    I'd say it's possible to be any of these. Now, if you were to ask whether it's good (or consistent or pleasing to God).......Well, that might be a different story for some of these options.

    I couldn't vote for Mr. Obama. I'm not American. I would, however, if I could.

    On spitting out chewing tobacco, I know one man who carries a glass jar to spit his tobacco juice into!

    The poll suggests there is an alternative way to be a Christian. True redemption has nothing to do with any of these things.

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Is it just me or do others here think it is a bit strange that two people actually voted that you can't be a Christian if you attend a church with a woman pastor or if you voted for Obama for President?

    Also, one person voted that you can't be a Christian and not prefer to read the KJV???

    Sorry... but isn't this twilight zone stuff????

    ------------------------------------------

    Nope!

    He is a citizen of my home village. I thought it was his coffee, and I asked him if he drank cold coffee. Eweeeee!

    Cheers,

    The poll asked questions requiring "yes" or "no" answers but did not give "yes" and "no" choices. I assumed checking the boxes meant a "yes."

    I believe its possible for one to be Christian & be kind to people (even homosexuals). There's a difference between being kind & accepting their lifestyle as being "normal". I'll never accept homosexuality as being "normal".

    One's salvation is not contingent upon one's political position(s).

    One's political positions are a result of their Christianity

    Pharasaical rubbish. That's nothing but an excuse to unrighteously judge someone's salvation based on their political opinions.

    Yes and no. On one hand, one's faith definitely impacts one's world view and thus, his/her politics. On the other hand, I don't think God is either a Republican or a Democrat. There are a lot of issues where people of faith can disagree. I may have my own feelings about a public option in healthcare reform, but my bias for or against has nothing to do with Scripture.

    Good point. I personally would probably question the Christian walk of a person who advocates elective abortion. But we're not talking about righeousness, or Christian living, or anything like that. The OP asks strictly about salvation. A person's political view is not a litmus test for a person's salvific state.

    If your faith has no effect on your politics then your faith is worthless.

    You're confusing faith with salvation. One's politics does not determine one's salvation.

    Again your faith determines your politics.
