    in a country with a small percentage of christians and they still manage to be the most annoying trying to convert people.

    why can't they just leave people alone, not once has a hindu, muslim or any other person from a religion other than christianity confronted me with their beliefs in an attempt to change mine. why christians? why do you do it?

    Ultimately it seems to be to "be content in the knowledge of [their] attempt and that [they] will receive a reward from God" as a poster on another thread recently said.

    This is why Christianity and Islam are on top in the world.

    Because Christians believe that being Christian increases your likelihood of having a happy afterlife. So it is clearly showing love and empathy if they try to convert you.
    Muslims, believe the same, but they are less empathetic when it comes to infidels.
    Hindus believe that any path to God is OK, so they don't really mind what religion you follow.

    Oh, and there are some pretty strong instructions in the Bible telling Christians to go out there and convert others. And there are definitely a few (as mentioned already) who believe that 'saving souls for Jesus' earns them brownie points.

    I'm happy with the way things are. Diversity 'n' all.
    I have no desire for anyone to follow my spiritual path because I didn't follow anyone else's.
    Not saying things couldn't be better...

    Actually i thought you were speaking about Christians and why they express their faith,
    now I can see it was a personal statement and I utterly apologise for my impudence!

    What happened to you that was so annoying and how did you respond to them?
