  • I think their wasting their lives because they think there's an invisible man who can read your thoughts and is watching everyone every second. And praise him and use their Sunday morning gouing to a building with others and listening to a man talk about him. Just an opinion.
  • Jesus did not save you. You saved yourself. Give yourself some credit, man.
  • That's very nice, now could you kindly SHUT THE F**K UP ALREADY ABOUT IT!!! Sheesh!
  • to the first 3 answers: are you guys SO bored that you can't say nothing at all, if you can't say anything nice? look at yourselves! take a deep breath and get a grip and maybe feel a little shame.
  • Because people in general assume all kinds of things about all kinds of people..christians are not exempt to this...
  • All humans should have something to believe in. Congratulations in your wish to be Happy.
  • Glad you're happy. But did you ever think there might be more than the two alternaltives you've experienced?
  • If you've found something that gives you peace and a sense of purpose in your life, then that's fantastic!
  • i didn't know people assumed Christians were bored or wasting their lives. congratulations on your salvation.
  • Religious people who believe in God are much happier than people out searching for things of this world. I would go so far as to say people who live for this world are downright miserable. I say well done to you sir and congratulations.
  • In what way are you happier? What is it about your life that is less miserable?
  • They assume you're wasting your life because you try so hard not to sin when there probably is no god, sorry.
  • Ignorance is bliss. Congratulations.
  • It's great that you're happy. I do wonder why you're online with a computer and the Internet, if you have no desire for the things of this world?
  • Of course you are happier. You can hide behind your religion and trash others. It is never YOUR fault, after all, THEY are the sinners. Your version of Christianity is the ultimate enabler.
  • Why do you assume people assume that?
  • Bored - Meh, that's not necessarily true. Yes, being a staunch Christian bored me to tears and anger, but plenty of other people I knew used that open time to gossip, backbite, and scam unsuspecting business associates, and they were never bored. Wasting their lives - Well, that's a matter of perspective. Personally, I think living a life according to rules based on a book that was compiled at the behest of a government that failed over a thousand years ago is pretty wasteful. But hey, if you're happy, go for it. Who am I to stop you?
  • I don't make that assumption. The more time you spend worshiping your deity and the less time you spend on AB, the less time you'll have to spend getting the Heavenly Loyalty Audit at the Pearly Gates. ;) Off with you now, and spend the rest of your life praying for forgiveness and Divine Admittance! :)
  • I knew it was you before I even saw the author of this question. It's because many of us have been dedicated christians for years and know from experience that is was a miserable time. Many of us need more than simple indoctrination. It is obvious to many of us that the bible is a hoax. Most of the christians I know are miserable. They don't solve their own problems or advance in life because they are constantly praying and waiting for an imaginary God to help them. They don't have any concern for themselves and constantly ask God where and what they should be doing. They are not really living their lives. They love people who hurt them over and over again instead of finding like minded people to share their life with. I don't know a single christian who has been able to fulfill their goals in life. One day you will crash, and you will crash very hard. I know your type. I have seen it every time. It's not just because you are a christian, but because you are so high up in the clouds of fantasy. One day reality will set in. You have rejected life while waiting for death. You have taught yourself to do so by believing that this life is nothing and that real life is after death. You are very good at tricking your mind into believing this, but one day you will wake up and I hope it will be an easy transition, not a trip to the mental hospital. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, one day you will know without a doubt that he is not real, but you will probably have a hard time accepting that reality.
  • Knowing Jesus and having him in my life has made it very exciting and fulfilling! I don't know why anyone would think that. Maybe they just don't know him yet. Who cares what others think? I'm glad it's working for you too.
  • Most people assume that Christianity is about rules. I grew up with parents who would say, "Do you think God wants you to behave that way," etc. My dad used to be a pastor, and expects his children to be nearly perfect because we accepted Christ young. He also thinks he can keep us from making mistakes. My parents are very conservative and have pulled the Christian card (even though they do not realize it because they expect us to be 'Christlike' at all times and treat us very differently than others) on me too many times. I am 19 and they are very controlling with certain parts of my life. I came to college and got involved with Intervarsity ( a Christian organization that does not believe that Christianity is a bunch of rules), and realized that Christ came to make me free and that the crap I recieved from them is not what Jesus was talking about. I am glad that you have found freedom in Christ also. I am happy because I know God will love me and accept me no matter what lifestyle I choose, and that my parents should too, as long as I am responsible and moral and honoring God, which does not equal being God. I believe there are good things in this world, and advise you to be in this world but not of it, instead of being of the world and not in it."
  • I am a Christian, and in my experience, people think we are too strict, hypocritical, nutty, beyond hope, intolerant, and things like that. I think it is because many people claim to be Christians, but are really not deep down. I think they give Christians a bad name, and there are so many of them, which is unfortunate and quite sad really. Those who have that opinion on us don't realize what they're missing out on, and it's up to us to change that opinion. The way to do that is by spreading the Word. Also, sorry that you're getting answers that are not helpful or that show you're not being taken seriously. I hope you get a few more serious answers.
  • I have known christians that are quite happy and I have known non-believers that are unhappy. I expect the ratio of more happyness balances towards the non-believers and ones that don't really practice their religion. I think it would be hard to be happy if you go to church, weekly, and have some guy talk for an hour telling you that you're likely to go to hell and you'll be happier after you're dead. Anyway, I'm glad you're happy. The best way to stay that way is to keep your "conversion" to yourself and prevent these guys from trashing you and your beliefs. As far as I'm concerned, I think it is great that you found a philosophy that you can live with and it helps you to be happy.
