Bro. Warwick, do not be bait into answering the way he does. I had my time wasted answering him because he answered me the same way he answers you.
---Mark_V. on 3/13/13

You two are indeed brothers, twins. Heckle and Hide. Yes, he would be Hide.

Psalm 44:11
Thou hast given us like sheep appointed for meat, and hast scattered us among the heathen.
Jer 23:1
Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.
Eze 34:11
For thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
Matt 25:32
before him shall be gathered all nations: he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
---Trav on 3/13/13


Trav:

While Moses's slaying of the Egyption may be called "Righteous valor", David's having Uriah killed to cover up his own sin was definitely NOT - and as a result, God extracted a terrible price from him.

Again, slaying the wicked is something they did in the Old Testament, but NOT something Christians ever did (or were commanded to do) in the New. We leave such judgments up to God himself (as in the case of Ananias and Sapphira).
---StrongAxe on 3/13/13


Mark, thank you for your concern however Trav is no concern to me. I actually find it entertaining as his criticisms of me are far wide of the mark. We all have weaknesses and faults but he is not discerning enough to find even one of mine.

That he feels the need to criticize me (and innacurately) only shows his desire is to fling insults. And why is he controlled by such a desire? From experience I believe such odd behaviour stems from envy!
---Warwick on 3/14/13


Trav:
Moses killed an Egyptian. This act is not praised. Rather, he had to flee many years - years he could otherwise have spent doing more useful things.
---StrongAxe on 3/12/13

The fact that scriptures cover most aspects of the years he spent....make them useful. Then and now. The point is there is a time and place even a requirement to do the right thing. GOD did not condemn Moses or David for their acts of righteous valor. Rather the opposite.
Do a word search on righteous...Exodus 23:7
Keep thee far from a false matter, and the innocent and righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked.
Psalm 37:32
The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.
---Trav on 3/13/13


Bro. Warwick, do not be bait into answering the way he does. You have always answered in a respectible way. What you said to Strongaxe about Trav was very true. I had my time wasted answering him because he answered me the same way he answers you. Be strong in the Lord, Jesus says some are not worthy to hear the Truth. To take your peace with you.
---Mark_V. on 3/13/13




I don't know if you remember when Trav first appeared on these pages. His style was to post incomprehensible blogs in opposition to other people.
..... He often gave Biblical quotes which were irrelevant to the subject being discussed. ......
---Warwick on 3/12/13


As explained to you previously when you asked. You didn't/can't understand/see because you crave a different reward. You seek the reward of men....and presume you attain it. Ur reward, is your presumption.
I seek what my Lord seeks. Sheep. They seek scripture/truth.
Matt 10:6
But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Matt 15:24
But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
---Trav on 3/13/13


Trav:

Moses killed an Egyptian. This act is not praised. Rather, he had to flee many years - years he could otherwise have spent doing more useful things.

Yes, David killed Goliath. But he also committed adultery with Bathsheba, and had Uriah killed to cover it up - hardly a bastion of morality, despite being "a man after God's own heart".

But also note that these were Old Testament heroes, and there was much blood and guts there. Not so in the New Testament. Jesus NEVER commanded ANYONE to use violence against others. Yes, he told the disciples to get a sword, but for self defense, as he never instructed them to attack anyone with it. In fact, when Peter attacked the Roman guard, Jesus chided him for doing so.
---StrongAxe on 3/12/13


StrongAxe, thank you for your comments.

I don't know if you remember when Trav first appeared on these pages. His style was to post incomprehensible blogs in opposition to other people. By incomprehensible I mean he wrote in chopped sentences which made little if any sense. And refused to explain their meaning when asked to do so. He often gave Biblical quotes which were irrelevant to the subject being discussed. He also exhibited envy of myself and others.

But he is harmless, the sound of one hand clapping.
---Warwick on 3/12/13


Trav:
If you are thankful to NOT be part of one who says those who follow Jesus should do what Jesus says, what does that say about YOU?
---StrongAxe on 3/11/13

Says I Am thankful to be free of his ignorance. Freedom is found in truth...not avoidance of it.
Defense is found all through scripture. Moses killed an Egyptian, David a giant. David a man after GOD's own heart.
Your hero here is a major confused milk teacher. He would not defend his own house. His own country, kids or wife. His logic is faulty. His posted witnesses are men of the world. Not prophets or scripturally proven.
Luke 22:38
they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

Prov 15:25
---Trav on 3/12/13


Trav, your long absence was much appreciated by me. Don't let me hold you here. You have nothing rational or Biblically based to offer, as you are motivated by ignorant hatred, and envy.
---Warwick on 3/10/13

Hmmm. Expect it would be appreciated. Truth exposes. Light exposes. I do have a hatred of the false teaching. Plus a passionate disgust of ignorant self made authority that does not verify with scripture. All scripture.
Envious? I smile. One is never envious of ignorance.

