By this point, we all know of your hatred for anything Protestant, so would you please stop beating us over the head with it?
The vast majority of them were simply looking for somewhere to make a better life for themselves.
OK ...I will shut it down.
One last point I beg...
How can someone "simply" look for somewhere to make a better life for themselves in somebody Else's country and land?
Is it really "simple" to do that?
Considering that we are already after the fact I guess the answer should be clear.
These people may have had "innocent" intentions but the results were mass murder and a "grab-and-snatch fiasco" all on a global scale. As a result Europeans have morphed into so many different nationalities from South African to Australian and everything in between and of course the same goes for their African slaves; the descendants of which are dotted all over the planet.
Do you how many innocent women and children were thrown over board of these missionary / slave dealing / land grabbing boats? ....Millions. There are millions of skeletons at the bottom of the Atlantic. It is the worlds largest grave yard. There are more Africans laying on the bottom of this waterway than walking on American soil right now.The majority of the dead are African captives.
Some were Christians already according to ship logs I have seen. One ship log I read this from is framed and mounted hanging on a wall in my father-in-laws house. He is an expert on the transatlantic slave trade and before retiring traveled the country teaching and lecturing on this subject and black history in general.
One thing I can say is that these were surely very strong very fierce and very brave people. These may be redeeming qualities to some people I hope.
I do not "hate" protestants. I reject the mindset as well as the nature and character of this pitiful lot.
I am not the enemy of the protestant. The history they have made for themselves of which I only remark on here is what causes the lack of respect and disdain people maintain when they stop and think about what has really happened because of them.
I have a hard time finding righteous or even Christlike intentions in the whole nightmare that is the protestant world.
In Christ time the question was asked.."Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" the area was a haven of despair. But the answer was YES!...Jesus!
I ask this question now....Can any good thing come out of protestantism? The answer to me is ... "who knows; I leave that to God...but I will steer clear of it and all its influences as much as possible....God is the judge of that".
Thus RC and Universal Catholics (the Orthodox) carry the only valid truth which is the Church.
Whatever else is out there has Gods grace and as such has Gods mercy. We must pray for them and for ourselves especially "them" since they are not
within the confines of the Holy Church and are thus subject to all kinds of doctrines and schemes caused by the temptations of the devil.
Within the Holy Church we are protected for such 'carrying on' and temptation. The Holy Church is our protection while in this world.
