It takes a while, but you are learning. And the Atheists will be there saying we're wrong.
Let's work on a little reading comprehension.
I am a better person because I am a Christian. That statement means.
A) I'm better than you are.
B) Not a damn thing about our relative goodness.
Correct answer B.
Therefore you can conclude I believe which?
A) You are a bad person because you are not a Christian
B) You would be a better person than you currently are if you became a serious Christian.
Correct answer is B. However, I can safely conclude that you do not believe this. Otherwise, you woud be a Christian. However, you might believe this and still be an Atheist. Not everybody is rational.
Let's work on a little more reading comprehension.
Being a Christian makes you a better person, it does not make you perfect. Therefore we can conclude,
A) All Christians imperfect
B) I believe I am better than you.
Correct answer is A. I even believe all human beings are imperfect. That include you
Not exactly a shocking conclusion.
You can even reasonably extrapolate that I believe Christians on average are better than Atheists on average. However, that tells you absolutely nothing about an individual. Are you better than some Christians? I have no doubt. Are you worse than some Christian? Yes. The same is true of me and Atheists. Am I better than you? How the hell should I know and I really don't care. The idea is to try and be a better person tomorrow than you are today and not worry about where you rate compared to other people.
However, I do believe you would be a better person if you were a Christian. Is this somehow shocking or offensive to you? It shouldn't be.
