Here's just a few to get you started. Many more can be supplied if required.

You're welcome.

I'm wondering what all of this has to do with the OP.

There have been many wars waged by Christians over the interpretation of the Bible.
Claiming that these Christians are not real Christians is saying that Christians make no mistakes, which obviously is not the case.
Christians like the rest of the human race is capable of making (huge) mistakes.
You really don't get it. True Christian are not murders. And Jesus tells us no murder will enter the Kingdom of God. I'm not saying Christians don't make mistakes. Yet Jesus tells us that murder is something more than a simple mistake. Murder reveals the heart of man, and no Christian can be a murder and say he loves God at the same time. If you have a problem with that belief, you will need to take it up with Jesus, because that is what He taught. I don't care how many people call themselves Christians. If they go out and start killing people for the sake of doctrine or land grabbing they are not Christians.

Hear is the answer to your links first question. The Bible states that no one has seen God face to face and lived. That is a true statement, and that would have to be the Father, yet the Bible tells us that God exist in three persons. Jesus was the bridge between man and God. And many have seen Jesus . Yet the reference would have to be speaking of God the Father for He is greater than Christ. And Jesus tells us this much. The Father exist in Spirit, Jesus exist in human flesh.

You know that it is a sign of a serious mental condition when a person sees things and hears voices speaking to him...You may want to get that checked out.

Yet the Christian church became what it now is because of the killing and the land grabbing.
The Churches could have given the money, land etc all back but this has rarely happened.

I told my wife she was pregnant before she new of her condition. What I heard, only confirmed my wifes condition. If it was a mental condition, then my wife should of confirmed I was in error. Yet she only confirmed that I was right. For some, the truth must be dismissed at all cost, yet for us who love the truth, we see the power of God.

A personal interpretation?

And the other errors and contradictions?

That's a very sad video clip. One wonders how many of those kiddies witnessed their friends, family, brothers and sisters being killed. So sad.

Which Christian church are you talking about? There are many. And as I said, just because someone calls themselves Christian, that does not make them one. And I know a number of Christians that have been giving their money all over the place to many causes. One person I know has just built a hospital in Africa to help aids patients. And this kind of work is going on all the time, all over the world.

This is all fine and all, but when do the American Christians give the Native Americans their land back?

Not that this is not admirable, but when do Christians share the wealth equally around the world?
Giving big donations is a great tax write off, but it is the same as carrying water to the sea.
Many wealthy Christians (all over the world, so not just in America) are in direct competition with the poor farmers in 3rd world countries.
Unless we solve these kind of (world) problems no Christian can call himself a true Christian, simply because we all are taking advantage of the poor (even if it only is by proxy).
