    The Democratic platform is pro-Abortion, so how are their any Christian Democrats?

    How can people who claim to be Christian condone murdering babies?  Won't your God judge you for standing by while his children are murdered?  Does you faith come before your politics or vice versa?   Seems very hypocritical.

    I used to be a Christian Democrat.  That was before my walk with Jesus strengthened.  At the time, I was really for woman's rights.  I did not think about the baby.  I guess you could say I cherry picked at my religion.  However, when your knowledge of God grows deeper, you begin to love the things He loves and hate the things He hates.  I truly believe the Holy Spirit guided me to realize that abortion is wrong. 

    I am not going to say that any Christian who is pro-choice is not a real Christian, they may just not have really sat down and thought about what it means to abort a baby.

    It is tiresome to point this sort of thing out continually, but obviously no one, including the Democratic platform, is pro-abortion. This is simply a cheap strawman, as you know (and do anyway).

    To the question, maybe because not everyone has a simple mind. If we want to be simple-minded we could similarly say that the Republican platform is pro-war and pro-conflict, so how are there any Christian Republicans (which actually isn't a terrible question). How exactly do they square their faith with the huge pile of dead babies over in the Middle East? Also seems hypocritical, no?

    Those of us not burdened by small thoughts, however, will understand that few, if any issues, are black and white, but rather involve a multitude of competing ethical concerns. A women's right to be sovereign over her own body (and not have her body ruled by others) is a worthy ethical concern. So too is the concern that making abortions illegal will push women to dangerous back-alley providers. Not to mention it is morally right simply to fight back against some of the cavemen on the opposing side and their archaic notions of sex, love, desire, etc. Actually, I don't think it is that hard at all to be a pro-choice Christian, which would seem to be supported by the millions of them who exist.

    I never understood why abortion on demand is supported by most democrats. When the Supreme court ruled in 1973, it was suppose to be rare and use as the last resort to end unwanted pregnancy. Yet in 2016, with the availability of the day after pill and all kinds of contraception and sex ed, why do we have abortion in the last trimester and late term abortion. The argument presented is that it is the women's choice what she does with her body. Does she have to wait till nearly 9 month to decide to end a viable life? Someone please help me on this...

      Ralph has brought up here the subject of the exact time a fetus becomes a person. Christians traditionally site conception as the beginning of life. Take your Bible and prove that point. Keep in mind, conception has a distinct, medical definition.

  5. tsadjatko profile image59
    tsadjatkoposted 2 years ago

    https://usercontent1.hubstatic.com/12961434_f260.jpg

    This Q&A begs the question: Can a person be a Christian but not practice Christianity?

    The answer to that question has to be yes since to be a Christian you must first repent from your sins and accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your savior because he has paid the price for your sinful life, a price you cannot pay.

    Once you have accepted Christ it does not mean that you will no longer sin, or no longer be tempted by sin, that you will only do God's will or that you are free from error about what His will is as expressed by Him in His Holy Bible. So being a Christian doesn't necessarily mean if you do any of these things you are not a Christian. That is not for us to judge as only God knows a person's heart, his motivations and whether he has truly repented from sin and accepted Christ.

    Mankinds, man's, laws are not the final word on life, when it begins and whether a fetus is a person or not. They are man made in this case by a court of unelected judges, not even reflecting the will of the people, but no matter what their laws are they are not above God's laws, no matter how you look at it.

    So what is God's opinion? The Bible clearly prohibits the killing of innocent people (Exodus 20:13). All that is necessary to prove a biblical prohibition of abortion is to demonstrate that the Bible considers the unborn to be human beings. If you honestly want to know what the Bible really says about the topic of abortion you can go to this website and you will see there is no doubt the Bible considers the unborn to be human beings. http://www.christiananswers.net/q-eden/ … bible.html

    So in conclusion, abortion IS premeditated murder of an innocent human being but if you have accepted Christ as your savior and repented from sin yet don't see "that truth" you still may be a Christian because you have a human heart which the Bible says, no man can know it, only God.

    But, on the other hand, Ralph, when you throw the word Democrats into the mix, I have to admit that it is very hard to understand how or why any Christian would want their name associated with such an ungodly group led by known pathological liars, the sexually immoral and race baiting manipulators. (and that's being nice)

    If as a Christian you see "that truth," that the Bible considers the unborn to be human beings, is the truth but still want to reject it, you need to get on your knees and pray to God to cleanse your heart and renew your your mind. The only one who can truly understand you is THE ONE who made you.

    It is not just abortion that makes the Democrats the anti-Christians. Christian Liberals?Christianity and Liberalism are fundamentally conflicting worldviews. Liberal morality requires the denial of Christian morality. These opposing worldviews do not agree about the way the world is, what human beings are, and how to define human good. What are grave moral violations to a Christian are celebrated behaviors to a Liberal. Liberalism rejects Christianity and can be most easily defined as ‘liberation from Christian morality.’

    Liberalism is in fact a religion—a religion in direct contradiction with the Christian Faith. Liberals have worked for decades to remove Christianity from the public square entirely. Liberal morality is reduced to claims of ‘rights,’ which are merely proclamations of individual desires.  “This feels good” becomes “I want” becomes “I have a right to.” Liberalism embraces a program of unlimited hedonism, specifically free from the confines of Christian morality. Practices considered sinful by Christianity are glorified by Liberals.

    Liberalism is generally scientism and materialism, rejecting miracles, resurrection, hell, demons, Satan, and any claim of doctrinal truth—rejecting the supernatural. Liberalism believes in a godless cosmos where we are to worship Man. It has worked for decades to disestablish the Christian Faith and establish the Liberal worldview in its place. It has steadily worked to undermine religion, to divest religious organizations of public authority, and disabuse believers of their faith in Jesus. There is no one more hostile to God and the Bible than Liberal apostles of secularization.

    Freedom from Christianity defines the political goals of Liberalism. It strives to eliminate all Christian moral boundaries, championing freedom from all sexual limits and freedom from any sense of guilt or shame from sin, any sense of moral propriety. Liberalism can be defined as rebellion against Christianity, characterized by a vehement desire to be free from Christianity, a desire to remove the Church and replace it with the State. The real goal of Liberalism is to replace Christianity with a state religion of pagan humanism, to establish Liberalism as the defining worldview for all of society—and to brook no dissent. Liberals are at war with Christ- and therefore at war with normality and at war with reality.
