  1. It sounds like the person responsible for making this film is neither Jewish nor American, and might very well be a Coptic Christian from Egypt. I wonder if these radicals will start killing Christians now? A sad world we live in when hatred and violence become a normal response to a stupid act by a mere handful of people.
  2. How about John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Revelation 19:13-16 He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. 14And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword(AI) with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords. A
  3. Last I checked every seminary (my denomination) across the country does NOT teach that "none of the gospel writers ever met Jesus." I'd like proof to back up your claim. There are thousands of Bibical manuscripts, including around 250 complete manuscripts of the Gospels with a fragment from John even found in Egypt - that's how widely it was distributed. Based on the distribution of the Gospels alone, they were more numerous than all details of the Roman history at that time. That in itself is amazing when we consider that was at a time when the Roman authorities had every reason to stop the
  4. You lost me on this one, Reepicheep. However, this world would be a boring place if we all liked the same music wouldn't it? I'm more into worship music myself. Something like this one: God bless!
  5. For the few Christians still on this board and those who may just be lurking, here's something to encourage you. When it started playing my first thought was that it really wasn't my type of music, but they have good voices. I listened on ... you've all heard Amazing Grace before but never like this .. from the Coliseum in Rome. Listen through to the last verse, it'll give you goose bumps! http://link.brightcove.com/services/player...ctid=1913313052
  6. Sssh, don't spoil their fun. My family are all from up north and every time we visit, we're subjected to ridicule, criticism and complaints from Canadians about their neighbors to the south. I met this one guy from Vancouver Island who ranted on about his hatred for Americans. I wondered where this hatred came from and supposed that at some point in his life he must have had a bad experience in the US. I let him vent and asked him when was his last visit to the States. Imagine my surprise when he informed me that he had never visited the US! How does one enter a dialogue with someone like that
  7. If I remember correctly, except for Ezekial who was buried in Babylon, all the Old Testament prophets were buried in the Holy Land. Jesus is the last prophet of Christianity and He has no grave. Peter was an apostle, not a prophet so I have no idea what that Hadith is all about.
  8. Exactly. Thank you. Here Paul, one of Christianity's most beloved apostles, is refered to as "the liar and fake Paul." I not only find that most offensive, but wonder why any Christian would want to enter into a discussion where there's such disrespect.
  9. Christians hear from Muslims all the time that our Bible has been "corrupted," or tampered with. We don't want to live our daily lives in discord and strife, so when people go down this road, very often we will hear the person, but not listen to them. It really makes no difference to our faith or beliefs. Then we hear something like this and we are encouraged:
  10. I don't understand what difference would it make? "And there was evening and there was morning" is obviously earth-rotation days.
  11. However, in relation to the creation of the earth, in Genesis 1:1-13 the Bible clearly states an evening and a morning is one day. 1) In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
  12. I don't think so. The fact that a Jewish Center was an intended target, and the fact that the people in that center were the only ones tortured before being killed, speaks of radical Islam.
  13. Hello Yonus, I love everything about Him. The fact that He came to this earth, took on the form of man so that He could experience all the things mortal man is faced with and teaches us to be the best a human being can be. He taught by example to be kind, compassionate, loving, joyful, patient, forgiving, merciful, gentle, to mention a few. Even though I often fail, and may never develop the character of Jesus, His teachings encourage me to continue trying, and in so doing I truly believe I become a better person. For me as a Christian, His words on the cross, "Father forgive them for they k
  14. Hi. It's been awhile. I dropped in to read what was happening in Canada and had to read what was happening in this forum too. Couldn't resist posting this. For me it says it all. Socrates taught for 40 years, Plato for 50, Aristotle for 40, and Jesus for only 3. Yet the influence of Christ’s 3-year ministry infinitely transcends the impact left by the combined 130 years of teaching from these men who were among the greatest philosophers of all antiquity. Jesus painted no pictures; yet, some of the finest paintings of Raphael, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci received their inspiration fr
  15. Assumptions once again, IAA. While I know I have never threatened anyone, I also know misunderstandings happen, where someone reading one of my posts might perceive something I wrote to be a threat. That's the only reason I asked for further clarification. No need to edit anything out. Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Yours has spoken. This shrine/mosque destruction is a tragedy but to have people consider a shrine more important than human lives, that they go out and murder 3 Imams and retaliate in they way they have is so extremely disappointing to say the least. :cry: I
  16. Don't make wild assumptions. Quote the post you're referring to so that I can have an idea of what you're talking about. I don't hate anyone. You should considering converting to Islam, you'd fit in quite well with the rest of the Jew hating majority. You and Greg belong to the same clan or something? Cross burning must have turned sour tonight. ;)
  17. Well done! I like that. I don't believe the majority of Sunni's would approve of this bombing either. It's probably remnants of Saddam's Baathist regime in cahoots with Zarqawi people. I hope Shia and Sunni leaders get together to talk and work together through this terrible time in Iraq's history.
  18. Of course it does, and should. It's a tremendous loss, but it can be rebuilt. They caught a number of men who they say are insurgents who entered the Mosque dressed in Iraqi police uniforms. Tit for tat burning of mosques is not going to solve anything. It's going to further divide the country. I hope the Shia take this opportunity to show the world a better way to deal with this situation and not the same way some acted over the cartoon situation.
  19. He's right in one respect. Human lives are more important than stones. While this is a great historical loss, be thankful that a lot of lives were not lost as well. Buildings can be replaced but the lost loved one never will.
  20. Spoken like a true Muslim? We can feel the love. *puke* Why do you continue living in a country that you think so little of? Why don't you move to an Islamic country where they are incapable of wrongdoing. :rolleyes: People like you, and comments like those above, make it very difficult to trust Muslims. This mindset seems to be more common among Muslims than they let on. BTW, we don't need to stir civil war. Muslims have a history of not getting along with each other. Never have, never will. They react violently to other groups, rain curses at the drop of a hat, chant "death to" all and su
  21. Nice try. Start another thread if you'd like to but don't attempt to hijack this thread for the purpose of changing the subject. :angry:
  22. Is lust a sin? No, it's normal. The person who feels lust is not a sinner until they act out on it and cheats on their spouse. Same with homosexuality. Some things cannot be legislated. If a person feels n his heart that there is no God, you cannot force them to believe that there is. You can attempt to reason with them and hopefully convince them that there is a God but killing them will serve no purpose. It will forever rob them of the chance of getting to heaven.
  23. Don't feel bad forte, it's not you personally. ;) Rather you will find it's the pack mentality which, unfortunately, rears it's head when their perception is that Islam is questioned. You'll get used to it.
