As I read the news this morning on CNN, MSNBC and Yahoo I find it interesting that Ben Carson a profess Christian, would make such a statement “No Muslim as President” about Muslims.
While Muslims and Christians have their differences, Carson cannot included one group and not the other. Some may argue that since America was built on Christian values, Christians can be presidents however today we find that America has removed most if not all its Christian values. As a result Ben Carson needs to include both faiths in his statement because to run America now as a Christian will mean you have to go against your beliefs just as much as a Muslim.
There is a large vineyard to be cultivated; but while Christians are to work among unbelievers, they are not to appear like worldliness.Be as firm as a rock. Be not partakers of other men’s sins. Acts of dishonesty in business deal, with believers or unbelievers, should be reproved; and if they give no evidence of reformation, come out from among them and be separate. There is a large vineyard to be cultivated; but while Christians are to work among unbelievers, they are not to appear like worldliness. They are not to spend their time talking politics or acting as politicians; for by so doing, they give the enemy opportunity to come in and cause variance and discord. Those in the ministry who desire to stand as politicians should have their credentials taken from them; for this work God has not given to high or low among His people. God calls upon all who minister in doctrine to give the trumpet a certain sound. All who have received Christ, ministers and lay members, are to arise and shine; for great peril is right upon us. Satan is stirring the powers of earth. Everything in the world is in confusion.
