Those charities are all scams. Every single one of them. I thought everyone already knew that?
Neo-Pentecostal messages seem to be remarkably compatible withglobal market values. This often leads to a suspicion that neo-Pentecostalism is a part of the expansion strategy of American-basedmultinational corporations. Neo-Pentecostal mission organisations areseen as partners of the corporations, with the task of preparing social-cultural conditions for the global market.
That's very dishonest. There are letters/literature written far before the Council of Nicea that mention most of the books used in modern Christian canon; and the Catholic canon is actually quite different than the East or Protestant Bibles.
Many have tried to subvert the bible, first i wonder where they succeeded, but i also wonder why they tried?

You have stated more than once you are not an Atheist. Your target is Christianity and the Western World it would seem.
It might be easier to discuss knowing where you are coming from. You are "not an atheist" correct? That means you do believe in God, correct? Do you belong to a religion and which one?
I don't see how the content of the OP can be made "easier to discuss" based on information about me personally. It seems like what you are getting at is that I would be easier to attack personally if more information about my personal life was given, as you are having difficulty dealing with the content of the post itself. As I don't really have any desire to discuss my personal life here in this thread, I think we should focus instead on the ideas that I am presenting.
