Why Are Christians Always Trying To Convert You?

Why Cant Y'all Respect Others?

Like you know someone, yall yarn and stuff, and the person is not even religious oh, they are just christians by default, but whenever the topic comes up, they never fail to try and convince u that jesus was the son of god/is god and that he died for “our” sins. So basically being born again or being holy and sin free is not the goal, they just want you to go against your beliefs and admit that jesus is god, then when u say ok I believe hes god and the son of god, they walk away feeling accomplished, but wait! does that mean I automatically go to heaven now? I guess ill go stab a guy but have it at the back of my mind that jesus is god.

Don’t you just hate it when someone you know, hang out with and do real crazy, unimaginable things with assume or try to tell you that youre going to hell and they are only trying to save you by making you believe that jesus is not a prophet but the son of god yet they lead the same “sinful” life as you do, the only difference is their belief. And then they try to say well muhammed is not the answer its jesus. I'm like wtf said i worship muhammed? Hes a prophet just like jesus, if you don’t believe me then don’t ask me.

Same thing with all those deeper life and christians always going door to door bleeping up my meal or Indecency flick! Is that a sign that I shouldn’t be eating or touching myself? Is someone up there trying to call me fat?! You don’t see muslims or babalawos at your doorstep do you. Do you and respect other ppls beliefs, its not your duty to bring anyone with you to heaven because them people be acting like christianity is a referral thing like “I really need you to come with me to church please I pray for you everyday, because if you don’t become a christian, I don’t get enough points to enter heaven, and bring your sister too”

When I was young, I used to think christianity was a cult, them people walking around with pamphlets used to scare the chit out of me, there was this particular dude by the mountain of fire church, always waiting for me when im walking back from school. I used to take off my shoes and run whenever I got to the area and he would run after me while his fellow brothers hailed him “catch her catch her” any passerby would think I was the demon and they were trying cure me or something.

You people should take your time oh, however way I choose to live my life is between me and my God, I don’t need any middle man neither muhammed nor jesus to get to God period.

Upbringing matters a lot. This is the kind of social misfit you get when you neglect a slow baby and watch her grow into an uncultured, uncouth and unrefined young lady.

The rest of you idiots yarnin dust need to read my disclaimer, as long as this is my thread, only my opinion matters

If you have a smart Bottom comment to make, open your thread or start a blog

This is a WHY thread, answer it with a BECAUSE without questioning my choice, if you lack comprehension skills, keep on barking

On the other hand, I commend the intelligent few that have attempted to explain why, im not yet satisfied with the answers yet but im sure with a few more comments, ill be able to filter through the trash and find my answer cos more than half of the ppl in this thread are alarmingly illiterate

It's rather strange that we easily divide society by the manner of worship ie. Christian, Muslim etc instead of recognising that we all believe and worship the same Creator.

If I were to ask you "Do you believe in One God ?" Your answer will surely be "Yes" or even "Of Course"

So why do we then separate This One God into several ?

Your acceptance of One God, automatically makes you a Christian and also is the criterion for becoming a Muslim.

Another concern of mine is the Word God is English and The word Allah is Arabic, so obviously we Nigerians must accept that the Word Oludumare in Yoruba is equally important to us as well as Igbo and Hausa words too.

All of the issues and concerns we have are all borne out of language and translation and more importantly acceptance, so don't lose sleep over issues of religious differences.

As the saying goes, "You can't win an argument with a fool, because he has lots of experience at being foolish and will win by experience(sic)"

Enjoy

i do not expect you to have respect for other peoples religions or choices afterall you dont even respect urs.

i will not force my religion down anyone's throat, so no one should force his down mine, i will not preach to you so dont preach  to me, i will never insult ur god so dont ever insult mine, if i do insult ur god i will accept watever you choose to do to me afterall i made the choice. now if you insult mine it should be my choice to punish you however i want to.

isn't this rule just simple enuf for all of us?

The person who started this thread is only looking for attention.

From the tone of her responses so far, one cannot be fooled that she is just a jive turkey.

Why did she insult Bolex?

PLEASE, WHEN YOU ARE ONLINE, TRY TO HAVE SOME COMPANY MANNERS.

If you see or meet many members of Nairaland in flesh and blood, you would be to intimidated to even talk to them. So, don't abuse the privilege given to you to exercise your freedom of speech and turn it into freedom of abuse.

I have ignored Nigerian forums until I joined Nairaland, because I respect Seun. But if people who lack the discipline for public decorum come online to insult others, they should be disciplined. Because, we don't want another "Papermoon" here.

There are many members of Nairaland who are not Nigerians and they are harassed and embarrassed by such insolent characters or fringe elements.

I invite my buddies from America, Europe, Australia and Asia to visit Nairaland and they have been doing so. And I want us to show that we are not vagabonds online. We cannot continue to tolerate any pubic nuisance to rubbish the image of Nigeria in the global village. Because, one of the reasons why I am online is to redeem the battered image of Nigeria.

PLEASE, NO INSOLENCE HERE.

God bless you.    

N.B:

A public nuisance is an interference with the common right of the general public or an indefinite number of persons; an unreasonable interference with the health, safety, peace, or comfort of the community.

