  • Religion shouldn't enter into the picture/equation, at all. Individuals must EARN trust, based on their previous actions. +5
  • No, because some Christians are not true Christians. Some are wolves in sheep's clothing.
  • Not at all. Trust must be earned. Simply being a believer and/or follower has no, or very little impact on you relationsips with other people and their trust for you.
  • No, nor their priests or preachers. Every prison in the land has Christian chapels with regular attendance.
  • Not hardly! :-D +5
  • No one can be trusted based on anything. In a society where people are greedy and power hungry, no.
  • No one can be trusted based solely on the fact that they are anything at all.
  • No way. There are christian murders, promise-breaking christian, and other christians that are untrust worthy. Don't get me wrong there are possibly more trustworthy christians than untrustworthy ones. I don't mean to sound mean, though.
  • There is both good and bad in every category of person you can come up with, even in categories based on religion. So unfortunately, no one can be trusted at face value regardless of their (religious) background. The actions of a person will determine how well they can be trusted.
  • Short answer, no. I would't trust anyone solely on one aspect of their life. For me, trust is gained over a period of time.

  • Trusted in what way? I had a Christian neighbor that I would trust with my money or my children, but she could never remember to return the books I would lend her, so I could not trust her with my books.
  • Absolutely not! There are many people out there who use claiming to be a Christian as a cover for nefarious deeds. They may not believe in Christ at all and may have no intention of obeying Him, but they know that many people will trust them if they just say the are Christian. You shouldn't accept that a person is a Christian except on evidence that they are actually following Christ. You should also understand that Christians aren't perfect and that most of us still fall short and sin often. The test is whether we repent, turn from our sins and follow Christ once again. There is a reason that Christ said that we should bear no mark of our Christianity except our love. A true Christian should be easily recognizable by their behavior and their love for others. They shouldn't need a fish on their car, a cross around their neck or a tattoo for others to recognize them. They shouldn't even need to profess it. You should know them by their love. And that is the basis on which you should trust them.
  • Hell no ! It seems to ne that way too many christians manage to find a religious excuse to cheat and treat others badly. They have done so for centuries.
  • I would consider doing so to be a bad idea. Christians are always (and I mean always) the first people to do things that Jesus would likely disapprove of (like surprise you with buttsecks).
  • No, there are good and evil people of all religions.
  • I'm a Christian and even i would say no. Not everybody is worthy of trust.
  • NO! Christian is a word like every other word. The true meaning of the word Christian means: "Someone that is Christ-like." If that person does not love as Christ, than they are not Christian. But, who can truly judge if someone is Christian? We are not perfect beings! All a person can do is "LOVE" as Christ loved. However, you can always pray, ask, and acknowledge God for answers. There are people that love as Christ love; they may be a disciple for Christ; and say, "Lord, Lord in their hearts, " and God is not in their hearts. The best answer to give you, is pray & ask God, and read the Word of God (bible). There are many answers that can be answered by reading the Bible; like any other book. Blessings
  • How does a person's religion play into trust? Of course they can't. A Christian is just as likely to not keep a secret. They murder people just as much as anyone else.
  • No. Nor can any other religion, race, gender, age, occupation or any other variable. Trust, for me, is based on morals, ethics, treatment of others, and general follow through.
  • Ironically enough, many xtians will immediately trust one, regardless. Depends upon what exactly they're being trusted to do. I trust most xtians will do everything they can to convert me to thier (pardon the term) way of thinking.
  • Being a Christian simply means someone believes that Jesus is the savior of mankind. It does not mean they are any more trustworthy than any other person.
  • Absoutley not, people are people whatever what religion..You can have a holy rollie Christian and can be a back stabber to you....NO..
  • trust that is given is trust that was earned! +3
  • I find Christians to me more trustworthy as a rule than non Christians but it would be foolish to trust someone on the basis of religion alone.
  • Nope, just look at other religions. They're like the Christians. Full of hypocrites. Better off trusting a Democrat. At least you KNOW they're a bunch of liars.
  • Never trust a Christian. They are always after donations or sex';)
  • No. Too many people wave about their alleged beliefs hypocritically, then go on to lie, cheat, and steal.
  • No, that's crazy! No-one can be trusted just because of their religion or non-religion.
  • No. Just like any other group, there are good Christians and there are bad Christians.
  • I don't think you can base trust on what a person's spititual beliefs are. Besides Christians are not the only faith that teaches right from wrong and trust.
  • Absolutely not and it's the same for any other section of society.
  • No man is without sin.. so just because people label themselves christian.. does not mean they are pure and without flaws. Not every christian shares the same ideas either.. a lot of people get confused because they expect christians to not sin.. do wrong.. etc. .when it will happen.. they are just mere men.. not God. God has nothing to do with religion
  • Actually I tend not to trust Christians. And that lack of trust is being borne out at the moment.
  • Sadly, no.
  • Nope, Most of the "Christians" that I know are hypocrites.
  • No. Many of them are utter hypocrites. Others have bizarre interpretations of Christian teachings. +5
  • No, many of them are hypocrites as others mentioned. In my religious views, many so-called Christians do not know what they are talking about, especially when it comes to their preachers who are in it for the money. Matthew 7:15 "Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."

      Learn it from Jesus: Matthew 11:29 "Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I Am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." https://www.adventist.org/en/
  • If your a true gullible fool! Sinning while not approved is quite rampant!
  • Heck no. I believe that every time I did business with someone who saw fit to announce to me that they were Christians ripped me off.
  • i dont think so cause they could be lying about that
