It’s obvious Jesus was liberal — a radical liberal, in fact.
(Using today’s definition of liberal.)
Jesus’ apostles and disciples tried to put His teachings to
practice by forming a commune styled much the same as today’s
Marxist communism, following pretty much the same principle:
“From each according to his ability, to each according his
need.” (Quoting Karl Marx.) This goes to show that Jesus was
FAR to the left — so much so that his ideas rivaled Marx’s.
Like it or not, those are the facts. They are all unmistakably
So when you go off on one of your rants about the Evil Liberal
Agenda, you are in fact fighting against the teachings of your
own Christ. About the only thing conservatives legitimately
have over on modern-day liberals is your stance on abortion.
Virtually all else has no basis in New Testament scripture.
(Not to say that they are bad… just that they aren’t based
on the teachings of Jesus.)
Then, also on your Mission page, you go on to say, “and let
those who don’t abide by our teachings know the eternal pit of
hellfire shall be awaiting!”
Did you really mean to write YOUR teachings? Or should this
have been Jesus’ teachings? Hopefully the latter.
Either way, you, a mere mortal, have absolutely no idea as to
how God will judge his children. You have no way of knowing
what constitutes a hell-fire sin and what doesn’t. Are you
confident that you have conducted your life in a manner so
pleasing to God that you will be admitted to heaven? I myself
try to follow even the so-called “hard teachings” of Jesus,
like loving your enemy, and still I have constant doubts as to
my worthiness. In fact I feel even less worthy. It is, after
all, hard to love those who do me and my loved ones harm.
This criticism is meant as food-for-thought as you move
forward with the mission of your website. Good luck with that!
