    It never fails to amuse (or sometimes disgust me) to see the accusation of "liberal" tossed out during a disagreement.
    The first time it was said of me, I was offended. Me? A liberal?
    I've come to terms with it. I'm a liberal, and by the quotes listed above, you can take that to mean anything from someone who doesn't like conservatives, to someone who likes conservatives, or perhaps someone who uses an MN, or someone who doesn't, or perhaps I attend movies. Then again, not being liberal is pretty liberal, unless, of course, you're so liberal that you're an "organ of liberalism". (my personal favorite)

    I plan on continuing to collect these quotes when I see them.
    Enjoy, and I hope that it can bring a smile to your face to see how silly we can be. (and perhaps we have set a new record for the number of definitions one word can have!)


    1. Liberal "Christians" need to keep their mouth shut because they are a disgrace towards Bible Christianity.

    2. I am not so sure Pres. Bush was acting within the Law himself. (I am not saying he violated the Law like some Liberals in that I am no expert on this but I do question whether he did) I think spying on citizens within the country should only be done under court authority lest we become like North Korea.

    3. That is absolute nonsense, Ken. I do not think that you are a conservative isolationist as you pose. I think that you are a liberal who wants a weak executive, a worthless man who will tiptoe around Osama Bin Laden and worry about the civil rights of Hitler and Stalin.

    4. Saying the scripture forbids drinking is liberal religionism, not to mention legalism.

    5. Mike, you will find out soon enough that this board on the average is a hyper liberal board. They are FOR christians who drink, smoke, attend movies, dances, bars and smoke dope on occasion.

    6. I will ask the question again. Does anyone seriously believe that Swindoll, LaHaye, or Macarthur fellowships with liberals? If they don't, they are historic fundamentalists of the 1920s stripe!

    7. But with all the liberals coming out stating just about anything you feel like doing is ok, I guess the responses are expected. The standard is the standard it does not move and is not looking for loopholes if it is not ok for a christian to gamble in Texas then it is not ok for them in any other place.

    8. IF we are going to include "hyperfundamentalism" as a potential great enemy of truth, should we not also include liberalism, which is antithesis of hyperfundamentalism. Either extreme is a "clear and present danger" to truth. MH, you mentioned in jest the SBC, but the reality is that some within the SBC along with the ABC, and other liberal Baptist entities have been organs of liberalism and are even now spewing out their false message in the name of truth.


    9. You did, however, refer to KJVOism as "Truth", leading one do believe you are. Comparing KJVOism to truth is grossly liberal.

    10. Many who are so liberal in their views to think they can continue in sin after making a profession of faith, for instance.

    11. Christ is the only way.
    Just because someone is a Jew doesn't mean they are automatically saved.
    Seems like only the liberals would call it heresy. Am I right?

    12. I think it is interesting that the TNIV is not getting much attention. I guess political correctness does not belong in the translation room. I am quite suprised they went ahead and published it.

    Of course, there are probably a lot of liberal churches (non-Baptist OF COURSE!) who are purchasing them by the truck-load.

    13. Why would the authority of the Bible be a volatile issue? Isn't that what caused most of the separation in the Baptist camps from the liberal idea of a fallible Bible?

    14. I'm amazed how all these liberal MVOist who support James R. White refuse to answer hard questions.

    LOL!!!!

    I've been told to my face (twice) in church meetings that I couldn't be a Democrat and a Christian at the same time.

    Ok Blackbird, you asked for links to the thread. How did I know to save those?! Amazing. [​IMG] I have all save two, which I will look up later. The search engine here isn't my friend, so I'll save the joy of searching for later tonight!

    Of course, it's too late to edit the first thread, so here they are:

    Until then:

    1. Liberal "Christians" need to keep their mouth shut because they are a disgrace towards Bible Christianity.

    2. Kiffen: I am not so sure Pres. Bush was acting within the Law himself. (I am not saying he violated the Law like some Liberals in that I am no expert on this but I do question whether he did) I think spying on citizens within the country should only be done under court authority lest we become like North Korea.2 LINK

    3. church mouse guy: That is absolute nonsense, Ken. I do not think that you are a conservative isolationist as you pose. I think that you are a liberal who wants a weak executive, a worthless man who will tiptoe around Osama Bin Laden and worry about the civil rights of Hitler and Stalin. LINK

    4. Johnv: Saying the scripture forbids drinking is liberal religionism, not to mention legalism. LINK

    5. Shiloh: Mike, you will find out soon enough that this board on the average is a hyper liberal board. They are FOR christians who drink, smoke, attend movies, dances, bars and smoke dope on occasion. LINK

    6. Paul33: I will ask the question again. Does anyone seriously believe that Swindoll, LaHaye, or Macarthur fellowships with liberals? If they don't, they are historic fundamentalists of the 1920s stripe! LINK

    7. Buckster75: But with all the liberals coming out stating just about anything you feel like doing is ok, I guess the responses are expected. The standard is the standard it does not move and is not looking for loopholes if it is not ok for a christian to gamble in Texas then it is not ok for them in any other place. LINK

    8. Circuitrider: IF we are going to include "hyperfundamentalism" as a potential great enemy of truth, should we not also include liberalism, which is antithesis of hyperfundamentalism.

