    Why do Christians always think everything started with them? The arrogance and/or ignorance is astounding. "The nursing profession" does not have its roots in Judaeo-Christian traditions butterfly, "nursing" or people who have acted as "nurses" has been around in every culture, every tribe and every corner of the globe since the beginning of time. Believe it or not, life did go on before the time of Christian religion.
    Silly. Don't you know that before christianity, there were no nurses? What, do you think all cultures develop a group of people to care for the sick and infirm or something? How absurd!

    And before the ten commandments, everyone thought it was okay to kill and steal.

    And it's inherent morality is why rich nations who identify so strongly as practicing Christians (the united states) give so much foreign aide per capita, while strongly secular/atheist nations (Sweden) give so little per capita.

    I will be making a career change, from the banking industry to nursing. Thought about it over the past year. In my industry, Christians are far and few between. I suppose much of this has to do with the main focus being, money.

    Wondering about the prevalence of Christians in the nursing field? I know much of this has to do with what area of the country one works. Also, non-Chrisitans may not be looking out for Christians in the workforce. I know in my industry, I feel alone, to say the least.
    Your beliefs are irrelevant.

    We would need a working definition of "Christian" before we could do any studies. I work with and know many wonderful people, and I do not know the spiritual belief of many of them....why should that be the "bottom line?"

    Don't worry sister, you have fellow believers around you where ever you go. Don't mind the cold comments on here by the mass of empty non-believers--I always am entertained by people who claim to be athiests or non-Christitans coming onto Christian threads or Christian websites (like the Christian Post) and spewing their hate and intolerance of Christians (they can only judge Christianity by its abuse). But, that's a price for living in this broken world, I guess. The best thing is just to remain steadfast in faith and be filled with the Spirit so to be an example with the fruit in your life. Hopefully, because of your light, people will come to Christ. Continue the faith and God bless!

    I hope my reply didn't come off as "cold." And yes, some folks are just jerks, and hurt their own argument by their lack of tact in presenting their views. I guess I am just urging caution in supposing that someone is "Christian" just because they say they are, or just because they "act right." In my experience and studying extensively the "varieties" of American Christians from differing denoms, and the reality that, regardless of dogma, or "laws" within the denoms, many folks are "Christian" by the grace of God, even if we don't like the way they act. So by contrast, there are many wonderful folks who are non believers. There are many non believers that "act" better than myself, and live very self controlled lives, and are no more saved than the devil. It only happens by God imparting grace through the work of Christ on the cross, or stated another way, by The Imputed Righteousness of Christ, and undeservedly so.
    I do hope you find fellow Believers of your variety to edify each other, and I understand where you are coming from.

    Saying non-believers are empty - now that is cold.

    Sorry, let me clarify--empty of the Living Spirit of God which has been given to us freely and is available to all. Of course, I wasn't implying non-believers are void of emotion or anything like that, as Christians were non-believers at one point and the Spirit of God was added to them. And it can given to you, as well, if you really desire it.

    I think I'm OK on that - thank you. The Living Spirit of God has told me that the power to discern who has or has not this Spirit would not be put in the hands of human beings. I understand that you are coming from a place of generosity and wanting to share with others the blessings you believe you have, though and I thank you for that.

    Coincidentally, God actually has given us the power to discern who has the Spirit and who may simply say it. And the Bible says time and time again that we are judge those who claim to be followers of Christ but who bear no fruit. But, anyway that's way off topic and I appreciate your transparency. God bless

    Isn't it a little arrogant for you to say you have the ability to discern who's a real Christian, and who isn't?

    That would indeed be an interesting study! It's interesting, but one could search day and night, without any success of finding any journal of this sort in my industry (banking industry).....

    Journal of Christian Nursing

    A quick Google search will find a deep connection between Christianity and Nursing. An almost non-existant relationship between Christianity and Banking. Which is probably why the banking industry has been plagued by unethical practices for years.
    Being a Jew, I can't help but find your comments anti-Semitic -- thinly veiled and highly offensive.
