Another Unionist Party?

Ex-DUP Jim Allister MEP is predicting a new Unionist party will emerge but he is undecided if he will accept the leadership of such a party.

    alan millar asks, Could I as a Christian vote for a party who will put Terrorists in Government?

    alan , where in the New testament does it say one sin is worse than another?
    Sin is Sin, how can you vote for any party as all have sinned and come sort of the glory of god

    You are making your own judgements of what is a good, bad, or indifferent sin

    No more offensive than you labelling pretty much all Catholics as terrorist supporters so I’m not withdrawing anything. –

    Of course they are , they vote for catholic terrorists in every election while protestants reject loyalist terrorists.

    Observer – “Of course they are , they vote for catholic terrorists in every election while protestants reject loyalist terrorists.”

    You mean apart from Bill Craig “it will be our duty to liquidate the enemy” or Ian Paisley?
    Cant wait til Gerry is 80 – all past transgressions will be wiped away – and anyone who votes for him will be absolved.

    Doire, ?
    lets try to be real about this, you seem to have missed the point of myself and indeed the whole Magherafelt branch of the DUP being ‘closed’
    1. You ask if I am the same Miller who was happy to stand for the DUP? to this I will answer YES, for at that time the DUP were against putting Terrorists into the Government of Northern Ireland, If this was still the case I would still be a supporter of them!
    2. You then ask if I can be a Christian “if I accuse my minister of not preaching the gospel” How do you Know who my Minister is? and when did I accuse him of not preaching the Gospel and to whom?

    We then get this crazy statement from you!!!

    “Shame on you especially when these are what you would term fellow brothers and sister in the Lord”.
    I do still call most of the DUP members in Mid-Ulster my brothers and sisters in the LORD. This does not mean that I must agree with everything that they say. Did Paul and Peter not have disagreement which has been recorded in the Word of God?

    When and if yoy reply to this will you please tell me who I have Harassed in the Media?

    And on the point of COURAGE AND SPEAKING FACE TO FACE you are the one who is hiding their identity on the very forum that you use to attack me! But let me turn that on you! and if you are still to COWARDLY to reveal who you are you can do it by private email.
    I look forward to hearing from you DOIRE, when/if you reveal you true identity we could meet for a cup of coffee a take look at the great fall of the DUP; debate the pros & cons of putting terrorists into Government.

    Regards Alan

    When did I say one sin is worse than another?

    And yes all have sinned and come sort of the glory of god. However anyone who has put their trust in the FINISHED WORK OF JESUS ON THE CROSS HAVE HAD THEIR SINS FORGIVE; And the Word of GOD tells us not to be unequally yoked with unbelievers it also asks “what fellowship hath Light with Darkness”

    I must also agree with you when you say that “Sin is Sin”
    I am a sinner but Glory to GOD those sins have been dealt with and I have been washed in the Blood of the Lamb,
    No church could do it!
    No works by me could do it! and yet the great news to a lost world is that by putting a simple faith in what the Lord Jesus has done we can have fellowship with the LORD of LORDS and KING OF KINGS!
    We can be saved!
    We can be changed!
    We can face life and death knowing that this world is but a blink and that WE WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN GLORY WITH THE LORD.

    alan you said, Could I as a Christian vote for a party who will put Terrorists in Government?
    you also agreed, that sin is sin

    so in the eyes of God , what difference is there voting for someone who isnt / wasnt a terrorist but unsaved.

    They are allsinners , you are just judging one to be worse than the other

    Another party? Are Unionists a bunch of electoral masochists or something?

    You are the one trying to spin this by saying i am peddling rumours. You happened to ignore my point that i heard him say this as well, as i was present also.

    You also said he wouldn’t support it over the summer, exactly he was happy for it to come at the Autumn
