Why do people have such wierd thoughts about Christians? I understand that christians haven't done the greatest job of representing themselves over the years but we're not all bad.
James Arthur Guiness was a christian, he invented Guiness!
Wilberforce and the camden group were christians who worked tirelessly for the abolition of slavery.
Mother Thereasa was a christian.
I could go on, but I could also go on about the people who have held a christian faith and cocked things up1
Anyway on a more micro level we often get asked on the street if we drink, the answer we give is "yes but not at work"
Some people think we are a wierd cult! but what can you do about that? We have a faith that compels us to be helpful and kind we are not a cult.
I understand preconceptions and misconceptions, I have them. They are normally born out of ignorance, fear or previous bad experience.
