How should we relate with the unbelievers.
The unbelievers are those who practice other religions aside Christainity and those who don't believe in Jesus Christ and God. It best we relate cautiously and firmly with the unbelievers so we don't get confused or convinced in sinning against God or engaging in unholy acts.

How best should we relate with the unbelievers in our working places / places we find ourselves in ?

Do unto others as you will like others do unto you

Religion present God to us as a being we should be looking for like He's far from us...is why you see people jumping form church to church or Religion to Religion where's we should be looking inward and that's the hardest.

Everyman want to be president, Governor, Chireman,....we want to change the world.... But how many really want to change his/herself?
Let your light shine before men....... You know the rest.

It's like you're being ignorant on purpose.

"You may purchase male or female SLAVES from among the foreigners who live among you" .

If the sentence above has another meaning please let me know.

"He that Stealeth a man" is totally different from "You may purchase a slave.
Don't be ignorant and learn to read and understand.
You probably don't know much in that Bible of yours.

Religion/Pantheism/Deism can't be correct.
Ultimately,concepts such as the above are wrong

There are only 3 types of born again christians.

1. Old people who are about to die.

2. Poor and sick people who have no hope.

3. The uneducated.

I can bet my life you fall under one of these.

Kingzeez10:

Why is non of you counter this man narration but you all trooped to Muslim threads on Friday's to abuse, shame their religion, calling them pedophiles, rapist etc whereas both of you are the same.

The Op was asking about Christianity and their way of Life while @Kingzeez was relating to Jewish customs and traditions.

Christians are forbade from practicing any custom and traditions Jesus Christ never approved.

Jesus called those things traditions of men.

Jesus simply summarized his ministry and Christian traditions in one sentence. Love your God with all your heart and Love your neighbour as Yourself.

Do to your fellow man what you wish done to you.

The words of sinner are like filthy rag before God. You don't claim you know God more than others. God said I am the one who sees the heart and conscience of men.

It is God who knows and not you. stop ascribing to yourself the position of God.

Let me add some more, so these overzealous christians who thinks they are holy and live By the standard of a book and God that condones RAPE, KILLINGS of INFANTS, INCEST AND SLAVERY.....A GOD THAT REEKS OF HATRED AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GREATEST GENOCIDE IN THE BIBLE....

Genesis 19:30-38......A book and God that condones INCEST.

30 Lot and his two daughters left Zoar and settled in the mountains, for he was afraid to stay in Zoar. He and his two daughters lived in a cave. 31 One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Our father is old, and there is no man around here to give us children—as is the custom all over the earth. 32 Let’s get our father to drink wine and then sleep with him and preserve our family line through our father.”

33 That night they got their father to drink wine, and the older daughter went in and slept with him. He was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.

34 The next day the older daughter said to the younger, “Last night I slept with my father. Let’s get him to drink wine again tonight, and you go in and sleep with him so we can preserve our family line through our father.” 35 So they got their father to drink wine that night also, and the younger daughter went in and slept with him. Again he was not aware of it when she lay down or when she got up.



Genesis 19:8.....a book that condones RAPE and MOLESTATION. a book that prefers you to protect strangers and give your girls out to be RAPED.
Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don't do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof."

danyero:
What is loving about a god who kills babies and children, condones slavery and rape, and creates a place of eternal torture?

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.
(Exodus 21:7-11)

You may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.
Leviticus 25:44-46

If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.
(Deuteronomy 22:28-29)

If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die.
Deuteronomy 21:18-21

More angry
They warred against Midian, as the Lord commanded Moses, and killed every male. They killed the kings of Midian with the rest of their slain, Evi, Rekem, Zur, Hur, and Reba, the five kings of Midian. And they also killed Balaam the son of Beor with the sword. And the people of Israel took captive the women of Midian and their little ones, and they took as plunder all their cattle, their flocks, and all their goods. All their cities in the places where they lived, and all their encampments, they burned with fire, and took all the spoil and all the plunder, both of man and of beast.

Of course they're not. Being born into a christian family doesn't make you a a christian. Being baptized as an infant into the 'christian Faith' too doesn't make you born again or christian either

Hey there.

You're exactly right. We ought to be cautious among unbelievers. We must treat them with love and compassion but we are not to put ourselves in spiritual or physical danger from them when we don't need to.
