Top 10 Reasons Why Christianity Is TerribleHorrible_Username
The Top Ten
The Bible actually isn't against homosexuality, it is just Christian apologist spreading false believes and poisoning the well that ruin Christianity for everyone. - germshep24
The defense that it is against the act and not the people is in itself a reason that Christianity is terrible
Not all of them. I completely support the community. - Luckys
No words. I know people may not agree with this rule, and some might, but, being a Christian, let me just say this. According the Bible, being gay or bisexual just makes you NOT NORMAL. Yes it is a sin, but you're not going to Hell for it. Yes, many people are gay or bisexual, but it doesn't mean that you're a bad person! Yes, I think it's a choice, but many people don't. Just because you're gay or bisexual doesn't mean that you are going to Hell! It just means that you have committed a sin, and you are forgiven for it. So stop all the 'Christians think that gays should go the Hell' nonsense and just accept the fact that you are unique, and not normal like others, and that you will still be allowed to be in the best possible place after death: Heaven. - NoEntranceHereV 41 Comments
I am not Christian, yet I still have a large amount of respect for Jesus Christ because if the stories are true, it seems like he was a brave, kind, generous, and accepting person.
The Christian God on the other hand...
Is a coward: Rather than saving humans himself, he made his son Jesus sacrifice himself on the cross to save humanity. If He is supposedly all powerful, He could have just fixed everything right?
Is self centered: No matter how good you act, no matter how much good things you do in life, you are going to hell if you don't worship God. What if you were born and raised non Christian? It's not really your fault.
Is unjust: Sends people to hell for eternity because of mistakes someone may have made for the maybe 100 years they lived on Earth. Totally not fair.
Christian people are really nice though, and as I said, Jesus seems honorable.
Yes Jesus probably was a good person with good morals and some good teachings, It's just that he lit the match which burnt down the forest so to speak, But for worshiping him as the earthly son of a possible non-existent deity? Umm...no, Not that part.
For God though, Well...yeah he's a coward and rather evil, I mean, As you said, It's told that if you don't believe in God, Then it's straight to hell for you, But if that's the case for all, Then I suppose people who live in undiscovered tribes on tropical islands are going to hell then just because they've never even heard a whisper of him? Yeah that just doesn't make sense. - AnUnknownRider
This one is a mean, we have no idea what God can and can't do nor can understand the actions this God has made.
If your talking about why God doesn't stop bad things from happening, who is to say God has that ability to be able to stop it - germshep24
Jesus is real, I am muslim but Christianity and islam believe in a lot of similar things.
How is he an abuser? I get that he caused all the natural disasters and stuff like that, because WE ARE TURNING AWAY FROM OUR CREATOR! He loves us so much that we cannot comprehend it. Stop this. You can have your religion but leave ours alone. Go away. - The_Random_Content_Guy
He doesn't actually create natural disasters, it is because we are in a broken world. - neehawgamerV 22 Comments
Mistakes are part of life - BritishGoat
Everyone sins, the only person who didn't sin was Jesus because he was perfect. You know the saying, "You learn from your mistakes." Has anyone ever told you that? - The_Random_Content_Guy
Again, it's how you interpret the bible - GleamingShadow
You end up going to hell for being gay. You also go to hell is you cut your own hair. You go to hell if you disobey your parents. Does this sound reasonable to you? If so, you're a sick person. People can't help being gay, it's just how they were born. Homophobes are no better than racists
Lies, lies, lies! You don't go to hell for being gay or for cutting your own hair or for disobeying your parents. I've done two out of these three things, but that doesn't change the fact I'm a Christian. This argument is mainly false. "Sins are mostly things that are natural and a part of life." True. "...that sometimes people can't help." False. God knows that no one is perfect, everyone sins, and He forgives all of us for sinning. This, however, does not give us the excuse to sin because while it's normal and natural and hard not to do, it's not okay! The best you can do is try not to sin, say sorry to God and repent from your sins, believe in Jesus as His Son, and confess your faith in Him. Besides, He gave us the ability to think and decide for ourselves even if He knew we would sin because He loves us. - listotaku17V 6 Comments
I hope you understand the history of religion and realize that back then, nobody had access to the technology that allowed us to create theories that told us how life started, as opposed to what religious text stated. What religious text had stated is what traditions and ideas had developed over time with what humans of that time could’ve thought of. Obviously these ideas are well past their date, but unless they are causing direct harm toward you, then you need to show respect for them. - Archived

That is literally the most stupid "opinion" in history. - neehawgamer
I for one agree, Churches have these youth programs like "children's church" etc&etc. That's how Hitler started his Nazi youth programs, it makes a lot of sense to install this crap in early minds until they grow up believing, or smart enough to be able to critically think and break away from it all. Example: If there was a religion about The Monster Under The Bed and that child was taught there was a monster under the bed had all these programs about a monster under the bed they would grow up still believing that there is one. Hopefully -aforementioned- a natural critical thinker can break away and realize its indoctrination created by selfish and the manipulative.

