Do "real christians" bear false witness against their neighbor?

If you support the claim, and since the author is not answering, you can answer for him.

Please prove that 90% of evangelicals REFUSE to practice LOVE, MERCY, JUSTICE and COMPASSION.

You guys ooze with resentment for evangelical Christians, but it's simply not smart to make claims (or defend such claims) which are impossible to back up. Everyone knows the claims are invented for the sole purpose of smearing other people.

Where is the LOVE, MERCY, JUSTICE and COMPASSION you guys keep talking about? All I see is venom.

You won't be able to prove it, because everyone knows you invented the claim to make Christians look bad.

For the 3rd time: Please prove that 90% of evangelicals REFUSE to practice LOVE, MERCY, JUSTICE and COMPASSION.

I didn't ask what you think about the Republican party.

The word evangelical derives from a greek word meaning good news, the gospel. An evangelical Christian is a person who shares the good news. I am sorry it offends you.

You're just mad because we don't support homosexuality and now you want to label us as non-Christians? Ridiculous. Take a look at evangelical churches and you'll find most of them have ministries and programs to help the needy.

Yet you don't see it in the Bible either--and it isn't necessary to prove what evangelicals believe because they believe in spreading everything they "believe" on the internet and news media. It's read almost every day. The latest was the attempt in Georgia to pass still another "religious freedom" act, which really should be called the "gay persecution" act.

And nobody has borne false witness---PROVE it, Mr. Proof.

Is it possible for an evangelical to be a christian. Certainly!! Just as Jesus said it was easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven. Possible, just extremely difficult.

If that doesn't include needy homosexuals its a waste of your time bragging about it.

As Jesus said,
Quote:
"For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?"
Matt. 5:46-47

They use the words 'evangelical christian' like it was a bad word, but it seems they do not even know what it means. Some evangelicals can be very progressive, and even Catholics can be Evangelical Christians. As a matter of fact pope Francis has been referred to as an "Evangelical Catholic". Jews can be evangelicals.

What do evangelicals do? They preach the gospel. Jesus did. He was evangelical.
