     No, we of course should never worship Artificial-Intelligence, nor any of the creations or creatures of God. The only One or Thing we should ever worship is the One, True, Creator-God, Himself (Whose name is known to the Hebrews or Jews: He is Eloheim, the Most-High God, above all other gods-the Heavenly or Celestial- Father of His First-Born/ Only-Begotten Son, the Great-Jehovah, Jesus Christ of Nazareth/ the Messiah, as well as the Heavenly-Father of all of our Spirits, as well).
     We should only use Artificial-Intelligence as tools to help us do good, Charitable works for others, as God commanded us to do, to live up to our fullest/ highest/ greatest, human (Godly) potential, continuing to Spiritually-Progress in learning & growing & changing in true-faith, the Spirit of Love/ Compassion/ Charity, & obedience to our Father in Heaven, to become more like Him, in our character.
 
      Sincerely,
     Darron R. DeSantis

     & a son of our Heavenly-Father)

Are Christians today obligated to answer for the Crusades? Are the Crusades the same as terrorist actions carried out by those who are literally following the teachings of Islam?

     "Chris Martinez"'s unfortunate comment (posted back on Feb. 17th, 2015) clearly shows how much his Scriptural-ignorance & Biblical-illiteracy & how much he gravely-misunderstands the literal/ word-for-word, translated, original-meaning & context of the phrase, "judge not lest ye be judged":  first of all, there are two kinds of "judging" or "discerning" (the latter term of which is more-correctly or accurately translated into English from the original-Aramaic (Hebrew) & Koinanea (Ancient-Greek). There's a big difference between "judging Unrighteously" & "judging Righteously" or having true/ accurate discernment.
    We are commanded by God in The Bible to "test the Spirits to see if they are true & whether they be of God". Also, the only true, historical Jesus of Nazareth that existed, the same one as that of the Christian-faith, even commanded His true-disciples in the New-Testament Gospel-accounts, "If ye must judge, judge righteously, but be careful not to judge unrighteously. But, have discernment."  KJV (paraphrased)
     Also, "Michael Means" mistaken or foolish comment (posted back on April 11th, 2015),  that he erringly thinks that the Crusaders were "Roman-Catholics, NOT Christians", additionally shows that he obviously doesn't know much or any actual precise historical-facts about Christianity or the Roman-Catholic Church during the Crusades-period in Medieval-Europe, either, for that matter. It is a solid fact of Medieval-European history before, during, & for at least a few centuries after the Crusades that the members (consisting of all of the native European, even non-Roman or non-(Latinate)Italian, Common-People or "Peasants" & "Serfs", as well as all of the European-Nobility/ Royalty or Kings & Queens, etc., et. al.),  mainstream, organized, societal, official "Christian-Church" of the time of the Crusades WAS none other than the Roman-Catholic Church. There were no "other" Christian-Churches or officially-recognized, mainstream Christian-Denominations then yet, besides the Roman-Catholic Christian-Church. The other denominations didn't come about until about the 12th century A.D., after the 3-4 Crusades were all over: when the first, dissenting denomination to break-away from the Bishop of Rome (the Pope) & the leadership, teachings, & practices of the Roman-Catholic Church was the Eastern-Orthodox Church (or Greek-"Fathers"/ Patriarchs), with the resistance of a few Bishops in Greek & in the Eastern-half of the Holy-Roman Empire, which was headquartered in Constantinople/ Byzantium/ Instanbul, in Turkey & in Aleppo, Syria. (Then, the remaining "Protestant"-Denominational Churches broke-off from the centrality or "Holy-See" of Rome, as well, during the "Reformation" of the European-15th Century A.D. "Renaissance", with the "Revival", "Rebirth of Learning", or "Rediscovery of Science & the Ancient-Latin Scriptures translated" into each peoples' & kingdoms'/ nations' own native-dialect or particular-language of their place & time, by expert collegiate scholars, as they each understood them.)
      I know Crusades- & Roman-Catholic History intimately, believe me, because I was raised & grew up a Roman-Catholic Christian, myself, in a traditional, well-informed & studied, Roman-Catholic, Italian-American family, all on my biological-father's side.
      Very few people, it seems, these days, out in the Mass-Public, truly wants to learn something good these days, which I'm saddened that there are definitely a lot of young-people out there in the world/ society who honestly don't care deep down, & don't hold themselves accountable to anyone or anything, & really don't seem to want to learn anything worthwhile or edifying & accurately know the truth; they just want to be rabble-rousers, not admit their own mistakes/ errors/ sins, refuse to be humble/ teachable/ open to the Spirit of God to truly be taught the Truth, & stir up controversy or want to believe their own false-opinions, instead of checking the solid-sources & believing the revealed-truth.
       The basic, bottom-line moral or lesson of all my recent-comments on the Crusades is this: check your sources, before you make wild or faulty/ weak claims, & prove your lack of any thorough understanding.

