For ages, Christians have been living on certain misconceptions. The misconceptions have been energized by their desire and zealousness of what they believe is being faithful to God. I am a Christian, but I will point out at some of the misconceptions Christians believe in.
Christians are Better Than Others
It may seem tricky to understand this, but all people on earth are equally important. We are all the children of God and are equal before him. There are several scriptures that detail the importance of humility and if we are to be like Jesus, we should have a servant’s attitude. Jesus was the son of God, but could wash other people’s feet. The book of Romans 12:3 instructs people not think of themselves as better, but should be humble before God.
Christians Are Perfect
Jesus died because we are sinners, we are not perfect. The son of God died for our sins because of our faults. Faults that we continually cry to the Lord for salvation and forgiveness, and if we are perfect, why should we then cry unto the Lord. A person who cries for forgiveness is not perfect.
The book of Romans 12:3 instructs people not think of themselves as better, but should be humble before God.
Christians Should not Have fun
There is scripture neither in the New Testament nor the Old Testament that teaches Christians not to have fun. Jesus in his lifetime had fun where he would occasionally fellowship with family and friends. The myth on fun, however, depends on how one takes or defines fun. Fun is not all about partying and doing the latest cocktail drug , but enjoying simple things such as telling stories, hangouts with friends and family, shopping among others. Have fun in all you do, but remember you who you represent.
I hope these few misconceptions give you a clearer idea of Christianity. Cheers!
