    Are you channelling Trump ironically, or is this serious? :D

    Being truly pro-life involves a LOT more than just the issue of abortion.

    And if one is a Christian, then they have the choice of believing in Jesus or believing in Trump, as believing in both is certainly not morally possible. Jesus was not materialistic, nor hedonistic, nor dishonest, but Trump certain has been all three-- plus more.

    So according to you there are no Christians supporting TRUMP.

    Is that your position?


    Are you one of those who claim men are not to judge?



    Thanks

    How can one claim to be Christian yet support parties and politicians whose policies and platforms oppose everything Christ stood for?

    What is this garbage? BLM is not rioting. Do you think black lives do NOT matter?? Do you believe abortion is more of a problem that what this country does to it's already living black citizens?

    Please speak honestly here. We want to hear what is really in your heart. Do Black lives NOT really matter to you, and you could care less about all that fussing they're doing? Would you like to see Trump put them all down, where they belong? Be truthful.

    What's your evidence for that? Have you looked at a poll lately?

    If you actually care about reducing the number of abortions (you'll never eliminate them completely, even if you outlaw them), then you should support policies that reduce income inequality, guarantee paid parental leave, increase the minimum wage, provide universal healthcare, and improve access to contraception. Welcome to the Left! :)

    The truth is, they do not care about babies lives. If they did, they would be supporting this. But they don't. So they lie.

    The malignant response to the BLM movement such as that demonstrated above precisely reflects the attitude responsible for Trump in the first place.

    The problem is that there's no objective standard for Christians.
    I'm inclined to just accept whatever people label themselves. If you tell me you're a Christian I believe it.
    On the other hand, there's the standard Christian theology boilerplate. Virgin birth, Trinitarianism, that sort of thing.

    Then there is behaving in a Christian fashion. Christians aren't good at that, in my experience. Trump is a case in point. His entire life is an orgy of greed and pride and lust and deceit. But all he had to do to get the support of evangelical Christians was to hold up a Bible and say something churchy.

    It left me even more convinced that Christianity has nothing to do with God, and morality is of little importance. That's both the history of Christendom and the current reality here in the Christian Nation of the USA.

    But the mayhem is instigated and largely fomented by the police, and the crime by hooligans usually unaffiliated with BLM.

    Remember the civil rights protestors of the '60s? It wasn't King's followers causing the violence, though, like today, they were the ones being blamed for it.
    So you're advocating comprehensive sex education and free access to contraceptives?
    And how are you defining babies? The left supports mother and childcare legislation much more strongly than the right, or are you defining insensate foetuses as 'babies'?
    Are sperm and ova also babies?

    Then do you oppose systemic racism in this country which hurts blacks? Do you consider racism sin?

    BTW, "All lives matters" should include "black lives". But it doesn't. And that is why they call it out, "black lives matter". Because the systems says "black lives do not matter". BLM is saying they should, and they do, despite what the structures of our society say otherwise.

    I think this child's sign says it perfectly. "All lives do matter", but.... understand what this is actually about, please. I hope it inspires compassion in you to combat the ignorance you are following. As a Christian, you should be on the front lines supporting them.

    Friend, you have not been speaking to the right people about Christianity.

    There is a standard, it's the NT.

    Sadly most people accept what their preacher says and never check their bible to see if their preacher is teaching truth or not (Ac.17:11) (Jn 5:39). That's the reason we have so much confusion about religion in the USA.



    If that is the conclusion you came to then satan convinced you to follow him.

    I hope you will reconsider your thoughts and actions.

    If I can be of any help let me know.

    I'm not a bible scholar but I have studied the bible most of my life.

    The eunuch in (Acts 8:30,31) asked for a man to guide him.


    Thanks for posting.

    There is NO SYSTEMIC RACISM.

    There is racism no doubt by some but not systemic.

    You have been watching tooo much CNN.


    I gotta get back to the OBAMAGATE INVESTIGATION.

    I think just like last time Trump will be expected to lose but will win again. It was called a whitelash by some black commentators as I clearly remember in 2016.

    With BLM and left-wing politicians stirring people up in 2020, the backlash and whitelash will give Trump a surprise win again.

    I am white and will vote Republican as the better of the two options and be part of the whitelash. Speaking for my silent pack of voters we believe in fairness and brotherly love for all and not hate with such anti-police and anti-American strong undercurrents. The anger of the left is not justified in the reality of America in 2020.

    I should know better, but I'm still a little surprised at how some
    Christians have such rigid views on how others should be Christian.
