In what way have I judged you? Was it when I said you must be born again? Was it when I said that the people of this world are separate and lost and without God? Was it when I said that Christians are eternal and the people of this world are as the animals and carnal because they are not reborn, they are fleshly and think only of the hear and now? Was it when I said that there are some of them who worship gods that are no gods at all?

Now, if I must judge, and my judgement is to be true, I must judge according to what you actually said. Tell me if I am right to say that you hate me because I am a Christian.

_____________________________________

Your quote from page 3

"I though martyrdom was a good thing for Christians. You get to reign with Christ a 1000 years and get all kinds of goodies like crowns and iron scepters to break nations like clay pots. Why are you complaining?

Furthermore, how many Heretics/Pagans/Witches/Homosexuals/Blasphemers/Atheists and random people has Christianity persecuted and destroyed? Countless.

Karma is a bitch. You reap what you sow. Even God must obey his own laws, this the real reason you are being persecuted and he/it lets it happen. Y'all deserve it as a consequence of what you have done to others."

____________________________________

Would you not say that it is you who have judged wrongly. If your Karma god were to reward you would he not return to you what you have said? Thankfully he or she does not exist. As for me, I simply forgive you and move along because I understand why you say what you do. The Bible has made this known to believers so that they will not be dismayed by the anger and rejection of the world against them.

It appears there is an all out assault on Christians in the Middle East. They are being targeted, beaten, murdered, raped for their faith in Messiah Yeshua. Where is the outrage in the West? These Middle Eastern countries are not our friends. They do not want to live peacefully with the Christian Nations.


Is this serious or are you trolling. No, really, I'm asking a legitimate question here: Do you whole-heartedly stand by your opening post or did you just make this in a quick attempt to get stars and flags?

This what's supposed to happen?...Expecting an old book to tell you the future?

If this is all correct and destined why are you complaining?


I agree. Their religion states they will be blessed with an eternal paradise when they die, so why, O' why art thou scared?

Haven't you noticed? We've all overdosed on fluoride and gmo's. You could tattoo 666 on all of our foreheads right now and we wouldn't even put up a fight. Its depressing to watch.

Persecuting someone based on religious beliefs is a sign of stupidity, not prophecy.

Consequently, persecuting someone because of religious beliefs has been a religious practice since the dawn of time.

Christianity had it's way for hundreds of years resulting in millions of unnecessary deaths but now the world has science and has become much wiser.

There is no need for old beliefs to control the world anymore. If we continued to let Christianity control us, we would never have gotten out of the Dark Ages.

I also mean all religion. Look at the Mideast, religion still has a stranglehold over there and has resulted in millions of deaths due to their archaic beliefs

The OP implied that Muslims were dragging Christians through the streets and showed anger toward Islam as a whole.

My point was that the actions of a few do not define the whole, as the article I linked shows.

that photo and the story behind it is an exception. the people of egypt are waking up and realising the falsities of their rulers and flaws in their way of following their muslim doctrine. this is why they are achieving peace among religions.

we can only wait for the rest of the world to catch up.

Yes it is sad, Obama is more Muslim than anything else so he don't care, our government is controlled by evil anti-Christian people, and they control the main stream media so that is why you don't hear much.
Then you got militant atheist on the internet, probably some possibly funded by the government, who constantly spam their ignorant bullcrap all over the place, on Youtube, on here, on other discussion boards.

But Jesus did say this kind of thing would happen until he returns, and it sure does.

The Book of Life will be a small book. Life is short, death is assured, Heaven and Hell are eternal. The choice is yours. Good Luck

Ah the ol' "God's Plan" logic.

God has a plan for everyone, and all things that happen are according to god's plan...


... but we have free will...

You can't have a predestined plan, and free will at the same time. One means that all your actions, thoughts, etc are already set in stone prior to your birth, which means that NOTHING you do in your life is of your own volition.

Ergo, either "God" makes people who won't follow his rules, just for the thrill of being able to punish them, or there is no plan.

Oh and if Christianity gets marked as a mental illness, then ALL THE RELIGIONS WILL BE.

Also - complaining about a loss of churches in a war torn country, saying that it's because of a prediction in the bible, is being intellectually dishonest.

The planet that youre God created sent the tsunami, it also sent the tsunami that killed 300.000 in 2004, your faith killed more in the crusades, than Fukashima ever will, shall we keep going??

I for one should think it is a mental illness.

Believing in some imaginary friend in the sky that does nothing before believing in yourself which is capable of anything.

Blowing off all forms of evolution even when it stares you right in the face. Making it seem that your imaginary friend put them all there at one time, even though this is the 1% of diversity left throughout time.

If dinosaurs walked with humans where's the scriptures? No not dragons they fly.

And where did they go, did your friend just get bored and smite them to hell?


If you don't want to be called mental then don't act mental.


You have front, i shall give you that. But absolutely NO reason for your statement. Your post is about 80-90% irrelevant too...

Your complete disregard for Christianity is shocking. Although you may not follow a set religion and seemingly believe (correct me if i'm wrong) that there is nothing to life other than what we already know, you must have some lenience with those who choose to think differently.

I'm not going to apologise for believing in a higher power. I'm not going to apologise for looking at the world through different eyes to yourself. Your ignorance and intolerance is quite frankly worrying. I'm not asking you to believe in God but i'm asking you to respect anyone who does. You should NEVER call someone "mental" You have no idea and, more importantly, are in no place to say such things based on religion.

Do i think it's "mental" to follow a religion, that on a whole, preaches tolerance and love? No. Do i think it's mental to believe that all there is to life is the physical? No. I think it's misguided.. but i don't think it's mental. If anything, you could suggest it's more practical to believe such things. But personally, and i know i speak for many regardless of religion, i think there is a LOT more to this "life" than meets the eye.... ears nose or anything!

So to sum up. You're misguided, intolerant and a little bit rude. I'd suggest that if you have anything else to say on the matter you do so in a form that isn't offensive to anyone.

It's not hard.

Here is another one for you, my farther was a big strong loving family man who I loved dearly, he was our provider and defender, he was just and honest his hole life, then he withered to a living skeleton in the most terrible pain I have ever seen, not only did he suffer so badly but as a family we suffered watching what he had to go through, no doubt my son will see my die in an equally horrific way from cancer or heart disease or whatever, but its ok its Gods will, is Christianity a mental illness? you bet your ass it is.

Please.. do keep going.

And also, whilst your'e at it.. let me know why you're placing blame on something for a natural disaster? You have a strange view on the world and anyone who believes in "God"

I've often wondered why people play the blame game to discredit religion. The world isn't perfect.. everyone knows that.

The crusades are definitely not something to be proud of... but once again you're seemingly blaming Gods for anything terrible that happens in the world. Keep doing that, you're going to have to keep blaming and blaming until you're no longer here. Is that any way to live your life?

There's a lot we don't know. There's a lot we don't understand. We can't understand or imagine God. It's completely out of our control and knowing.
