Liberal Christian

Posted by shes_initforthemoney on September 14, 2011, at 21:34:05

I am just referencing from a post above about the common misconceptio that most Christians are conservative. first, God is not conservative or liberal. I belong to Sojouners, a site that believes Jesus and God's messages are about social justice, and in being responsible for one another, as well as for the environment and planet. There are over 1500 references in the Bible to calls for social justice. Think of the scene when Jesus was smashing the tables of the moneychangers, disgusted at their love for money when so many people went without. Jesus would rather be with the poor, sick, hungry...with the prostitutes and beggers in the slums. Jesus was disgusted with decadence and greed..and love of money. He was the first to speak for the poor. He detested violence and war.I will write more of this topic with direct references, but it is fair to say you most likely would be closer to Jesus and God, and find them spreading their love in a slum in Calcuta then on Wall street.


"Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic and we'll change the world," ~Jack Layton 1950-2011