Proverbs 9:8
Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
Psalm 119:104
Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way.
---Trav on 3/12/13




Trav:

Warwick just said Christians who initiate violence do so against Jesus's teachings - so how can they call themselves his disciples (followers) when they go in the opposite direction? I said much the same earlier.

you replied:
You are the kind of self elected zealot that GOD thankfully did not allow in American destiny... I thank GOD again to be removed from the likes of your girlyman leadership.

Why such vitriol? It is unwarranted, and against the rules of these blogs.

If you are thankful to NOT be part of one who says those who follow Jesus should do what Jesus says, what does that say about YOU?

Also, you just quoted several Old Testament scriptures that have nothing to do with Christianity.
---StrongAxe on 3/11/13


Jerry I am glad to see you understand the point. Islam commands violence and hatred, Jesus commands peace and forgiveness.

The Muslim who lives a violent lifestyle is following the dictates of the Koran. The Koran threatenes him with hellfire if He doesn't, for example Surah 9:81 Ali translation. He is a victim of Islam.

Conversely the Christian who lives a life of violence is living in direct opposition to Jesus commands. How can he honestly claim to be Christian while living in rebellion against God?
---Warwick on 3/11/13


The difference between Islam and Christianity is not the presence of some bad people in each, but the core of the religion itself. Islam is of Satan and Christianity is of God.

Trav, your long absence was much appreciated by me. Don't let me hold you here. You have nothing rational or Biblically based to offer, as you are motivated by ignorant hatred, and envy.

Christians who initiate violence are acting directly against the commands of He whom they claim to follow. Therefore are they Christians?

Francis: A lot of wrong things have been done, one could say 'in the name of Christianity'

That I agree with, and I agree they were wrong

But what Warwick is saying is that what they did [while wrong], is not what God wanted them to do, or what God wanted His church to do

And so, it is not the fault of the church, it is some people in the church who made mistakes - at least perhaps

You could argue that in cases like the Inquisition it was too much part of the church to be excused like the American killing off the natives, or the British in India

Just an idea
---Peter on 3/9/13


---Warwick on 3/9/13
I am the only one dealing with reality here. It was very real for the Africans, and very real for the Native Americans that their suffering were at the hands of Christians

You guys are pretending that slavery never happened: 400 years of violence towards one people, using God to justify their behavior, and you keep pretending that the genocide of the Native Americans at the hands of the pilgrims and founders never happened in the name of Jesus

Then I have opened up another issue: THE INQUISITION

Lets not pretend that Christians have not done violence against each other and against those who were not of their religious beliefs
---francis on 3/9/13


this blog is getting deep. muslims are radical and they are embedding themselves in america for just the right time. as far the christians who came here from england, how do you know they werent' real christians. you really don't know what they did. some history books are not the truth. a particular one is when the atlanta journal published a story in the 60's concerning race. I happen to be working at the atlanta times during that time and I know the truth but my son in law learned a falsehood. unless you were present during the time of early america, you don't really know what happened.
---shira4368 on 3/9/13


Francis, as usual any conversation with you ends up with you becoming more and more ridiculous in your statements. I have pointed out How Jesus commands His followers live, in peace and love. And how the Koran commands Muslims to commit violence. But you cannot see the difference going on about 'Christians' who live in direct contradiction of Jesus' commands, as though their evil is commanded by Jesus.

More fool of me to be bothered reasoning with someone who has little grasp of reality.

francis, you compare those who are truly saved with those who are not. Genuine believers do not go around murdering people. you say,
"If the pilgrims and founders were christians, then why did they do what they did to the Native Americans, and Africans?"
the word "if" is very important here. you don't know who is saved and who is not. Example you, we don't know if you are saved or not. We can guess by the fruits you produce. Let me say, they are not very good fruits. In fact they indicate you are under the written letter of the Law. So you might want everyone to think you are a Christian like the crusaders, but in fact you might not be.
---Mark_V. on 3/9/13


---Jed on 3/8/13
Jed this is not about Americans, this is about the behaviour of christians.

