Just want to say one thing. You said *Jesus doesn't want us to welcome the enemy*.

Every refugee is not your *enemy*.
 Quoting: Sloane


Yet we know the enemy is hidden among them so by your logic we should take them all in even if that means leting in our enemies to kill us. So if there was bowl of M&Ms and in amongst them was poison that would kill you but you have know way of knowing which M&Ms are the poison would you still eat the M&Ms or pass on it?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9077173


Its not exactly like you have to explain this analogy to cultural Marxists.

They can sniff out a Christian conservative MM in a candy bowl, just by someone saying a phrase like, "hard work."

If you ask a " Muslim" if they believe in the Quran and the Hadith and they say yes, they ARE INDEED our enemy ...the Quran and the Hadith tell them to FIND THE INFIDEL WHEREVER THEY MAY HIDE, AND KILL THEM! !!!

AND THEY BELIEVE. ...HATRED " IS" instilled in them IF they tell you they believe in these books because the same books also tell them they are to LIE TO THEIR ENEMY AT ANY COST ...AT ANY COST!!!

Don't be deceived people , they SURE ARENT...THEY KNOW EXACTLY what their belief system is, do YOU?!!!

you shouldhave sweetly stood up and gave your side of the story, in a question-like manner.

You shoulhave told them all you have heard here and all that you know for sure to be true. But that is ok: next time. Right?- but youwill be prepared for it this time. Right?

That probably won't do much good. They have their agenda, and they know some won't like it, so they'll sadly bid you farewell, secretly happy that a subversive is gone.

In a huge organization (MEGA church) what you don't want is subversives. It gets in the way of management effectiveness.

It would be more useful, therefore, to be subversive among the members. Talk to them about it during coffee after the service or whenever you can meet them.

And if YOU went to that mosque, you would be pushed out rudely. Totally unlike your church which welcomes all comers.

Muslims can maintain a good veneer of politeness. But get close to their mosque and that goes away.

How very Christian of you.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 70197472


God does not want us to be foolish. He wants us to be discerning and He knows there are terrorists mixed in with refugees and he does not want us to risk our families by bringing them here.

You people who tell Christians to do such idiotic things are of the devil and nobody should listen to you. You are not Christians. So shut the fuck up.
 Quoting: Ralph--a house dog


THANK YOU !!!!
Perhaps these people should take a few hundred of these poor men , refugees to their homes WITH THEIR LITTLE SONS AND DAUGHTERS IN THE NEXT ROOMS ...let's see how many of them actually put up or shut up!!!
They have NO DISCERNMENT WHATSOEVER, but say we are not christians and Jesus wouldn't want it...OBVIOUSLY they've NEVER cracked open a Bible, or they would KNOW what Jesus really says ABOUT SUCH HEATHENISTIC PEOPLE!!!!!

HE DIDN'T JUST SAY IT ONCE OR TWICE BUT MANY TIMES , HE SAID ...FROM SUCH TURN AWAY!!!! WHAT FELLOWSHIP HATH LIGHT WITH DARKNESS? JESUS ASKED.

Christians ARE NOT to have fellowship in ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM, with darkness, or those WHO DENY JESUS CHRIST!!
FROM SUCH, TURN AWAY!!!

Real christians KNOW what God's word says, they KNOW where the wickedness lies, and it lies with ALL THOSE WHO INSIST ON TRYING TO MAKE SYRIANS , OR DEVOUT MUSLIMS OF ANY KIND OUR FRIENDS!!!!! PERIOD. PERIOD. END OF THE DISCUSSION , Because your argument is mute!

When the European jihad start around June 2016, these mega churches and charities helping jihad will be on everyone's shit list.
The slaughter will be in the millions. The only benefit is it will wake up the American people what is in store for America. Hopefully before it is too late.

Episode 425 – In this edition we welcome novelist and essayist Matthew Bracken on board on the heels of the presentation of his article “Tet, Take Two: Islam’s 2016 European Offensive,” earlier this week. Very, very interesting and informative interview. Bracken is former navy seal and novelist. Makes a good argument 2016 is the year.

OP's not being a scumbag for not wanting to help Isis and their families. Most of the so called refugees are fake Syrians who are really Isis members and their families fleeing Russian bombings and assad's army. Notice this flood didn't start till Russia starting bombing the heck out of Isis. Isis are the ones that have murdered millions of Christians and plan on doing the same thing once they get here. There are no Syrian Christian refugees being allowed in despite the fact they are the ones being persecuted and murdered the most by Isis. Many of the refugees are fake Syrians using murdered Syrian's passports to come to the west and we have no way of knowing which ones are legit and which ones are not. Isis even had passport making machine so they can travel under false names. This is a nightmare in the making.