    I have been called a fundamentalist, a liberal and one who makes fundamentalists look liberal.

    Seems like Jesus was criticized by the liberals and fundamentalists of the day. He just pointed them to what God said.

    JamesJ: Anyone who follows a liberal path in this life is not following how God is. God told Israel again and again to turn from their way and back to His. God is conservative!!

    Good point, gb93433. It depends on who is throwing the stone.

    We have the liberals who want to ignore scripture they don't like. And we have the legalists who think God needs their help and want to write some scripture of their own.

    Think about the very definition of "fundamentalist". Why would anyone want to be anything else?

    I think God wants us to be more than labeled a fundamentalist. He wants us to be radicals for Christ. Christ requires a radical obedience that does not agree with the typical fundamentalism, liberalism and any other isms of today. Too many isms are an exchange of thought without any action to reach people with the eternal truth of the gospel.

    Liberals, and Conservatives need to soften there heads and follow the Bible, If Christ were President he would not legislate in favor of Gay marriage, or Abortion. "They should be free to sin as they please" I'm sure the Ted Bundys and Adolf Hitlers will agree with you on that. "We need a safer country" wake up there are more problems than Iraq! If the conservatives are so Holy how come the "Conservative" south has the highest devorce rate? It would seem they above all would have this marriage thing together. Like wise if the liberals are so open minded how come they have the Howard Deans who get on national television, and Qoute there hatred for republicans because "there basically a white christian group" wait theres something wrong with being white? or christian? How ironic that some one who had zero blacks in his cabnet during his run for president, would play the race card. need I go down the list of "conservative baptist preachers" who have been having homosexual relations since there ordination? or The baby murdering John Kerry's?

    The fact is no one has it all together, except it and better your selves. Or you can continue to sit here and slander each other in front of all the New believers who may be reading this thread and turn them off to fellowshipping completely.

    If I were God I would slap all of you, then make you all hug and say three good things abou each other. enjoy the thread guys just try to lighten up a little Ok? Oh and uh....don't hate me.

    :D :D :D

    Straight and Narrow,

    I'm not saying the republicans got it all right but how do you vote for a party where it's platform is pro-abortion? I'm not saying take the lesser of two evils even though sometimes with the agenda of democrats it seems like they leave you no room. If you vote democratic you must be saying you endorse the party platform. Thus you must be saying you condone abortion? Can you have it both ways. I know other folk that hold a position like you. I don't understand it? So how do you do it?
    Simply by looking at alot of your posts over time on the board I just get a kick out of your nickname. Shouldn't it be Broad and Wide? It would sure fit the political party you affiliate with?
    You know we can debate whether it is right or wrong for christians to drink beer or go to movies or othe silly things but friend THOU SHALT NOT KILL is not up for debate. Abortion is murder.So explain to me with SCRIPTURE or scripture principles just how you pull the lever or punch a card for a pro abortion candidate when you know it is murder? Educate this ole country boy just how that works?

    Ohh oh oh! Shannon I'm sure Straight and Narrow will have his own comments to make but I gotta say this.

    How can you vote for a party that has a history of saying that they are against abortion but have done next to nothing to actually stop it? Thou shalt not lie is also a commandment.

    The Bible doesn't say to beware the wolf. It says to beware the wolf that comes disguised in sheeps clothing. If democrats are the wolf then republicans are the wolf in sheeps clothing.

    How it works is that Jesus is not going to judge us by our political party. There are many Democrats, like myself, who oppose abortion. But you know there are a lot of other political issues other than abortion.

    Christ in his description of the Judgement in MA 25 emphasizes such things as feeding, clothing, and providing housing for the poor. The Democratic party has historically stood in favor of doing these things and the Republican party has opposed them in favor of tax breaks for the rich. Read in MA 25 what will happen to those who do not have love for their fellow man. It should give you concern for your eternal destiny as a Republican.

    Then, Republicans, pushed for the current unjust war against Iraq and got it though Congress and the UN by lying about the existence of WMD. They won the last two presidential elections by fraud.

    Finally, who was it that initially made abortion legal? It was a Republican dominated Supreme Court. That means the blood of all those murdered unborn children is on everyone who support that party.

    Now do you understand?

    First of all there's not a sheckle's worth of difference in either party. (That's why I call all you folks who are out there waving one flag or the other "Republicrats"
    Secondly to address the quote above....I have not seen it in the scriptures where the Lord said to take someone else's money and support the weak,maimed,halt and poor. If He did we'd have to support the blind too and then the demoricans would never have to have another political fund raiser.
    Thanks ------Bart
