Take This Test To See If Most Americans Would Consider You To Be A ‘Religious Extremist’

6 posts in this topic

Are you a religious extremist?  For years, world leaders have been endlessly proclaiming that we need to eradicate “extremism”, but what actually is “extremism”?  Many would point to the ISIS jihadists over in the Middle East that are beheading people that don’t agree with them as examples of religious extremists, and I think that very few people would argue with that.  But our politicians (especially the liberal ones) rarely use the term “Islamic terrorists” anymore.  Instead, they tend to use the term “religious extremists”, and that has a much, much broader connotation.  In fact, if you are a Bible-believing Christian, you are probably included in that category.

Most Bible-believing Christians would never think of themselves as being similar to radical jihadists in the Middle East, but that is precisely how many of their fellow Americans very them.  The Barna Group has just released a shocking new study which found that 45 percent of all “non-religious” Americans believe that “Christianity is extremist”…

The perception that the Christian faith is extreme is now firmly entrenched among the nation’s non-Christians. A full forty-five percent of atheists, agnostics, and religiously unaffiliated in America agree with the statement “Christianity is extremist.” Almost as troubling is the fact that only 14 percent of atheists and agnostics strongly disagree that Christianity is extremist. The remaining four in ten (41%) disagree only somewhat. So even non-Christians who are reluctant to fully label Christianity as extremist, still harbor some hesitations and negative perceptions toward the religion.

Even more troubling is what the study discovered about how the general population views specific religious activities.  There has been a tremendous shift in society, and behaviors that were considered to be completely mainstream a few decades ago are now considered to be “extremism”.

Are you ready to take a test? Look over the Barna infographic that I have shared below very carefully.  Have you ever participated in any of these “extremist activities”?…

Anyone who reads blogs, comments, and FB posts by Christians who are also III%ers or Militia will notice that when they talk of armed insurrection, or killing, they invoke their god.  Since the death of Lavoy their has been a sharp rise in this group invoking the Christian god when expressing a desire to kill cops, liberals, or anyone else who doesn't agree with their viewpoints.

If they sound like religious terrorists, make threats like religious terrorists, and use their religion to justify violence like religious terrorists, then how are they really any different from ISIS?

Personally,  I don't run my life or opinions by polls, questionnaires,  or other people's opinions.  I find it simplifies things for me and eliminates a lot of unnecessary stress. I  don't think I'm a religious extremist,  therefore I'm not.

They're not really Chrstians then. o.o Christ said put away the sword, not plot on thy enemies. So they are no diffrent from ISIS, they both claim to rep a God of which they have no actual understanding. The diffrence being Allah calls for his people to murder unbelievers like every 7 lines e.e
