I saw someone say they were a "left aligned christian". What does that mean?
I've discussed this with a few liberals in the past and I belive it means they are pro-choice and do not consider homosexuality to be a sin. They base this in part on the fact that the Gospels (which were not written by Paul) are silent when it comes to abortion and homosexuality. Also they see Jesus as commanding us to be non-judgemental and the left leaning Christians believe the right-wingers are judgemental. Also they see right-wing Christians "cherry-picking" which old Jewish laws they wish to follow (see Leviticus)....
Well I don't know about left aligned christian frankly speaking but I feel like writing new hub on a topic "Left Right and Middle"
Hope you will read and comment on it. Love.
That could simply mean that they are wise enough to realize that the past G.O.P. administrations, though claiming to be "Christian," needlessly started wars with other nations in order to make profits for their corporate and lobbyist friends via reconstruction contracts, and oh, so much more!
You see, being a Christian precludes you from being a globalist, or a war mongering, profiteering, lying, thieving republican.
That is just something else that the world have come up with to promote their own agenda.
It means they've confused politics for religion. That happens a lot; deep-seated emotions win elections.
They believe in God but are also cool with Gay rights and having premarital sex.
It basically means they are of the Christian faith but their political beliefs lean to the liberal side. Christians have a reputation for being conservative thus right-oriented in the political spectrum. The impact from that is to say that they person embraces the teachings of the Bible yet is not against abortion or sexual preference issues. I remember an old term from the south called "Hard-Shelled Baptist" which I think was probably used in the same light to describe those who stuck with the teachings of the church to the letter of the law. In this case the person is acknowledging that they believe in a higher power but do not subscribe necessarily to positions traditionally taken by those of the Christian faith...a "Burger King Christian!"

Hi! I wrote an article for the first time in years and I can't seem to find the arrow left and right buttons that move a photo to the left (left-aligned) or right (right-aligned). I want to align the photo on the right so that the photo appears smaller. Thanks.

What does the New Testament say about divorce and remarriage? Is there any ambiguity in what Jesus and Paul said that might point to different interpretations? (Can Scripture have multiple interpretations, and, if so, who's right?)And further, why do divorce and remarriage get a relative pass from...

Christians claim God is Omniscient, does that mean God knew he was going to cause the Great Flood?Christians claim God is Omniscient and has a Plan for Everything; given that, does that mean God knew ahead of time man was going to fail and had a Plan already drawn up to destroy man, and animal-kind...
