One of the many reasons you can know that Jim Wallis and Sojourners are fakes

They have article after article on Catholics and never note that their views are irreconcilable with Christianity.  Here’s one of many examples: Stephen Colbert on Pope Francis, Cardinal Dolan and (of Course) Stephen Colbert – David Gibson | God’s Politics Blog | Sojourners.

Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis is a fake who pretends to be a centrist while he is really a Leftist extremist.  And he pretends to be an evangelical while being a cheerleader for the Pope.

If you can’t see that Wallis is a wolf, you’ve got a problem.

Do false teachers get any verses right?

Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis wrote an odd thing in The Post-Cynical Christian:

And this is where faith comes in. Hebrews 11:1 says it best, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” And at every stop on the tour, I found myself repeating my personal paraphrase of that biblical text, “Hope means believing in spite of the evidence, then watching the evidence change.” Faith enables us to act in hope, despite how things look, and that’s what can help make change finally occur and change how things look.

It is weird how theological Leftists hardly use Bible verses, and when they do they tend to butcher them.  Wallis gets faith completely wrong here.  Biblical faith is trusting in what reason has assessed.  To say he believes in spite of the evidence for God makes no sense.

 

Jim Wallis’ new strawman

See Wanted: 1,000 Pastors For the Poor – Jim Wallis – God’s Politics Blog, where Wallis wants to debunk the “myth” based on the political assertion that government doesn’t have any responsibility to poor people.  It is a classic example of arguing a point that wasn’t made.

What I oppose, along with many others, are false teachers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie distorting what the Bible teaches and asking for a virtual blank check for their counterproductive social programs.

How about if Wallis, Currie et al sign letters asking the government to stop letting people crush and dismember innocent but unwanted human beings?  That would be worthwhile.

Sojo blog ignores union incivility and more

What a shocker!  The false teaching ghouls who blamed Sarah Palin and TEA Partiers for the Arizona shootings before the bodies were cold have been silent on the union bullying, death threats and violence.  What happened to the passion for civility?  What happened to the charges of racism against TEA Partiers because they were mostly white even though the union protesters are nearly all white?  What hypocrites.

Here’s all I could find on the Sojourners blog — via God in Wisconsin: Scott Walker’s Misguided ‘Obedience’ – Diana Butler Bass

Scott Walker is neither Roman Catholic nor a mainline churchgoer. The son of a Baptist pastor, born in Colorado Springs, the heartland of the Religious Right, Walker is a member of Meadowbrook Church in Wauwatosa, a non-denominational evangelical church. Meadowbrook’s statement of faith, a fairly typical boilerplate of conservative evangelical theology, includes beliefs in biblical inerrancy, sin, exclusive salvation through Christ, and eternal damnation.

Eek!  Biblical views!  Hey, maybe Miss Bass will take the book seriously and become a Christian one day.  She doesn’t believe in sin?  Then how can she criticize anyone for anything?  She doesn’t believe in exclusive salvation through Christ?  Jesus sure did, as did his followers, who noted it over 100 times in the New Testament.

And hey, isn’t it a bad thing to criticize other religions?  And I do mean “other,” because Wallis, Currie et al aren’t preaching true Christianity.  The Sojo blog has many posts boo-hooing the questioning of Islam yet nothing about the Wisconsin unions — other than support for them.  The author thinks it is biblical for us to ask Caesar to do the work of the church.

 

*False teachers include people like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and race-baiting Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie

Why do false teachers insist that Islam is tolerant?

False teachers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie repeat the lie that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance.

Why are they so ignorant of world religions?  Of course some Muslims are tolerant and don’t blow things up.  But what does the Koran teach?  How are Muslim-majority nations run?  See Is Islam tolerant of other world religions? « Wintery Knight

If these fakes don’t even know the basics about Christianity or other religions, why should their views on politics and economics be considered useful?

“Is Nature Worth Saving?” Better question: Are the unborn worth saving? –

False teacher Brian McClaren asks, Is Nature Worth Saving? But of course, he and the other “God’s politics” writers like Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis do nothing to oppose abortion.   Of course the oil spill is a tragedy.  With some decent leadership and less political payoffs to the administration the impact could have been greatly mitigated.  But just watch these fakes cry over birds but not babies.

