Is Christianity dying because all it has is hatred, lies, threats and insults?

    That and its inability to produce any evidence for its god.

    No.  In fact, Christianity is actually growing worldwide, although it's relevance to life has declined in the West.

    That typifies the modern American Christian, who are influenced by hate spewing evangelists. REAL Christians in plenty around the world are more into 'love thy neighbor' mentality.

    "Love your neighbor as yourself."  I wonder where that came from.

    Could you give us an example of what you mean.  Christianity isn't dying - it cannot ever die because it's a person - Jesus Christ the living Saviour and Creator of this world and universe and everything and everyone in it.  He created all things for Himself and without Him, nothing was created that has been created  (John 1: 1 - 3).

    If people act with hatred and lies and threats and insults towards you - they are certainly not Christians.

    So somehow you have got the wrong impression of Christianity.  God is pure LOVE and it's not His will that anyone perish but that all should come to repentance and be saved.

    He has laid out what we must do to be saved.  If we refuse to receive Jesus Christ who is the only Saviour - then yes, our end will be Hell, but that's NOT what God wants for you.

    The warnings are only because God loves us and does NOT want anyone to end up in Hell.  We are all sinners, so of course Hell is where we are headed, but God will willingly rescue you - as He has me, and then there will be no threat of Hell over you, but everlasting LIFE in heaven with Him.

    It's love that God Himself came down to earth and died on the cross for us all.

    Maybe some people have misrepresented a loving God and made Him sound like an ogre - but He's not.  He is waiting to save you and have a relationship with you.  

    However, He won't force you of course.  If you prefer to pay for your own sins in Hell in eternity - that's your choice because He has given everyone free will.

    That's why He says, "Choose you this day whom you will serve"  If you want to serve yourself and Satan, that's unfortunate because Hell will be your destiny since God cannot save those who will not repent and come to Jesus Christ the only Saviour.

    There is no other name under heaven given amongst men whereby we must be saved, so you must come to Jesus if you want salvation - but that's not hate - it's love.

    1. Christianity isn't dying.

    2. Christianity offers much more than hatred, lies, threats and insults.

    3. The Christians you interact with here are loud mouth extremists who don't seem to understand that their behavior is wrong. They don't represent the faith. Just themselves.
