Christian terrorism

Yes, Christian terrorism. A very thorough list of terrorist activities:

Christian terrorism

From the article:

Christian terrorism is religious terrorism by groups or individuals who identify (or are labeled) as followers of Christianity. The motivation of the Christian terrorist is typically rooted in an idiosyncratic interpretation of the Bible and other Christian tenets of faith. From the viewpoint of the terrorist, Christian scripture and theology provide justification for violent political activities.

    in answering these 10 questions
    please excuse my incredibly long answer…

    1. Why won’t God heal amputees
    Because He doesn’t need to. Everything He does is for His reason, not yours. Just because He doesn’t give people the power to regrow their limbs, doesn’t mean He can’t.

    2. Why are there so many starving people in our world?
    Because no one has the courage to stand up and help them. Just because He’s there doesn’t mean He’s going to magically cure every disease and every famine that comes to earth. He wants us to help them, because we are all His children.

    3. Why does God demand the death of so many innocent people in the bible?
    “Why would a loving God want us to murder our fellow human beings over such trivial matters?” Well it wasn’t trivial back then. We are taught today to accept homosexuals; things have gone so lax today that no one cares who works on the sabbath, or if teenagers are disobedient, but things were very different back then. You can’t disprove God’s existance through pre-jewish rituals thousands of years ago.

    4. Why does the Bible contain so much anti-scientific nonsense?
    Concerning Noah’s ark: When Moses wrote genesis, the entire “world” to him was the middle east. A lot smaller than the Earth, and Mt. Everest was well-away from God’s flood. Concerning the story of Jonah and Adam’s creation: those are metaphors, moron. The Bible, the old first few books of each testiment especially, are not to be taken literally. One day to God could be 6 billion years to us.

    5. Why is God such a huge proponent of slavery in the Bible.
    Because the Bible was written thousands of years ago. Slavery was acceptable then, God didn’t like it, but that’s the way things were. You also failed to mention that after Colossians 3:24, it says that masters should treat their slaves fairly, because we are all slaves to heaven. It’s an allegory, genius.

    6. Why do bad things happen to good people?
    Because God can’t be everywhere at once.

    7. Why didn’t any of Jesus’ miracles in the Bible leave behind any evidence?
    What kind of evidence would last for 2000 years?

    8. How do we explain the fact that Jesus has never appeared to you?
    Jesus has appeared to me. Speak for yourself.

    9. Why would Jesus want you to eat his body and drink his blood?
    “For what I recieve from the Lord, that which I have given unto you, that the Lord Jesus, on the night that he was betrayed, took the bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, saying ‘This is my body, given unto you, do this in remembrance for me.’ And likewise he took the cup after supper, saying ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood, do this as often as you drink of it, in remembrance of me. For as often as you eat of this bread, and drink of this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes again.’” It’s a metaphor, when you take communion at church (if you’ve ever been to church), do you eat your minister? No, the entire point of communion is to remember that Jesus died for our sins.

    10. Why do Christians get divorced at the same rate as non-Christians?
    How can God control how seriously someone takes their religion? Devout Christians wouldn’t get divorced; only the ones that don’t think it nescessary to follow the Bible strictly do.

    I don’t really mind that you don’t believe in God, but don’t try to question my faith, and don’t question my God, by telling me He isn’t real. Don’t you dare call me delusional for believing in something greater than myself; I believe in God because He has helped me through so much. I love Him so much, and no one, no one is going to take Him away from me.

    What bothers me the most is your point 6.

    6. Why do bad things happen to good people?
    Because God can’t be everywhere at once.

    Why not, has his engine run out of dilithium crystals? Without realising it, you have just given us the main proof why god doesn’t exist. I thank you for that.

    Seems to me that you have become the judge Micheal and your insults seem to take you back a few thousand years. What level are you speaking at? Are you waiting to die also when Jesus comes for the rapture and take you back? Nobody wants to take you away from your imaginary God. Stay in your world and please don’t go psycho on us and come kill people because you think you are right.

    9. Why would Jesus want you to eat his body and drink his blood?

    You didn’t really answer question 9… you do what all Christians do when trying to cling onto a Faith they know makes no sense:

    You begin to answer all questions by quoting scripture, proving you are in fact brainwashed and totally devoid of free will.

    “I don’t really mind that you don’t believe in God, but don’t try to question my faith, and don’t question my God, by telling me He isn’t real. Don’t you dare call me delusional for believing in something greater than myself; I believe in God because He has helped me through so much. I love Him so much, and no one, no one is going to take Him away from me.”

    Calm down lady, we aren’t heartless! We can’t take Him away from you any more than we could tell a small child that Santa isn’t real that’s half the fun of being a ‘small child’ or any more than we would take a four year olds IMAGINARY friend away, but all children grow up someday.

    Except the ones whose lives Christians rally to save, the ones that are born of mothers too young to suport them, they that will be neglected for an entire lifetime– those that are brain damaged, or with fatal birthdefects, because GOD FORBID we save a single child from the tregedy that is never living past the age of three, bound in shell that might as well be Hell itself, spending every waking moment in constant pain and suffering because of our righteous ways, or living every day with an IQ under thirty drooling in a wheelchair; Yay, pro life rocks!

    Homosexuality is Natures way of population control… the problem, christians are still breeding like bunnies.

    Sorry, I don’t like it when people plagiarize the works of others and use it as their own personal answer.

    6. Why do good things happen to bad people?
    I believe that God has given us all free will. If Sam wants to kill me and has a gun to my head, God will not take that choice from him. We want to make our own decisions, yet expect God to save us when things don’t go as we planned.
    God gives to as he receives from us. Charity, how can you expect a God that you don’t believe exists to save children from deformity or death? First you must believe, and then you will see the miracles around you!
    My daughter Kara, was born with a severe facial deformity. It was hard, but I leaned on Jesus, and I prayed for her to be healed. He didn’t send a lightening bolt from the sky to airbrush her into perfection. But he was there with me when I stayed up all night in the hospital(several times)after skilled hands performed surgery on her. She will probably never be perfect, but she was healed! And she is beautiful! I believe with every ounce of my being that God saved my daughter from deformity. Not by healing her with his hands, but by putting love into the hearts of all those that helped her, and by giving me the strength to make it through by simply just being with me.
    I believe that’s all God wants. I don’t think he wants us to do this, this, and not this. He just wants to be a part of us, for us to lean on him, for anything! And no, every prayer will not be answered. But rejoice the ones that are, like my beautiful daughter Kara.
