The World Needs to See This Now: The Law of Christ Movie - (Re-edited)

At this time of division, hypocrisy, racial, political, and social unrest....We need to explore what Jesus was about now more than ever. The first 20 minutes of this documentary covers the law, covenants, and Kingdom of God in detail. The final 24 minutes covers Jesus’ conflict with religious hypocrisy. Sadly, He is still in conflict with religious hypocrisy today. This is a film to share with everyone you can.

Should the Church Speak Out on Social Justice Issues? - THE BEAT by Allen Parr

Should the church get involved in social justice? A lot of people have criticized the church for being "silent" during a time of national upheaval and extreme racial and political tension. But, should we expect the church get actively involved in matters of social justice or is it okay for the church to remain silent and conduct "business as usual?" What does the Bible say about this if anything at all?

A Christian Response to Racism in Society

The latest incidence of racially motivated brutality in the States is both deplorable and heartbreaking. Beyond the pain of murder that will be felt by the relatives and friends of the victim, the pain resonates outwards and further deepens the divides between people groups. These groups are divided not only by race but by ideologies – the chasm between political left and right has widened even further.

The purpose of this article is not to pick a political side. My purpose is to ask – how should Christians respond? Not only to this particular incident but what about racism in their society generally? Some Christian posts have encouraged us as Christians to “get angry” about the racial divisions we see today. They want Christians to go out and “do something” about the state of race relations today. The problem is, what exactly is the “something”?

What Is Socialism? The Programming Ushering In A New World - Truthunedited

What is socialism? I want to break down some of the mental games being played with us, as well as give a proper understanding of what Socialism really is so that no matter what you may feel emotional, you are still able to understand things educationally.

Should Christians Be Politically Involved? - Dr. Jonathan Carl

When you watch political news do you find yourself getting excited or angry? Our emotional responses to changes in politics may point us to having an identity that is too tied to our political preferences.

My advice on politics comes from Revelation Chapter 18. "Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;"

Modern-Day Good Samaritan Sees Injured Man On Side Of Road, Angrily Tweets About Republicans - Babylon Bee

NEW YORK, NY - Greg Kleid was walking home when he saw an injured man on the side of the road. Much like the Good Samaritan in Jesus's parable, Klein acted swiftly. He immediately took out his phone and let his rival political party have it on Twitter.

This was shamelessly stolen from The Babylon Bee. You can read the full post by clicking (HERE).

My Commentary follows:
Admittedly, I love The Babylon Bee! Who says Christian's can't have a sense of humor. More importantly, they found a way around the fascist censors at Goolag, Waste-Book, Twit-turd, and all the other "Social-ist Media" sites by pretending to be a satire page.

As a side note: There are two salient things about this post that IMHO need to be made here about the "Christian response" to all these "Social Issues!"

The first is, the "Social Justice" (more correctly stated: Socialist injustice) Gospel is NOT the Gospel Jesus preached! While it is true that Jesus taught us that we are our brother's keeper and that we should be ready and willing to lend a hand when needed, but the vast majority of "Christians" who favor taking actions are in reality calling for the outsourcing of aid to the government. They are in fact, abdicating their responsibility to be salt and light to a lost and dying world. This violates both the 8th and 10th commandments not to steal and not to covet.

The second point is like unto the first. Virtue signaling is, in essence, the making of a totally meaningless gesture that does absolutely nothing to alleviate the situation! If people want to call others attention to an injustice, that is one thing but, more often than not, that is not what is taking place. Instead, what's really happening is something rather perverse and narcissistic. What good does wearing a diaper pin or some colored ribbon do? What good does posting something on socialist media do if you won't so much as lift a finger to actually help? The people who participate in such are simply drawing attention to themselves. They are proclaiming to anyone who sees how "with it" or "cool" they think they are. Didn't Jesus tell us that when we give our alms to the poor that we should do so in secret? When anyone does what they do to be seen by men, they have their reward.

Instead, when you see someone in need, why don't you just go ahead and do what you can in the here and now to brighten the corner where you are? Who knows, the process of actually helping someone, you just might open an opportunity to reach them with the real Gospel.

Just saying. . .

How Communism Subverted the Church

Arguably the "Political" Right did the same thing by coopting the evangelical "Religious" Right, in the 60's and 70's through the Moral Majority movement. Both the "Religious" right and left claim to be taking the moral high ground, that they are voices for the voiceless and that they are doing the Lord's work. I would argue that cooperation with either the political right or left is counter to our mission as followers of Jesus. While it is true that we are to be salt and light to a lost and dying world, it is not our mission to create a heaven on earth. Our job is to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom and then let them who have ears to hear it, hear. It is Christ who builds His Church, not us! As the popular saying goes: "What do you get when you mix religion and politics? The answer is, Politics!"
