If you really want to get outraged do so about the Defiling of Christmas and Easter by rampant consumerism and Idolotry. You allow Santa to detract from Christ with his magical powers, and the Easter Bunny to detract from Christ by bringing candy to your kids etc. You and the churches buy into this harmful BS which would be a real affront to JC and that is why Christianity today is viewed as a joke by so many and is not respected. The BJ team is the least of Christianity's problems. (It is no problem at all).

Can any of you ever imagine Muslims or Jews allowing their high Holy Days being hijacked as Christians surely have?

Don't mess with Muslims for sure, Jews either, but Christians, have at it because they truly are viewed by many as a joke.

If you really care about Christianity stop the gift buying orgy and the Santa BS and don't let your kids be taught this garbage. Same for Easter, otherwise you might just as well be worshipping the Golden Calf.

CP, do not ever attempt to speak for me again! I can speak for myself. I do not need you or anyone else attributing untruths to my persona! I have not allowed any of these things to happen in my personal life. Unfortunately I have no control over what society as a whole, various church groups, and/or goverments have decided to do and I can't undo what's been going on for hundreds of years. I can't control what others say or do, and quite frankly I wouldn't want to have that power to limit their freedom. You know that very well, and yet you decided to launch a personal attack against me and tthree and act like we caused the whole thing.

But you're right about one thing. The name of Christianity has been dragged into the mud, and it's been dragged into the mud by hypocrites, charletons and those who simply call themselves Christians when in fact they are not. I just found one such group and I called them out on it. Maybe that's not much in the grand scheme of things, but I'm doing what I can. I'm sorry I can't make the commercialism of Christmas and Easter disappear for you, but I can choose to celebrate these holidays as I see fit or not at all if I so choose, and you're free to do the same.

I'm still not sure if you are claiming we're profiting from the documentary, or by announcing that we follow Jesus, that will make us more money on our website? Because I don't believe either is the case, and definitely not our motivation. But getting ripped into on a discussion forum from someone who doesn't know me feels unfair. If you'd like to talk over the phone, that would be great. Private Message me and I'll give you my phone number.

Other than that, I'd ask that people confront me personally if you have issues with how I run my business or if you believe I'm taking advantage of people. (Matthew 18:15-18)
Stop the double talk! I was very clear in what I stated. You are either not a Christian or you are a very hypocritical Christian and Christianity does not need more hypocrites! We've got way too many of those already.

21,

Sorry to upset you, but your post attacking Colin was so much Bull-shi# and full of aggression, supposedly in the defense of Christianity, I felt you really needed a lesson in the real threats to Christianity.

I guess you will just have to deal with it, as Colin has to deal with your over the top slam.

Happy Holidays,
CP
