However, I feel like they are trying to mix church and state. When one does that, you are treading a slippery slope towards a theocracy. As one can see, just by a simple glance at the Middle Eastern nations, a theocracy leads to corruption. I think we are already dealing with enough of that as it is.
20Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity(sin).
24Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
10Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
11For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
18Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
19My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
20I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
21That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.

Jesus was even in favor of separation of church and state. Render what is Caesars to Caesar... Refused to become a political king and so forth.

I came across this as I was digging for other stuff ...
More than likely it has been discussed before I am sure at ATS ..
It is pretty clear to me that the Christian right was played by politicians .
Especially by the Bush Admin ...Alot of us christians at that time saw it for what it was and did tell it as loud as we could to other Christians ..and were of course branded and banned from most message boards at that time ..
Because of course it is disturbing for them to even think for one minute that they had been played ....
In a nut shell it discusses the Dominionist /Masonic agenda and the speeches of Bush and the speechwriters purposes ...which was to use words (scriptures or closely related scriptural references ) that would get the bible believers attention to sway them into accepting anything that Bush and Co was doing as divinely inspired .
Anyway it is a good read and sheds light on what was said ..what was done and why it was done ...
Sorry in advance if this has already been brought up ...
Think about it, he has to be. Anger, Jealousy, covetousness, vengeance, extreme bias towards his 'chosen people' in the Israel-Palestine conflict and against literally everyone else in creation; all these are hallmarks of the politics of a die hard Republican. Well, we should probably say were hallmarks of a die-hard Republican. Nowadays they are also the hallmarks of die-hard Democrats, the two-party system having long since given way to the unifying power of "Christo-Judaism" and the influence of their representatives on earth - the Washington Neocons and their Zionist friends.

due to the right wing pulling Christianity through the mud as they have, many people have grown angry and hostile toward evangelical Christianity due to the distorted view of it that's shown.

You are not thinking rationally here.
Are you saying God did not actively particpate in the wars Israel has fought?
Are you saying he had no part in letting them go into captivity on more than one occasion?
Are you saying he had no part in bringing them back to their land?
You don't have just timbers growing in your eyes - but actual trees, with roots.Lol
You are spiritually blind or you would understand how anointings take place and God works through people to bring about his will.
I somehow believe if Jesus was here right now he would mix up for you a bit of spit and mud to fix those trees that have taken root in your eyes.
In its current form Zionism seeks to dominate all of Palestine and the Middle East by means of violence and the threat of violence (using weapons manufactured and purchased with billions of dollars of "aid" supplied by the United States at taxpayer expense) and to maximize its influence in world affairs and in world history, principally by means of control of the government of the USA (primarily by blackmailing its many corrupt politicians), at the expense of the social wellbeing not only of the Palestinians but of the peoples of all lands.
