Born again Christians, some of them who speak in tongues and wiggle on the floor, don't try to do a darn thing politically to change anything.
I'm not exactly a practicing Christian anymore, certainly don't currently attend church that is, but I always thought born again evangelical Christians were suppose to live the life and I guess they don't anymore.
You'll have to excuse my speaking in tongues and wiggle on the floor sarcasm bit....it was those kind of people that ultimately drove me away from church.
How do you know that they are Christians? Can you prove that they are Christians?
I would think that a person who claims he is a born again Christian is an attending member of a evangelical church....is one.
You or I may judge them as not being very Christian or some of their actions etc....but the people I wrote about earlier today who vote liberal and NDP are actual practicing evangelical Christians. I don't think I can publish their names and addresses for you to go and visit them.
It is not necessary, for you to publish their names and addresses and for me to go and visit them, to explain how you think you know that they are Christians and how you think you have proven to yourself that they are Christians.
Someone, who merely claims to be a born again Christian and is an attending member of a evangelical church, is not necessarily a Christian.
Do you disagree with Matthew 7:14-20, Acts 20:29-30, and 2 Peter 2:1?
“Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:14-20)
“For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” (Acts 20:29-30)
“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.” (2 Peter 2:1)
