Preaching and Worship / Re: Why Christianity is the one true religion

Well you know that's got me convinced.

Since you guys are atheists, I will preach to you why Christianity is the true religion.

The first evidence is the historical evidence for the existence of Jesus Christ. The majority of scholars agree that there was a historical man in Judea called Christ who was crucified under Pontius Pilate according to the historical writings of Josephus and Tacitus.

But Jesus Christ could not only be a mere man because by the time of Emperor Nero, there were Christians in Rome who believed that Jesus was the Christ which was the title for messiah. If Jesus was a man, then how come there was a new religion that genuinely believed he was the messiah. They were persecuted under the tyrannical Emperor Nero who used them as a scapegoat for the Great Fre of Rome in 67 AD. Christians refused to recant their faith upon threat of death. If Jesus was not the messiah, why would the Christians be willing to die for a lie?

Throughout the history of Christianity, there have been eyewitness accounts of visits by angels and the spirits of the Saints.

Evidence for the afterlife and heaven and hell comes from the numerous eyewitness testimonies, and documentations of ghosts in haunted places. Earthbound ghosts are often spirits that have such an attachment to the location that they won’t move on to heaven such as a location where they were murdered. Other ghosts such as the ghosts of unrepentant sinners are cursed to remain on Earth as a punishment of hell. This is often the case with murderers who often are forced to reinact their crimes. The spirits of those who committed suicide are often seen at the location of their suicide. This was shown in the story of A Christmas Carol where the ghost of Jacob Marley appeared to Scrooge from hell and warned him of his fate if he didn’t change his ways.

Many times ghosts return from the other realms if their graves are disturbed or if they are summoned using ouija boards and witchcraft. This happened in the Bible in 1 Samuel 28:15 when King Saul consulted a witch to summon the spirit of Samuel who gave Saul an omen that he would die the next day.

People have witnessed dark spirits showing that demons are indeed real. Demons have been caught on tape. There is also the phenomena of sleep paralysis where people wake up but they are unable to move, and they see a shadow or hag go on them and assaulting them. This is an interesting documentary of the phenomena. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=QmbpOucNVn4

There have been documented cases of priests healing the sick, vanquishing evil spirits, and performing exorcisms. Using holy water and blessing haunted houses have often ridded the house of demons.

So please repent and join an Anglican Church. I am suggesting an Anglican Church because it has Apostolic sucession unlike the other Protestant Churches and because the Catholic Church is corrupt and full of pedophile priests. The chief punishment of hell, is not being in the presence of God in the paradise of heaven. If you don’t repent you will weep and gnash your teeth knowing that you are being punished for your sins. Perhaps you will see heaven and know what you missed out on. Perhaps I will be able to visit you in hell and mock you for missing your opportunity.

In hell, if you are so sexually promiscuous, you will lust for the ghosts of women but will be unable to have sex as you will not be granted new bodies in hell. You will be so horny that you will lack rest. That is what the 2nd Circle of Hell is a metaphor for in Dante’s Inferno.

So please repent of your sins. Join me in eternal paradise.

So, our Denim snowdropper has taken a break from the Gap catalogue to tell us how he opposed Oliver Cromwell because he was a sectarian and was mean to Catholics, which he's not anymore-whatever, but he was to restore a dead royal line because he thinks they'll be sectarian to Muslims, because reasons.

Also thinks that the present Royals could summon the PM and ask them to do their bidding or even more hilariously, that a bunch of randos no one's heard of could do it after turfing the incomprehensibly popular Windsors out of Buckingham Palace and pulling a Lannister on them.

