Romans 1 18¬†For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19¬†because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them. 20¬†For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse. 21¬†Because, knowing God, they didn‚Äôt glorify him as God, neither gave thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened.
So apparently Mayor Kasim Reed "will not tolerate any discrimination of any kind" within his administration, except for discrimination against Christianity! Also, what the fire chief said was absolutely true and for that he needs to undergo brainwashing...I mean sensativity training?!
No Penny you misunderstood me. Nothing wrong with being involved. But at the same time we cant expect a bible believing christian to win votes, not without a miracle.

Well Mike, you can add me to the list. I am saying that if nominated I will not run and if elected, I will not serve. According to your trivia question, that now makes 2 of us.
Oh by the way, I have google also, so I already knew the answer.
You picked up my earlier comment too soon. I modified it to basically say "this ignorant southern boy". I didn't want anyone saying I was being unkind to southern boys, but self-deprecation is usually okay and since I live in the south ....

Of course they wanted Christ to set up His earthly kingdom prior to going to the cross and He refused, so it could have been Him. You have to give me more of a hint or information than that. You know how us ignorant southern boys think.

Mike wrote: So God institutes political power, i.e. government for man's benefit, and men who claim God as their God say it's not Christian to be involved in it. I guess they believe God wants only athiests and secularists in government. For man's benefit, of course.
Several years ago we had an awful awful pastor, so bad that one of the children in the congregation wanted to leave because our Pastor was so insincere. His father came to the elders asking for some relief, my response was that sometimes those in charge are there as your curse
Upon hearing this, his eyes became the size of the moon
Proverbs 29:2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
