My problem with Christains today

Okay, so if yall didn't know, i'm a christian. I believe that there is one god and he sent his one and only son to save us from our sins, yada yada.

Well, i live in the Bible belt (Which, for those of you who don't know what that is, its in the south and its where the majority of people are Christians ((mainly baptist, or at least in my town))). So, where as you might ask someone, 'what religion are you', you would ask people, 'what church do you go to' around here.
Anyway, the thing that bothers me is that when people say 'oh, i'm SO inlove with god. He is my one and only!' ....and thin they turn around and cuss people out, get drunk, ect. I know people aren't perfect, and the only reason i'm say this is because i can admit that i have a lot of doubts and i do tend to cuss to much (but the difference is, is that I know that, and i always admit it.) But these people are just two faces about it!
And then their parents are even worse, thinking their child is just a good little christian and could do NO wrong. haha, yea right.
And i'm sure its like that other religions too.

Another thing that bugs me to no end is when people shoot down other religions or believes. What people don't seem to understand, is that people believe in their god(s) (Alla, Buddha, Muhammad, ect.) just like we believe in our God. If they feel the same way that we do about our god, then who are we to yell at them?
I know a lot of people at my school will blow up in your face if you don't believe in God. But i wonder if how they would feel if the tables were turned, and a Buddhist yelled at them because they didn't believe in what THEY believed in....
makes you think, huh?

Your irked blogger,

Disclaimer: I'm not saying i'm a perfect christian/person. I strictly just saying my opinion, and REALLY needed to vent about it. I'm also not dissing other religions. If you have a different religion I think that is awesome and i'd really like to hear what you think about it. I'm not one of those Christians that shove religion down people's throat, or look down on them because of their different believes.

Hey, I'm a Christian, and I also live in the bible belt, and everyone here is either Baptist, Presbiterian or shunned. Also, we totally get that "What church do you go to," assuming that you even GO to church.
Also, the hypocresy drives me up a tree. In. Sane.
It's nice to know it's not just me. :)
Good luck, you're full of awesome!
