Newt Gingrich Christian

Newt Gingrich - Christian

Newt Gingrich Christian(continued from Newt Gingrich wife)

To conclude, had Newt Gingrich been a Christian at his baptism (see Newt Gingrich religion) at St. Charles Baptist Church in the late 1960s, he would not have converted to Roman Catholicism in 2009, for Jesus said:

"My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand." (John 10:27-28)

While Newt Gingrich may sincerely believe he is Christian, his earlier words (see Newt Gingrich wife) offer no sign of repentance or of being born again, and he now believes a man to be his "Holy Father." Someone as intelligent as Newt Gingrich believing that he is Christian without actually being one re-affirms the fact that faith is a gift from God:

"For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast." (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Newt Gingrich knows Washington, excels in the game of politics and has the experience, knowledge and intellect to be a formidable foe when seated across from Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin or the next President of China.

Newt Gingrich is a calculating Machiavellian whom the voters ultimately should trust as much as his first, second or the current wife should trust, and he ultimately will fail to resolve the problems facing America (see America In Decline).

Newt Gingrich is not the Christian President that America needs to elect, but in a candidate field which unlike its 2008 counterpart, is devoid of a Christian who demonstrates reliance on Christ (see Presidential Candidates), he will still be a better choice for President than Mitt Romney (see Mormon president).

Our rating of Newt Gingrich's presidential candidacy is a reluctant C+.
