    Maybe the lawyer really was mentally ill and "thought that was why he killed himself?". Why demonise the left. There are christians who are conservative and others who are more liberal ... less liberal ... you know ... all differrent stripes?
    Anyway, Global warming is real ... no one made it up ... and unless the "rapture" comes soon, our children/children's children will be paying the price for us doing nothing about it.

    Do you have to be straight and conservative to be a Christian? i know many gay Christians, and no, it is not an oxymoron.

    Depends. I think there are Christians who struggle with homosexuality. But those who self-identify as "gay" are usually poster children for Romans 1.

    You are right, Skipp. It is not in the Bible and has nothing to do with left or right. Either you believe the reports about it, or you do not.

    The Leftist positions in America today are non-Christian in the extreme and have been at least non-Christian on the periphery since the early 20th century. So much so, I would say the burden of proof is on the "Christian" Leftist to describe how the following are compatible with the Christian worldview: incentivized unwed motherhood, Wilsonian adventurism, state-funded abortion, legalized abortion, state-funded birth control, profligate public spending, denial of differences between the sexes, state-funded LGBT Propaganda (via public schools), encroachment on the freedom of religion, encroachment on parental sovereignty in the home, advocation of discriminatory policy (affirmative action), and an economic policy inconsistent with what the Bible in sum describes as human nature.

    And that's just fun, mainstream Leftism. Not the critical theory all the cool kids are into these days.

    Certainly being a conservative or a liberal does not equate to good or bad Christian. These are simply labels that are divisive when the hope is to unite all Christians.

    That use to be the truth.But in the last few years the libs have moved so far left I don't understand how one could claim to be a Christian and support their agenda. When it comes to abortion,gender bending,and Israel,I honestly dont see how one could be Christian and vote Dem.

    Wow! This red really kills my eyes.lol I looked up this story on another site and I'd say this was demonically inspired.When you have no hope,this is the end result.He was distraught,he didn't know what the future held,this is the natural next step,its where satan leads us when we have no hope.

    Global warming has not been proven. But people are afraid to question the mainstream. True science ended years ago.No dissent is allowed from the party line,that is not true science.

    No such thing as a gay Christian. It is an oxymoron. The Bible says dark and light cannot abide together. Doesn't mean they cant be saved.But no,you cannot be a gay Christian according to the Bible.

    Truth is available only to those who have the courage to question whatever they think they know.

    It's hard to learn anything when you always feel the need to be the expert.

    But at the same time, the right has moved so far right one can't be a conservative and honestly call themselves Christian either!

    DUMP BOTH PARTIES!

    Oh, my brethren! bold-hearted men are always called mean-spirited by cowards. - Charles Spurgeon

    Open Theism and Molinism, two inept theological camps, do err in this sense; God doesn't have an R&D department, He does all things perfectly.

    A god who can be fashioned by our own thoughts is no more a god than an image produced by our own hands. - Charles Spurgeon

    I'd agree with that where the City of Man is concerned. Though most of his political statements (the ones that got him the cross) all had to do with his own sovereignty as Lord.

    Most Christians are liberals in the sense it was used up until the late 1910's.

    Silliness.

    The Right's only moved Left in the last few decades outside maybe a few sexy issues (ie guns and taxation). If we want to talk about the preponderance of policy, the GOP has only really moved Left at a slower pace.

    Rather than dump both parties, I say it's more realistic to mob them and fix them at the precinct level.

    I think support for Israel is one of those issues Christians can agree to disagree on without either party violating Biblical commands. There's a lot of complex wiggle room.

    Washington's Farewell address is, as always, a good guide for foreign policy. One we should go back to now that the Soviet Union's been dead for almost 30 years.
