Any moderate Christians here?

I'm really surprised by how radical some of the Christians(even fellow Catholics) on this board are. I'd like to think there are some Christians here who are to learn and open to changing their opinion, but some of you guys are kinda scary. Just my two cents.

Give a hoot. Don't pollute this board with your anti-Catholic bigotry.

Define a "moderate christian"

To me a christian is anyone who follows the teachings of the bible. How do you delineate between moderately following the bible and any other way to follow the bible?

Gonna need a definition. I'd say I don't fit the bill, as I'm radically liberal, to the point where you'd find it difficult to distinguish me from a non-theist unless you got me to actually talk about theology.

I'm a Christian because I follow the Nicene Creed. I'm a moderate because I don't see the need to force my views on other people, particularly on moral issues like gay rights or abortion, and because I don't feel like I need to agree with everything that's in the Bible or in the catechism of the Catholic Church in order to be a good Christian.

Well I think that's a poor definition of a Christian. I'm not a biblical literalist.

Do you feel the same on say Welfare or healthcare Mr Moderate Christian? or would you rather have them starve and die?

If Judeo-Christian God exists, he creates and destroys indiscriminately. He loves and hates all. That's pretty badass

I didnt say anything about literalist this or that. I just said following the bible. If following the bible is a bad definition for a christian, then what do you call a good definition?
