Are We As Crazy As The Liberals?

I don't know why but I am following a liberal Presbyterian on Twitter. He is insane. He curses like a sailor, calls me and several others "fundieloons," and has compassion for everyone{except the "fundieloons"}, even celebrating their sin.

Over the past several days there have been some suicides of some teens who were apparantly homosexual. He is blaming the "fundieloons." Now there are those "conservative christians" who resort to vulgar language and have no compassion, I am thinking here of Fred Phelps and the Westboro Baptist folk, but I think they are a small minority among conservatives and I loath being lumped in with them. I, as a conservative Christian, would treat these young ones as I would anyone living in unrepentant sin. With love I would point them to Jesus Christ, God in the flesh, who lived the sinless life we never could, died the perfect sacrificial death to pay for our sins and rose again on the third day assuring us of eternal life. The gospel of God is strong enough to save even sinners such as these poor young men who felt they had no option but to take their own lives.

If I could talk with this liberal on twitter without him cursing me out or resorting to ad-hominem attacks I would ask him what is more loving, telling them there is escape from this sin in the gospel of Christ or telling them it is ok to live their lives in a sin that will condem them to hell?

Finally, the point I began this post thinking about is this. Are we as guilty of misrepresenting the liberals sometimes as they are of us? What say you?

I Have A New Phone!

My wife and I got new cell phones last week. We were due for upgrades and since her Centro was literally falling apart we went for the newly released Samsung Epic. I was going to get the new HTC Evo but the slide out keyboard and super amoled screen sold me on the epic. This is an adroid phone so now I just need Logos to put out their android app and all will be well in the world. They do have a Blogger app, which I am using now, so maybe I will get around to posting more often. One thing I don't like is the battery life on this thing,, gotta run now and charge my new phone, again.