Must everyone become a christian? The most annoying thing is even if you tell them you are a muslim, they still want to preach to you? That is really annoying as if Islam is not a religion. The truth is of all religious riots that is happening all over the world, christian are always behind it which the other religion try to retaliate. The christians mostly pretends what they do to have occassioned retaliation by the other religion was normal. See for instance what the guy above just said, that if you go to a Deeper life church and you insult their religion, they will pray for you, why must a right sensing person who respect his religion insult other people's religion? But because christian had been imbibing the culture of insulting other people's religion, that is why they will preach to you at any slightest opportunity irrespective of the religion you belong to. To me, once someone said he is muslim, i want to believe they should take it that way, by trying to preach further against his will is totalling insulting to that person religion it is like saying, yes we know you are a muslim, but christianity is better than your religion. That is wicked!

,,,,,,,so it all balls down to the fact that I believe u have a personal bias against christians or what they believe,,,,, your comparison of christianity to Islam also attests to the above claims that I just made,,,,,,but what u probably don't know is that with islam u probably would have been blown up before u open your stinking mouth to reject Allah,,,,,,,,,if u doubt it,,,,,,,just try this,,,,,,,Go to a deeper life church and tell them how much u hate their God and their faith,,,,,,,,or u can go to a mosque in Zamfara state and say the same thing about Allah and his irks, and see what will happen,,,,,,,matter of fact am going to tell,,,,,,,,in one of the places they will pray for u,,,,,,,,,,in the other place u will either have your head cut off or u will be blown to pieces before u can say "hey",,,,,,,,,,,Thank your God u live in a christian neigbourhood, and u have people that will pray for u when u insult their faith like u did here rather than blow u and your family to mecca,,,,,,,so next time u want to make a comparison to christians,,,,please get a better opponent and stop insulting and degrading us for pete's sake!!!!!!!!

the point is wether you like it or not, you are far more biased than miss eniola. and you obviously dont know poo.

By comparison if you can ever compare that is, muslims don't force you to worship their god, but they refuse to have you insult him. and to a church or mosque why would anybody wanna go in just to insult your god? what you are insinuating is impossible and senseless, if i have to go into a mosque in zamfara only to insult the god they worship, comon man why should they let me out?

and you are the one insulting and degrading your religion cos wen you open your filthy mouth all that comes out is hate and more filth.

evangelism or not people should not get in the way of other's by being bothersome, people should be free to make their choices and it doesn't have to affect other's period.

and for your imformation even in zamfara people don't walk up to you in the street and say accept Allah bla bla, they respect you as a human being but when you outrightly dis-respect their religion is when the problems come.

hmm, i think some people have probably gone overboard in the name of evangelism. as i understand it, all christians are to do is to try to show you the way, it is God who converts. and that is only if you are willing the final choice is always left to the person concerned. there is n need to be obnoxious or forceful about it, in fact its the opposite, its supposed to be done in a loving way. dats my 5 kobo

And to the that said "heaven is not meant for everybody" apparently its not meant for you because im sure there is something in your bible against being judgemental.

Alakoba, thats how you will use your mouth to curse yourself because youre too busy trying to save others

It the first duty of every true Christian to preach the Good News to every creature.

Jesus told us to teach ALL nations and to preach the gospel to EVERY creature (Matthew 28:18-20).

Please, mind how you refer to Jesus Christ for your own good.

God is God and not god.

18. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matthew 28:18-20 (King James Version).

It is not by force, but by peace.

And there be no peace without love.

And God is love.

It is finished.

Like others, i agree with the manner of approach. However, as to y they are always trying to convert you, tis the commission given to all christians by Jesus Christ himself, aka "the great commission": Mark 16:15

I hope this helps

You wanna tell me all the Christians you have met did the same thing?

The way you used the word "you people" makes it sound like you are discriminating or something. Yea so some peeps have walked up to you and tried to make you declare that Jesus is the Son of God though all the evangelism I have witnessed it never happened like that. Usually they talk to you about God and Jesus and they tell you about the kingdom of God and if you are interested you listen and if not just tell them to bug off.

"Do you and respect other ppls beliefs, its not your duty to bring anyone with you to heaven because them people be acting like christianity is a referral thing like “I really need you to come with me to church please I pray for you everyday, because if you don’t become a christian, I don’t get enough points to enter heaven, and bring your sister too"--------> it's called Evangelism and those people who go around are called evangelist. They are anointed peeps that are given the privilege to spread the good news. It's like when you get a good deal on something and telling your friends about it so they can take part in the good deal. These people have accepted Jesus as their lord and savior and I’m a Christian and i tell you that's the best thing that's ever happened to me so i want to tell people so do the evangelist but it's also their job as evangelist to tell people.

Some peeps go crazy and according to your story about people coming up to you and all they wanna do is make you say Jesus is the son of God and just going away after that is not right. That's not what Christianity and evangelism is about. The normal thing would be for them to tell you about God and Jesus and make you understand what it means to be born again and be filled with the Holy Spirit. They ask you question and you can also ask question about anything that's not clear to you and if you are ready they pray with you and tell you how to confess your sins. And if you are willing you can give them your name and phone number so they can do a follow up and help you and guide you through it.
