People are like that everywhere, “religion” or not. I’d chalk it up to human nature and focus on the prize. Continue to work on your relationship with Christ , growing and maturing. Those people are not worth your worries! I’m sorry people suck sometimes!

Pray for them!

That is not very Christian like to judge somebody like that. Your faith is between you and God.

I think that’s also frustrating for those thinking about really investing into and becoming deeper Christians. I don’t think that the intent is to be exlusive or “cliquey” but to surround themselves with people who are Christian like them, but sometimes the way it comes across is very offputting. 

Don’t let it worry you…as long as you are comfortable with how you are and your relationship with God, that’s what matters.

I despise how some people stand behind the veil of presumed righteousness to mask their apparent exclusivity and hatred. Not so Christ-like, if you ask me.

Sorry you’re going through this. Somewhat related, I saw a phrase about religion once that I thought was hilarious:
Religion is like a penis–
It’s great to have one.
It’s great to be proud of it.
But please don’t take it out in public and start waving it around
And please don’t shove yours down my children’s throats.

Your friend is kind of a bitch for repeating that to you, no?

@ieatunicorns: agreed….her saying that was not exactly ‘Christian”.

Not exactly the type of thing you say to someone…geeze. The worst part is you can’t even talk back to her about it because you’ll just seem even more “un Godly”.

I think it’s ironic she said that to you while you were at a bible study, presumably of your own free will. That sounds spiritual and godly to me.

“Whichever one of you is without sin, cast the first stone.” But, moreover, “First take the stick out of your own eye. Then you will be able to see to take the dust out of your brother’s eye.”

My mother always tells me, “The only difference between a Christian & a non-Christian is Jesus Christ.” The point is, people are people. I’ve learned this. No matter where you go, man is man- he/she will be hypocritical, mean, rash, & blind; some not so much as others, but nonetheless… Whatever people’s religion, beliefs, spirituality, color, creed, etc., they often keep their dictations based on hear-say & mass opinion, without thinking much on whether to agree with it or not. Studies show most people would rather follow something by measure of what everyone else is doing, more than if it’s right or wrong. (Not speaking in regards to Christianity, but nearly anything that exists.)

Jesus Christ befriended & loved all of those socially outcast. Whatever their views are on “Godliness,” if the heart of Christ is in them, they will see you for who you are, as we have to make sure we’re maintaining the Love of Christ in ourselves.

And Lastly, like an earlier poster said, the Pharisees were viewed as super-holies, yet they judged & crucified Jesus. Don’t let ’em get you down. 🙂 Our faith needs to stand strong & justified not just against unbelief, but those who claim the Love of God and act otherwise.

Don’t be concerned. Love Jesus, & love like Jesus did. 🙂
