I do agree - Chrisitans need to speak up on the issues - we need to go the poles and support and elect candidates that believe in our Christian values and will support those values in their elected position. This is no different than any other person who has their beliefs that they want all people to accept and live by.
God did not write the bible. So why am I going to let someone tell me what to do with my life and/or my beliefs. The bible was put together by men and then approved by the emperor Constatine. Not Jesus or God , but by men who had a political agenda.
To many of our pastor, don't want to hurt peoples feelings, they worry about numbers in church. We need to teach all of the Bible not just thing people want to hear! Our country is taking God out of everything, know wonder our young people are they way they are!
