Evangelicals: Mitt Romney hit right note
Politico ^ | 5/12/2012 | Ginger Gibson

Posted on 05/12/2012 3:38:57 PM PDT by svxdave

LYNCHBURG, Va. — Evangelical leaders praised Mitt Romney’s speech today at Liberty University, saying that the Mormon candidate was right to acknowledge his religious differences with other Christian voters.

“It was an acknowledgment that the issues that social conservatives and evangelicals care about are important issues to Gov. Romney and as he sees them [as] part of a successful economic platform for the country,” said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins.

Perkins added that there wasn’t anything the presumptive GOP presidential nominee — who many evangelical voters regarded with skepticism during the primary while backing Rick Santorum — should have done differently. And he pointed to the huge opportunity created for Romney by President Barack Obama’s endorsement of same-sex marriage this week (Romney opposes gay marriage).

“I think he touched on the key issues that are important to social conservatives. He mentioned Rick Santorum and Rick’s emphasis and the need to have the family and the ties to economic success.” (See also: 10 essential facts about Liberty U.)

Regarding Romney’s acknowledgement that Mormonism differs from other Christian faiths in certain ways, Perkins said the candidate was correct to tackle the issue.

“That was what he needed to do, was to acknowledge that there are theological differences between him and evangelicals,” Perkins said.

Actually, I haven't liked any kind of yam. I guess I haven't tried a rogue one yet. What color are they?

I watched the speech live today. Romney was at the top of his game and more passionate than I have ever seen him.

The most passionate that I have ever seen Mitt Romney was when he was pushing abortion, you should see him here, he explodes with passion.

Maybe, in your opinion. Certainly, though, he is far to the right of Brarack Obama.

The yams I use in my Thanksgiving Yam dish are a peach color and with a brown sugar and pecan mixture added taste quite delicious— almost sweet enough to be called a desert.

But a rogue yam, that’s something I like just because of the two words put together. I don’t think I could ever eat one. Especially because the one hanging out on this board has some pretty good posts!

Well RA, since so many people here want to slam on you for pointing out a simple truth, I feel compelled to back you up.

Words mean things. The word “Christian” means “Of Christ”. The Bible is the book that Christians follow as the word of God. A Christian is a believer in the Bible. A Christian, by definition does not put the Book of Mormon, War and Peace or any other literary work at the forefront of their belief.

General comment: If anyone wants to address these issues without resorting to the leftist charge of “Bigotry”, lets have that conversation. But do not insult the intelligence of any thinking person by saying a group of people who follow an interpretation of Christianity at odds with the teachings of the Bible are “Christian”.

That’s not a statement of bigotry. It’s a fact.

Further, I find it pathetic that people perfectly comfortable with slamming Obama, Romney et all for living in fantasyland and rewriting history are seemingly comfortable with rewriting what Christianity itself “IS”. At no point in the Bible, the very basis of Christianity, does it say that we become Gods. A Christian cannot by definition believe in, much less ‘become’ any such God.

Romney gave a great speech today that was both eloquent and profound. I am sure he drew upon his experience as a missionary. I have no doubt that he has a moral compass and is a decent person unlike the person now in the WH.

Text of Romney's speech AT LIBERTY

An excerpt:

"Today, thanks to what you have gained here, you leave Liberty with conviction and confidence as your armor. You know what you believe. You know who you are. And you know Whom you will serve. Not all colleges instill that kind of confidence, but it will be among the most prized qualities from your education here. Moral certainty, clear standards, and a commitment to spiritual ideals will set you apart in a world that searches for meaning.

That said, your values will not always be the object of public admiration. In fact, the more you live by your beliefs, the more you will endure the censure of the world. Christianity is not the faith of the complacent, the comfortable or of the timid. It demands and creates heroic souls like Wesley, Wilberforce, Bonhoeffer, John Paul the Second, and Billy Graham. Each showed, in their own way, the relentless and powerful influence of the message of Jesus Christ. May that be your guide.

You enter a world with civilizations and economies that are far from equal. Harvard historian David Landes devoted his lifelong study to understanding why some civilizations rise, and why others falter. His conclusion: Culture makes all the difference. Not natural resources, not geography, but what people believe and value. Central to America’s rise to global leadership is our Judeo-Christian tradition, with its vision of the goodness and possibilities of every life.

The American culture promotes personal responsibility, the dignity of work, the value of education, the merit of service, devotion to a purpose greater than self, and, at the foundation, the pre-eminence of the family.

The power of these values is evidenced by a Brookings Institution study that Senator Rick Santorum brought to my attention. For those who graduate from high school, get a full-time job, and marry before they have their first child, the probability that they will be poor is 2%. But, if those things are absent, 76% will be poor. Culture matters.

As fundamental as these principles are, they may become topics of democratic debate. So it is today with the enduring institution of marriage. Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman.

The protection of religious freedom has also become a matter of debate. It strikes me as odd that the free exercise of religious faith is sometimes treated as a problem, something America is stuck with instead of blessed with. Perhaps religious conscience upsets the designs of those who feel that the highest wisdom and authority comes from government.

But from the beginning, this nation trusted in God, not man. Religious liberty is the first freedom in our Constitution. And whether the cause is justice for the persecuted, compassion for the needy and the sick, or mercy for the child waiting to be born, there is no greater force for good in the nation than Christian conscience in action."

Mitt Romney points out that despite the fact that we are a nation of many faiths, we are bound together as a nation through Christian service

People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology. Surely the answer is that we can meet in service, in shared moral convictions about our nation stemming from a common worldview.

