Default Re: Christianity- The world's most hated religion??(discuss)

Im a little confused,
They contradict the Scriptures (not like they're as important as some Christians make them out to be, but we'll talk about that later) that they're supposed to be following.
and then you say....
Over-dependency on the Bible/scriptures. Keep in mind, zealots- They're only really old documents! Besides, in the Dark Ages, our good old friend, the Roman Catholic church, changed many many things in the Bible
so are they old books that have been tampered with, or things that should be religiously followed?
for example, the passage against homosexuality in Leviticus. First of all, Moses probably wrote it in there because it was his own personal beliefs. Homosexuals are equal to heterosexuals because gays can't help their sexuality, and why would God create gay people if it was a sin to be gay?
Second of all, the passage said that gay people should be killed, which we now know is unnacceptable. Plus, Jesus kind of cancelled out the word of Moses when he was at the stoning of the prostitute, and said "Let he who is without sin throw the first stone"
SO then, the passages on homosexuality are wrong, but the one on not stoning ppl to death is right.

call me sceptic but u seem to pick and choose what ever you want, and call what you don't want the product of human interference.

ps explain these to.
"And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." King James Version, Genesis 1:28

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [malakoi], nor homosexual offenders [arsenokoites], nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God."
(new testament at that)

Leviticus 18:22
"Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination"

Leviticus 20:13
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.

If these qoutes are meaningless, what makes all of the others worth anything?

Plus, the Pope said that "God told him to invade the Holy Lands" and thus the Crusades began, and millions of Europeans died for not really anything in particular.
A ton of stuff in the bible is way less beleivable than this.

Yes, I think that trying to teach non-Christians about Jesus is good, but you have to do it non-evasively, don't make the other person uncomfortable, and let them decide for themselves if they wanna be Christians.
DO you belive that non-christian souls will eternaly burn in hell?
-if so then why would you care if ppl are a little offended when you really doing whats best for them?
-if not, then aren't ppl better off not knowing b/c they will go to heaven anyways?
