Christianity is always looked at as firstly a religion. People first examine it as a belief....pointing out it's rights and wrongs....and squabbling over tiny issues of no importance.
When really what most people don't see, is that Christianity is not a religion...but rather a love affair. Christianity is not a belief, or a political statement....it's something that ones life is committed to.
That's where we, as a Christian culture have gone wrong. We need to let go, and just let Love take it's course :)
