Are you an ABO like me PO'd at JR for getting called a RINO? Truce declared! Please DONATE!

Attention "Anyone But Obama" (ABO) FReepers! If you go to the thread at the link you will will see that JimRob has "declared a truce" and hundreds of ABO FReepers are now vigorously defending their belief, which I share, that the ineligible Marxist Manchurian MUST BE DEFEATED to preserve the Republic...without fear of "the ZOT"! Please consider a DONATION not just to fund renewal of expression and amplification of your ABO views, but let's over-achieve this FReepathon to get JR his new equipment!

IMO, Free Republic and FReepers could be vital in swing states in rallying just enough conservatives to tip the election and prevent our troops from having to salute for even one day longer than necessary an ineligible Marxist committed to destroying the USA !

As a side note I just received a newletter from Komondo that Religious web sites are getting more virus’s than porn sites, just a thought. Maybe the Liberal hackers are trying to keep us away.

Defending the faith is ‘un-Christ like’?!

What bible do you read the New World Translation of the JW’s?

And I see you have no intention of stopping the name calling of those of us who stand on our conservative values rather than vote for a RINO and cave.

Yep, seal point lynx. Hubby is allergic to cats, but siamese have less of the hormone that produces allergic reactions. It is the difference between not being able to have a cat at all and having one sleep on our bed (!).

We have had two others, who have gone on to their cat condos in the sky, and this one was scheduled to be euthanized (because she wasn’t friendly) but after they saw her love right up to me, they let me adopt her instead. She is not quite 5 months and has already had a rough life.

There is a lot of religious hate being spewed here Jim , and I don't understand why you allow it.Land of the free, home of the brave, and the freedom to worship freely, or not. Please, many of us just want the vile anti-mormon threads to just disappear.

Like too many other veteran posters, I have gone silent and withdrawn from FreeRepublic. I have done so for the reasons quoted above, for the ban on positively discussing Presidential candidates, and for the generous "truce"/permission to discuss them again.

Despite my reluctance to rejoin conversation, I cannot leave a fine conservative veteran poster, like eastforker, left hanging alone.

This delight in religion bashing being advocated & viciously defended, is absolutely un-American. It has been allowed to go on way too long. Both those who engage in it, and those who allow it personally turn my stomach.

Eastforker, speaks for a great many here, and for a great many that used to be here. Salute.

Then why do you object to those who witness to them.

You may not like our methods, but they DO work. That is how me and several other ex-Mormon freepers left Mormonism and came to the Christ of the Bible. Including at least 3 from the ‘anti-Mormon’ threads alone in the last 4 years.

There is no one method to reaching people and those trapped in pseudo-Christian cults need to see the errors of their group BEFORE they can be loved to the Lord.

It is completely different than witnessing to the ‘unchurched’. You may not agree with our methods, but they are Biblical and they are effective. I have been in ministry to Mormons for almost 20 years (since I left) and have seen it work over and over and over again.

Just food for thought.

Just for the record, and to awaken you from your ignorance, reaganaut, Elsie most likely remembers me because he and I fought side by side, defending the Word and the Truth on many a Crevo thread a few years back.

Whatever you're trying to do to minimize me as a 'so called Christian' who refuses to defend the faith won't hold up against the truth.

To: Jim Robinson

Thanks Jim for your very thoughtful reply.

I agree with what you have written to me about the cancer of Socialism. IMHO, we are on the same page.

Your partial quote: “ - - - You cannot separate fiscal conservatism from social conservatism or national security conservatism - - - “ IS what I see has happened on Free Republic.

For example, on any given FR thread the Social Conservatives are more passionate, more abundant, and less fearful of being banned than the Fiscal Conservatives are.

On FR, we should NOT be separated, but joined in a multi-pronged attack on the body politic: currently Socialism, but rapidly morphing into Bolshevik Marxism.

Speaking/writing ONLY for myself here on FR, I would like to see a better balance between the Fiscal And Social Conservatives by expanding your Truce to include more posting freedom for those of us who consider THE MAIN PROBLEM to be US Federal Government Overspending by “both” of our sorry political parties.

IMHO, it does NOT matter who or which party overspends OUR Federal dollars, it matters THAT our dollars were overspent!

Politicians come and go, but the Federal financial insanity of “spending more money than was taken in during the previous year” stays entrenched in our sorry political system.

To quote Margret Thatcher: “The problem with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”

We are those “other people.” Our politicians have TAXED US ENOUGH ALREADY. Free us to join in the two-pronged attack on Socialism: Social AND Financial.

The Liberal Agenda Media, Democrats and RINOs love it that those of us who desire to Conserve the very best of America have not mounted an attack on them to force them to live by the reality of money.

