ourselves. If one's belief is totally cemented, then they would not ever harm another, in any way. They would speak their peace, openly, lovingly,
and not simply toss around Bible quotes, but actually think for themselves. A proper Christian is one that has tamed his ego and has become selfless
(like Jesus), but oddly enough, such a concept is not typically taught to them in that way. Ego liberation is taught in other schools of
religion/philosophy, but "hardcore" Christians are too afraid to learn and apply another religion's teachings. Fear, fear everywhere.

It's a slippery slope of double standards and hypocrisy.
Amazing that you can get that tiny little bit out of it, yet you miss the big picture. Hypocrisy was the point! I have been here a while. I have
been on the receiving end of religious venom, fire and brimstone to the point that I thought I was a Christian, but there is no way in HELL I want to
associate myself with the ones here flashing that banner.
One of the big things we are accused of is "doublespeak". I suppose because when someone asks specifically about one of the few things we are
obligated not to discuss, we don't answer or deflect the question. We even say we are doing it, but that is usually missed.
Then we get the worst kind of Christian come around. The super Judging Christina. One who feels as if he alone knows Jesus Christs will and cleverly
hides that under the guise of quoting scripture. He tells us we are worshiping the devil. Then one of the same types of "Christians" has a site
that denies duality. I find that a bit odd. Even dare I say it, Hypocritical!
So the whole "Hate" thing is way over the top. I admit it. But why else would an entire site be dedicated to the destruction of multiple other
groups beliefs. Is it because that is what Jesus would have done?
"Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." - Yoda
"For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it
judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before
the eyes of him to whom we must give account." Hebrews 4:12-13
People seethe because of this very reason. When abortion, for example, is called out for what it is - the deliberate murder of human life - those who
have chosen to do it feel immense guilt when they hear Thou Shalt Not Murder. Why? They know on one hand intuitively that it is true, yet many will
fight to erase that reminder from their lives. It convicts them in their spirit, yet only a few are brought to repentance because most fight it. So
Christians are then called judgemental - even when it's the Holy Spirit convicting them. Jesus demonstrated this beautifully throughout the gospel.
But today, what we have is a society that has unknowingly sucked in propaganda and indoctrination to change their moral beliefs. Why? It creates and
festers that end time spirit of disobedience which will fight Christ Jesus leading to His return. The Holy Spirit is convicting them today, He is
witnessing the OP's hypocritical attempts to defame the faithful of Christ as "haters" whilst he himself belongs to the organisation participating
in the propaganda and indoctrination of millions into Godlessness. His organisation's calling card is stamped on everything around the world like a
dog that pees on trees, yet, he himself feels the conviction for his words. I can share with him that forgiveness has already taken place, yet he must
choose to humble his heart in repentance for his deeds.
Jesus and The Father make their home in my spirit, they are with me every step of the way.. This is why Jesus said to Paul "Saul, Saul....why do you
persecute ME?" Paul had been persecuting Jesus' brethren - those in Christ - and Christ IN THEM.
Therefore, since He is with me, what need is there to study the doctrines of demons? "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons; you
cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons." Our OP claims that Masonry is compatible with Christianity - yet he knows this is
