I'm tired of some of you trying to convince us that there is no God and that religion is evil.
I'm tired of some of you telling people that we're heathens going to hell for not accepting Jesus. 
There is too much hypocrisy in two good belief systems. And this doesn't even have to apply to just these two groups, it can be applied to ANYONE.
I don't care if you get mad at me for being blunt and direct. Let people find themselves, let people discover their own opinions on life, don't strive to create them into sheep who will just believe anything you tell them. Let your faith/opinion/goals set as an example for others to embrace rather than a direct command. Instead of worrying about how other people's beliefs are, work to take better care of your own, make sure your beliefs can grow and adapt when necessary, don't let them sit in stone to be used as a crutch.

Humans are not meant to convert others into Christians, that is God’s job. We are merely ambassadors and guides, here to point people in the right direction and answer questions

Following Along the Spiritual Path of my Ancestral Background and Heritage, I guess A good way to Simply Put my Religion or "Belief System" Is that I am Simply what People would consider a "Animist", Just Like my Ancestors. (Animism has to do with Spiritually Believing that Non Human Entities such as Flora, Fauna, Animals, Trees, Mountains, Streams, Soil, Rocks, Vegetation, Mother Earth have a Deep Spiritual Aura or Spirit and Soul and Mind in themselves or something like that).

Oh thank you! This always goes for both sides as well. Just because I am an atheist and I don't believe in God doesn't mean that I'm smart and that everyone else is stupid. People can have their own beliefs for Christ sake! While I don't have many friends who are very strictly religious, I have a couple that are strict atheists and just bash on religion all the time. You don't know these people, so don't call them ignorant xx

Are you religious or something? I'm not harming you. i'm religious myself, and this stamp proves a good point. Especially your description.

It depends. What if, for example, somebody is a supporter of Nazism? Or Shinto imperialism that killed more people in Asia than Nazism did in Europe? Or a Juche ideology that's been starving hundreds of thousands of people in North Korea since its establishment? When someone is supportive of such oppressive ideals, I believe we've got to say something about that.

Indeed, beliefs are never changed by force. If you want someone to share your faith, you need wait for them to come to you.

My personal philosophy is that God accepts any name you use for him, even multiple versions of him, as long as you're doing the right thing. So I'll shove "don't kill small children" down people's throats, but not CONVERT OR DIE.

At what point as a Christian do we draw the line between spreading the gospel and forcing our belief on another?

Treat it like you are inviting them. Don't lecture them, and don't yell at them. God's grace is an invitation to receive a gift. You should treat it like one.

As Christians who are called to share the gospel of Jesus, we can share to those who are willing to hear it in a fashion that doesn't make them feel that they are being lectured like children or make them feel they can't possibly be good enough for His love. If you tell them "you MUST believe"  the more likely it is that they won't, and the REAL problem with that kind of strategy is that is God is looking for people who are genuine and seeking in Him, not because they are simply told to. Best strategy would be to treat them like they are welcomed and free to choose, as God intended.

I'm an agnostic Wicca, and I fully support this. You shouldn't force your religion — or lack thereof — on other people. I like to share my opinion, but I don't say that you're wrong if you don't think according to my personal set of morals and beliefs. Live and let live. It's not a hard concept. Quit trying to force your deities upon others. It's not right, and it makes you a loathsome annoyance that wants to be clumped together into the species known as the human race.

Agreed.

I get tired of some atheists that go around and say 'You're stupid for believing in God!!' or some christians that go 'You'll go to Hell for not believing in God or Jesus!!' Stop. Just stop right there darn it >< Let people believe what they want to believe. Instead of worrying what other people's beliefs are, I just mind my own business and believe what I want to believe. Nice to see more people like you on DA ^^

the argument could be made that by making this stamp you are pushing onto others that its not okay so SHARE your beliefs, religion, or opinions with others.

at least I didn't find any hypocritical talk within the authors comments.

sharing a pushing have a fine line of difference between the two of them. It isn't so easy controlling yourself talking about your beliefs and religion.

XDiaLinnX Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2013
There is still a difference, yes. And many people of all kinds don't really understand the difference. The way I observe it, if you want to share your beliefs/opinions to be able to relate to people who also share them or are interested in them, there isn't anything wrong with that. But if you put yourself in a position where you try to make people who don't agree with your beliefs/opinions think the same way as you do, that is where you are pushing them. I find this happening with christians, atheists, pro-choice, pro-life, even movie fandoms. This is why I had put "Let your faith/opinion/goals set as an example for others to embrace rather than a direct command."

True... you cannot force anyone to believe anything... and often if you try they simply resist.

We should follow the example of the apostles who simply preached the gospel and if people were interested, they delved deeper into it with them, formed churches.

I do, however, understand SOME people who become a little zealous... there feel they have to do God's work for him, that simply sharing the Word isn't enough. I don't think they do it to be jerks, I think they do it because they know that eternity is on the line for them...
