I can't understand where you stand

One time you say "As for Saudis paying bombers to blow themselves up, that is not right, and god will punish them for twisting his faith and using it to murder innocent ppl. And anyone who willingly kills himself is going to hell, this life is gods, and he takes it when he wants, not when you feel like it. That is my Believe. "

And then you say

"Fight like a man lol. But they cant, they are out numbered out gunned, and still they are willing to fight, amazing the determination these ppl have, while we sit here and type words, they are blowing themselves up to get their point across."

So, you don't agree with suicide bombers but you are justifying what they do by claiming that they are helpless and this is the only way they can get their points through?

You said

"I say we are not doing enough to stop the violence and up the game of cultural understanding. One thing that always makes me feel uneasy is the fact that less then 2% of missionary services are aimed at Muslim countries. While the great Muslim population in the united states and Canada are spearing the word of god and converting ppl left and right, Christian missionaries are not doing their part in the Muslim world which adds to the fire."

Again I can understand where do you stand, are you with Christian missioners to the Muslims countries, if you are. I think it is obvious how dangerous it is for not only the missionaries but also for the people who convert from Islam to Christianity. I have seen 3 people already one came from Saudi Arabia to US who converted to Christianity, but he escaped because of the fear of torture, 1 woman from Iraq who also escaped to US, the other woman is Kurd who fled to Germany. I met three of them and I know it doesn't need a genius to understand why Christian missionaries think million of times before they go to Muslim Countries, fearing not only of their safety but the safety of the converts.

Most of the converts from Islam to Christianity are always hiding or on the run out of fear for their lives, they don't put their stories on the Internet like converts to Islam. Converts to Islam are not discriminated or tortured, because there is a freedom and human rights in Christianity that prevents any harm to any human being regardless of differences. Violance has NO justification whatsoever in Christianity

In case your statement is true about the numbers of converts from Christianity to Islam, I say Congratulations to you but this is not affecting Christianity at all. I am happy for you though because maybe this story is the only thing left for Muslims to make them feel good about their religion.

Peace be with you
