    Default Feeling judged for beliefs

    Hey guys does anyone else get judged completely for their beliefs? Like just because people don’t believe in anything doesn’t mean they have to completely disregard what I believe and make fun of me for being “brainwashed”

    Hmm. Nearly of the Apostles were brutally murdered for their faith. Jesus was brutally beaten, tortured, mocked and murdered himself. There's a book called Fox's Book of Martyrs is a book full of people, for centuries, that have been imprisoned and murdered for their faith. I heard about a man in India where the villagers stormed his home and pulled him and his toddler out of the house and beat them both, for their faith.
    That's just a few examples of people being "judged" for their faith over the centuries. The bible even says people will be beheaded for their faith when the anti-Christ rises.
    The world is mostly full of non-christians.
    The bible itself talks about how we will be hated and persecuted for our trust in him. Persecution, whether in the form of being made fun of, or death, is a part of our faith we need to expect. The bible says God's ways appear as foolish to the unsaved (a huge paraphrase, but the point is there).

    Bottom line, if you're a Christian you have faced this. And will again one day.

    I learned a long time ago not to be bothered by any negative things that people may say about me. I really could not care less.

    Rejoice then,because they are "desperate" and "can't understand God" so they throw insults,it's been going on for centuries,strive to just "Trust" God/Jesus,and "speak only when needed and try not get angry" it's not easy but you don't wanna "stoop to their level".
    Joefizz- king of randomness -making others laugh is his hobby.

    I'm a smart idiot that serves God and I'm determined to keep to a future I believe in and trolls don't like me.

    If you don't believe in true love then please don't tell me not to believe in it because I believe it to be real.

    You are perfect?
    self righteousness is as filthy rags the bible says.
    You might wanna reconsider that ideal.

    We are all family in God's eyes,so please at least try to get along,sincerely, a child of God.

    Thumbs up Re: Feeling judged for beliefs

    For me, this happens often. I have one friend who is Jewish and one who is unsure of her faith, but believes in God. Otherwise all of my friends are atheists. I try to respect them and not force any beliefs on them, but I am often judged by them for being "childish" or "stupid" or "brainwashed". I get that some christians use religion as an excuse to hold hate in their hearts for others and that Christianity has been associated with some horrible things, but they don't even try to respect my religion. I want to trust God, but it's hard to stick with my heavy devotion to my spirituality when others don't take it seriously.

    Of course. I didn't get judged directly, but I've seen Christians being rudely judged and it effected me as well.
    You are not alone! And this exactly what Jesus knew would have happen to us.

    Everytime they say Christians "brainwash" people, I think : If this is true, then, why there are more atheists (raised by Christian parents) than God's followers? They're just the proof of Christianity brainwashing no one.

    I feel sorry for your experience.

    What Atheists think Christians follow/do, isn't really what we follow/do. A lot of them, easily confuse and link Christianity with Catholic Churches. They probably think we follow the pope's words and acts, when we do not. And they may think we defend pedophiles in said Churches. Most Atheists wants to discuss about our faith and belief in God, but they are usually ignorant with the ' subject ' and get easily irritated.

    I don't really get judged for being a Christian. Probably because no one ever asks me about my religion.
