The true meaning of Christianity

I know you think Christianity is a bunch of hypocritical posers who think they’re good and they’re just a load of high-and-mighty douchebags who go around judging people all the time.

Like maybe you think Christians are like this picture right here:

And sure, some Christians are like that.

But I’m here to tell you that they aren’t true Christians. They do not follow the Bible. They do not follow the teaching of God. They do not understand the definition of love or what it means to love.

The purpose of Christianity is just one plain and simple thing.

To love others above yourself, and to love God above all.

We are not here to judge you. We are not here to condemn you.

I’m sorry if it ever seems like that.

And it’s so sad to me that you think that, because we love you.

Yes, we disagree with your opinions. Not because we’re high-and-mighty snobs but because they are sins before God. We don’t hate you because you sin. And sin is sin for a reason. Biblical laws aren’t there just to be a killjoy. They’re there to prevent you from hurting yourself.

The God of Christianity is a God who loves us above all, more than you can imagine, more than is even humanly possible. He is the definition of love itself. He is there to save us. He is there waiting for us to come to Him. He didn’t put the laws there just to make us feel terrible or to depress us. He put them there because He knows us even better than we know ourselves.

He is like a father trying to keep his children from crossing the street. The child doesn’t understand that if he runs into traffic, he’ll get hit and killed. But the father knows this and so he does his best to keep his kid from harm.

In the same way, God gave us His laws to keep us from harm.

So if you ever think we hate you because you’re not Christian, or because you’re engaged in some sort of non-Christian lifestyle, that’s not true.

A real Christian will never hate you. We will only love you.

Yes, we disagree with your lifestyle.

No, it’s not because we hate you.

It’s because we love you.

Yes, we will still be friends with you. Yes, we will always love you. Yes, we will try to tell you about Christianity and we will try to “convert” you, not because we think Christianity is somehow the almighty race that should rule over all. It’s because we love you and we don’t want to see you come to harm and we don’t want you to suffer in hell and we don’t want anything bad to happen to you.

So if you ever think we’re judging you, or if you ever think we hate you, or want you to suffer in hell, or want to convert you for our own selfish reasons, I want to tell you you’re wrong. You’re wrong, but don’t think I’m saying that because I think I’m so right all the time. You’re wrong and that should be beautiful news to you and to everyone. Because now you know that Christians are here for you. We’re here for you, to love you, to stand by you no matter what you think or feel or believe. We will always love you. Don’t ever let anyone convince you otherwise.

I love you, no matter who you are, always and forever.