If the pilgrims and founders were christians, then why did they do what they did to the Native Americans, and Africans?

ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM


INQUISITION
---francis on 3/8/13


Francis is really trying to compare the early Americans to modern Islamists who blow up buildings in the name of Allah and gang rape little girls in broad daylight then stone that little girl for fornication, and who make it illegal to be another religion, punishable by death.
---Jed on 3/8/13


francis, it is you who is on a witch hunt of true believers. You have been that since you started. You belief in work of the law for your salvation, so do those muslems who kill for their salvation. No different then they are. Then you compare the pilgrims with true believers who have the love of Christ as murders. First, you have no clue who is a true Christian, second if they are true Christians they would not be killing innocent people.
What you do is kill Christians with your mouth every time you speak. You are so consume by the Law that you are blinded to the Truth.

Of course no Christian is perfect but we do not purposefully, as a lifestyle live in contravention of our Saviour's commands.

400 years of slavery
NOT A LIFESTYLE, it was an ooops we did it again,and again, and again, and.. well you get the picture

//Anyone who examined both Christianity (as defined by Jesus and his disciples), and compared it to how those who called themselves Christians behaved over the ages, might conclude that Christianity is non-violent, but Christians are violent.

Similarly, even though most Muslims may be non-vilent, Muhammad himself taught violence - which Jesus did not.//

Well said and thought out.
---Rod4Him on 3/6/13


Francis you are either thick as a plank or playing games. Matthew chapter 5 covers Jesus' commands carefully explaining how Christians must live. Anyone whose lifestyle is contrary to Jesus commands is in rebellion against He whom the Christian claims to follow and serve.

Of course no Christian is perfect but we do not purposefully, as a lifestyle live in contravention of our Saviour's commands.

Of course you don't wish to revisit the Muslims and Crusaders as you are ignorant of what actually happened. You never let the facts get in the road of a good story.

You do not have any support for your idea and refuse to see the obvious. I have no further interest in communicating on this topic with you.
---Warwick on 3/6/13

This blog is NOT about whether Muslims, as a group, are violent people. It IS about whether Islam is a violent religion. These are related, but very different things.

I do not wish to go back to the crusaders and the muslim, yu have already called into question the christianity of the crusaders. mute point

Now about the pilgrims and founders who ill teated the native amwericans and africans, were they christians or not?
---francis on 3/6/13


Woman, I do not blame Muslim's at all, but Islam. Muslim's are the victims of Isalm. They are taught it from birth and those who follow its dictates are those causing such death, misery and suffering worldwide. I believe the percentage of Islamists to be far higher than you suggest. Do you think that muslims planning terrorism are going to say they support terrorism? But the overriding point is that those who committ violence do so by following the Koran, while Christians who sin do so in direct contradiction to Jesus' commands.

Let us pray that the various Christian organizations reaching out to Muslims will be even more effective in leading them out of darkness.
---Warwick on 3/6/13


Francis, Christians follow and serve Jesus. Matthew ch. 5 demonstrates how Jesus commands His followers live. Anyone who leads a life in contradiction of His commands simply cannot be a Christian, no matter what they claim. Can I truthfully call myself a football player if I insist on playing with a tennis racket, and breaking all the rules, or never go on a football field? No!

You refused to answer my questions about why the Muslims were in the Holy Land. They were there as invaders following the dictates of the Koran. The Crusaders lived contrary to Jesus' commands, therefore not Christian, other than in name, who went to the Holy Land to defeat the Islamic invaders to reopen it to Christian pilgrims.
---Warwick on 3/6/13


Why blame ALL muslims for 2 pecent of what the extremist are responisble for? the ones I have met are against the killings. It's like blaming alot of Christians for the extreme chrisitan churches. You cant put all together. Here in America I've seen both sides the good & bad in both Islam & Christianity. It isnt the religion it's the person. I've seen women treated better here then overseas,this is true. I dont agree with thme thinking Jesus is only a prophet and messiah & not son of God, but I have met peacful muslims. It is up to God to judge.

francis:

We are Christians, not Jews. We should base our beliefs and actions on what Jesus and his disciples did and taught, not on what Old Testament Jews did and taught - except inasmuch as Jesus and his disciples taught us to follow in those same examples. For example, Jesus DID say not one iota would pass from the Law (i.e. the covenant between God and the Jews - not necessarily us, since we're not Jews) but he never taught us to slaughter nations who disagreed with us.

