What the Bible says about the Tea Party Movement

The Lord knoweth how to ... reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: But chiefly them that ... despise government.

These ... speak evil of the things that they understand not.

They ... count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings.

Beguiling unstable souls ... cursed children. 2 Peter 2:9-14

But then, some people interpret this passage differently.

A genuine Christian populace will reject collectivism and centralized government. A morally debauched populace will look to the government to support them and shelter them from their bad moral choices. Thus for the collectivist Liberal bent on imposing socialism upon a nation, Christianity is the number one enemy above all other enemies. Christianity must be eliminated.
Despite decades of spectacular failure in nation after nation, the Liberal clings to his collectivist dream because it is far more than a theory of government. It is a religion.

Gosh, galletta61. It sounds like you despise government. Oh well, the Lord knows what to do with you.

galletta,

Jesus was a socialist.

Jesus wasn't socialist.
That'd supporting the Roman Government, what he only tolerated.
That'd supporting individualism outside the field of the Government, but he demanded blind obedience to him, or any people in higher rank then you.

Jesus was a jewish leader, advocating segregation and blind faith. Of course he was a little of reformer too with discouraging ethnicism, but that's another matter.
He wanned to give up all your "earthly possetion", while socialism would work to rise everyone's living standards.

All in all: Jesus was NOT a socialist, and even the apostles (in the book of the apostles) were communists, not socialists.

Not only was Jesus NOT a socialist, he also never existed: http://jesuspuzzle.humanists.net/home.htm

Check out the link: It's damned mind-blowing.

That's not a picture of a teabagger, I'm pretty sure. I imagine many of the teabaggers are homophobic, but it's not really their issue.

Good post, anyway. This liberal Christian says, "Hear, hear!"

Brucker,

Yeah, that's no teabagger. I think she's on of Fred Phelp's kids, what with the "God Hates Fags" sign and all.

It's interesting that they interpret 2 Peter 2:12 as being anti-gay. I guess they believe "natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed" refers to homosexuals.

Brucker said...

I get the feeling the Phelps crew would be happy replacing the whole Bible with a "GOD HATES FAGS" sign.

She's wearing shorts.

Deuteronomy 22:5 "The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God."

Matt 7:5 "Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye."

Job 13:7,16 "Will ye speak wickedly for God? ... an hypocrite shall not come before him."

Job 27:8 "For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away his soul?"

And last but not least:
Proverbs 28:9 "He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination."

That's right, bitch, God hates your prayers.
