Lots of Christians have been deceived with Christmas, Easter and Halloween. They are guilty
of following "family tradition" - their parents celebrated those days, their grandparents celebrated those days, and so forth.
But in reality? All three of those days have pagan origins - but there are ALOT of them now who know the truth and STILL choose to continue to celebrate those days.
I've quit celebrating them - for God. Yep I was raised to celebrate them, but now I can see that my parents/grandparents/etc were deceived - by guess who - satan.
Are you a child?

Seriously, you can't blame the Devil for everything. When Christianity spread they simply replaced existing holidays with Christian names, that does not make them evil.

In fact there is nothing any more evil about pagan religions than there is of the Christian one. The only evil comes from applying those religions.

To each his own on his or her beliefs. I stick to mine as I believe them.

It's really that simple - no need to complicate things. It comes down to God vs satan. And we all have to choose who we are going to follow.

Not that there was never a bad atheist. It seems there are fewer bad atheists than bad Christians, that is if U.S. prison populations are any indicator.

He may have "claimed" to be a Christian - that doesn't necessarily make him one, though.

He ended up choosing to serve satan - that much is obvious.

Now you are just being silly. I am sure that in his heart he thought he was doing "God's Will". That is one of the biggest problems with religion.

That is a false dichotomy. You really need to work on your thought processes.

Atheists do neither.

But then atheism is not a religion. Now that we are in the age of reason religion is one of the biggest evils on the face of the Earth.

God has already dealt with satan - and sentenced him. But He is allowing him to test us to see who is going to follow him -and who is going to follow Him/God.
How many Christians are in the world? I have no idea - I never counted them.:)
Did you ever just stop, stand back, and look at that story and realize how stupid it is??

Evolution is a LIE!!!! Creation was admitted by the guy who created evolution to be real. That his evolution was a lie. He admitted it. No WAY God could let his Creation be thrown away like that, just by a fat, juicy lie!!!

It has nothing to do with who "I" like or don't like. It has to do with if the person follows God and His Word. If he does, he's a true Christian.
If he doesn't, then he is not.
I judge (yes, "judge") by God's standards - not my likes or dislikes.
i.e. The Bible tells us to judge 'righteously" - that is another part of the Bible that is used out of context continually - the notion that we aren't supposed to judge. The Bible says that His people (Christians) will judge the angels in Heaven.
So just who is it that is determining that some group is not following the proper 'protocol' and therefore is NOT a Christian??

Is it you, and if so, what do you base your evaluation on??

I happen to know that almost ALL of the fundamentalist denominations say THEY are the only true Christians.

Why do you think this is??

Surely they can't all be right.

All of us are sinners - me, you, our neighbors, congress, celebrities, etc - NONE of us will ever be perfect until Jesus comes back. And then those who chose to pick up the Cross and follow Him, will be free of all worldly sin and evil - but the ones who chose not to pick up that Cross - well, their fate will be sealed, I'm afraid.
That's not what "I" say - but what God says. I think God is looking for commitment - not perfection since none of us can ever achieve that in our earthly bodies. But we can't just live in an "anything goes" kind of world and expect to be rewarded with Heaven. It just doesn't work that way.
Why would I have sin??

I am not a sinner.

Now that would all depend on the view of the world from your eyes.
It is a fact that most of Germany were in fact Christians.
They themselves believed they were serving the lord in their endeavors from their perspective, just as you think you are.
What you fail to realize in understanding how Germany became the way they did, is that they were motivated by the writings of another German reformer Martin Luther. Who was very much against the Jewish people and by his writing they thought it was the will of god for them to exterminate the Jews.

lol no - I've been online since 97. I just try to understand that all of us - ALL of us - are all struggling to get through this life and to try to find answers as we go. I see so many people who are being misled by satan - and it breaks my heart. I was misled for about 35 years - until God opened my eyeballs to the Truth - His truth. And trust me when I say that it will change your life.
You bought a made up non-answer, sadly, one that has made you delusional.

Oh, some of us have managed to retain one.

Many of the fundies seem to be irremediably dull, though.
