The Christians -

All beware, the Christians are coming, the Christians are coming. Run and take cover. Hide!  Hide!  If yea be weak or if yea be going through hard times, they are coming for you. Hide yea children and yea aging for they too are vulnerable. Oh them Christians, if they gets hold of yea, they do not stop until they convert yea or die trying.

Who are the Christians and where did they come from? 

I often wonder if those whom call themselves Christians had really researched the origin of the term.  The word Christian only appears in the bible three times and it was first introduce in Acts chapter 11.  The second usage of the word was also in Acts chapter 16 and the last usage was in 1 Peter chapter 4.  There is no real definition for the word and at no time had Jesus ever made reference to his teachings as Christianity.  Christians are not favored by God, they have no special powers, nor are they holier than thou. Anyone can appoint themselves to be a Christian and many do but truth be known, the title comes with no real significance.

Christians Discriminate

Have you ever had a bible thumping, holy rolling, God crazy Christian approach you and ask if you were a Christian?  My those are some scary words and I'm always afraid to answer honestly.  If I say yes I am, I am lying about God. God never come to me and said, I appoint you to be a mythical creature called Christian.  For all I know, maybe God had a very special name for me, yet the minute I am truthful and say I am not, I am called a sinner and that I need to come into the Lord and be born again as a Christian.

Actions Of Christians

Christians claim to be Christ like.  I don't remember reading that Christ was a liar, substance abuser, wife beater, bigot, thief, adulterer and so many other negative things. If a self appointed Christian wants to judge others and claim to be Christ like, then act the part.  Each and every time you make claim to be Christ like and then commit the acts that are so unlike Jesus, it's a blasphemy.  Christians attend a church and yet they are not taught the true teachings, nor are the given moral instruction.  Don't go about claiming to be Christ like when you know  you are only going to make Jesus look bad.

Quotes from the King James Bible
And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.
Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a Christian.
Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.
