  1. Same old boring judgemental attitudes, comebacks and accusations. Don't Christians wonder why we bother to participate? Perhaps some have moved on to seek more constructive dialogue elsewhere, it seems like fewer and fewer are responding these days.
  2. Pray tell what you consider to be a "credible" news source to report these incidents? Palestinian, Hamas, Iranian? http://www.palestinefacts.org/pf_1991to_no...josephstomb.php http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article....RTICLE_ID=44324 http://www.rense.com/general25/bibles.htm That's not what it's about at all. It's about fairness and equal treatment for all, not only Shia. :)
  3. No, I won't because these new rules encourage the sick mindset that is causing problems with Muslims around the world. In Netherlands with van Gogh murder, Denmark with cartoons that offended Muslims, the infamous fatwa against Salmon Rushdi by one your esteemed Ayatollah's. We didn't find Buddhists rioting when Muslims destroyed two ancient Buddha's. Neither did Christians riot when Palestinian Muslims destroyed Joseph's Tomb and then set fire to the rebuilt tomb a few years later or when they used Bibles as toilet paper in Church of the Nativity.
  4. Good example of rule # 3. Osama bin Laden had admitted that his hatred for America happened when the infidel set foot on holy ground (Saudi soil) and from that time he has been determined to seek revenge on the US. That's what created the bin Laden the world is dealing with today. You are in effect agreeing with this thinking, since you claim he's a creation of the US?
  5. Yes, please note you can't call the Iranian regime any names, for fear of offending an idol (Ayatollah's, Imam's and Mullah's - whatever!). However, please also note that they are allowed to insult Christian clerics, Jewish Rabbi's and any other religious leaders all they want and everyone else has to suck it up. Hypocrits! "Do unto others" does not apply to Shia. This is why Islam is a problem in all the world. They can, and do, dish out insults but as soon as they feel insulted they riot and kill, as happened at the mere allegation that a Quran was "disrespected" by the infidel. :angry:
  6. You breeze in here like a breath of fresh air - a voice of reason! Welcome, Reza06. :)
  7. You're welcome. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure than one out. :P
  8. Oh please, plugging your own site again. Give it up! :rolleyes: If you wish to debate him how about you challenge him .. or are you too important to do it yourself?
  9. I agree with Neshama. My father in law studied at Bible College and Theological school for 14 years and spent most of his life in the ministry. He could read and speak 6 languages. My mother in law could speak 7 languages and her parents and grandparents were also in ministry. They were involved in the actual translation of the Bible into the Zulu language. Such was their family knowledge of the Bible. They were sent to South Africa for many years and were familiar with Deedat who they say had no formal Biblical training or education, although he did read a lot. He constantly attacked Christianity and also condemned it. They say his accusation were often no more than speculation on his part with no evidence to support himself but he was insistant in his arguments and liked to argue and was also a good orator, which he did use to his advantage. My inlaws say it was as though he studied the Bible solely to refute it, but lacked indepth understanding and knowledge of the Bible.
  10. Ever heard children arguing, "my daddy is bigger than yours ... my daddy can beat yours" ... infantile! That's the reason I don't participate more in threads on this forum. It's too easy to get angry and respond, and before you know it, you find yourself caught up in this nonsensical garbage! :angry:
  11. Looks like we've got two different Jesus' here, so it remains to be seen which one will be the true one and which one the false one. The Jesus of the Bible is also the Messiah prophesied about, who walked the earth as a Jew. He will come back to earth again, but it will be to save the Jewish people, who the Bible says will recognize and receive Him as their Messiah.
