I imagine that it was going on long before the Roman Era in one form or another. Look at how Antiochus Epiphanies tried to stamp out Second Temple Judaism.
Read the first couple of chapters of 1 Maccabees.
Ok, I will. Cheers X :)

I know some of the missionaries that go to Africa, PNG and India and they don't say things like that, neither do any of the Christians I've met here and neither do I. A lot of those missionaries also use their own funds and are Teachers or Medical Professionals who do a lot of good for unfortunate, very ill people, regardless of whether they want to hear about Christ or not. America is not the world.

Notice how she slams our country while defending her faith; what's with that??
Who said anything about slamming your country? Another assumption. What I meant was that all the Christians in the world don't act like the ones I keep reading about and that are on television, from the US. Sometimes it seems that it's assumed by a lot of Americans on topix. Christianity is a very different culture here and in many other countries.

So, you're becoming an America basher because you're mad at me?

I'm not mad at you, I just don't see the point in discussing this with you anymore, I was told you'd turn on me as soon as I disagreed with you, now I know. I didn't write that article so I'm not sure how posting it is 'America bashing', it was part of the links I posted, you didn't accuse me of Nigeria or PNG bashing either, interesting.

And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
this passage alone re-iterates the idea of the potential for numerous christs
Romans 8:11
But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
the new jerusalem from revelation is a reference to the physical body; which is the temple of the most high
Matthew 5:14
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
the ark was a pattern of the physical body and the holy of holies is an expression of entering into the inner sanctum to commune with the absolute; which is an expression of samadhi.

I also assist in surgery, I take and develop x-rays, I administer and maintain general anesthetics, I prepare and sterilize surgical packs, I perform minor non-sterile surgeries, dentistry, parasitology, I run the vaccine clinic, and I console clients whose pets were terminal.
As for cleaning shit out of cages every day, that always reminds me of you.
What is it you said you do for a living? You sit in an office, post here and rip off your boss?
When we as humans confine animals we are responsible to care for them. This extends beyond Veterinary Clinics to Farmers and all pet owners.
The function of cleaning up after them is only a small part of the overall care that comes with that responsibility.
Those who would try to belittle anyone who has that responsibility are not worthy of any recognition or respect...but you already knew that.

<quoted text>I agree beliefs for the most part are subjective and personal. However there is a right or wrong imo as far as is the information someone basing it on accurate? There are a lot of people who have simply taken someone else's word that the Bible says what it says. And there are times the information taught simply is not in the Bible. Now I understand even that can be somewhat subjective at times but for something as important as beliefs should be to the believer, my point is how do they not at least come to them on their own? I would never leave the fate of my soul to someone else and hope they did their homework.And the percentage that someones human teacher is right on everything is prob zero. Thats reason enough for someone to check for themselves.(T) PEACE

Seeing as the majority of US citizens refer to themselves as Christians, of course they will be the majority of perpetrators.
Just like the majority of muders in Italy are commited by Catholics, in Iran by Muslims, in India by Hindi, In Indonesia by Guddhists, etc.
e
in the US prison system, christians are statistically over represented.

(and atheists, under-represented)

There was no Christ, Bob.

There likely was an historical Jesus.

But his story mostly is fiction, first memorialized in Mark and then copied in Matthew and Luke. John's relationship with the synoptic gospels is a little murky, yet it sure is as fictional.

But I believe the latest additions to John, the Pericope de Adultera and John's second ending originated in the unredacted version of longer Mark.

Don't hate me for knowing the truth, Bob.
