Avoiding the Obvious

By | May 6, 2014

As Christians, we are to emulate the Lord. We are directly commanded by the Lord to assist the poor, the widow, the orphan, and those in prison. We are not told to interfere with people’s private lives (we’re directly told not to be busybodies).

Millions of kids in the United States go to bed hungry every night. Millions of kids do not have a secure home to live in. We are a nation with the wealthiest Christians in history. These two things just are so jarring when positioned next to each other.

Many American Christians spend their time making sure that women can’t control their bodies and gays can’t marry, two things the Lord never talked about. The things he _directly_ talked about Christians are not doing. We are not doing. I am not doing.
