Christian Politics

Post by buggy on Sat Sep 11, 2010 5:15 pm

I was reading through the posts and was looking for something on Christian Politicians or Godly Leaders in Government. Didn't see it so I hope it's OK to start a new post. Yes? If so... then how about listing some good folks who are Christian Leaders in Government. Just a thought!

Here's one I've Got... Mike Hukkabee!

He's really sincere and down to earth and lives what he preaches!

Great Topic Buggy! Food for Thought and Prayer!

If I'm allowed my 2 cents... I'm goin' with Sarah Palin! Others I know from past elections, but she is Grinding it out right now! I don't know what the future holds, but I do know she lives a wonderful sample. Not just a lot of talk!

Glenn Beck is an interesting man Buzz! He recently had a huge march in Washington to bring people back to God! Here's a rundown on him from Wikapidia.

Glenn Lee Beck (born February 10, 1964) is an American conservative[4] radio and television host, political commentator, author, and entrepreneur. He is currently the host of The Glenn Beck Program, a nationally syndicated talk-radio show that airs throughout the United States on Premiere Radio Networks; He is also the host of a self-titled cable-news show on Fox News Channel. As an author, Beck has had six New York Times-bestselling books, with five debuting at #1.[1] Beck is also the founder and CEO of Mercury Radio Arts, a multi-media production company through which he produces content for radio, television, publishing, the stage, and the Internet.
Beck was born in Everett, Washington and raised as a Roman Catholic. He obtained his first broadcast job as a disc-jockey for his hometown radio station at the age of 13 after winning a contest. When his mother died, Beck moved to Bellingham, where he attended high school. After graduation, he worked at radio stations in Provo, Utah, Washington D.C. and New Haven, Connecticut. Along the way, Beck married and divorced his first wife. He also struggled with drug and alcohol abuse, and went through recovery in the mid 1990s. After marrying his second wife Tania in 1999, the couple converted to Mormonism.
Beck's array of media outlets have brought him wealth and popularity, along with recurring controversy and criticism. Beck's provocative and polarizing views can range from being seen as principled and revelatory, to erroneous and offensive. His supporters believe he is a Constitutional stalwart defending traditional American values from secular progressivism,[5] while his critics contend he promotes conspiracy theories and employs incendiary rhetoric.[6]

Peter... Sarah Palin really is a force to be reckoned with!

They can make all sorts of jokes about her funny idiosyncrasies and speech pasterns, but she speaks from the heart with faith and reaches out to a lot of sincere people out there! The Democrats might try and use her to divide the republican party and keep Obama in Power or she might unite the Republicans in a more fundamental and conservative cause. Anyway I do thank God that she is an honest voice in a tough realm of self interested and self motivated people! She'd get my support... so would Mike Hukkabee!

I think this is a good idea having a post like this. Christians should get involved, they should have their voice heard. Not just be dumb sheep led around by their noses! Folks need to remember that that was how America was founded and pioneered, largely by good honest Christians seeking a better more fair and honest life.

Well I do respect the folks that are sincere Christians in Politics, But and it is a BIG BUT, I think we should respect the separation of church and state. Even if only for the reason that those who push their religion too much have about a ZERO chance of being elected.

YA... Ok. These folks are the present up and comers, but there are a number of folks who don;t make a big show out of it, but they are very sincere Christians and have done their best to be good godly leaders. Reagan for one who gave a great inspirational speech in Shanghai in 1986 when he visited Jou Toung University. You would have thought him to be a preacher.

I agree, some of these folks are really sincere and dedicated in their faith. Others though like Obama and a few others that I have seen can talk the talk, but they can't walk the walk! They don't walk with the Lord and it shows in their actions!

I was excited to have Obama become President, but then he just didn't play out his seeming beliefs. He never went to church... he has had a lot of Muslim contacts that were questionable and he has quietly presented a very anti religious agenda. So I hope we can get someone new in... in 2012. He Mantra d "Change We CAN BELIEVE IN" AND EVERYBODY SHOUTED "We Can"... But it is not the change we were hoping for. I pray for him everyday, but I think we need a change. That's...

I was very impressed by Herman Cain who is a solid Christian along with a lot of experience about turning things around. Here is some information on him.

What you may not know about Herman Cain who is running for president....

