I suggest you don't allow the Wiccans to fool you into believing they have re-claimed their ancient Pagan history.

They will preach at you that the goddess loves everybody ... but those ancient Pagan theologians taught that their religions were ruled by blood-thirsty gods that needed human and other animal sacrifices to satiate their lusts.

Wicca is a religion based on fluff, and nothing BUT fluff.

However. I never argued that my beliefs were right when I was in religion. I simply stated at all times that what I believed was my "concept" of truth.
I used to have a habit of writing "Just my belief" at the bottom of each post, until that also irritated readers and other posters, and I stopped that habit.

I do not know that Jews INVENTED concept of Monotheism?
What is your definition of a Jew any way?
Muslims are not, ARE NOT, the children of the promise.

Genesis 17:17-22, " 17 Then Abraham fell on his face and laughed and said to himself,“Shall a child be born to a man who is a hundred years old? Shall Sarah, who is ninety years old, bear a child?” 18 And Abraham said to God,“Oh that Ishmael might live before you!” 19 God said,“No, but Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac. I will establish my covenant with him as an everlasting covenant for his offspring after him. 20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and multiply him greatly. He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation. 21 "BUT I WILL ESTABLISH MY COVENANT WITH ISAAC, WHOM SARAH SHALL BEAR TO YOU AT THIS TIME NEXT YEAR.” 22 When he had finished talking with him, God went up from Abraham."

Genesis 22:1-2, 1 "After these things God tested Abraham and said to him,“Abraham!” And he said,“Here I am.” 2 He said,“Take your son, your ONLY son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah, and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains of which I shall tell you.”

Hebrews 11:17, " By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was in the act of offering up his ONLY son."

Muslims believe that scribes later corrupted the original reading from Ishmael to Isaac.

Since this idea stems from the Muslim misunderstanding of the phrase "only son", it becomes necessary to explain what this phrase exactly means in relation to Isaac. A careful reading of the Holy Bible shows that the phrase is used to affirm Isaac's unique status, a status based on the following:

Isaac was the only promised child of Abraham, a fact which the Quran agrees with (cf. Genesis 17:15-21; Surah 11:69-73, 37:112-113, 51:24-30). Ishmael was never a promised child.

Isaac was conceived miraculously to a barren mother and a very aged father, with the Quran likewise agreeing (cf. Genesis 17:15-17, 18:9-15, 21:1-7; Galatians 4:28-29; Surah 11:69-73, 51:24-30). Ishmael was conceived normally without the need of any miraculous intervention.

God promised that it would be Isaac's descendants who would inherit the land given to Abraham.(Genesis 13:14-18, 15:18-21, 28:13-14). Ishmael had no part in the inheritance and promise given to Isaac through Abraham.

It is for these reasons that Isaac is called Abraham's only son since God himself reckoned him as the child of promise and blessings, an honor never bestowed upon Ishmael.

Galatians 4:28, "And you, dear brothers and sisters, are children of the promise, just like Isaac."

Hindus have their own theologically written "evidence" outside of their literature, that their savior Krishna (whose name at an earlier time in history was Chrishna) also exists.

Those in religion are FUNNY that way!

here is what we get from Islam today. This is what the peaceful religion has evolved to: BAGHDAD (AP)-- Militants in Iraq targeted Christians in three separate Christmas Day bombings in Baghdad, killing at least 37 people, officials said Wednesday.

In one attack, a car bomb went off near a church in the capital's southern Dora neighborhood, killing at least 26 people and wounding 38, a police officer said.

Earlier, two bombs ripped through a nearby outdoor market simultaneously in the Christian section of Athorien, killing 11 people and wounding 21, the officer said.

The Iraq-based leader of the Chaldean Catholic Church, Louis Sako, said the parked car bomb exploded after Christmas Mass and that none of the worshippers were hurt. Sako said he didn't believe the church was the target.

Contradictions in Muk's hole book:

Who suffers loss if Muhammad was wrong? Sura 34:50 commands Muhammad to say, "If I go astray, I go astray only to my own loss," which is a severe factual error in the Qur'an as well as contradicting the teaching of the Qur'an in a number of other verses.
Allah, Adam, and the Angels. There are a great number of problems and inconsistencies between the several accounts of Adam's creation, Allah's command to prostrate before Adam, Satans refusal, etc.
Who Was the First Muslim? Muhammad [6:14, 163], Moses [7:143], some Egyptians [26:51], or Abraham [2:127-133, 3:67] or Adam, the first man who also received inspiration from Allah [2:37]?
Can Allah be seen and did Muhammad see his Lord? Yes [S. 53:1-18, 81:15-29], No [6:102-103, 42:51].

You don't have to belittle Islam in the hopes that it will make Christianity appear as a religion of peace.

Christian Militias On The Rise; A New Crusade Coming

By Ted on November 10, 2013 in General

In Syria, Christian fighters have taken up arms and have formed various garrisons, defending numerous villages. Here is a video of a militia in the Christian pilgrimage center of Saidnaya:

It was in the area of Saidnaya where, for centuries, Christians, have been making pilgrimages to worship the God who “hath shewed strength with his arm” and “hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.”(Luke 1:51) Even Crusaders in Medieval times visited this city to venerate the God who “teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight”(Psalm 144:1). And now the Muslims want to take it, but the Christians, these modern day Crusaders, are not suffering them to do so.

One Syrian Christian militia, which calls itself The Lions of the Canyon, are so far protecting over thirty villages, and this militant order will only grow as the fighting intensifies.

In Iraq there are various Christian militias who are fighting the slaves of Allah and the acolytes of Antichrist, as this video shows here:

Both Christians and Muslims refer to each other as the evil ones that serve the devil ... and vile religious history has taught them nothing but to keep on killing each other, while in turn, they all preach gospels of supposed love.

Humans have no common sense.

Over-stimulated emotion rules by erratic imagination.

The Muslim religion was not CREATED UNTIL HUNDREDS,OF YEARS ,AFTER JESUS,

the children of Ishmael were not the Jews ..though they may have worshipped ABRAHAMS,GOD ..until they worshipped other gods..

Many ARABS, were Chrisian until Mohamed came around establishing his,religion..
