    There are some things that "should" be a clue - and I would think we might all be willing to learn from such examples.

    For example - the Atheist.

    1. It should be a "clue" (wake up call) to an atheist that something is not right if they were to stop and take their own argument seriously - that the God the Christian Bible is just as phony as the easter bunny, or Satan Clause or... IF that is really true - then when they curse and swear - why is it not consisting entirely of things like "the Easter Bunny condemn you!" or "Santa CLAUSE! that really hurts!". Why are they so bent on going after the God of the Bible when ostensibly they are equally inclined to believe in the Easter Bunny as having value?

    example - the non-Christian Jew.

    2. Jews have a tendency to be very tolerant of fellow atheist, agnostic, new age ... etc (you name it) Jews. This is true for all Jews - except for Christian Jews. They all tend to reject Christian Jews. How is that possible given that Christian Jews are claiming to accept the Jewish Messiah - while the atheists and agnostic and new agers reject every tenet of Judaism.

    To the non-Christian Jew this should be a "wake up call" (clue) that there is something special about the Christian religion - the one that has changed the entire world - and also claims to have found the Messiah.

    Example - the Catholic Christian.

    3. The most logical solution for the dark age mismanagement of the Holy Roman Empire by the Catholic church - is to argue that this was the dark ages for mankind, that superstition and poor choices were the rule of the day... mistakes were made and we should not hold the Catholic church in the enlightened age of today - responsible for what other Catholic people did in the dark ages.

    This is even more true given that most American Catholics vote in favor of Democrat politicians promoting abortion an gay rights "ostensibly" because the Catholic that is voting is so much "MORE" concerned about the civil rights and welfare of all people on welfare - even over the cost of promoting those abortion and gay rights programs.

    SO THEN - the "wake up call" for the Catholic should be "Lateran IV" where the "extermination of heretics" is called for by an ecumenical council. Thus supposedly "infallible". No catholic would vote for such a thing today - but they are then stuck with the choice of giving up infallibility for the church (with the benefit of disconnecting themselves from agreement with the atrocities of the RCC dark ages) - or else the distasteful choice of clinging to the claim infallibility and then "owning the RCC atrocities" of the dark ages.

    Can't have it both ways.

    in Christ,
