I am Catholic, which most people have very little understanding, including cradle born Catholics.
Many Christians profess in an Armegeddon.. I don't believe that. Rather I believe:
"Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen."
AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, IS NOW, AND EVER SHALL BE, WORLD WITHOUT END
WORLD WITHOUT END <- get that? WORLD WITHOUT END.
Jesus is THE PRINCE OF PEACE.
Since Adam's sin, ALL people are sinners, TO ERR IS HUMAN, throughout the ages, there have been greivous errors, whether they be original, by fruad, by corruption, deception.. matters not. Periodically the people, or leaders, of Churchs have erred, sinned, made tragic mistakes. We hope to learn from these mistake, not cover them up.. not forget, but ADMIT: WE WERE WRONG.. keep that lesson alive so we do not make the same mistake.
I do not support any murdering.
If you look at history, you will see that Israel has been in constant defense. That is not to say that there are those who are criminals. The criminals should be tried as criminals.. but to place that upon a nation? That is not right. That's like me saying, "WHY DID YOU ATTACK IRAQ Anthony in AR? You are a brutal murderer by association Anthony of AR!!!!" By your your own logic, this is true.
Do not tell me that you are not a murderer.. I can show you all the graves and the war and the damage of building so you can drive your car.. everyday you drive your car a child is dying for you to drive.
This is the position those against Israel take.. it's overgeneralization, and it's not true, though I can prove that YOU are a murderer because YOU are an American driving a car with petrol from Iraq where children died by your hand, your vote, your nation.
I do not support corruption,, yet you load your question to accuse me, damn me, and this is fair? This is just? This is not corrupt on your own part?
On your second part.. I agree with you, and why I am not a protestant.. protestantism does not promote peace. It supports war. As a Catholic, my religion supports peace. Central theme of our mass is Dominus Vibiscum. After The Lord's Prayer we give each other a sign of PEACE.
I don't know about Israel having a "special meaning". I don't know what you are talking about. I don't believe Israel has some speacial meaning. I do believe that Israel is light years ahead of the world in agriculture (No GMO anywhere), Science, technology, education.. history is still being unearthed..
It would not suprize me to learn that Israel invented the wheel, because it seems while Americans are buying stuff made in China, storing bags of rice for survival, trying to figure out how to sustain, Israel developed their forests by 20%, the only country on Earth that produced forest. 80% of Israel is on environmentally safe and sound solar power.. Israel is light years ahead of the rest of us... There are many Arabs who LOVE Israel, secular and Muslim.. these are those who appreciate the desert blooming, the technology, the freedom.. but there are those who do not appreciate these things. They are extreme, and I find it facinating so many on DP support an extremeist Religion that supresses it's own people.
I ADORE my Lord Jesus Christ with ALL my HEART and SOUL. I AM HIS SHEEP.. I AM SHEEPLE and I THANK GOD, GIVE GOD ALL GLORY for having the grace and mercy to have a SINNER like me in his flock. AMEN!
