  • It should be true. Not only for Christians.
  • Christians are human and have the same problems as anyone else. I try to have a good heart and understanding of others, BUT sometimes you have to stick up for yourself or loved ones. And that throws that peaceful day out the window!.....LOL
  • I'm not a Christian, but I think that it's wrong to expect Christians (or anybody else) to be perfect. Human beings are just human... we all lose track of our values sometimes, or act reactively when angry, or get caught up in justifying behavior that isn't justifiable. Christians, like members of all honest religions, should be trying to steadily refine and develop their compassion, wisdom, and self-restraint. That process continues for a lifetime, and during that lifetime there will be plenty of missteps, backtracking, re-committing, and successes. A simple blanket "you should all be THIS way" isn't helpful, it just sets up the game for judging others and misunderstanding. There used to be a Christian bumper sticker which said "Christians aren't perfect, just forgiven". That's the basic spirit.
  • I always thought that to be a Christian is try to to emulate Jesus. In my opinion, Christians who don't try to live as Jesus lived are Christians in name only.
  • I don't believe that, they're humans just as everyone else. Without mentioning all the strife, death and war that constructs the majority of past Christian history. It's just like anyone else with beliefs, and that Christianity is one of the most dominant religions on Earth doesn't make their values any more valid then other people.
  • No such animal exists Christian or otherwise, not even in the vatican.
  • Yes, unless the situation warrants that I not be. And I'm an atheist.
  • Personally I don't think that if you are a christian who argues and gets angry is a bad christian. You could have a 'perfect' christian who never showed any anger but yet was snooty or obsessed with grades or will feel above others and yet claim to be a christian. I think it is normal to show anger and be a christian. After all, none of us are perfect so we shouldn't pretend to be! as for the considerate question (yes there's more form me!) I do believe in being kind and considerate to other yes but I don't believe that you should let other's walk all over you. I am a young christian by the way! Sorry if it was a bit long lol Keep smilin :)
  • Yes, the Golden Rule= Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
  • I believe in being loving, kind, peaceful and considerate, and I'm a godless atheist. Striving to be the best possible person is not only for Christians.
  • I am not perfect and will fly off the handle at a lot of stuff, plus I believe in the concept of Righteous Indignation. Even Jesus turned over tables in the Temple.
  • I am a Christian, and I'm certainly not perfect. But that's because no one is. Other than Jesus or Mary, no one has lived his or her full life without fighting. It can't be done. It's against our human nature. :)
  • I believe in being kind and helpful to all..whether Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Atheist, whatever..all religions are equal in my eyes, and good to the extent that their practioners are kind and helpful to all. :) The moment someone thinks he/she is "better" than another or that others are "less than", then such a person cannot possibly be a devout anything because I don't know of any religion that makes it ok to bash others, insult others or try to harm others because of their beliefs! :)
  • If that's how you define 'true, peaceful Christians', then sure; absolutely... But it would therefore mean that 'true, peaceful Christians' would be pretty much non-existent, given that everyone argues about 'something' at some point in their life... I imagine it would be impossible to live in society without arguing about something eventually : P Also, I'm never really sure what people mean when they ask whether or not you 'believe' in a verb... If you mean to ask whether or not I 'think it is good' to be loving, kind, peaceful, and considerate then yes, because that is how the words are defined.
  • I don't believe there are any TRUE Christians on this planet. I do believe in the second question though!
  • A true "peaceful christian would never fight, bash, or talk badly about others, is loving and kind, and yes very considerate and puts others first. Dont get the regular "christain" mixed up with the "real christain" there are some people who fake it and put on a show and others are really actually christain. Christain can mean "christ like" in other words "wut would jesus do?" so just becasue they say they are christain doesnt mean they actually are they may be hypocrits!!! but anyhow i kno that true christain are loving kind, and put others first because my dad is one of them. hes very devoted to god and never loses his temper. he always puts others first. (to the point were i have to get after him sometimes for people taking advantage of him!) i kno this because when i was a teenager i light up some weed right infront of him (i was a wild child) and all he did was tell me to put it out (in a firm but calm way) and he took me for a drive and just talked to me about it. hes just all around a loving kind guy. i can not even think of anything that he did that was irational or mean. He treats my mom like gold (even when she whines at him!)i have not heard him put anyone down or talk negitively in that matter ever!! ALL I CAN SAY IS there are some people out there that say they are christains and try to act the part but deep down inside they are rotten and put others down. they are there for self gratitude and to show others that "m better than you cuz i am a christian". THOSE KIND OF PEOPLE ARE NOT CHRISTAIN!! usually the ones who say they are could be just sayng it for slef gratitude. the real loving christains dont say that......they show it thru their actions
  • Being a christian is to strive for perfection. The bible says in Philippians 3:14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. This is an on going process.
