As a conservative Christian, do you still "love" televangelists- even the most shameless and/or corrupt. Like how're you're supposed to love your neighbor and all that?

Q: Does any creed adequately represent a statement of faith for you?

Also, do you as a Christian compartmentalize your religious beliefs/ faith?

As a Christian, what are your feelings or how do you feel when you see or hear sacreligious things said about Jesus or God- to the point of being blasphemous. Examples: Cursing out God, Jesus, etc. Massive atheistic proclamations and mocking of your faith?

You said you are not against the death penalty - do you find that the death penalty is an issue that is much agreed on or much disputed over by those whom you worship/have worshipped with?

I think their cat orgy ad was feckin hilarious!

Anyway, I believe in the ethical treatment of animals, but an animal is still an animal - not made in the image of God. I don't have a religious problem killing and eating animals. I don't care if people wear fur, but I don't like it when killing for fur makes a species extinct or endangered b/c personally I just love animals and I don't want them gone forever. I guess religiously, I believe animals were made for humans, to be food, pets, helpers w/ work, etc.

I guess I would say it like MArtin Luther King Jr - I don't LIKE them but I LOVE them. I don't think love has to mean you want to be in some relationship w/ someone or always are emphathetic towards them; rather, you acknowledge that as human beings you were both created equally in the image of God.

The Apostles' Creed....ok, that's a cop out! I accept the Nicene Creed. I would say my faith is most influenced by the theology of John Calvin, Friederich Schleiermacher (his understanding of prayer...something I struggled with and he made it so clear), and Jonathan Edwards (his understanding of free will). My church also loves the Heidelberg Catechism and will often use questions/answers in place of a Scripture passage for a service. This is a pretty good summary:

Question 1. What is thy only comfort in life and death?

Answer: That I with body and soul, both in life and death, (a) am not my own, (b) but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ; (c) who, with his precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins, (d) and delivered me from all the power of the devil; (e) and so preserves me (f) that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; (g) yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, (h) and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, (i) and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him. (j)

Can you be more specific?

I don't really "feel" anything because how could I make someone who's not a Christian care whether or not they say "oh my God" all the time? Personally, I try not to use words like God, Jesus, Christ, or Lord in that way because I don't think it's right. As for mocking of my faith, I think it's rather sad that some people choose to just mock others' beliefs. I think it's pretty cowardly and it doesn't really offend me, I just feel bad for the other person b/c they feel the need to stoop to that level.

Usually, it's a 50/50 split, but it's not really debated here b/c we don't have the death penalty and there doesn't seem to be a push to change this even if a lot of people still think it's OK. Homosexuality and abortion are much "hotter" topics.

Edit: oh, and I am against the death penalty. Maybe there was a typo in my other post.
