If there was no such thing as Christianity...
- I would have to appreciate books simply for the good writing.
- I‘d have to socialize with my community rather than the people in my church.
- I’d have to use common sense and wisdom rather than using fleeces and ‘sensings’ to make decisions. So, I wouldn’t have had to get so stressed about missing God’s will if I chose to buy that red car instead of that blue one.
- I wouldn’t be able to watch a movie looking for anti-Christian themes and stuff.
- I’d have no option but to enjoy music simply for the music, not for the message or for the worship experience.
- I would have to love my family, my relatives more than my church family.
- If I couldn’t be a Christian, I couldn’t call a non-Christian my enemy, because I would be one of them myself.
- I wouldn’t feel compelled to turn my eyes away from the topless statue, ‘Venus’, Instead, I would feel compelled to admire its artistic beauty and grace.
- I would not have religious reasons to think I am above the guy I work with.
- I wouldn’t pretend that I don’t like beer.
- I couldn’t have sentimental reasons to favor Israel over the Arabs and would have to let my opinion on that issue be based on what is fair.
- I couldn’t break fellowship with another Christian who doesn’t agree with my view on doctrine.
- I’d have no choice but to give due consideration to the arguments of scientists.
- I would dress up the kids for Halloween thinking only of the fun of it all.
- The crusades - the ‘Holy’ wars, would not have happened.
- People wouldn’t make a fuss about those Harry Potter books.
- I couldn’t say that the devil made me do it.
If Jesus would really be a ‘good’ Christian by today’s standards of what a Christian is supposed to be like. Maybe somebody would tell him to repent.
