Essays continue to appear about the immorality of nonbelievers. This writer said nonbelievers resist the “word” because they would have to give up the immorality they enjoy.
Just what is he, and others who make generalizations about nonbelievers, referring too. Is it that nonbelievers steal other’s money, cheat more than Christians in personal relationships like marriage, kill and rape more than believers, or what?
No one ever says what selfish and evil immoral deeds nonbelievers do. Certainly, there is no evidence from crime statistics or any other source that confirms this. In fact, there are suspicious bits of evidence bad moral behavior comes more often from Christians.
In the Bible Belt, for example, there is much more domestic abuse than in the rest of the country. Now, there are no statistics which say the abuse is done by believers. But, this data certainly does not condemn nonbelievers.
Then, there is the prison population. It is over represented by Christians compared to the general population. Every time I bring this up, some of my regular commenters get angry, saying an inmate who self identifies as Christian may not be a good Christian. There is not a box for inmates to check that says, [_] Bad Christian. That they consider themselves Christians is all we know. The prison numbers need to be brought up so long as there are Christians making undocumented and unethical generalizations about the morality of nonbelievers.
Christians would be well served by not passing judgement on others.
