Time's fatal wings do ever forward fly; to every day we live, a day we die.

Tags: Die, Forward, Time

I contend that, in spite of all that might be said about Watergate, Richard Nixon was good for the poor people of America.

Tags: America, Good, Said

I don't doubt that God can bring good out of tragedies, but the Bible is clear that God is not the author of evil!

Tags: Evil, God, Good

I propose that the government should get out of the business of marrying people and, instead, only give legal status to civil unions.

Tags: Business, Government, Legal

I think it goes back to the fact that the evangelical community often does not have a biblical vision of God.

I think the time has come for the United States to do even-handed justice.

I'm a minister, and I serve as a minister in addition to being a university professor.

I've got some repenting to do.

In short, I'm not sure that the abortion problem can be solved by legislation. I think it can only be solved through moral persuasion.

Tags: Moral, Problem, Short

In the past, the Republican Party has depended on unified support at election time from Evangelical Christians. But times are changing!

Tags: Past, Time, Times

It has been said that people never do evil with more enthusiasm than when they do it in the name of God.

It is hard to say what the future holds, but this is probable - it won't be just like the past.

Tags: Future, Hard, Past

Lies and distortions can be spread, via the Internet, in an inexpensive way, and the effects are astounding.

Tags: Effects, Internet, Lies

Marriage should be viewed as an institution ordained by God and should be out of the control of the state.

Tags: Control, God, Marriage

Nowhere in the Hebrew Scriptures does it say that God is omnipotent.

Tags: God, Nowhere, Scriptures

Perhaps we would do well to listen to the likes of Rabbi Harold Kushner, who contends that God is not really as powerful as we have claimed.

Religion, for better or for worse, has been politicized in blatant ways that have seldom been equaled in American elections.

Tags: American, Religion, Ways

The Gospel is about grace and we all know that grace is about us receiving from God blessings that we don't deserve.

Tags: Blessings, God, Grace

To prevent discussion of any other explanations of human origins is hardly what I would expect from open-minded educators.

Whenever there is a catastrophe, some religious people inevitably ask, 'Why didn't God do something? Where was God when all those people died?'

Tags: God, Religious, Why

Women have the same privileges and opportunities as men, given the New Testament.

Young Evangelicals, especially, are breaking ranks with older Evangelicals (over 40) and are more and more leaning towards voting Democratic.

Tags: Older, Voting, Young

Although I believe that scripture is divinely inspired and infallible, I have a hard time going along with the belief that the whole creation process occurred in six twenty-four hour days.

Tags: Hard, Time, Whole

Freud taught us that it wasn't God that imposed judgment on us and made us feel guilty when we stepped out of line. Instead, it was the superego - that idealized concept of what a good person is supposed to be and do - given to us by our parents, that condemned us for what had been hitherto regarded as ungodly behavior.

Tags: God, Good, Parents

So I really would like to see both parties respond to the poor with greater commitment. But I've got to tell you, the Democrats, I feel, are doing a better job in that respect than Republicans are.

What if Barack Obama established a Presidential Advisory Committee that would meet once every couple of months, bringing together the former presidents for a conference in order to seek their collective wisdom? There is a wealth of experience in former presidents that generally goes untapped.

Tags: Experience, Together, Wisdom

After-school tutoring programs, care for the elderly, shelters for the homeless, disaster relief work, and a variety of other services would all benefit from government funding.

Tags: Care, Government, Work

And we've got to ask ourselves some very serious questions as to whether or not certain religious leaders, in terms of raising money - I hate to bring this up - are pushing hot buttons.

Tags: Hate, Money, Serious

Because of the increase in life longevity, America can now assume that at any given time three, and perhaps four, former presidents will still be alive, even when the current president is occupying the White House.

Tags: America, Life, Time

But I contend that if we're providing total medical coverage for every man, woman, and child in Iraq, shouldn't we at least be doing the same thing for every man, woman, and child in the United States?

Tags: Child, Medical, Woman

But I think it's up to a local congregation to determine whether or not a marriage should be blessed of God. And it shouldn't be up to the government.

Tags: God, Government, Marriage

Certain things happened in the early church. Women who had never had any freedom suddenly have the ability to stand up and speak and be treated as equals within the life of the church.

Tags: Freedom, Life, Women

Evangelical Christians, who once were a ridiculed irrelevant sectarian movement, have, over just three decades, become a powerful voting bloc that can no longer be ignored.

