Jesus said blessed are the poor, and the meek, and the peacemakers, and on and on. He taught that even a lowlife scum like a Samaritan can be considered a good person if he does good deeds.
He said God’s kingdom wasn’t some kind of empire like Babylon, or Egypt, or Rome, but within us all; and all that you needed was a new perspective, to be born again into the realization that what’s on the inside is more important than what’s on the outside.
So, why is it that Christianity in America, in 2016, is so diametrically opposed to what Jesus originally taught?
People on welfare are lazy, we need to blow up any country in the Middle East that doesn’t give us their oil, people who call God Allah instead of Jehovah are lowlife scum.
And most importantly, we have to keep the lazy lowlife scum that talk and look differently than we do on the other side of the fence. Better yet, the other side of the wall. A really big wall.
I could go on and on, but let’s just stop playing games. Christianity isn’t about religion. It’s about politics.
