oh please. do some research on things of a spiritual nature. Oh I forgot, you don't believe in those things.sleep paralysis
Sleep paralysis is a condition that occurs in the state just before"The Nightmare" by Johann Heinrich Fussli, 1781 dropping off to sleep (the hypnagogic state) or just before fully awakening from sleep (the hypnopompic state). The condition is characterized by being unable to move or speak. It is often associated with a feeling that there is some sort of presence, a feeling which often arouses fear..
gotcha a demon do ya?
Jesus can cure that too.
Most people are quite fearful of facing what is inside them.. the demons.. the monsters.. you should give it a try though.
I haven't any issues with people of any religion. Religion, per se, can be a issue. However, when people seek God, sincerely in truth, that is a different matter altogether. Learn to differentiate between the cradle follower of religion and the sincere seeker of God. Big difference. You'll find seekers of God in any religion.. even satanists, wiccans, new agers.. often just end up there for a short while because they are lost and seeking, albeit in all the wrong places. you can find plenty of testimonies on the web, at youtube, wherever. Funny thing is.. those sincere seekers of God.. they all end up preaching Jesus.
They should respect other religions too and stop trying to turn each land they are in into a muslim place.
and the jews too. shall we discuss mormons? humanists?
but that's religion for you. Islam seems to going through a phase quite similar to what the Catholic church went through in the middle ages. It is 500-600 years younger than christianity so that's still right on time historically. I hope they have their reformation soon.
I heard a show put out out by al jazeera radio, I think it was at youtube.. I may have a link I could look around.. but some Imam was complaining that 6 million or so muslims convert to christianity each year. give it some time, God is working on this. The muslims, the jews, they can write all the laws against christian proselytizing they want.. it will not stop God from his work.
I do respect the muslims for taking certain strong stands here and there against humanist atheistic movements especially, as poorly educated as some muslims are, simply due to poverty.. you know they have a lot of problems some of these are the poorest of the poor.. but on the other hand some of them are very well educated and they hold their ground on a lot of issues christians cave into. Yeah, i do respect them for that, absolutely.