Flipping the dial through available radio stations there will blare out to any listener an array of broadcasts, 24/7, propagating Religious Right politics, along with what they deem to be 'old-time gospel preaching.' This is especially true of what comes over the airwaves in Bible Belt southern states.

Tags: Politics, Religious, True

Getting the government to put money into social programs run by religious institutions is a practice that started during the Clinton years, when Bill Clinton advocated the AmeriCorps program.

Tags: Government, Money, Put

I am not suggesting that all those missionary organizations working in Haiti should pack up and go home, but I am urging them to understand that Haiti does not need clever Americans with newly contrived schemes for saving their country.

Tags: Country, Home, Understand

I contend that Bush would be a lot more moderate if there weren't some fundamentalists breathing down his neck every time he wants to establish the state of Israel, every time he wants to do justice for the Palestinian people.

Tags: Justice, State, Time

I contend the state ought to do its thing and provide legal rights for all couples who want to be joined together for life. The church should bless unions that it sees fit to bless, and they should be called marriages.

Tags: Legal, Life, Together

I don't know of many evangelicals who want to deny gay couples their legal rights. However, most of us don't want to call it marriage, because we think that word has religious connotations, and we're not ready to see it used in ways that offend us.

Tags: Gay, Legal, Marriage

I teach at Eastern University, which is highly committed to doing work among the poor and the oppressed peoples of the world. We have a special commitment to the city.

Tags: Poor, Special, Work

I think there are other issues that the Democrats could use to rally evangelicals. There are a lot of us, for instance, who believe that the Bible calls us to be environmentally responsible.

Tags: Bible, Democrats, Issues

If marriage really is a sacred institution, then why is the government controlling it, especially in a nation that affirms separation of church and state?

Tags: Government, Marriage, Why

Like most Christians, I believe the Genesis account of creation is a description of six different stages of creation, each of which may have taken eons of time.

Tags: May, Taken, Time

Most Evangelicals claim to be politically non-partisan, and say they only identify with the Republican Party because the Republicans are committed to 'family values.'

Tags: Family, Republican, Values

My theology is such that the God who loves Israel and will not forsake Israel - which is why I want to see Israel have a secure nation with secure borders - also loves the Palestinians.

Tags: God, Nation, Why

President Bush once said that marriage is a sacred institution and should be reserved for the union of one man and one woman. If this is the case - and most Americans would agree with him on this - then I have to ask: Why is the government at all involved in marrying people?

Tags: Government, Marriage, Woman

Red Letter Christians believe in the doctrines of the Apostle's Creed, are convinced that the Scriptures have been inspired by the Holy Spirit, and make having a personal transforming relationship with the resurrected Christ the touchtone of their faith.

Tags: Faith, Inspired, Personal

Sigmund Freud was the apostle of disbelief. He was the one who made psychoanalysis a part of our culture, and in so doing he kicked out a flying buttress that had been essential for holding up our cathedral of faith.

Tags: Culture, Faith, Flying

So after the Lewinsky scandal, everything changed, and we moved from using the Bible to address the moral issues of our time, which were social, to moral issues of our time that were very personal. I have continued that relationship up until the present.

Tags: After, Moral, Time

That's what they do in Europe. You go down to the city hall and you become legally connected. You have a civil union there. Then, if you're religious, you go down to the church, and the church blesses the union. That gets the problem solved.

Tags: Become, Problem, Union

The first reason for the preponderant influence of those Evangelicals who define themselves as advocates of Religious Right theological and political ideologies is that they have both the financial means and technological know-how to make widespread use of modern electronic forms of communication.

Tags: Means, Political, Reason

The traditional spokespersons for the Evangelicals, such as Chuck Colson and James Dobson, have become alarmed about this drift away from the 'Family Values' issues that they believe should be the overwhelming concerns of Evangelicals. They have expressed their displeasure in letters of protest circulated through the religious media.

Tags: Away, Become, Family

There are reasons why Religious Right Evangelicals will continue to dominate religious discourse, not only in their own sector of the Christian community, but also in what transpires in mainline denominations.

Tags: Christian, Religious, Why

There is no doubt that religion had already waned under the onslaught of the Enlightenment, but it was Freud who provided the radically new understanding of human nature that made any religious explanation of the whats and whys of our personhood seem naive.

Tags: Human, Nature, Religion

What is especially important is addressing the question of how religion can be enforced through political means and what can be done to create a political environment that, on the one hand, acknowledges the role of religion in society, while on the other hand does not impose one religion on the populace at the expense of all others.

