The desire to destroy Christianity
An new post SCREAMS "A SERIOUS FLAW IN THE BIBLE"
Posts stating Christianity is the MATRIX. And on and on... I know this has been discussed before but I would love an answer...
Why is Chrisianity seemingly seen as the "Great Satan" in the world?
I guess if you are a Christian, you know the answer. It is prophesied that Christ and Christianity would again become a target like in the days of the
But in a contemporary sense, we did it to ourselves.
Oh yes, the mixing of religion and politics was a very noxious soup. Good Christians who had no wish other than to spread peace, signed up with the
political likes of that fallen empire and today, they are saddled with that stigma.
Life is a good teacher and it is clear that the good is always taken down by the weight of the bad. There was never any way that mixing the teachings
of Christ with politics, was ever going to result in anything but sorrow.
Now, I cannot and will not try to speak for all Christians. But for myself... I hold to the Gospel of Christ as a roadmap to human salvation. Not
through submission, but through success. There is nothing in the New Testament that would cause us to hate our enemies or despise our foes, To the
contrary, we are taught to turn the other cheek.
Christianity was hijacked by the politcals and their numbers used (if not abused) for temporary gain. The result today is a general falling of favor
of Christians, as one will clearly see on this site, with the animosity displayed towards them.
Christians, in an effort to create a better world, foolishly fell to those who used them to their own ends. In fact, the same thing is still happening
in Islam, where a perfectly good and peaceful people are being raised to a war against the Christians.
Now... I am not the perfect image of faith. I am not a church going person. But to me, the picture is obvious and the path of the future laid down in
spite and hate and death.
Chances are, this cup will not pass because so many, who rather than try and understand their fellow humans and beliefs, choose to condemn and take
sides... honing the script for conflict.
In closing... it is a shame because Christians are no one's enemy just as Islam is no ones enemy. But we WILL be led... and we will raise armies in
the name of gods we do not serve and for reasons we do not even understand.
