We are living in an age where our every word, our every action, must clearly demonstrate our faithfulness to Jesus Christ. This constant and consistent demonstration of discipleship includes using the gift of our citizenship to live an intentional lifestyle of love and compassion. That means we must use our opportunity to vote to stand up for the true values of the Gospel.
We must vote. And we must vote for love and compassion.
Authentic Christian spirituality is demonstrated by our actions. A caring and compassionate response to those in need reflects the love of Christ.
A response to those in need based in fear, selfishness, greed and racial bigotry does not demonstrate God’s grace and mercy. These are not Christian values, nor is violence, especially directed toward the poor and the suffering.
Getting real means adopting a lifestyle of faithfulness to the Gospel. Real Christianity requires a radical discipleship to Jesus Christ that demonstrates His love and grace in all relationships and in our every action. And this is especially true in regard to how we treat the least of these among us.
Authentic spirituality has little or nothing to do with what we profess to believe. It, however, has everything to do with how we live our daily lives and how we treat the least of these among us.
If you have the opportunity to share this with right wing evangelicals it would be considered an act of grace…
I think it would be wonderful if some of the Right Wing Evangelical leaders (like Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham) would explain this passage to our racist, whore mongering liar-in-chief…
Wait. I guess someone would have to show the passage to them first. They must have also never seen it…but, surely it is in their Bibles…
It is well known and documented that our lying pig of a president is a cheater (in every sense of the word). He is so obsessed with winning that he will stop at nothing to come out on top. His cheating at golf is known to all and makes him a total laughing stock among those that play the game.
What makes this cartoon even more poignant is that it is too close to the truth to be funny. The Canadian cartoonist who penned it was fired the day after it was published. The truth hurts.
Our liar-in-chief is too big a racist to ever be polite or thoughtful enough to ask a drowned asylum seeker if he could play through. He would use them for a better lie, or (as is his normally practice), ignore the bodies as not important enough to interrupt his pathetic game.
His lack of compassion and morality reduces him to a sad figure lacking the necessary empathy for even basic humanity. The true shame, however, is not his anymore. Instead, it falls on every single House and Senate Republican that supports and protects him. They need to be legally removed from office as fast as he does.
