There is no difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. Christians make the mistake in thinking that God is the head of the Republican party or that there is something noble about being a Republican. I recently asked some of my Republican friends in the church if they had ever called congress to state that Obama should be impeached. Not one had every called or even considered calling. Lazy! Republican Christians endorse evil by their silence.
The Southern Baptist Conventions' 1993 report on the compatibility of Masons and Christianity states: "We therefore recommend that consistent with our denomination's deep convictions regarding the priesthood of the believer and the autonomy of the local church, membership in a Masonic Order be a matter of personal conscience." Wow, and you wonder why the SBC is declining in numbers? Maybe there be yeast in the dough..... Deep convictions?
Founders subscribes to the London Confession of Faith, pre-1700s. It is seriously time that Baptist study what their forefathers believed and taught from scripture. A lot of Christians have difficulty with the theology of Jesus and Paul. If you love your Lord, you will follow his teachings and be obedient from the heart empowered by the Holy Spirit. Mixing Zionism with Christianity amounts to Jewish Supremacy. All who come to Christ, are chosen by the Father for Salvation.
Brothers, Just remember that there are evangelical churches and Christians within the PCUSA who do not hold to the national PCUSA agenda: some have left, and some are leaving, some are trying to reform from within. It is similar to the SBC were you have the cultish Zionist Dispensationalist and Masonic elements that appear to control the SBC, but you have the Founders and others who are trying to get the SBC back on track to return to orthodox theology. You can't demonize every Southern Baptist just because the head representative has deviated from orthodox Christianity.
Let's not forget the GENOCIDE that is going on worldwide on a daily basis and in just America alone approx 4000 unborn precious babies are murdered and butchered and tortured to death non-stop, 365 days per year for endless years. How does that stack up with 20 babies killed only once in a lifetime of the school in Newtown Conn.? Let us never take our focus off the GENOCIDE OF 4000 BABIES PER DAY IN JUST THE U.S. ALONE. Genocide in what we call a Free Country. And now millions of creeps are going nuts about gun control!!! Let's have GENOCIDE CONTROL OK? Genocide of millions of babies in the US. 50 million per year worldwide.
Sorry Cityx2, I too believe that the death penalty should be treated as a punishment for crime and also a deterrent to crime as the study has proven. Even God says so in the Bible. Check Romans 13:2-4 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. 3 For rulers are not a TERROR to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be AFRAID of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, BE AFRAID; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
