It's quite simple. Liars and murderers are not Christians no matter how many times they or you say they are.

19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

<quoted text>
Why then is it that all of the people who burned witches professed faith in Jesus? All of the witch hunters in Europe and the American colonies were professed Christians who had certainly read the New Testament.
“…the cause of eliminating the supposed Satanic witches from society was taken up by a number of individuals…”– Robert W. Thurston, Professor of History at Miami University ,“The Rise and Fall of the Witch Hunts in Europe and North America”
“It is true... most of the men of learning in Europe, have given up all accounts of witches and apparitions as mere old wives' fables. I am sorry for it…Giving up witchcraft is, in effect, giving up the Bible.”- John Wesley, Anglican cleric and Christian theologian, founder of the Methodist movement, Journal, 1768
witch craft exists..and is against Gods word..for sure.

but the primary work of a Christian is to reconcile a sinner to Christ

That is our message of reconciliation.

God tells us not to take vengeance.." vengeance is mine says Jehovah'

Jesus is our model to follow closely...if we look at him, his ministry was one of preaching healing and expelling demons.

When Paul came upon a girl with a spirit of divination in her, he commanded the evil spirit to leave her.

So Jesus if he came across anyone 'witchy' I suspect he would expel the wicked spirit from them [ in the case of the fellow with legion'

That is what Jesus did..men on the other hand, back in the witch hunt days would have killed him out of fear.

So its how Jesus would act isn't it...not how anyone calling themselves Christian act..because god tells us , there is only one name by which we may be saved..and that is Jesus Christ.

We are to follow him, not get in line and follow a Christian who is following him...that Christian could lead you up the garden path

Are you a Christian, do you believe Jesus is God?

So not everything in the Bible should be taken literally and real Christians know this and bad Christians don't?

So Christians should not follow Bible passage Exodus 22:18?

Today is the day of salvation...today is the day to be saved....

Jesus comes with a message of forgiveness and reconciliation...

Those who don't accept the offer are under the wrath of God.

It is God who pours out his wrath on unbelievers..

Men are suffering men are dying ..the more knowledge the medical practitioners gain, the more people are suffering with cancers sickness new viral outbreaks, wars and terrorism..

There is no peace my God has said for the wicked.

Wrath of God remains on all who do not receive his forgiveness in the blood of Jesus.

Forgiveness from what – the sins of our imaginary originators? Even ordinary human beings do not hold innocent children accountable for the wrongdoings of their parents.

Anger (wrath) is the product of frustration and many ordinary human beings have learned to deal with frustrations without fits of anger. The “God” you believe in is not above the ordinary human failing of dealing with frustrations through anger? Also one would think it not possible for an omnipotent “God” to be frustrated.

Medical science has done more to relieve human suffering than faith. In the 14th century Europe experienced a deadly outbreak of the Black Death, the bubonic plague, killing 25% to 50% of the population. One method for avoiding the Black Death suggested by men of faith was to carve the symbol of the cross onto the front door of a house with the words "Lord have mercy on us" near it. It had no effect. Medical science has all but eradicated the disease.
There is no peace my God has said for the wicked.

Not only does the “God” you believe in get frustrated and deal with those frustrations with anger “He” apparently needs blood sacrifice in order to placate “His” ego. Your “God” is way too petty for me. I cannot believe in a “God” who acts just like a frustrated medieval tyrant.
