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.
I consider it shameful when a 4th of July celebrating the founding of our nation is hijacked by a whore-mongering racist who the entire world knows is an egotistical lying pig driven by greed and controlled by the Kremlin.
What increases the shame is that the Republicans in both the House and the Senate have sold their souls to suck up to this ignorant slob. Refusing to fulfill their oath to support and defend the Constitution paints them as big a bunch of cowardly traitors as the liar-in-chief, himself.
For a whore-mongering coward like weak, little Donny to celebrate the 4th with a military parade is as hypocritical as him hugging the American flag while stomping on the Constitution, or pretending to pray.
The millions of dollars this “reelection campaign event” is going to cost could be better spent on anything we could imagine from veterans care to hunger and homelessness to overcrowded and under-equipped immigration centers to basic infrastructure.
Why do we as citizens have to pay for this lying pig’s masturbatory exercise in pretending to be a strong man? We need to replace those in Congress that still support this traitor with real representatives that support and defend the Constitution.
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…
I am confused by the absolute silence of the pro-life movement concerning the inhumane treatment of infants and children being held in cages on our Southern border. Why are they not expressing their outrage of ripping children away from their parents and family members and caging them in concentration camp like conditions?
Pro-birth does not equate to pro-life. When the pro-lifers remain silent as they watch young children being treated worse than stray dogs and cats it tells me all I need to know about their morality and humanity.
As sad as this seems to be, it is actually worse. Today there would be those in the crowd who would be heckling Jesus and accusing him of socialism, pandering to the poor for votes, and questioning both his ethics and his motives.
And the saddest part is that much (if not most) of this criticism would be coming from those claiming to follow him…right wing evangelicals.
