    I try not to, as it is a pet peeve of mine when people try to convert me to their religon or other such beliefs of that kind. However, I realize that at some points I might have without thinking about it. I pick a subconcious yes. What about you guys?

    As a Christian, I'm not to force anything on anyone. All I'm to do is share. We are not called to do the saving, I wish the crazed fanatics that give us a bad name would realize that.

    Yes, but on facetious thing.

    I did have a friend who constantly pushed his religious beliefs on me to the point where it literally almost drove me to a pyschological breakdown.

    Ah, to find the one who can express without enforcing. Its so delicate to do. Sometimes even when someone is simply expressing, the reciever thinks that the opnions are being forced. It's hard to have an intelligent debate sometimes.

    I find that highly improbable, you may try not to, but to have never done so at any point in your life, doubtful.

    Downtown Athens is crawling with people, because of the Georgia - Auburn game, obviously.

    Anyhow, I left early, because I really didn't feel like staying out late. The festivities start early tomorrow, and I want to get some sleep. As I left my usual hangout, I noticed a guy on the corner screaming, yes, screaming "Jesus is coming back; are you going to heaven or hell?"

    As a Christian, I thought, "does this really help?" And, furthermore, "did Jesus do the same?"

    I try to imagine Christ standing on a busy corner in Jerusalem screaming at the people, informing them that "the wages of sin is death." Alas, I can not!

    Most Christians have fallen off the path. Fire said it best, in his previous post.

    Because of these fanatics, the Christian church has become a joke, and to some, a cult.

    I use to "push my beliefs upon others;" but as of late, I feel the best way is to do as Jesus did.

    Nice thread, and a very important question. However, sadly, this will never end.

    I agree with you on that. But I also accuse you of pushing your beliefs.

    When atheists express they don't believe in God, are they attempting to force the rest of us not to do it, or are they just letting us know?

    Depends on how they express their non-belief (I would call it belief, but that would piss them off). If they start trying to give you "evidence" against God existance, then they're pushing their belief.

    I try not to, but as this quote above me says. I am pretty passionate, so it can come off as I am trying to change their minds. When in reality I am just expressing my point of view.

    I don't. At least I don't think I do. I do like talking with open minded people though. Hear about their personal beliefs, tell them mine. Heck if I like something I adapt it and make it my own (be it a religion/sprititual thing, culture...almost anything). I like to be my own person.

    My chiropractor admits to being a Jesus freak...but he's really cool about it. Not pushy or anything. He's seen the pentagram I wear and he is respectfull of me and I of him...which is the way it should be. I like hearing his stories of this and that and why...it's discussion not a debate.
