    I am often asked why am I a Christian and why don't I follow some other religion?

    There are many reasons, but this verse from the bible speaks straight to my heart as to the reason why

    Romans 15:7

    Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.


    If we accept one another, just as we are without tying to change them, then we are doing what God asks us to.

    Imagine living in a world where people accepted our differences?

    God has unconditional love for us, it's not based on what we can do for Him as we'll never be able to do enough, its about what He can do for us.The Christian faith is all about God reaching down to where we are, not us striving to reach Him.

    Why do you follow your faith?

    It's fair that you think that that particular verse has good advice, but how does that make you a Christian exactly?

    That's pretty cool that your faith is strong. I don't really want to dampen your belief or anything but that sole statement is contradicted throughout the bible (on women, on relationships between men, on the Amalekites etc.)

    That verse doesn't especially, but the advice the bible gives in the teachings of Jesus does show us how to tolerate each other and how not to be judgemental.

    The example of Jesus is crazy when you think He, as God, accepted everyone and welcomed them into His family.
