Take for instance the author Anne Rice, who twelve years ago converted to Christianity from atheism according to The Guardian article, but is now saying that she “quit Christianity and being a Christian.”
The reason for Rice’s quitting being a Christian?
The Guardian writes " because of the religion's attitude to birth control, homosexuality and science.
In a message posted on her Facebook page, Rice said she was "out". "In the name of Christ, I refuse to be anti-gay. I refuse to be anti-feminist. I refuse to be anti-artificial birth control. I refuse to be anti-Democrat. I refuse to be anti-secular humanism. I refuse to be anti-science. I refuse to be anti-life. In the name of Christ, I quit Christianity and being Christian. Amen," the author wrote.The rest of us Bible believing Christians can take comfort in knowing that at least Anne is not a hypocrit, has her own version of what it means to be a "Christian", and admits that she is not a Bible believing Christian, and apparently never was born again and had a true personal relationship with Jesus Christ, because this is true Christianity. A person who is truly born again will not publically rebel against the written word of God, but submit to the leading of the Holy Spirit living inside of the Christian to conform to the Word of God. And Jesus did not conform to the world or His critics opinions, but called upon sinners to repent.
This woman sounds totally confused to me mixing up her secular-humanistic views with “refusing to be anti-life” and appears to be blaming all of the world’s ills upon Christians and Christianity in one of her rants in the article:
"No wonder people despise us, Christians, and think we are an ignorant and violent lot. I don't blame them. This kind of thing makes me weep. Maybe commitment to Christ means not being a Christian," she said.Pssst…Anne… Jesus said we would by hated by people of the world for His name sake in the Gospels. Jesus never promised a world without tribulation and trouble, but warned to count the cost before you follow him and said those that endure until the end shall be saved.
