I doubt it. I'll bet it thinned them.

Christianity would have been forgotten long ago without the help of a series of imperialistic governments compelling people to accept it.

people are free moral agents to do good or evil. If God stepped in every time someone plots evil, then that person free will have been taken away.
Not at all. If I the police stepped in to foil some "evil" plot, would the conspirators have lost their freewill, or merely had its expression thwarted? Obviously, free will doesn't mean the ability to express that will.

What do you think free will means? How would you know if you had free will or not? What would it be like if your will were programmed into you? Would it still be free? Would it feel any different that it does now.

If you study this matter a little, you'll discover that you really don't know just what you mean by free will, and have no way to determine whether it exists. For all we know, our wills are determined by neural electrochemical processes, and are in principle as predictable as eclipses.

God allows evil doers to prevail sometimes, God allows good to prevail sometimes. One man does evil kidnaps 3 girls for 10yrs. Another man do good by giving part of his kidney to save the life of a stranger.
Exactly the same as if there were no god. How shrewd of it to always do exactly what a nonexistent god would do.

No. Perfect would be if there were no will to hate in the world.

Look at how deformed your thinking is under the influence of your church.

You're criticizing another poster's comprehension? How clueless can you be?
You wrote "gentile" for "genital" and then missed it when it was shown back to you.
And you've yet to comprehend that addiction is psychological and dependence is physiological despite being told repeatedly. These are both just in the last day or two.
And it's a recurrent problem for you. How many times have I had to call you out on your abysmal reading comprehension? These are all examples of your useless mind in action from just the last three months or so:

What's funny to me is that when you can't do that with me, you phrase it along the lines that you can't be bothered. Obviously you are lying again.
Dependence is addiction

When I went to our equivalent to your John Edwards (Anthony, from Whispers from Beyond), he gave me messages from several of my ancestors who had passed over, and there were no doubts about who he was referring to :) I still have the rose in my closet of treasures as a reminder of that special time in my life.....

Gee TAINT, seems like National hotlines, doctors, medical dictionaries, treatment centers, etc all understand it is a PHYSICAL ADDICTION also. Man it must have been a joy to have been a patient of yours when you were too prideful and stubborn to admit you messed up or were too ignorant and blamed your patients for not following your instructions

Maybe now that you are retired you can learn to be a well-informed doctor that actually knows important things about the medicine he prescribed? I mean it won't help all the lives you probably helped ruin, assuming if anybody got addicted it was their fault for being weak, but hey at least you got their money right?

Thank you, it's easy to take it on when I've death with similar insults on other topics all my life.
Nothing can really get through the skin I've developed for this.

I also enjoy showing how vile these "loving" people can be.

Today's Prayer

Oh Lord, Help me be strong and courageous. Empower, lift up, and encourage me that I will not be terrified of any thing, person nor circumstance, neither let me be discouraged, for You, the Lord my God will be with me wherever I go (Joshua 1:9). No matter what I face today, I know that You are with me and Your Holy Spirit lives within me and has sealed me unto the day of redemption. I know that the blood of Jesus has covered my sin and washed me white as snow, that I may be righteous in Him and live unto Him. I praise You and thank You Lord Almighty for Your strength, power, grace, mercy, and love. May You be glorified in all the earth, and through my life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

Sometimes you write postings that appear to me to be very cruel towards others, and other times you write postings that have kindness within them. It gives me the impression you are fighting within yourself, and in my opinion, you should just let some of those things go and give them to GOD.
I agree Serah...I think he is confused....Give his hatred to God to deal with it.....

We fully understand that you and others believe that Paul is God.

Rarely do you refer to anything except Paul's letters and call it "God's words".

Hi Skom.
God's Word clearly explains why Mark and those of his ilk (and there are many of them posting in here lately) are the way they are, and why they are blind to the truth.
1st Timothy 4:1-2.
1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
2nd Thessalonians 2:1-12.
1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,
2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?
6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:
9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,
10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
