There seems to be alot of confusion on this board regarding Christianity. I see people posting about "Christians" who believe in an old earth. "Christians" who believe in Evolution. "Christians" who believe the Bible has mistakes in it, etc.
This is what's called Counterfeit Christianity. There is no way you can call yourself a Christian and accept Darwin's theory of Evolution when the Bible is perfectly clear that there was no Evolution. No excuses whatsoever. Counterfeit Christians say Genesis shouldn't be taken literally, but they give no reason as to why we shouldn't take it literally!
So I want to make clear what the differences are between True Christians and Counterfeit Christians:
True Christians believe in the Bible. ALL of it.
True Christians are not sympathetic towards other belief systems. A true Christian cannot say that another religion "may lead to God." I do not like Muslims, but I do like the Jews. Although I do not respect Judaism (because it is false and does not lead to salvation), I do respect the Jews because of what the Bible teaches, and because of the importance of Israel in God's plan. The Jews have also been strongly oppressed, therefore true Christians are also proud supporters of Israel (like myself).
True Christians believe in a young earth, and creationism.
True Christians believe in the Trinity doctrine, while many counterfeit Christians reject it.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask!

I thought true Christians followed the teachings of Jesus which didn't cover any of this shit.

Who the fuck are you to say what a true christian is?

True Christians act, believe and think just like me!

Well, then... I guess I'm proud to be a counterfeit Christian because I actually care about people.

Fundies are the real counterfeit Christians - they ignore the New Testament and preach all the hate-filled garbage/fiction of the Old Testament. And they even warp that to suit their aims!

Great! Tell other people what they believe!

If I was a Christian, I'd want to disregard Genesis, too.

And no true Christians eat sugar on their porridge.

Isn't this belief in the Bible being the literal truth a rather new phenomenon?
Doesn't the Bible say "Judge not, lest ye be judged"? And, if it's in the Bible, you believe in it, right?
Camille, dear, you are not the one who get to judge what is and what isn't a True Christian. Christians believe in the salvation through Jesus Christ. That might be the only common thing between all the different Christian denominations and cults. It's also a personal thing; if an individual feels in his/her heart that s/he is a Christian, then s/he is a Christian. You don't have the authority to throw them out of Christianity.
The Bible is a newer edition of the Torah and the Koran is a newer edition of the Bible. So if you respect the Jews because of what the Bible teaches, then you also have to respect the Muslims, because their Koran is very similar to your Bible. The Koran even mentions Jesus, which the Torah does not.
