Washed in the Blood of Jesus!

Posted on 02/03/2012 8:41:21 PM PST by One of the sons

You know what? I have been watching this blog for some time and this is my first post. I seem to see those who take the name Christian, but through their post they don’t seem to baring much good fruit. A lot of the posts are slanderous to say the least. Some condemn Romney others condemn Gingrich etc. People we as Christians need to get down on our knees and first and foremost ask our LORD to forgive us of our Backslidden sinful ways (sin is sin with no degrees). God is the Person who will put our next president in office.

If we unconditionally worship Him in a manner that is fitting to Him He just may look on this nation as He did Israel and Judah when the worshiped idols and fell away from Him. He just may punish this nation for ignoring Him. If we come to our senses and realize the God is in control He may just give this nation the leadership it needs. I mean putting THE LORD first above all else.

I am praying for God to put a true “Washed in the Blood Believer in office.

Just remember what Jesus said in John 15:16-17;

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 17 This is my command: Love each other.

You’re right on all counts. Too much anger and hostility directed at things we have zero control over.

God is in charge. Nations have been turned on prayer before and can be again.

Does the LDS believe that Jesus is the only true Son of God?

You’re not more Christian than the rest of us. This is a discussion forum and we have heated discussions sometimes and we have opinions.

Do you honestly believe God punished us with obama? I thought it was all of the votes that liberals bought.

No I am not “MORE” Christian than anyone. And how can one have a “HEATED DISCUSSION” if that person has the LOVE of Christ in their heart. 1st Corinthians 13:4-13

One duty of a Christian, is to save Christians from abandoning Christ for Mormonism, from being deceived by the anti-Christian cult.

Bishop Romney is well trained in and dedicated to that Mormon goal.

First, welcome.

Second, not everyone here us a Christian, although many are.

Thirdly, it is not a sin to be angry or to have a heated discussion. We are commanded not to son in our anger. Christ himself had a temper, as Scripture shows more than once.

We have had the most Christian and the most incompetent President ever, that being Carter. If there is any hint that you are supporting Mittens as the more Christian candidate, I think you, and Mittens are way off base. When I hire someone for a job, competency comes first, not the level of Christianity. Mittens is neither intellectually honest, nor consistent in his core platform. This is not a heated comment, not am I using caps to yell. Tolerance is a good thing, even if you disagree. This is a forum of ideas, not religion. BTW, as a Catholic, I believe in forgiveness and repentance. I am not questioning the other lead candidate's sincerity or his path to forgiveness. I am entitle to that belief and opinion, thank you. And that's why we're here at FR. God bless.

God did not punish us with Obama — we did it to ourselves.

Congress does not even have the b*lls to find out who he really is and is trying hard to sweep the whole affair under the rug.

Leave God out of it — He has been accused of too many wrongdoings throughout history.

Christ didn’t have a temper, he showed righteous indignation. Righteous indignation does not require temper, just overwhelming feeling in what you believe in.

And as the bible says as in the days of Noah so shall the days be when the Son of man shall appear. So it is only going to get worse not better. As a matter of fact it is going to get so bad the one may ask if Christ shall find any one of faith upon His return.

I would like to see what slanders have been made against the cult leader.

I would like to know why we should not condemn an anti-Christian cult leader who tries to trick and seduce Christians to abandon Christ.

I would like to know in the practical world we don't defeat him in a political race for President of the United States, if we don't jump in and participate, and overcome his attempts to win popularity among voters?

1 Corinthians 13:4-13

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

You know what?

So, with regards to Romney, what do you think is being posted that is slanderous?

What do you think is being posted that is not truthful?

You’re right on all counts. Too much anger and hostility directed at things we have zero control over.

And yet the bible is replete with examples of those speaking out about those who are actively sinning.

So, in your mind, when Romney lies about always being Pro-Life or purposely attempts to assasinate the character of Newt should we be quiet or do as commanded in the New Testament and rebuke sin?

Should we be quiet or continue to warn others of the danger of voting for a man who apparently has no conscience?

It would be interesting to read how you justify the following assertion:

"God is the Person who will put our next president in office."

I suspect you want to believe that, so why not show us scripturally why you believe that. And just for the record, I do not agree with such a blanket assertion; such a flat assertion has tagging along the unspoken insult of blaming God when a ruler is the enemy of the people, even when that people are not Israel.

Hi T, glad to see you are up from your nap. :)

Always fun to troll arrogant newbs. I thought about calling in Laz for the ‘baring good fruit’ comment (the mispelling).

I don’t know much about naked fruit...

Then I remembered that God came to Earth as a man, walked with us, and died a gruesome death... so that we would be polite to each other.

God is the ultimate power above everything. He has the final say.
He will place or allow whom he wishes to be a ruler/leader.
Didn’t he allow the Hebrews to be ruled by Nebuchadnezzar?
