“It is perhaps one of the strangest, most dumb-founding ironies in contemporary American culture. Evangelical Christians, who most fiercely proclaim to have a personal relationship with Christ, who most confidently declare their belief that the Bible is the inerrant word of God, who go to church on a regular basis, pray daily, listen to Christian music, and place God and His Only Begotten Son at the center of their lives, are simultaneously the very people most likely to reject his teachings and despise his radical message.”

    I always say, that if “Jesus” were to return to Earth, those calling themselves “Christians” would crucify him a second time.

    Keyword: radical. Working class have too much anxiety to rock the boat; the establishment provides them with the “rock” above high waters of poverty and starvation. Basic Sociology 101. They will stay superficial, take the word of W who knows all as THE BOSS, the direct descendant of Jesus and our direct connection to Him. To dig below the surface for more answers is to look for the root, the cause, the radish or radical. The are not interested and always treat and react and are mislead by the symptoms and thus are always two or more steps behind solving their own problems because they miss the causes. Thus, their racism, a symptom, crutch, and another way of avoiding improving themselves. Blame someone or something else; so much easier than constructive self criticism, growing up, and achieving a clear head and success.

    It is always the case that the teachings of Jesus and the Bible precisely match one’s own views if you are a Christian.

    Christ’s teachings:

    Charity
    Poverty
    Modesty
    Forgiveness
    Forbearance
    Everlasting torture

    Christians focus on the last one.

    Matthew Chapter 19

    21Jesus 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.”

    22When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

    23Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
