So Jesus would be pro-choice? Would He be in favor of partial birth abortion? Would He be in favor of saving babies alive after abortion attempts or would He think it’s ok to let them die?
Would He be in favor of homosexual marriage?
I’ve heard similar talk about quotes such as Jesus saying “Blessed are the peacemakers”, which the leftists interpret to mean we should never fight a war or be involved in military action.
And the say how Jesus preached and encouraged all to help the poor, which the leftists interpret to mean that we need more gov’t programs to help the poor.
49”I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! 51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”
Maybe this guy heard from Jesus [hay--soos] in San Antonio, whose girlfriend is now in trouble.
Also - on the subject of preaching and gifting to the poor, it is all by choice, which is the most absolute, utter basic tenet of Christianity, on which all of it is entirely based. Choice.
Government compulsion to give is not choice. Without the choice to give, you cannot voluntarily display your help of the least of us. That is not Christian.
