Religion is one subject I don't argue about. There is no middle ground because, at the end of the day, everyone believes something different. When it comes to religion, some people try to pick and choose when they want to be religious. Others tend to be selective in what they choose to practice faithfully. I cannot speak about every religion, but I would like to point out a few things that I have noticed when it comes to Christianity.
Some people omit the parts of the Bible that their behavior is contrary to, yet find that one verse they feel is most accommodating for them at the time. You can do that, but it's not right.
I'm not perfect; I am in no way trying to be judgmental, but I understand what it means to "practice what you preach." I simply want to remind people of the importance of faithfulness, not just saying that you are Christian, but exuding it through your everyday life. Difficult? Most certainly, but it is definitely not impossible.
