My enemies too are those same people; but people of every tribe and nation suffer at the hands of evil men.
I wish their hearts changed that we may all live; they wish me dead because I profess Christ. Dewey, I don't condone killing. I condone life, like my
cult leader Jesus the Christ of God.
I don't know of anyone who wishes anyone dead for their beliefs.
Personally or philosophically? Does the term extremist jihad mean anything to you? Does killing people in order to go to heaven mean anything to you?
Does "this is my land, get off or die" mean anything to you?
You know of people who wish others dead in order to prosper their beliefs. And they use violence to promote and sustain their numbers through
I certainly don't and wouldn't want the negativity of such emotions. In fact, I've seen much more evidence to the contrary. Tolerance and
freedom tend to be encouraged through-out the faiths. This is not to say that oppression of freedom and choice does not exist in parts of the world -
but not all.
I once heard Dr. Ravi Zacharias tell of an encounter he once had in Iran with a Muslim scholar. The scholar boasted of the increase in numbers to the
Muslim faith. Dr. Zacharias reply left the scholar speechless. His reply, "Take your feet off the necks of the people and see where their faith
I'm not sure which world you are watching but tolerance of Christians and Jews in Muslim countries? Tolerance of the Bible in a Muslim country?
Tolerance of Muslims by Jews? Tolerance of the tptb for anyone who would believe in a higher power than them? Ideologies are mass murdering
I don't know where you are from, but if it is the US or UK, then no one wants you dead for what you believe.
Not openly. Praise God we are still one nation under Him. Nevertheless, things are changing and the US and UK only consist of around 380 million out
of 7-8 billion worldwide. You're lying to yourself if you don't think there are many more out there who follow an ideology of world domination and
getting to heaven through killing their enemies.
Freedom of religion was written into the US constitution. This concept that Christianity is regarded a cult is false. The sheer number of
Christians worldwide constitutes it a recognized world religion. There is no persecution, nor is their overt threats of violence being thrown
Tell that to Egypt or anywhere else a Christian would carry a Bible in a Muslim country
I, as a christian or jew, cannot go to the temple mount and pray without being arrested.
Even in America Christians can't get a political vote for sanctity of life. We can't vote as a majority on the definition of marriage without
having a judge overrule the will of the people.
Be blind if you want but more persecution is out there than we even know.
The only thing I notice is the propensity of some to have heretical claims that they know the intention and will of Deity better than others.
As we all become guilty of in discussions such as these.
What's even worse is when those people have no foundation to stand on when that deity and their beliefs are critiqued and yet those people continue
without reason or logic to continue on believing the lies they tell themselves about a God they have created to serve their lusts and desires making
God dependent on us at our discretion
It truly is a shame. Praise God for the reality and efficacy Jesus the Christ who is a light in a dark dark
