Unless you accept Christ in your heart as your personal savior, Christians believe you are going to hell. That is written in the Bible, which is supposed to be God's word. Does that sound nice? Or tolerant? So every person that ever lived, in the history of the world, regardless of wether they were born before Christ or if they lived in an area where Christ's word hadn't spread, is going to burn in extreme agony for eternity . That's not even a little nice!

i dont think its very nice when religions try to push their beliefs on you and scare you into believing what they believe, for example, church signs that say " stop drop and roll wont work in hell".

The church has always acted on fear and oppression. Oppression not so much anymore, but fear is something they'll never abandon. Nothing more profitable than people afraid of going to hell.

Always. And I mean always, look at churches as businesses.

i Agree...

TrULLy a Nice or Good PerSon are Not beCause of his or her reLigiOn. SureLy it is hOw he or she been up brOught by his or her parent.
Parent or Parents is the first basis of coMformity between what is gOod and bad. Then the Later part is your surroUndings or fActOrs that infLuence you in the sOciety like your friends, classmate, teaChers, the meDia like your favOrite shOws and Others.

Not aLL CHristiaN are Nice in generAL hOwever they are expected to be...and same gOes to aLL of Us...though we may be aNNoyed by someOne or we are having a BAD day But befOre we speAk and aCt we mUst be civiL and sensible if we make a mistake or was rude to sOmeOne speciaLLy to a mere stRanger on the street uPon reALizing it...we mUst do what is expected of us...aPpOLogize and give a heLping Hand.

Just be CarefuL for NOT ALL NICE peOpLe are NICE and Not aLL peOPLe that needs HELp reALLy needs heLp just what i have learned when i conducted a business trip to Manila, Philippines

God does not want you to follow any religion. He wants you to follow you own path.

No. Ethical, nice people happen wherever and religion has nothing to do with it. Especially one as closed minded as Christianity.

I've never met a Jainist, but given their beliefs and small numbers, I'll bet they're nice folk.

The bible says we are saved by faith through grace, a lot of Christians will respond to this in kind and want to lift up people rather than tearing them down with varying succuss. As a lot of Christians understand that we are not saved by doing good things but rather what God has done for us you may find Christains not as reliably nice to you because when they are nice to you its because they want to be, rather than because their afterlife depends on 'being good' as many other religions. Remember, were ALL human, everybody makes mistakes and has much to learn. God bless

It all depends on the family the person they grew up in. But traditional Christians that are very relegious do have a tendency of being kinder people. but they dont have as much fun
