Once again, what does the evidence show?
Questions Phat.

Is there even a single example of Jesus or God preventing any disaster or social breakdown?

Are there not numerous examples of religious fervor causing disasters and social breakdowns?

What does the evidence show?

Of course not. These things *must* happen. The solution is to love God and love your neighbor. I might add that knowing God is a priority, but you will be unable to understand this basic bit...unless perhaps you might believe that in knowing our neighbor, we thus know God.

First I'd need to know what even knowing your neighbor could possibly have to do with knowing God? But still no one has suggested anyway for anyone including themselves to know God or tell if they are communing with God.

You say Christianity is about what you do. (not what you believe)

No Phat, I point out that in the Bible Jesus says following him is about what you do not what you believe. Stop misrepresenting what I say.

My question would be how to tell apart a crowd based on obsessive fearful groupthink(authoritarianism) versus a crowd of individuals with no groupthink, varied beliefs, and a shared desire to simply bond with each other. The question is this: If a Holy Spirit exists and desires to commune with humans, which crowd would He,She, or It likely reside in?

More silly word salad.

Sorry but that is all just nonsense.

A wrong answer is better than no answer at all.

I'm sorry but you just laid a new really dumb brick there Bubba. That's truly silly. It is the classic mantra of the Snake Oil Salesmen.