Sure. No problem there. But that’s not my point. Heck, he’s even admitting he’s of a different faith. He, as a Mormon, is saying to a Christian audience “People of different faiths, like yours and mine,”.

I’m not saying Mormons are some vile, evil thing. Nor do I dislike them. They are free to believe as they will and I’m 100% fine with that. I’m saying that they are not Christian by the definition of the term. That’s all. Mitt seems to agree.

Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter were more conservative as governors.

That's a fair point. It's also a fair point that it is more natural to govern as a somewhat conservative Dimocrat in Georgia or Arkansas than as a Republican in Massachusetts, however moderate he may be.

Our goals are ejecting Obama from the White House, keeping the House and booting Reed out of the Leader office. I am heartened by the reviews of Romney's speech before the evangelicals. This was a major test.

Here is a photo from when Romney was a fund raiser for Planned Parenthood.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Many, many years ago, I had a dear, close family relative that was very close to me who passed away from an illegal abortion. It is since that time that my mother and my family have been committed to the belief that we can believe as we want, but we will not force our beliefs on others on that matter. And you will not see me wavering on that.”

So, you are a Catholic? A lot of Christians don’t consider the Catholic church Christian either. I guess it is whose proclamation you get out? It seems to me Christ is the only arbiter. So, I would just be careful.

But I’m not judging. Judgement requires opinion. It’s not my opinion that Mormons are not Christian. Mormons are Mormons because they follow Mormonism. Christians are Christians because they follow Christ/the Bible. These are two different things. Opinion or judgement play no role.

Mormonism and Christianity are not the same. The theology differs, the history differs, the beliefs differ. My favorite Lincoln quote sums it up...”How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Answer, “4”. Calling a tail a leg does not make it one”.

So Christians have to accept Hinduism and Scientology as Christian religions, all religions and cults are Christian, or at least so, if they want to claim it?

You don’t accept the Catholic church, the Baptists, the Methodists, the Greek Orthodox, the Lutherans, and so on when they all agree that Mormonism is not a Christian religion?

The ignorance of the LDS church is apparent here. Romney, even if he were called to be an Apostle would have at least 14 people ahead of him (and several younger than 65). I do not think “candidate” is a position. However, there was one Apostle than was Secretary of Agriculture which was a government position. Romney is not now a Bishop, although he has been one nor is he a Stake President, although he has been one.

Thanks. But, I don't worry what a bunch of people who refuse to read and understand nonbelievers. It is the same with Muslins. They don't believe, yet some here will hammer that yet believe Mormons are Christians. I don't care what they think. I know what God's Word says and Mormons do not follow God's Word. If some here want to be smart rear ends over it, I don't care. They make smart rear end remarks, but it does not bother me. I know what the Bible says. I don't spend 2 to 3 hours per day in it and no know what it says. I know what Mormons believe and they do not believe in Jesus Christ. If some here think that is incorrect, it is their problem. I wish all would come to Christ. I pray for all of them, Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, Muslins, all of them. They are cults and they are totally lost. That simple. The Book says so, not me. I simply repeat what God's Word tells us and Mormons do not follow the same Bible that I read. They made up their own book. My Bible says there will be scoffers in the end times. These are the scoffers. Have a great day.

This is simple. There is no Book of Mormon in any accepted branch of Christian belief. No other branch of Christian belief has anything comparable. An Eastern Orthadox and a Southern Baptist share core beliefs. They both follow the Bible. A Roman Catholic and a churchless man at home with a Bible share core beliefs though they may differ on the need for Sunday mass.

But a Mormon believes a core doctrine different from all those. That is not debatable. He places the Book of Mormon in the pathway of Biblical teaching. That too is not debatable.

You cannot believe something in opposition to something else and call yourself both. That is insanity. Or lying to one’s self.

But you are passing judgment on those of us who ARE Qualified to judge whether or not Mormonism is or is not Christian. Mormonism is no more Christian than Islam is Christian. One cannot be a Muslim and a Christian. Likewise one cannot be a Mormon and be a Christian.

I am qualified to make that Judgment because I was born and raised a Mormon and I have since left the Mormon Church and I later became a Christian.

Mormonism is not Christian.

You are not qualified to judge me for saying so. Since you are clearly admitting that you are not qualified to make the judgment, I'd suggest that you stop judging those of us who are.

The Book of Mormon was not given to other groups. So, what is your point? It is available for reading and study, but I doubt whole religions in mass will adopt it. We don’t anticipate that happening and by the way we use the King James Bible, so what bible did you think we were reading and following? We worship the risen Christ of the Bible. At least,that seems to be the only Bible I see in church, if fact when I was a protestant I used that Bible.

You either are ignorant of, or willfully intent to accept the fact that in Christianity/the Bible, You have God, and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. There are no men becoming Gods. There are no planets for us to rule.

Do you deny that? You can, but there is no point. The Book of Mormon teaches things in opposition to the Bible. The Mormon faith possesses a different core doctrine than Christianity. That’s a fact. I am sorry you choose to ignore that. You can call them the same until you turn blue but that’s not my problem. They are not. The facts, easily shown by a direct comparison between the teachings of the Bible and those of the BOM prove beyond doubt that they are not.

Believe whatever you like. Your soul, your business. Be a happy member of your faith. But that’s your faith. It is different from mine. That’s just the way it is. If you want to be a Christian, then follow the teachings of Christianity. Until that time, Peace be with you.
