I have to say that over the last 10 years I have really noticed a change in they way we as "christians" look at others. Maybe this has always been the case and I just notice it more but I have to tell you that it seems to me that we have become jugdemental of anyone who does not believe or believes but do things that we may not believe in such as ..babtism babies ..speaking in tongues ...ect.. But I have always been taught to love all people believer non believer to be an example of living with tolerance an understanding to love the sinner not the sin and that none of us are without sin and sin is sin in Gods eyes to not shune those of us who may not live accorrding to Gods word but to invite them into our lives to show them the way and pray that they to will come to christ. And some people to me that proclaim they are so firm in thier belief that they are living by the word seem to be the ones that have no tolerance no compassion for those who maybe be living in such ways as being Gay or living a life of promisuctiy even those who may be living together and not married yet or are getting divorced ect.. just go against our the core fact of being christians that none of us are free from sin.I dont of course believe that this applies to all christains but I think that this is why some of these people do not come to christ because fear of being persecuted from those of us who do believe or because they did have a bad church experience.Do any of you notice this more and do you think there is need for a movement in our country from the church to be more excepting of all people or do you think it's a fine line of tolerance leading to condoning sin??. And if so do any of you see this in yourself or in your church I am sure we are all guilty in one way or another so feel free to share.
