"And archeology has time and again showed the accuracy of scripture...so common sense would lead us to believe IFall else found thus far prooves scripture then according to reason, it is accurate."
No, because some of the claimed times and events match up does not mean that the claims of how those events happened are, that is a problem we have in our own history books, history is written by those in power. The bible has been manipulated and changed, and thats a fact, and there are plenty of scriptures that weren't put in and or taken out, therefore no firm conclusion can be based off of the bible.
But I tell you what, I've seen people who seem to be actively trying to bring about armageddon, as the bad guys, and that isn't a good thing, as far as I'm concerned.
I do believe in the possibility of the validity of the bible in many ways, and I believe in the power of honesty, trust, love, and respect, and I also believe in the power of lies, corruption, greed, violence, and hate.
And quite frankly that is what is important, God knows the message is more important than the book, faith isn't in a book but in a person about an idea. The idea is love, trust, and repsect.
You cannot be for killing innocents in an unjust and lie of a war and still rationally call yourself a christian, stop lying to yourselves. All you need to do to see the big picture is look at what isn't being shown to you.
Do not ask for censorship of war's gore, if you don't see what you are doing you can simply act like it isn't happening. We are slaughtering helpless women and children daily and thousands are dead and dying.
We even flipped our flags backwards on our uniforms, did you know that, they say its because when you march forward the flag will flow behind you, the thing is, these people are into the occult, and there is a much older and more puposeful meaning to inverting symbols in cultic symbolism, it represents evil. Upside down crosses, pentagrams etc.
If you want to obey the bible than you are actual supposed to be putting whatever leaders of ours who participate in the Cremation of Care ritual, are supposed to be put to death.
18:21 You must not give any of your children as an offering to Molech, 29 so that you do not profane 30 the name of your God. I am the Lord!
20:1 The Lord spoke to Moses: 20:2 'You are to say to the Israelites, 'Any man from the Israelites or from the foreigners who reside in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech must be put to death; the people of the land must pelt him with stones. 20:3 I myself will set my face against that man and cut him off from the midst of his people, because he has given some of his children to Molech and thereby defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. 20:4 If, however, the people of the land shut their eyes to that man when he gives some of his children to Molech so that they do not put him to death, 20:5 I myself will set my face against that man and his clan. I will cut off from the midst of their people both him and all who follow after him in prostitution, to commit prostitution by going after Molech.
23:10 The king ruined Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom so that no one could pass his son or his daughter through the fire to Molech
32:35 And they built the high places of Baal, which [are] in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through [the fire] unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin. http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2005/020104grovebackground.h

I thought this part particularly important, Patrish, if we follow these leaders who do this insanity, we are cut off too, we support this behavior if we don't actively try to stop it.
In this I hope you will be the christian you are so proud of, I hope all of us will do something.
