...especially when used to paint a whole group of people with a particular color they do not want to be painted!
Your title gives away the fact that you are either ignorant or foolish (almost the same), but either way, definitely unjust.
There are many Daily Paul followers who think they are Christians, claim to be Christians or really are Christians. And those three categories cover a lot of people so why in the world would you even post such a topic?
It is certainly counterproductive to what the Daily Paul is all about.
You are either ignorant of that fact or you know it and are being very foolish in stirring up unnecessary division. Either way you are unjust, both to the Christians, and to those who you claim to want to win or convert.
You would make a very good politician in today's de facto corporate government, because they always use class warfare to divide. You would also make a good troll.
Somehow I actually think you might be sincere and new to the patriot movement and just don't get the principle of liberty of conscience. It only makes sense to me that all good Christians believe in liberty of conscience because God does. He is the Author of Liberty and has given each of us free will. He even gives His adversary (Satan) plenty of rope to tempt us as a test of our intelligence and faith in His Word.
When he comes up with a really good deception, we are the ones responsible for not seeing through it because God has given all of us access to the knowledge we need to make right decisions. But most people do what they want to do and Satn has been pretty successful at creating desires or emphasizing natural desires to such a degree that we choose our will over God's most of the time. But that's on us.
So, why would you make all Christians look bad by asking such a stupid, divisive question?
You just painted me with a color I despise. Shame on you. Get rid of your brush and wake up to liberty.
Liberty is not the same as freedom. Freedom is the domain of the free. Freedom is the ability to do what you WANT to do. Liberty is the ability to use your freedom to do what you OUGHT to do. The Bible says, "Where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty." (2 Corinthians 3:17) That's why liberty is the ability to do what you OUGHT to do because the Spirit of God will lead people to do what they ought to do - what is right. Our human nature is the source of all our wants, which is usually selfish and sometimes quite destructive to others and eventually ourselves.
So wake up to liberty and quit painting other people with your selfish brush.
If you can't change someone who is wrong, you can at least love them before they destroy themselves. That's why Jesus was a friend of sinners - He loved them. Most Christians do not represent Him well, they are just the opposite. The only people Jesus was rough with were the phoney-baloney Pharisees - the religious crowd!
Read Matthew 23 and see. That's why I am being straight forward with you. You arte either ignorant or foolish and for sure unjust.
An apology would be a good idea.
Freedom is the ability to do what you want to do.
Liberty is the ability to do what you ought to do.
"Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Corinthians 3:17
