Christianity Lite: All the pomp, but zero catechism

Christianity Lite: All the pomp, but zero catechism

The New York Times is excitedly promoting Grandpa Joe as the most “religiously observant commander-in-chief in half a century.” But don’t worry. It isn’t that scary, icky Christianity. It’s Christianity Lite – or as the NY Times calls it: “a different, more liberal Christianity.”

Christianity Lite has all the pomp and ceremony without the inconvenience of actually having to live by the teachings of Jesus.

With Christianity Lite you don’t have to fill up on “good works and faith” that invariably leave you with that heavy feeling. Nope. All you need to do is call yourself “devout,” show up for church every now and then, and presto! You’re in the club!

Nobody can ever call you out for not living your life according to the doctrines of your faith. Because there is no doctrine.

Christianity Lite: All the pomp but zero catechism.

Your anti-Christian friends won’t look down on you because, except for attending church now and then, or quoting carefully-selected verses from the Book of Palms, you are just as anti-Christian as they are.

And since Christianity Lite isn’t saddled with all those pesky commandments, you have a hell of a lot more leeway than real Christians do.

The First Commandment doesn’t apply. So you are free to worship the kooky religion of Progressivism and put your faith in “science” while still showing up for church to give a half-hearted shout-out to the One True God.

You can advocate for the wholesale slaughter of the unborn because “Thou Shalt Not Kill” is optional.

You can advance public policy based on class envy because in Christianity Lite, “Thou Shalt Not Covet” has been replaced with “How Dare Thee Have More Stuff Than I?!”

Likewise, you can spend your Presidential campaign making scurrilous claims about your opponent – like, say, claiming he said Nazis and White Supremacists are very good people – because in Christianity Lite, “Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness” is fluid and changeable. 

And while you might “remember the Sabbath day,” you don’t have to abide by the “six days you shall labor and do all your work” part. Instead, you can “remember the Sabbath Day and call a lid on the other six days.”

Now, Joe Biden’s Christianity Lite does still include the Commandment “Honor Thy Father and Mother.” Which is why Hunter had to give 10% of his ill-gotten-millions to Daddy.

Something tells me this effort to cast Joe Biden in the role of “the most religiously observant commander-in-chief in half a century” isn’t going to work out the way the New York Times thinks it will.

But they have to do it.

See, just as the Biden White House will make full use of “Joe’s son Beau served in the military” as a deflection for Joe’s misuse of the military, they will use “Joe is a devout Catholic” as a deflection for every anti-Christian policy Joe’s army of progressive social justice bureaucrats ram down our throat.

But when the only people praising how “religiously observant” Joe is are the ones who wear like a badge of honor their loathing for the religiously observant, I’m thinking actual Christians won’t be fooled.

    They took pains to try to convince us the Mocha Messiah was a Christian. Yet the only cult he ever adhered to was his religion of violence and intolerance that seems stuck in the 13th century. Buy-dem is an incompetent clown whose only idol is in the filthy money he and his clan have stolen

    Unfortunately too many “Christians” were and are fooled by Biden’s false Christian front. Before I ended my relationship with Facebook, one of my “friends” proudly and sanctimoniously stated that he and his wife had voted for character (against Trump), apparently forgetting about Biden’s long history of lying about his background, his education, the death of his first wife, his racism, and so forth.

    “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

    You can read all about this in Revelations. All the mainline denominations get corrupted by the False Prophet and worship the Whore of Babylon. The “Christians” you wrote of that adore Joey are merely acolytes of the Whore. Nothing can be done to save them. They will pay dearly for their ignorance during the Tribulation.

      I’m from the “Don’t treat Revelation like a Magic 8-Ball” school of thought. For more than a millennium people have pointed to the current events of their age and said, “There! Just like it said in the book of Revelation!” It is not a Biblical horoscope or a Ouija Board. Stop it.

    America’s first day of its first President, George Washington, was April 30, 1789. After he was sworn into office, he led America’s first government on foot to St. Paul’s Chapel in lower Manhattan, to pray and dedicate the Nation’s future to God. So, on April 30,1789, America’s first government committed and consecrated the nation’s future to God.
    This same church, St. Paul’s Chapel, is the church directly across from the Twin Towers. It suffered no damage as the Twin Towers fell on 9/11. The ground across from which America was dedicated to God became the ground of its devastation on 9/11; the nation’s consecration ground became the ground of destruction – Ground Zero.
    In Washington’s inaugural address, he said the blessing of God could never remain ‘on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.” What then lies ahead? Calamity and judgment or revival and restoration? God’s mercy is greater still than his judgment.

    Sorry Joe. You embrace gay marriage (oxymoron) and unfettered murder of the unborn, in addition to all the above mentioned errors. Mush for brains is getting ever closer to hearing the most damning and devastating words from his creator, “depart from Me, I never knew you”.
