Puritan Belief

The Puritans are the men of God who started in the 16th century building on the purity of the gospel message that Salvation is by Grace alone.

Its Cool to be a Christian

Following on from yesterdays post on the Priesthood of All Believers. I thought it useful to show what is happening currently in Australia. For readers who are not politically minded in Australia there has been a recent uprising of political figures making a claim to be a Christian. These include Kevin Rudd, Peter Garrett, Julia Irwin and even Kim Beazley.

Kevin Rudd who is a catholic become Anglican and Peter Garrett who is an Anglican become Uniting Church man.

To those of us with a Puritan Belief we cringe when we hear their testimony to humanity and good works and being nice people rather then to Jesus.

In the Australian today an article claiming that "Its cool to be a Christian" and quotes politicians who are approaching Christianity from a Humanistic and vote yielding angle because they know that this speaks to the right wing silent majority in Australia.

You may ask why am I so critical. After all isn't this good that our politicians are at least recognising Christ?

The answer here is quite simple anyone who looks back at History knows that it was the Catholics and church of England that has spilt the blood of the saints. When these churches rise up, again it will be the true Christians being taken to the gallows. Remember these politicians and churches are as a gentle as Lambs when they start out as cunning as foxes on the uprising and as ferocious as Lions when they gain power. The Puritans are no strangers with many having been put to death and fleeing their homeland.

You raise some good points in this piece Puritan...

But be careful of not jumping the gun here... I don't know about the other politicans mentioned but Kevin Rudd is a long standing memeber of the "Parlimentary Christian Group" (which has members from both sides of politics) and - I think - is currently the group's leader...

That said... I share many of your concerns... Let's sit back and see if they truly bear fruit...