It's strange how Christians like to bash on Muslims for their rigid, puritanical beliefs, yet these same Christians hold to these same rigid, puritanical beliefs. It's unbelievable that in places like the USA, politicians get the vote by bashing on gay people, minorities, etc. At least in Switzerland, the government is more secular compared to the USA, and people here seem to get along. No corrupt politicians using bad language. And yes, people in Switzerland do value education very well. - CountFritz

There is a social media page against all video games and guess who that's run by *drum roll*, Christian moms. They even say educational games are bad. Those idiots pretty much want to kill all white male gamers. That's Racist in a way! The people who run that page just know about games like thrill kill, manhunt 2, and postal 2.

And what might those "contradictions" be - The_Random_Content_Guy
A scientist will read hundreds of books and still be eager to learn more. A Christian will pick and choose whatever part they like from one book and think they know it all.
Some science is true, but some is not. Do you really believe that this world was made on accident? That just isn't possible. The possibility of that happening is the trash in a junkyard turning into an incredibly detailed jet. Not gonna happen.
To reply to your comment, I would like to say that I agree with what you say. I am actually a Jew but I know lots about Christianity and it's quite interesting. But I also think that whether or not you believe the bible is totally your own thing. I don't believe the bible to be completely and utterly true, but I believe it to be a metaphor, a way to help people get by in this world through a series of stories and ideas. There are also other people who believe the bible to be completely true which is fine. It's your belief, you get to do what you want with it. - username34
There are plenty of Christian scientist who actually getting fired for there belief. I don't think that's fair.
There is a zealot firing those Christians, but also, why would being a scientist be a fully-fledged job unless you were a chemist? - LargeDemonV 6 Comments
Praying is just asking for help. It's not about changing everything but, if God agrees to it, you might be lucky to be heard your prayer and grant it. But, as we all know, the bible says that God chooses the people to be the caretaker of the world. So, it is we should act to make something to change for the better not for the worst. It is we, who are here, to do the responsibility for the good of mankind. And God gave us the ten commandments or the bible to be our manual handbook, just to know how we will use our life, that was given to us by Him. God is not the abuser. The humans are the abuser of what God has give to them. God did not put a price to everything that He made. But human put a price to everything that God has made for free. Water, land, air... Everything is free when God gave this to us. And now, everything has a price to pay. Who abuses who?
Well whoever made this will go to hell. And for the last time, God is not an abuser! - The_Random_Content_Guy
I wonder how I can get this taken down. If I find out...! - neehawgamer
Praying make zero sense since God said that he has a plan for you. So why pray he's going to do what he wants anyway, unless you can change his mind.V 17 Comments
That's it! I'm reporting this list! - The_Random_Content_Guy
Isn't that basically this lists title just reworded? - GleamingShadow
Explain please? - GleamingShadow
That's a horrible reason. Christianity is very interesting, and can save your life. It's kind of like a club; you do stuff and you get rewarded. Sure, there are fights in between. But having a group of people who's lives has been turned around by religion is absolutely touching. I don't like to talk about religion myself, but I have no problem talking about it in situations like this. - Pony
And god created the earth, although god has no evidence of existence in the first place? - LargeDemonV 10 Comments
I am sick and tired of this common myth. If you commit a sin (yes, even unintentionally), all is forgiven, and you can be happy that Jesus died on the cross so you could go to Heaven, although you just took two cookies from the cookie jar even though you were told not to. But seriously, you can't go around just doing whatever you please. There is punishment for that, and that is having to face all your sins at the end of your life, and have to beg to go to Heaven, although you always will. - NoEntranceHere
This is also exaggerated. You just have to ask for forgiveness. If you don't, that's on you. - neehawgamer
That is not true I hate it when people over exaggerate it clearly you don't read the bible, I have sinned everyone has know body is perfect that is why he sent his only son to save us from sin so you can pray for your sins. But if you are a cruel person like I don't know Hitler than you will go to hell but don't you think that is fair he killed all those people
If you do bad things you always have a chance to repent as long as you are still breathing (that is, until you have died. ) Jesus does not WANT to put people in hell, he WANTS you to repent and follow him.
This is not true one bit. the bible says a that are good and bad deeds do not determine heaven or hell.. the only thing that does is if you believe Jesus christ is your savior! He is alive and he is coming to earth soon. someday your going to wish you can go back.
Yeah which is stupid. From what you're saying, a rapist murderer who killed 30 people could go to heaven, and a friendly atheist who helps the poor could go to hell. What kind of system is that? A stupid one - SammySporeV 6 Comments
Those are the extremists. Every group has extremists, even atheism. - neehawgamer

lots of wars have been fought over religion - GleamingShadow
You don't have to be in the army or have an army to kill. Christianity is organised religion. Whenever something is organised ( even the Maffia is organised ) and that this organisation decides to kill in name of the supposed organisation, there is crime.
This is true, but don't all religions do this? It's a cliche at this point - KingSlayer93316V 12 Comments
That's mormonism, not Christianity. (no offense to any mormons, you're very nice people) - username34

We don't insist. It's your choice if you want to believe in Christianity or not. If someone is insisting, then they are not true Christians. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

And many of their beliefs also come from Zoroastrianism too believe it or not. It's not surprising because around the time of Jesus was around the time of Islam starting (If I'm remembering correctly) and the symbol for Islam came from the Pagan moon and star gods.

