According to the law of the time, upon the owner's death, title to the land would revert to the previous owner, or (if no previous owner could be determined) to the Church. This made witch-hunting an easy (if exceptionally cruel) method of regaining a profitable piece of arable land.
Tell you the truth even after the rapture occurs most people here on ATS will say it was Aliens or something
Catholics are technically not Christians because they pray to saints and believe that a priest can absolve them of their sins, whereas the Christian Bible states that the only way to salvation is through Christ.
This is likely because the Protestants were opposed to the Puritan belief that the church should be allowed to administer capital punishment as it is contrary to Christs teachings in the New Testament.
I imagine many of you will be raising your eyebrow at this one, but in a recent post an individual blamed Christians for all the deaths in the war over the Holy land.

The reason why Christians are being blamed for everything, is because they are easy scapegoats, and if I recall diddnt the bible say this would happen... Tell you the truth even after the rapture occurs most people here on ATS will say it was Aliens or something, and then when all of the bibles prophices come true they will still refuse to belive.... So really you cant fix stupid you know the truth you tell them the truth and if the choose to belive differntly its there life and the good lord saw fit to give us free will.
Technically, they are still Christians.
They interpret different passages than most Christians and for them, those interpretations validate their beliefs.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,
Just like all of Christianity thinks Jesus was the Messiah and interpret or rather, cherry pick certain Messianic Prophecies to show he was.
Christians are the one's waltzing into the middle of something they don't belong.
Christians belong to neither the House of Judah nor Israel, so what are they doing there preaching the words of a false prophet?
