I've seen Christians say they have gay friends who know they think they are sinners but they are still friends; I can't help but think they are fooling themselves. Their gay friends might just not be rude, but how can you be friends with someone like that? I don't get it.
This cracks me up. Does this mean that person is a "fake" Christian?
So all "real" Christians are good? I thought Jim Baker claimed he was a good Christian? I guess Jessica Hahn thought he was pretty good since she spent alot of time banging him in the office.
I too think that the purpose is to equate good with Christian. Does this mean there are no good Jews, Mulims, Budhhists, Atheists? How about Simply "she's a good woman".
There are many. many good people who happen tp be Christian. There are many skanks who also happen to be Christian. Same with _____________(fill in the blank religion).
People are fallible and not perfect and there are good and bad in every group.
