“I am very sorry to hear about some religious groups in the United States that support the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. Such support cannot be justified from a Christian point of view because Christianity is against any sort of occupation and injustice in all its forms and its rationalization.
These groups need to re-read their Bible, because the Bible calls us to stand with the marginalized and the oppressed and not with the oppressors.
For those who use the Bible to support Israel need to differentiate between God’s promise and Balfour’s promise (Balfour Declaration), because the occupation is the result of a promise given to the Israelis by Lord Balfour and not by God.”

When discussing the issue of the Middle East, and of the murderous occupation and theft of Palestine invariably someone (brainwashed or Zionist) will drag out the old standby talking point, namely that, “God gave that land to the Jews,” and that this gives the ‘Jews’ of today licence to ‘take back’ all of the biblical land of Israel.
Aside from the fact that the promises from God in the Old Testament were not made to ‘Jews’, I present here for you a quick and easy rebuttal to the aforementioned nonsense… mostly from the very Old Testamental Scriptures which the Jews claim to adhere to. (more…)

He’s a Zionist “Christian” by the looks of things and a Freemason to boot apparently. Oh and supposedly he is responsible for the car bomb and the shootings all by his self. They say he killed at least 92 people. 84 kids on that island alone from what I’ve heard.
Lord have mercy! Save their souls!
This was the scene on the Island the day before (Click on photo two times for full resolution):

The occupation (of Palestine) must end, the wall must be demolished and it must happen now.” (more…)

By Father Daniel Swires
In the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
There is an ancient belief among some people known as “millenarianism” or “chiliasm.” This is the belief that Christ will set up an earthly kingdom and will rule it for a thousand years, usually referred to as the “Millenium.”
This belief actually has its origin in post-exilic Judaism. An anticipation that survived the Babylonian exile was that one day God would restore the kingdom of David under a model anointed king, the Messiah. Even though idealized, this would be an earthly, historical kingdom, and most often its relation to the end-time was not specified.
Another expectation that developed, especially in apocalyptic writings, was that God would directly intervene in the end-time, without any mention of a restoration of the Davidic kingdom.
One way of combining the two expectations was to see two divine interventions: (1) a restoration of an earthly kingdom or period of blissful prosperity to be followed by (2) God’s end-time victory and judgment. Many writers speculated about these two events. They are found in 1st Enoch, in 4th Ezra, in 2nd Baruch, in the Ascension of Isaiah. It is interesting, though, that each of these writers sees a different time frame for these events. It is quite probable, in fact, that most of them never intended to convey exact times. Rather, they were symbolic ways of predicting divine victory over evil forces that are an obstacle to God’s Kingdom or rule.
St. John, then, in writing the Apocalypse, also used the idea of a thousand-year reign of Christ, not to describe a historical, earthly kingdom, but as a way of saying that ultimately, in His own time, God will have the victory. (It is worth reminding ourselves that only one passage in the Apocalypse, consisting of two verses, mentions a thousand-year reign: from this one small passage has come a lot of exaggerated speculation.)

I was referred to this website a while ago: Bible.ca…
Apparently, it’s operated by the so-called ‘Churches of Christ’ (19th century Restorationist movement of Alexander Campbell and Barton Stone). They are basically just another sect of ‘Sola Scriptura’ Protestants who claim to follow the Bible only… Any other extra-Biblical traditions (aside from their own of course) are derided, and the authority of the Church from whence the Bible came is expressly denied.
Anyhow, there’s a page on that site: … Irrefutable Questions That Roman Catholics and Orthodox Can’t Answer… On that page there are 29 questions.
Some of them are (to me at least) virtually unintelligible… but here for your perusal are the questions followed by my answers (to most of them anyway)…
A Conversation With A Protestant… August 7, 2010Posted by The Prodigal Son in Uncategorized.

Here’s a quote from a website I visited:
Sound complicated? It’s not, really. It is simply a matter of believing that Jesus is God’s only begotten Son, and that He came to Earth, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died to remove your sin — that original sin you inherited from Adam — then rose again on the third day to assure your future resurrection.
Here is what it takes to be “born again.” It is as simple as ABC:
A – Admit you are a sinner.
B – Believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died and rose again to give you eternal life.
C – Call upon Him in prayer and ask for salvation.”
So… I ask you – is that the true Gospel? Or is it a lie invented in the 16th century which only serves to fool people and keep them from the knowledge of the truth and the salvation found in His Church?
The Didache Pt. II – Where Is the New Testament Church of the Living God; the Pillar and Ground of the Truth? April 25, 2010Posted by The Prodigal Son in Christianity.

As promised – for my second post here at Christ Conquers I’m going to go through the Didache from start-to-finish, drawing attention to certain things which the Roman ‘Catholics’ and the various Protestants ignore…
I feel I should make clear though that I’m not judging others as to their final place in the age to come…
Only God Almighty Himself knows the ultimate destination of people when it comes to whether or not those who call themselves Christians will go to Paradise in Heaven or Hell in Gehenna.
Having said that – I do feel it is acceptable; indeed – I feel it is the duty of a real Christian to reprove error when it is perceived and to endeavour to tell each other the truth in love.

In today’s world – with the way things are going within ‘Christendom’ in North America & Europe especially, it is my feeling that all those who identify themselves as ‘Christian’ need to ask themselves one important question:
If the apostles of Christ showed up today in your neck of the woods… would they recognize what people who call themselves ‘Christians’ are doing and saying as that faith once delivered to the saints?
