Such division and strife. What is most saddening, is that personal contact with a group which claims to represent a certain teaching or doctrine, may have resulted in the damning of an entire theological viewpoint. That is tragic considering what price early Christians paid to bring us the religious freedom we enjoy today.
I come across Christians that are not very Christian. Does that mean all Christians believe and act as they do? Certainly not. They are just a select few misrepresenting a group.
If you had run-ins with a person from a particular denomination or ideology, the first question you need to ask yourself is this, "Does this person properly represent the ideas they claim to follow?"
"Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven." Matthew 7:21
Is anyone Christian enough to apologize?
