The Bible and the church are two entirely different things, one being the Word of God, the other a man-made construct. That would be like swearing off Christianity because of a bunch of pederast catholic priests. Just because some so-called "Christians" do not adhere to "The Word" does not make "The Word" any less valid, does it? Lets not throw the baby out with the bathwater eh? The man did what he thought was he's paying the price for it! That should satisfy those of you who believe he is a criminal. For the rest of us, it just goes to show how far we have fallen. God save the judge!
I agree with what you have said who heartedly.

My point is that Isaac is claiming that those of us who choose the law over religion are, in essence, promoting Socialism. That's not only false, it's propaganda as well, and that type of propaganda is what's driving people away from the church.

Do I have data to prove that? Not handy, but if you believe it's false, then why make a statement like "how far we have fallen"?
