Bible Prophecy Today : a political action team?

After watching posts I have to ask:

What happened to Jesus?

Bible Prophecy Today : a political action team?

“Bible Claiming Politicians and Blogs”

If you care, you better pray, this Org this guy represents is all about using Christianity for Politics and Humanism. See Who and What they are by their statement below.

What happened to Bible Prophecy Today?

By Mark Tooley
Institute on Religion & Democracy

Joining with groups like ACORN, a wide coalition of religiousleft groups will march on Washington, D.C. on March 21 on behalf of eventual amnesty and largely open borders under the rubric of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR). The National Council of Churches (NCC) is even hailing CIR as a “divine mandate” and a “patriotic act.”

Mission Statement

 

To Reform the Churches’ Social Witness and Renew Democracy

The Institute on Religion and Democracy is

·        an ecumenical alliance of U.S. Christians

·        working to reform their churches’ social witness, in accord with biblical and historic Christian teachings,

·        to contribute to the renewal of democratic society at home and abroad.

 

The Institute on Religion and Democracy is:

 

·         an ecumenical alliance of U.S. Christians

·        We reflect genuine biblical ecumenism, that is, unity across denominational boundaries based on a shared belief in the truth of Christian orthodoxy.

·        This includes mainline and other evangelical Protestants, Roman Catholics, and Eastern Orthodox Christians working together in common cause.

 

·        working to reform their churches’ social witness, in accord with biblical and historic Christian teachings

·        Convinced that a personal faith in Christ is never private, but has public implications, we encourage strong churches and denominations that will take their faith into the public square.

·        We propose social witness policies that are in accord with biblical and historic Christian teachings along with strategies to implement those policies.

·        When it is necessary, we oppose social witness policies that are out of accord with biblical and historic Christian teachings or that make excessive and unjustified claims to scriptural and traditional authority.

·        Our policy proposals and critiques are based on the best scholarship available.  This reflects our role as a Washington based policy institute.

·        The communications and educational materials we produce for Christian leaders and congregations outside of the Washington policy community are lucid, accessible, and practical.  This reflects our role as an activist and educational organization serving the churches.

·        We recognize that on many issues (e.g.: immigration, tax policy, and welfare reform) that there is no definitive Christian position, but that biblical and historic Christian teachings nonetheless inform policies.

 

·        to contribute to the renewal of democratic society at home and abroad.

·        We work toward the restoration of the role of religion in giving moral definition and direction to public life and policy.

·        This includes outreach to policy makers in Washington and to Christian leaders in their churches and denominations.

·        “It is our purpose to illuminate the relationship between Christian faith and democratic governance. It is also our purpose to oppose policies and programs in the churches which ignore or deny that relationship.” (from “Christianity and Democracy”)

·        The work of the IRD will continue to focus on both domestic policy and foreign policy, especially the international issues of human rights and religious freedom, two cornerstones of democratic society.

(Unveiled is a very Humanistic Board)

It would be nice if they were born again.

The deeper I read into it, the more I realized, these guys need Jesus.

 

 

 

 

 

The Prophetic Perspective

Prove All Things knowing that all Prophecy is about Jesus and God revealing His Son…To us..for our…Salvation. We post material that is questionable, objectionable, and in the opinion of the Editor of the Prophetic Perspective, valid to use as God chooses to. Sometimes that is highly suspect as material setting “dates” of the Rapture is, but often these posts, may have pieces that are correct to futher study.
