What is our obligation as Christians
« on: December 19, 2011, 08:21:37 AM »
As Christians how far should we go in seeking our legislators to pass laws that are based strictly on what we feel are moral issues? In other words should we seek laws limiting someone's activities that have no direct effect on others, but are personal choices? For instance should we seek what are called blue laws? Laws that shut down most business on Sunday or have them all appealed? How about laws that make it illegal to use drugs or should we let each decide if or what they use while only restricting what they do while taking them such as driving? It is legal for people to drink and even get drunk as long as they do it privately so why not the taking of drugs and getting high?
How about homosexuality as that is a personal choice that effects no one but the two involved? How about them marrying? It used to be illegal and the church was the reason why and people went to prison for doing it. Now it is not. Should we seek to make that illegal again. Or how about prostitution? Should that be made legal as it is an agreement between two consenting adults? How about having multiple husbands or wives? Should we seek to repeal those laws that stop it or seek to keep them? Why isn’t that a personal choice as it causes no harm to others so should it be legal? Or how about dog fighting or fighting chickens? How about suicide? That is a person's choice so should that be legalized? Why or why not?
As Christians in a society where we are the government along with every other citizen should we seek to impose our moral values on others through legislation/laws who are not Christians or allow them to live as they see fit as long as their activities have no direct influence on another or might cause physical harm or death to another? What do you think God expects of us as Christians who live under this form of government as how we are to seek our legislators in the making of laws? Take each one of those mentioned and give an answer as to why it should or should not be legal based on a free society and the church not being under law.
Isaiah 48:18,Oh that you had paid attention to my commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.

Religious Lie: "God only paid for sins until the next time you sin."
Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
