For any of you who haven’t read Dr. Hughes book, Christian American and the Kingdom of God, you should. In this essay, Hughes’ premise is short:

I say that because 83% of the American people claim to be Christians. If those Christians lived as they are taught to live by the teacher they claim to follow, the American public square would be a very different kind of place.

He goes on to single out a few current, trending, ‘Christian’ politicians, namely Sharon Angle, Newt and Sister Sarah, for their profession of Christianity with their lips, but their actions show something else. Read the rest here:

  1. Amen!

    Christianity isn't a worldview, and it isn't a political party. It sure as heck isn't a capitalist economic system.

    The misuse of Christ's Name to align with secular forces is sin.

    Let's be honest about it, if 87% of Americans were Christians, we wouldn't have homeless people. We wouldn't have children going hungry. Pornography wouldn't be the biggest and fastest-growing entertainment sector.
