The more insults I get here, the more my theory is proved right. No wonder the most advanced countries in the world are the least religious, because beleiving in superbeings corrupts the mind.
I do appreciate foreign things and being introduced to new ways of doing things. Problem was christianity came with a hidden agenda.. and its theories don´t add up. it is a vehicle for opperessing the weak and poor.
I admit my reaction was very low there. I'm not good at low blows but I lost my cool.I apologise. But that doesn't mean my response represents other Christian's views either so your conclusion is based on false statistics and foolish preconceived notions.
I still can't figure out why you started off glorifying the white man and his sophistication/factories etc, then in the next vein you spurn him as a villain (vapambepfumi). You sound very mixed up in ideas and philosophy. I put it to reading too many big books and listening to many empty slogans from political rallies bellowed from under some tree by a misguided individual, maybe I'm wrong. You will prove me.
Now tell me did you drool at those cities I just showed you? Is it somewhere you are eager to relocate to right now because its the best place you have ever heard off.....where people are dying of various cancers, asthmas, and other unimaginable diseases because the factories there have clogged up the atmosphere and water with every kind of poison that you can dig out of the earth. Where fish, bats, bees and wildlife (God's creation) are vanishing from the earth through mysterious illnesses due to pollution. I'm not sure you will be one of the first to buy a ticket to go and settle there.
To answer your question......some of us just want the simple and plain life of knowing that we are children being led by a loving Father in heaven. we do not concern ourselves with the sophistication of "factories" and industry as you put it. But we do take pride in knowing that all the things man boasts of shall come to pass and are coming to pass. You of course are welcome to make your choice as you have rightly done.
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
I had intimated further by suggesting the ideal locations where you would most fit in seeing that you are obsessed with factories
that way you will not be offended by the simple life of Christians, but rather you will be in your own good company and have much to share with your kith and kin in the fumes of pollution from your factories
. Is it a deal? Or you build us one factory in Zimbabwe then we know what you are talking about.
Which factory in particular fascinates you the most?
