I am no expert Christian. I go to a non-denominational church where they believe there is no such thing as 'church doctrine' - there is only God's doctrine. The Bible says what it means, and means what it says. The bible is not a living document to be edited by anyone who feels the need to do so. This makes sense to me, in light of what I have seen zealots do in the name of God or any number of other "causes".
One of the things I struggle with is that the bible tells us not to judge lest we be judged. And yet, it does recognize and encourage adherents to show good judgement.
I guess Squishey Pants Biden is a good Christian - and believe it or else, because it is right from the horse's mouth.
When I started going to church I just showed up with my wife one day and I knew I was where I was supposed to be. I would not want to be a Catholic wrestling with my conscience right now.
