Yeah. I keep digging in my heels about mistreatment of the poor by the “Church”. It’s so blatantly, ridiculous as to be embarrassing, really. To speak of being staunchly biblical out of one side of your face only to turn the poor out into the night with the other.
Hey, this isn’t really a matter of ironing out a few complexities and fine points of doctrine. No. This is simple stuff. Hard, maybe, but simple – AND important.
But you know what?
The “Church” by-n-large is also waaaaaay to easily seduced by the “Two Corinthians” quoting, unrepentant “pussy”-grabber! If Bill Clinton was guilty of that, the “Church” would be up in arms, and Ken Starr would be back in a heartbeat! But somehow a narcissist opportunist the “Church” claims as champion spews racist and poor-people hating rhetoric about “Shithole countries”, and the “Church” rushes to his defense?
Really. Check it out here:
Surely his “Church” is waaaaaaay to shallowly two-faced to be taken seriously as representing God. If this is the company we are keeping, if these are the values we uphold, then we surely cannot be the Body of Christ I read about in the Bible. We are a counterfeit. A cruel joke at best.
It’s no wonder I go ignored by this bunch as much as possible.
Perhaps Matthew 7:21-23 will keep you up tonight!
Matthew 7:21-23 English Standard Version (ESV)
I Never Knew You
21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.22 On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ 23 And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’
