5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the First-born from the dead, the highest of earthly kings. He loves us and has washed away our sins with his blood,

6 and made us a Kingdom of Priests to serve his God and Father; to him, then, be glory and power for ever and ever. Amen.

7 Look, he is coming on the clouds; everyone will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the races of the earth will mourn over him. Indeed this shall be so. Amen.

8 'I am the Alpha and the Omega,' says the Lord God, who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.

You may be just the person to ask, and I ask this because I don’t spend much time at religious sites. Do religious sites have a problem with conservatives attempting to refocus those sites on politics?

You didn’t ask ME, so excuse me for butting in uninvited.

Maybe this thread can answer your question?

It’s not a hard question, just a simple yes or no would suffice. Do I really need to wade through a 600+ response thread? Help me out here.

Dude. The title and/or the first sentence should suffice.

Jim welcomes God here. As should YOU!

That was neither a “yes” nor a “no”. “Do conservatives take over religious sites?” was the original question (admittedly somewhat paraphrased), no matter how many times you choose to attempt to change the subject.

I’ll play along and say yes.

Why?

I have a really hard time believing that liberals can truly BE God-like.

Hey, at least we’re giving this guy a relatively high response thread for a change.

Can conservatives be non-God-like? This agnostic wants to know.

Thanks for answering. I was curious. I apologize for the damage done to the religious sites by my fellow conservatives.

On FR, there are numerous special interest threads that have nothing to do with politics. I often see cooking threads, home improvement threads, motor vehicle threads, travel threads, computer interest threads, movie and TV threads, music threads, celebrity watch threads, wildlife threads, photography threads, home brewing threads, and outer space threads, just to name a few.

Just curious = when you see any threads on the above topics, do you make similar inquiries about refocusing?

jesus4life - I like your threads and read them more often than not. Thanks.

You make a very good point. My personal preference would be that those threads be minimized as well. However...a thread about cooking or homebrewing etc deal with provable concepts. Christians and atheists both weigh in with unprovable concepts. You could find a representative zelot of numerous religions willing to die for their beliefs...at most, only one of them could be correct. Arguing unprovable concepts seems a waste of time (and bandwidth) to me. Believe what you want, but I find proselytizing offensive, hence my remarks. Hate me if you must, that’s just how I feel. (When discounting my views you should know that I was an altar boy back in the Latin mass days and even considered the priesthood during my grade school years and I have studied many religions in the years hence)

gorush,

Just curious as to what damage your fellow conservatives have done to the religious sites. Could you offer some specifics please?

Go back to the beginning of the thread and you’ll realize that I have no first hand knowledge from which I could possibly answer that question. Someone on this thread told me that conservatives takeover religious sites and refocus them on politics. I only said that I regretted that if it were true. I know I wouldn’t want the reverse to be true.

We argue unprovable concepts on FR all the time in the form of opinions and speculation. E.g., someone likes Sarah Palin, another person does not. Which one is correct? Someone grows tomatoes on a trellis, another grows them in cages. Which is correct?

If FR were confined to only threads where only provable concepts were discussed (actually there wouldn’t be any discussion if it was proven), it would be a pretty dry place.

I think people frequent FR and other forums to read different opinions and ideas, provable or not. By weighing a lot of different options, you develop your own world view and everyone’s is different because of their interest, knowledge, and experience.

There’s something for everyone and if religion threads don’t float your boat, you can just pass them by. It’s not possible to proselytize someone who is not interested in being proselytized.

There are plenty of threads that hold no interest whatsoever for me, and I just pass them by. But they may be topic number one for someone else and that’s great.

I believe that God inspires Jesus4Life to share his faith on FR. His efforts touch me and give me a boost when I need it. I know I’m not the only one.

Challenging a person does not imply hate.

If politics did not enter into using government law and power to dictate an amoral realm and respected religious freedom as intended by the constitution, religion would not enter into politics beyond the character measurement of individuals running for office according to each person’s own standards.

Alas, the two have been in a struggle since the radical rose up in the 60’s and there is now a struggle for dominance between Social Marxists/humanists/atheists and America’s founding Judeo Christian Western culture and philosphy. There will be no void and the two sides are very different in outcome for the well being and constitutional standing of the Republic. One created the ideals and nature of this Republic’s individual liberty and justice and the other produced the Soviet Union.

You are absolutely right. I suggest that it is our culture that has failed. The moral culture necessary to support our representative democracy has disintegrated and we will never retrieve it at the ballot box. I view myself as moral yet agnostic. Hence my displeasure with posts like this one... mindless, irrelevant, presumptuous, self-serving and arrogant. I could be wrong, however. That’s the agnostic in me. :{)

That disinegration did not happen by accident.

Now, about this post which you feel is infringing upon a political forum. Let’s just take one quote from the Bible listed above and see how it serves as a major foundation for justice is America’s Western foundation.

‘5 and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the First-born from the dead, the highest of earthly kings. He loves us and has washed away our sins with his blood,’

One of the most unique and lovely aspects of the American way of life used to be to let go of the past and move on. We did not encourage carrying tribal idenities and violent hatreds founded in the past in Europe. We forgave all that moved beyond European ethnic lines and history and became Americans. That healing was expected of us and each other. It is central to the Christian faith.

That attitude or philosphy came from the teachings of Jesus to understand that no one and no tribe is without offense or sin and forgiveness in the eyes of God and leaving it in the past and moving forward in peace and love, will set us free of offenses we have made and other have made agaisnt us and against God. This action of cleansing away sin and being released or healed to be new and better has a spiritual aspect of grace and mercy that extends through the life of Jesus to God and that might be harder for you to understand right now. And the process forgiveness is more complex than the overview I have shared with you here.

But if you can see how Christian forgiveness which came through Jesus once operated among the people and culture of America. Now look at what Marxists have established in the race hate and resentment industry to take it’s place and you might understand why religous philosphy is intertwined with political and social considerations.

Free Republic is pro-God. This thread is posted in the Religion Forum of Free Republic.

Just like liberals are trolls on Free Republic because it is a conservative forum, posters who are against Religion or Religious discussion/debate are trolls on the Religion Forum.

If you do not wish to see Religion Forum posts, do NOT use the "everything" option on the Free Republic browse option list. Instead, browse by "News/Activism." When you log back in, the browse will reset to "everything" - so be sure to set it back to "News/Activism."

Hands on experience is best in any case.
Goto religious sites and ask.
I don’t goto religious sites ask religious people that question, so I could not answer that for you. It would help to go yourself.

Grace and peace,

Yes. Everyone’s different. Every one will know before HE comes again.

But the ones that know and feel HIM must make a joyful noise; because the testimony of Jesus brings forth prophecy. As GOD’s spirit pushes forth ministry!! Amen!!

Numbers 11:25
And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that, when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

1 CORINTHIANS 2:10
But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

REVELATIONS 19:10
And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Love to all in the holy name of Jesus Christ who lives and reigns forever and ever!

GOD BLESS US ALL,

Jeaus4life
