You should do some searches on YouTube and other places about these issues. There are plenty of refutations about these ideas, especially those
Thanks, but I don't need people telling me what to believe. All you have to do is read your history and you can put it together yourself.
oh wait a min... wern't the jews enslaved by both egypt and the Roman Empire a little before and around the time of Jesus??? hmmmm....
I wonder how that could have happened...
No. Israel was enslaved quite a many years before. Rome never enslaved the Jews. They just occupied the Jewish lands.
Sure, point is, both have points of extreme influence on the people, enough to shape a religion.
If you go back further to where the Egyptians took there religion (I believe Sumarian?) and where the Romans got theirs, there too would be points of
contacts and shared stories from other cultures.
in fact, they dont even try and pass it off, they force it down peoples throat with missionaries (which were just slaughter houses in
the past). What happened to acting so peaceful that people actually seek out what spiritual knowledge you have, rather than being forced
Ninety-nine percent of the missionaries don't do bad things or force people into Christianity. They humbly do their work and show Christ's love to
a people, who often willingly choose to come to Christianity. Why let the one percent of missionaries (who often have ulterior motives) ruin the
The "new christianity" perhaps, but how is the past 60 years the whole pot when the murderous christian missionaries were carrying out god's
judgement for hundreds of years before?
To take it a step further, if you don't agree with them, your going to hell,
No, it's not as simple as that. If you don't accept Christ, you choose to go to hell. It has nothing to do with you agreeing with the Christian or
ummm sorry, I tend to look at things as a whole, so when I said agree with "them" I was speaking for the religion, not a particular
and if you don't agree with that, well, you don't believe in the christian bible cause its written right there...
Well, yes. If you don't agree with that then you don't agree with the Christian Bible because it is written in there.
along with killing homosexuals and other sinners...
Christians don't teach that. It was part of the Law. Christ set us free from the Law.
20:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their
blood shall be upon them.
Luke 19:27 But those enemies of mine who did not want me to be king over them--bring them here and kill them in front of me.'"
but the rest of the bible pretty much contradicts everything good he says.
Not really. The rest of the Bible had a purpose. And that purpose is clear when you take the Bible as a whole.
It may be clear, but its clearly not what I believe, in my reality.
But, low and behold, some christians have spiritual revelations... well... people from all religions have spiritual revelations, so what
could that mean? Surely if only one religion was right, God would favor that religion more than the others, right?
One has to be careful with spiritual revelations. One never knows if it is truly from God or not. That is why most of Christendom doesn't practice
I had no idea having a revelation could be practiced...
I believe everyone can have these because everyone is a spiritual being.
