Wow, I think you're just being overly sensitive, Americans seem to have trouble with people pointing out they have not been the nicest people around.
It's not about you as Americans.

It's the attempt to justify rebellion against the King using the bible as a crutch.

Let's review...

The officers in the British army are the Kings personal representatives. Advocating their killing directly violates 1 Peter 2:13.
Then America proceeds to invade my country (1812) killing our citizens in an attempt to take by force our lands, to subjugate us to American rule.

Was this God ordained?

Obviously not, as America lost this war, and we burned Washington. (No real loss, you should really thank us, unfortunately we were 190 years too early :grin: ....Joking, don't get excited) After all Americans did burn Toronto. (Now, there you could do us a favor by repeating the act..we really wouldn't mind :grin: )


and...

Canada 1812.
The newly minted United States (claiming manifest destiny and all that) proceeds to attack my country, the goal of taking our lands, and forcing American rule upon us.
Just curious as those on this thread who claim God's hand directed America's forming how this violent expansionist policy of subjugation is reconciled. Considering you broke away from England due to perceived wrongs, turn around and immediately begin to force your will upon us.


I didn't do any of that. Nor did any American citizen alive today. That was over 200 years ago.

If you don't sense the aggression in the words perhaps you should re-read what you've said. It could be percieved as such.

God bless,

You are free in Christ (Gal. 5:1 and Rom. 8:2) Barabbas to your opinion. There has been other evidence given and discussed on the thread.

Perhaps. In any case as the the innitiator or OP of this thread I'm closing it down. Was an interesting discussion.
