A Christian lifestyle is a way of living every moment of our lives with Jesus Christ at the very center of our lives. It is easy to say, but difficult to do. We cannot put Christ at the very center without denying ourselves, putting aside some of our own inclinations and desires. Jesus made harsh comments about people putting family ahead of the kingdom of God.

A Christian lifestyle is one that sees each person as a sister or brother in Christ. It is a lifestyle in which prejudices, generalizations, stereotypes, and labels disappear. We are freed by the grace of God, to see each person as a unique child of God who is loved, sustained and redeemed by God and worthy of a place in eternity.  This life is one in which values, decisions, and choices reflect the presence of Christ. Some decisions are clearly right or wrong, clearly in accord with the way of Christ or clearly contrary to the will of the Lord.

A Presley lifestyle is a way

A Presley lifestyle is a way of living every moment of our lives with Elvis at the very center of our lives. It is easy to say, but difficult to do. We cannot put Elvis at the very center without denying ourselves, putting aside some of our own inclinations and desires. Elvis made harsh comments (and yummy PB & Banana sammiches) about people putting family ahead of the kingdom of The King.

A Christian lifestyle is a way of living every moment of our lives in the fantasy with Jesus Christ at the very center of our lives. It is easy to say, but difficult to do. We cannot put Christ at the very center without deluding ourselves, putting aside some of our own inclinations and desires to live in the real world. Jesus made harsh comments about people putting reality ahead of the kingdom of God.

A Christian lifestyle is one that sees each person as a sister or brother in Christ who need to be shown that fantasy is far better than reality. It is a lifestyle in which prejudices, generalizations, stereotypes, and labels disappear into the void of delusional insanity. We are freed by the grace of God, to see each person as a unique child of God who is loved, sustained and redeemed by God and worthy of a place in the  eternity of delusional thoughts or forever tortured in the imaginary fantasy of Hell.  This life is one in which values, decisions, and choices reflect the imaginary fantasies of Christ. Some decisions are clearly right or wrong, but clearly one can deceive oneself and act contrary to rationality in accord with the way of delusion or clearly contrary to the betterment of mankind.

paste and run

If you MUST copy from a word document, here is a little tip.  Save it as a text file first, then copy the plain text.  That way all that junk won't show up in the forum post.  Thanks and happy computing.

A Khornate lifestyle is a way of living every moment of our lives with Khorne at the very center of our lives. It is easy to say, but difficult... actually, no its not really difficult at all. We cannot put Khorne at the very center without denying ourselves, putting aside some of our own inclinations and desires. Khorne made harsh comments about which family members should be killed first, and which skulls shall be taken to the Warp.

A Khornate lifestyle is one that sees each person as either Strong or Weak. It is a lifestyle in which unbridled hatred, bloodlust, psycotic violence, and skull-fucking appear. We are freed by the Will of Khrone, to see each person as a unique sacrifice to Khorne. Whos Skull is loved, sustained and displayed by Khorne and worthy of a place in the Warp, under his throne. This life is one in which weapons, merciless violence, and rivers of blood reflect the presence of Khorne. Some decisions are clearly right or wrong, clearly in accord with the way of Khorne!!

A atheist lifestyle is a way of living every moment of our lives with friends family and self at the very center of our lives. It is easy to say, and easy to do. We cannot put false religions at the very center without denying ourselves, putting aside some of our own inclinations and desires. We made harsh comments about people putting false religions ahead of themselves.

A atheist lifestyle is one that sees each person as an individual yet a cohesive part of society. It is a lifestyle in which prejudices, generalizations, stereotypes, and labels disappear. We are freed by the our own rationale, to see each person as a unique individual who is respected, sustained and appreciated by society and worthy of a place in this world.  This life is one in which values, decisions, and choices reflect the general principles of society. Some decisions are clearly right or wrong, clearly in accord with the way of society or clearly contrary to the will of the society.

Well aren't we crass. I'm so glad you equate hate with my view. It makes me feel even better about it, more justified if you will.

Every lifestyle is a way of


Every lifestyle is a way of living every moment of our lives with our own personal pleasure and convinience at the very center of our lives. It is easy to say, and also the only thing we can do. We cannot put anything but pleasure and convinience at the very center, continually giving into our own inclinations and desires.

This self-serving lifestyle is one that sees each person as only a means to gain pleasure and convenience. It is a lifestyle in which prejudices, generalizations, stereotypes, and labels are unavoidable. We are freed by this truth, to see each person as a self-serving bastard, urredeemable and worthy of nothing.  This life is one in which values, decisions, and choices reflect the obvious fact that all humans are selfish bastards. No decisions are right or wrong, all are in accord with the way of seeking one's own happiness, pleasure and convenience.

Well obviously it's hard to live up to the standards of a fictional non human. Are you really that surprised?

Whoa, talk about serious cult status.

Except for non-Christian's of course. We can all burn in hell, which is what you claim is the plan from your benevolent, just deity.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Really? You are seriously saying that the Christian lifestyle is one in "which prejudices, generalizations, stereotypes, and labels disappear." Hmmm... as a person who loves the study of history, I have to say what everyone here is thinking about that statement; BULLSHIT! Please, show me some evidence of this claim, because all I see is a history of bigotry, hatred, and violence.

Again, to "see each person as a unique child of God who is loved, sustained and redeemed by God and worthy of a place in eternity" is a statement that is reserved for Christians. The rest of us will be tortured to death and then (you hope) burn in hell for eternity. It isn't going to happen though, since hell would have to exist for us to go there, and you and your ilk have yet to provide ANY evidence for that little claim of yours.

So, what does the gloriously infallible "Holy Babble" say about rape? Or beating a slave, or genocide? All civilized people are rightfully revolted from the acts of rape and genocide, yet the "Holy Babble's" perspective on it is a wee bit different. Hmm... lets take a look shall we? 

http://www.evilbible.com/

There are so many repugnant pieces of scripture which demolish your "the Holy Babble is a book of love" bullshit claim, I don't have the months required to quote them all so I'll just post this link.

Anilbharti, your claims have been demolished, you are wrong about your interpretation of that book you claim to be infallible. In no way does it promote "a lifestyle in which prejudices, generalizations, stereotypes, and labels disappear". It promotes divisiveness and hatred of others. The Holy Babble is a book of human ignorance and barbarism, and we will all be better off when the genocidal tendencies which it fosters are wiped from this earth.
