It's because Christians are -- and should be -- held to a higher standard than the rest of society. If you profess to be a follower of Christ, then you've got to live by those teachings every day. Of course, that's an incredibly hard thing to do -- but you certainly can't just routinely go to church every Sunday and then act like an asshole the rest of the week. This is why I was at one point so disgusted with Christianity.
Then I realized I didn't have any hate for the religion, just the hypocrites whose actions didn't coincide with their beliefs.
Thats the hardest thing to do.....walking the walk. i mean, its a struggle everyday, but i try to do my best. not just in christianity, but probably in ALL religions. i will probably never live up to my own standards, but i'm cool with that because i know i atleast try......i'm sure each religion has its own ups and downs....its hard to keep the faith hanging around people from the huddle.......lol
