I don't know about everyone else, but I have a lot of friends who consider themselves a part of this or that sect of Christianity, yet only attend church a few times a year.  Along with infrequent attendance of services, these people often deviate from the standard doctrine in relation to sex, alcohol, drugs, profanity, and a myriad of other issues.  Clearly, these people are not "living the life" of a true Christian.  However, when faced with the idea of atheism or issues of church and state, they will vehemently defend their Christian beliefs.  My question is why do these "C&E Christians" care so much about their religion only when controversial issues arise?  If the C&Es really believe, why don't they follow these beliefs, or at least TRY more than a couple of days a year?  If you really believed in a heaven and hell, why continue with behavior that you know will lead to hell?

What does C&E stand for?

Hell, when your're sealed with that stamp of salvation it doesn't matter how you live. Confess jebus and go party! It's living a lie but people want to do what's convenient and, more importantly, fun.

Seriously, it's a joke.

Mabel- C&E is Christmas and Easter.  It basically means people who only go to church on major holidays.  I think it may be more of a Catholic saying than anything else.

I actually didn't mean to post this yet, so I'm sorry if it just seems like a bunch of rambling, that's exactly what it is at this point!
