Christians like to point out that atheist governments like Stalin killed 20 million people, and they don't hate the person they hate the sin.....I don't by this, and I use history to prove my point.
Will Christians forever be stained by the actions of usurpers who took advantage of unbelievably ignorant masses over the course of the last 1500 years?
Jesus Christ is nothing like any church on earth, including the so-called Christian church which abuses His name.
“Don’t imagine that I came to bring peace on earth! No, rather a sword lf you love your father, mother, sister, brother, more than me, you are not worthy of being mine.

i never said that the believers killing anyone was good, nice strawman. You can't really paint the believer side to be this horrible murdering group of people while not holding the non believer side to the same standard.

It's not man's place to judge good and evil, but God's. Only direct instructions from God to kill the sinners would've been taken and carried out, unless a man sinfully misinterpreted or bent God's instruction for his own purposes. During the OT times, the High Priest directly communed with God and got definitive yes and no answers with the Urim, Thurim, and breastplate.

It's clear from that thread that the holy trinity was, from my understanding, explained fairly accurately to you and yet you still label my God as a contradictory hypocrit.

This thread is dumb. Evil people do evil things and some will twist religion or create a new religion or just find some dumb ass excuse to do evil.

LOL I love it that you stress the claim that your not saying anything bad about christians, then go on about how bad they are. I am sure you got yourself into pleanty of those arguments with christians with your opinions as well. Don't be surprised when some of those christians offer their opinions back at ya.

I noticed how you left out the Native Americans that were slaughtered here in the United States. Why is it that everytime mass death gets talked about, the slaughter of Native Americans gets left out? Millions of Indians died at the hands of religious/greedy Americans. Complete tribes on the east coast were wiped away, and yet this doesn't get mentioned.
