Conservative vs. Liberal

In the Christian Church world the terms Conservative and Liberal are used apart from anything political. Every denomination and Christian group can be put on a line representing their position in relationship to others. The right side of the line would be the designated place for Conservatives and the left for Liberals. Some denominations and groups would be clear over to the right and some way over on the left and many scattered everywhere in between.

The most basic definition of a Conservative Christian is one who believes that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God in its original manuscripts and is our sole authority on who God is, how we can know Him and live with Him eternally, how we should live in this life, what is truth, what is false, what is right and what is wrong. The Bible is our sole authority and the only source of real truth. Approximately 35 different authors wrote the Bible over about 1,500 years. Conservative Christians believe that God the Holy Spirit ”inspired” each man as he wrote, allowing for each man’s personality, style of writing, and vocabulary to shine through so that the words are the very words of God, the mind of Christ spoken through and written by a flesh and blood man.

Liberals believe that the Bible does have errors in it, that God’s inspiration is much more general than specific in it’s content, that much of the instruction on how to live does not apply to today because the world and people have changed so much since the Bible was written, and that it is a source of truth amount many other sources.

Conservative Christians will spend much time in their gatherings and services, teaching the content of the Bible so that people know how to love God and love people in truth.

Conservative Christians are generally conservative politically because what God says is right and wrong in the Bible is generally what those who are conservative politically would hold too as well. The biggest issue is abortion. The Bible clearly teaches that life begins at conception, with Jesus Christ Himself being the main proof.

Luke 1:35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God.

Abortion is murder in the eyes of God, and approximately 2,000 abortions are performed every single day in the United States in the name of personal rights.

I am a very strong, far-right conservative in my belief that Bible is the ”Holy Bible”, the living Word of God. I am also a strong, far-right conservative politically because I believe that abortion is wrong, evil, murder in the first degree.
