh, drinking his blood, could ones be forgiven. He is the door, and NOBODY gets to the father EXCEPT.....through him. One MUST be born again.
All of the above statements contradict what many christians say as to who will get life. To me........it says if you don't believe in Jesus.......your toast.....PERIOD! It is THIS message......that make ones bitter, who are not believers in christianity.
You are condemed....plain and simple. You are threatened in the same manner the Organisation threatens a witness..... "believe this way or die sucker.......even if you don't see it our way......you must believe our way or die".
