I am a strong believer..I don't go for religion as long as know what i believe in it doesn't threaten me at all. Going to the topic.. being nice isn't about being a Christian... some who proclaimed themselves as Christians aren't nice at all. "nice" shouldn't be generalize to all christian or non-christian.. it's a subjective matter.. People are unique in their own ways so you shouldn't try to categorize then as a whole between Christians and non-christian.. though i get your point in this.

yeah i agree with this.. i even have Muslim friends.. and they are even nicer compared to some of my friends who proclaimed themselves as Christians. Well, i am a Christian Yes...but in the end of the day you'll realize people are just who they are and it has nothing to do with being a Christian or not.. right?

It is a person by person thing. I wouldn't say that Christians tend to be nicer then other people. However their beliefs may influence their actions, as they should.
That being said I see some Christians do not act very Christ like towards other religions.

That being said, when Christ was walking the Earth he had a few things to say against the people practising the religion around him.

We, my wife and I, are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints aka Mormons. We reject some of the "traditional" ideas of "mainstream" Christianity such as hell being fire and brimstone, that only confessing Christ saves you (though we accept it as being a part of what needs to happen) and that God no longer calls prophets to lead His church on Earth to name a few.

Because of my belief in Christ and sincere desire to be like him I try to always be kind and respectful to all people. I am human and am not perfect so I still get angry, disappointed etc. Everything that everyone else suffers as well.

I don't think whether someones nice or not has nothing really to do with their religion. It depends on allot of things, that aren't necessarily tied to religion. Just like I don't think if someone is moral or not has any ties to religion.

Being religious might make them feel better about themselves though and may make it seem like they are happier and nicer as result, but that doesn't always mean that they are nice.

And in contrast someone who has been having a rough go at life might seem not as nice, but underneath that tough exterior are some of the nicest people to know.

In a way I guess I think it matters in what you think of what being nice is? Is simply being polite? Is it things they do to help others? Is it something else?

I personally may not seem all that nice to people at times, but do, or least think I try to respect everyone, which can be difficult at times when you find their beliefs or thoughts on certain matters to be contradictory to your own.

I grew up being around Christians and the only ones I ever saw were to busy judging what one wore, looking down on others because they didn't fulfill a set number of "Christian" like things. Egotistical and bigoted in my views.

Not necessarily. In fact the "nicest" people, as in polite, considerate and friendly, are homosexuals with no ties to any religion whatsoever. Also, many Christians are nice to Christians and very bitter and unkind to anyone else. I've been hated on a lot by certain Christians because I identify myself as agnostic.

In short religion and kindness do not correlate with each other.

You have to keep in mind that the vast majority of those that are raised christian don't even think about religion or spirituality most of the time. In those cases of course there isn't a lot of correlation between their religion and actions.

If you want to talk about the Christians who actively study and pursue the teachings, you are still going to get a mixed bag. The new testament teaches tolerance, but the actual ideology of Christianity is very intolerant. So you are going to have people that interpret that different ways with mixed results of how they treat others...

The fact that this topic was made, and this picture on 9gag came up the same day i find rather amusing. I really think it explains this clearly, and it doesn't apply to just Christians/Catholics, but people of most religions lol

To be honest just being of a certain religion doesn't mean shit when it comes to being nicer, whether they actually pursue their faith strongly or not. It really all comes down to the person, how they were raised, influenced, and how they choose to act.

All religions have been manipulated by Satan to separate (being separate is an illusion) us from each other and God.

Being Christian is not a pass...I've met two faced Christians that just have not been caught yet.

The most dangerous people on the planet, are people that think GOD is on their side...

So, you have to be christian to be nice? OK. If there was no religion our technology would be years advanced.
