By looking at the results from Tuesday's election I want to pose a question that has dogged me for a long time.
It is obvious that Christians can disagree with many things within the church. I believe there are folks that believe in tongues, infant baptism, and other various issues that I don't agree with but are saved. I am not the final arbiter, God is. But there are issues that are not up for debate. Those issue include, but are not limited to, faith alone, Christ alone, in scripture alone. Most Christians would probably agree.
I also agree that outside the church, as it relates to politics, the same maxim still applies.
We, as Christians, can disagree over the issue of taxes, war, spending, healthcare and other issues. From a scriptural point of view I cannot see where Christians can politically support a candidate who supports abortion, homosexual rights/marriage, and the disdain toward Israel.
How can a Christian support someone who does support things that are contrary to scripture?
I welcome your response. Please try to stay on topic.
