I wasn't joking. A lot of people disrespect the name of God on topix, I wasn't sure what it meant, which is why I asked.

<quoted text>apparently that was only temporary during the 70's. canada since has divested itself from petrocan.
however thanks for the info. i didn't know that canada had at one time nationalized its oil industry.
the rest of the countries that have nationalized don't have a very good record of putting the profits back to infrastructure or the general welfare of the people.
Ecuador
Iran
Iraq
Libya
Nigeria
Saudi Arabia
Venezuela
Argentina
Mexico
Russia
Actually, PetroCan was around from 1975 until 2009. It was privatized in 1990-91(although the govt kept a 19% stake in it) and finally completely sold off to Suncor in 2009.

Why on earth would you ask me that, what if I did? Is it one way? I was wondering, that's all. You certainly seem to have a problem with 'Freedom of Speech', unless it's your own.

Catholicism is under the Pentagram and Hexagram; nothing to do with Christianity. They are the recreation of the Babylonian religion since their inception in 313AD.

Amazing; non-Christians talk about what they know nothing about. Like folks talking about the Muslims and never have lived in their countries or lived with them.

Quite confusing religion with spirituality. People are quite capable of having a relationship with God without buying into the dogmatic horsepuckey.

I wasn't the one all fired up to get all offended by something I wasn't sure whether to be offended by or not.
If you have to ask then you're just looking for reasons to be offended, and that's kind'a sad.

It is isn't it?

When people WANT to be defensive, they are looking for a fight, IMHO.

Practice Pure Religion
Lev 18-20, Matt 6:9-18, Ps 71:1-16, Pr 2:1-2
'Pure...religion before God... is this...' James 1:27

Jesus said about every act of kindness you show toward someone who's hurting or in need:'...You did it to Me.'(Matthew 25:40) Wow! Maybe next time you're too busy to show concern, that'll make you stop and think. Jesus told one man,'...Sell what you have and give it to the poor...[then] follow Me.'(Matthew 19:21) This man could've blessed many others, and even been numbered among Christ's disciples, but it didn't happen because he was self-focused. Jesus told another story about a rich man who died and went to hell. Now, he didn't go there because he was rich. The only sin he was charged with was selfishness. He allowed a poor man to sit on his doorstep with wounds untended, his body ill-clad, his stomach empty, and did nothing about it (Luke 16:19-31). On the other hand, Zacchaeus, who overcharged others in order to enrich himself, saw the folly of his ways, renounced selfishness and made a decision to follow Jesus (Luke 19:1-10). The story's told of an angel visiting a wealthy man who happened to be on his deathbed. After the man listed all the things he'd like to take to Heaven with him, the angel informed him,'You can only take what you have given away.' Don't wait until the eve of your departure to give; experience the joy and reward of it-now.'Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble.' So today, practise pure religion!

There is no Christian religion that is not based on the Sacred Word of God.

Your view of Christianity tells it all regards your relationship with God.

I think he's saying anyone can read the Bible and have a relationship with god. You don't need to add religious dogma to do so...?

religious: Having or showing belief in and reverence for God or a deity.
dogma:(Christian Religious Writings / Theology) a religious doctrine or system of doctrines proclaimed by ecclesiastical authority as true
If that be so..
A. He does not believe nor does he show reverence for God.
B. He does not believe in any religious doctrines proclaimed by ecclesiastical authority as true.
You referring to God as god also shows your degree of reverence for God..
