The Good News is not that complicated. That is why there are no more real christian teachers after Billy Graham retired. Not even his son. The churches have become the pharisees and sadducees of Jesus' time. Legalists.

That's fine, I can appreciate what you are saying. I will not say that all Christendom today manifests as the perfect vessel for Christ's teaching. I am not in an orthodox or denominational church myself, although I have been to Catholic mostly while my son was growing up.
But that is not an excuse for the abject hatred of all Christians expressed here. Although Im not quite sure what people are saying is complicated or not complicated. It was the saduccees and Pharisees who condemned Jesus because he was a challenge and a threat to their power base. But that still does not mean that He stands for some kind of socialized worldview as even now Bernie is claiming....and I will have to refrain from speaking publicly what I think about his using that modus operandi for votes. It's disgusting to say the least.

I think the Beatitudes he taught are a socialized theme of love. And how do you spin that the greatest commandment is to Love God and the next greatest commandment is to love each other. It is that word that got Jesus killed. Love.

Loving each other does not mean socialism. You might have been getting overdosed on "Christian Socialism". Marxism has infiltrated the Church decades ago. And the World Council of Churches is the religious side of the UN Totalitarian One World Government, it is sanitized and pc.
Also the OP has stated that are not Christians if we do not acquiesce to his exact terms and conditions, which any reasonable person may recognize as incredibly myopic.

Yeah! Because, the US has let in 1,500 people who are refugees!

Lucky them!!. Right?

Refugee crisis: Pressure builds for U.S. to welcome more Syrians


How the U.S. fares
So far, the U.S. has accepted 1,500 Syrian refugees. By contrast, Germany said it will take in 800,000 migrants in the current refugee crisis. Several other countries, such as Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon, have each taken in hundreds of thousands of Syrians.

The International Rescue Committee called for the United States to open its doors to 65,000 Syrian refugees.

An online petition asking the U.S. government to do exactly that has garnered more than 54,000 signatures.

"The U.S. has historically been the world leader in recognizing the moral obligation to resettle refugees," International Rescue Committee president and CEO David Milliband said.

"But in the four years of the Syria crisis, there has been inertia rather than leadership."


I bet Jesus is so proud............

Well, I guess, in the end we will all find out if Jesus meant it your way or his way. But, for myself, I think I will believe the words of Jesus.

But there are some teachings strictly for Israel


Hospitality isn't one of them.


Matthew 25:35
For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.


You don't get be like "Sodom" just because you're not "Israel".


Ezekiel 16:49
Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.



Luke 10;10
But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.





Matthew scriptures are for Israel Historically not for the church today. Sodom is the sister of Israel via Lot. and again the scriptures in Luke are for the 12 to 70 disciples at that historical time when they were sent out not for the church today.

All Christians like Israel should be hospitable but there is a limit to hospitality.

the US has let in over 11 million illegal migrants since 2008 they are from South and Central American, South East and South Asia, and Middle Eastern countries.

No more can come in without upsetting the current population.

It's sad that these types are the more vocal of the group that call themselves Christians. I know many Christians that would hang their heads in shame to be associated with such divisiveness. There are Christians whose lives demonstrate hope, peace and charity with ease, I live and work with them. There are also Christians, that I live and work with who are steeped in bad mental habits, but relent and self correct, or at least try to, when called out by their peers.

(PS: I'm the Treasurer of an HOA that represents over 600 senior citizen homeowners, predominately Christian, so I know of what I speak. )

Divisiveness is the key

2 timothy 2:15 Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed rightly DIVIDING the word of truth.

God's own word requires we be divisive with his word when we study. If not we blend it all together and make a hodgepodge of what a man thinks it is, says or means.

rightly divide not wrongly join the scriptures

A good Christian doesn't mean to use words like CR4P. those types of words are not in a normal Christian vocabulary.

I will tell you what, do you really believe all those scriptures are for us today?

Then give me your house and loan me $5,000. Because the scriptures say you are to not deny me what I ask.

Matthew 5:42 Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

Luke 6:30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

Uh, no. Post your source, please.
Here's mine, to refute your 'numbers':


a new analysis by the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew Research Center, which builds on previous work estimating the size and growth of the U.S. unauthorized immigrant population.

A 2008 report by the Center estimated that 11.9 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the United States; it concluded that the undocumented immigrant population grew rapidly from 1990 to 2006 but has since stabilized.1

In this new analysis, the Center estimates that the rapid growth of unauthorized immigrant workers also has halted; it finds that there were 8.3 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. labor force in March 2008.

You haven't shown yourself to be approved by God. You're just another hack claiming your self righteousness allows to condemn your fellow brothers and sisters.

You are no better than some misguided congregant of the Westboro Baptist Church. PLEASE...don't call yourself a Christian........it's just embarrassing to people who take Christian values to heart....whether they believe Jesus died for their sins, or not.

Why are you being so JUDGEMENTAL.

I don't know about judgmental Chrsitians like yourself.

Judge not less thee be judged.

You are so quick to judge others with an unrighteous judgement but take no judgement of yourself.

Then again maybe your not a Christian so it is ok for you to be so judgemental while crying that I am.

you are a Hypocrite to the enth degree.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit--fruit that will last--and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.


I've made my plea to your God. So, if he's real, you should be getting everything soon, if you don't already have it. If you don't, it's your own faith that is lacking, my friend.
