Some Christians make me cringe…I wonder why?

Some Christians want everyone to live under their rules, laws and regulations. They want everyone in society to behave like they do, keep biblical standards like they interpret them. Just like some Muslims want Syariah law in their countries. They want everyone to come under the same law they come under.

Some Christians want everyone to be judged the same way they will be judged – Jews, Buddhists (all streams), Taoists, Muslims, Hindus, animists, atheists, deists, etc. etc. etc.

Sounds like they want a theocracy.

They want laws of the land to suit them and not those they have deemed sinners. They can keep and obey all the laws of the land, therefore, everyone else should, too.

Christians forget they are living in mostly secular societies or they are minority and even if they are in the majority (as some Americans believe themselves to be), there is separation of church and state but like some Muslims, they want church to rule the state, like Syariah (masjid teaching) should rule the land.

In the same way, atheists want the laws of the land to suit them. So where once “Christians” were in the majority, they are now feeling the push back from non-Christians.

But, don’t get me wrong, I’m not an American Christian. I’m a Singaporean Christian, a majority of the ethnic Chinese race there but a minority in terms of my religious beliefs. Christians generally want to change things – people, society, the world. How they interpret that is of course different from group to group.

I am finding Christians there want things their way. I could say more but I’ll stop here for now.
