Well, it is Republicans who control congress now. :tear:
Actually it's the banks and corporations that control congress now.
And we know the GOP loves the big corporations and the rich.
Looks like it's a love triangle then.
Because life would be so much better if the abortion-on-demand, tax-and-spend liberals were always in power, right? I'm sure they would welcome Jesus right into the Congress...
Can we conclude that, therefore the Democrats hate "big corporations and the rich," you know, guys like George Soros and fellows like him. All Democrats will always refuse donations from him or his rich associates, right?
Let's see, you seem to indicate that, for example, Hillary Clinton & hubby Bill have never, ever taken one cent from people like Soros and friends. Since you always seem to have all sorts of documentation readily at hand to disrespect any person or group that doesn't conform to your standards and practices, please post the details on your friends--not just the Clintons--who've ever either ran for or occupied any single local, state-wide, or federal political office over, say, the last 50 years.
I'm positive you've got all this detailed info right at hand; therefore, I'd like to read it myself. There's probably others who'd like to read it as well.
And the GOP would welcome Christ when he asks them:
"When did I say deport all the Samaritans?
When did I command you not feed and take care of the poor?
When did I command you not help children in need?
When did I command that you give big tax breaks to the rich and tiny ones to the poor?
When did Jesus go to Pontius Pilate and ask these questions? Oh, that's right Jesus commanded his followers to do these things, not the government.
I noticed you stated that congress is controlled by Republicans.
You did not mention Conservatives, those who are spiritual, ect.
Never claimed that the GOP was better. You established a false premise by acting like the Democrats were better.
But as someone else noted, Jesus never commanded the government to do these things. He commanded His followers to do these things. Trust me, I've known plenty of liberals who believe using the police power of government to extract wealth from one person in order to give it to another is a great form of charity. It's not, but they believe it is.
No, both parties have their own guilt in one way or another.
The biggest backers of the democrats, and Hillary Rodham Clinton, are the Jewish bankers on Wall Street.
Come on Mr. Crab., you act like the party of baby butchers walk on water!
Typical liberal! Adding to Scripture!
When did Jesus Christ command Rome to take care of the poor? NEVER!
It is a fact that Republicans and Conservatives give far more to charities and churches than liberals. Joe Biden is the typical liberal when it comes to giving:
When did HE tell the democrat party of butchery to slaughter babies in their mothers womb?
The same time he said slaughter the babies before they are born!
C'mon, CTB, you know better than to argue from silence. Just because Jesus did not command the Roman government to do something does not mean that He desires the opposite. That argument is just as bad as the claim I heard back in January that Jesus did not bleed during the scourging and crucifixion, simply because the Bible does not say he did.
PreacherTony, first thanks for your post.
A question. Do you see anything or any teaching in the life of Jesus while on earth that indicates he opposes the government helping the poor, the ill, children, widows, etc?
Looks to me that you're still arguing from silence.
I gather that you therefore contend that all TV evangelistic programs are in opposition to Christ's teachings because He never taught that He wanted His teachings telecast over the airwaves.
I see nothing in the Gospel accounts where He said to do so.
A person can argue from silence about almost everything his fertile mind can come up with.
Arguing from silence is about the same as the same as telling a person that, if you read between the lines in your Bible, you'll find lots of things--Mary's sinlessness, and that she's the way to get to Jesus in your prayers, etc.
I've read between the lines in my Bible, and I get as much information as I do as reading an argument from silence---NADA, zilch, nothing.
