On Christians Coming Out Of The Closet

What exactly does separation of Church and State mean?  Can pastors endorse candidates from the pulpit?  Should politicians allow their religious beliefs affect their political decisions?  Should Christians keep their faith to themselves, relegating it to the personal aspects of their lives?

Or should Christians just grab their Bibles and come out of the closet?

That's what I explore in this episode (and part 2- stay tuned) of Church & State.

I say let's grab those Bibles and break down that closet door.

I look forward to part two!

It really is silly for anyone to say that they divorce their politics from their religion. What you believe WILL come out in your decisions. This seems particularly true when you happen to be liberal...but then they don't seem to have any problem with it. Christins DO need to stand on their beliefs and not give in...

I totally agree, RE Parker!

You can only "coexist" in hell!
I believe American (professed)Christianity has lost its savor and needs regeneration.
Cultures are not changed by the masses, but by dedicated minority's.
If everybody is doing or accepting "it", search it out and question it biblicaly.
Don't be afraid to get shot in the head for your faith! If we truly be in Christ, where is the sting of death?

You should become a political speaker, Gabriel. You have a very 'capturing' way of talking, that makes people listen.

Thanks, Jemimah! I appreciate that. :-)

(And who knows, we'll see what God does.)

Jemimah said...

Yes, God's will be done!

Wondeful Gabe. The shirt is great. That was perfect facial and vocal expressions on your plea for them to coexist. Someone needs to make a version of the shirt that points out that the other side cannot seperate "their faith"
from "their" politics either. They are the biggest bunch of church ladies ever. Cramming their religion down everyone elses throat.

Those that are really comitted to their faith like Peirs Morgan(?) cannot resist doing a little street preaching whenever possible to demonstrate their zeal.

"Church ladies."

Love it, as usual- thanks for stopping by, Mr. Terry!
