Why is it easier for people to believe in Reincarnation, witches, goblins and ghouls, but not christ?

We have an entire subculture, masses of people, who actually believe in ghosts, gouls, witches who apparantly have powers and spells which actually work..Reincarnation and past lives regression therapy which apparantly is making big bucks nowadays, And yet those same people want to say christianity is a falasy..What kinda drugs are you people smoking??..alittle insight please
Oh yea lets not forget about the pychics..someone who can actually tell someones future..gimme a break…what a scam.. and this is a main reason why i say to all nay sayers..maybe u better rethink ur views.

  1. People can choose their faith, but yeah good question. Why are christians thought to be so crazy, how do athiests and others feel about other religions or beliefs, you rarely hear about that.

  2. Because demons try their hardest to turn people away from God, and most people don’t have God, or faith so they turn to a bad side!

  3. Wait a minute…
    Are prophets, one of the main “proofs” of Christianity, telling the future? You believe that, but not in psychics. Interesting.
    (But no, I don’t believe in all those other things, either.)
    I find it interesting that you choose to mock other people’s beliefs in order to asky why people don’t follow your beliefs. Nice hypocracy.

  4. Because by believing in something other than Christ, they can justify their own evil ways. Why do you think so many people call us Christian hate mongers.
    We believe in God’s morality and most people are not willing to live live that way.

  5. Personally, I don’t believe in any of that stuff. I believe that Jesus was (probably) a real person who lived and taught good lessons, but nothing supernatural.
    Ghosts, ghouls, witches, exorcising demons, etc? I think that’s all a load of crap too.
    Now, on the other hand, I think that some things – like prayer helping to heal people – are partially true. However, I think it’s for perfectly reasonable and non-spirtual reasons (mental state of a patient has a huge impact on healing) and not some miracle. Also, most miracles are merely coincidence and statistics – nobody notices the 999,999 times a ‘one in a million’ chance doesn’t happen.
    Now, I don’t discount that there may be some supernatural things that actually do happen. If children are born with memories of past lives, if people can predict the future or communicate over long distances from isolation, or if people can exert force on objects without physical contact – then why hasn’t anyone been able to prove it? If any of those things do happen in any manner – consistent and controllable or not – out of all the examples there should be at least one unarguable case. Yet, there isn’t one single case that’s not more then chance, coincidence, or wishful thinking.
    Myself? I say they are all fantasy. Believe what you want, but don’t act like you are any better – no matter what myths you believe in. I’ll stick to science that is based on evidence, peer review, and factual data…and even then I stay skeptical.

  6. Nikki, I am guessing that you are very young. I am one those people that you so rudely stereotyped. Because I know that not all people who follow Christ are like you, I will make my comments to you and not towards your faith. You, should really learn more about the beliefs of others before stereotyping and insulting people. I hope that you grow up a bit more, take the time to educate yourself, and think about what kind of person you want to be.
    My guess is that you don’t want to be the type of person that comes off as arrogant and self-righteous…but that is what it sounds like now. Good luck.

  7. Christianity has one core idea that no other religion or belief system has. I believe it is this that makes it so difficult to accept (not “believe”, but “accept”) – sin. We are sinful people, we do not truly *deserve* what God has given us, and we must seek forgiveness for our sins. Even more impossibly, God is willing to forgive us.
    How can a being that doesn’t exist *deserve* life? And yet God has given it to us. How can a sinful person deserve heaven? And yet God offers that to us as well.
    Christianity isn’t hard to believe in, its hard to accept. You can believe in your heart, in some way, but fear it, because accepting it means you must accept sinfulness and the need for forgiveness.
    I was really struck by a quote from William Law:
    “If you will look into your own heart in complete honesty, you must admit that there is one and only one reason why you are not a saint: you do not wholly want to be.”

  8. stupidity allows people to believe in such things. They are blinded by ignorance. One day they will, however, know the truth. They will step out of stupidity and into the light of knowledge but for many it will be too late. We can pray for them.
