Evangelical Talking PointsSubmitted by valhallaviking on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 12:45
Simply put, you can't legislate people into heaven.
Christianity is based on free will. We are given choices, you either make ethical ones or you don't. You choose to believe or you don't.
Legislating away the bad choices doesn't make a person more Christian. Jesus didn't tell people to go out and sanitize the world...using force to make others sinless.
Is a person who lived their whole life in a padded cell with no contact with the outside world the perfect Christian because they never "sinned?"
