No, the Romans fought the Romans. Some believed in Jesus, some believed in Zeus. The new Christian Roman emperor was Christian because Christianity was rising in popularity. He managed to get into power via the usual political dealings and that was it. But then he was deposed and replaced by another emperor who brought back the old theology. Then he was deposed himself by yet another Christian emperor.
And if you think all this was done by swapping apple pies, teddy bears and cuddles then you are seriously deluded.
By the way, what "atheist" were you referring to?
Dreaming and lying again. How did the persecuted Christians managed to swap powers?

Those who believe Jesus was resurrected say Jesus founded it,
which would be true if the resurrection was.
Sorry Charlie, nobody ever came back from dead, and if they did...
you would run away as fast as you could.

Atheists are well-behaved and we seem to play well with others overall.
Atheists are not in the news, like the Christian right, for getting caught doing things they tell others not to do. You know…those nasty little sexual things.
Atheists almost always co-exist peacefully with religious believing family and friends.
Atheists pay taxes just like the religious believers do.
Atheists are waaay under represented in jails and prisons…we’re actually pretty moral people.
Atheists don’t start wars on behalf of atheism…unlike religion.
They do join the military however, and contrary to clichéd belief, they are found in foxholes.
Atheists believe strongly in America and the whole American Constitution, but particularly the First Amendment that separates church and state.
Atheists are secularists who support a government free from influence by any religion. We are not anti-religious, we are Non-Religious.
Atheists don’t take up a lot of space. The non-religious/atheist/agnostic members of American society only add up to a little less than 18% of the whole population…but we are growing.
Atheists make good neighbors. Chances are, if you live next door, or work with an atheist, you will never know it.
Atheists in general, are much more supportive of women’s rights and for their right to control their own bodies and lives without church or state interference.
Unlike the religious right people, atheists don’t like to get into other peoples business and dictate how they should live….what they should do or not do. You know…like who you should marry.
Atheists are not known for going door-to-door to convert people to our way of thinking. We are however, known to help our friends and neighbors with no thought of there being a heavenly reward in it for us.
Unlike many of the present Republican presidential candidates and the religious right in general Atheists do not advocate or align themselves with groups who want to take over our government and reshape America into a religiously ruled theocracy…you know, kinda’ like the Middle Eastern Islamic states.
Atheists, unlike the Republican Right, the Tea-Party, and the religious right, do not go around with guns in meetings and say the President will never take their guns away, or wishing the president would fail and generally disrespecting the President and the office. Or call him ni_ger behind his back.
Atheists mostly do know a lot about religion, as many were raised in a religious family, and they tend to research and know their positions really well. In recent national polling about religious knowledge, atheists knew more than any religious sub-group.
Hmmm…could it be…could the atheists actually be better citizens and better people to know than theists??? I know I never disrespect, with malice, someone for believing the ‘wrong thing’…I just like to get into friendly arguments/debates with them.
And remember…Atheism cures religious terrorism
Nicely put, sir! Permission to steal bits, with attribution?

They do have a chance, God does not want anyone to perish( 1 Tim 2:4 and 2 Pet 3:9) but each one of us have a choice. But we must repent unless we likewise perish Luke 13:3.Seems like 2 Thess 1:7-9 would be a wake up call for anyone.

Christ is the savior of the body,(his church)one cannot be saved without being part of HIS church. Col 1:18, Eph 1:18-21, Eph 5:23. One living a good life is not enough for them to have eternal salvation.

Christianity had gradually grew in popularity over the centuries. It was inevitable that someone with political power would be Christian. One of those was managed to become emperor.

Then it swapped back.

Then it swapped back again.

Meaning either your first divine intervention wasn't good enough the first time so God needed to intervene again, or he only intervened once but it took a number of years before it finally took hold.

Then as we know, Rome eventually collapsed.

This is how weak you're making your god look.

I for one don't have a problem.(shrug)

If God exists then we don't have a choice.

You failed to address this the first time. That was weeks ago on another thread. Something tells me you won't now.

Referencing scripture might make you feel better, but preaching stuff you can't back up to people who aren't interested in anything unless you can back it up only makes you look ignorant.

Self defence is only right if you give your enemy every chance to do the right thing, if at all possible. Jesus gave a teaching concerning a man who rented out a vinyard and in the end the person who rented the land had to be destroyed, because of his bad actions.

but that is not what your god was saying, was it? or do you not even know your own cult's teachings?

your mythical god has condoned killing people soley because they do not believe in him in all three of his cults.

you are worshiping the god of the jihadists...good luck with that!