  12. I agree. A short description of the major religions within Christianity would help explain why there are so different beliefs and opinions. Bits and pieces I've gathered and put together: "Catholicism doesn't place as much emphasis on personal religious experience and scripture as they do the life in the Church and the continuation of the historical organized church as it developed over the centuries, headed by the Pope. Distinctive belief in the ability of saints to intercede on behalf of believers, the doctrines of Transubstantiation and Purgatory, and practices which include devotion to Mary and the saints and use of the rosary. Orthodox Christianity relies heavily on the writings of early Greek fathers such as Gregory of Nyssa, John Chrysostom and St. Basil the Great. Their religious authority is the scriptures as interpreted by the seven ecumenical councils of the church. Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism separated in 1054 AD and no longer has allegiance to the Pope, its emphasis is on the use of icons in worship, and the date it celebrates Easter. Other cultural, political, and religious differences exist as well. Protestantism does not acknowledge the authority of the Pope, rejects many traditions and beliefs of the Catholic Church, and emphasizes the importance of studying the scripture and salvation through direct experience of divine grace. Protestantism encompasses numerous denominational groups some of which are Presbyterians who are indebted to John Calvin and Reformed theology, John Knox and the Church of Scotland. Anglicans and Episcopalian heritage is in the Church of England who broke from Rome. Evangelicalism (and to a lesser degree, Methodism) is indebted to Pietism, a 17th century Protestant movement emphasizing a holy life, individual study of the scriptures, and better training of ministers."
  13. I love Joseph too. Incredible man. Stating that all 3 major religions have a common father, Abraham, he attempts to walk through the first 5 books of the Bible looking through the eyes of Muslims and Christians as well. Glad you enjoyed it too. :)
  14. Because you're mad at them, you think this the right thing to do? - To cause trouble for them? Sorry, I don't get it. :(
  15. I would say since God created us He knows best what sustains a healthy body, and when He gave us fruit for this reason, (Ez 47) it was complete. It's arrogant on our part to think we can improve on it, either by fermentation or distilling and then claim it to be better for our bodies. :no: I think the same thing of the bread we eat. We strip the raw ingredients from it, and with it all the nutrients, then we bleach the ingredients to make the bread white, then we add artificial vitamins and call it "improved - vitamin A and .. added." :huh: I agree wholeheartedly with oldsword81 and Ali Zaki's last posts on this one.
  16. Pray for the peace of Jerusalem! "May they be secure who love you! Peace be within your walls and security within your towers!" For my brothers and companions' sake I will say, "Peace be within you!" For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good. Psalms 122:6-9
  17. Oops, sorry. Since I'm not Muslim I don't generally read that forum (general issues involving Islam). :) Mod's please remove this thread. Thanks.
  18. 15 dead in Mecca hotel collapse Thursday, January 5, 2006 Posted: 1501 GMT (2301 HKT) Fifteen people were killed when a hotel in Islam's holiest city of Mecca, Saudi Arabia, collapsed as millions of Muslims arrived for the annual Hajj pilgrimage, Saudi Arabia's civil defense director told CNN. Another 39 were injured in Thursday's collapse of the building, which is near the Grand Mosque in the center of Mecca, in western Saudi Arabia. Four of those killed were citizens of the United Arab Emirates were killed in Thursday's collapse, UAE's state-run media WAM reported. "The four UAE nationals were killed while passing in front of the six-story building occupied by Asian pilgrims when it fell down," said Mohammed bin Nakhira al-Dhahiri, UAE's minister of justice, Islamic affairs and religion, WAM reported. Rescue workers told CNN that several teams were working to remove the concrete to reach survivors. The Associated Press reported that rescue teams were pulling bodies from beneath the wreckage. Security officials said most of the victims were Arabs from Egypt, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates, AP reported. The Prophet Mohammed was born in Mecca. The Grand Mosque is central to the Muslim faith and the Hajj. Millions of Muslims are expected to arrive in Mecca for the Hajj, which begins Sunday. The gathering has been marred by tragedies in recent years. In 2004, 251 people were trampled to death during the ritual stoning of the devil. The worst tragedy was in 1990 when 1,426 people died in a stampede in an overcrowded pedestrian tunnel. http://edition.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/meast/01...lding.collapse/
  19. Too late to pray for Hitler's soul. He's dead and gone to face his judgement but I do pray for bin Laden, wherever he is, that God will speak to his heart, remove the hatred and give him a "Damascus road" experience! ;)
  20. So was Arafat, the father of modern terrorism, yet I did'nt hear people call for him to suffer a slow and painful death. This cycle of hate and revenge should stop. :angry:
  21. Yes, he's Jewish. He looks to be very open to learning and is refreshingly non critical. :)
