I hope you weren't offended, I wasn't complaining about your post, I was just offering a suggestion.

But someone else did bring up a point you might consider. I don't mention this to tear you down, but rather to build you up:

Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

I understand this 'IS' an emotional topic.. people have been killed. and I didn't really take your language as an attack on me but more as conveying some sort of frustration. But even the proclamation of the gospel is a serious matter, and another passage that could be helpful is this:

2Timothy 2:24-26 "And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will."

It's kind of funny how people trash Christianity for Christians being humans and sinning, but Christianity presupposes that Christians will be sinning and the Bible is full of the descriptions of God's people sinning and falling short, not to mention all of the corruption mentioned in the church( i.e. Judas Iscariot, false Christians mentioned in the book of Jude, etc.). If one wants to assess the truth of Christianity, they need to assess Jesus, not sins of Christians.
