HOW LOUD DOES THE DEVIL LAUGH ?
Catholics and Protestants killing each other.....and the devil laughs !
To find Catholics and Protestants killing each other in the name of their faith is certain evidence that the devil may exist, and the joke is on us.
Where is the proof?
The king of deception went by many names...but the most revealing is "the light that deceives".....light usually is a metaphor for truth.....and knowing that perhaps the deceptive "half-truth" may be a concrete example of such a force....A half-truth is a truth that is a lie; a paradox.....so deceptive is this concept that it has been incorrectly defined until , the current definition is incorrect.
If the devil does exist, the devil would surely divide a people, a community a nation a world.....and better yet be able to persuade fellow countrymen, even fellow christians to kill each other, .....in the name of Jesus Christ.....that would be deception.
But it is happening, throughout the world.....especially in Ireland where Catholics, are killing Protestants, and Protestants are killing Catholics, (not to ignore the Catholics and Protestestants who kill themselves) when in fact these people are really Christians..............Catholic+Christians, or Protestant+Christians killing each other in the name of Jesus Christ........; this is a paradox since Jesus Christ taught the truth "love one another, and pray for your enemies;" is this not proof the devil exists.
The devil must be laughing seeing People of one country, People of the same religion, killing each other based on half-truths; Protestant or Catholic, yet still Christians. Not only the same Christians, but the same Irish countrymen.....This is truly a joke on us all......especially Christians.