Jed:

Christians living in Muslim countries are merely persecuted and treated as second-class citizens, not generally systematically executed. However, Muslims in those countries who CONVERT to Christianity ARE frequently killed for doing so.

So does the bible
Joshua 12:1 Now these [are] the kings of the land, which the children of Israel smote, and possessed their land on the other side Jordan toward the rising of the sun, from the river Arnon unto mount Hermon, and all the plain on the east:

Joshua 12:24 all the kings thirty and one

Then we have what the pilgrims and founders did to the native americans in the name of Jesus,

We also have the founders justifing their acts against the Arfican in the name of Jesus

You have disqualified the crusaders as none christians, are you willing to go as far as to discount the pilgrims and founders as none christians also because of their actions?
---francis on 3/6/13


Francis, you still evade the point-I will state it again. Reading the Koran we see faithful Muslims are commanded to kill unfaithful Muslims and Infidels. We see them doing it worldwide on a daily basis. It is their lifestyle.

Conversely Christians are commanded, by Jesus, to live peaceful, non violent lives. Read Matthew chapter 5 for example. Have you ever read it?

Therefore Muslims who live lives of violence and hatred are consistent with Koranic commands. However Christians who live such a life are rebelling against what Jesus has taught. Being in direct opposition to Jesus they cannot, by Jesus definition be Christian, as by definition a Christian is one who follows and serves Jesus.

Is this true, yes or no?
---Warwick on 3/5/13


Francis, you have part answered one question I asked, seemingly believing the Crusaders were Christians, solely because the RCC said they were. Does this make them Christians?
---Warwick on 3/5/13
That is the answer I was awaiting

It seems that whenever a group of professing christians do evil, they are disowned

So then, seening the behavior of the pilgrims, founding father and their desendants, was American founded on christian principles?

The inquisition
The crusaides
The treatment of pilgrims and

Francis, as you know I believe the whole Bible is God's word. I do not however believe everything in the OT is relevant to Christians. See Hebrews 8:13 for example "In speaking of a new covenant, he makes the first one obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away."

You have also come to understand the Crusaders went to liberate the Holy Land from Muslims.

The question remains: What were the Muslims doing there?

I also asked "Whatever wrong the Pilgrims may have done did they do it in accord with how Jesus has commanded they live, yes or no?" You refuse to answer as you know an honest answer would ruin your story, and your desire to be an apologist for Islam.

People like Francis always want to condemn America for it's history of slavery. Yet he supports the very party that is responsible for Slavery in the U.S. and opposes the party that abolished slavery! How hypocritical! It was the Democratic party that fought the abolition of slavery, and brought us Jim Crowe laws and segregation, and it was white southern democrats that formed the KKK, and continue to feed racism against both Whites and minorities today. The republican party was founded by anti-slavery activists in 1854 for the principle purpose of abolishing slavery. In 1961 they successfully elected the first republican president, Abraham Lincoln, who ended slavery, despite the democrat opposition to ending slavery.

The answer is pretty clear. I do not see Christians planting car bombs, shooting civilians, planting bombs on women, children and dogs.

I do not see Christians suppressing women.

I do not see Christian taking over planes and crashing them in an attempt to kill thousands and crush a nation.

I don't see Christians or Jews firing rockets at Israel.

There is one group that does all this.

One last point, read what the Karan says about infidels and tell me if you think Islam is a peaceful religion.

Do you not believe THE BIBLE or do you believe ONLY the NT?

From THE CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA

The Crusades were expeditions undertaken, in fulfilment of a solemn vow, to deliver the Holy Places from Mohammedan tyranny

The idea of the crusade corresponds to a political conception which was realized in Christendom only from the eleventh to the fifteenth century, this supposes a union of all peoples and sovereigns under the direction of the popes. After pronouncing a solemn vow, each warrior received a cross from the hands of the pope or his legates, and was thenceforth considered a soldier of the Church.

francis, for you information along Jesus religion was of love for God and love for neighbor. That is what a true Christian is. The Crusaders were no more Chrisian then you are. The were paid killers who received money for their deeds, your religion is of works of the Law, and expect to get paid with salvation. You are no different then they were. Both get paid for their works. Their pay was for here, yours is for heaven. So don't compare Islam with true Christianity. Get your fact right. Crusaders were not Christian.

