Why do people assume that you are christian when you talk about god?
Rofl. The largest religion in the world is Islam, truthfully. Christianity isn't even a close second. The reason people are thinking "Christian" with the term "God" is because "God" is a Christian term. All religions have their name for the higher power. If you are using the term "God" in place of "higher power" and you are not a Christian, then you probably grew up in a Judea-Christian society.
Assumptions will get you into trouble...
Everyone is talking about God, nowdays.
There are all kinds of views out there concerning God.
Many are false.
If you do not seek out the answers from the bible, you will be led astray.
Because Christianity is the most popular religion in America. Besides, people often like to assume that everyone believes the same way they do - it gives them a sense of validation.
I think it's a good idea to be specific. I think I usually say things like 'from my point of view, as a Christian...' or whatever, so then people know where you're coming from.
there are many different kinds of so called "gods" christianity is all about god, christians believe in god. in other places 'god' is called something completely different
I don't know, but don't take it too personally. People accuse me of being a Christian from time to tine as well, and I'm an atheist!
When you are in a christian dominant region,naturally that is the easiest assumption.