More social justice fallacies

More from the blog of Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis — Social Justice is a Virtue – Cathleen Falsani – God’s Politics Blog.  This organization is the opposite of social justice. They  support legalized abortion and argue against restrictions against it. They were wildly in favor of Obamacare and its taxpayer funded abortions. They were willing to risk the whole package instead of pushing for the Stupak Amendment. They are pro-abortion, not pro-choice or pro-life. Wallis says the Gospel is “all about” wealth redistribution. We should obviously give generously as Christians but to say that wealth redistribution is the Gospel couldn’t be more wrong.

They also perpetuate the false dichotomy that if you care about people’s eternal salvation that you don’t care about what happens in this life.  What utter nonsense.  It is well established that conservatives give more than liberals.  If you really want people to love, give and serve more then share the Gospel with them first.

More pathetic bad thinking and race baiting by pro-abort Jim Wallis

See How Christian is Tea Party Libertarianism? – Jim Wallis – God’s Politics Blog

.The Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis-led Sojourners / God’s politics blog is the opposite of social justice, but he hypocritically plays the race card and says the Tea Party is non-Christian.

But these people support legalized abortion and argue against restrictions against it.  They were wildly in favor of Obamacare and its taxpayer funded abortions.  They are pro-abortion, not pro-choice or pro-life.

It is so morbidly ironic for them to play the race card when they support the abortion industry that kill blacks at a rate three times that of whites and Hispanics at a rate double that of whites.  That’s racism.

Wallis says the Gospel is “all about” wealth redistribution.  We should obviously give generously as Christians but to say that wealth redistribution is the Gospel couldn’t be more wrong.

More weak thinking from false-teaching Sojourners

The Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis-led Sojourners / God’s politics blog is all for open borders — Obama Sends 1200 Troops to the Border to Guard Against Republican Criticism – César Baldelomar – God’s Politics Blog.

They don’t have a clue about the role of government.  If they want to help the poor in Mexico then by all means send them some of your own money.  That’s what my church does.  They do regular medical mission trips to Mexico.

But the open borders put us all at risk by letting in criminals and terrorists and those who cross the border to soak up unearned benefits.

Jim Wallis distorts the Gospel, again

See Anti-Immigrant Law Passes in Arizona, ‘We Will Not Comply’ – Allison Johnson – God’s Politics Blog

While boo-hooing about the new Arizona law to address the huge problem of illegal aliens, the Sojourners blog does their usually distortion of the issue.

This law will make it illegal to love your neighbor in Arizona, and will force us to disobey Jesus and his gospel. We will not comply.”

Such hyperbole.  How is obeying the law to protect our borders not loving your neighbor?

How does following this law disobey the real Gospel?  The Gospel is the good news that Jesus died for our sins and rose again (1 Cor. 15).  Heck, this law doesn’t even violate Wallis’ made-up version of the Gospel, which he says is “all about wealth redistribution.”

This radical new measure, which crosses many moral and legal lines,

What legal lines does it cross?  And disobeying this law obviously crosses legal lines and they don’t have a problem with that.

Jim Wallis is a false teacher.

I finally found a Sojourners / “God’s Politics” blog post I agree with . . .

. . . but when I went to post an affirming comment I found out I was banned!  (the post was So, Am I a Reductionist? – Aaron Taylor – God’s Politics Blog)  They didn’t even offer an explanation, but it is pretty obvious what the reason was.

The Sojourners / God’s Politics blog moderator has the thinnest skin I’ve seen.  I was amazingly polite, yet firm, in pointing out their logical fallacies and how their pro-legalized abortion views are the opposite of social justice.  I pointed out how Wallis’ definition of the Gospel (“all about” wealth redistribution) disagree with what the Bible teachers — and ironically, the post I liked had the real definition of the Gospel.

I knew they taught a false gospel, but I’m disappointed that they are so gutless as to ban people who disagree with them.  Time after time I would follow the commenting guidelines while the “tolerant” progressive would get personal, make up “facts,” etc.

Pathetic hypocrites.
