    Re: Why did you choose to be Christian?

    Of yore, I laboured beneath the misconception that God wasn't indifferent. Having finally recognised that what I thought I believed was no more than what I wanted to believe, I opted for an approach of similar disdain.

    Not only this, but there's the glaring inconsistency of God's silence over the last couple of millennia. At least insofar as scripture makes no further comment from Christ's death onwards. This would not seem in keeping with the spirit (no pun) of a previously enlivened dialogue of ceaseless wrath, retribution, miracles and otherworldly agents. Further to this, there's the hypocrisy of setting an inimitable example and the promise of End Time horrors, irrespective of religious format.

    God is a thing to disavow, not delight.

    How is one born a Christian? I thought the whole idea is choosing.

    I believe the vast majority of christians were/are born and raised into it. They will in fact insist it's a choice, but the reality is it wasn't.

    I think that same vast majority, had they been born and raised in some other faith, in a culture that supported that faith, would not switch over to christianity.

    Not all, but most.

    There's evidence of a 'spiritual gene' but the idea of it automatically manifesting as christianity is laughable

    You are not "born Christian". You are brought up Christian by Christian parents. The first option in the poll doesn't make any sense.

    Re: Why did you choose to be Christian?

    I think I have an idea as to why the OP put the option of "I was born Christian". It's clearly a lifestyle choice.

    If there is one true religion, and it's Christianity, then we are all born into it. That is the reasoning behind the first poll option.
