But Christianity is not a religion. It's a faith based on the idea of having a personal relationship with God.

Does it have a creed?
Does it purport to teach moral lessons?
Does it have a text that is considered divinely inspired and sacred?
Does it involve the worship of a supernatural being?
Does it involve getting together with other like-minded people for the purpose of such worship?
What more, exactly, do you require before admitting this is a religion?

Why try to escape the trappings of religion? Aren't these the same people who accuse atheism of being a religion? Please. tell me what you think a religion actually is, and then we can talk.

Oh my mistake! That is completly different!

Buddha was a disgusting human being. Why would anyone want to follow a filthy person like that?

"Christianity is not a religion."
It's not anything at all; Not even bullshit.

An abusive relationship with god, to be precise.
5/28/2008 4:53:48 PM
That, if anything is a religion.

If it involves scripture, it's a religion.

i have heard this one so often i am beginning to think there is more to this _mantra_ than meets the eye. i just don't know what.

@Po Chuck: That had better be sarcasm...
@lambslove: THAT'S WHAT ALL RELIGION IS!

Why the churchs? You don't need huge, overbuilt monoliths full of seats to have a personal relationship.
Christianity is an organized institution and meets ALL the requirements of RELIGION

Then please send in all the over-due taxes, as personal relationships and faiths are not tax exempt.

Which is a more than passable definition of what religion means.
2/8/2011 2:43:53 AM
That's exactly what a religion is you imbecile!

That's fine, personal relationships aren't protected by the first amendment. You can, however, have a restraining order....
2/8/2011 6:01:43 PM
I'd just love to hear your definition of religion, then.
2/8/2011 6:35:59 PM
...and that's what religon is. But Christianity still isn't one, right? Right?

Chapter and verse from the Bible that supports this "idea", please.
9/19/2011 11:01:07 AM
No more tax exemptions then.
