Talk is cheap.

Why are christians so often "unchristian"? Who do muslims call for the death of others who don't agree with them? Why do sikhs and hindu and muslims and jews fight? Why don't deists follow the teachings they supposedly believe in?

Some are: not all christians manage to be 'like Christ', to be patient, have peace, love unconditionally (agape), be joyous, be kind and faithful and gentle, and have self control.

Some manage all of that all the time, or some of those things some of the time. Some don't yet manage any of it, some are one or two of things... it all depends, on a number of things. (Like how far along they are on their spiritual journey, or whether they've wandered off the path a bit, or whether they've lost the point completely... like non-christians we're human too, and certainly not perfect).

Are all atheists grumpy, bad tempered, cynical and greedy?

Of course! It's in the contract when you sign up to the EAC - any lapse and you're out on your earole, sharpish.

Just about everyone I have ever met (and me included) has periods of "grumpy, bad tempered, cynical and greedy". I think it's part of being human. Atheists just don't pretend they don't have any of such faults.

Neither do Christians... since we're all sinners!  :wink:

I'm afraid none of us are perfect. We all show "unchristian" elements.

I'm afraid I can't answer for other faiths, although I suspect some of it stems from fear.

My pet hate is high street evangelists who start confessing their sins to everyone, as though boasting about them. Do we really want to know?

mmm.. actually that's an interesting way of looking at it. Does it really seem as though they're boasting about having sin?
Silver

While some are embarrassed, others do seem to be boasting about their sins. and what a miserable sinner they are. If it was me, I'd say I'd slept with two thousand women, often 2 or 3 in a bed and I'd soon drum up some public interest in what I was saying.  


As a kid, I went to confession and it was a matter of thinking up something to confess. Little has changed now as I lead a boring life.
