You Know Liberals Are Desperate When They Quote the Bible and Believe They Are God’s Earthly Instruments
You know we’re living in a topsy-turvy world when Democrats start quoting the Bible approvingly. It’s straight from an issue of Superman. Bizarro Democrats.
In Bizarro world, everything is the opposite of Superman’s world. In terms of morality, this Bible verse comes to mind:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isa. 5:20)
If a Republican had quoted the Bible, the Left would be screaming the following: “Separation of church and state! Theocracy! Religion and politics don’t mix! Don’t impose your religion on me! Keep your religion off my body!”
Elizabeth Warren referred to Matthew 25 in one of her speeches.
On Wednesday night at the DNC, Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren drew attention to a New Testament passage that has had increasing significance for the Democratic Party: the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25. “‘In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me,’” she said, quoting Jesus. “The passage teaches about God in each of us,” she continued, “that we are bound to each other, and we are called to act — not to sit, not to wait — but to act, all of us together.” (TIME)
Jesus is not addressing the Roman empire or politicians. He is speaking to His disciples. Notice those who are to be recipients of aid: “these my brethren.” Sure enough, soon after the expansion of the church, the early church members voluntary sold some of their property to aid people in need (Acts 2:43-47; 4:32-35).
The people weren’t compelled to sell their property so it could be distributed to those in need. Neither did they appeal to Caesar to establish welfare programs.
A collection was taken up “among the Gentile churches to help Judean believers who were facing harder than usual economic times as a result of a famine during the mid to late 40s [see Acts 11:27-30]. Paul and Barnabas made an initial famine-relief visit to Jerusalem in A.D. 46 and delivered a monetary gift from the church at Antioch (Acts 11:29-30). At that time the Jerusalem church expressed the hope that the believers associated with Paul would continue to remember the Judean believers, which Paul was more than eager to do (Gal 2:10).” (Bible Gateway)
These measures were temporary to meet emergency situations. There’s no indication in the Bible that long-term welfare programs were the norm.
You have to love the chutzpah of the Democrats when they say things like this:
“Elizabeth Warren’s terrific speech last night reaffirmed the vision she shares with President Obama that every American deserves the opportunity to reach our fullest God-given potential,” DNC deputy director of faith outreach Joshua Dickson says. “Her inclusion of Matthew 25: 40 was another reminder of the important role people of faith and faith traditions continue to play in the Democratic Party and reflects the core value that she and the President share.”
For the Democrats, unborn babies don’t deserve “the opportunity to reach [their] fullest God-given potential.”
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ). another Leftist Democrat who ignores the Bible when it comes to subjects like abortion and same-sex sexuality gets all religious and “Bible thumpy” when it came time to attack President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“I’m here to call on folks to understand that in a moral moment, there is no ‘neutral.’ In a moral moment, there is [sic] no ‘bystanders,'” Booker said. “You are either complicit in the evil, you are either contributing to the wrong, or you are fighting against it.”
I agree. There is no neutrality. There are no bystanders when it comes to evil. The Bible clear about these truths, and that would include no neutrality when it comes to passing laws that allow women to kill their unborn children and permit people of the same sex to marry.
“Booker then invoked a scriptural passage, from Psalm 23, saying, ‘Yea, though we [sic] walk through the valley of the shadow of death.’ He went on to say that the United States is currently walking through the valley of the shadow of death and that the Bible does not talk about people sitting or watching on the sidelines in the valley of the shadow of death.”
You bet we’re walking through the shadow of death when more than a million unborn babies are ripped from mothers’ bodies each year in the United States and $500 million is given to Planned Parenthood to finance “the shadow of death.”
Not to be outdone, let’s not forget Congresswoman Maxine Waters, like The Blues Brothers Jake and Elwood, is on a mission from God. speaking during a Sunday appearance at First AME Church in Los Angeles, Waters said, “You’ve gotta know that I’m here to do the work that I was sent to do, and as pastor said to me when I came in this morning, when God sends you to do something, you just do it!” And what did God send Maxine to do? Get Trump!
Meet the New Democrats. The Bible-thumping Immoral Minority.
