Christian leaders corrupted

  • Follow Letters

Recently in Florida, a group of atheists unveiled a monument to their unbelief in God to sit alongside a slab that lists the Ten Commandments in front of the Bradford County Courthouse. This is the result when Christian-elected officials are not sincere about their faith. They talk Christianity, but legislate like atheists. They are all things to all people, and stand only for contributions and re-election.

Because of their duplicity, Christian political leaders have capitulated to the ungodly demands of non-Christian constituents. President Obama recently issued a proclamation to honor homosexuality for a month. Augusta Mayor Deke Copenhaver recently issued a proclamation to honor homosexuality for a day. Marriage and the Boy Scouts have been perverted.

Now, every ungodly and lawless segment of society will demand to be officially recognized and honored. This is what happens when good Christian men become weak and spiritually compromised. Say goodbye to the United States of America. Say hello to the United States of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Is this what we really want?

"They talk Christianity, but legislate like atheists. Christian political leaders have capitulated to the ungodly demands of non-Christian constituents" - sounds like theocracy to me - not democracy.

This country was founded by people who wanted to get away from places that had state sponsored religions. If you want that, go to Iran. They feel the same way about their religion there too.

Shhh JustAJoe, like many in

Shhh JustAJoe, like many in the Middle East supporting their radical Islamic states, many people around here (is THIS a SUBTLE enough HINT as TO whom I am REFERRING to?) seem to want a similar situation in this country replacing radical Islam with radical Christianity (no homosexuals, no liberals, no immigrants, etc). Of course, they'll never admit to that because that would make them seem out of line! I am a Christian, but state sponsored theocracy doesn't fly for me.

Don't twist my words!!

I've stated numerous times on the AC that Christianity should NOT be forced upon people. I've also stated my main argument against gay marriage is because it goes against the laws of NATURE and the natural order of procreation; WHICH IT DOES!!!

But to YOU guys (LP's) simply standing AGAINST gay marriage IS bigotry!! Doesn't matter that we have friends who are gay, we've NEVER harmed or harassed a gay person, we treat everyone with respect, are perfectly fine with non-Christians and athiests and friends who are such!

No Sir!! I stand against gay marriage so I'm a bigot!! Is using the federal courst to legislate YOUR agenda, not forcing an ATHIESTS view upon people? Same thing you claim Christians are doing? Being athiests is a form of FAITH, but faith that there is NOTHING greater!! So 85% percent of the Country has to adhere to the NOTHING faith, or be branded names, right?

Thauch; I'm glad to hear that you are Christian, I'm sure Christ will be very proud of you making a clear and strong STAND for HIM!!

Not judging, just discerning; which CHRIST HIMSELF actually taught us to do. LP's love to taught that "don't judge people" to weaken peoples resolve. BUT, for those of us who actually know Christ's teachings, we know better!!

Christ said "By their works, ye shall know them" also "By their fruits ye shall know them" Meaning by what they PRODUCE!!

He also taught "Can an apple tree produce figs? No, it can not!" People who are TRUE CHRISTIANS, will STAND FOR HIM. Those who are not TRUE CHRISTIANS, will CLAIM all day long to be Christian but their works will tell a different story!!

Now, having said that. I still don't believe in making LAWS to force any religion as other Countries do. God wants our TRUE LOVE and obedience; which can ONLY come from FREE WILL!!

BUT, we will greatly differ on what MAKING LAWS actually is. Displaying the ten commandements or praying in school is NOT making a law. So what if it offends one or two, get over it!! No one is forcing them to pray!! The REAL truth is that people like you want EVERY mention or display of God in public REMOVED. But few LP's will admit this because this Country is still VAST majority Christian. I'm sure God will be so proud of you for taking up for HIM!!

MYFATHER!%

MYFATHER15, you CAN take YOUR "discernment" AND stick IT where THE sun DON'T shine. IN your SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS, you FORGET one OF the MOST beautiful PARABLES in THE bible: LUKE 9-14.
be LESS of A pharisee AND more LIKE the TAX-COLLECTOR. live AND let LIVE and YOUR life WILL be SO much MORE fulfilling. IF nothing ELSE, dislodge YOUR head FROM your HIND quarters EVERY now AND then (TRY to SEE the WORLD from SOMEONE else's PERSPECTIVE) and PERHAPS you WON'T come ACROSS as SUCH a BIGOT.

Wow, comment made at 11:39am

Wow, comment made at 11:39am sure doesn't sound like any comment a Christian should make. Maybe someone should read James 4:11. There are nicer ways to get your point across.

It is amazing how TRUTH will

It is amazing how TRUTH will get under peoples skin when they hear it!! They will twist and twist and twist and twist scripture and everything else to suit their agenda; but when you keep busting them out on it and bringing to light the REAL TRUTH; is when they get really angry!

See, I'm not one of THOSE Christians. The ones who believe as Christians we are to be meek and weak; THIS Christian is a WARRIOR!! I speak the truth BOLDLY and I have the knowledge of God's Word to back up what I say!!

Thauch, I'd like to see the scripture to back up your OPINION!! But hey, one shouldn't ask to hear it straight from Christs teaching, right? We should just listen to YOU and understand that YOU and other liberals are way smarter than us.

what A joke

TO classify ME as A liberal IS absolutely LAUGHABLE, but THEN again YOU have NO idea WHAT you ARE talking ABOUT, much LESS who I am. BUT i THANK you FOR acknowledging THAT i AM smarter THAN you. IT takes A lot TO get ONE of YOUR types TO admit SUCH a THING haha.

YOU can PUMP yourself UP with HOT air ALL you WANT (calling YOURSELF a WARRIOR and CLAIMING to SPEAK "truth") BUT at THE end OF the DAY it IS only HOT air AND i WILL allow GOD to BE the JUDGE of YOU and EVERYONE else OUT there. AFTER all, JUDGMENT (or DISCERNMENT or WHATEVER crackpot PHRASE you WANT to USE to DESCRIBE your SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS) is HIS job NOT yours.

IS my USE of CAPITALS helping ME prove MY point? ;)

"TO classify ME as A liberal

"TO classify ME as A liberal IS absolutely LAUGHABLE, but THEN again YOU have NO idea WHAT you ARE talking ABOUT, much LESS who I am."

Matthew 7:16 "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?"

Matthew 7:20 "Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them."

How are you supposed to KNOW anyone by their fruits, if you NEVER discern (not judge) their behavior? That simply does NOT make sense!!

Revelations 18:14 "And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all."

1st Corinthians 15:20 "But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept."

Christ [IS] our first fruits; so if you're NOT advocating FOR HIM, you're advocating against Him, period!!

II Thessalonians 3:6 "Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us."

How are we supposed to "withdraw" ourselves if we are not to discern ANYONES behavior and determine their behavior to be "disorderly"?

This typical LP lie that we are not to "judge" is crap!! We are NOT to judge the SOUL, but we ARE to discern and JUDGE people's behavior!! As a matter of fact, GOD Himself placed Judges over people in the old testament. But, I suppose your wisdom is ABOVE GOD's.

And you may not consider

And you may not consider yourself a liberal and that's fine!! But I call a spade a spade, plain and simple. Once again, "By their fruits, ye shall know them."

Your words are on THIS TOPIC and other threads (such as the taser thread) are PERFECTLY in line with liberal thinking! Maybe your a fiscal conservative or something, I don't know; thats true enough. But YOUR OWN WORDS are what makes me refer to you as liberal.
