Happy Birthday Christianity !!!

On May 10,2012 the flames were ignited in Olympia Greece for the 2012 London Summer Olympics. Keeping up with the tradition, the flames are always ignited in Olympia where the Olympic games began by using the rays of the sun. The flames arrived in Athens on May 18,2012 where the first modern games began and will travel through a torch relay to London. To arrive just in time for the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 London Summer Olympics on July 27,2012. The flames will remain lit until they are extinguished at the Closing Ceremony of the 2012 London Summer Olympics on August 12,2012 .

But today, May 27,2012 is Pentecost Sunday. Christians all over the world will be celebrating the birthday of the Church, Christianity and the anniversary of the Christian Olympics/race. Which began over 2000 years ago in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. Which took place 50 days after the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Here is what happened,when the disciples and followers of Christ were gathered together,the sound of a rushing mighty wind filled the house where they were sitting together.Then there appeared tongues that looked like fire that rested on them. And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak other languages the wonderful works of God(Acts 1-2). This was the beginning of Christianity, the Church and the divine Opening Ceremony of the Christian Olympics. Just as the Olympic Games open with flames of fire, The fire at Pentecost that symbolizes the Holy Spirit opened the Christian Olympics and Christianity and the Church was born. What is so significant is that the fire that symbolizes the Holy Spirit that was lit over 2000 years ago still burns today. What year did you join the 2000 year old Christian Olympics? When is your spiritual birthday? Happy Birthday !!!

The torch in the Olypics means nothing of the sort. Do your homework. The torch has nothing to do with Christianty what so ever.

cHRISTIANS SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE lOYMPIC.S WHICH ARE AND A PAGAN Gods. The flames in the day of Penticostal day. The Counselor (Helper) The Holy Spirit. The Apostal Paul stated we weere like in a race. The race is not like theOlympic, but a racee to keep our Golden Crown waiting for us. The Crown is in Heaven...Judging what little you stated' I understand why our Churches are in such a big mess, and the World is going to Hell... Your mixing Apples, and Oranges. What little I read "Your out of context. God Bless, and may the Lord open your eyes to his Word, and Truth.. The Rev.

Dear Rev. Manuel Penticostal:
Thank you for your comment.
I am the founder of that I write is scripturally sound and is taken from the Bible.I am a Bible school graduate and have studied the Bible for over 30 years.It is the Bible that compares the Christian race to the Olympic Games not me.I am only a messenger from God.
Please read my book:The Christian Olympics-Going for the Gold Crowns for further explanation.
