Some Say Christians Are Charitable To A Fault

 

 

Ever wonder how an American Presidential administration  could become a welcoming beacon, a place of employment, extending even to a springboard and a  platform for the espousal of radical, anti-American philosophy by an “open” communist (Van Jones)? When last we checked,this was America, right?  Like, with tenets, ideals, foundations, charters and shared beliefs?  These things we thought were sacred in our republican democracy – free enterprise, freedom, truth and a moral compass – these things were to be jeopardized necessarily by the employment of those philosophically and doggedly opposed to our cardinal tenets to act with official sanction from within the offices of our government?

How could this have happened?  How could the American institutions just surrender like that?  An open Communist ensconced in a position of some authority and influence within the government, a government which has spent a good portion of it’s existence going back generations not only railing against Communism as not a fit model, but sacrificing trillions of dollars and countless American lives combatting it?  How could this come about?

Imagine.

After 33 years of debate, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has voted to change its constitution and allow openly gay people in same-sex relationships to be ordained as ministers, elders and deacons.

That’s right. Not to be outdone by the Episcopalians, the Presbyterians have installed as professors of what the faith is nowadays those previously thought to be, in at least some important ways,  in antithesis to the teachings of the Good Books.

We’ve come a long way, haven’t we?

  1. I currently attend an Anglican/Episcopal church that has recently requested and received dispensation to attach itself to a different diocese than the one here in Virginia. We now “belong” to an archdiocese in So. Carolina. This is a direct result of the American Episcopal church abandoning the very foundation of their roots. As more and more traditional American churches abandon core doctrinal beliefs, we’ll see more of this. As you’ve pointed out, Bob, the Presbyterians are following suit, making up new doctrine as they go along.

    I consider myself a tolerant person, but the bible, Old and New Testaments, clearly speaks against certain practices which I believe that Jesus himself would condemn, therefore rewriting Christianity is not an option for me, though it is obviously for some churches.

  2. “Go forth, say what thou must sayeth, do what thou must doeth, to continue relevance. Urge thy followers to redistribute and to share in all things, especially unto the lazy, for they shall squat upon the Kingdom of Heaven and thence come to inherit it after they have ruined it by their laziness and sloth, after every productive citizen has left. Their Government shall sustain them.” John 22:1-6

    Want to see what Nostradamus had to say?

    • No, not Nostradamus, I’m edgy enough these days, but would like to know if it was Jim Wallis who discovered the lost chapter of John and was that about the same time that Barry Lynd discovered the separation of church and state in the Constitution?

      • LOL, probably a nom de plume. I’m grateful that the first commenter recognized “the lost chapter” or at least one that doesn’t exist. Thanks for letting me off the hook on Nostradamus, I’m not very good a quatrains. I have heard that Specialist discovered some of Nostradamus’ lost haikus…

  3. A person who doesn’t believe the whole Bible doesn’t believe the Bible at all, but believes in himself.

    I don’t suppose there’s any better example of idolatry today than the number of people who are willing to say that they are going to decide right from wrong. A whole country full of little man-gods.
