Spare me the historical lesson. You are obviously confused here and you need to go 2500 years back. The Persians invaded Greece. Spartans and Thespians were defending their country. Not the same today.
When's the last time you read Herodotus' Histories? He is widely considered to be the father of modern history. Xerxes invaded Greece, but the Greeks had a choice: they could either surrender and become vassals to Xerxes, who was convinced that he had the right to rule the entire known world, or fight and remain free. Thank God they chose to fight. They did the right thing, not the easy thing. Because they wanted to be free.
90: I had no idea there was a war in East Germany in 1989... perhaps it was some...... 40 years before?...... and that one left a lot of hate and a divided germany, please don't tell me that was good.
I'm referring to the Cold War.
That's exactly what we want you to see. How can you consider Bush a Christian as he's ordering the invasion and the consecuential murders of the Iraqi perople???????????? According to your criteria, he's not a christian. How can you be glad that you have a christian in the white house then?
There is a difference between war and cold blooded murder. Clearly he thinks that Iraq is a threat to the US and to the peace of the world. Otherwise he wouldn't be doing this.
Maybe they just need to teach him the lesson again. He hasn't studied it OK
. If he knows how unpopular it is, then why is he doing it???????
Obviously, there must be some very good reasons for going to war, otherwise he'd be doing the popular and let Saddam continue to murder his own people.
The moent Bush or whoever orders the Iraqi invasion, in my mind Bush stops being a christian. Plus, according to what you stated above about christians in their hearts, etc., Bush is not a christian.
Someone's never heard of the hymn Onward Christian Soldiers. Compared to the Old Testament (and Herodotus), the world is pretty peaceful right now. Sometimes war is unavoidable.
What is this claptrap? Now those evil anti-Christian Muslims are trying to take over the world?
I'm not sure if Islam was even invented by that time (480 BC).
When was the last time a bunch of Christians blew up the car of someone who works in an abortion clinic?
They weren't real Christians. Do you think Jesus would go around killing abortionists? And if we're supposed to try and follow the example that He gave us, well, make your own conclusion.
When was the last time a bunch of Christians gleefullly informed their congregations of those evil Muslims worshipping their backwards god?
Christians know who the real God is, and it's not Allah. However, we do not consider Muslims to be evil or backwards.
Bush wants war...yet he's still a Christian? "Some things happen even when you don't want them to"? Is this the divine Christian answer for all? A refined version of "shit happens"?
How can you say that Bush wants war? He knows that people are going to die. However, he has the backbone to do what he believes is right.
Ah Bush...the guy who's been the middle east all of zero times? Or am I wrong? Has he actually been there? And yeah, all those so-called historians, scientists and doctors are actually just a bunch of anti-Christian Muslim-sympathisers, right?
I don't know what you're referring to.
A 16-20 year old from Mississippi. No, I don't think you do. Go to France and see the fields and fields of unmarked graves.
I'm originally from Connecticut, lived the last 15 years in Alabama, and am going to school in Mississippi. Why should I have to go to France? I've been to Arlington National Cemetary.
You cannot blame Muslims for terrorist attacks done in the name of Allah. Likewise, anyone who would stoop to flying planes into buildings in the name of Islam is someone who has hijacked Islam for his own agenda, and is NOT A MUSLIM IN
HIS HEART, which is where it matters.
Now this is REALLY false. Unlike the Koran, the Bible does not instruct Christians to go out and either convert, subjugate, or kill us (the infidels). Christians are supposed to go to all the ends of the earth and preach the good news, not try to eradicate people of other religions. According to the Koran the men who were involved in the 9/11 attack were good faithful Muslims. Islam is not equal to Christianity.
Ah, good ol' "personal judgement". Who are you to see who's Christian and who's not? Why are you a Christian and they're not? They say they are.
Unbelievers may not be able to tell the difference (hence the confusion over the supposed Christians behind killing abortion doctors and godhatesfags.com, etc), but real believers can. You will be known and recognizable by your actions and attitude.
A bit of a pointless statement, and if there wasn't a Christian in the White House (Christian as defined by MD
-90's handy dandy "101 signs that you're a Christian") another God would be praised. Or...praise be to Jebus if this were to happen...people might actually stop praising a mythical omnipotent being and get on with their lives!
It's not pointless to me at all. And what, 80% of Americans profess to be Christians. It's not pointless to them either.
God loves you too, Heavymetal.
