So if the shooter had a sincere realization of his crime as he stood there looking at the bodies and realized he needed Christ and prayed for salvation, and then still overwhelmed with guilt, shot himself in the head, he would go to heaven? And if the teacher who died protecting her students rejected the bible and Jesus for a lack of evidence, she would go to hell? Where do you stand on the scenario as I've laid it out?

You are correct. And that further illustrates what is wrong with Christianity. Blasphemy is a worse sin than murder.

If you don't mind my asking, what denomination are you? The reason I ask is because most do not hold a teaching that suicide is a universally damnable sin which is what you are advocating. In fact, what you are suggesting is that if one of these parents who is Christian, found the murder of their child so tormenting that they killed themselves, they would go to hell. You would find very few Christians who would accept that notion.

People have used their faith, be it Christianity, Islam, whatever to commit horrendous acts for centuries. By the way, what does Jesus intend to do with non-believers when he returns? Annihilate them, right?

Evolution is a fact. It is observable, settled science. Denying it is akin to saying the earth is flat. Heck, even Pat Robertson has acknowledged as much. And by the way, if you believe in the biblical account of creation you do believe in the magical creation of something from nothing. You are attempting a very weak arguement for a first cause. Just one of the many problems with that arguement is the natural question of 'what caused god?'

Under most Christian teaching, it is not necessary to ask forgiveness for each individual sin. One must merely acknowledge and confess that they are a sinner and accept salvation through Jesus.

I beg to differ. Under Christianity, practicing Jews will be going to hell as they don't believe that Jesus is the messiah and reject the plan of salvation as outlined in Romans.

Sorry, sister. Natural selection is a fact. It has been proven scientifically and is documented by volumes of research as has evolution. As far as Hitler is concerned, that is a fact also.

We are a people of different faiths, but we are one. Which faith conquers the other is not the question; rather, the question is whether Christianity stands or falls.... We tolerate no one in our ranks who attacks the ideas of Christianity... in fact our movement is Christian. We are filled with a desire for Catholics and Protestants to discover one another in the deep distress of our own people.

It will take Christianity, as the basis of our collective morality, and the family as the nucleus of our Volk and state, under its firm protection....May God Almighty take our work into his grace, give true form to our will, bless our insight, and endow us with the trust of our Volk.

We were convinced that the people needs and requires this faith. We have therefore undertaken the fight against the atheistic movement, and that not merely with a few theoretical declarations: we have stamped it out.

Those are all quotes from Adolf Hitler and there are many more. He was a Christian, Sister. If that bothers you, it's not my problem.

Congratulations, once again, Sister! According to your answer, you are more moral than god. Having the power and ability to prevent evil and choosing not to is not moral no matter how you want to rationalize it with the "free will" argument, which has been debunked to death by the way. I can do it here again in this forum, if you like.

Hitler was most definitely a Christian and made many speeches explicitly mentioning his faith. I can quote some if you like as there are many. And congratulations, Sister! You actually get to say that Mother Teresa was a better human than Hitler. So do I as well as anyone with a rational mind and the ability to evaluate evidence. You avoided my question sister. Your supposed god had the power and ability to prevent this tragedy, to save the lives of those children and teachers and he chose not to. Why is that? I am awaiting your answer.
