    Jesus wasn't political in his orientation, he was inclusive very early in is ministry which makes him a lot like a liberal. He did affirm the Law of Moses and the faith of the Patriarchs which would make him conservative in any sense that has real meaning. He was and is everything both parties pretend to be with one exception, he delivers, something neither party has been able to do consistantly.

    No, but he was moral. There's a notion among those that want to be politely liberal, that God doesn't care about political evils. You can support any political evil you like, so long as you personally don't commit evil. so the argument goes. i would say Christ was against all evil, including political evil. He's grieved by the genocide committed against he unborn today in America (just crossed the 60 million mark this year).

    I don't disagree with that, I've long admired how the Catholics have been 100% consistant on their prolife stand, even when it was just contraception. Jesus sent away the Herodians, or any political factions, when you are rightful heir to the throne of David you can do that. Jesus wasn't just opposed to evil in the political arena, he knew how to cure it in the human heart. While it might not seem politically viable, it still changes lives forever.

    Grace and peace,
    Mark

    Yes, he sent away the Herodians and the Pharisees who opposed him. He didn't condemn them for being in leadership positions per se. He condemned them for doing wrong. But he also affirmed their political authority.

    Today, We The People are the political authority in America. We're the emperor so to speak. We, as a body, appoint the electors that appoint the most powerful governing authorities on earth.

    The ultimate answer is the Gospel, but if it's not transforming the professing Church into pro-lifers how's it going to transform unbelievers into pro-lifers?

    1. A day is a day. Period.
    2. The answer is Satan. Even before sin, Satan could've still corrupted some of God's creations.
    3. Layers of the fossil record prove a universal flood.

    Turtlehugger, please see my posts on pg 13: Earth, then light (Big Bang), Created on Day One; Sun, Moon and Stars Created on Day Four

    Hope that helps and gives you confidence in the historical narrative of Genesis 1 (not a symbolic, allegorical false interpretation) and the meaning of 'yom' (day) when the specific 'qualifiers' are attached to it. Mixing the account of God creating the heavens and the earth with naturalistic evolutionary theory is to mix the truth with lies. God creating the universe is the clearest evidence to mankind of His omnipotence and Deity! (see Romans 1:18ff). When that evidence, both from within and without, is suppressed, the the truth is exchanged for a lie.

    Your three questions at the beginning of this thread were excellent!

    You've hit upon the fundamental philosophical problem in all attempts to reconcile old earth evolutionary theory with the Genesis record (including the day-age theory).

    In the evolutionary model, millions of years of death are the process through which life is created.

    In the Genesis record, all life was created according to its kind prior to death entering the world as a destructive, not a constructive, force. The need for a messiah cannot be divorced from the history of humanity as recorded in Genesis.
