So they say they want to have this country run are more Christian principles, they are overlooking more than Matthew 25. In the OT before the time of the Kings God set up a system of government that was administered by the Levites. This went far beyond the issues of sacrifice to atone for sin. It actually regulated business. There's that scary regulation word, I know. Among other things the wealthy farmers and herdsmen had very specific rules about what they were suppose to tithe, what they were allowed to harvest from their fields and cull from their flocks.
I'm not suprised. Check out this Newsweek article;
The Taliban is showing the anti-Muslim, anti-Mosque protests as a recruiting tool, and it's working.
What's going on today in this country is that the shareholders or wealthholders are running a simple "protection racket" that is very similar to the protection rackets that are stereotypically associated with the MOB or Mafia of years ago. It used to be that if you wanted to "do commerce" in certain areas or neighborhoods in the "mob controlled areas", then you had to fork over some of the revenues collected by your business.
Much of the health care bill passed by the Obama Administration will not take effect until 2014, and even then its assistance to many will be weak or hard to acquire. Many people, including myself, are taking matters into our own hands to get health care for ourselves or our families, extreme measures that would not be necessary in any other industrialized country.
Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and a few of the other accepted "heavies' ( religious systems ) are NOT religions...........
I am putting this post here with some hesitation. It's not about Beck, Palin, the Tea Baggers, the upcoming election, or the disappearing middle class, but it is something personal, different, and has some relevance to the progressive mindset plus the issue of commercial animal breeding as opposed to homegrown pets. It also explains what has been going on with me over the past few weeks.
A Course in Miracles defines Christ as the expression of unconditional love. The anti-christ is the opposite of that; the anti-christ is the expression of hate and divisiveness. The Christ is oneness and union. The anti-christ is separation an. Glenn Beck is an anti-christ because he does not speak in terms of love. He speaks about victimization at the hands of some "other" (the "other" keeps changing forms) who is taking away "our" freedom.
