That is a socialist principle, is Stephen Fincher a commie?

That is an awesome article, it makes me wish I hadn’t lost track of some tithing asshole racist, poor hating shitbag I used to argue with so I could past him this:

I’ve been watching the teabagger and birther movements, and there is only one thing that can explain how so many people got so deranged and irrational so fast. God has utterly removed His grace and protection from them. “Therefore God has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden.” (Romans 9:18) “God gave them a spirit of stupor, eyes so that they could not see and ears so that they could not hear” (Romans 11:7) “Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.” (Romans 1:28). Or, as the writer Euripides put it, “Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”

Christians are not shielding America from judgment. America is shielding Christians from judgment. America doesn’t prosper because Christians tithe. Christians prosper because America tithes. The Old Testament Jews tithed and got nothing in return except a smug, self-righteous, corrupt class of priestly parasites who did nothing at all to benefit the society. I paid more than 10% of my gross salary last year in taxes, and I got roads, schools, airports, weather satellites, national parks, and a host of other things in return. Also I helped pay for efforts to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give drink to the thirsty and nurse the sick.

The Old Testament world was pretty primitive. The bar is set far higher for us. “From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked” (Luke 12:48). We know how to grow abundant food; therefore stewardship requires us to see that everyone is fairly fed. We know how to cure disease, therefore stewardship requires us to treat the sick. How are we going to answer God when he asks us about feeding the hungry and points out we didn’t even need to lift a finger to do it ourselves, all we needed to do was not obstruct the people who were doing it?

VB you might remember him actually, remember Escape Velocity from Harry’s Place comment section.

He tithed and was against all taxes and against social security, medicaid, medicare etc…

It’s only socialist if the corollary is that the working person must be given enough in return for her work to be able to eat.

So how many stood and cheered for this abject soulless piece of shit? Him and Huckabee should get together for a BBQ and burn the rest of their “Christianity”. May he fall down a flight of stairs and hit every damn one of them with his face.

This.

Look to Matthew 25:31-46 & James 2:14-26 for the appropriate teachings on this subject.

Good find. So tired of this crap. These assholes whine about big bad government but then have no problem personally benefiting from it.
