After 2 major incidents in one year in the UK people are fed up with radicalised Islam and the bloody mayhem that it spawns wherever it raises its ugly head.
Muslims continually protest to me that Islam is better than this and these guys are rogues. But are they telling their own people this? If they are they seem deeply ineffective at the task.
So why aren't Muslim leaders doing more to stop murderers of children and innocents?
Why aren't they telling the radicals that move amongst them and are often known to them that their ideology is sending suicide bombers and those who promote them straight to hell.
Manchester attack: Salman Abedi named as bomber by police - BBC News
I find this a fascinating subject; what has inspired me today is this: What Is the Abomination of Desolation?
I do not agree with every thing said in this video but it is a starting point for a conversation.
There are two parts, the abomination and the desolation
Using the info provided by UCG, the Greek king orders the Jews to stop keeping the Law and to do things the Law forbids; this was repeated during the inquisitions when people were forbidden from keeping the Sabbath; I expect the Law of God to be forbidden again. But is God concerned with what the Pagans do, or is the abomination to do with the Jews abandoning God.
In the example of the Jews rebuilding the Temple and practicing the Law in the superseded manner that denies...
I have a friend who wants to receive the Holy Spirit. He says he does not know how to do it. I have prayed with him and told him he must keep asking for it. Is there a sure fire way that I do not know of..... to receive the Holy Spirit. I should add that he does have mental illness and would this get in the way of receiving the Holy Spirit? I do not think so, but he seems to be blocked. He goes to church more often than me and wants to be a Christian.
'Two explosions' heard at Ariana Grande concert in Manchester
Some are saying they heard loud explosion and concert goers streaming out covered in blood.
Story is too early to corroborate this.
A good friend of mine (who is Pentacostal) has some very confused ideas about what Catholics believe. I mentioned to him that there are people who call themselves "Christian Wiccans" and believe that Mary is a goddess, and he said that it sounds like they've got some Catholic ideology behind them. I'm like, uh, Catholics don't think that Mary is a goddess. He said, "They think she's the Queen Of Heaven and the mother of God. So yeah, they kinda do." He thinks that, while Catholics don't actually refer to her as a goddess, she's given the same status minus the name. I tried to explain that Catholics DO NOT believe that Mary is an omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent being and that there's a big difference between honoring Mary more...
Joh 14:30, The prince of this world - Τουτου, of this, is omitted by ABDEGHKLMS, Mt. BH, one hundred others; both the Syriac, later Persic, all the Arabic, and several of the primitive fathers.
But who is the person called here the prince of the world?
1. Mr. Wakefield thinks that Christ speaks here of himself, as he does in Joh 12:31 Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.; and translates this verse and the following thus: For the ruler of this world is coming; and I have nothing now to do, but to convince the world that I love the Father, and do as he commanded me. On which he observes that our Lord speaks of what he shall be, when he comes again, and not of what he then was: compare Joh...
This is another confusing one.
I'm constantly told that a demon is behind my thoughts and actions.
I just cant seem to grasp such a concept.
That I'm a utility for the demonic kingdom.
I'm born again!
If I share something with someone. E.g. Here look at this testimony of a Christian in a similar circumstance to you, I end up reiterate it twice.
Then the other Christian will say that's demons talking through you because I'm trying to control them?
I get angry and upset, someone will say its demons!
