What happened to the hundreds of millions of Native Americans and Chinese people that never heard of Jesus or the Gospel and didn't accept his sacrifice for the first 1,500 years of Christianity? Did they go to heaven after they died? Well in that case I guess you don't need to believe in Jesus to get to heaven.

since the Logos is part of every person (we are made in his image), if they heeded their God given conscience they are "a law unto themselves"

Romans 2

11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

12 For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;

13 (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

14 For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the things contained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:

15 Which shew the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing one another;)

They get resurrected on the Last Judgement. Those who are judged to be righteous will join Jesus in fighting the forces of Satan at Armageddon.

The popes already clarified this as soon as we've encountered the natives. Atheist smartasses late to the party by hundreds of years, typical.
They got dealt with justly.

"Therefore hearken unto me, ye men of understanding: far be it from God, that he should do wickedness; and from the Almighty, that he should commit iniquity.
For the work of a man shall he render unto him, and cause every man to find according to his ways.
Yea, surely God will not do wickedly, neither will the Almighty pervert judgment."
- Job 34:10-12

Were the Teutonic Knights basically Vikings?
>Raided Christians
>Enslaved Slavs
>Allied with other Vikings (Danes)
>Powerful Baltic navy
>Even wore horned helmets
They were influence by Normans conquerer mindset and Venetian greedily & cleverness
No they were basically Ancient Greeks
>Raided their enemies
>Lead large expeditions for money, fame and land
>Founded colonies
>Large naval presence
>Heavily involved in fighting on foot with small elite forces and conscripted 'brothers'
>Used locals to fight alongside them
Compared to the Greeks they basically have nothing in common with Vikings

How influential and revolutionary was the American Revolution for its time? The Revolutionary War led to the drafting of the Constitution which reflected the social and political realities of the time, including the prevalent attitudes towards race, gender, and class. The Constitution would ultimately exclude the experiences of marginalized groups such as enslaved people and women as both groups were denied basic human rights. Enslaved people were recognized as property rather than citizens or human beings, while women were largely sidelined from political participation and lacked legal recognition in many aspects of society. Although the revolution drew on Enlightenment principles such as liberty, republicanism, and democracy, how would one measure its legacy?

profound ideological shifts, particularly regarding ideas of governance, rights, and representation. Concepts such as liberty, democracy, and republicanism gained prominence, influencing political thought not only in the United States but also globally.

More revolutionary than Europeans want to believe but less revolutionary than Americans want to believe.
It blew the starting whistle on independence movements from the mother country, but in my opinion, the single most important legacy of the American revolution is the sentence “all men are created equal.” Not joking. Yes, it was hypocritical. Yes it was written by a slave holder. Yes it was not enforced. Yes it, at least explicitly, excludes women. But having that statement, with no weasely qualifications that would make it more “accurate” to it’s writer’s circumstances, be near the top of the first ever independent formerly-colonial republic’s founding document, was revolutionary for the time, and still is today. There hasn’t been a single subsequent debate about rights and liberty that hasn’t looked back to that sentence for basic justification.
>How influential and revolutionary was the American Revolution for its time?
The American Revolution's greatest legacy is the fact that it caused the French Revolution, which turned the entire Western social/political/economic order on its head. In terms of actual ideology, I don't think it had that much of a lasting impact. The early French revolutionaries, like Lafayette, were very much taking their cues from the American Revolution, but they were quickly steamrollered by the Jacobins, Girondins, later the Thermidoreans, and eventually the Bonapartes.

The only reason the American Revolution is more than a historical footnote, a predecessor helping spark the French revolution, is the fact that the US became the world's dominant power about 200 years later.
>in my opinion, the single most important legacy of the American revolution is the sentence “all men are created equal" ... was revolutionary for the time, and still is today.
This retains a pull on people in other countries. Americans don't think about it much, but last time I was in D.C., I went over to the Jefferson memorial and met a guy from Djibouti who came up to me and was asking questions, about who was who, and oh, that's Jefferson here, and Lincoln over there... and was genuinely "into it" in a way that 4chan shut-ins are with weird ideologies that alienate girls. Kind of an Ameriboo I guess but who knows what kind of tribalism and ethnic conflict goes on there. I thought the Christian rock band D.C. Talk presented that line with a lot of punch and power:
It was a major advancement in the concept of putting freedom and liberty to practice and an advancement in showing the possibilities that existed, and this actually being real caused the world to shift in that direction as a whole. In particular, the idea of not dictating what subjects must believe in was an absolutely revolutionary concept. It is one that the Constitutional framers borrowed from the Rhode Island charter of 1663, which at that time had been unlike anything in the entire world at the time.