The royals, even under the limits of the Consitutional monarchy, do have de jure power to appoint and dismiss ministers, give assent to bills, etc but they haven’t exercised it in the last 200 years and left it to parliament. So it is their fault that they haven’t exercised their power in defense of the nation. The English will realize that and be fed up with the Windsor’s. And as I said, the Scottish will defenetely support the Jacobite cause because they will remember their hero, Bonnie Prince Charlie.
Has it occured to you the reason they haven't is because they'd be laughed out of Buckingham Palace? Seriously, even die-hard Conservatives aren't interested in being led by someone just because they look good in a fancy uniform on the telly and keep the gutter press happy! Yes, the poms love their Queen, that's not the same as wanting their Queen (or king) to delete democracy! If you're thinking of the Australian example with Gough Whitlam, yes the Queen's representative was able to pull that off, but only with a hung parliament and the support of the opposition party who wanted the PMs job for themselves, not direct rule from Buckingham.

As for the Scots, they'd prefer their own parliament called the shots in Scotland than the one in London, none of them are clamoring for the return of the bloody Jacobites. Seriously, you're less in touch with modern day Scotland than The Donald. Don't believe me? Go into any pub in Glasgow with your loopy ideas but bring a coat, I'm forecasting gales of laughter.

How would they be laughed out of Buckingham palace if they fully exercise their legal power. There would be no legal precedent that could stop them.

Since the Scottish want independence, the restoration of the independent Kingdom of Scotland under the personal Union of King Joseph I with local rule under the control of the Scottish parliament will be promised to them.

Am I missing something, or is he saying it's okay to generalize 60 million people based on a relative handful of emails to one columnist?

Yes my RL Muslim friends are immigrants or children of Immigrants.  Some wear Hijabs because they want to but so what, it's none of your business what hat somebody else wears.  They might be pissed off if I ripped up a Quran, but wouldn't you be pissed off if I ripped up a bible?  Seriously do you know anyone who is a Muslim?  I'd advice you get to get to know some and hopefully learn your ideas a bigoted nonsense.

And no, that lady offered no evidence.  Some people yelling in a crowd proves nothing.  There are over a billion Muslim's on Earth and they are not all the same.  Correlation does not equal causation, the Earth's temperature has increased at the same time that Pirates have declined in number, but that does not mean Pirates stop global warming.  Again I live in a Country with lots of Muslim Immigrants but we aren't having a "rape Crisis" or giant terrorist attacks.  DIRECT QUESTION Why do you think we haven't?

You advocate using warfare and violence to subjugate and destroy a cultural identity.  That is genocide, or at least cultural genocide.  DIRECT QUESTION If Muslims resist, how will you deal with them?  I can see no way to maintain such tyranny without genocidal mass killings.

I could go on and on but I don't feel like it.  Get bent you racist motherfucker.

1. Do your friends want Sharia Law to become the law in Canada?

2. Hijabs are horrible because they are a symbol of women’s oppression, forcing women to cover their hair.

3. I would be pissed off if someone ripped up a bible, but I would not kill them over it. People who insult Islam, draw Muhammad, and such face death threats from Muslims, and some such as the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, got killed.

4. It proves that there was a massive crowd of Muslims supporting killing Jews. There have been antisemetic hate crimes in Europe committed by Muslims. And the rest of the video talked about the crime statistics in Sweden and how it is related to open borders. Here is a video that talks about the crisis in Germany. DIRECT QUESTION:If there is no rape crisis in Europe, then how come so many women are marching against sexual assault in Europe. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MxCsnykY_PM

5. I don’t know the answer to why there is not a rape crisis, but it could be that the immigrants are not from the most dangerous Muslim countries. I really doubt that they are first generation immigrants.

6. It is warfare to help the persecuted Christians in the Middle East and a war of women’s liberation. Resistance will be prevented by having the military patrol the streets. And how is forcing women and minority rights upon the Middle East tyranny? It is stopping the tyranny of Sharia law. Muslims will be allowed to practice their faith, but they will not be allowed to force their religion on others. Christians will be allowed to preach their faith.

They get to give people a chance to bitch about abortions AND Catholics at the same time, guess they can't pass that up.

I'd say "watch this one get a ton of comments"....but, no, there's nothing about homosexuals in it, so that probably won't happen.