Well said StrongAxe. Christians who initiate violence are acting directly against the commands of He whom they claim to follow. Therefore are they Christians?

Conversely Muslims who initiate violence are following Muhammed's commands. These Muslims kill any infidel, including Muslim's who will not join them in this Jihad. They consider these inactive Muslim's also to be infidels. Muhammed threatens such peaceful, and inactive Muslims with Hellfire-Surah 9:81, Ali Translation.

It is a worldly religion, of Satan's kingdom. Worldly people can have violent feelings and passions and emotions and ways of reacting, with fear and anger and misery and unforgiveness, etc.

"'Destruction and misery are in their ways,
. And the way of peace they have not known.'"
. . . . . . . . . . . . . (Romans 3:16-17)

You might say ducks are peaceful, but I have seen a male duck attacking another, and one time a mother with another adult was biting and dunking the head of a single mother's baby duck.

Like this, any worldly person can be dangerous. Arguing can be very destructive, not only taking life, but degrading someone from finding out how to love. (Philippians 2:14-16)

anon, I am sorry to hear your story. it is very sad. Most problems arise when someone dies. That is the way of the world. Just be the best person you can be for the Lord. Peace and blessings to you.

bike:

The difference is that, whenever Christians has been violent towards others, they have done so AGAINST what Jesus himself taught - since he SPECIFICALLY taught non-violence. In contrast, Muhammad specifically told HIS followers to kill infidels.

So, Christianity is a religion of peace, even though individual Christians may be peaceful or violent - while Islam is a religion of violence, while individual Muslims may be peaceful or violent.

Francis, you are very ill informed. In case you haven't noticed, it is the leftists in this country that support radical Islam around the world and are buddy-buddy with the radical Islamic community. And in case you also haven't noticed, it is the leftists in America who force their way on everyone and try to ruin everyone who is different than them and will even break the law in order to silence people who believe differently then them.

I am sad today. My mother died a year ago today and my sister burried her behind my back.
I had asked my sister in 2011 to forgive me for whatever it is she's holding a grudge against me and she said, "no, I won't forgive you, I've forgiven you too many times." She said I write stupid letters thus she won't forgive me. I pray for her salvation alot and have her on prayer lists for her and her family's salvation. (((huggss everyone))))

You do know that Islam is the conservitives / republicans of the middle east right?

They force everyone to do as they do by law in thier land. Sound familiar?

Everyone is for4ced to abide by the exact same moral ( religious law) standard not by choice but by islamic law. Sound familiar?

There is a little islam in every republican, and a lot of republican in every muslim

If you read sites that monitor mahometan violence towards non-mahometans, especially Christians, they will blame all their troubles upon "zionists" or "crusaders".

Sometimes they even combine the epithets, coming up with the oxymoron "Zionist crusaders."

The question I want answered is why mahometans always kill other mahometans with whom they disagree, if mahometanism is supposed to be the religion of peace.

BTW, do people here know that the Crusades were begun against the first wave of mahometanist jihad against Christians in the Middle East?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

islam means submission to God.
They are as peacfull as the crusaders.
They as as peacfull as the pilgrims who were welcomed by the Native Americans.

The Koran commands Muslims be violent towards non-Muslims. For example Surah 4:49 'The Noble Koran' "Those who reject Islam must be killed. If they turn back (from Islam), take hold of them and kill them whereever you find them." Surah 47:4 'The Noble Koran' "So when you meet (in fight-Jihad in Allah's cause)those who disbelieve, smite (their) necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly(on them, i.e. take them as captives)."

Anyone who knows the violence rained upon non-Muslims in Islamic countries knows that Islam is a religion of violence.

Islam is made up of 74 (or so) sects much like Christendom as diverse as Pentecostal is from Baha'i
---1st_cliff on 3/2/13


muslims may appear to be complacent but I look at how many have come to the U.S. and how many mosque have been built in the past 20 years. that is bothersome. now they are trying to get shria law in the U.S. Our country is headed to very dangerous times. they come to our country and then they try to change it. try carrying a bible into the middle east. nuf said
---shira4369 on 3/2/13


From the mahometan's point of view, it is.

But to Christians, peace means reconciliation with the Father and each other through our Lord, God, and Savior Jesus Christ!

To mahometans, "peace" means the submission of all people to mahometanist supremacy. Those who will not convert must pay special taxes and feel themselves subdued.

Look up jihadwatch.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
