How can we win the war on poverty? This is a very important and not-that-complicated lesson. The greatest and saddest irony is that those most vocal about injustice and reducing poverty are the ones who caused the problem to begin with: The theological liberals like false teachers Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie. They continually advance programs that make the problems worse. They teach the opposite of what God’s word said on human sexuality and we see the devastating consequences every day.
And it isn’t just poverty. I see the impacts of this in prison ministry and pregnancy center ministries as well. The liberal policies increase the number of victims and are the opposite of “social justice.”
What could be the problem? Well, think of welfare as a cash payment given to women who have have babies with men who they chose knowing that those men were not interested in becoming fathers or husbands. Women are having sex with men and having babies with men who have not married them and have no intention of marrying them. And the government is paying them to do this. The government is paying them to oppose chastity. The government is paying them to avoid courting. The government is paying them to avoid chivalry. The government is paying them to avoid marriage.
