I could probably sleep at night if George Soros was the one on fire
I would rather see him in jail. As in, with a webcam. And a call-in number so anyone can call and say whatever they want through the speaker in the room.

Really wouldn’t cause me much distress, either.

You scan through Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and tell me where Jesus (that would be all the words in red letters) tells his disciples to burn the witches alive. I’ll wait, while you get right on that.
In the bible is not what I said. I said, The people that burned the witches were Christian. The red letter King James version is not my preference when reading the bible.

And tell me where in either the Old or New testament there is a clause that exempts witches to be killed... The way I read the Decalog (Exodus 20:2-17 & Deut. 5:6-21) the book says "Thou shalt not kill" and that includes witches, soldiers, murderers, etc... This biblical statute is organic and isn't advisory... Shall in this statute means NO! But let's not allow the delusion to get in the way of wishful thinking & Xian ideology...
Thou shall not kill. The translation is not fully correct. The word KILL was meant to be MURDER.

Aren't all religions man made?
They may have been Christian in name, but not in attitude and in action. Those people believed in witchcraft and that there were covens of witches in their midst using witchcraft against them. We won’t get into whether or not there is such a thing as witchcraft, that’s another discussion. In my opinion, their problem was that first, they were not living their lives believing in the power of Christ to keep them from harm from the witchcraft they believed in. Second, they let their fear overcome their good judgement and God’s command to treat their fellow human beings with respect and love. Their goal should have been to live fearlessly and try to convert the covens of witches, Individually or collectively, if possible. Third, their fear led them to break God’s command to not murder their fellow human beings. They were wrong on all levels and abandoned the teachings of Christ on every level.

Considering that Christians believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and we also believe that Jesus was God incarnate, we also therefor believe that Christianity is not a religion, but a relationship with the Creator of all things and is God made, not man made. Those individuals and communities that burned witches, did so out of fear, not power and were all guilty of murder. It was not a Christian thing to do, at all. That is my point.

Actually, when I go to the hardware store to buy a level, I ALWAYS try it out in the store. I find that there is never more than ONE out of TEN levels that are "correct" in BOTH the horizontal and vertical positions.
Way to do it? - Set on counter or wall, see where the bubble is located, then turn it around and see if you get a corresponding reading.
Only problem is finding a 45 degree slope for the 3rd bubble (if there is one). For that, you have to go to the section where they sell triangular squares...

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he
asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money
from you, I'm doing community service this week.'
The florist was pleased and left the shop.
When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a
'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.
Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing
community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop.
The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank
you' card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.
Then a Member of Congress came in for a haircut, and when he went to
pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from
you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Member of Congress
was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen
Members of Congress lined up waiting for a free hair cut And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.
If you don't forward this you have no sense of humour
