You member of The Christian Left. You are a pioneer.
We are all pioneers of social media for Christian Progressives and their allies at TCL. No bragging involved. We were the first by a long shot. We broke down the door of Christian Progressive isolation and we're still here after almost a decade! There were a few others back in the day tied to churches, magazines and books. There was nothing like The Christian left.
We created a haven where Christian Progressives and their allies could discuss the issues of the day free from fighting or harassment. Anyone who wanted to be be here was welcome, and still is.
We offer strength, encouragement, prayer, whatever.
350,000 strong! That took 9 years of us showing up every day and being here all day and most of the night.
We hope you keep coming back. You are what keeps the place interesting and attracts more people who think in the sane manner, Godly and progressive, they are similar in many ways.
The teachings of Jesus are simple. They require no Master of Divinity. Read his words often.
He said he was here to teach us a new path and establish a new covenant. Why would we not give his words and actions supremacy? To the surprise of many they revolve around treating one another the way he treated us while on earth, with forgiveness, mercy, loyalty, long-suffering, kindness, service. These are the teachings that honor God. We honor God by at least working on it and practicing the ways Jesus taught.
They take away food from people who don’t have enough as it is.
They take away medical care from those who will suffer and die without it.
They take away housing assistance and force people to live on the violent streets.
They give gigantic tax cuts to people who don’t even need them and increase taxes on the poor and the middle class.
They bully and pick on the vulnerable (the easiest targets in their minds), the LGBTQ, pregnant women in bad situations, undocumented people brought here as children who know no other country but America.
They keep wages artificially flat for decades while the cost of living skyrockets.
They go home and stand in front of their constituencies and congregations and tell them they are doing God’s work. They are ‘God’s party.’ They believe them.
God has turned over all who participate in this to being of reprobate minds. It’s the only way you can swallow it
Are we going to complain about this on the internet or take some actions?
