Christians... but not Christians

When I look around myself, i know many non-christian people, and also many christian people. But there's something I don't get: some of those christians are just christians by name, non christians by faith. They all say they are christian, and sometimes even boast or try to evangelise, but if you look at their lives, you cannot see any christian example. I know that God forgives their sins and wrong doing, but the thing is that i doubt their conversion to begin with. They swear, they put God's name in vain, they act probably worse than non-christians at times, but then they say they are Christians. Their priorities must be mixed up in some way, and peer pressure is probably a big influence in their lives. These people must nudged back into the correct path somehow, before the devil can utilise this potential spiritual weapon.
Christians have been severely marginalised and stereotyped in the modern world. The concept of christianity has been stained by those who are not putting God as their first priority, and this adds to the misconception of the only true God in the universe. It is my personal desire to correct this misconception, and to tell the world that christianity isnt a bunch of crazy people who desire rules and regulations which make life boring and not worth living.

I definetly agree. I know people, who go to church, read the bible, say they are Christian, but when you take, even a small step back, it's plain to see they're not living with God like they say they are. They don't love Him with all their heart, soul and mind. They go out, drink, swear, lie, have sex etc and they wonder why al these things are going wrong in their lives, why the God they 'love' and 'follow' is cursing them. I admit I was one of these people, but when I did a reality check, i realised, that this was not how he wanted me to be. He told me I could be a better person, and I followed it through and life is sweet.

Also, when one of my friends, last year, said, 'I dont even get why people go to church, I mean, they say they're Christian, but the just go their and gossip and b*tch about people and stuff, its like they say not to sin, but they do it all the time' (Or sometihng like that). And yes its fair to say people do sin a lot... but I couldn't help but agree with her statement...
