According to this articles author there are 4 ‘moral’ questions that will pass judgment on American Christians.

 

 

“1. In the midst of a historically horrible refugee crisis, why didn’t you actively pursue helping the poor, the destitute, and those in desperate need?”

 

 

“2. Why didn’t you recognize and fight systemic racism and inequality?”

 

 

“3. Why were you so supportive of national agendas associated with violence, destruction and death?”

 

 

“4. Why did you crave martial, economic and political power when God has already warned you against putting faith in such foolish and temporary things?”

 

 

Well what can I say as one Christian guy?

 

 

“1. In the midst of a historically horrible refugee crisis, why didn’t you actively pursue helping the poor, the destitute, and those in desperate need?”

 

 

Let’s deal with the Scriptures listed first.

 

Matthew 25: 34-40. Please reopen your Bible to Matthew 25:31-46 and learn to Jesus required those who follow his teachings and not your liberal ideologies. It may mean that your own group might just be the ‘goats’ that go into darkness.

 

Many Christians openly give to the homeless and those who in the streets even now who are addicted to illegal drugs. And it is many churches or Christian organizations who help the poor and those who are hurting.

——————————

“2. Why didn’t you recognize and fight systemic racism and inequality?”

 

James 2:1-13. Deals with the subject of the Wealthy verses the poor in those times. It was a reminder that the wealthy Jews or Gentiles caused trouble in the house churches in and around Israel when this was written.

 

Now. Many State Governments and local Churches have welcomed multitudes of immigrants from many Nations. The present problem has been islamic attacks here in the USA have been down by those who are either naturalized or immigrant moslems. Can you distinguish between the two groups? No? Neither can I. It is better to figure out who is sent here to further jihad verses those who are running from the hells that islam has created in Iraq, Syria and so forth.

 

Proverbs 17:15. How are American Christians justifying the evils done in the name of islam?

 

1 John 2:9. If you actually knew the Bible you would realize that these Scriptures deal with 1 John 1:5-10 to 1 John 2:1-11 dealing with fellow believers not those outside of the Faith.

 

I can think of many groups and individuals who are helping the poor in many states. But you aren’t thinking of them you are thinking of your liberal ideology.

 

AS for racism and similar subjects. Why is it the obamas ‘blm’ and similar black power groups are the trouble makers on American streets creating a racial rift in the USA that did not exist until he got into office. After all by the year 2000 racism was mostly dead until all the rioting and madness started by such groups within 2016.

 

But I digress.

—————————————

“3. Why were you so supportive of national agendas associated with violence, destruction and death?”

 

Matt. 26:52-54.

Please re-read Matthew 26:47-58 Jesus is arrested. Does this mean we as American Christians are to protest and to be martyred for a fragile peace that is not Godly peace but a fake peace offered by YOUR LIBERAL government to those who seek jihad and sharia law in the Middle East where your hilariously liberal ideologies would be massacred along with your lgbt allies?

 

It was Jesus who for warned Ancient & Modern Christians that war was going to be continuing for centuries. See Matthew 24:1-51.

 

Psalm 11:5. Who is the wicked here?

 

Please read:

 

Psalm 10:1-18

 

Psalm 11:1-7

 

Psalm 14:1-7

 

It is those within your own ideology and philosophy.

————————————

 

“4. Why did you crave martial, economic and political power when God has already warned you against putting faith in such foolish and temporary things?”

 

 

Matthew 16:26:

 

Again with the segmented gospel.

 

Read Matthew 16:21-28

 

Please notice the following paragraphs from this section.

 

” Do you not trust in God’s sovereignty that you must devote all of your time, energy, and resources into supporting a candidate, a political party, and making sure you’re pursuing more wealth, fortune, protection, and influence?”

 

“You boasted of a countercultural gospel and yet fell into the same pitfalls of countless civilizations before you: a desire for carnal power, personal safety, comfort, luxury, fame, and wealth.”

