I am at a crossroads wondering if I should totally avoid christian forums altogether. I live in a really happy go lucky tolerant accepting christian environment and all around me things are peaceful and happy. I am really open minded towards other belief systems and have a really tolerant views Christianity has its flaws to and I am more than happy to mention its shortcomings as well as it's strengths and I think that upsets other people sometimes.
A few years back the only christians I interacted with were local ones and they are loving and kind to non Christians and very non judgemental. Viewing for the first time the gay or other belief hate threads was a disappointing shock to me and seeing some of the intolerance and condemnation of other ideologies by the minority is beginning to drive me from God as it's not what originally attracted me to the christian believers that were responsible for me becoming a Christian and I don't want to be influenced to become like that myself. I often wonder if there is something wrong with me because I don't hate gays.
I joined a couple of forums and saw much the same at both before this one (which is better) I just want to go back to a mental picture of Christians as kind loving gentle people with open arms for the unsaved. I am really thinking avoiding altogether forums, can you guys pray for me that I can find the answer.
thats not meant to offend anyone so please don't be guys it's just something I am struggling with.
