Many self professed Christians despise socialism, many of whom, hypocrites that they are, benefit from social programs like social security, medicare, medicaid and food stamps. Either ignorant of or intentionally ignoring the Bible, they regard not that shortly after the crucifixion the apostles carried on in the manner that the Lord had taught them.
And with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all. Neither was there any among them that lacked: for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles’ feet: and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. Acts 4:33-35.
Ladies and gentlemen, that is a socialist collective, and such is the kingdom of heaven.
Speaking of socialism, phony Christians also revile liberals. A Christian cannot despise a liberal—a Christian is liberal.
Here is a selection of words: not bound by authoritarian, orthodoxy, or traditional forms. Free from bigotry. Tending to give freely…marked by generosity.
Those words describe Jesus Christ. They are dictionary definitions of the word liberal. You can’t love Christ and hate liberals; that is a house divided, which can only fall.
Phony Christians dislike our neighbors and oppose immigration. That is not what Jesus would have, nor what the Bible teaches.
And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him. But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God. Leviticus 19:33-34
Phony Christians love to say ‘God Bless America,’ and become indignant when our leaders and others overlook to speak those words; words which Jesus would never utter.
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. John 17:9
Jesus warned that whited sepulchers and wolves in sheepskin would come, and so are they among us now, claiming to speak of the Lord when in truth they chatter like devils.