Tags: Political, Religion, Society

When you listen to Christian radio stations - and there are thousands of them now in the United States - and when you listen to Christian television networks - and there are thousands of Christian television shows across the country - they are all politically right.

Tags: Christian, Country, Listen

When you talk about evangelicals, don't forget that a significant proportion of the evangelical community is African American. And most African Americans - well over 90 percent, thoroughly evangelical, thoroughly biblical - will probably vote Democratic.

Tags: Forget, Talk, Vote

While a case can be made for intelligent design, I can't figure out why some Christians are so thrilled about that possibility. First of all, it doesn't prove there's a God. If anything, intelligent design lends support to some form of pantheism that defines God as immanent within nature.

Tags: Design, God, Nature

Who's to say that there is any more support for Freud's psychoanalytic concept of the superego than there is for that old time religion that asserted that there is a God who ordains what is right and wrong, and that His righteousness endures for all generations?

Tags: God, Religion, Time

Those issues are biblical issues: to care for the sick, to feed the hungry, to stand up for the oppressed. I contend that if the evangelical community became more biblical, everything would change.

Tags: Care, Change, Sick

Often, we ignore the fact that our spiritual condition and psychological state of mind are highly affected by what is happening to us physically. Sometimes depression is simply the result of exhaustion.

Tags: Depression, Mind, Spiritual

The reason why I buy into the Democratic Party more than the Republican Party is because there are over 2,000 verses of Scripture that deal with responding to the needs of the poor.

Tags: Poor, Reason, Why

Sadly, we do a much better job of making people feel guilty than we do of delivering them from the guilt we create. We need to confess this and change our ways.

Tags: Change, Guilty, Job

Of the 22 industrialized nations of the world, we're dead last in per capita giving to poor people.

When leading evangelicals say terrible things about Islam, evil things about Islam, terrible things about Muhammad, they ought to be ashamed of themselves.

Tags: Evil, Islam, Themselves

When you were born, you cried and everybody else was happy. The only question that matters is this - when you die, will you be happy when everybody else is crying?

Tags: Die, Else, Happy

Prior to ROE V. WADE, abortions were common even though they were illegal. I don't think making them illegal again is going to solve the problem.

Tags: Again, Making, Problem

If America is too arrogant, too prideful to repent, it's not the kind of country that God wants it to be.

Tags: America, Country, God

I am looking for suggestions on what we can do about extremists within our own society. They cannot be ignored.

Tags: Cannot, Looking, Society

I think the real place where most evangelicals have trouble with the Democratic Party is on the issue of abortion.

Tags: Place, Real, Trouble

I, for one, am quite willing to join the 'forgive, forget and move on' crowd, but it does make me wonder if Evangelicals are going to sound believable when they say that they tend to vote Republican because of their religious commitments to the family.

Tags: Family, Forget, Forgive

If a guy is intimidated by a woman in leadership, he has real problems with his own concepts of masculinity. That's a harsh statement, but I believe it to be true.

Tags: Leadership, True, Woman

It's a new day for the Democrats when it comes to matters of faith, and the younger Evangelicals are aware of this and many of them are moving into the Democratic camp.

Tags: Faith, Matters, Moving

The real problem that I think those of us who are evangelicals and Democrats have to face up to is that the political right controls the religious media.

Tags: Political, Problem, Real

The two hot issues are the gay issue and the abortion issue. These are the two defining issues in the evangelical community these days. I'm sure that these hot buttons will be pushed, time and time again.

Tags: Again, Gay, Time

A strong case can be made for religious leaders to speak out on political issues.

Tags: Political, Speak, Strong

As we consider the causes of depression, those of us in the church must face the ways we might be responsible for creating it.

Tags: Depression, Face, Might

Christianity isn't the only group that has fundamentalists.

Tags: Group

Clinton's successor in the White House, George W. Bush, was committed to expanding government spending for faith-based initiatives.

Tags: Government, House, White

From the beginning, there have been some religious leaders who greeted the funding of faith-based social services by government with ambivalence.

Tags: Beginning, Government, Social

Haitians do not need development programs imposed on them by expatriates. Instead, they need help in developing as self-assured persons.

Tags: Developing, Help, Persons

I am relatively sure, from conversations that I had with former president Bill Clinton, that George Bush seldom called upon him for advice.

Tags: Advice, Him, Sure

I applaud the growing commitment of Evangelicals to the needs of the poor and oppressed in urban America.

Tags: America, Growing, Poor

I contend that it's impossible to read the Sermon on the Mount and not come out against capital punishment.