Re: My Church Wants to Support "Refugee's"....I almost puked during the presentation.
I go to a mega church in my area and have been really, really happy there....until this morning.

As part of the "Christmas" offering they are asking for money to go to three causes. The second cause I would support because it is local and affects my community. The third cause however made me almost puke as they presented it this morning.

They had the founder of a non profit group speak about the Syrian crisis and how our church wants to help support this cause. They played pictures on the big screens of children, women crying holding dirty, hurt children, towns in total rubble, etc. They even talked about the story of the 3 year old boy who washed up on a shore dead. Yes, this story was debunked here on GLP and if memory serves me found that Alnon (or whatever the kids name was), was actually killed by his father and it was a propaganda shoot or something like that.

During the slide show questions and statements flooded the pictures shown like "Jesus was a refugee", "there was no room at the Inn when Jesus was born, don't be an inn keeper", etc. I literally almost vomited and had to control my emotions cause my soul was SCREAMING inside. I seriously almost stood up and started screaming about how blind our church leaders were being. My husband had to grab my wrist to stop me from blurting out obscenities.

Our pastor asked this man who is helping these "refugees" how we can know they are "safe". His response was that in all the history of refugees coming from syria starting in the 80's that NONE have committed acts of terrorism. He went on to say that many are Christians and the ones who are muslim have been visiting area churches wanting to know more about "Christianity".

I wanted to scream WAKE THE F%^$ UP!!!!! It's a sham! The refugees who are coming in are NOT Christian and they are NOT families. i'd venture that over 98% are young fighting age males. The numbers this man shared about how many have already come into California blew my mind. He said OVER 35,000 have already moved into Southern California this year ALONE!!!

I hate to say it but we are on the verge of being F%&^ed in the arse. Today totally blindsided me because my church has never supported a cause like this or gotten involved in something so controversial. The mood in the congregation changed, people were visibly uncomfortable. The man from the agency spoke about ISIS and their vetting process. He tried to reassure over 1000 people that their vetting process works.

I call BULLSHIT....Better yet I call PIG SHIT! I am SO totally sick over this I likely won't go back to my church. I am just totally blown away. People need to wake the frick up. These are NOT our friends. These are NOT people we can trust. There is NO vetting process that works. It's been proven and even reported in the media that our vetting process DOESN:T work.

As a Christian, I get it, we are suppose to help others. HOWEVER, I will NOT sacrifice my families safety for this cause. Jesus doesn't want us to welcome the enemy.

I gotta take my daughter to a birthday party so i'll be offline for awhile but wanted to vent and share this. Thanks for listening to my rant. XOXO

And if God tells you that you have to support the government letting these people in to use our welfare and other systems, then I suppose you ought to listen to that. God doesn't tell me anything of the sort and encourages me to act in a way of total self-respect.

Jesus also did not have to deal with a bunch of Global pirates that are using a fake ass religion created in Yeshuas good name for their own global conquests and military adventurism. Funny how we bless our bombs before we go and maim thousands of women and kids that never hurt us, is that what Jesus would want ?

Re: My Church Wants to Support "Refugee's"....I almost puked during the presentation.
I'm not sure if they're compassionate or in it for the money. I understand these churches are given a lot of federal funds when accepting refugees.
 Quoting: nutmeg


That's exactly the point, Nutmeg.

Follow the money. So many so-called "christian organizations" are getting money from the government - it can't be that this is DELIBERATE, can it? - to MAKE THEM TAKE THESE REFUJIHADIS.

They don't actually ASK their congregations if they WANT to do this....they just come up with the idea, and then play on EMOTIONS to get them to agree "christians are supposed to help those in need...." blah, blah, blah, "Jesus was a refugee..." blah, blah, blah.

A well-coordinated INVASION.

In our area, the "local" diocese (OOPS! I think I just gave something away! ;-P) has agreed to take refugees....the problem is - THE DIOCESE WHO HAS AGREED TO TAKE THEM IS 45 MILES AWAY!!!! BUT THEY WILL BE HOUSED IN *OUR TOWN* - NOT THEIRS!!!!!

Something wrong with THAT picture....it's the typical liberal, "Someone should do this, as long as it's - not in my backyard" thinking.

This diocese "manages" our little congregation (not mine personally, but I mean in our town) from this town 45 miles away. So they continually make decisions about who can live here, WHERE TO BUILD A MIGRANT HOUSING COMPLEX, etc. It's not "in their backyard," but it literally IS in mine! It hasn't been a problem - yet - since it IS well-managed....but now they are building MORE homes on the complex, and I fear they are for SYRIAN "refugees," since the scuttlebutt around town is that many are being "settled" here.