 

“You divisively judged, shamed, alienated, hurt, slandered, and attacked others under the banner of “Christian morals,” all in an effort to gain additional political clout and control.”

 

“Have you lost so must faith in God’s promises that you’ve abandoned the ways of Jesus for the ways of a worldly empire? Are you so ashamed of identifying with a Divine God who died on a cross that you would rather align yourselves with oppressors, war-mongers, and corrupt rulers?”

 

Whom in the American church is ‘wealthy’, ‘powerful’, ‘influential’?

Whom in the American church has ‘luxury’, ‘power’, ‘political clout’?

 

Isn’t it the democratic party / liberal / progress – socialist ‘christian’ that has obtained as much of the same as you? In the last 8 years it was the democratic party in charge of the law system and government of the USA and for what? To make America a liberal sewer. And it is many false christians like yourselves who claim that it is Gods will to destroy America for your ‘tolerance’, pro lgbt and so forth.

 

How ironic. 1 Peter 2:11-12:

 

Please read 1 Peter 2:1-25

2 Peter 2:1-22

1 John 4:1-21

 

In other words if you were TRUE Christians the whole of your liberal ideology / philosophy would be rejected and you would seek the Jewish Jesus who fulfilled the Law of Moses. The very law who allowed gay men and lesbians to be killed within ancient Israel. But speaking as one of many false teachers you speak not for God but for your ‘progressive / leftist’ doctrines and not that of Jesus.

 

 

And yet these questions aren’t about Jesus they are claim to be seeking. It’s about:

 

” social justice”

 

Examples from their website:

 

” Our Mission”

 

“The mission of Sojourners is to articulate the biblical call to social justice, to inspire hope and build a movement to transform individuals, communities, the church, and the world.”

 

“Our Vision”

 

“We envision a future in which Christians put their faith into action in the passionate pursuit of social justice, peace, and environmental stewardship, working in partnership with people of other perspectives, for the common good of communities, families and individuals. We articulate that vision, convene and mobilize constituencies, and build alliances for effective advocacy.”

And yet these examples are what REAL ‘social justice’ is about:

 

 

“What is Social Justice? Matthew Robinson, PhD”

 

“Social justice is defined as “… promoting a just society by challenging injustice and valuing diversity.” It exists when “all people share a common humanity and therefore have a right to equitable treatment, support for their human rights, and a fair allocation of community resources.” In conditions of social justice, people are “not be discriminated against, nor their welfare and well-being constrained or prejudiced on the basis of gender, sexuality, religion, political affiliations, age, race, belief, disability, location, social class, socioeconomic circumstances, or other characteristic of background or group membership” (Toowoomba Catholic Education, 2006).”

————————————–

“What is Social Justice?”

 

“Social justice embodies the vision of a society that is equitable and in which all members are physically and psychologically safe.* Social justice also demands that all people have a right to basic human dignity and to have their basic economic needs met. Our commitment to social justice recognizes that health is affected by a host of social factors. It is not possible to address trauma and violence without also wrestling with poverty, racism, sexism, classism, homophobia and all other forms of stigma. Because of this, we cannot ignore deep seated inequalities as we seek answers to problems like violence and trauma. Rather, we must struggle with these problems clearly and honestly.”

 

“*From: Barry S. Levy and Victor Sidel. The nature of social injustice and its impact on public health, p.8. In: Social Injustice and Public Health, Barry S. Levy and Victor Sidel, editors. Oxford Press, 2006, 529 pp.”

So it is not about Christian churches and organizations who are to follow the teachings of Jesus and the Disciples in the Holy Bible. Instead it is following the leftist doctrinal foolishness that has not produced anything but anger, hatred and separation within the boundaries of the USA and other countries.

 

Such a waste of time and energy.

 

It is better for those who are double minded to cease doing so and to follow Jesus the only one who can heal, save souls and lead this world into Gods eternal kingdom.
