Thank you very much for reading and commenting on my recent column (“On the hypocrisy of a Christian President). I’ve checked with my editor, and due to copyright issues, I can’t allow you to post my column on your website. However, it seems you can post a link to my column if you’d like to do that.
Again, thank you very much for your interest. All the best to you and your blog.
Christians are for Christ, not any fault filled human.
I personally am NOT a fan of George Bush. More evidence shows he is not a Christian then the contrary.
Things like the Tea Party Movement happened because real Christians are fed up with fake politicians. If you want an example of a Republican Christian I urge you to look into those who not only speak it, but live it.
Mike Huckabee – Southern Baptist Preacher. A man of peace, and dedication to his faith.
Ron Paul- One of the top Economics experts in America. Christian, and non conformist to his fair tax views, smart spending, and the Federal audit.
Do not buy into the left/right paradigm. Vote on the person, based on what he has done, NOT what he says or the party he represents.
The page about Tolstoi’s book “What I believe” is not part of the book category.
Btw, I commented on that book that it includes Tolstoi’s interpretation on the “love your enemies” commandment. The section is not very long, what about having a post with it? Personally I would be interested if someone knows about confirmations or critics to this interpretation.
I was looking for an e-mail.
Hey bro, you may check out my blog here at wordpress. I think you will like a few of my posts on faith and politics. “When Kingdoms Collide” is my latest one on the subject. I mention our Anabaptist brothers in my most recent post “Christ the Center.”

Herald Press, the book imprint of Mennonite Publishing Network, as published a new book about Guy F. Hershberger–one of the leading thinkers on non-resistance in the 20th century. It’s called War, Peace, and Social Conscience: The Life and Thought of Guy F. Hershberger.
You might want to consider adding the free ebook or PDF of Andre’ Trocme’ Jesus and the Nonviolent Revolution to your online book page. I found it an excellent read. For one it helped me see a difference in heart and motivation between Ghandi and Jesus.
Hi, perhaps you could answer the following objection my son offered to the idea of nonviolence?
In the encounters that Jesus has with the soldiers (For instance the Centurian.) nowhere does Jesus rebuke a soldier for his role in killing as he does others he encounters in sin. (For instance the prostitute being told to go and sin no more.) This indicates that Jesus has no issue with what soldiers do. Jesus even compliments the Centurion’s great faith as greater than any person’s in Israel. What is your response to such?
Until recently l was convinced that we had a Christian duty to serve our country. As a young man l tried to join the Navy with pride to go to Vietnam. Now l am not so sure. I see much truth in what you and others (like Tolstoy) write. Yet these are difficult issues! When one is faced with the possibility that one’s entire worldview may be based on false understandings and assumptions it creates fear, confusion and some anger. Yet, as a Christian, what choice do l have but to do as Jesus commands? However if l have been wrong for 60 years l need answers to the objections that come to mind to my struggles with such an important and momentous topic.
