    Well Magenta, Im not the only one from Europe and there are most likely more coming in.

    We don't need those bleeding heart Euros who disparage those who tell what Islam really is, what it teaches, and who their hero is. I support you if you wish to leave, was just pointing out that you have a unique perspective and some valuable input having gone through some of the things you have. That people use your age against you hmmm well, compared to many here, I am a relic from ages gone by but I'm sure as heck not going to let that stop me from speaking as the Spirit moves me to speak. You have experience lots of people here don't, coming out of the background that you have. For lots of people when they say Spiritual warfare, the idea is almost a philosophical conceptual conundrum.

    Maybe taking a break is a good idea. Recharge your batteries. Live your life. This web site has been here for many years. If you decide to come back after a week or two or a month or two or a year or two, hopefully there will be some here who will remember you when you return, and you them


    Also, don't let that guy rob you of your joy. You have a LOT to look forward to in life

    Hi Demi,


    I hope you'll change your mind. I don't have a lot of interaction with you because we end up on different threads. I don't even come to this thread very often. When I read this I was shocked because you're very much liked, loved and needed around here. And have you considered that you might need us......as unlikely as it may seem at the moment.


    Don't let the meanies gang up on you. Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. Don't let the words of others stay in your mind. Get rid of them and fast. Love and forgive them as you work it all through. In life we will always come across unloving and unkind people.


    I know I posted on one of the threads you mentioned. I was simply surprised (shocked might be a better word) that you didn't believe in the trinity. But I in no way meant to hurt you so if you were hurt by what I said I ask you to please forgive me.

    I can understand how you'd feel like this. But just know, you're one great girl and I'm convinced God is going to use you in great ways! I'd miss you a lot, but I understand if you have to leave for a while. I've been going to leave for a bit myself, actually.

    Magenta,

    I think you can be sweet and have good intentions, but the one major thing I disagree with you on is how you label people are Islam and lump them all in one category and they are all evil. Truth of the matter is they are lost souls who don't know any better and instead of treating them as evil we need to love on them and show them Gods love and unfailing mercy and that is how we lead them to Christ because Christ would love on them regardless. How you believe on this makes my heart just hurt and I don't know if you were personally victimized by an Islam person, but trust me we all have to let go at some time (Hugs)

    Hi Demi, I've never spoken to you before but I just wanted to tell you that you are a very courageous woman for what you do. You stand up for your beliefs even when you're mocked and ridiculed. Your love for Jesus is very genuine, I can tell. And you're an inspiration to many people on CC. Just yesterday I read one of your blog posts and was so impressed by your understanding. I know you already know this, but keep on taking every negative thought captive and make them obey Christ, keep putting on the armor of God and let the Spirit keep renewing your mind through His word, and rehearse your identity in Christ. Haters can say whatever they want, but you are God's daugther. And how He sees you is more important than what other people have to say.

    You're doing a great job Demi. Satan is upping his ante by using his arsenal weapons against you. He sees that you're going to be used mightly by God. Don't let him win. Keep fighting the good fight!

    Awww Demi, don't leave. One thing I learned here on CC is that there's always viscous people around just waiting for a chance to attack someone no matter who it is or how right or wrong they may be... That's just the nature of the beast when it comes to internet forums. That's why I stay out of the BDF (except for this thread). And also, sometimes you just have to ignore what's been said (hard as that may be) or it will just give the 'enemy' more fuel for the fire... And if you're going to get involved with controversial or heated topics, its best to remind yourself that those are the kinds of topics that crazy people tend to flock to, and we all know what its like dealing with crazy people..

    Demi

    True story.... When I first joined CC I thought wow a Christian site we will all love each other sing kum bah ya around the fireplace holding hands just a love fest.

    I was here about two weeks when the attacks really began called me a Judaizer and didn't even know what that was and many were just flat out mean... So I talked to God about it because I was thinking about leaving too although at that point no one would have cared at all if I stayed or left....

    I said God these Christians are MEAN....what's up with that? My answer was you need to stick around and show some of them what love is and be a good example for me. Besides they aren't really attacking you they are attacking Me.. (Wish I could say that I have been a good example but sometimes my human side shows too.)

    I did stick around and I'm so glad I did because I never would have met Tourist if I'd left and never would have made some of the very good friends if I'd gone....

    So it is Satan doing his work of chaos and meanness when Christians go on a rant trying to tear God's people away from Him and each other. There is nothing wrong with taking a break everyone needs alone time now and then but would hate to see you go for good. Again hugs for you....

    Same for me, it can get ugly (no pun intended) at times and people forget Christians are supposed to be kind and loving towards each other, however I've interacted with many cool people here it's been worth it

    Don't leave Demi, you're honestly one of my favorite people on here. However I do see where you are coming from. One of the reasons why I avoid those hot topic forums and just do fun threads. Hope you reconsider and stay but if you feel you need to leave , then God bless you in whatever you do.

    It is a sad thing when Christians attack each other. I see it here almost every time I visit. Makes me think of what is said in The Book of Romans:

    But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ. For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. Chapter 14, Vs. 10-13.

    Matthew 4:17) From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

    You have to remember, Christians like everybody else like to argue..Not right but it is still true, and like other people, Christians love to demonstrate how smart they are. When someone challenges the smart,and if the challenge can't be answered, accusation becomes the answer. How sad is that? People can be really small, but we're all growing.
