In some religions, it is permissible for non-members to continue being non-members. An example would be Judaism, where non-Jews only have to follow Seven Laws of Noah. In other words, for Jews, it is okay for non-Jews to not practice Judaism as Jews do.

In contrast, Muslims believe that the entirety of their religion is universal and should be followed by all humans. I am currently learning about Christianity. From what I have read, Christians also believe that every human being should be Christian. What are the major Christian viewpoints?

  • This question is a tad too open because there are several Christian viewpoints to tackle and they don't agree with each other necessarily. (I think the same can be said of Islam and Judaism FWIW) – Peter Turner Jul 17 '20 at 4:40
  • @PeterTurner We should really have an overview question on universalism though, and I couldn't find one that already exists. – curiousdannii Jul 17 '20 at 4:42
  • @curiousdannii good point. Flux, if you're really asking if there are any groups within Christianity that don't require full membership. That's an easy edit to make this question on topic. – Peter Turner Jul 17 '20 at 4:47

    I think all you need in order for me to vote to reopen the question is to explicitly ask something like "what is an overview of the major Christian viewpoints?" – Matt Gutting Jul 17 '20 at 20:26

    Not to belabor it to much, but could you edit in Matt Gutting's comment as well. This specifically makes it so people who attempt to answer you're question don't just post their opinion on the matter. – Peter Turner Jul 17 '20 at 21:14