Radio announcer Paul Harvey said it best: “WHEN YOUR OUTGO EXCEEDS YOUR INCOME, YOUR UPKEEP WILL BE YOUR DOWNFALL.”

To this point in the Republican Primary Campaign, the politicians have NOT focused on this reality of money.

Santorum’s “Suspended” Campaign is an excellent example of how powerful the “Court of Public Opinion,” (owned by the Liberal Agenda Media), is in diverting attention AWAY from the reality of money.

Each American family MUST focus on the reality of money EVERY DAY.

Let us at FR challenge our sorry politicians in ALL political parties to do the same WITH OUR MONEY!

____________

” - - - Government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed.”

On this point you and I are in disagreement. We are not on the same page, but I suspect on the same chapter.

IMHO, there are no longer “Checks and Balances” in our Federal Government.

To list just a few examples of evidence: the rule of Constitutionally Justified Laws are circumvented by Regulations written by un-elected political appointees; the Majority Leader in the US Senate will never see his well-deserved view of the inside of a locked jail cell for refusing to pass a Constitutionally Mandated US Federal Budget for 3 YEARS, - - - etc., etc., etc.

In other words, the “Government” does whatever it damn well wants to, and has NO concern for what the “consent” of what we, their serfs, try to express.

____________

I apologize if I have wandered off the topic a tad. Thanks for letting me bend your ear.

I’ll get off of my Fiscal Soapbox now, and get back to work so that I can continue to pay my “fair share” of taxes to the current Sheriff of Nottingham Timmy Gee, who then can voodoo finance our very professional “public servants” to continue to buy our votes by “giving” us “Entitlements” that we no longer have the money to pay for.

_______________

As I wrote before to you, Freep mail a warning to me and I’ll comply, as I am merely a guest on you Free Republic site, and hopefully will remain a welcome one.

Sincerely,
Graewoulf.

If it isn’t your calling to reach Mormons, fine. It is a rough ministry. Frankly, I get tired of getting death threats from Mormons, just for speaking the truth, quoting their leaders and the Bible - IOW, for defending Christianity

Some truce.

Damn, people! Give it a rest! We get the message! But the fact is that we cannot run a pure conservative and win against Obama; there’s too many idiot voters out there! (waiting for the obvious, childish response)

The elections in Greece and France should provide good warnings; as should California’s last election.

As for me, I will vote for the Republican.

reaganaut - not particularly aimed at you, but your post crystallized what I was thinking.

Was gonna stay out of this, but:

Judge not, that ye be not judged.
For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Christian charity exists for a reason. Because we cannot judge. Only God can do that. Are you God? Or even The Shadow?
Didn’t think so.
So you have zero idea of what is in the heart of any man, woman or child.

So lets judge a little less and accept that the Lord knows what he is doing a little more.

I don’t really care that much about how Romney behaved in Mass. with understandably left leaning influences.
Maybe I’ll even give him the benefit of the doubt, acknowledging they he had to work with Demorats.

My reason for being opposed to Romney is about his character. This primary season has revealed his true nature, ie the way one behaves when you think noone is watching.

He could have renounced the decidedly underhanded and unscrupulous actions of his PAC, Restore our Future.(and incidentally, what does this name mean? Sounds like something Bam and Co. would come up with).
But instead he said he wasn’t aware of what they were doing..as “they” quietly went about systematically destroying his opponents by vilification, distortions and outright lies.
Governor Romney: Excuse me, but you knew exactly what they were doing. Rather than make a case for what you stood for, for what you were going to do for our country if elected, you chose the only path you are comfortable with. Tear down the opposition so you were the only one left standing at the end. The illusion of power justifying control.
Target, focus, destroy. Sound familiar?

Mittens and his sidekick, the Rino GOP-E, have no problem with distorting the truth.They think that we sheeple will understand that it is a necessary measure for the ultimate goal of defeating Bam...and all in the name of “politics”.
They are trying to desensitize us to the concept of right vs wrong and take away our personal power to make choices for ourselves.
It’s group mentality at it’s worst and far removed from founding principles.

Mittens IS the mastermind here and he crafted the fragile foundation-less structure for his self serving,underhanded, unprofessional and unscrupulous campaign tactics because he knew that without them, he would not win.
It’s a house of cards, to say the least, capable of being toppled with one strong breath..the breath of freedom.

And that is why when I stand before God and my country on election day, I will not be voting for a man with NO HONOR.
And I will be able to sleep well that night.

That verse “judge not” is about not judging HYPOCRITICALLY, not not judging at all. Christians are called to judge false doctrine and teachings and warn of false prophets - which is exactly what we do.

