Fred Thompson talks about his faith

CNN reports about Fred Thompson speaking about his religion. It seems all the Republicans get asked about this. One thing that Fred said stuck in my mind. I underlined the troubling part.

"I have no apologies to make about my religion or my relationship to Jesus Christ or God."

Interesting reply for a Christian. I am not attacking Fred's faith, but that was a terrible answer. If you Google "Jesus Christ or God" here is what you get.

Did you mean: Jesus Christ our God.

A Christian knows there is a big difference in the words "or" and "our".  Fred should not talk about his religion anymore.

Blogger Virginian for FDT said ... (11:16 PM) : 

In defense of Fred:
Although FDT may not attend Church every Sunday, I think you may be generalizng "Christianity" as only your view of it.

Specifically, I personally believe in the Father, Son "and" the Holy Spirit, the Trinitarian faith. In this sense, I am not referring to one Supreme Holy being with three offices or faces.

Under the theory of modalism,
there is only one person in the Godhead, it calls into question passages which show Jesus talking to his Father (e.g., John 17), or declaring he is going to be with the Father (John 14:12, 28, 16:10) One role of a person cannot go to be with another role of that person, or say that the two of them will send the Holy Spirit while they remain in heaven (John 14:16-17, 26, 15:26, 16:13–15; Acts 2:32–33).

I believe the Bible depicts the Son as having his identity as the Son before his incarnation. In 1 John 4:9 we read, that "the love of God was made manifest among us [in] that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him." Thus, the second person of the Trinity was already the Son when he was sent into the world.

The same truth is taught under a different analogy in John 1:1,14 where we read, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. . . . And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us." Here the Word (i.e., the second person of the Trinity) is pictured as having his identity as the Word from all eternity. Thus, from all eternity the Word of God proceeded from God, just as speech proceeds from a speaker; similarly,
a Son proceeds from his Father. Under both analogies, whether as the Son of God or the Word of God, the second person of the Trinity is depicted as eternally proceeding from the first person of the Trinity.

and yes, I am Catholic and recognize that FDT is not, but my point is that Christianty and Faith are big concepts that I do not believe we should bash each other with just because our perspective or belief is a little different from others.

Not a sermon, just somethng to think about.
