curious, I don't care what name you post under. It really doesn't matter. I was just ribbing you.
Do you believe President Obama is a Christian?
I will be able to answer that question , although it was not addressed to me , but was in response to something I posted

Obama was up in Buffalo today.
Gave a speech at University of Buffalo , which I attended with my son.
Had a chance to speak with him .
He assured me he is a Christian.
He did admit to having converted from Jewish to a Black man.
Showed me his birth certificate.
His birth name was Baruch Bamstein , which at his conversion he changed to Barack Obama.

Just to clarify and improve your educational forays...

Babylon was a civilization that existed from around 1900 BC to about 1600 BC

The Dark Ages were around 480 AD to 1070 AD

Gee , I am surprised you did not know that.
That answer will not be found by studying old rocks.
I do believe that him whom I have accepted as my Lord and saviour instructed us that false prophets would arise and by their fruits ye shall know them.
Something you may not be able to grasp , since you have an uncanny ability in not being able to separate truth from fiction.

Hey , Duquette
As you have stated " This is your hobby , as with the other atheists that infest this website.
You are here to agitate and instigate with your boorish insights into human nature.
You will reap what you sow.
The poison you all concoct with your ludicrous philosophy , is the same drink that may quench your thirst as you gleefully sing"
Kool aid ,kool aid taste great , We want kool aid , can't wait.
The theme song for that false and deceptive teacher ,Jim Jones.
I thought your argument was Atheist were the vile, evil ones, yet your post reflects the mindset of the Christian/Preacher/Teacher Jim Jones. Explain to me how the murder of hundreds in the Jim Jones incident differs from the Murder of thousands of children of Israel?

Still dodging my question. I don't care what the Bible says, I want to know what you think.
And why is god so impotent he has to let the devil run the world for 6000 years? I thought he was all powerful.
Now, how do YOU feel about raped babies in a world with an all powerful, all loving, and all knowing god?
You seriously need to have a Bible study with Jehovah's Witnesses. The study is free with no obligation. You can discontinue the study anytime you want. If after a reasonable amount of time you are not convinced that what you are learning is indeed the truth then by all means discontinue it. But for your own sake don't allow anyone else to decide for you.
You will get answers to such questions as: Why has God let the devil run the world for 6000 years?

So your answer is that you have to wait until the false ones kill off their flock to know? Jim and Tammy had 1.2 Million sending them cash so they could put AC in their dog house, Jim Jones got 900 to kill themselves and their children.... From what you are saying is that everyone of the preachers, priests, profits in the assorted 1000's of evangelical and cloister groups could be false and you would never know it until you see their fruit... Since some large number of believers have been duped by such false profits (can name at least 30 off hand in my life time) then it seems that a majority of you folks can't tell your fruits from your vegetables...

You guys should really get a good hand shake... At least the Amish got those kewl hats and bonnets, and the Jews got those spiffy beanies...

You would believe his version and not mine.
As an aside; Why do you want to know , anyhow?

How can a person know which religion is right?
(1) On what are its teachings based? Are they from God, or are they largely from men?(2 Tim. 3:16; Mark 7:7) Ask, for example: Where does the Bible teach that God is a Trinity? Where does it say that the human soul is immortal?
(2) Consider whether it is making known the name of God. Jesus said in prayer to God:“I have made your name manifest to the men you gave me out of the world.”(John 17:6) He declared:“It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.”(Matt. 4:10) Has your religion taught you that ‘it is Jehovah you must worship’? Have you come to know the Person identified by that name—his purposes, his activities, his qualities—so that you feel you can confidently draw close to him?
(3) Is true faith in Jesus Christ being demonstrated? This involves appreciation of the value of the sacrifice of Jesus’ human life and of his position today as heavenly King.(John 3:36; Ps. 2:6-8) Such appreciation is shown by obeying Jesus—sharing personally and zealously in the work that he assigned to his followers. True religion has such faith that is accompanied by works.—Jas. 2:26.
(4) Is it largely ritualistic, a formality, or is it a way of life? God strongly disapproves of religion that is merely a formalism.(Isa. 1:15-17) True religion upholds the Bible’s standard of morality and clean speech instead of weakly going along with popular trends.(1 Cor. 5:9-13; Eph. 5:3-5) Its members reflect the fruits of God’s spirit in their lives.(Gal. 5:22, 23) So, those who adhere to true worship can be identified because they sincerely endeavor to apply Bible standards in their lives not only at their places of meeting but in their family life, at their secular work, in school, and in recreation.
(5) Do its members truly love one another? Jesus said:“By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love among yourselves.”(John 13:35) Such love reaches across racial, social, and national boundaries, drawing people together in genuine brotherhood. So strong is this love that it sets them apart as being truly different. When the nations go to war, who have enough love for their Christian brothers in other lands that they refuse to take up arms and kill them? That is what early Christians did.
(6) Is it truly separate from the world? Jesus said that his true followers would be “no part of the world.”(John 15:19) To worship God in a manner that he approves requires that we keep ourselves “without spot from the world.”(Jas. 1:27) Can that be said of those whose clergy and other members are involved in politics, or whose lives are largely built around materialistic and fleshly desires?—1 John 2:15-17.
(7) Are its members active witnesses concerning God’s Kingdom? Jesus foretold:“This good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come.”(Matt. 24:14) What religion is really proclaiming God’s Kingdom as the hope of mankind instead of encouraging people to look to human rulership to solve their problems? Has your religion equipped you to share in this activity, and to do it from house to house as Jesus taught his apostles to do?—Matt. 10:7, 11-13; Acts 5:42; 20:20.

I'm not aware that Q rides.

why do I want to know...well now, because knowledge is power; i.e. the more knowledge a person gains of another's thoughts and impressions, the more power they acquire!

Wouldn't you agree?

P.s. why are you here copying and pasting as pre school children do in Title 1.

That does not answer the question... All it says is about the same as the Supreme's say about porno... You know it when you see it... So until one of the goof balls pass around the punch and tell you to follow them to the promise land... or slip on this fancy vest with all the colorful wires and battery for a express pass ... You will follow about anyone that says what you already think they should say....

I've asked this of you once before and you didn't answer. Will you give me an answer this time? Your own organization rejected its founder and first two presidents for the first 63 years of its existence - over 50% of the time they have existed. So why would you think anyone else would put stock in an organization with such piracy among the ranks? Tell me again how Jesus visited your organization in 1919 and hand picked your society as the channel of communication to man?

It is called discernment. If it is not Biblical, beware.

In my view Jim and Tammy Baker were not preaching the Gospel.
They were raising money , not to help the needy , but , to build Hotels restaurants and apartment buildings.
That would be a huge warning sign to anyone to beware.
That is not what Jesus called his disciples to do.Not Biblical
Jim Jones claimed to be Jesus incarnate. Jesus warned us about these false prophets. The moment an individual claims to be Jesus BEWARE. When a preacher wants to move you to Guyana because your church is being investigated by the authorities BEWARE.Not Biblical
Same applies to David Korech.
When a televangelist tells you to donate to his church because God will reward you 10 fold BEWARE.. Not Biblical
Give or lend , without expecting anything in return.
The Lord ,loves a Cheerful giver.
So no, you need not wait till the flock gets killed off.
God provided you with a brain to be used wisely , not as a hatrack...