Nowadays, many of these things are simply taken for granted, and I don't mind the fact. In actual practice they started in the U.S. and people still today value and realize the possibilities of freedom in many parts of the world where it is lacking.

How much further will you go? Your goal is to try to keep off the hyperconcentration and dereliction of antitrust for as long as possible within the 2000s cultural landscape. No rape, but you can suggest everything up to penetration.
Considering Microsoft did not manufacture their own PC hardware, the grounds for antitrust litigation always seemed dubious to me at best, especially when you compare to what Apple regularly gets away with today
Complete dismantling a la Standard Oil and AT&T, then go for Apple next
It's not about the hardware; it's about the OS unfairly preferencing that butt of jokes over other browsers. It's a tying issue and it always has been, and Apple's the worst of them all. Epic sued them for that very thing, in fact, and won. They won for a while, but now they're being eaten alive by every government agency and corporation on the planet because they refused to create their own contingency plan.

For what it's worth, going harsher also means Apple stays the quirky overpriced Adobe machine and MP3 player maker of San Francisco hooha let's pretend the Chinese slaves don't exist it was, because Jobs wouldn't think he can operate with impunity in a world that strikes down M$. He might, but despite how retarded he got later I don't think he'd pick that fight.
This. BeOS might not have died, BlackBerry could still be making those sweet BB10 phones, plus GNU/Linux and the BSDs would be in a much less marginalized position.
I don't. Japanese have much laxer antitrust laws than anything the US enforces and they're fine. Big business is good business.

Why would Satan make himself so obviously evil to the point where any negative traits about anything can be attributed to him? Isn't that missing the point? Shouldn't Satan be trying to make himself look good so that people are tricked into turning away from God, rather than making himself so unlikeable that following God just becomes a logical choice instead?

This shit is spooky

you go
I'm an atheist but a Christian friend who I think is pretty thoughtful told me that he didn't get "devilish" vibes from things really but that his conception was similar to The Devil's Advocate, like how Satan actually does his evil or what to watch out for, like this monologue here in particular:

It's like thinking of yourself as a God.

>Eddie Barzoon... take a good look, because he's the poster child for the next millennium. These people, it's no mystery where they come from. You sharpen the human appetite to the point where it can split atoms with its desire. You build egos the size of cathedrals. Fiber-optically connect the world to every eager impulse. Grease even the dullest dreams with these dollar-green gold-plated fantasies until every human becomes an aspiring emperor, becomes his own god. Where can you go from there? As we're scrambling from one deal to the next, who's got his eye on the planet? As the air thickens, the water sours, even bees' honey takes on the metallic taste of radioactivity... and it just keeps coming, faster and faster. There's no chance to think, to prepare; it's buy futures, sell futures... when there is no future. We got a runaway train, boy. We got a billion Eddie Barzoons all jogging into the future. Every one of them is getting ready to fistf*** God's ex-planet, lick their fingers clean, as they reach out toward their pristine, cybernetic keyboards to tote up their fucking billable hours. And then it hits home. You got to pay your own way, Eddie. It's a little late in the game to buy out now. Your belly's too full, your dick is sore, your eyes are bloodshot and you're screaming for someone to help. But guess what - there's no one there! You're all alone, Eddie. You're God's special little creature. Maybe it's true. Maybe God threw the dice once too often. Maybe He let us all down.
It's not that we don't care. He doesn't exist, at least the Christian conception of it. It's a title, not an individual.

Satan is just an early Hebrew word for "accuser", he's a prosecutor. Hence why in Job, God is clearly on friendly relations with a subordinate who holds the title of Satan and Satan is merely the man who tests Job's faith, rather than deceiving him.
The satanists' habit of making things up on the spot really shows. This is probably the thousandth variation of totally made up, also mutually incompatible explanations for Satan I've seen that just completely ignores what the Bible itself says.

