Of the Christians here, how many of you are literalists, moderates, fundamentalists, and what parts do you believe in and what parts do you reject if any?

What is your reason for rejecting certain doctrines?

That is pure ignorance, and the epitome of the former knownothings.

it's not really a matter of "rejecting christianity"... there is just a difference in interpretation of the bible.

How can there be any foundations in the religion if there are large differences in interpretation? Muslims have to follow the interpretations of Prophet Muhammad and his companions of the Quran for Prophet Muhammad best understood the Quran and his companions were closest to him.

Also a true Christian cannot reject parts of the Bible because he would then acknowlegde the foundations of his religion have errors. The next question then arises, who follows a religion which has errors in it?!I would assume that Christians would have followed the interpretations of the disciples, but I don't think there are records of it?

Yeah like Sunni, Shia, Sufis, Ibadis, Nation of Islam, Ahmadiyyans, etc. Are you the pot or the kettle?

A Christian just like a Muslim can choose not to follow certain parts of their religion. At worst, it just make them a bad Christian or Muslim.

Good question but the only problem is that Christians don't really think that there are errors in Christianity whereas they think that there are errors is Islam. Muslims think that there are errors in Christianity but not in Islam. Go figure.

Christians need only to follow what the Church says is the correct interpretation as the Church was left by Jesus to do just that...among other things.

I'm definitely a moderate. And as a previous poster said, it really is just the difference in interpretation. Where one of my fundamentalist friends may see a literal story, I see a metaphor...

Why (for the most part) do you mention all the small and insignificant minorities which claim to be following Islam? They all together make less than 5%. If every religion acknowledged every sect than there would be thousands of them.

The only sect which deserves any mentions are the raadifis (Shia) and the sufis who are basically a derivation of the raafidis. The raafidis which one sees today did not exist during the beginnings of the history of Islam. They are going to extremes and are defaming the companions and worshipping graves, something which was denounced and rejected during the era of the Rashidun.


A Christian just like a Muslim can choose not to follow certain parts of their religion. At worst, it just make them a bad Christian or Muslim.

That's completely false. From where did you draw those conclusions? The question arises "Why do they reject certain parts and accept certain parts?" because they believe it has errors and is false. Therefore the religion has errors/ is false.


Good question but the only problem is that Christians don't really think that there are errors in Christianity whereas they think that there are errors is Islam. Muslims think that there are errors in Christianity but not in Islam. Go figure.

Completely evading the point at hand. If one rejects parts of their scripture, then they believe portions are in error which means there religion is not perfect. No one should follow a religion which is not perfect and has errors in it.

Christians need only to follow what the Church says is the correct interpretation as the Church was left by Jesus to do just that...among other things.

"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL
