  •  A Christian's outlook on this (6+ / 0-)

    I am Christian, I'm never going to deny it any time. Now, Biblically, this is wrong. I will explain.

    Romans 13 explains the need to submit to authorities and obey the law of the land. The law of our land is the U.S. Constitution, which under the Bill of Rights-Amendment 1- expresses "FREEDOM OF RELIGION". Now, it is wrong under Christian fundamentalism to subject them to forced religon. I'm not bashing Christians here, heck I love my faith, I'm just saying that who ever made this decision was misguided and this horrible statute needs to be corrected as soon as possible.

      or Christian Recosntructionists--they beelive they MUST make this a Christian NAtion under Biblical Law as a requirement for the Rapture and Jesus comign again.

      The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        But I respectfully disagree with them. Lets look at it this way, you can find something in the Bible to justify anything! That doesn't mean the Bible is meant to make them do those things. Like slavery for example.

        But these Christian Reconstructionalists face one flaw in their logic. The rapture is meant to happen when the world has pretty much as a whole abandoned God. The anti-christ will come at the worst moment (like at 99% athiesm). Thats more of my interpretation of when it will happen, I could support it but you'll have to take my word. However, the Bible itself states the Rapture or 2nd coming of Christ is inevitable and can not be avoided. So achieving a Purely Christian Nation in America is not only a waste of time, it basically ignores the prophecies they claim to be fulfilling.

        My Christian theology is the best way to convert is by reaching out and letting them know what drives me. So I'm actually not converting, I'm just letting them see how it improved my life. And then they have a choice to accept Christ on their own. Giving someone a choice is much more successful than forcing them when it comes to converting.

          in fact,I think you ARE--but they disagree. And they are very, very militant.  And they're the ones driving the infiltration of the military.  A lot of churches have been steeplejacked, like the SBC.They believed that the entire world, including most even slightly more liberal Christians, have turned away from Christ, hence the Rapture could happen now.

          Raised Catholic. The nuns said our lives were better sermons than any amount of tryign to cnvert with words. And as a WIccan, I do NOY proselytize--we don't accept anyone yougner than 18 into classes withotu explicit permission from aprents, and we beelive peopel fidn hte PAth they ar meant to be on.