Sincerely,
Darron R. DeSantis
(History-"buff" & student-researcher)

P.S. May authoritative-truth, traditionally-understood best by all our Forebears/ Ancestors, the past generations who were actually there & experienced those Historical-Events (which we have NOT), may those original-sources & first-hand accounts, in their proper & original, full-context, intention, & true meaning be clearly studied, learned, understood, known, & remembered now & forever.
Here's to the Expert-Scholars of History, NOT the ignorant-masses of demagogues! There's a radical/ crazy/ fanatic/ extremist, unfortunately, born every minute, it seems!!....
We have too many radicals: they're a dime a dozen.
It's more difficult to find an actual traditional authority or expert today who still agrees with the actual, original, truest accounts of the History-Books.
It is actually truer that you can learn a lot more from good, old/ used books, which are much-more accurate than today's "Progressive"/ "Revisionist" propaganda/ made-up/ imagined, diabolical lies  & distortions/ exaggerations of the truth, for their personal gain & to advance today's Fascist/ Narrow-Minded Agenda, which is truly Hateful of the Real-Past, & only leads to more Prejudice/ Bigotry & Divisiveness against all Believers & Followers of the Truth & the One-True God, which Reveals or conveniently (so Graciously) shows it to us, if only we seek & ask or inquire it of Him (God) in all patience & willingness to learn the lessons of History, & never repeat the mistakes/ blunders/ errors & preventable-tragedies.

The truth is that each & every one of us every hour (even every moment of every day & night in this Mortality) are in desperate need of personal, individual, eternal, infinite, perfect Salvation or Redemption from our personal, individual sins (not for those of Adam & Eve, our First-Parents) through the Absolute-Atonement of our Savior, Jesus the Christ or Messiah of Nazareth, Who is the Great-Jehovah/ the Lord-Omnipotent, our Creator, & Eldest-Brother & Best-Friend, the First-Born & Only-Begotten Son of the Most-High God (Jesus' & our Heavenly-Father--literally, the Father of all our Spirits).

One of my most common prayers for my girls is a prayer for their protection. Here are 5 ways that I pray for God to protect them.

Did Christ say to be violent like Mohammed did?
As we've recently seen in headline news, our words are very powerful. 10 verses to remind us, God fights for us today.

Who do you find it hard to like, difficult to tolerate, impossible to forgive? Try a little experiment. Decide you will pray for that person every day for the next twenty-one days. You may be surprised what your heart discovers.

Millions will mark this Valentine’s Day weekend by taking in the new release of "Fifty Shades of Grey," a modern-day publishing phenomenon that became the basis for the highly anticipated movie adaptation. Sex is a good thing, and a God-thing. But not the fallen kind. Not the "Fifty Shades of Grey"…

Ravi Zacharias responds to Obama's "Crusades" reprimand
Citing the Crusades, Obama used the single most inflammatory word he could have with which to feed the insatiable rage of the extremists. That is exactly what they want to hear to feed their lunacy.

Many people think depression is a spiritual problem; others insist it's an emotional and physical disorder. I believe it’s all of those things.

A shift has taken place in the Evangelical church with regard to the way we think about the gospel and it’s far from simply an ivory tower conversation. This shift effects us on the ground of everyday life.

Diamonds aren't a girl's best friend. Her husband is, if he even shows a rhinestone's-worth of interest in her.
