I’m not too much into religion, and don’t even like to discuss it much, but the “in your face” Evangelicals really irritate me, because they spend more time talking about Jesus than they do living by his lessons.
This post is brought on due to this article, which was linked at LewRockwell.com in the blog, then strangely removed.
And this is the author credit,
Michael Spencer is a writer and communicator living and working in a Christian community in Kentucky. He describes himself as “a postevangelical reformation Christian in search of a Jesus-shaped spirituality.” This essay is adapted from a series on his blog, InternetMonk.com
Even if you are an atheist, you might want to give the article a read. If you are a theist, you might want to check out the InternetMonk blog, on a quick perusal, I found it fairly interesting, considering it’s really not my cup of tea.
But back to the title of this post, the bankruptcy of evangelicals, baptists, catholics, protestants, lutherans, whatever is tied directly to the fact that as long as they tolerate a state that steals, and a state that murders, then they are bankrupt in their beliefs. Anyone who advocates murder is not a libertarian. That goes for your Eric Dondero Libertarian Republicans as well. It is not acceptable to take one innocent life in a war (even to harm an innocent or their property), morality and justice does not wither under tests of scale, only weakness of character.
The democratic institutions which have harmed Christians and their values, as much as it has teased them with empowerment, are also to be rejected as being in direct conflict with the values of Jesus and the Kingdom of Heaven.
Any Christian who lectures on any social values, while supporting the corrupt, immoral, and sinful state and it’s lies, violence and theft, has no credibility at all
I’m an atheist, but I was a theist at one time. All that changed, is that I understand that morality doesn’t have to originate with divine decree. It can be self-evident, that the rational path, the most productive path, is peaceful, voluntary, free market relations. The likes of which Jesus of the Bible, advocated through his disciples’ writings.
