Can a liberal be a Christian?
By Lou Buren
I guess that depends on how liberal someone is. First off, let me say politics and faith go hand in hand. There is no separation of church and state. There is no law stating there is, and there is nothing in the constitution that says there is. A persons faith defines who they are. And so does a lack of faith.
Let's take a look at liberals, they typically support or advocate things of a wicked nature. Things that a Christian would not. Things like abortion and homosexuality. They typically believe the evolution lie over creation by God.
So because of the type of things they advocate, I'd have to say NO it's not possible to be a liberal and a Christian. Just like it's not possible to be a police officer and a bank robber. I mean the bank robber could call himself a police officer, but the two titles conflict with the actions involved too much for one to also be the other.
Now let's take a look at the liberal phrase (pro-choice). Isn't that a nice word, that makes people think it could be something good? I mean everyone loves choices right? And Christians are typically (pro-life). Let me ask you something, what is the opposite of life? The opposite of life is death. So if you are not in favor of life, your (pro-death). Doesn't sound so nice now does it? That's what happens when you shine light on darkness.
There is never ever a reason for a woman to have an abortion. And I mean no reason ever. Some might argue that and ask "What if the woman was raped"? Ok, say she was raped. The rapist is a criminal and deserves to be in prison. But the baby is innocent. Why kill a child for what it's father did? The Bible is clear in it's teachings that God knit us in our mothers womb.
That means life is created at conception. No one should have the right to kill an unborn child, just as no one should have the right to kill a child of any other age. Because age is the only difference here. A baby should not ever be slaughtered for any reason. God put guidelines on sex for a reason. One man and one woman are to be married before they ever have sex. Sex in wed-lock is the only way God allows us to have sex.
All other sex is sin. If people lived by Gods word and laws, most of the terrible things people deal with now wouldn't be an issue.
Just some thoughts from yours truly.