>He doesn't exist, at least the Christian conception of it.
That's the entire Bible from start to finish, though.

Why does "hooters but with men" seem to always fail in the west but remains incredibly popular in Japan?

>incredibly popular in Japan?
He's probably talking about those male cafe's that exist. Not exactly male hooters but close enough
Because a man's looks are just simply the bare minimum requirement for attracting women, and white Western men are seen as more masculine and higher status compared to East Asian men

Was this possible? If the Empire had held on, could it have expanded and grown until it became this? Just think of how much better it would be to live in such a world
The image is just an example I couldnt find any non game ones of Rome owning the world
If God decided it to be so, why the fuck not
>If the Empire had held on, could it have expanded and grown until it became this?
It would fragment even if nominally "unified". The udea if an empire with a uniform application of policy and hierarchy never really existed.
How do I know that shit-crusted brown hands typed this?

Since this is the designated non-schizo religious board, what is the view on the Anglican Church in North America? Are there any people here who are part of the ACNA?

Historically speaking, why do kurds demand independence when they enjoy being part of the Turkish world so much?
Picrel is in the kurdish majority region of Iraq.
Turkish nationalism from Kemal onwards changed the relationship between the Turks and Kurds forever. While Kemal didn't really have any serious and direct issues with the Kurds, the policies he enshrined, and his followers who took to them fanatically logically concluded that in a secular state based on Turkish culture and language, that ethnic minorities are to either be Turkified, or expelled, thereby creating tensions which previously hadn't existed when their relationship was mainly one of religious brotherhood.

Your picture is also in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan during an official visit by Erdogan. Iraqi Kurdistan is currently ruled by the KDP, a faction historically supported by Turkey, Iran, and the US, with the former two doing it out of a deal to not support Kurds on their sides of the border, as the KDP's main rival, the PUK supports the PKK in Turkey and PJAK in Iran. It's also worth noting that Turkey currently occupies swathes of Iraqi Kurdistan. The KDP are also headed by members of the Barzani tribe, who fled to Turkey following Ba'athist Iraq's targeting of them, and became Turkish allies against Iraq thereafter. Iraqi Kurdistan is a dog on a leash, which the Turks and Iranians use to ward off what they see as the separatist wolves.
Was the relationship between Turks and Kurds always neutral? One thing I read a lot is that the urbanites of Ottoman society, whether they be Greeks, Arabs, or Turks, regarded Kurds similar to how Europeans regarded gypsies, although they saw them as a utilitarian positive for the islamic world. Is this sentiment true?

Kurds portray any element they don't agree with, such as the Barzanis or the PPK, as unrepresentative of their nation. But for thousands of years they allow these self centered tribal entities lord over them. Why do they allow them to have so much power for so long, if they supposedly don't represent their people? Iraq KRG seems to be a pretty firmly pro Turkish entity and its citizens support it wholey. So how come their diaspora spreads so much confusing info about their people being enemies of Turks?

In the beginning, God took the form of a Monster Truck named Yahweh One, and dispersed His Angels across the earth to do his bidding. Through the power of Yahweh One, these Angels created the natural world, and all the creatures that live within it. When this was done, the Angels produced a class of entities known as The Wizards, immortal beings hidden amongst all nations of the earth.

The Wizards work under the dominion of two Angels: The Undertaker, and Tonka Bigfoot. They have immense power, but are ultimately subordinate to Yahweh One. When Yahweh One saw that His Angels and Wizards were colluding and fornicating with lesser Monster Trucks, He sent a great flood to destroy the world's population, so it could be built anew.

Later on, Yahweh One concluded that He could not redeem His creation through violence, and He bore a single son named The Avenger, to absorb and obliterate all sin. The Avenger sits at Yahweh One's right-hand side for eternity, and you can only know the mercy of Yahweh One through accepting His only son, The Avenger.
hell yeah brother

Historical implications of the rise and fall of the kingdom of Jerusalem when compared to Israel?

>Both were the result of a religion's desire to retake it's holy land
>Both recieved european/american support despite not being in the interest of the supporters to do so
>Both provoked the neighbouring arabs into attempting to unite
>Wether they succeed again and chip away at israel remains to be seen