Of course, the money goes to the diocese in the town 45 miles away - NOT our little local church/town....so THEY DON'T REALLY GIVE A SHIT WHAT KIND OF SHITSTORM THEY CREATE HERE....

Re: My Church Wants to Support "Refugee's"....I almost puked during the presentation.
The best way to support Syrian refugees is to make conditions in their country better. Here's how...

The U.S. should arm and support Syrian President Assad's army to clean out "ISIS"/al-Nusra/al Qaeda from Syria. Who better to be boots on the ground than the actual people of Syria -- the Syrian Army.

In concert with Russian aerial bombardment of these same terrorists' positions, terrorists in Syria would be cleaned out in 3 to 6 months.

The real question is: Why aren't we doing that?

The obvious answer is that the prevailing policy in the U.S. is (although it seems they're opening to compromise) that Assad has to go. But why?

Why would the U.S. FIRST AND FOREMOST seek the ouster of Syria's legitimate President Bashar al-Assad? I thought fighting terrorism (in the form of "ISIS"/al-Nusra/al Qaeda) was our biggest concern? Indeed, it's not Assad who seeks war with the U.S. It's these radical Sunni terror groups who have taken over parts of Syria and seek Assad's ouster.

What the U.S. claims it wants, and what U.S. actions demonstrate are completely opposite. What is the old saying?... "Watch what I do; not what I say." And, "Actions speak louder than words".

The U.S. neoconservative agenda -- the prevailing foreign policy since 2001 -- is beginning to reveal itself to the mainstream in America now. The world knew it for what it was pretty quickly. But now the very people whose tax dollars pay for these ideological and corporate money-making foreign excursions using the public's money and blood, are being exposed.

Re: My Church Wants to Support "Refugee's"....I almost puked during the presentation.
I go to a mega church in my area and have been really, really happy there....until this morning.

As part of the "Christmas" offering they are asking for money to go to three causes. The second cause I would support because it is local and affects my community. The third cause however made me almost puke as they presented it this morning.

They had the founder of a non profit group speak about the Syrian crisis and how our church wants to help support this cause. They played pictures on the big screens of children, women crying holding dirty, hurt children, towns in total rubble, etc. They even talked about the story of the 3 year old boy who washed up on a shore dead. Yes, this story was debunked here on GLP and if memory serves me found that Alnon (or whatever the kids name was), was actually killed by his father and it was a propaganda shoot or something like that.

During the slide show questions and statements flooded the pictures shown like "Jesus was a refugee", "there was no room at the Inn when Jesus was born, don't be an inn keeper", etc. I literally almost vomited and had to control my emotions cause my soul was SCREAMING inside. I seriously almost stood up and started screaming about how blind our church leaders were being. My husband had to grab my wrist to stop me from blurting out obscenities.

Our pastor asked this man who is helping these "refugees" how we can know they are "safe". His response was that in all the history of refugees coming from syria starting in the 80's that NONE have committed acts of terrorism. He went on to say that many are Christians and the ones who are muslim have been visiting area churches wanting to know more about "Christianity".

I wanted to scream WAKE THE F%^$ UP!!!!! It's a sham! The refugees who are coming in are NOT Christian and they are NOT families. i'd venture that over 98% are young fighting age males. The numbers this man shared about how many have already come into California blew my mind. He said OVER 35,000 have already moved into Southern California this year ALONE!!!

I hate to say it but we are on the verge of being F%&^ed in the arse. Today totally blindsided me because my church has never supported a cause like this or gotten involved in something so controversial. The mood in the congregation changed, people were visibly uncomfortable. The man from the agency spoke about ISIS and their vetting process. He tried to reassure over 1000 people that their vetting process works.

I call BULLSHIT....Better yet I call PIG SHIT! I am SO totally sick over this I likely won't go back to my church. I am just totally blown away. People need to wake the frick up. These are NOT our friends. These are NOT people we can trust. There is NO vetting process that works. It's been proven and even reported in the media that our vetting process DOESN:T work.

As a Christian, I get it, we are suppose to help others. HOWEVER, I will NOT sacrifice my families safety for this cause. Jesus doesn't want us to welcome the enemy.

I gotta take my daughter to a birthday party so i'll be offline for awhile but wanted to vent and share this. Thanks for listening to my rant. XOXO

The CFR hasn't been Christian for 100 years. The fact is American Christians don't want war and by nature are isolationists. And have to be constantly tricked in to going to war.

Your neo-con, Schofield, Israel-first, American Protestants do have a great tendency to be war mongers but then again they are easily manipulated from the top.

I suspect if we last that long, in a decade, Schofield Christians will more rainbowized, and to the left of Trotsky than Obama or Hillary. Gay marriage and gay ministers will be as common as supporting Israel at the expense of America.
