    I will say that I think there are some Christians who live deceived in order to hold certain beliefs, and others who are willfully ignorant of the Bible. However, I still believe that they are Christians. I know hardcore conservative Christians, socialist Christians, moderate Christians and others from many different political backgrounds and I believe that they are Christians in their faith.
    Just for the sake of clarification, are we all defining "Christian" as someone who accepts Jesus Christ as the Son of God who was crucified, died, and was resurrected on the third day to pay for the sins of the world and to thus save our souls? Is there more to what "Christian" is than this?

    There isn't a difference even if you capitalize when it comes to a word that isn't meant to be capitalized. Unless someone is trying to emphasize importance or give a snide connotation like a 'tone'

    Why do these threads exist? Jesus said, "Give unto Caesar what is Caesar's. Give unto God what is God's." He didn't care about politics except as they controlled people's relationship with God.

    Yes there is. When you capitalize the "D" in "democratic," it refers to the Democratic Party, not to democracy. Same with "republican" and I would say "communist" too. "Communist" with a capital "C," it means the Communist Party.

    As long as they believe Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and the savior of mankind from their sins, then they are christians. Politics doesn't matter.

    However, a person who says that he is not a religous Christian, but just believes in the values of Christianity is not a Christian.

    Except Marxists were never shy about squabbling over their respective differences and conceptions of a proper Marxist state and what a good Communist should believe.

    You could. However, it is technically correct and relevant in this case. You can be Christian and practice a form of "communism," but being a "Communist" i.e., a member of the Communist Party would pretty much preclude belief in a God. Thus making that person not a Christian.

    Because I have seen the sentiment expressed that people with certain political views cannot be Christian. I wanted to see how popular this type of thing was on this forum.
