Is there any group in the world more fearful than fundamentalist Christians? They are nearly as terrified of Satan and the anti-Christ as they are of their god. They are suspicious of everyone and everything. How do any of them sleep?

Poor things. I'd pity them if they weren't so contemptible.

In this country alone, the slide has been great. I remember when I was 10, there was a car break in the neighborhood. The police was knocking on doors checking to see if anyone has noticed anything. Today, not only the police do not investigate because of the sheer volume, many donít even bother to report breakins anymore.

In my late twenties I moved in the DC area. My family back in Ohio were shocked to hear that you had to lock your car door just to step in a 7 Eleven, even in nice neighborhoods. Today we donít give it a second thought. Theft is so rampant in stores today, even minor items have anti theft tags. Security greet you at Ross. Small businesses struggle to find employees who wonít steal from them.

The biggest Religion in our society today? It feels good do it. There is no reason to obey God. Everyone goes to heaven, yipeee! This religious philosophy is almost Satanic in nature. The allure of sinning without consequence is a trap. And when the Church is pulled away during the Tribulation, this sect will morph into following the man of lawlessness. There will be no more restraint and the universal ideology will proliferate and flourish so that evil will have an army to do its bidding.

Just a skip and jump away

There is little difference in your mindset regarding words on a tee shirt from most Muslims being outraged about cartoons in a Danish newspaper. Not the Muslims who riorted or murdered but the Muslims who were simply offended and outraged.

Witches and the occult were popular in Victorian times, in the 60s and even the great Newton whom many Christians put forth as a great scientist who was religious worked on alchemy which one today certainly would consider part of the occult.

Bingo. There are some very fear-based forms of Christianity. Fear of death, of hell, of punishment. Right there should be a clue that it's not a solid path to follow. But fear sells, as the hand-sanitizer manufacturers know.

Nobody can argue with you going into a political rant, people get time outs for talking about politics so people make their swipes, and nobody can answer.
I'm talking about how Jesus would be acting versus the actions we have by those in power. That's as political as I'll get on this forum. If you want to know who's separating families, do some Google searches. It's all right there in black and white.

Those people who illegally break into other peoples' country are criminals, and criminals are separated from their children all the time. Lawlessness.

The anti-Christ sits in the Churches condemning the world, while exalting itself.

Under the Law, God said witches are to be put to death. Now, under God's grace, they are given space to reconsider and repent. If they don't, when they die then God will carry out the Law. The place of death is called hell fire. Turn or burn. Repent or perish.

We live on one plant called Earth. It is man that has made it illegal to move from place to place.
It's the ignorance of being prejudice that makes everything a crime, so don't eat at that restaurant?