If I condemned someone for adultery and was having an affair myself, then your comments to me would be justified. However, I am not judging hypocritically at all.

It is IMPOSSIBLE for a Mormon to have a personal relationship with Christ and remain a faithful Mormon. Why? Because Mormons to not believe, or teach, the Gospel of Grace. In fact they teach AGAINST a personal relationship with Christ. All ex-Mormons who have become Christians will tell you that they NEVER heard the Gospel of Grace until AFTER they left Mormonism. That is just a fact. It isn’t judging their heart, it is judging their teachings.

Mormons are spiritually blind and lost. Every one of them who still believes in it. I spend hours every single day weeping and praying for God to open their eyes.

I do what I do because God has called me to it and who are YOU to tell me not to do what God has called me to do?!?! You are judging my heart by claiming I don’t have charity. Now, that makes YOU judging me hypocritically, which is contrary to the verse you posted.

I thank God that more people didn’t have your attitude, or I would still be a member of that demonic cult and not have ever become a Christian. You may not agree with our methods, but they work, and most ex-Mormons will tell you they work. The Christians who were ‘nice’ to me when I was LDS, I had no respect for. The Christians who challenged me, made me angry enough to prove them wrong are the ones that reached me with the truth and got me to really examine the claims of Mormonism. They are the ones who loved me enough to tell me I was headed for Hell and PRAISE GOD they did.

So, back off and let me do what God has called me to do. I answer to him, not you.

Everyone needs to make the choice themself. You have looked at the man who has been foisted on the GOP and decided - no. I’ll not even argue with you, I respect you far too much for that. You get into the ballot box, it is you, the ballot and your conscience.

Sounds like you’ve had quite a personal journey. But last time I checked, this isn’t a “Christian conversion” board. So while you may post what you like, simply telling people to “back off” while you do your Lord’s work is in no way conducive to a forum where people can comment on whatever they wish. They might as well tell you to “back off.”

That you do. It is your duty and obligation to do so, and indeed should be your delight to do so. And yes, I believe you 100% about your praying for your ex brothers and sisters to see the light. In fact, I honor you for it. You have a duty before God and you do it.

I too speak as the Lord moves - and that set of verses is constantly in my thoughts. Because I am a person who cannot know the mind of another. I judge based on my own thought and not God’s will. He doesn’t often talk back to me directly, but when he does, I do what he says.

Your brethren challenged you to examine your beliefs and you came to Truth. That is both a pleasure and a joy to me, even though you are still a heretic in my book unless you are Catholic - and yes, that was a mild joke in bad taste.

The verse, however, says nothing of judging hypocritically. It simply states, whatever criteria you judge by you will be judged by.

It is one of the most clear and unambiguous verses in the bible.

You will be judged as you judge.

Beats me. Maybe for the same reason they get mad at us when we point out what God said in Scripture, as if it's our fault it's in there.

One cannot judge the condition of a person’s heart, but one can judge the teachings of a group by comparing them to Scripture as to whether they are true or false, that is do they line up with Scripture or not?

Mormonism does not.

For the record, I am not nor ever have been Mormon, nor do I have family members who are Mormon.

But I can read.

We have a religion section, which is where most of the discussion takes place. Because of Romney, the subject does cross over however.

This isn’t the only place I do this. This is actually a full time ministry for me now. It was a general statement.

Thanks EnglishCon.

What MAY restore some sanity to this formerly stellar site is for people to realize that we all have the power of personal choice. And it exercise it is our God given right.

Stating our opinions and why we came to believe in something is one thing. Trying to CONTROL, guilt, shame or change the minds of others is where we lose it.

What Christ are you talking about? Certainly not the Biblical Christ that called out false prophets and teachings.I am sure when the apostles were calling out false teachings and prophets Christ would have reprimanded them it were not welcomed. Oh yea as Christians we are commanded to call out false prophets and teachings, which if as you claim to be born again should already know this.
mormonism is not Christianity and people who call it out for what it is are not demonic.
People who through reason are not voting for that liberal called Romney are not demonic they are people who are tired of voting again for another liberal with a R by their name.
Romney is a liberal no different than BHO I will not vote for either one of them.

I agree, dear sister. I know you walk with Him and appreciate your insight, even though you walk a slightly different path from the one I take.

But I cannot and will not give up on anyone. That would be wrong. A spit in the eye for the One who granted me grace after backsliding, breaking commandments and cursing Him out about as vigorously as he has ever been cursed.

We have disputed a few times :)

Your opinion is rock solid as far as I am concerned. I may not agree, but I respect you too much to argue. You came to your conclusion through thought, reading and prayer.

That is enough for me.

Obligatory thing - you are still going to vote down ticket!

My doctrine is biblical. No issues there.
