Why our God is the right God?
There is a reason why the Bible is the most widely-read, most persecuted book in the history of human civilization. If everyone hates Christians, we must be on the right path.
Jesus said that the path to everlasting life is narrow, but the path to hell is wide.
In addition to that, how many prophecies in the Bible have been fulfilled!
Well, . . . not everyone DOES "hate Christians", so your conclusion is false. And it is as popular as it is because of the adoption of it by Rome centuries ago, . . . . Crusades that did significant damage to other religions, . . . and the use of "a great fear" for those who don't accept it. Those alone are not an avenue to truth.
As for "prophecies", . . . it is easy to see them as "fulfilled" when the so called "prophesy" is so vague that you can almost get anything out of the words to say what you want them to say [as a "fulfillment"]. I have found none of the "prophesies fulfilled" as compelling.
"it is easy to see them as “fulfilled” when the so called “prophesy” is so vague that you can almost get anything out of the words to say what you want them to say [as a "fulfillment"]."
This is not the case for most biblical prophecy (though some may simply be to prepare us for what is to come rather than to demonstrate credibility, after others already handle that), if we're honest. Isaiah's prophecies about Jesus for example, or Daniel's with highly specific details of nations to rise hundreds of years later, etc. Jesus himself offered some specific prophecies about events related to Rome that came true as well.
To tell us that you don't see these as convincing is not itself convincing because it's plain to see that to an objective observer, they really are. They're undeniable from any rational perspective. To deny them you have to embrace a mindset that could deny nearly any truth, which would obviously be unwise.
If you had really looked into it as you say, you realize these are unfakeable prophecies, not the kind of overvague ones you mention that characterize fraudulent prophecies from unbiblical sources. If not, then you should have been able to give convincing explanations of your view, but instead you just "threw the elephant."
As I said, I'm not the only one who has seen these "prophesies" and were not convinced. I've seen the Isaiah prophesies and most of the time the only SOUND similar in SOME of the components, some aspects turned into "metaphorical meanings" when they never were written that way. . . . .so "dogs surround me" are magically transformed into "Roman soldiers". Aspects of the older story that don't at all match are conveniently not included, . . . . or are [again] HIGHLY metaphoricalized into some "other meaning". It is all a matter of making something seem "prophetic" when it wasn't.
Can you pick out the "prophesy" of a "to be destroyed city" that still remains today?
I understand that you are "completely convinced by them". No problem. But please don't see my lack of convincing as "denying an actual truth". I just don't see it. . . . . and I am quite open minded!

I agree with the author. When St Paul was raised to the 3rd heaven, he said he heard “unspeakable” things. he did not reveal what he saw or heard.
Just like modern-day prophecies (especially ones with specific dates), NDEs are unreliable. It seems, that each person who has an NDE, what he or she sees is usually what they imagined prior to the NDE.
a 3 yr old boy saw Jesus on a rainbow-colored horse, having blue eyes blond hair. A neurosurgeon became a gnostic after an NDE, saying that NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO IN LIFE, ONLY UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AWAITS FOR YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
A real estate agent, after having a near-death experience, says, that hell is in the center of the earth, and that its exactly 300 F degrees there. Demons were 12 foot ugly lizards, etc.
You get the point.
It seems that what you see is the result of how you imagined it prior,

The witch that was trying to raise Samuel from the dead became terrified when she saw that Samuel actually appeared. She did not expect a real ghost to appear. God created that miracle. They do not just appear for no reason.

I read the book, and he was saying that demons do exist, and they can possess a person, but there is no such thing as ghosts haunting a house, or such. TheBlaze misinterpreted what he said.

After the last election, seeing how the GOP establishment took their loss, I decided to NEVER AGAIN vote republican straight-ticket. Going forward, I am voting ONLY for those that REALLY represent my morals and values, even if it means only local elections… even if it means that the GOP will never win another big election.

To yalk about something else. About 10 or 12 years ago Joe Scarborough was a pretty normal human. After He was at MSLSD for about 3,4 or 5 years He really lost His mind. Sometimes He can be normal, but with Lawanca O’donelle, Rev Al (NOT SO) Sharpton and these other fools running around Joe lost His mind. I would even say He lost His soul there. I voted for Him as a Congressman before.
JOE REALLY WAS NORMAL JUST A FEW YEARS AGO! PRETTY SAD WHAT THE LEFT CAN DO.
I guess He was weak? They could never change My mind. Not even a Billion Dollars would work.
Thats because its easier for them to pull you down, than for you to pull them up. Law of Gravity

We had a boy in our town that barely survived a pit bull attack. It was a pit bull he used to play with. http://www.wcnc.com/news/Rock-Hill-pit-bull–156431145.html
A pitbull is like a tiger: no matter how good you train him, one day he will snap.
These animals should be banned in residential neighborhoods. They are wild animals.
Wow! Paulie has 5 states!!! That’s a definite win!
P.S. I think Libertarians are THE BEST at economics, it’s just that….
I cant stand his paulbots. They are like occupy wall street from the right.
A true conservative is the best!

…although anarchy is not necessarily lawlessness, but also too much laws
The paulbots are lawless anarchists.
