RE: THIS is why Christianity is the RIGHT religion
Chas--There were tens of thousands of Christians there, and few of the "other".

Mr Woof--you are equivocating because you are mixing subjective and objective ethics here. Objective--it was "good to help out". Subjective--the reason so many Christians helped is not a good motivation. Either it was good to help or it wasn't. The reasons my family and friends gave for leaving for the Gulf included "these people need help" and "gosh, they have no homes..."

I'm told atheists on forums like TTA are bitter and angry. If you are not, your posts to me will be respectful, insightful and thoughtful. Prove me wrong by your adherence to decent behavior.

Repeating that without substantiating it doesn't help your argument.

Do you suppose the proportion of Christians to non-Christians there to help was the same as in the general population? That is a truer measure than just numbers.

RE: THIS is why Christianity is the RIGHT religion
A very good point. Since I consider only born agains valid Christians, yes, there were many more born agains on the ground than not.

Your sentence is semantically odd, unless you mean very few were floating in the air. Consider

If what you actually meant was that there were more born-again Christians helping than others, you have yet to provide any substantiation of it.

Trans-substantiation no problemo, provided you already believe that's what's happening. What's substantiation? The BIBLE provides all the prood any thinking person needs.

You must mean in the same way that you said certain organizations helped and I said, "From a distance without boots on the ground" and then you shifted to attack my position after my point was made.

No, I didn't shift anything; I pointed out that they were actually there, e.g. Canada's help.

Please stop lying about what I did or didn't say.

No, you pointed to their help (originally) and I reminded you that thousands of Christians were there while some others including whole governments were represented in absentia.

You have yet to substantiate any of your claims. Canada's response.

RE: THIS is why Christianity is the RIGHT religion
I'm pretty sure Abraham, David, Isaiah, Daniel, etc. knew the gospel to an extent and accepted it. Look at Genesis 22, Psalm 110, Isaiah 53, and Daniel 9:24-25.
