'Religious left' launched

Patrick Mrotek

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- They call themselves religious Americans who want to close what they refer to as the "God gap" in politics. The Christian Alliance for Progress announced in a news conference Thursday its movement to counter the power of the religious right in the shadow of Jacksonville's politically powerful First Baptist Church.

The grassroots progressive organization's mission statement was prominently displayed on every placard promoting the new group: "Take Back Our Faith."

"We're here because we can no longer stand by and watch people speak hatred, division, war and greed in the name of our faith," Mrotek said. "We're here because Christianity is being used by radical leaders of the religious right as they seek to marginalize gay and lesbian people; to criminalize desperate, pregnant women; to suppress scientific information and honest information about human reproduction and replace ...

Never need to worry, Lance, only at the beginning of the Millennium what everyone believe in Christ, in the thousand years it follows, it will be shown that man can reject Christ on his own without the help of Satan, and then that the end of the Millennium, they will be believers in Christ again.

Plants you should listen to the sermons of Gil Rugh on the Book of Revelation hear on SermonAudio.

As mentioned in an earlier message this booklet can be in some help also.

GM: "RCC" = Roman Catholic Church

Hi Lance,

I see whats around us all, and what I view is: a Christian can tell when they see another Christian,When was the Last time you seen a Christian talk to people about thier souls? on the net or off?

Dear Lance, this world is filled with people that profess to be Christian,but when it comes to living it, the world has them. I know from personal expearience, that if even Christian people are told the truth on how they were presenting them selves to the people or to other Christians, ( badly) thats how they are showing Christ to the people.(badly). them hearing the errors of their ways only makes it.more difficult , (in some cases). for the Christian that told them the truth.

I know, cause I've tried to show other Chrstians how to walk in Jesus Ways and no longer their own, and they dismiss the facts of their errors and cotinue if not hurting the truth teller,then walking away and bedding down with the world.

According to recent Gallup and Harris polls, there are over 70 million "born
again" Christians in North America

Now, if there are those many Christians in North America,and I mean True Born Again Believers in Christ, then Why arn't they getting out there Witnessing for Christ?

I don't think I've heard of RCC, Whats that?

First off: do you think these people are on the up and up?

Second off:By reading Prophecy in Gods Word and researching on what has been happening in todays world, It shows that that The end times are do you know for sure that this isn't a part of the New World Order?

Christ would run the country.
But only if the 'Christians' were true Christians.

Thus not heretics, liberals, RCC et al...!

But what if everyone in the country were Christian? Who runs the country then?

Correct Russell. 'Protestant from UK' needs to decide if he/she wants Christ or the world (with it's politics) for one cannot have both. The bible doesn't "tell us how we ought to run government" at all; it tells us quite the opposite in fact.

Though the Christian is in the kosmos, he is not of the kosmos, John 15:19, John ch. 17. The Christian is to separate himself from the kosmos; consider I Corinthians 5:9-13 and II Corinthians 6:14-18.

The present life is characterized by the wrath of Caesar against the body of Christ Jesus, for at his conversion the Christian is taken from the domain of Caesar and placed into the domain of Christ, Colossians 1:13.

The great issue of this age is government -- the kingdom of Christ versus the kingdom of Caesar. In the light of this, no Christian ought hold office at any level in the government of Caesar; no Christian ought be an agent of Caesar. This holds also for the military and law enforcement.

The concept of a Christian nation is contrary to the teaching of the Scripture.

Chris M wrote: "Christians have no place in politics beyond telling the leaders what is right and wrong on moral issues."

Really? Does that mean that Christ's Lordship doesn't extend to Parliament or to Congress? Does that mean that the Bible is insufficint in telling us how we ought to run government?

This is the same old diversionary tactic for which Americans have fallen time and time again. The Establishment fosters two camps which appear to be polar opposites: liberal & conservative, left & right, union & confederacy, republican & democrat, capitalist & communist, pro-choice & pro-life.

But in actuality, both camps of each pair have essentially the same agenda, and differ only in superficial detail. The unwashed masses (a pun, if you are perceptive), fighting among themselves over Establishment-defined issues, never pause and step back and discover that they have a common enemy who is diverting their attention from issues of infinitely greater magnitude.

Funny story, when you consider who runs the vast majority of seminaries in this country.

I don't have much hope for the "Christian" right either. I've had my fill of that lot - they aren't as different from the "left" as they think.

Correct 33k, left is just as wrong as right - neither is right if you get the pun. Chriatians have no place in politics beyond telling the leaders what is right and wrong on moral issues.

Yawn. Another liberal organization. Their director of religious affairs is a Presby minister. Must be a United Methodist wannabe.

News Item6/24/05 3:20 PM
Indeed, no more a commendation for them than for the 'religious right' / 'moral majority'.

Even non-Christians are drawn to their agenda? well, no kidding... like that's a commendation.

Sound like the religious left and right should have plaque cards saying that they're going to take back their politics and give up their religion. :-(

News Item6/24/05 1:41 PM
The problem here is that these folks want to "Take back Our Faith." This is their faith conjured up by man and not God given faith. Man's faith exalts man, God give faith exalts God. Let them have "their" faith, I'll keep the faith God has given me.
