FacePalm of the Day #54 - Debunking Christianity: Quote of the Day

Here is another example explaining how people can reject something and not even understand it.

Christianity is not a worldview. A worldview is larger than one's religious beliefs. It encompasses everything a person accepts as true. So there are probably as many worldviews as there are people.

If a person can compartmentalize what they believe away from everything else that they think is true then their religion isn't really part of their worldview. Christianity isn't something you do on Sunday. It should affect everything you think and do. IT should have an affect on your values and perceptions...not just what you say you believe. You can't have a worldview divorced from your religious belief. Many of us in the West think it's possible and it's not. Complete Separation of Church and State is a joke if you think that laws and justice is not informed by religion. This is one of the reasons why Muslim societies do not understand the west. For them, their religion is a lifestyle and informs everything they do - in theory. It should be for us as well.

11 The words of the wise are like goads, their collected sayings like firmly embedded nails—given by one shepherd. 12 Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them.

Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.
13 Now all has been heard;
here is the conclusion of the matter:
Fear God and keep his commandments,
for this is the duty of all mankind.
14 For God will bring every deed into judgment,
including every hidden thing,
whether it is good or evil. - Ecclesiastes 12:11-14
