That's because Nigerians are not matured to deal with atheist. Even in developed and advanced countries like the USA atheist are hated and discriminated up on.
I sympathize with you. But I need to remind you that christians are the most persecuted in every part of the world since the death of christ.

Its not true. Christians have persecuted many people all over the world. Christianity has been the religion of dome of the biggest empires in he world. Empires that enslaved and colonized others, alot of the religion was spread through conquest, so what exactly are you crying about?

Yet with all the atrocities you claim Christians have carried out, just 100 years of "permitted" atheist communism reign brought about over 200million murders of the religious. A figure that dwarfs the atrocities of Christians by a ratio of 200 : 1 despite the fact that Christianity has been around for milleniums more.

Cry me a Noah' s flood. And your God stood by and watched as athiest were slaughtering his alleged beloved creations abi? What a mighty God you people really serve. He even watched as Hilter and his people slaughtered over 6 million of his "Chosen ones" without being able to do anything.

You just played yourself again cheesy

This your kryptonite strong men.

Thank you for once again confirming the worldwide repulsive atrocities of 100 years of atheistic control.

God did not have to interfere Afterall he already gave man DOMINION over the earth to subdue it. God keeps his word.

This world is a place of tests and preparations and he gave us guidelines on how to pass the tests and prepare. But those who reject such guidelines such as atheists do would show their rejection by commiting mass genocide of people due to their hatred for God and all he stands for.

Who would you then blame? God or his rejection?

You are the one that actually played yourself.

So dominating the earth includes killing millions of people ? Why then do you pray to your God for protection and thank him for providence in general?

So Moses rejected God because he was a mass murderer. What about christian Roman emperors that went about killing many people and forcefully converting them to christianity? According to you they also showed their rejection of God abi? The conquistadors and Americans that killed 10s of millions of the native Americans while spreading Christianity to them also rejected the ways of your God according to you abi? The slave traders and colonizers that enslaved Africans and forcefully and systematically converted them to christianity while killing millions of them in the process also rejected this God of yours abi? Well done , keep playing with yourself.

dominion

sovereignty or control.
the territory of a sovereign or government.

Keep on playing yourself.


control
noun
the power to influence or direct people's behaviour or the course of events.

Keep playing yourself


sovereignty
noun
supreme power or authority

The dominion given to man was total. Man could take life but God Adviced against it by saying love your neighbour as yourself but of course those who reject God also reject his laws. Reminds me of atheists! cheesy

If you read my post well you would realise your last statements are simply spoken out of your ignorance.

That means most of the people that spread christianity reject your God's laws because they didn't love their neighbors as they loved themselves. They forcefully enslaved them, killed many of them, took their lands, dominated them and forcefully convered them, colonized them and on and on. Things that had nothing to do with love. The slave merchants and colonizers brought christianity to us in Africa. Keep playing with yourself.

Yes they did all that but are those the instructions of God and manner of living that God gave?

However they had zeal without knowledge

Proverbs 19:2

It is not good to have zeal without knowledge, nor to be hasty and miss the way.


Romans 10: 1-4 mark the words


Brothers and sisters, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be saved. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge. Since they did not know the righteousness of God and sought to establish their own, they did not submit to God’s righteousness. Christ is the culmination of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.


Self explanatory!

But christianity is what it is today because of them and what they did to make it grow.

Why are you quoting some verse about Israelites and their zealous ways as written in the bible to me na? Were the conquistadors Israelites? Or were the European slave traders and colonizers Israelites?

You seem to be a bit too myopic for your own good.

The words spoken in scripture is applicable to all who fall into the same category for which it was spoken about.

If In Germany they are teaching a group of students chemistry would you say another group of students who need it in Malawi are also not being taught the very same chemistry?

They had zeal without knowledge. They chose to act in zeal but against the laws and ways of God. They had the desire to spread this gospel but had no knowledge.

Proof of what I am saying was when Jesus was to be arrested and Peter cut of the ear of one of the soldiers Jesus quickly reprimanded him by telling him to put away his sword.

Cease from being myopic.

That means this verse also apply to all women because fall into the category.

1 Corinthians 14:33-35
"For God is not a God of disorder but of peace.
As in all the congregations of the saints , women should remain silent in the churches. They are not allowed to speak, but must be in submission, as the Law says. If they want to inquire about something, they should ask their own husbands at home; for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the church".

They had the desire to spread the gospel but had no knowledge as you claim and God didn't teach them but stood by and watched them commit mass murder, enslave people, colonize them, all in their quest to spread his word and bring people to him abi? Interesting.

Yes it does apply to all women WHO FALL INTO THE SAME CATEGORY FOR WHICH IT WAS SPOKEN. Did you miss that part?

The women in that scripture were being stubborn and causing chaos so when such is observed in any assembly of the saints then this scripture is applicable anywhere in the world.

Wake up from being myopic.

Like I said, God already gave man dominion and I already broke it down to you so stop repeating that last part. It's already dealt with.

Fear comes when you're not sure of what is happening and you're just following the crowds.
Most people claiming Christians are just follow follow for real,it's where the crowds are going that they join. But true Christians can stand on their own even if he/she is the only believer in his house,neighborhood,town, city or even a whole country!
