Romney

Looking for some pros and cons of Mitt Romney for president. Maybe you don't like his politics, maybe you don't like his mormonism. As 'evangelicals' should we be responsible to put the first Mormon president in the White house? Do we have the option of being 'religiously prejudiced'?

I do not in any way support Mitt Romney. Thanks to our former governor here in MA, we have government-mandated healthcare and homosexual marriage. Why wouldn't he stand up to the illegal actions of the State Supreme Court in Goodrich (spelling?) decision? His recent conservative conversion seems too convienent for me to believe. He reminds me of a Republican Bill Clinton - saying anything to get elected. Mark my words, if he gets the GOP nod, you'll start hearing moderate Mitt once again. As for his Mormonism, I do worry this cult will not have a more welcome presence in our nation.

Return to Rome?

All right. Here is my first question to throw around to everyone: "Why am I not Roman Catholic?" (of course, if you are, help us understand why you are and why we should be(?)) Sounds like an easy question, but not so easy. Let me ask a few penetrating questions to get us going. These are all questions I've heard in different forms...

Does Christ not have only one church?
Does Rome not have the onlyconsistenthistorical connection to the early church?
Did not Rome determine the new Testament cannon of Scriptures?
Does not Rome have what so many evangelicals lack: mystery, awe, contemplation, etc.?
One more, does our theology go asunder so irreparably?

Consider these Evangelical favorites: J RR Tolkien, G K Chesterton, and Mother Theresa. Are they not a sterling model of Christian imagination, thinking and service?

Hope this gets some discussion going.

The 'Greatest' Theologian/Preacher/Christian Philosopher

Here's a fun little discussion for us. Who is the greatest theologian since the apostle Paul? Sounds too subjective, but here are some criteria to evaluate by:

1) Personal life - Did this person's personal character reflect his convictions effectively?

2) Breadth of Influence - How wide and long has this person's influence effected the church and the world?

3) Depth of thought - How careful, biblical, and articulate were this persons's works?

My vote to come...
