Christians didn't do that. Africans sold their own people to the European secularists.

I'm pretty sure the American colonial settlers were all just different types of Christian. Octavia was not talking about Africans he was talking about Native Americans. Where did the "they sold us slaves so it's ok" come from? It does not matter who you bought the slave from it is still wrong.

Check out what types of scum ran the slave trade & follow the money. And Christians who bought into it were doing an evil thing. God said to treat even the ANIMALS well, and that people are certainly more valuable than animals. Slavery was part of the secular system primarily.

In the Old Testament it is clear that slavery is allowed and even says that slaves are property
reply

Yes it does. In the New Testament it was common practice in the culture, a fact of life. But It is inconsistent with the words of Jesus which were to free the oppressed, set the captives free, show mercy, and to treat others as yourself. Jesus came to fulfill the harsh requirements of the Law since nobody can live up to them, which he did by dying on the cross.

No, the historical site at the Newtown, Massachusetts that my AP History class went to.

Unlike whatever shit Texan history is teaching you, Massachusetts history actually focuses on truth, and not self-glorification.

Texas history is about Texas. Not sure what you're trying to say. All Texans are morons? I mean, you think a few so-called Christians committed some supposed acts of horror and that bases your hatred for most or all Christians? I suppose if your hatred for God and his followers is so strong...then whatever you say, man.

Joel Osteen claims to be a Christian as well, but he's nothing more than a glorfied self help guru who uses Christianity to fool people into giving him money.

Dude no one ever mentioned anything about hating all Christians. Where are you getting the backing for these accusations. Also let me point out to you that there hundreds of denominations of Christianity. Catholicism is one therefore they are Christians. Every denomination has something different that they believe in that the others don't and that is why they are not all simply called "Christians." The Seventh Day Adventists for example would call you a "bad Christian," for eating pig or shellfish which I'm certain most American Christians do. However it is stated in the Bible clearly that eating these animals or even touching their carcasses makes you "unclean."

And Christians stopped it, but not soon enough. It also helps to try & understand the secular & political climate at the time.

Can we ever keep the discussion within the past few decades? I mean every time there is a political or religious discussion we are suddenly plunged into the deepest pages of the history books. We are living in the PRESENT now. These are present day problems. I, for one have or should I say used to not have, any problem with gay people. The problem ow stems from it being pushed as short of a "cool" lifestyle to young people. I don't think a person's sexual preference is something to be proud of or to glamorize. They are going over the top! And people are tired of hearing about it.

Westbrook Baptist church is a cult which follows some butt heads who don't follow the bible. I don't wish for LGBT people to be upset. Some Christians are very offensive, but I bet many people are seeing red now. I hope the best for you guys, and I've known a few. It's good to see your perspective, in general.

Baptist is an offshoot, or a sect of Christian. True Christianity is a relationship with God, not religion. Baptist, just like protestant, seventh day Adventist, etc, is just a group that base their roots in Christianity, but are not a true version of Christianity. Some believe the same things, for the most part. And many are Christians, but calling yourself a Christian and not following biblical teachings doesn't make you a Christian.

But its true,... we do not believe them to be true Christians spewing hate. They are an "exception" that have an extreme interpretation of the bible and are not accepted by mainstream christianity. I am a Christian,.. and I although many denominations have variences in interpretations,... they basically have the same core belief. If a user on this site who claimed to be Christian,.. was spewing that hatred,.. I would not agree with him / her regardless of their claim to be Christian. . nor would other mainstream Christians. Wizasser above,.. is commenting in a Christian manner. I have no idea what his denomination is, but even if different from mine,.. I can see he represents a true Christian heart. And you have known me long enough to know the same,.. we don't make personal attacks and condemn. We may disagree with you,... but we also wish the best for you. Christianity certainly has some historical imperfections ( sarcasm ),.. but it is not practiced that way now at all. . with the exception of some cults like westboro. =) GOOD TO SEE YOU ACTIVE BRO! I have been fooled! And the one time could have met was right after my sinus surgery when I had that extra procedure with the stent! Big bummer!

I'll definitely let you know the next time I'm in your area, brother! :) I agree with you. I have known you long enough to know that you are a very respectful and polite guy, even when discussing a topic such as religion that you and I disagree on. My point earlier was that when a Christian group like Westboro, or someone like Eric Robert Rudolph does something terrible, some people distance themselves from them and say that they aren't a "true Christian". They may be on the extreme fringe, but they get their views and beliefs (no matter how twisted) from the Bible and Christianity. It's unfortunate, but thankfully, people like that are only a tiny minority of the Christian population, but I would still say they are Christians. Hope your recovery is going well! :)

Sorry to burst in, but this comment branch made me very happy. I'm not a person of religion nor am I a person of politics. However, some of my friends are die-hard Christians, liberals, or republicans. Though we get into debates and can never really agree on the others' opinions entirely. We still understand that all humans are people and we go on being friends, because we know that religion and political stance, even sexual orientation, do not define you as a person. Your actions and the way that you make your actions do. I just wanted to point this out to some of the people commenting on this thread. Take Invicta103 and Octavia_Melody as example of being a good person.

Well, just because the government still technically is affiliated with religion does not make it a good thing. It's pretty bad. I mean, if the 10 commandments are displayed there, where one of them being something like "there is only one god and he is our lord and savior Jesus Christ," then we're pretty much calling ourselves a fully Christian country, which may not be true, but it still makes it look like we're giving a negative environment to minorities.
reply
1 up
A negative environment? Depends on who you ask. But displaying the ten commandments isn't really hurting anyone since most of the federal government is far from Christian. If they are, they certainly don't show it.

And as for this country not being a Christian country...I would have to agree with that, but it was founded on Christian beliefs, or a passionate following of Jesus Christ.
