Rev. Akins - if that's how you feel then all religions should be deemed peaceful.
We shouldn't look at it through what is written, but what it has caused. I could go through a very large list of atrocities under the book:
1. The founding and enslavement of hundreds of countries, under the words: "I certify to you that, with the help of God, we shall powerfully enter in your country and shall make war against you ... and shall subject you to the yoke and obedience of the Church ... and shall do you all mischief that we can, as to vassals who do not obey and refuse to receive their lord and resist and contradict him."
2. 1492 - 1600's - The murder of near to all civilisations and tribes living in the Mexico and Central African lands. Under the eye of God, they slaughtered the Aztec's, a civilisation so unique that the Spanish couldn't bare it.
3. Nazi exterminations camps - Not just in Germany, but in Croatia too. Murdering anyone whom wasn't Catholic. Let me just add, the Pope was aware of this, and he even visited the camps.
4. The Crusades - Under the name of the lord, the Catholics would crusade on the Holy Lands, killing whatever they should find in their way. Millions of children murdered.
It may not be in the scripture, but since the book was written, the Catholics and many under the Christian name have murdered around the globe, under 'God's' name.
