I'm changing my stance on apologetic behavior.
The first mistake of every anti-Christian argument is generalizing a title given to literally thousands of religions. Each with it's own definition of what was written in not one, but hundreds of versions of a collection of books that can vary drastically from one version to the next. Not every version of the Holy Bible even has the same books in it.
Saying "Christians are this or that" is no different than saying "Europeans are this or that" or "accountants are this or that".
The only truth you can say about Christians in general is "Christians believe in a God named Jesus". Everything else has as many exceptions as rules. And there may even exist a sect of Christianity that would consider that debatable to some degree.
Even hell is arbitrary to Christianity. Some versions of Christianity believe hell to be a "self-induced state of being" others believe it to be "whatever those who go there make it". Some consider it permanent, for others it is temporary, some even consider it a metaphor.
And the last mistake of every conversation about Christianity is when Christians from many different religions come out in troves to provide the teachings from their version of it. God knows I've made that very mistake too many times on here and in conversation else where.
No Christianity debate can be final, as no one group of people can ever complete the points for every religion that calls itself Christian.
I still believe apologetic behavior can improve relations between Christians and non-Christians, but I don't feel this is my calling and it should probably be left to somebody who has a degrees in Theology and Philosophy. #christianity #antitheism #jesuschrist #religion #religiousities #apologetics
