The "spiritual principles as outlined by christ" (which i will henceforth refer to in this way, instead of calling it "christianity") are not to blame for the actions of misled and miseducated "christians".

The problem isnt religion afterall....the problem is that historically the state will hijack religion, piggyback on it, so as to use it for its own means.....this is typically going to result in bloodbath, slavery, torture, and basically all things completely opposite of what said religion is based on.

I agree with the latter part completely. However, I don't believe the biggest problem is miseducated Christians. I believe it is people who call themselves Christians and are not. Anyone can call themself a Christian but that doesn't make it so.

I love my Lord God and there is nothing condescending, arrogant, or hateful about love.

Of course not, too bad most humans uses this so called "love to God" and love to other people in no situation whatsoever.
They only choose to hurt others for their own fun reasons and to follow the concious stupidity all of them have.
And this is not directed to only those who believes in God.
This goes to everyone else who believes in something but at the same time not really believes in it.

I suppose you have met every Christian on the planet therefore you can make such inclusive statements. Good grief! If you're looking for hypocracy then you need look no further than the mirror because every single human being is hypocritical about something. That is the state of our fallen nature.

It's implied. How else can one make such sweeping generalizations?

How can anyone? Because I know how humans are beyond their true hearts and minds.
I know how easy you humans makes excuses to get away from everything you don´t want to see infront of you.
That´s why I can make such generalizations that easily.
But if you want to take something I haven´t said and make it to an illusion just because the slightiest word about God or anything even connected to it affects you then suit yourself but I`ve had enough of weak humans.

You have eyes but do not see, or maybe you only see what you want to see. By not looking at eveything in its totality, including the truth, you expose the true nature of your heart. All humans make excuses, it is the nature of humanity, but not all humans are ruled by their human nature. To deny that is to willingly accept deception. The choice is yours, or maybe not, in which case it truly is sad. Regarding human weakness, in our weakness God's strength excels. By the way, nothing you say affects me personally one way or the other, it is just sometimes I hate seeing lies go uncontested.

It´s rare that a human does not obey their human aspects.
But I`m not going to be happy jsut becauase a few people out of the billions of this world truly knows the meaning of, humanity.
A few does not compensate the rest, sorry.
