But it's still a sin to vote for McCain?  Just a minor sin?

What do you think, doc?

You're the major expert on sin around here.

Well you had no problem putting it in my quote.

I see it differently.


Obviously,

Questions: What is your opinion of the founding fathers, and do you think they went to God for guidance?

I am?  Why would you say that?

I don't think it's a sin to vote for either McCain or Obama.  Why would you think so?  Because of Obama's stance on Obama?  Why is it a sin to vote for McCain?

If it was a sin to vote for either candidate, then a conscientious Christian would have to find someone else to vote for or not vote.

You claim to know precisely what sin is.

If you mean abortion, yes. It's a sin to vote for abortionists.

Quote:

Depends whether he has repented of his sins or not.

That's right. Better to vote for a concientious Christian like Huckabee than to vote for a secular hypocrite.

There are people who could precisely tell you
what a lot of things are. But that doesn’t necessarily
make them an expert on them.

I do?  Care to quote me?

Yes, I meant abortion.  Thanks for catching that.

Ah.  So our "goodness" is dependent upon our repentance of individual actions?  I'm not sure that's theologically sound.

What about a secular candidate who's not a hypocrite?  Would that be preferable to a hypocritical Christian?

... he's the son of a Muslim, and that makes him Muslim, according to Islam, and he claims to be Christian, never having discussed the process as it occurred to him.


i've never heard that before.  do you have a proof-text from Islamic Scripture?

i only ask because from my understanding, based on speaking to Muslims, a Muslim decides upon coming of age whether or not he or she wants to be a strict adherent.  i don't think Muslims consider themselves born into it... maybe moderates do, or maybe some do in the same way that people born into Christian families consider themselves Christians.

second, according to the teachings of Jesus that doesn't make Him a Muslim.  so why would he have to defend it to you.  doesn't Jesus defend him already?
