That has nothing to do with the title of this tread, nor with being a Christian but is in the rhelm of the political world.  Further, he would not be my Senator since our Senators are already in office.


Classic evasion of the question!


Evasion - with the addition of an attempt to divert is not unknown here...

Did I say that?  I don't know what is meant by 'evangelical' Christian, but according to the scriptures of the New Testament,  Christians are commanded to abhor the conduct but not the person.  Of course this is difficult for a person who is not a Christian to understand.


........ Nor for a person who interprets the Bible for their own agenda.

 

As far as the actions of Moore relative to teenage girls ...... note the words of Jesus:

Luke 17:2
"It would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and to be thrown into the sea than to cause one of these little ones to stumble."

 

A huge contrast to what you'd like to believe Tex!

I didn't join this thread to discuss politics nor the merits of an individual elected by the voters of another state.  The subject is "What is Christianity Coming To?" and that is the topic. If it was about politics or a certain individual then the subject should have said so.

If one was knowedgable of the life of Jesus they would know that he also associated with the just and the unjust.

If you were a Christian, then you'd have your answers.

The thesis of the thread is that EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS are endorsing Donald Trump, a womanizer; endorsing Roy Moore, an accused pedophile; and Steve Green, a smuggler of religious antiquities.

 

It is perplexing that they are doing so.

 

The question posed is why?

 

Has the direction that EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS follow changed?

 

The only response I have gotten so far is the question: ARE YOU A CHRISTIAN????

 

That has absolutely nothing to do with the thesis of the thread.