  • nope my family is definitely a true christian family, and we have gotten into many a great argument and i've been bashed quite a few times. they're still amazing loving kind and peaceful people on the whole, but i admit, i've done something that nobody in my family is about to do, and that's leaving the church, and i think i've shaken them. =/ that makes them no less christian, only human
  • If one is enabled by the power of God to live at peace with all men, he is truly blessed. Mat 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
  • Yes. The religious are defined as those who are conscientiously faithful to higher values. They value vows of obedience. They are the people who accept some norms of behaviour. They will be least inclined to argue or fight most of the time.
  • If they follow the example of Jesus Christ.
  • Hi Royal, the Lord says to be humble and meek...so yes it is true that a true Christian should have these attributes. We are called to be like the family of Nazareth (Mary, Joseph and Jesus), and aside from believing in One God, this is God's second commandment; To love others!
  • Not to argue, not to fight or to bash anyone are not qualities relegated only to Christians. Now, one might exercise reastrain from doing those things because one might have wholeheartly embrace a doctrine-Christianity in this case-underlying those principles. But the same restrain can be exercise by anyone guided by one's own sense of right and wrong without the need to adhere to any doctrine. In other words, religion has never been the underpinning for moral consciousness. For if that were true, religion would not have a dark side. Peace!
  • Yes, we are suppose to to be treating oneanother with respect and kindness and showing forth the love of Christ, and making peace. We are also suppose to bear with oneanother, and have the fruits of the Spirit. I always remember the Bible saying: Love your enemies,Bless those who curse you, do good good to those who hate you, and pray for those who despitefully use you. This is how Christ wants us to be toward oneanother, but we are not perfect, and we are going to make mistakes. And it's ok to get upset about some things. The bible says, "be angry and sin not".
  • Everywhere St. Paul went, they had a riot. He didn't fight or bash, but he did present arguments.
  • Being Christian means doing one's best to be like Christ. But we are all of us human, and we stuff up with surprising regularity. A "True" Christian recognises their faults and failings, and works hard to rectify them. "Lead us not into temptation" is a very poignant line of the Lord's prayer. Every day we are trialled with temptations, and not just in a religious sense. One of the main theme's of the Gospels and Christian doctrine is the forgiving nature of God. Humility and being humble allows a Christian to accept their faults. Ego, anger, self righteousness and the like only stop ourselves from being better. In short, it's not what a Christian does that makes them Christian, it's what they are going to do.
  • That's the way I interpret it. I'm not Christian, but yes, I try to be as kind and compassionate to everyone as is possible. Of course, I'm human, so sometimes I slip up, but it is a general principle I do my best to follow.
  • A true Christian would follow the model that Jesus set for them and be peaceful and not fight, be loving and respectful of everyone. The only difference being we aren't perfect and he was so we can only do our best, though not using our imperfections as an excuse to behave wrongly.
  • I am a Roman Catholic thus a Christian, but Christians have their issues and fight quite a bit. I believe in getting along with everyone no matter what their color or creed. What I do to avoid problems is what my father always said: Never discuss religion, politics and family. This little rule keeps you on the save side always. Regards
  • i believe they do that behind your back...
  • I do up to a point, after they go over the line I will argue. But it takes alot to get me to fight or bash.
  • That's not true and yes.
  • yep, but a true, peaceful, kind,loving, considerate and KNOWLEDGEABLE Christian also knows HE WON'T GO TO HEAVEN BY HISSELF, HE HAS TO TAKE OTHERS, BRING OTHERS TO THE LORD, whether by example or helping or spreading the WORD...witnessing and example is a Christian duty . a true Christain cannot worry just about their own salvation....how SELFISH is that?
  • yes, because they are all in agreement. I believe it and i practice it. but sometimes, i lose control and say darn and oh shoot, and get generally pissed off.
  • No one is perfect, but a true Christian should try to emulate Jesus as much as possible, and that means that you should be loving, kind, peaceful and considerate to others.
  • Christians are not yet perfect. Because they have been forgiven, then Christ is slowly transforming their minds. So they SHOULD be less willing to argue fight or bash anyone. I believe in being loving,kind, peaceful and considerate to others, but I am a work in progress. I hope those around me forgive me for my failings as I forgive them theirs.
  • It is true that they are supposed to be that way... But let me tell you something. I have been hurt more in my life by supposed "Good" church going Christians than I have ever been hurt by anyone else who was clueless and honestly didn't know better. "To whom much is given, much is required." It is simply a shame that I had to stop going to church... because there were too many Christians there.
  • The intention of this reality is not peace, but division and competition.
