Religion that claims to follow the principles of Jesus in the Bible but instead promotes man made rigid dogma is personally repulsive to me. I have encountered Christians that spew hatred at anyone they dislike and they use some misquoted minor passage in the Bible to justify their extreme venom. These Christians are not fulfilling the great commission because they are driving people away from Christ by showing the hatred in their thoughts.
Political beliefs are a common way of expressing this type of religious hatred. I have friends that hate President Obama and other friends that hate President Bush. I suspect that actual violence would occur if they were trapped in a room together long enough. Provided no one was hurt, I might actually enjoy watching an encounter of that nature as long as I didn’t have to participate. I guess some Christians were born stupid and they plan to die that way while they drive people away from Christ during their lifetime.
