@Region Philbis,
Remember Christians forgive people. That throws a monkey wrench in your stupid, not very well thought out memes.

Muhammad was white. Did you know that? You do now.

Oh and you selectively take things written in the Koran as fact when it suits your narrative.

You are warped...

There are over a hundred verses he preach violence. There over a hundred that teach hate. There are 93 verses that say Muhammad should be emulated and imitated as the perfect man. If that is not a way to churn out killers, I do not know what is.

Nothing selective is needed. It is a doctrine and well established and unchangeable.

@coldjoint,
The Christian new testament says good Christians should "Mortify therefore your members"..

Mortify is were we get the words "mortuary" and "mortar" as in "gun powder".

In other words, blow your enemies to smithereens, and put them in a morgue.

How many "onward christian soldiers" has this warmongering scripture churned out?

Once again you point a finger at others while you have three pointing back at yourself.

And why is Trump so horny over building a titty bar in Saudi Arabia?

The country where the 9/11 hijackers were "churned out"...

More stupidity from our racist republican peanut gallery.

When you want to know the biblical meaning of a word you look up the first usage in the bible.

Acts 21:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 And the next day we that were of Paul's company departed, and came unto Caesarea: and we entered into the house of Philip the evangelist, which was one of the seven; and abode with him.

The biblical definition of an evangelist is Philip. There are two people named Philip. One of them is the brother of Herod, so I don't think we need to study him.

John 1:45 King James Version (KJV)
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

So Philip the apostle is the definition of an evengelist. In our modern world we have a flood of impressions, assumptions, distractions, and so on, but the bible is much simpler: an evangelist is simply someone who tells people what he has found. Not a preacher persuading sinners to repent, not a peddler trying to sell memberships in his denomination, not a tv magic act. Only a person who speaks of what he has found.

Another important point that most people are not aware of:

Ephesians 4:11-12 King James Version (KJV)
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

The ministries are to benefit the believers, not specifically to drag in new members for the church.

Why does Scientology have a cruise ship? Well, because Jesus was a fisher of men and he would have used cruise ships had they been available during his time on earth. Smile

@Jewels Vern,
Some people are "gifted" with the long-suit of a welcoming smile and an exuberance for "what they have found".

While some are so encumbered by study and sifting through doctrine that they are bothered by rehashing the same old story over and over.

Some uncover new light, some shepherd, some teach, some foretell and some greet.

And,
The idea that the first usage of a word defines it is not always the case.

Many words and their meanings change over time and are used haphazardly.

I am sure there was an attempt at continuity as there was an attempt at not creating contradictions, both attempts failed miserably.

The only sure thing is uncertainty and uncertainty provides the room to evolve and grow in further understanding of what God is.

The Bible is erroneous in many ways... Just as any other book written by the will of prophets.

What the Bible says of itself is not always the truth.

Make evangelism great again?

Thou shalt not temp the pool boy...

Jerry Falwell Jr & his wife met a young pool boy on vacation. Then they started ‘helping’ him.
https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2018/12/jerry-falwell-jr-wife-met-young-pool-boy-vacation-started-helping/

Pool boys are fine without the hypocrisy and hate...

...and I wonder what they have got on Lindsey Graham?

Are their soiled reputations worth defending corrupt Trump?

No.

The idea of 72 virgins in Islam translate to pool boys in Jerry Falwell's version of heaven.

If you really knew anything about religion it would have surfaced by now. The only thing you know about it is how to use it to your advantage. That is not what it is about. A grasping self serving individual might understand how to do that, but that is where it ends.

Ted Kennedy was a murderer. Bill Clinton is an unpunished rapist. A reminder for a shill, and not even a very good one.

@coldjoint,
Using religion for the advantage of 14 year old gays who are being bullied and driven to suicide by right wing hypocrite demagogues. Yea, I will use religion against your hypocrite kind who rake in the bucks from their rich donors while spreading hate.

Using region to spare a life, that's a worthy purpose for religion.

1 John 3:16
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

Comment:
Your purpose on the other hand is sick and depraved, defending crooked liars and cheats.

Where are your scriptures. Your judgement of me is without any biblical grounds with which to stand on.

What have we learned from you?!

Matthew 7:24-27 (KJV)
24 “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. 26 And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.”

Comment
The foolish man who uses hypocrisy (which is sand) and when the rains come it washes away the integrity of a person's moral character. And, "great is the fall". Good to see such and evil man go out like this. Yes this is great.

1 Corinthians 4:3 (KJV)
But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man's judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.

Comment:
Your buddies judge others harshly while giving themselves a free pass.

Matthew 15:7-12 (KJV)
7 Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying,

8 This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Comment:
Did Jesus use religion to his advantage too? Here he has said exactly what I am saying.

Your buddies honor Jesus with their lips but their hearts are out screwing the pool boy. The problem is not the act itself, it is the hypocrisy that is used to accompany that act...

How about, "Thou shalt not commit adultery"?

How much did he pay the pool boy again?

Did he take that money right out of the collection plate too? ...money donated to feed the poor and heal the sick?

And here you stand defending him? Really, who is the one using politics to warp and smear religion?

You are.

Who is the one who is clearly demonstrating they know nothing about religion?

Answer:
You and your hypocrite buddies who have probably never even seriously read the Bible or any other book professing morality or substance.

Nothing but money making scam artists using religion to prey on unsuspecting vulnerable people.

Like, Trump University (oxymoron), or rather, Trump Church (oxymoron).

@coldjoint,
I would rather not see what is left when God is done judging you.
Little of value would be left...

I have yet to see a single redeeming quality that you exhibit.
