Jim Wallis officially supports oxymoronic “Same-Sex Marriage”

No surprise: Jim Wallis Now Supports Same-Sex Marriage. Of course he always supported it, he just didn’t have the guts to say so.

If anyone is surprised then they haven’t followed Wallis closely.  Mr. “Social Justice” is on board with not only legalized abortion but taxpayer-funded abortions.  He is also on record as saying that the “Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” (he should read Galatians 1 again).  He is a false teacher and this is just more evidence of it.  He doesn’t care what the Bible says, he just waited until it profited him to “change his mind.”

Does pro-abortion Jim Wallis really care about the common good?

Or is Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis just trying to sell more of his new book?  Via On God’s Side: For the Common Good – Jim Wallis | God’s Politics Blog | Sojourners:

It’s time to ask what it would look like if we could practice the common good in the massive debates that are now dividing our country: economic fairness and social trust; the purpose rather than the size of government; the moral path to fiscal sustainability, ethics for globalization; coming together to holistically prevent gun violence; conflict resolution over endless wars; and countless others.

His post never mentioned abortion.  Over 3,000 innocent but unwanted human beings are destroyed every day, with his blessing.  In fact, as a supporter of Obama’s Democratic platform Wallis favors taxpayer-funded abortions.  He fails to mention how that is being on “God’s side.”

Sojourners has a crush on Rob Bell

Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and his Sojourners organization really love them some Rob Bell.  They are up to part 5 in a fluff piece series on him — Awake My Soul (Rob Bell Blogalogue Part 5).  But Bell is a transparently worldly false teacher who doesn’t have the guts to stick with real marriage and claims that God is leading him some new way.  Ugh.

Oh noes! Sojourners is mobilizing!

I haven’t written about Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis and his Sojourners group for a while.  See Fun With Numbers for a good analysis of their latest ramblings and rationalizations for advancing failed Leftist policies while pretending to be centrists.

Behind the numbers are vulnerable people and sacred lives.

. . .

We will let Congress know we must not balance our national budget on the backs of “the least of these” (Matthew 25:40).

They fought strenuously for the health care bill when it included taxpayer-funded abortions and they opposed the Stupak Amendment which would have removed abortion funding.  In other words, they are pro-abortion, which makes their claims about “vulnerable people” and the “least of these” ring hollow.

Also remember that Wallis originally denied taking money from George Soros, then finally admitted it, then recently took another $150,000 from a Leftist atheist who is on record for opposing America.  But Wallis is a real centrist, right?

Come and See!

Inspired by the biblical story of Philip and Nathanael (John 1:43-46), Sojourners is calling on faith communities and faith-based organizations to invite their Congressional representatives to “come and see” the organizations and people in your communities that will be placed at risk by severe budget cuts.

 

And leave it to them to rip a Bible passage out of context to justify their Leftist ends. (What does the story of Nathaniel and Phillip have to do with this? Couldn’t anyone use that “come and see” bit for any reason?)

As usual, they are being “generous” with other people’s money and releasing endorphins as they congratulate themselves.

If you like small chunks of heresy . . .

You can follow false teacher Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie on Twitter — see Social Gospel Christianity In 140 Characters.  My guess is that false teacher Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis has an account as well.

The “social gospel” folks are a self-parody, as they are nearly all pro-legalized abortion.  Chuck and Jim would have rather seen their Obamacare dream fail than support the Stupak Amendment, which would have banned taxpayer-funded abortions.  Meditate on that: Their definition of “social gospel” doesn’t just include keeping abortion legal, it means increasing abortions.

I’ve also noticed that the social gospel types don’t present the real Gospel.

Here’s a contest: Who can come up with the best Tweet (140 characters or less) critiquing the hypocrisy of the “social gospel” crowd?  Buzzkill alert: It is one of those contests where the only prize is the satisfaction of winning.  The ruling of the judge is final must be present on the Internet to win etc. etc.

Here are some samples (you don’t have to include the words “social gospel,” I just had room for them:

Social gospel: Congratulating yourself for taking from neighbor A by force to make neighbor B more covetous & comfortable on his way to Hell

Social gospel: Recklessly borrowing from future generations to kill part of future generations via taxpayer-funded abortion

Or state the real Gospel in 140 characters or less:

Jesus died for your sins and rose again.  Repent & believe and have joy, forgiveness and eternal life.

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.

Yet another passage that theological Liberals ignore or don’t understand

I often point out how false teachers abuse scripture to advance their religion-disguised-as-politics agenda.  Jim “the Gospel is all about wealth redistribution” Wallis likes to point out how there are over 2,000 verses about money in the Bible.  That may be true, but it doesn’t mean he understands them.  False teachers like him and Chuck “Jesus is not the only way” Currie think that Jesus taught to ask “Caesar” (i.e., the government) to borrow from others to give away in the name of the oh-so-generous false teachers.

Here’s another verse they ignore or don’t understand, courtesy of  The Servility of the Religious Left « runlevel five(pointer).

The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender. Proverbs 22:7 English Standard Version

Chuck Currie and the United Church of Christ want to make a lot more slaves. In fact, if they have their way,  the entire nation will become further enslaved to foreign lenders, by insisting that we continue to raise the debt ceiling. Moreover, in response to calls for increased fiscal responsibility, they are demanding an increase in taxes.

The problem is, Currie is not alone in his views. He is joined by a host of other advocates for fiscal irresponsibility that reaches the level of forced servitude for the American people. Such deluded individuals consider spending beyond our means as a nation a good thing. Even elected officials such as Pete Stark go so far to say that the bigger our national debt, the wealthier we are.

Currie should know better. What is truly alarming is his willingness to sacrifice future generations, including his two children, on the altar of the idol of Entitlements and the long-discredited Social Gospel.

Indeed, people who can’t vote or haven’t been born yet will be saddled with the debt that these false teachers advocated in the name of Christ.  Just as God points out in Proverbs, they will be slaves to their lenders.  But at least the borrowers Solomon had in mind were directly responsible for their actions.  No one borrowed in their name and without their approval.

Worse yet, the false teachers’ use of the borrowings is nearly always counterproductive.  It is lose-lose with these guys.
