By Spencer Gear, published 6/11/2019

Perhaps Christians are loath to criticise Morrison because we have a Christian PM at last.

"Notice how he dodges the journalist's questions".

Morrison dodges questions on everything. He is the most secretive PM we have ever had. His happy clapping in the midst of a sweaty mob doesn't make him a Christian either.

Anyone trying to analyse the man is doomed to failure: there is nothing there to latch onto. Morrison is a void.

No!

He like the Author is still welded to the Christian/ (Constantine) manifesto. And like the Author? Is able to cherry-pick from Contatine's cherry-picked Dogma for convenience?

In the days when alleged Biblical text was written, some 350 years after the event? Many books were left out at the behest of Constantine and or, his hand-picked minions!

One needs to understand that it was once required of believers to believe that planet earth was just 6,000 years old, at the centre of the universe which revolved around it! And those who challenged such irrefutable sacred text could be excommunicated!

And only possible because like all manifestos of cults, it had to be brainwashed into the herded and control community who had in this system of POLITICAL CONTROL they had no more rights to heir own minds than common herded cattle!

If J.C. Walked among us today with his predilection for exclusive male company and kind gentle nature he'd probably be labelled by the Auther as a homosexual deviant!?

And given he is now walking among us? Would probably have voted for SSM, given we are created as we are, flawed, warts and all! Ever human extant on the planet has the right to love and be loved, express themselves sexually as it is natural to them even if it seems, like left-handedness an aberration of the perceived norm.

It is written therefore it is true is all the proof any alleged believer (cult member) needs to persecute and discriminate against any personally perceived difference.

So, On these pages, I will write.

You Sir a hidebound fool spreading hate and deception?

And to use your own standard of irrefutable proof.

Because it is written! It is therefore true!

Whatever he may be it will be most interesting should one of his "miracle" daughters turn out to be gay.

The principle of "Separation of Church & State" means Christians must run for office & win an election. Rather than be appointed to the King's court for no reason other than being Bishop.

NOTHING else. We are a Christian country. Christianity was written into both our Constitution & Common Law.

Christian principles should be foremost with EVERY politician, public servant & government.

If Christians were united on many of these issues then I agree that the standard should be shared by politicians claiming their faith to be Christian. Unfortunately, I've come across too many types of christians to hold a standard of what counts as Christian and what doesn't. Some don't believe in the bible, because of social preasure to call it outdated and an old book. Others don't believe in miracles, the very works that God does that are above and beyond the natural element of the world. And many without a tradition, a church foundation, or a devote study to ground them, mix up popular ideas with their faith. Things like "God looks after those who look after themselves" instead of that "God looks after the poor, the sick, and the widowed."

With such confusion in the ranks one question needs to be asked, what makes a person a Christian? Is it a base knowledge and understanding that is agreed with? Go past that line and reject some of that and you are no longer a Christian? Is it obedience to teachings and the laws? Is it faith in God and Jesus? I'm sure whatever answer to the question "what makes a Christian a Christian," will overlap the three aspects above with faith, understanding, and obedience (behavior), all summing up a minimum for what it means to be a Christian.

(Continued)

I think it is good for Christians to hold each other accountable in order to strengthen them in their faith. But I also know that kindness and understanding should be there too. Very few Christians can say they are great at understanding God's direction, great at acting according to their faith, and great at having faith that is stronger then the difficulties and the opposition we face in life.

The trouble with ScoMo is probably the same trouble many Christians face. They believe but are not strong in their beliefs. They have faith but are not always confidant in that faith. Or they compromise their behaviors and do not follow the direction they know is right.

I know these are just a bunch of excuses for anyone regardless if they are a PM, or are anyone else, but excuses or not this is the situation we find ourselves in. Our weaknesses are easy to over power most of us.

OzSpen, from what you've shown in this article it seems ScoMo is along the same lines. He dodges some of those questions because he's not strong in his Christian foundation to stand up to the opposition. A quality that unfortunately many of us share. If you can, pray for him. Even in light of his stumbling. If you can do more then that too, awesome. Encourage him when you can, and confront him when he's in the wrong. But still pray for him even if you can do more also.
