This is a perfect example of the difference between the Christian who can only see as far as the faith, hope and charity he or she should quite rightly be supporting and a Christian who accepts all that but is in the political world, saying socialism is not the way to get it, quite the opposite in fact.
Socialism uses feelgood terms, “Christian” aims, as buzzwords. Don’t you support tolerance, fairness, equality?
Yes we do, very much so but not as defined by the left. To the left, tolerance means tolerance for any obscenity, as well as for good things. Fairness means taking away from people, stealing from them, in order to give to a favoured group. Equality is unfair in its very terminology – “positive discrimination”. What’s with this “positive”? Positive to whom? Negative, therefore, to whom?
This scam of using feelgood words nobody could disagree with and then conning people that the way the PTB use them is consistent with the meaning of the words and that the people’s best interests are cherished by the PTB is iniquitous. And the leftwing Christian falls for it.
Less contentiously, the non-political Christian such as this lady, full of charity and love, kindly, a good Christian, errs greatly when she strays into politics and urges political solutions which have been long exploded as non-efficacious.
The people behind the scams she falls for, as has been shown in the Agenda 21 renaming scandal that should have been, are using terms people will identify with in order to bring in blight and control by companies run by the PTB, e.g. Monsanto. They are working for the interests of an entirely different Master to that of the Christian. See Ephesians 6:12.
Not being disingenuous themselves, being kind people motivated by Christian concerns, leftwing Christians don’t buy what the centre-right is showing them – that this is a scam. Labour and the Lib Dems are pretending to represent workers’ best interests because the Tories do not.
Look, the parliamentary Tories contain many of these couldn’t care less merchants becasue those are the top are Them [see Epheisans 6:12] but that is not what small c conservatism means, as the UKIP dilemma shows. Small c conservatism means free markets and low taxes in order to set up businesses, esp small businesses, to create prosperity, from which all the good things Christians subscribe to will flow.
Thus, people will have jobs, they are secure, they are more charitable and schemes to help the needy, who are far fewer, can be put in place.
But an attempt to bring in faith, hope and charity by draconian governmental means is doomed, not least because the people charged with implementing it are both part of a narrative, incompetent and working for the entities in Ephesians 6:12. The govt makes a law that I must love a black who commits crimes. That’s not the Christian message. Love all creatures and people, yes but sit back and say nothing when one group behaves badly and then you threaten me with fines or prison for speaking out?
Where is that in scripture?
And when something is nationalized, it goes pear-shaped. It always has done. True, when giant corporations run it, it also becomes a rip off, with huge moneys from ordinary people going into the pockets of fat cats. So there’s a message in there about monopolies and corporations in bed with the MIC and govt.
Yes to compassion, tolerance, fairness, equality, if it is genuine.
If it is genuine.
But the way it is been pursued by the global socialist PTB is anything but Christian – it is in the very hands that it should never be and 1984 is the only result which will come, after the war they’re trying to drag us into. By a Christian supporting these global socialists de facto, even when they think the opposite is the case, that they’re supporting good things – that is simply abetting, bringing on early, the next holocaust.
The vilified small c conservative Christians and non-Christians, rationalists, atheists and all manner of herded cats who do not want this holocaust to happen are loosely connected – strange bedfellows indeed but all committed to stopping these global socialists. If you need a stark enough reminder of the influence of the latter, look no further than that girl who suicided [earlier post].
Who are the genuinely compassionate here, in real terms – the feelgooders or the curmudgeons like us?
The good sister is a lovely, compassionate person, full of fire for any who would do bad things. But in her proposed solutions, the good sister is in grievous error.
