On Monday pro-Trump Pastor, Mark Burns said that Bernie Sanders “needed to meet Jesus.” Now, I’m not a Trump or Sanders supporter (I don’t support socialism and I say so in my article “Can You Feel The Bern?”-CLICK HERE), but I will call a spade a spade. A pastor saying that Sanders “needs to meet Jesus” is about as bad as scientist claiming auto emissions aren’t effecting the environment.
“As early as 1953, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn inquired of Detroit automobile makers as to whether research was being conducted to eliminate emissions. The response was vague. With the threat of mandatory federal regulations, the auto industry began to install crankcase blowby devices (which returned unburned gases to the combustion chambers) on their cars. This was a significant advance because crankcase blowby produced 25 percent of the engine’s hydrocarbon emissions. This equipment became mandatory on all cars sold in California beginning with the 1963 models. ” (LINK)
Any preacher worth their salt, would know that Bernie Sanders’ socialist policies parallel with Jesus’ teachings. Forgot what socialism is? CLICK HERE
Let’s look at some of Jesus’ teachings:
All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”
21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.
23 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Truly I tell you, it is hard for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24 Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
Still Not Enough?
Matthew 25: 34-40
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
Christianity is all about altruism. Jesus’ collectivist teachings are what many Christians hold dearest. It is in Christians’ selflessness that they find God, the type of selflessness that socialism valiantly attempts to regulate, but has up to this point has failed to do so.
