A simple question here not in the attempts to troll or cause any flaming, but a legitimate wonder. I can never get my family who is glued to Fox news
to ever give me a solid answer to this so lets try it out shall we? Republicans are greatly concerned with keeping their wealth, keeping their stuff,
keeping everybody else out (ie. Immigrants wanting to come into the country) Yet the the Right claims to be the Christian side as opposed to the Left.
"God's own party."
Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. - Luke 17:33 NIV
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal - Matthew 6:19 NIV
Then Jesus said to them, "Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions." -
Luke 12:15 NIV
Do not mistreat or oppress a foreigner, for you were foreigners in Egypt. - Exodus 22:21 NIV
Whoever oppresses the poor to increase his own wealth, or gives to the rich, will only come to poverty. - Proverbs 22:16 ESV
I could keep going with these verses all day long, but all I am finding is that the Bible, in which the Right thinks they own, speaks against the very
policies and ideologies that the Bible teaches. I am not saying the Left is Jesus' choice if He were forced to vote red or blue, but I am saying He
wouldn't vote red. Even with the scriptural rebuttals to the Left's ideologies, the Right's ideology is very much contradictory from a scriptural
Let's hear some well thought out replies, not looking for a flame war but legitimate answers.
