    I would suggest you you read about who Vishnu really is, I heard about that deity and it is pretty wicked. They have a statue of it in Switzerland where that machine that was supposed to recreate the big bang is. Those who are involved in that project are all Pagan, they have an agenda to make contact with the Spiritual realm and usher in a new age of enlightenment.

    You should have a closer look and find out what's behind these symbols, you will b e shocked to discover where they originated. People think these things are harmless but they are in great danger.

    Like I said, xenophobic. You didn't even have the basic decency to get my avatar correct. It's Ma Kali, the demon slayer, just FYI. If you want to decry other religions, get the bare minimum basics right. I mean it's just sloppy otherwise. This is the age of information, no excuses.

    You're the one with the devil seemingly constantly on their mind, mine is free from such hate and evil happy to say.
    Under his spell indeed.

    I'm fairly open minded, can't say the same of a person who openly derides any belief not exactly like theirs as "demonic" though. I mean you could still prove me wrong, not holding my breath however.
    It's okay. I have no hard feelings towards you. I prefer to spread levity myself.
    So much nicer than hate, I find. And you get to be snarky to boot. Win win.

    Someone's been deceived into a false sense of security, it's like being in the eye of the storm. It all seems calm and safe, then suddenly !!!!!!!!

    As long as Satan and His Demons get you to think they don't exist, they have you exactly where they want you. They don't bother those who are on the road that takes them to the pits of hell, but as soon as a person finds out the truth then they do everything in their power to get you back on the road to hell.

    So if everything is just fine and you're skipping along singing jambalaya, He's happy to leave you alone because He already has you exactly where He want's you.

    God's people are identified by having a sound mind, so we aren't messed up at all. God has given us the answer to the secrets of the universe, so we aren't wondering around lost in confusion like unbelievers.

    Gods people can't be possessed by Demons, we have the Holy Spirit indwelling us. So there's no place for an evil Spirit, within a true believer. We have true peace and true joy and true happiness, no drug or riches can compare with the treasure we have in Christ. We will inherit eternal life in paradise and all the riches of the universe will be ours and we will be given super powers.

    The wrath of God abides on the unbeliever and eternal torment in hell fire awaits all unbelievers, so there's a stark contrast between believers and unbelievers. We have unimaginable happiness and joy waiting for us and unbelievers have unimaginable horror and suffering waiting for them, it's the most serious issue and unbelievers desperately wish it wasn't true.

    I find it amazing that you guys are willing to risk your eternal security for the sake of foolish pride.

    What makes you think I’m an “unbeliever?” Although, I’m not the “Comicon” version you potray here, with the “superpowers” and the riches and the “secrets of the universe.” I simply love justice, do mercy and walk humbly.

    1) I’ve known plenty of Christians who weren’t right in the head.
    2) I’ve known Christians with plenty of their own demons.

    The problem is, this world has sunk into total depravity. Christ told us that the world would become like Sodom and Gomorrah before He returns, so we know that his return is imminent.

    You call the truth hatred and Gods people are accused of hatred when they share the truth with unbelievers. Jesus warned us to expect this and you are proving Him right, He said that we will be hated by the whole world for His names sake. He said that we would suffer persecution and execution for following Him.

    We posses the truth and unbelievers hate the truth because it exposes their wickedness, you may claim to be loving and open minded and generally a good person but Christ said that you are totally depraved and that your heart is wicked above all things.

    Everyone is born wicked, so that's why Christ said we need to be born again. We need to die to our old carnal nature and receive the Holy Spirit, otherwise will will end up in hell and suffer eternal torment in fire. The problem is unbelievers love their sin too much to surrender their life to Christ and follow Him.

    There are only two types of people in the world, believers and unbelievers. The Bible calls believers the "elect of God" and unbelievers are called "the reprobate", there is no third category. Every single person who has ever lived will stand before god on judgement day, if you didn't know Christ as your Lord and savior then you will be cast into hell where there is no escape and no way to cease existing and it's eternal.

    You don't make any rules, you are subject to every single rule and commandment of God. There is no escape from the truth, nobody can change anything that God has decreed.

    You don't know any Christians who aren't right in the head, what you know are reprobate hypocrites who call themselves Christian. A true believer (Christian) is like Christ, so all you need to do to identify a Christian is look at their life and if they aren't like Christ they are not Christians.

    There are around 2 billion people who identify as "Christian" but the vast majority are liars and hypocrites. True believers are of sound mind and they live their lives as Christ lived His, because "Christian" means Christ-like or follower of Christ.

    Anyone can call themselves Christian, but we need to look at they way they live and not what they claim.

    Well the Bible would say such things, wouldn't it? It claims that attacks of other faiths is truth and when people fight back, a perfectly natural and expected response, it says "ha, see. Told you they'd do that." Its a thoroughly cheap tactic and allows certain people to fulfill their weird martyr complex/fetish. Meh.

    You guys have been saying that "the world is evil" rhetoric for so long, even Plato is on record lamenting about you guys.
    Please forgive my eye roll.

    I’m looking at your posts. Jesus was just not this paranoid about demons and not this condemning of others. By your own criteria, then...

    I don’t think you need to apologize. The eye roll is a mild reaction to this sort of hokum.

    You can reject the truth now and dismiss it and ignore it and mock and ridicule it but a day is coming quickly when you will kneel before Christ and worship Him and beg Him for mercy but He will show you no mercy. \

    He will remind you of all those times you rejected His free offer of forgiveness and salvation. then He will cast you into hell, where you will remain forever with no hope of escape or end.

    The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom, you haven't even begun to understand the truth of the matter. The first thing you must do is repent and turn from your sins and follow Christ and give your life to serving Him, otherwise you are doomed to spend eternity in hell.

    Calvin is only one person in millions who understood scripture correctly, never mind Calvin. You will be judged on what you did with Christ's free offer of salvation.
