    I am not a very religious person, but, I can't believe how much hatred there is in various forums with all the religious posts.
    I think the only worse mud slinging is involved in politics.
    Both are just as confusing, and tiresome.

    I actually received a message from someone on Facebook who I do not know sending this phrase. "Gather all ye for the fury of Jehova." I don't know about you, but I am going to find out where this gathering is, and go as far away from that place as possible.

    You want to hear even worse. My brother's Church has an empty house that they are trying to sell or rent, and I have been looking for someplace
    less expensive to live. My brother tells me, you wouldn't be able to live there because it is right next to our church, and we really want someone with Christian values living there.

    In short. NO FAGS! He didn't say it in those exact words, but, I knew exactly what he meant. So, good luck renting that out to someone who claims have Christian values, while they go around breaking the rest of the ten commandments. God forbid they might eat shellfish, or eat a three hoof creature on a Sunday! AWEFUL!! While they have lustful thoughts of each other...Tisk tisk tisk.

      I think the internet has allowed what I hope are minority opinions share their philosophy. I don't see where they have gained any followers, so I would assume it hasn't had much effect either way. And consider yourself lucky you can't move into that house. I sold some land to a Christian church. I assumed they would be good neighbors. Worst mistake I ever made.

      I urge you to avoid the back stabbing and bickering that you see in the Hub Pages Forum Section. That is not normal responding or behaviour for those of us that are seeking to spread God's word with others. Non-believers and Non-Christians love to hang around the religion forum for an opportunity to attack believers and drwa them into arguments, they live for this confrontation because they have no peace or happiness in their own lives, and wish to destroy the peace love harmony and happiness that Christians have.

      In answer to the original question as to whether or not Hub Pages has helped in the ability of Christians to promote Christianity through the sharing of God's Holy word with others, my answer is yes definitely. If you read my Hub Writings, you will see for yourself. Primarily my writing promotes Christian Religion and religious beliefs, based upon what I believe is God's Holy Words, written by man in The Holy Bible. This is my belief, my Faith and I defend it against all who would seek to destroy God, His words or me.

      I also offer other Hubs on cooking for I believe in nourishing the body as well as the mind and the soul.

      I agree with that. The Westboro church comes to mind. If stoning was legal in this country like it is still is in a few others. I would like to get a few thousand people togther and stone that church into sawdust. Then buy the land out from under it, and set it on fire.

      Ahmadiyya Community following the teachings of the Promised Messiah 1835-1908 to use the modern technology for spread of the peaceful and truthful Religion; internet is one of them.

      It does help a lot.
