Quote# 90481

I recently read an article from a self-proclaimed "Christian Democrat" explaining why they would be voting for Obama, and to a larger degree, supporting the Democratic Party. I am intentionally not linking to the original article for a reason. The article was full of the very kind of "fine-sounding arguments" that Paul warns us in Colossians to be on guard against. Given the sorry state of biblical Christianity in America, I know that several of these arguments could easily ensnare and trap a lot of confused Christians -- and I won't willfully provide a potential stumbling block to any believer.

Oh wow, this is true delusion in its purest form.

Never mind dismissing arguments out of hand because you disagree with them; now they're advocating dismissing out of hand arguments THAT YOU AGREE WITH because a part of the Bible told them to do so.

Up is down, black is white, ignorance is strength etc. etc.

In other words, you won't link to the article because if people read it they might realize that it makes sense.

Pete, all Christians are confused. I don't think one more stumbling block will even be noticed by most of them. In fact many of them could become ensnared if they tried to tie their own shoe laces.

I've seen many, many arguments by Christians claiming that Christians in good standing can't vote for Obama. It's this kind of hyperbole which has turned the GOP into God's Own Party.

"I've seen many, many arguments by Christians claiming that Christians in good standing can't vote for Obama. It's this kind of hyperbole which has turned the GOP into God's Own Party."

Which is highly ironic considering that Obama is a mainstream Christian whereas Romney is part of what these people usually regard as a Satanic cult.

So like the woman who posted the lies about Buddhism a few days ago, you prefer to tell people what to believe rather than allow them the freedom to research and decide for themselves...and christians wonder why their religion is looked upon as a cult.

Cause there's several types of Christians. Godly Christians, Jesusit Christians, Tradition Christians, and biblical Christians. Godly ones prefer to think of god from the perspective he's benevolent, Jesus type ones prefer to think on his message and works, focus on social justice, Tradition based like Catholics tend to rely on an ever-changing church, while biblical ones... worship the bible, not god. They produce salvation anxiety and other nasty things.

If you can't bother to listen to a CHristian with a different perspective of you, you truly arg... blarg. No, I will not use the word sheep. It is overused and abused. Lemmings following honey!

In my opinion, Paul is directly in opposition of what Jesus taught. Funny how most christian follow Paul's teachings and not the examples given by their messiah.

"biblical Christianity" would probably be more of a socialist/communist thing.

With all that caring for the poor and sharing all things in common bit.

Oh no, scarily persuasive opinions...! Gotta shut those fuckers down, fast. Wouldn't want to infect the site with intelligence.

There is so much loonry going on at that site that it scared me. I thought I was far too jaded for that. You could literally pick any random comment and post it here.

So, you don't link to the article because you're afraid he's right?. I don't think Paul warned you against that.

@Thinking_Allowed

Paul was likely a number of gentile authors, apparently. Would explain why the man who said there was no slave and free, no woman and man would suddenly be gunho about female submission and slavery.

Many fine-sounding arguments are fine-sounding because there are fine arguments. Paul, a lying, misogynistic zealot, is warning you against fine arguments. Maybe Paul isn't the best source of advice.

Perhaps the sad state of biblical Christianity may be attributable partly to the fact that the Roman Empire no longer exists.

Intentionally and for a reason?

Jesus would have voted Democrat too ya tit!

Paul would have voted Republican, Jesus would have voted Democrat.

So good to see that so many conservative Christians decide to listen to the words of a man who never met Jesus and yet claims to speak for him.
