As a Christian, I have to admit that we have a long history of killing people than any other religion, and we might even hold the record for the number of bodies we have buried.
It is a small fraction of everything in our society, no different than this,

Open Doors releases its annual World Watch List 2023 confirming that one out of every seven Christians in the world suffers high levels of persecution and discrimination for their faith.

I came across these videos while researching this latest Middle Eastern conflict. I used to think that only Muslims hated Christians, and all Muslims hated Christians, but clearly it isn’t all Muslims, and it isn’t just Muslims who hate Christians, I see other Religions also hate chrisitians, and again it is only a small fraction of them who do.
The Western media focuses on the evils Muslims do and the hatred we should have for them. We should hate no one and should never call for their death.

Old testament, very different times, common for the victor of war to kill everyone, no one would be left to seek vengeance , We have grown from those days and would no longer do such a thing, but would ham-ass , that is the danger

Jesus freed us from that past, Christians have no responsibility for Old Testament wars
So why are people who preach and practice Love, Forgiveness and personal salvation hated by so many?
I have no idea dennis, since we have Christians who preach murder who are not documented or on record as such
If there is a devil and he thrives on chaos and human suffering then it would make sense he would target anyone or group preaching Love and Forgiveness
