Remember why we discuss and debate! All we have to lose are the errrors we hold, and what we have to gain is the very Truth of God! There is nothing but shame to be gained by willfully holding to false opinions!
-----------------------------------------------
This quote is about finding truth. It's Great! The pictures are about labels. I like to think of myself as republican, protestant and fundamentalist. The problem with this is that there are things under each label that I do not agree with. The danger, I think these labels make a person fearful of being as honest as possible for fear he will fall under a different label; like you know, the dreaded...Liberal. I understand that G.K. Chesterson said, "The only thought that shouldn't be thought is the thought that stops thought." I remember as a young pastor, who of course knew everything, saying to one of my freinds that his oppinion was legalistic. He replied, "I'd rather be legalistic than liberal." I hope you see where I'm coming from, I could just be rambling. revdcbhttp://alongtheroadtoemmaus.com

Very well stated revdcb! :thumb:

Thank you for the important reminder of the dangers of labels. I agree wholeheartedly. I do not consider myself to be republican, democrat, conservative or liberal. I think the marriage between Christianity and right-wing politics is a travesty. But that doesn't stop me from having and expressing political opinions. I believe the image I posted carries some truth but also could be misleading if taken as the "final word" on the topic. It certainly was not meant as such. I posted it because it was funny and it conveyed one of my primary concerns about Obama - he doesn't have much "real world" experience as a "doer" (i.e. executive). His primary experience was in the legislature and now he is acting like the "legislator in chief" focusing on passing huge laws that affect all our lives (e.g. health care and cap and trade).

ETA - Oops. I thought you were talking about this site. I haven't explored the site you linked so I don't know what I think of it yet. I'll take a quick look and get back to you.

Great! That means we do have at least two things in common! :D

And after looking at your site, I see we have much more than that. I am glad I could give you a little free advertising to share you living faith with the world.
