Thanks for the Biblical, traditional, and correct presentation on a case regarding the work of Satan. For those who don’t believe in him personally, they should just look at the trails of bodies and blood through history. The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil” includes a stanza:p>”Rode a tank, br> Wore a general’s rank, br> When the blitzkrieg rolled, br> And the bodies stank,” /p> p>I have no doubt that the Enemy of our Souls had a wild time during World War II. He is quite busy in Iraq, or at least his minions are. br> — SPC Snuffy Smith /p>
Europe is correct to be very wary of religion. Given that Christianity is so weak in Europe and that Islam is threatening Europe’s future, it is logical that Europe would put religion in a small, tightly constrained box. What choice do they have? Christianity is not going to make a come back in Europe and Islam, the one religion in Europe that could have huge growth, threatens Europe’s fundamental freedoms. There is no point in having freedom of religion if that eventually costs you all of your freedoms (including freedom of religion).
Regarding faith in God, it is important to remember that faith in God is a faith. It is not science. God is not taught as a science anywhere in the world. You cannot expect people to share your faith. If they do, great. If they don’t, there really is no scientific argument that will persuade them that there is a god or that anybody knows anything about that god.
I think there are many good things about religion and that it obviously fills a need that people have. I would even say the world is probably better off because religion exists (though Islam is making me have second thoughts). The problem with religion is that it is completely faith-based and there are a bunch of different faiths. Most people just cannot relate to a faith based approach to life, especially if the rest of your life is dominated by the scientific method.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
