    Well... it doesn't seem like there is any rules being violated. Im really interested. Do you feel that your beliefs are not important enough to be heard?

    On a more positive note, welcome to the site!

    Kind of scary ain't it? Makes one want to follow instruction, and open the pocket book, when another tactic, "guilt" is applied.

    Even the few non-biased subject matter experts say that the Koresh and the Davidians were cloaked in such secrecy that they only know what they have found out since the Waco raid(s)...

    Which is obviously far from conclusive for anybody to pass judgment on Koresh and the Davidians...
    I've done some extensive reading on Waco and the Branch Davidians with the conclusion that Koresh was a fanatic that changed even farther a cult cut off of the Seventh Day Adventists. He was a bottle short of a six pack and thought himself a prophet of God. The jury may never come back on this but that's just my opinion on him.

Where I am coming from is that with all that may have been wrong with him I do not think the real reason the BATF went after him was in anyway to protect the kids. In fact BATF had no jurisdiction in that area and that is why they had to come up with trumped up charges of weapons violations. They had an agenda and it had noting to do with the children.

    I'm with you on the fact that the feds screwed things up big time. Remember that, sometimes, when LE can't get someone for one thing they'll go after them for another. Think of Al Capone. They couldn't pin murder on him so they went after him for tax evasion. Again Waco was a terrible tragedy that could have been prevented. But we mustn't overlook why they went after Koresh.

    You really need to read the entire passage rather than just a partial quote to get the actual meaning of the text......
    "The sword dose not cause the murder, and the maker of the sword dose not bear sin" Rabbi Solomon ben Isaac 11th century
    "Don't be so open minded that your brains fall out!" Father John Corapi.

    Many don't understand that behind the verse is a message. Some of them were never meant to be taken literally but as a learning tool.

    How do you know Mr Koresh was not a prophet of God? There are several televangelists, and many others who claim to be prophets, and other biblical titles. How does anyone know for sure? The jews don't think much of Jesus.
    Yes, its true about LE getting you for what ever they can. O.J. Simpson comes to mind.

    kind of typical of trolls to advocate the banning of something yet still troll the area instead of moving to a more comfortable sub forum for their conversations and siting the rules they think apply.
    oh wait I forgot, trolls only troll they don't add anything but trollery.
    I love the new rating system. So much better than ignore!

    Come on Icy you already know the answer to this one.... Prophets are bore out with their predictions becoming true, and although I must admit I have absolutely no knowledge of what Koresh wrote, if any of it have been true then there would be an following yet today....

    but I bet his last prediction came true.... when he saw the tanks comming..... it went something like this... "OH S*** WE'RE SCREWED NOW!"

    +1 the Bible is a huge collection of Parables, just a a few short versions, the mustard seed, house on sand, log in own eye, many of the stores are meant to be lessons. But the Qua ran on the other hand is meant to be rule of law.
