I had a thought (yes, I know that's had to believe) today. Actually I had several. However, one kept coming back to me throughout the course of the day. With all the talk of the Tea Party and the Evangelical Christians swinging the vote to Newt in South Carolina and swinging the vote to Santorum in Iowa. Just what is a Christian? What do they believe in that other non-evangelical Americans do not. I was watching one of the talk shows the other day and the "talking head" said the Tea Party and the Evangelical Christians were willing to "roll the dice" on Newt and lose the 2012 elections to BHO. One thing for sure, I don't think Christians gamble so therefore the "talking head" doesn't understand Christians or he's talking out his.........
But really, who are the Tea Party and Evangelical Christians that are voting for Newt and also casting votes for Santorum? What makes them different and why? Finally, just what do they stand for?
I don't know if I would qualify as a formal Tea Partyer (is that a word?) or as an Evangelical Christian. I do know I was raised in a Christian (Lutheran) church. We left the Lutheran church several years ago when it became too liberal. I now attend Greencastle Bible Church, clik here for more info and recorded sermons. (Little advertisement for the good Pastor Flesher.) I just know what I believe in. I sum it up like this.
I believe in God, Guns and Family (pro life). You can add to that small government and a strong defense. My question to you and your friends is: If you consider yourself a Tea Partyer, or an Evangelical Christian or just plan Christian just what do you believe in? I would really like to know. If you would be so kind I would ask you to pass this around to your friends and see if they will answer. If I get enough responses I'll re-post this with everybody's thoughts.
