<quoted text>So it seems you and others take the word of some hayseed academics over the word of God. It is your choice.
yet your 'word of god' has been proven to be lies time and time again. what does that tell you? are you so indoctrinated into your cult that you cannot acknowledge that well known fact?

Actually, we are not walking in a minefield, you have just been programed by your pastors and Bible teachers to see others who are non-Christians and not interested in your silly religion as "walking in a minefield."
The problem is with your perception, not with us.
But a minefield is a demonstrably real thing.

But we're told also that Satan can disguise himself a s an angel of light, so maybe all your pastors and your Bible churches are deluded products of a demon disguised as an angel of light.

I mean, how would you KNOW, if you are deluded, right?

I don't drink Kool-Aid nor do I believe in your myths and delusions. Your spells and incantations have no affect on me.

The apostle John wrote for us the "test" to determine who is or is not legitmate. You are right Satan can disquise himself as an agnel of light. Look at all the denominations that sprang out of the original church, that was done by false teachersand doctrines. and those who did not know scripture and were led astray due to their own lack of study to spot false doctrines.

Considering what a horrid moral guide the bible is, that would seem the most sane answer...

outside of the fact that the whole thing is a myth...

The book of Acts mentions Simon the sorcerer but he did not teach christisans. Just show me in scripture the spells and canting you are talking about. I never read of any in New Testament worship.

The Book of Harry Potter is also about sorcerers and is just as fictional.

What is the difference between a priest's/pastor's 'blessing' and a witch's "spell" for good luck?

Prayer is an incantation, it is the very structure of incantations used by all pagan religions. Yes, you are spell casting when you pray.

Yeah... I was looking for Patriot's answer, but it looks like he thought better of it and decided to skip it.... or maybe he's trying to figure out a way to make them appear to be different
