Liberal and Christian

I saw a post on Facebook that really rubbed me the wrong way. I get so tired of hearing that you can still be a Christian and be liberal.

So, can you really be liberal and still be a Christian?!? Maybe, but not totally in my opinion. There is a difference in claiming to be a Christian and being a follower of Jesus Christ. Of course, it isn't my place to judge your eternity if you are liberal and claim to be a Christian but here are my thoughts on it.....just saying

You can be liberal and claim to be a Christian but you are not a follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ. If you voted for our current President, you are not a follower of Christ. If you believe in National Health Care, you are not a follower of Christ. If you voted for ANY Demo in office, present day, you are not a follower of Christ. If you did either of those things, you support abortion and gay marriage, which in turn, does not make you a follower of Christ.

Now, if being liberal means that you think we should help those less fortunate, then you can claim to be a Christian. Other than that, you are not. You can say you are all day long but Jesus himself you tell you no.......just saying

I was the offending facebooker. Sorry if it rubbed you the wrong way but I posted it because I was tired of being rubbed the wrong way when people assume that by being literl that you are talking about supporting abortions etc. I am not.

I do support helping the unfortunate, I think God would want me too. I don't think he would want people to die because they can't afford healthcare. I am not saying that the plan they are presenting to us is the right one AT ALL but I am saying some reformation should be done. The system is somewhat broken.

Jesus was an adovocate for helping the unfortunate, and by that I don't mean people who screw the system that is a whole other issue.

As for the gay marriage issue. I don't think God hates gay people. He is a tolerant God...other than that who knows.

It isn't for me to judge. I would never live the lifestyle but God loves us all and I don't think they are going to hell...that is just me.

People say it is unatural, because a child can't come from the union but I would argue that birth control is a sin because it does the same thing. I don't use birth control for this very reason.

I just try to love them,as Jesus said love my neighbor. I am not going to judge them because I have a plank in my on eye.

Any sin is a stumbling block that puts you father away from God.

I think regardless of your sin if you are truly sorry and ask for forgiveness he forgives. That doesn't mean it is a get out of jail card and you can keep doing it.

My point is that while I don't agree with things others are engaging in I try to be tolerate and still love them and try to make the knowledgable about God...maybe they have never been exposed to it.

I am not condoning abortion etc.

I still love ya to pieces and I TOTALLY respect your opinion. It's just how I feel.

I don't think God is going to line us up and say you are a baptist you go to heaven, you were penecostal, to hell you go,etc.

Who knows I may be wrong. I just know that I go to church a couple of times a week, try to take classes to learn and grow more, read my bible and pray daily and try to have the best relationship with God I can have everyday.

Hope this makes some kinda sense ;P
