So Skep, you would suffer a witch to live?

I am confused by that phrase actually. What does it mean to "suffer a witch to live?"
72
Would you kill that which is Demon inspired like when Christians killed witches?

It is not my place to kill. We have to first have definitive 100% proof that it is the work of demons to begin with.

In the Salem witch trial days, I can not say with 100% certainty that the "witches" were demon inspired.
Its Good to see you are more intelligent than a person in a highly illiterate society that killed women for being witches. Did the followers of the Christian masters do the right thing killing women who they "thought " were witches?

I do not believe they did the right thing. if they were truly witches, then calm cool reasoning and sharing the Gospel might have worked better. I would've tried that first.
The fact you believe there are witches is disturbing enough,but the fact you believe other believers would have an open dialogue with you and the witches without burning you as well is hilarious

And to add to Nogods question, Skep; are there less or more witches today than there were during happy-fun-witch-burning-days? Why?

Couldn't tell you for sure.

Simply put, Skeptic, the people in power saw vulnerable individuals who were a little outside the mainstream and used the witch trials as excuses to confiscate their property for Church and State.  To this end, the authorities fomented fear and loathing from the pulpit to whip the populace into a frenzy.

The so-called witches were murdered.  If they had had any actual power worth fearing, they could have and would have defended themselves.

If the true reason they did it was to steal their property, then they certainly were not acting like Christians. That is plain and simple theft. This means they honestly didn't believe they were witches. They just used it as an excuse, thus making their Christianity a lie.

That is even worse than if they honestly thought they were witches. At least if they thought they were witches, I can see where they're coming from. But, to just steal their property is a whole 'nother ball of wax.

It has been more than a year (June 29, 2014) since I opened this thread.

Pathetic.

You did realise the challenge was unachievable, didn't you?

It shouldn't be, for people like Skeptic, who call us brainwashed for not seeing things his way.

That's because we don't see things his way. See, if we saw things the way he does then everything would become clear as rain[1].

That's why theists don't believe I've read 14[2] versions of the Bible because, if I did, it would have opened my heart to Jesus and Biblegod. And, a few may actually believe I did read them all but since my mind is closed, I didn't truly understand any of it.

The Bible isn't that long, 1,280 +/- pages.  Funny enough: the NT is less than 300 pages and Christians can't even seem to read that much of the Bible yet most read novels longer than that. Says how boring they know the Bible is, or the fact the gist of it has been rammed down their throats their entire lives so why should they read it?

Have you ever seen a book by Diana Gabaldon? Her average book is 700-1000 pages long. I have (so far) her complete Outlander set in paperback. I've read most of them twice, and "Drums of Autumn" is my favorite, and i've read it seven times and it's 1100 pages long. I've had my copy since 2002, it's falling apart[3].

The point of reading that many versions was only to see the differences in them. How some verses are watered down, or just rewritten completely different; and the commentary, don't forget to read that, and the linking of verses to justify verses. Of course when http://biblegateway.com came along, it made it easier to find more versions.

I'm reading this right now, it's over 500 pages long:

 1. or piss, whichever
 2. it's actually 14½, I never finished the last one
 3. if anyone needs proof, I can upload a picture of it if need be, and how thick it is, and how many pages mine is.

This is just crazy.

So, skeptic, do you think the children being burned to death for being witches in African countries today are actual witches with magical powers? I lived in Africa and you know what some people thought? That albinos were witches, cursed by the devil. Albinos have been tortured by people who had no knowledge of biology. No understanding of how albinism is caused. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albinism

So, skeptic, when some strange thing happens in the town and the people drag out the albino child, do you join in and help murder the child?

I would not murder the child. But, they don't have the knowledge that I have. I know albinos are not demons. It's a shame that they don't know that.
How about a witch,would you kill one?
