What are Dr. Paul's religious convictions?

Dr. Paul is my favorite candidate and a real statesman as far as I can tell. One thing hindering my full fledged support for his candidacy, though, is the supremecy of my religious convictions over all others. While national liberty and prosperity are of utmost significance to me in this world, those things which relate to the eternal world are uncontested in their importance. Because the actions and dispositions of our national government themselves effect eternal matters, my full and active support for the national executive requires that he share my core religious convictions. I am certain there are many more like me who are or will be intensly interested in Dr. Paul's kind and degree of faith. I understand that his religious belief should not directly impact the routine execution of the office's responsibilities, but yet it will have great effect on his overall leadership. I wish Dr. Paul and his campaign would fully reveal his religious convictions- not to run on them, but just to be forthright about them.

Ron Paul's brother is a Pastor

I found this article about RP's brother, Donald Paul.

http://www.christiancentury.org/article.lasso?id=3818

Probably a very good article to circulate through the Christian community.

Thanks

Thanks for the link to Dr. Paul's statement of faith. I was already convinced that Dr. Paul was likely the candidate of greatest integrity and moral compass. I was already convinced that he was wisest among the cadidates with respect to matters of government and the most astute in regards to foreign policy. I was already convinced that he was the most knowledgable with respect to economics and the most understanding concerning the nature of liberty. Now I am hopeful that he is also a believer in Christ, my sibling in the Church, and a man influenced by the Word of truth and the Spirit of God. Under these circumstances I am now more able and eager to outspokenly support his candidacy.

cool

I took Ron Paul statement of faith and mass emailed it to all my friends. thanks

Ron Paul makes Thomas Jefferson look like Larry Flynt

I grew up in the church, a born again Christian. My time in the Middle East caused me to at least think about religion in a new way. The more I discovered the less I wanted to participate, in anything that could be construed as "organized religion" I kept my belief in god and renounced all religions created by man as immoral and hypocritical. I forbade my four children from attending church.

The Christian example of peace, compassion and virtue that is Ron Paul brought me and my whole family back to church...I haven't missed a Sunday since the debate where Giuliani called RP out. I have faith in abundance...restored. Ron Paul is one of the most kind, compassionate, honest and decent people that has ever walked this earth. If RP can have this sort of effect on someone like me imagine the effect that he could have on all people of all faiths. Ask yourself, who would Jesus vote for?

Didn't make me give up my athiest ways...

But he did convince me to change my position from pro-choice to pro-life...

The pro-life mvement has needed someone like him to actually convince people like me...

Religion is a personal affair.

I am actually very happy that Ron never brings it up. The type that are always bringing it up are usually the hypocritical type.

"Its time for a new Revolution! Ron Paul 2008"

"You don't gain much by being angry. I see this more as an intellectual, philosophical fight than a political, personality fight." - Ron Paul

could not have said it better

My religion is my personal biz and we have enough cleaning up the garbage we call a government without bringing God into it. Government is mans creation not God's.

"Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote."

Amen

Ron Paul for President!!I agree totally to that!

My Grandfather used say…

I am sixty one years old and can I still remember what my grandfather told me a long time ago… "I would rather see a sermon than hear one." By his every word and action, Ron Paul is a righteous man clean through to the marrow. He is the most honest, humble, principled and bravest man I have ever seen in my life. Now, Huckabee is your guy if you are looking for a preacher who gives lip service to how religious he is (BTW, he's also a CFR member) while calling for more war and bloodshed against innocent men, women and children who had nothing to do with 9/11. Know them by what they do, not what they say.

Dr. Paul is a born again Christian

Born again Christians are people who have asked the Lord to save them because they are sinners, which would keep them from going to Heaven. Jesus dies on the cross for all sinners and any who rpenet and believe on Him shall be saved. As link from Phily shows, Dr. Paul puts his trust in Jesus. What church he belongs to is not relevant to his salvation, nor to his political standing. Ronald Reagan was a born-again Christian, as are Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter. They all have made a public testimony of their salvation.

Having said that, you can see that born again Christians are like anyone else: we all have weaknesses because we are all sinners. Dr. Paul would much rather you think about your own salvation, than his religion. go to http://www.godssimpleplan.org/ if you are not sure if you would go to Heaven if you were to die today.

And now, having said that and answered someone's question with a thoughtful, loving answer, as instructed byt the Bible, a hope you will all think about this and not mock and ridicule.

Irrelevant

He is a strict follower of the Constitution. The Constitution protects our rights to worship, etc.

That said, if ever wanted to find a man that reflects the life and teachings of that carpenter from Nazareth, this is the man.

Dr. Paul is a very devoted

Dr. Paul is a very devoted non-denominational Christian. I cannot recall which church in Texas he belongs to, but he is involved. Of course we all know that he does not RUN ON HIS FAITH, but instead is quietly guided by it. He often quotes the life and acts of Jesus.

He is also THE ONLY CANDIDATE who has actually tried to do something that will actually end abortion. Dr. Ron Paul is the author of HR 1094 which defines life as beginning at the moment of conception. This legislation would of course grant babies the same rights and protections as the rest of us enjoy.

While others pay much lip service to those of us who are considered the "Christian right"...Dr. Paul demonstrates through action and deed. To me this is much more important than the NAME of his church..:)

Ron Paul 2012 - It's Almost Here!

Thanks, Pilby

That should take care of it as far I'm concerned. I think that if you want to go any deeper than that, it's only going to get divisive.

I can understand the underlying desire to have someone in office that shares all of your beliefs. I am a Mormon, and i was pretty excited when I found out Mitt Romney was running. But after comparing him to Dr. Paul, I would rather have a constitutionalist lead our country. No matter what your brand of faith is, the farther one strays from the constitution, the more all of our religions are in jeopardy!

You are not the only one

There are actually a few good sites run by LDS members who support Ron Paul. Probably the best is http://lds4ronpaul.blogspot.com/ also this site keeps an eye out for RP items of interest to church members http://ut4ronpaul.com/index.html