He’s not a career politician (in fact he has never held political office). He’s known as a pizza guy, but there’s a lot more to him. He’s also a computer guy, a banker guy, and a rocket scientist guy.
Here’s his bio:
• Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics.
• Master’s degree in Computer Science.
• Mathematician for the Navy, where he worked on missile ballistics (making him a rocket scientist).
• Computer systems analyst for Coca-Cola.
• VP of Corporate Data Systems and Services for Pillsbury (this is the top of the ladder in the computer world, being in charge of information systems for a major corporation).
All achieved before reaching the age of 35. Since he reached the top of the information systems world, he changed careers!
• Business Manager. Took charge of Pillsbury’s 400 Burger King restaurants in the Philadelphia area, which were the company’s poorest performers in the country. Spent the first nine months learning the business from the ground up, cooking hamburger and yes, cleaning toilets. After three years he had turned them into the company’s best performers.
• Godfather’s Pizza CEO. Was asked by Pillsbury to take charge of their Godfather’s Pizza chain (which was on the verge of bankruptcy). He made it profitable in 14 months.
• In 1988 he led a buyout of the Godfather’s Pizza chain from Pillsbury. He was now the owner of a restaurant chain. Again he reached the top of the ladder of another industry.
• He was also chairman of the National Restaurant Association during this time. This is a group that interacts with government on behalf of the restaurant industry, and it gave him political experience from the non-politician side.
Having reached the top of a second industry, he changed careers again!
• Adviser to the Federal Reserve System. Herman Cain went to work for the Federal Reserve Banking System advising them on how monetary policy changes would affect American businesses.
• Chairman of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank. He worked his way up to the chairmanship of a regional Federal Reserve bank. This is only one step below the chairmanship of the entire Federal Reserve System (the top banking position in the country). This position allowed him to see how monetary policy is made from the inside, and understand the political forces that impact the monetary system.
After reaching the top of the banking industry, he changed careers for a fourth time!
• Writer and public speaker. He then started to write and speak on leadership. His books include Speak as a Leader, CEO of Self, Leadership is Common Sense, and They Think You’re Stupid.
• Radio Host. Around 2007—after a remarkable 40 year career—he started hosting a radio show on WSB in Atlanta (the largest talk radio station in the country).
He did all this starting from rock bottom (his father was a chauffeur and his mother was a maid). When you add up his accomplishments in his life—including reaching the top of three unrelated industries: information systems, business management, and banking—

STACK THAT UP AGAINST THE 'COMMUNITY ORGANIZER'....

Herman Cain may have the most impressive resume of anyone that has run for the presidency in the last half century.

Sam I agree. Time for a change. We too pray for him as he is the president, but hopefully we will have someone new in 2012.

Brandy your post on Herman Cain was really interesting. Before that my reaction would have been "Herman Who"? He really is a good Christian and gives the Lord credit for his success. Should be interesting to see how it all goes.

Wow you guys are gonna think I'm bonkers, but I think Romney is the best chance for change. A Mormon is better than a Muslim at this time and in my book.
Cain seems like a sincere Christian, but I don't think he could win. Sure has me praying. Hate to see that Obama Won the Presidency first against "McCain" then again against "Cain".

He's a very sincere and dedicated Christian. Often willing to stand up for his beliefs though they be unpopular and not well received. A good, honest and faithful man. The problem is though that he is seen as not able to win the general election. Time will tell.

This is a religious site so I will watch my words but I do feel strongly that future generations will be strongly affected by this election. In 20 or 30 years perceptions will based and history will be written by choices made now. We have an opportunity to put someone in with stronger moral convictions than President Obama and given that freedom I think we should act. That is my prayer and hope.

I agree but I still pray for the President. He carries a great responsibility and I do feel he has grown and changed over his time in office. I am thankful for the good he has accomplished and though a change might be better for the country he has made some positive moves in the right direction.
Honestly I feel he has just made race too much of an issue and encouraged the occupy Wall Street Folks and has sown a seed of discontent. That's not good for anyone. In the long run I hope he and others will see that. Thank you for your honesty Bill and I did agree with you. I usually vote as a Dem but I would take either Santorum or Romney if the election was held today. It's not a matter of race it is a matter of moral convictions and righteous faith in God. That's where I stand.

What the heck is Mormonism? Anybody know? All I know is guys on bicycles in white shirts and ties. They had an issue with polygamy at some stage and seem pretty strict. That and… the next President could be a Mormon Minister. Anybody able to give a shout out there… I'd like to know! Thanks.

Hi Chris, I Don't know much either. I believe Joseph Smith got a revelation about 150 years ago and wrote the book of Mormon. It is supposed to be divinely inspired. The group he founded moved to Utah where they set up camp and have been growing ever since. Despite some serious questions about their beliefs, all the Mormon people I have met here in Japan are very very nice people. They are honest and dedicated and very sincere. They take great care of their children and train them up to be missionaries at which they have had very good success. Your Mitt Romney might make a very good leader though his beliefs might be a bit out there. Sorry that's not much, but it's all I've got.Here's Wikipedia link on them.
