After watching a video about Bible accurate angels.... I can understand why many Christian artists decided to paint the angels as beautiful humans with wings. It does explain why it always seems the first thing they say to humans is "Be not afraid." That's a meme. Not christianity. The ac...

It depends where you live, in some places there are criminal organizations which exploit and abuse beggars to gather money. In those cases it's better to avoid giving money, and give instead food and other things needed, as those things can't be converted back easily to money. Fresh food is the best...

Does anyone here believe that for someone to be a good Christian and purify themselves, it may be necessary to take a retreat or a spiritual journey of sorts out from society and into nature for a little while? That's more or less the base idea on which monasticism was built. It isn't an uniquely c...

Now all you need to do is stop calling other religions and cultures demonic.

Why? It's not like you know what demonic means. (given your silence to the question, up to now)

Yeah, most of the list is pretty silly. Not all of it though, post-modernism and twilight films are pretty cursed. I'm let down the pokemons weren't included in there. But maybe that list is older than 1995. As much as it's a funny game to count them, the number doesn't really matter. One entry-poi...
