Suddenly all the people who love to mock and ridicule Christians are now theologians.
Funny how that happens.
With the passage of the Senate Tax Reform bill, these Jesus-mockers are lecturing Christians over what Jesus would think of the tax overhaul.
You see, Jesus said in Matthew 25:35:
”For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
And apparently what Jesus was talking about wasn’t “you” in the “you personally” sense of the word.
Instead, Leftists believe Jesus meant “you” in the “you let the government do it for you by confiscating the wealth of others” sense of the word.
If you’re concerned about the hungry, the thirsty, the strangers, the unclothed, then you, personally, can help them.
That’s what Christian charity is all about – self-sacrifice for the least of these.
It isn’t something you outsource to the government.
Jesus didn’t say “For I was hungry and you demanded the wealthy pay more in taxes to feed me. I was thirsty and you demanded corporations pay more so that I had something to drink. I needed clothes so you badgered Congress to confiscate the wealth of the one percent to clothe me.”
These guys don’t really care about the poor and needy. Except of course when the poor and needy can be exploited for political gain.
Every single person whining about this tax bill could, if they so choose, write an additional check to the US Treasury and earmark it for whatever program they wanted.
You know, just like President Trump is doing with his paycheck every quarter.
And everyone wringing their hands over the plight of the poor could take a crow bar to their own wallet and donate to Food Banks, job training programs and other charitable organizations.
If they truly cared about Jesus saying “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me,” they’d put their own money where their loud mouths are.
But they won’t.
That’s because they want to pawn off charity to others while still feeling sanctimonious about it.
And if they do crack open their wallets, they will donate instead to organizations with a vested interest in maintaining an underclass.
Or they’ll donate to Planned Parenthood in Mike Pence’s name.
Because as Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, I was in my mother’s womb and you helped fund the company that suctioned me out and sold me for parts.”
