That same "internet" you speak of Finn is creating at least three times as many Western hating Islamic radicals as we type away here on CD. Maybe not entirely in Iran, which by all accounts is more open to change than other ME cesspools, but the numbers in their entirety do matter.

If God really wanted too, he could send mass death to hard line Islamic countries (kinda like he sent mass death and destruction to those who hated the people of Israel in the OT), but in the real world, we know this type of stuff doesn't really happen.

I guess only time will tell. Personally, I think the majority of the ME will be stuck in the stone age for the better part of the next 300 years. They already had their chance and they blew it.

Get it?

Meanwhile you post the same words twice as if there is something in them worth remembering............. NOT!

However, it is no surprise to me to see you think your own posts are worth repeating
It's already been repeated a hundred times before by more than just me--but like all fundamentalists a thousand times would never be enough and one is too many. But I wanted to be sure you read at least one of them since most of your posts are self-indulgent and frequently play to the "woe are christians in America" crowd.

And just so you know your own words that contradict your last post--here they are again:

Livelystone post#4

How did you think those words would be taken? Got a "I'm misunderstood" story?

Now you retract what you said the first time? Give us a break. Study basic American history. There has NEVER, EVER been a time in our history that there weren't a crapload of religious people trying to dominate this nation or some segments of society--exactly like they (you) are trying to do now. The difference is, people now have the cojones to tell all of you what you really are. And you're crying "foul" after all the foul all of you have put upon the American people for well over two centuries. But none of it was "closer" to God. It was further away. Now we are running some of the Pharisees out of business and they can't take the heat they've passed out for over 250 years.

Can't help but wonder if history will have a chance to repeat itself.

In the OT and 100 years before it happened God told Isaiah he would raise up Cyrus King of the Persians (modern day Iran) who would set the called out ones free from bondage to Babylon

So He did and the Jews with Ezra and Nehemiah returned to build up the walls and the temple unto the Messiah Jesus Christ

Unfortunately it does not seem to prophesying anything going on over there these days

Never said it was threatened... but in that environment, it is good news.

The persecution against Christian in the west is the outwardly rejection of Jesus , which is family to most Christians ......... like how would you hear it that your family member was outwardly rejected by masses of people and it is a custom which is common and no forgiving ....................Where persecution against Christians in Iran is that they will crucify the Christians from crane lifts

Oh contraire mon frère, it is the REJECTION of closed-minded conservationism.

Remember what Gandhi said--I LIKE YOUR CHRIST, IT IS HIS FOLLOWERS THAT SCARE ME..

Hmm, I think it is Zoroastrianism that most are going back to rather than Christianity. Iranians are very proud of their Zoroastrian past and want it back.
