“Slay the idolators wherever ye find them”
“Fight those who believe not in Allah… nor acknowledge the religion of truth”
“Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips off them”
“O prophet exhort the believers to fight”
“If nature is proof of God’s amazing creation then I have truly seen the light, and the light is black. Nature is genius at its most cruel and savage. No benevolent God could have come up with such an outrage.”
If [a child] is normally intelligent, he is almost bound to get the impression that there is something odd about religious statements. If he is taken to church, for example, he hears that death is the gateway to eternal life, and should be welcomed rather than shunned; yet outside this he sees death regarded as the greatest of all evils, and everything possible is done to postpone it. The child soon gets the idea that there are two kinds of truth. The ordinary kind, and another rather confusing and slightly embarrassing kind, into which it is best not to inquire too closely. Now all this is bad intellectual training.
We are not sinful not merely because we have eaten of the tree of knowledge, but also because we have not eaten from the tree of life.
Sunday school is a prison in which children do penance for the evil conscience of their parents.
There is in every village a torch: The schoolmaster – and an extinguisher: The Parson.
It’s possible to pull out justification for imposing your will on others, simply by calling your will God’s will.
If the concept of a father who plots to have his own son put to death is presented to children as beautiful and as worthy of societies admiration, what types of human behaviour can be presented to them as reprehensible?

The word of God is Yes and Amen! God is not a man that He will lie. As we must keep His words, “we shall not suffer a witch to live”. Therefore with constant prayer and fasting witches and wizards must not live but either repent or suffer consequences in Jesus’ Name.! Amen. Exodus 22:18.’

I have been engaged in an intense spiritual warfare with a genuine natural witch for over 10 years. NEVER in my wildest dreams prior to this did I ever believe they existed! So far I have the upper hand and I learned invaluable methods to counterattack and minimize and stop her demonic evil. I have only done so with prayer in the Name of Jesus. I will never physically harm this unrepentant witch – I always give her to God because He is the One she must answer to.’
