From what I witness, read, hear and see, it could be argued that the modern day Republican Pro-Trump, professing believers, are hurting Christianity more than the Democratic Christians or even the adversarial unbelievers of the world. What do you think?

I believe that what was once a slam dunk in favor of Republicans is now a fifty / fifty proposition. Because today I don't see the Republicans having appreciable more integrity, honesty or morality than the Democrats do, and some might argue less.

The fundamental things that Christianity has from the beginning stood for was being Christlike, speaking the truth in love, having a certain integrity, obeying rule of law, and accepting the word as authoritative. That's all gone now in most Republican Christianity. It's not following Christianity anymore, that seems to be replaced by following your tribe, using situation ethics, ability to justify lies and blatant hypocrisy. Sometimes I feel like atheists have more integrity than some Christians. What has happened to the church to cause such an abandonment of Christian principles?

Let me say that though this thread is entitled Republican and Democrats and the cause of Christianity, I don't want this to be a political or tribal thread. We have plenty of that in the miscellaneous section. Just reasons why you think that there has been such a change in how Christians are acting and now seem to justify evil when it is to their benefit. Both sides. I know some Christians always have done this, but not on this massive scale I don't think. It kinda makes me think that some are right in saying the Prostitutes get into heaven before some professing believers.

Your honest thoughts on this?

I know what you mean spencer. It's close these days. But there is a decline in everything, not just Christian morality. I think it is because we are nearing the end of time.

Say someone who can’t answer the simple questions on other thread recently. Now that is really ridiculous that he is making such statement here instead.

Greetings Spencer~My personal conviction is that for a Christian to get heavily involved in the politics of this world hurts the cause of Christianity for very little good can come from that to honor the name of Jesus Christ. This world is NOT our home~ we are strangers and pilgrims herein and truly seek a better country than this sin-cursed world~ And we certainly do not trust the men of this world and look to them to bring us happiness, peace, and joy.

But to more accurately answer your question~ I would say for a Christian supporting the Democratic Party is a shame and disgrace knowing what they stand for. The lessor of the two evils is very clear to me...... it is the Republican party.
"And he shewed me a pure river of water, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb."~Revelation 22:1

In the world to come~there WILL BE "pure pleasures"~river/tree=all that is needed to sustain us Forever! Joy, peace, contentment in its fullest, etc.

> Do Republicans now hurt the cause of Christianity equal to the Democrats?

Yes, unquestionably. That's like asking do the Scribes hurt the cause of Christ more than the Pharisees? They equally hurt the cause of Christ because they are both adversaries to it. Any sin will send unbelievers to hell. So why haggle over which sinner has the worse sin? They are all destined for the same place unless they repent.

Spoken like a good Christian Red. The Democrats are devils who want to have open abortions, purge the country of white people, bring in socialist welfare and usher in the liberal world rule that will bring war and destruction to the world. The Republicans are the only thing standing between truth and the mainstream media war on honesty. The President speaks honestly without political correctness, and that's what liberals hate about him. I want to pass along some very important things that we Christians need to hear. In December of 2017, President Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

“He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

“Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

Visit http://WWW.BIBLEFREEDOM.COM to see proof for these things and why the Bible truly is the word of God!

If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

“EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

Close vote, closer than I would have thought. I think every Christian's vote should be yes. I for one am sick of the hypocrisy.

Too many maybe's on the poll for me. Grow a pair! You either believe it or you don't. I can't stand this modern inability to say or do anything about anything.

Biblical prophecy  ("Those who do not understand"....Red) tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).
(Mr. Johnson, the strikethrough and added words were done by me for emphasis~Red)

My friend this is HAPPENING NOW in the false churches of Mystery Babylon where both Republicans and many, many, many, more Democrats sits professing the name of Jesus Christ throughout this world which is one sector (false churches) of Mysterty Babylon!

Sir, the words in the quote box are being fulfilled NOW, just in a different sense in which MOST do not understand. Is that not the way bible prophecy has ALWAYS worked? There is nothing new under the sun.... truly was one of the many wise sayings of Solomon.
"And he shewed me a pure river of water, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb."~Revelation 22:1
