The Christian Right are today's Pharisees, overly concerned with legalities, literalism, vengeance, and other people's sexual conduct. This is exactly what Jesus was opposed to and preached against. Christ advocated for social justice. By today's standards, Jesus was an extreme left wing radical. He stood with the marginalized and outcast and the poor, and against the wealthy, self-righteous, conservative religious institutions. He prayed alone often, and ate with those who were considered scum. He told his followers not to judge the prostitutes or adulterers. He wanted people to care for the poor as if they were caring for Him. He was OUTRAGED by the inequality of the socio-economic system. His deeds and words supersede both the "eye for an eye" and purification laws of the Old Testament. He was very clear about this. That is why He was KILLED. Christ's Grace is for EVERYONE.
To be honest I wouldnt know because I have never even heard of the group so they can't be that popular I mean everyone determination of peoples religion is based on your own views just because you go to church doesn't mean you are a Christian in the church of god
The bible is open to all interpretation. From the westborough baptist to Catholics there are many religions based on different interpretation of how we should worship god and how to view Jesus's teachings. Just because left Christians don't have traditional politically beliefs as other Christians doesn't mean they don't believe in Jesus as our savior.
Yes, members of the Christian Left are just as Christian as other Christian groups. Their underlying faith bath values are essentially the same but perhaps their interpretations of real world public policies vary. Political and public policy opinions and values can be shaped by values not directly from ones faith.
I believe members of the Christian Left are really Christians. The Christian faith is broken up into so many different sects and each has their own set of beliefs. Some things are the same across these sects and some things are drastically different. I don't think these differences make any one of them any less Christian.
I once saw a man do a graph on ideologies and he put right wing Conservative as being the center and labeled perfect. Man you people on the "right" are so stuck up and high on self righteousness.
You claim I do not value "hard work" and "family" when you people wish to lower wages and advocate arresting fathers for life.
Now you put children in cages and make a buck off of them in private jails.
You are pro life but you could care less about a child or orphan.
Rather than have a civil conversation you call me some baby liberal and some abortion advocate. I do support abortion nor will I ever but you people just slap the label on me.
I will be there on that when Jesus judges everyone and he will not let you into heaven. Why because you people only love yourselves and you ignored the least of him. Because that Mexican you mistreated could have been a Cristian. And you never even give money to the poor or to your church and you got drunk instead. You also lusted and committed crimes and thought that you were better than everyone not knowing how good you had it.
And by the way crossing the border illegally is a crime by the government but not a sin by Jesus. Hating your brother and your neighbor is a sin though. So think about that before it is to late for you.
No, since they believe a whole new set of values that differ from that of other Christians, I do not think that they are Christians at all, and they they are a whole new type of religion, which is not really a bad thing since you can believe what you want.
