Today is voting day. Al Mohler says Christians must exercise their civic duty. Brittany Maynard's death leads to legislating. And a visit to the land of the holy goats.

    In Nepal they practice buddhism and hinduism because they don’t want to
    follow Jesus/the Bible/Truth so they fell for the lie that the Bible talks about
    in 2 Thessalonians which is the great deception. People get fooled cause
    they denied the Truth. Man shall perish because of their lack of knowledge
    and we now see it everywhere today. Many so called “Christians” still don’t
    know what the Bible says. Ephesians 5:18 says don’t get drunk and also
    in 1 Corinthians 6:10 it says that all drunkards go to hell. The wine that
    Jesus made was new wine/diluted/made for symbolic reasons not to get
    drunk plus the Bible says don’t get drunk with wine for it’s debauchery so
    the people who still get drunk on strong wine are also wrong and go to hell.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-12 lists swindlers,thieves,adulterers,drunkards,idolaters,
    greedy coveters,slanderers/gossips/liars,the sexually immoral and all the
    practicing homosexuals as those who will not inherit the kingdom of heaven
    unless they Repent. All sins are bad not just gay marriage and/or abortion.
    Gambling,pride,jealousy,being mean/sharp tongues,takin the Lords name
    in vain are also wrong! Bible says Repent or perish! We all must Repent!

    Here is Brittany’s legacy, courtesy of Dr. Michael Egnor:

    “Her death is tragic, not only because of her incurable tumor (which was not the medical cause of her death), but because she committed suicide, and because the medical profession and the government of Oregon helped her kill herself, and because her suicide implicitly devalues not only her life but the lives of thousands of Americans with terminal illnesses.”

    It would help if more Christians voted for Christian
    running for offices that held to Christian principals .

    Karla, the whole Jesus-sacrifice-sin-salvation story that you keep trying to sell here is a steaming pile of bull output. How is it again that your omnipotent being couldn’t do his saving bit without the whole silly Jesus hoopla? And how was Jesus’ death a “sacrifice”, when an omnipotent being could just pop up a replacement son any time with less than a snap of his fingers?

    Pretty pathetic “god” and god myth that you’ve made for yourself there.

    Ask the questions. Break the chains. Join the movement.
    Be free of Christianity and other superstitions.

    Perhaps, but a more interesting discussion would involved identifying and implementing those Christian principles. Some Christians principles, so defined, I would want nothing to do with, and I say that as a Christian. The bigger issue here has to do with the First Amendment, which prohibits Congress from establishing a religion.

  • JasonGibbs

    “In case you were thinking of not voting today, just know that Al Mohler will consider it a crime against God and Christendom. He wrote on his Facebook page: ‘Failure to vote is a failure of Christian conviction and a failure of Christian stewardship.'”

    This excerpt demonstrates what is wrong with RNS’s Daily Roundup. In its attempts to be hip, it regularly caricatures US religious conservatives as theocrats. Mohler’s statement did not speak of crimes or criminalization, but of failure. I would expect this type of sloppy reporting with Sarah Posner or Patricia Miller, but RNS’s moves in this direction are a decline from the standards Dave Anderson set.

    Unnoticed? Students (& especially their alumni) from this school are noticed. In Boston’s collegiate-world, Gordon has a reputation as a college—both respectful and intellectual—on topics that naturally provoke religious discourse. So much so, that the school breaks through stereotypes of what it can mean to be both a College and Christian. “Unnoticed UNTIL. . .” (to me) isn’t the news, so read the AP article to learn details of this religion headline.

    In your email headline, it says “Mohler’s Threat” but in the website, it changes to “Mohler’s Rebuke.”

    And the story, as often is the case, it is neither. He neither threatens or rebukes. He challenges and shares his conviction, but holds out the serious nature of our civic responsibilities.

    I hope Lauren Markoe would take greater care in what she writes.


    Finally the Watchtower organization is getting the same exposure they condemned the Catholic Church for getting…………exposure of sexual abuse inside the membership. So many innocent ones abused, and no voice to speak out. It is my hope more and more Jehovah’s Witness victims come out and tell their story………….there are thousands of stories to be told.

    Oh, no! Since the 4th century we thought they were saying and writing “Holy Ghost!”
