That's real nice, but I'm sure I didn't ask you if you
thought you were a good person, lol.
What I'm asking is, knowing that Christianity defines religion as two-fold, (caring for others and purifying yourself), I wanted to know if you are religious according to Christianity's definition of the term. It's more of a 'yes' or 'no' question. Of course, like I said to Braked, if you'd rather not answer then don't feel pressured to.
I ask this because many people like to pridefully boast, "I'm not religious!" or "Religion sucks!" or something like that. But when these same people see what religion means in Christianity, I wonder they would say then? If Christianity says that: pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world
, then I wonder if are you against that? Though I suppose people are afraid of Christianity, for whatever reason, and would rather reject love and purity then to admit that Christianity's definition Religion is a very good, or at least admirable, thing.
The whole response would be pretty funny if it wasn't a bit sad.
