A lot of people have different views, opinions and even perspectives towards Christianity. In fact, there are so much that you could deem most of them as misconceptions. I would like to know if you guys know the most notable or frequent misconceptions about Christianity
In general, some people decide what they want to believe and then read the bible to find something that supports that decision, perhaps with a bit of twisting. Like the preacher who was afraid to fly. When someone chided him about the contradiction, he said "I know what the bible says. It says 'LOW, I am with thee!'"
It is not reliable to let people tell you what the bible says. Many people will make up stuff because they don't know what it says, and many will make up stuff because they wish it would not say what it says. You just have to read it for yourself. Read a chapter of Proverbs every day. Proverbs has 31 chapters so you can keep your place by just looking at a calendar. There is no religion or nothing in Proverbs and you don't have to believe anything. Just read to find wisdom. When you are comfortable with that, then read the bible from Romans to 2 Thessalonians over and over until you start to remember what it says. That is the part that applies to Christians. Here is a book to help you to understand the bible. It's a free download and you can get a hard copy at any bible book store.
