    Recent Candidates Backhmanm and Perry had no bones publicly sharing that they have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour.

    Romney does not hide the fact that he is a Mormon.

    Should a politician share their religious testimony?
    Is there too little they could say - is there too much to say?

    Ron Paul is an Episcopalian who currently attends a Baptist church. He stated that “I have never been one who is comfortable talking about my faith in the political arena,”

    He only left the Episcopal Church over the issue of Abortion.

    Has Ron Paul ever stated that he is born again - or does he still accept the Episcopal belief of how he will obtain entrance to Heaven?

    I am not sure where you are going with this, but while modern Episcopals are liberal, traditionally they have been orthodox. Remember, the Wesley brothers... remember J.C. Ryle... think about J.I. Packer... They were stalwarts of orthodoxy.

    There have been several times when I heard Ron talk about being a Christian. There was one radio interview during the last elections where a Christian talked to Paul about his Christian beliefs. However, to say he is weak is acceptable as I think his view of Christian engagement in the public square is weak and not well thought out.
