Well, it dawned on me one day that if I think something has the potential of being a sin, but I'm not quite sure, then I need to stop and err on the side of caution. I'm mentioning this because it is a rule that I will apply here. I'm not convinced I'm wrong, but if it offends others... Dan, just curious: what do you think about using the word "homo" in the same paragraph in which you are rebuking someone?
Oh so sorry Chris - didn't get back to your profound question. Sorry for the offensive abbreviation. I meant 'homosexual' but was too much in a hurry to type it out in full. May God forgive me. I truly believe that my personal holiness is the focus of Gods attention. So much so that I worry over myself continually. I am the most important person here Chris. I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I, ad infinitum ...
Is this to be unexpected? Bottom line is that none of the PUBS will beat Obama in the General Election. If in the providence of God one of them does then-with a Catholic or Mormon as President-America can once and for all shed its notion of being a "Christian Nation". Never was, never will be. God's kingdom is what utimately counts.
Sure they can. America is a secular nation, not a Godly one such as the one typified by ancient Israel. Current choice is between a Mormon or a Catholic. Vote for either one of them based on their platform not their idolatry or status as a member of a cult and you'll be alright.
It certainly will be interesting to see how this all plays out. "Evangelicals" have the choice between Obama and Either a Mormon (Romney) or Gingrich (Catholic). Can't wait to see how they will rationale their decision in voting for the Republican candidate as they typically do. I'm with Jim Lincoln on this one.
What will we evangelicals do when the election is held next year and the 2 candidates are Obama and Romney? One professes to know the God of the bible; the other is a member of a cult that is not the gospel of the Lord Jesus.
Interesting to see how this will play out. Then, again, I don't see how a Christian can actually serve God as president. He/She will ultimately have to comprise the true teaching of the scriptures to pass a man-made agenda. Good that God will actually be the one to decide (better to say that has already decided the matter).
