I would like to respond point by point
Okay bear with me here this is a topic that I have long mulled over and don't understand where the right comes from here. They seem to be totally
lost and backwards in their thinking. Simply because they are in direct opposition of Christ with their attitudes and their supposed actions (This is
only considering the right Christians which seems to be what most of the right are)
Most of them say they follow Christ's teaching, but if you explore the very life of him, you see that he is a Socialist and Idealist, he believed in
redemption for all( The only that would be redeemed is those who excepted him as the savior period)
, if they were to change their ways, in fact the only thing he was against wholeheartedly was the banking system back then, he even overturned
their collection tables and called it usury.
In correct, he was angered that the money lenders and merchants used God's Holy place as a market.
Today the right glorifies the banking system. (Irrelevant the Jews, Muslims and Atheisist do also)
Also he died so that all would receive redemption and salvation that means even the gays and even the women that had abortions, if they only accept
him and ask for forgiveness in his name.
But the right want to legislate the hell out of morality (God and Jesus must be something a person seeks out for oneself, NOT to be legislated but let
the usurers rape and gouge the people of everything they need?). This is what I have observed.
But He himself says that the people must come to him of their own free will. So even if someone doesn't accept him as the savior until their
deathbed that they still have a path to redemption if they accept him on their deathbed. He even gave a prostitute forgiveness. He said the meek shall
inherit the earth, not someone who hoarded money on the falseness of "Personal Responsibility"
Jesus message was not anti rich, but give to others per God's will and much will be given to you. This includes titheing, not only giving God your
first 10% it doesn't apply onlty to money, your time or "stuff" you no longer need.
personal responsibility quite frankly, in my eyes is watch what you do, not what the heck the Jones' do and judge not, lest ye be judged yourselves,
So why in God's name do these rightists want to go telling everybody what to do and how to live their lives?
Jesus and God demand that we live our lives according to their rules, period simple to understand
What is so hard to understand about his teachings from people who say they live as a follower of Jesus, when a PAGAN can understand it better? It
isn't hard really, it's very simple.
This is just stuff I got from watching The Bible on the History Channel (NOT BY CHOICE) and I am just left scratching my head. Am I the only one that
thinks that the right are at odds with their beliefs and their actions?
Try reading the Bible for yourself, find some good reference materials and you will be enlightened.
