  1. I'll give Ed Berry his due that he has the guts to take a public stand for what he believes. I respect that.
    As I put the election into perspective, I take comfort in the words of another man who has the power of conviction, Pastor Chuck Baldwin of Liberty Fellowship. Last Sunday he emphasized that he does not fear Obama, he fears only God. That's good advice and true leadership in my book.

    Calling Chuck Baldwin of Liberty Fellowship a leader makes me laugh. Chuck Baldwin is a fear monger and he certainly is not a pastor. Mr. Baldwin likes to take Bible passages out of context. If he were a real pastor he would teach the Word of God in an expository manner. Instead, Mr. Baldwin finds a handful of verses he can take out of context to support his political message.

    Having attended Liberty Fellowship, I can say there is/was not much Bible teaching going on. I would call attending Liberty Fellowship more like attending a political rally. The only thing Chuck fears is having his financial spigot turned off.

    If you do not believe me ask Chuck to explain Romans 9 or ask him to explain John 6:44 "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day."

    While you are at it, ask him to explain what the Greek word for "draw" as in, "the Father who sent me draws him" means. The Greek word used in this verse is used 8 times in the New Testament (John 18:10, John 21:6, Acts 16:19, and James 2:6) and every time it is used it means to drag against their will. According to Thayer it means:

    G1670
    ἑλκύω / ἕλκω
    helkuō / helkō
    Thayer Definition:
    1) to draw, drag off
    2) metaphorically, to draw by inward power, lead, impel
    Part of Speech: verb
    A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: probably akin to G138
    Citing in TDNT: 2:503, 227

    Now Chuck Baldwin will proclaim that man has free will to choose God. In the 16th Century a man by the name of Erasmus proclaimed a similar stance to Chuck Baldwin and Martin Luther's responded by calling him an atheist. According to Martin Luther, Erasmus' god did not exist in the Bible. I would have to agree and therefore take a stand for the Word of God and call Chuck Baldwin an atheist because the god he preaches, I could find in Scriptures.

    Montanaguy, I am not trying to offend you; however, I must speak out in defense of the Word of God. Please understand I am only sharing the Word of God out of love. Heb 4:12 For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
