Islam should not be debated on the campaign trail because our Constitution prohibits a "religious test" for office. But Islamism should be debated because Islamism is a "kingdom of this world" political as well as a religious system.

The role of the church in politics will continue to be debated in 2011 as evangelical Christians, especially, look for a Republican candidate who can best advance their agenda.

The separation claim by Coons and others is to prevent seriously religious people (meaning pro-life, pro-opposite sex marriage, etc) from full participation in our nation's political life, as if the source of their beliefs make their ideas illegitimate.

"God helps those who help themselves" has long been one of those sayings misinformed people think is in the Bible. Sadly, too many people who claim to believe in God think it is part of Scripture. Their ignorance about such ultimate issues is exposed in the latest survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

Our enemies are using our Constitution and religious pluralism against us. They have a plan to infiltrate us, build mosques and ultimately impose Sharia Law. They say so. They mean so. People who are in denial about this are dupes and self-deluded.

"Be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" is among the verses Paul wrote about what happens when Christ is in you. Conforming people to a set of rules is what the Pharisees (and the modern Taliban) sought to do. Thinking and living differently to please God is what Christ does when He lives in a person.

It's true. All "religions" are the same. They are attempts by Man to earn the favor of God through human effort. But unique among faiths is the relationship that Jesus of Nazareth came to re-establish between sinful Man and a Holy God.

Conservatives present a half-empty gospel when they share their faith, but do not perform good works in order to demonstrate their faith is real. Liberals are equally in error when they present a half-empty gospel of calling upon government to do more, but failing to share the gospel of God's love in Jesus Christ.

Islam makes no accommodation for those of other faiths, or no faith, as America does. Any diplomatic "outreach" must understand this truth. It must also include at least some common principles in order for that outreach to produce objectives in the best interests of the nations involved, most especially the United States.

God's standard of goodness is vertical and unapproachable in our own strength. He is "high and lifted up" as Isaiah saw Him. By His standard, all of us fall far short. "There is no one who is righteous, no not one." (Paul the Apostle). And similarly, our righteousness before God is like filthy rags.

Look for pastor Rick Warren and a new generation of ministers to be less against and more for things and people.