Yeah! Wait, in... what... since when has this ever happened!? Anything like that has largely been debunked. Plus, even if it isn't, we can ignore it all we want because it still is true no matter which way you look at, but people are just ignorant and don't accept that it is true and that science won't debunk it! - NoEntranceHereV 1 Comment

So your saying if you do something bad than you shouldn't be ashamed of yourself for doing something like that? Shame tells people when your doing the wrong thing. If you don't have shame then you won't feel bad about what you did you would do it again. Shame is an important part of your conscientious.
In every religion it does.
Suppose you kill an innocent person. That person had no idea why yet you killed him. So you are a murderer and a criminal now. Shame is sort of important because it alerts you of what you've done wrong. It helps you distinguish between right and wrong. And if the murderer felt shame he would have realized his mistake and stopped killing and be sorry. Don't you know anything? - TwilightKitsune
If you can't even spell evolution, you're probably too dim to comment on it.

Considering all of the Christian metal and rock bands out there, you really think this? - KingSlayer93316
Apparently, the Christian school I go to thinks that Christian Music such as Casting Crowns is the devil's music. My mom however, probably would've started a huge argument if she went there one day, because Casting Crowns is one of her favorite artists. I'm a Christian, obviously, and what do I listen to?

Cross symbolizes the sacrificing of Jesus to the cross, where He died to save mankind from sins. Sins that was made by those people who truly repent from their sins and change their life by obeying God's will - and not those who doesn't change their life after committing sins. Cross also means protection from evil forces that surround us because, it is used for saving us from sins. So, God change the image of the cross from a tools to torture people to the tools that save people. God knows who does not pay their sins in this world. Those sins that does not yet punished in this world will never be forgiven in the afterlife. Those who have been punished in this world, because of their sins and change their life by obeying God's commandments, will be forgiven and enter in God's kingdom. Just like the person who was crucified on the cross with Jesus and ask Jesus to take him with Jesus to heaven. Because he believes in Jesus as the son of God and he repent and also punished to the cross ...more

This is a stupid reason. They haven't suddenly changed.
The bible does say that slavery is O.K. - westofohio
Times have changed, so have slavery views. I bet scientists from Biblical times had slaves too. - neehawgamer
Yeah because they don't want to go to hell. They don't understand how can people send themselves to hell if they don't believe in it? Ignore that no one has ever seen God, unless it's the Bible with that burning bush.
Apparently, it's supposed to treat people like slaves, and I can agree with this. However, Christians actually WANT to be treated like slaves, and they WANT their lives to be controlled by God, and that's pretty much how it is.
Why did they take the book out that stats that you can worship at home in your own way, and don't have to go to church. One word "money" - westofohio

True that, true that. So, most Christians use the original scriptures, from the 'King James' version. Other versions of the Bible are used, though. That is where other religions stem from, like Baptism and Mormonism. - NoEntranceHere

Ah first of all Satanism is one of the most misunderstood religions of all time and its not EVIL!
I just think it's a stupid religion. Young one, too. - Metalhead1997
Let me explain this as someone who was raised as a christian...who still believes in God, just not in the way christians do.
It is said that if you do not put your faith or belief in God, after death you will be sent to this terrible place of isolation called Hell where this evil being called Satan resides.
That's like saying God, and 'his' disciples, want to scare you into thinking that if you aren't a believer of God, you will end up like this one evil rebellious angel named Lucifer and be "damned into Hell for all eternity."
But a typical christian would tell you that it's not about that. They would say that, rather, it is about "accepting God into your heart and all will be forgiven." Yeah, sure, you can go with that all you want, but it doesn't hide or change the fact that you're using fear in one way or another to get people to submit to it.
Last I checked, God was supposed to be the embodiment of Love...and Love is the polar opposite of Fear.

Anyway ever heard of a magician who was going to walk over the River Thames in London but was stopped by the police.
Try looking at it a bit differently. Heaven is a gift. We don't even deserve to go there. But Jesus decided that whoever receives his gift and asks for forgiveness is in. Not like you have to be perfect. - neehawgamer
That's just self-obsessed from Jesus
The bible considers all people under 20 children.
This doesn't make any sense because the law states you're an adult at 18. So why isn't the law changing everything to 20+? And another thing, even 20-year-olds still aren't old enough to drink yet so would that mean God would be smiting the government for having most certain adult things be 21+?
And yet another thing I wanna point out is that if 18-year-olds really are children, then would that mean it's okay for them to go out and have sex with underage teens? I mean I don't encourage teen sex, I'm saying that we shouldn't be normalizing relationships between 18-year-olds and underage teens because it actually is pedophilia.
Christian here. Where in the bible does it say you're an adult at 20? If you've ever actually read it, you would know that an age of accountability doesn't exist in it. I think the whole age thing was invented by apologists to see what age a child is mature enough to choose to follow God.
There is no age of majority in the bible.
That can be true, but there are so many non-Christian songs like this too. - neehawgamer
