You know we’re living in a topsy-turvy world when Democrats start quoting the Bible approvingly. It’s straight from an issue of Superman. Bizarro Democrats.
In Bizarro world, everything is the opposite of Superman’s world. In terms of morality, this Bible verse comes to mind:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! (Isa. 5:20)
If a Republican had quoted the Bible, the Left would be screaming the following: “Separation of church and state! Theocracy! Religion and politics don’t mix! Don’t impose your religion on me! Keep your religion off my body!”
Elizabeth Warren referred to Matthew 25 in one of her speeches.
On Wednesday night at the DNC, Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren drew attention to a New Testament passage that has had increasing significance for the Democratic Party: the Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 25. “‘In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me,’” she said, quoting Jesus. “The passage teaches about God in each of us,” she continued, “that we are bound to each other, and we are called to act — not to sit, not to wait — but to act, all of us together.” (TIME)
Jesus is not addressing the Roman empire or politicians. He is speaking to His disciples. Notice those who are to be recipients of aid: “these my brethren.” Sure enough, soon after the expansion of the church, the early church members voluntary sold some of their property to aid people in need (Acts 2:43-47; 4:32-35).
The people weren’t compelled to sell their property so it could be distributed to those in need. Neither did they appeal to Caesar to establish welfare programs.
A collection was taken up “among the Gentile churches to help Judean believers who were facing harder than usual economic times as a result of a famine during the mid to late 40s [see Acts 11:27-30]. Paul and Barnabas made an initial famine-relief visit to Jerusalem in A.D. 46 and delivered a monetary gift from the church at Antioch (Acts 11:29-30). At that time the Jerusalem church expressed the hope that the believers associated with Paul would continue to remember the Judean believers, which Paul was more than eager to do (Gal 2:10).” (Bible Gateway)
These measures were temporary to meet emergency situations. There’s no indication in the Bible that long-term welfare programs were the norm.
You have to love the chutzpah of the Democrats when they say things like this:
“Elizabeth Warren’s terrific speech last night reaffirmed the vision she shares with President Obama that every American deserves the opportunity to reach our fullest God-given potential,” DNC deputy director of faith outreach Joshua Dickson says. “Her inclusion of Matthew 25: 40 was another reminder of the important role people of faith and faith traditions continue to play in the Democratic Party and reflects the core value that she and the President share.”
For the Democrats, unborn babies don’t deserve “the opportunity to reach [their] fullest God-given potential.”
Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ). another Leftist Democrat who ignores the Bible when it comes to subjects like abortion and same-sex sexuality gets all religious and “Bible thumpy” when it came time to attack President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh…
