Sorry Arbormann, which little stunt was that? Helping the American Revolutionaries? (I loved the Revaluation typo Chris - made me laugh, in a good way) Or losing in Vietnam before the Americans ever got there? Or was it perhaps the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Oh no wait let me think, it was being so ungrateful for the Americans helping out in WWII that they didn't help out in Iraq.
First of all you need to know a few bits of history. Thousands upon thousands of French fought all through WWII - they were called the Free French - they fought in Africa, Italy, and then from D-Day onwards in Western Europe. Thousands upon thousands more French were deported by the Germans and put in forced labour camps in Eastern Germany, Poland and occupied Russia. Thousands more French fought all through WWII as members of the Resistance; the village church here in Bourbriac still has the bullet scars to from when 26 of the villagers were lined up and executed by the Germans, and one of the local chateaux was the secene of the brutal torturing of many more French by the Gestapo. This was the story throughout large parts of Occupied France. They didn't just roll over and run when faced with overwhelming German military superiority.
Secondly, the froggies not helping you out in Iraq. Well one might site the Suez Crisis. Egypt nationalised the Suez Canal, vital for worldwide trading. Britain and France stood against Naser and launched a military campaign to retake it. The Americans suggested appeasement, and when the French and British wouldn't accept this, the US withdrew all support.
Fast forward to Iraq. The Frensch, along with almost all of the rest of the world didn't accept largely American military intelligence concerning the existance of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq - the reasons sited by the Americans and British for invasion, without these WMDs the French and most of the rest of the world felt that a war with Iraq would be an act of aggression, would destabilise a very sensitive region, and lead to military and massive civilian casualties.
Guess what? The Froggies were right.
And yes, I'm afraid I do tell you I believe you're wrong in your interpretation of $cripture. Why? because it differs from not only my own, but from many many theologians and many many ordinary Christians down through two millenia. Also it differs from my personal experience of God. I'm not however telling you, you're not a Christian, because the one thing you haven't done is talked of your personal experience of God, all you've done is told me what second-hand knowledge you've accepted. I firmly believe that what makes a person a Christian is the personal relationship with God, the acceptance of Christ's teachings on love of God and fellow man; not the book knowledge, which anyone can have. I'm sure your experience of God is valid, what I'm questioning, is your knowledge of the development of theology, church history, and church tradition; and the way that has brought about the Christianity we know today.
