Love Your Neighbour As You Love Yourself by mmsen: 9:21am On Feb 26, 2020
Why do xtians seemingly have such a difficult time being decent people? Why must they blast church noise to the entire neighborhood at odd hours of the night? Or awaken early in the morning just to disturb people with their 'preaching' when they know that people will be sleeping? Why are they so inconsiderate?

Somebody seems to have included mistress of evil as her signature probably because she saw me typing about evil. What a nuisance.

As per the rest of your post, that's cultural.

If culture trumps religion does that not destroy any argument that xtians make about god's "power"?

THOSE DOING THAT ARE NOT CHRISTIANS!

THEY HAVE NO BUSINESS WITH THE MAN FROM NAZARETH WHO DETEST SUCH THINGS! Matthew 12:19

Jesus don't disturb the peace of his own community so those doing such irritable nonsense are not Christians!

mmsen your assertions are not totally correct especially your generalization as there are some Christians that don't disturb their neighbourhood. The government should be blamed for having soft spot for those noisemakers

Many (if not most) African xtians are members of these loud, noise-making, obnoxious churches. Are they not culpable for supporting them with their time, presence and money?

If it isn't the churches themselves then it's the members going out to 'evangelize' at stupid hours of the day. The members know it is happening, other xtians know it is happening, why do they not admonish them?

The world powers UN says there should be FREEDOM of speech, expression and worship!
This order has it's advantages and disadvantages as well. If not for this rule, the orthodox churches and Muslims will continue to oppress people forcing their beliefs on them, and wherever this two rival oppressors meet, such a place will become a battle field leading to the death of people in thousands.
And with this rule, many can wake up to become homosexuals, lesbians, bestialists , transgenders, crossdressers and so on.
That's why God's word admonished us to make the best use of this freedom we are enjoying to preach and teach the truth with zeal! smiley

Truth can be verified by way of proof.

You can't call it truth when nobody is paying attention and then call it 'faith' when challenged.

The underlined is correct!

But it now depends on what you termed as PROOF.

For instance, we were taught that figure 2 if added to itself will give us figure 4. We didn't just accepted it back then, we put it to practice and since it works then it becomes a global theory that 2+2=4

Likewise, FAITH has been defined as the assured expectation of things hope for, the evident demonstration of realities that are not visible! Hebrew 11:1

You said it couldn't be justified if nobody is paying attention to it and you should accept any challenge facing it. This is 100% logical!

The truth surely has those PAYING RAPT ATTENTION TO IT and it has been successfully in many places where there were different challenges! smiley

The countries where people waste the most time on xtian faith-based nonsense are some of most absurd, unequal, corrupt places on earth. Where has xtianity fixed a problem directly?

The book itself never said it's THEORIES will be generally accepted in a whole country.

What it gives as proof is that in the midst of people doing absurd things, the adherents of it's teaching will be noticed throughout the earth! Matthew 5:14-16
So in every country on planet earth where freedom of speech, expression and worship is at work, adherents of the things found in the book stands out as a unique people!

For your information, if you're not attentive enough you will judge all those claiming Christians as noisemakers whereas the TRUE Christians are respective and humble in all their dealings with neighbours regarding their worship!

When in doubt fall back on the No True Scotsman argument.

In the presence of DOUBT there is nothing called FAITH and where FAITH is in action there is no DOUBTS!

You've passed your accusation and i'm telling you that TRUE Christians are not guilty of such accusation! smiley

Are you denying that it happens?

Are you claiming that ALL of these churches that do such, as well as their members who park wherever/however they like in residential areas are not 'true xtians'?
