Is Statism a Threat to Christianity?Submitted by lovvvveΩ™ on Tue, 11/01/2011 - 18:47
I recall hearing once that pastors and Christians in America did not advocate positions on political issues until the neocons convinced them that communism was a threat to their religion, therefore it must be stopped worldwide. This created the base of Christians supporting the neocons we see today. However, I think it is clear to some Christians, that the neocons have manipulated the teachings of Christ for their own benefit and will dispose of it when they are done using it to blind voters. Just like communism would wipe out religion, don't you think statism will do the same? If so how do we get this message to all Christians? I have heard of pastors speaking out against the Fed and big government, however, just like us they are labeled fringe. And just like us they should be the mainstream.
