Entering Heaven by MattShadoinDesign Entering Heaven by MattShadoinDesign
No worldy actions are good enough to get us into heaven, there is only one way to enter heaven and receive the gift of God; and that is by accepting and loving Jesus Christ.
"...and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags..." Isaiah 64:6
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but through Me" (John 14:6)

I bet people are going to start posting comments on how you are trying to shove religion down their throats. *sighs* :no:

Yet I don't see anywhere in your deviation or its description that says people have to follow Christianity if they don't want to. I just hate it when people assume things :iconunamusedplz:

They might, but it is a risk I am willing to take, and as I did with the last person, I explained it to them. A post like this one doesn't help the situation to be honest, since you have just assumed that people will post those comments...

Well, if the person before me actually said something about you shoving religion down their throats, then it was not really an assumption. More like an educated guess.
Sorry if you took any offense, really, but I was not really looking to help or hurt the situation anyway. I was just expressing my thoughts.

An educated guess is an assumption. And I don't take offense, it was just a little bit of a hypocritical comment. And I am all for expressing your thoughts, but don't knock on other for expressing theirs.

I never said anyone should not express their feelings. Never Amd if it looked like that to you, I apologize. I just said something about how I feel about a pattern I have been seeing with deviations like these and the comments they get. Nothing more. You are over-thinking my statement too much. It is what it is, and the messages you have apparently gotten were never intended to begin with.

I know you didn't, but you kinda knocked em. I have noticed the same pattern, and it seems to be a lot of the same people posting the stuff. People are just trolling and it is what it is, life goes on.

I may have over-thought it, that's just how it read to me though.

Well, I am sorry if that's how it's sounded. Honestly, I have abandoned the whole thing of modifying what I say just so that this person or another won't get offended. I used to do that all the time, but no one is ever satisfied and people pick the measliest little things to get offended by, no matter if you are polite. So now I am less tactless and more truthful, and I don't modify my words to make people happy. So that's probably why what I said came off as harsh. But trust me, that was never the intention. While I won't apologize for what I said, I deeply apologize for any misunderstanding you apparently got from it that hurt you. I don't like hurting people.

Fair enough. I don't care whether I offend people or not either, I am generally pretty blunt. And no worries mate, I wasn't hurt at all, just letting you know how I read it.

Its all good. :)

But I am not. I don't force my views on anyone. You believe or you don't, and I can accept that either way. I make this kind of stuff for others who believe like myself.

If you say so.

I didn't say you were one. But it just sounded kinda like you would be.

I know so many people who force beliefs or shun others greatly for what they like.

Thats why I have no religion I follow. Because People ruin it.

Not all people of course, but quite a few..

I hear ya on that one. I dislike people that force religion on others because it does drive people away and really is quite counterproductive to the whole goal.

Yeah. Sorry if I came off as rude.

I feel like I have to guard myself around some christians. My grandmother was crazy when it came to religion. As a child she tried to convince me my favorite things were the devil and would possess me.

Kinda ruined my views as a child. ._.;
