Christianity explained by those who don’t understand it.

Some people think they understand how to explain Christianity to others, even when they don’t understand it themselves.

Christian principles under attack from illiterates.

So much fail, so little space, the author of this doesn’t understand Christian principles and shouldn’t try telling those who know better what they are. Starting with the second frame, here are the fails.

Fail one: Christian principles call for people to be charitable, not to have the government steal from some at the point of a gun to give to others. Studies have shown that Christians give more to charity than others.

Fail two: Christians ministries to prisons far outnumber all other outreach programs – combined. The largest prison outreach program is a Christian ministry.

Fail three: We should pay our taxes without complaint? Really, where is that found in the Bible? Not where Jesus says to render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and unto God what is God’s because it would mean we have no input into how our country is run, and in this country we are the Caesar.

Fail four: We should show love and mercy freely. Yep, no problem there, the fail is with the contention that Christians don’t. The idiot that penned this pile of offal doesn’t understand how Christians can hate the sin but love the sinner, but it is in fact how Christians do it.

Fail five: We should avoid violence. Here’s another false principal from someone who should know better if they are going to criticize Christianity. There is this in Luke: “And He said to them, “When I sent you out without money belt and bag and sandals, you did not lack anything, did you?” They said, “No, nothing.”  And He said to them, “But now, whoever has a money belt is to take it along, likewise also a bag, and whoever has no sword is to sell his coat and buy one.” Doesn’t sound like never resorting to violence does it?

Fail six: Again there is no problem about being gracious to foreigners but it is the fact that the problem people have is not with foreigners, it is with foreigners who are here illegally. Why should we be ‘gracious’ to people who break our laws, take a place that should rightfully belong to a person who comes here legally and suckles at the government teat taking money and opportunity from the poorest of our own citizens?

Fail seven: We should seek to end social injustice throughout the world. Again the author supposes that because Christians don’t rally behind –his- idea of what social justice is they aren’t for it at all. No, Christians are for justice for all, it’s just when you add that word social to justice you get socialism, not justice. Why should Christians be for a system that has proven to fail every time it has been tried?

The final fail is the contention that Christians are against gay marriage, and some are but some don’t care about whether gays wish to marry or not, they just don’t want to be forced to participate. Again the author fails to understand Biblical principals or Christians. They should stick to what they know and can understand.
