Next, I am very excited to tell you all about the new commenting feature in Blogger. Threaded comments have now been made possible by the geeks in the 'Blogger' office. To you, my friends, I offer my sincerest thanks.
Basically how this works, is you comment, then another person can clearly respond to your comment by hitting the reply button under the comment. It is great!
Lastly, I picked up another book, which will definitely spark some thoughts here. After reading the prefaces and introduction, the topic makes me nervous though, itdefinitely dangerous. The book is The Federal Vision and Covenant Theology: A Comparative Analysis, by Guy Prentiss Waters.
I also wanted to share some thoughts on a pretty touchy topic. I was listening to Lars Larson (a local radio talk show host) and he said something that struck me. The essence of it was that to discriminate a presidential candidate based on their religion was both unconstitutional and un-American. My answer: maybe, but since when are Christians concerned primarily with being Christian?
To have a Muslim radical in the White House would definitely be grounds for many many people, and not just Christians, to dismiss his eligibility as president. The reason being, the motivation behind the man's actions would assuredly reflect his theology. Everyone has a theology at the basis of his worldview, and his opinions on this topic will influence his actions in everything he does.
For Larson to call Christians bigots on the idea that they would reject a Mormon president in my opinion is very un-Christian of him, and that is far more important than being American. since when were we first and foremost Americans? Since when was America greater than God?
I like Larson, but every once in a while, he says some things that get my goat. This is one of them. It is fully proper and fitting that we as Christians seek to be led by a first and foremost Christian man. Not a perfect man, but a man like David. A man after God's own heart. Can a man who worships a false god be after His own heart?
