If Christians want this to be a Christian nation...

 Then why all the hypocrisy? The Christian behavior some people portray is what turns alot of people away from the religion..why doesn't the Christians practice what they preach?

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,

It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

*If there is a poor man among your brothers in any of the towns of the land that the LORD your God is giving you, do not be hardhearted or tightfisted toward your poor brother.* 

“If your brother becomes poor and cannot maintain himself with you, you shall support him as though he were a stranger and a sojourner, and he shall live with you.*

*If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion--how can God's love be in that person?*

If you exploit them in any way and they cry out to me, then I will certainly hear their cry.

 Just because you read the bible and bow your head to pray doesn't mean your being obedient..

You're absolutely right!  Jesus even said, "By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them."

"Many will come to Me on that day saying, 'Lord, Lord,' and I will say, 'Depart from Me for I never knew you.'  Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'"

He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.  "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?'

"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.'

"Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.'

"They also will answer, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?'

"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.'

"Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

There will be people on the day of judgment who are expecting to go to heaven, yet instead of inheriting the kingdom, they will hear those saddening words of Christ.

Within the Body of Christ, there are many that have the “form” of Godliness, but have denied the power thereof.  One’s outward “counterfeit” appearance is unimportant compared to one’s INTENT of the heart.  What is unseen is far more important than what is visibly seen as they Lord knows the heart of every man, thus NOTHING is hidden from Him.  While many are able to deceive others through trickery, NONE is able to deceive the Lord.

Preach on sistah! lol

I'm not even Christian, but to be perfectly honest (and not nearly as arrogant is this may sound) I behave a lot better than most Christians I know.

If LIBERALS don't believe in war and want peace because of murder......why do they believe in killing a child through abortion?

God creates life, he gives us free will to do with it what we please.  Thou shall not murder.  Abortion is murder.  The free will was used to go against the 10 comandments which ARE in the bible.

 I was always taught that the Rights given to us belonged to All of us, not just a select few. As a non-christian and a left leaning moderate the idea of this country I honor and support and love becoming a theocracy scares the baaa-geee-bers out of me.

Dh and I were talking about this last night, it is all hunky dorry so long as you think like them, talk like them, act like them and basicly are them. This was after another round of "your an idiot" from his uber conservative, Palin worshiping sister.
