Christianity is not the teachings of Christ; it is the institutions that wield the power in the religious world. Just like when I speak of Islam I am not talking about the Koran, I am talking about certain groups and power structures. There isn't a one size fits all approach and there is not a set rule but overall I cannot see any religion that can be called a religion of peace because practically every one has had violence in it's past or present.

When YOU talk about Christianity, you mean "the institutions that wield the power in the religious world", but that is not what most people who are Christians are talking about when they say "Christianity". When we say "christianity",we are indeed talking about the "religion", for lack of a better word. By the way, here are the dictionary definitions of Christianity:

1)The Christian religion, founded on the life and teachings of Jesus.
2)Christians as a group; Christendom.
3)The state or fact of being a Christian.

Varies from person to person. If you asked me "What do you think of Christianity?" I'd ask straight back "You mean the religion or the beliefs?"

Why did this thread devolve into another "Christian" thread?

Can people ever stay on target and talk about what the thread is about?

Not necessarily. It is the nature of these kinds of 'wandering' discussions.

and you do live in a 'right to carry' state
