5 Questions to Ask to Spot a Fake Christian
1. Are they controlled by the Holy Spirit?
When you received Christ, the Holy Spirit came and began living inside of you. Walking in the flesh instead of the Spirit can be a tell-tale sign that something fishy is going on (Galatians 5:16-18).
2. Do they have a new nature?
When you are born again, you become a new creation with new desires, a new mind, and new heart. If there isn’t evidence of any of these then,“Houston, we’ve got a problem!”
3. Do they have Christ’s agape love for others?
By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.
The Bottom Line: No love, no Christ, yes love, yes Christ…
4. Do they obey God’s Commandments?
Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.
-1 John 2:3
5. Are they becoming more like Jesus?
The true markings of a Christian is that he or she is becoming like their Master. If someone isn’t becoming more like Jesus, then chances are they are not a follower of Jesus.

What you fail to grasp (imagine that) is that lessening the dependence on coal-fired electricity will not only be a government change, but a consumer change. Once the costs for solar power equipment comes down to a certain range, more and more will be installed by homeowners and businesses. Why? Because they'll be saving money. Yes, it will be an investment. But just like putting adequate insulation into a new home or business has a cost factor, it's routinely done because the benefits far outweigh the costs.
Naturally, solar panels on a person's house or business won't provide enough electricity for complete reliance. You and all kindergarten kids (same level of intelligence) know that it sometimes rains and the sun doesn't shine at night. But at least the kindergarten kids, with some instruction, can understand that more electric energy is consumed during the daytime hours - people at work, air conditioning load, etc. So solar will increasingly be able to help reduce the need for some coal-fired electric generation. And to boot, will reduce a consumer's electric costs. Depending on how much solar power a system generates, some will be sold back to the grid.
It all comes down to less money in the coal baron's pocket and more money in the little man's... and that's not a bad thing.(Oh, yeah, and less nasty pollution.)

Not Jemima, but will try to answer part of your questions. First, there are probably more democrats that are Christian than republicans. Baby killing? You seem to be referring to legal abortions, well, even if that is wrong, you don't seem to have any problem with Israeli soldiers killing little arab kids. Who really cares about same sex marriage? And is welfare really affecting your standard of living ?

A kindergartner's view of energy. You will retire those solar panels long before you will break even. Clean coal technology exists despite the lies from the progressives that have only the destruction of the US economy as a goal.

Since I can't call you a liar, I will point out that you are either lying or don't have a clue to what Christianity is.
#53879 Aug 17, 2014
Again you know nothing of me. I hate no one, but I hate lies.
I can separate the lies from the deliverer of lies.

A fake Christian or an imperfect Christian? The above are all good and will appear as fruit of a follower.

Why would a middle-class progressive, working hard, raising his family want the destruction of the U.S. economy? Wouldn't that make their life harder?
They weren't very happy when the last REPUBLICAN president we had in office REALLY DID DESTROY THE ECONOMY. They were pretty p.o.'d about it, really.
Clearly your assertion that " progressives that have only the destruction of the US economy as a goal" is nothing more than simple-minded babble.

No, it doesn't. The term "clean coal" is a misnomer. It describes technology to reduce carbon emmissions, but it is not even CLOSE to clean.
Clean coal is a concept for processes or approaches that mitigate emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases that arise from the utilization of coal, mainly for electrical power generation, using clean coal technology. Currently, the term clean coal is used in the coal industry primarily in reference to carbon capture and storage, which pumps and stores CO2 emissions underground, and plants using integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC). IGCC involves coal gasification, which provides a basis for increased efficiency and lower cost in capturing CO2 emissions. Prior to the current focus on carbon capture and storage, the term clean coal had been used to refer to technologies for reducing emissions of NOx, sulfur, and heavy metals from coal combustion.
Within the United States, Carbon Capture and storage technologies are mainly being developed in response to regulations by the Environmental Protection Agency—most notably the Clean Air Act—and in anticipation of legislation that seeks to mitigate climate change
AND --- those measures described as clean coal put for by the EPA are being attacked relentlessly by Big Coal, Big Oil, and the Republicans.
That is PRECISELY why they want to abolish the EPA and render Obama and the Democrats as powerless as they can. The coal companies don't want lost revenues through regulations, or from a shift to green power.
Coal is precisely why the world is in the shape it is in today, and a Republican Vote is a vote for pollution and big-coal profits and environmental destruction.
Speaking of kindergarden views - yours qualifies. You'd almost think you were ingesting juvenille trash like Rush, and Fox News and Breitbart - and NOBODY that's sane takes those views seriously.
So you must have been kidding about those statements you made, right?

Opinions vary cupcake.

I'm not one to get into a discussion of religion one way or another, but I personally am quite of fan of articulately crafted words and logic.
But let me ask you this: Imperfect Christian? Couldn't Satin himself in the true fire and brimstone sense also be described as this?
It's a useless term from a linguistical and logical point of view.
#53885 Aug 17, 2014
My opinion is that your response was a complete "non-response" Froot-Loop.
#53886 Aug 17, 2014
Sorry but your one sided rant and playbook from the hate America crowd and do everything possible to bring America to the level of a third world country ain't gettin' it.
Cloaking a perverse agenda in green doesn't make it true or even desirable.
#53887 Aug 17, 2014
Hardly. Satan opposes Christ. A Christian accepts Christ and tries to follow. We are told to work out our salvation with fear and trembling.
There was a perfect man, being Jesus Christ. We all fall short and are in need of a Savior.
#53888 Aug 17, 2014
Why can't you call me a liar? Would that be a sin according to your 'good book'- I am a Christian and an American and I think that you are big liar and a big bullshitter! See if you can find that one in the old testament !
#53889 Aug 17, 2014
You made the claim that there is clean coal energy.
I disputed that claim, as clearly no such technology exists in our universe.
Your hate-filled words have done nothing to uphold your erroneous claim that "clean coal" exists.
You are wrong. Try learning from it, instead of puffing out your chest and mouthing-off babble.

Couldn't the old Master of Hell, also just be "less then perfect"? Couldn't Hitler himself be described as an "imperfect christian", he's just not quite there yet?
Where does the line get drawn? And who gets to draw it?

Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy.
Jesus came to save mankind that none should perish, but should have eternal life.
Jesus welcomes us as the Father welcomed the prodigal son; when we were far off.
Our enemy Satan, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Jesus said, " Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
#53892 Aug 17, 2014
Those are questions best left between you and the lover of your soul. God draws the line.

Let's see - Democrats:
1. Want equal access to affordable health-care for all citizens.
2. Want middle-class rages to rise when the those at the top are making fortunes off of their labor.
3. Want education standards to increase.
4. Want people down on their luck for whatever reason to get some assistance in our society.
5.... And on..and on..and on..
But republicans DON'T want those things. In fact, they are throwing quite a collective hissy-fit for the last 6 years to prevent them from happening.
Who wants a third-world nation?
Or are you just kidding again - pretending that the "entertainment" crap heard on Breitbart and from Rush Limbaugh and from Fox "News" are actually real? If so - you've got quite a sense of humor! Way to stay in character!
Why do you consider it "perverse" to pursue a world with less pollution? Given that an overwhelmingly vast majority of legitimate scientists in the world, the best and most qualified minds the human species has, can show a trend towards global warming caused by man-made greenhouse emissions....
Isn't it perverse to NOT want to change our habits to avoid the suffering and devastation that will result?
Just using logic here. Let's see if you can use some.
You're scoring nothing today. You really should have spent more time listening to those leather-patch wearing intellectuals that you despise so much. Tell the truth - you hate people that are smarter than you, don't you?
