    In spite of what may self-professing christians say here there are Christians of many political persuasions. This attitude of aligning the Christian faith with a particular political party has seriously hurt our ability to evangelize to the lost. How receptive to the gospel message will a lost person be if they are told that Satan supports their political party as one seriously misdirected poster has said here?

    When people try to mix religion and politics, politics does not become clean, but religion does become soiled.

    My people were Democrats since there were Democrats. The radical agenda that was thrust upon the party after 1972 has caused my party to leave me.

    How in the world any mature Christian can support abortion rights, gay rights, gay marriage, and the rest of the Democratic social agenda, is beyond me. I am not satisfied with the GOP, but at least I can hold my head up and bow it to pray in public without some PC police correcting me.

    God may not be a Democrat or a Republican, but ONE THING I KNOW:

    GOD IS PRO-LIFE.

    You'd think that any former fetus would be pro life. Maybe that's it, these guys were hatched in a laboratory!

    How receptive would a lost person be to a self-professed christian that supports the abortion and gay rights agendas? How can a christian witness to lost people when they support unbiblical agendas?

    Doesnt the Bible have something to say about "serving two masters"?

    Democrats(Liberals) support Gay rights
    Democrats (Liberals) want to legalize drugs
    Democrats(Liberals) are pro abortion
    Democrats(Liberals) want God/Religion out

    There is a reason they vote overwhelmingly Democrat while polls show Christians vote overwhelmingly Republican. Whom you align with says alot about you and your beliefs. There is also a reason Ministers overwhelmingly vote Republican:

    Can't say 100% that God would be a Republican, but I can say 100% that he would align more with the Republicans values and beliefs than the Liberal Democrats.:godisgood:

    I dont think that I am as "misdirected" as the self-professed christians that claim to represent the gospel while supporting candidates that have vowed to promote and expand gay rights and abortion.

    It just doesnt make sense to me.

    And I stand by my observation that Satan must be jumping for joy because of the platform of the liberals. And, Satan must be even happier that he has "self-professed christians" serving his cause, and promoting his agenda.

    I dont know how many of you liberals that support abortion and gay rights candidates are pastors, but I am certain that at least some of you must be.

    let me just say one thing to you. I would not knowingly listen to any sermon by such a pastor, much less join or attend their church. How a person can preach the gospel and support such garbage is beyond me.

    That's correct. So am I. But that includes more than just being against abortion. It means being against In Vitro Fertilization, unjust war in which thousands of innocent human beings are killed, unjust capital punishment. Saving the life of an unborn child is extremely important but no more important than saving a 6 year old Iraqi child or a 44 year old Iraqi woman for that matter.

    How can a Christian witness to lost people when he supports an unBiblical agenda that believes in an unnecessary, preventative war against a nation that had not attacked us?

    How can a Christian witness to lost people when he supports an unBiblical agenda that believes that widows and orphans and others down the economic chain should pull themselves up by their own bootstraps when they don't even have a pair of boots?

    Who's for in vitro fertilization? Liberals/Democrats
    Who is for war? No one I know. The "unjust" is a matter of opinion which history will have to sort out.

    Unjust capital punishment? No one I know is for that. But who is against capital punishment (which God instituted, btw)? Liberals/Democrats.

    As for Iraqi lives, where you got that comparison is outta left field. Except apparently you believe our troops go in and murder, maim, rape, and plunder innocent Iraqi people. Well, apples and oranges. Nice try.

    It seems that what we witness here on the BB is a non-Biblical world view by professing Christians/Baptists. I find it amazing that people who call themselves Baptist and who regularly attend a Baptist church hold such anti-Biblical world views, especially when it comes to supporting candidates who are for abortion and letting aborted babies born alive left to die in dirty laundry (Obama). This leads me to conclude that either (a), these professing Christians/Baptists don't regularly attend a Baptist church, (b) their pastor doesn't preach solid Biblical foundation, or (c), they are not really Baptists but have called themselves a Baptist in order to join the BB.

    Sad.

    Typical, unChristian, conservative judgmental tripe by LadyEagle. Which is why threads such as this one and the clearly inflammatory one about Satan's preference for a political party should not be allowed on a Christian board.

    Sad. :tear:

    God is my judge, not you, Ken. And He will be the Judge when you pull the lever in the voting booth for a murderer.

    Thank you Ken...you just proved LE's point.


    And abcgrad94, you hit the nail on the head, we christians need to start living a life that is a testimony for God, not for the world. Excellent post.
