is Christianity a force for good?

Having watched the debate results of the vote whether or not Catholicism was a force
For good and it was heavily towards no, and recently having k99 join us. I am wondering. Is Christianity a force for good? Posting a poll and hope thee votes honestly.

You can be a Christian and have Christian values without being aligned to any church or faith.
I have stated my views in others posts, it is something that is the business of the individual, and for me, is not for lengthy discussion on the forum, so apologies Rob, I haven't voted.

And for those out there who wish to make assumptions about my motives, or for that matter my spirituality, I would say to you 'cart on, I will neither confirm nor deny your assumptions'.

Okay, that's Menckens view, but as he's not he's part of the forum he don't get no vote.

Rob, the question isn't encompassing enough & the options are to narrow. Obviously you posed it to late at night & no doubt after a few.

There will be a lot of aid going out to those poor people in the wake of Hurricane Haiyan organised by religious organisations of all persuasion.
The victims will also be seeking succour and comfort from their god whosoever he may be in their darkest hours.
I guess even a jedi light sabre will help until the power is restored too Mr A

I am unable to do the poll because I believe that Christianity has been , is and will be a force for both good and bad .

Spot on JCB. Religions often start with the best of intentions, but like all things run by mankind, religions create power and power corrupts...

True about late and after a few. But after the poll is over I'll be interested in the results compared to that video I mentioned

I watched the full debate a good while ago .

Good points were made by both sides .

As for the results of the polling after the debate , well they were pretty meaningless and told us very little .

A similar debate in another place and at another time could have come up with quite different results . It just depends who are in the audience .

A poll of a relatively small number of people is not proof as to whether something is a force for good or for bad .

I prefer to look at the people I meet in my every day living , seeing what motivates them and how they cope with the good and bad in life . That tells me more than any debate among a select few individuals who I do not know personally .

Christianity is what each individual makes of it, I was brought up RC, but it doesn't mean I take everything I was force fed at school seriously, like birth control, can't say I take kindly to a guy, sat in finery in the Vatican, making rules on this when he doesn't play the game

I cannot understand why a self proclaimed Atheist would start this thread, never mind have a poll about it.
