Virtue-signaling “Christian” Leftists are worse than the hypocrites of Matthew 6

Because at least the hypocrites did something good!

Matthew 6:1–4 “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who is in heaven. “Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

The Bible is clear that motives and behavior count. Doing your good deeds to be seen by others will merit you no rewards. This is what the hypocrites were doing at the time.

But at least they were doing something.  The virtue-signaling “Christian” Leftists mainly just beg “Caesar” to force you to fund counter-productive programs – and they think that fulfills the call in Matthew 25 to care for the “least of these.”  And yet they are simultaneously adamant that Jesus approves of abortion to the child’s 1st breath and that you should have to fund that as well. The are indescribably hostile to the “least of these” in the womb.

Their latest project is to reduce your safety and increase your taxes by removing strict guidelines on “refugees” from terror-sponsoring nations.  They falsely call it a “Muslim ban,” ignoring that 9 of the top 10 most populous Muslim countries aren’t on the lists.  And they either don’t know or don’t care that you could house 12 times the number of refugees closer to their country of origin.  These do-gooders will spare no expense (of yours) to highlight their virtue.

They also oppose the border wall, hysterically claiming it will cause “climate change.” This is another example where their malice shows through. Even if they wanted amnesty for illegals already in the country, they tip their hands by opposing a wall that would help reduce future illegals from entering the country.

As always, ask these “Christian” Leftists what they are doing with their own time and money to productively help the least of these.  Who would have thought that they would make the Matthew 6 hypocrites look good by comparison?

And keep doing truly good things with your time and your money and for God’s glory, not yours.

Matthew 5:14–16 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Hypocrites ‘R Us

Check out Al Gore’s fourth luxury home.

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife, Tipper, have added a Montecito-area property to their real estate holdings, reports the Montecito Journal… The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Oh, and let’s not forget Sting.

That’s the same guy who sang:

We can’t live here and be happy with less
With so many riches, so many souls
Everything we see that we want to possess

He’s a tremendous talent but he really needs to zip it. I don’t need a guy with 7 homes and a full time house staff of six telling me how to protect the earth.

Should we be good stewards of the planet?  Of course.

Should we trust phonies like these and let them take over the world’s economy?  Don’t be suckers.  The only man-made parts of global warming are the hypocritical deceptions perpetrated by those who profit from the scam.

Roundup

Too funny: Oh Crap. My Parents Joined Facebook.   I post that as an unapologetic Facebook “creeper” (my daughters’ term) who enjoys the humor, photos and updates from the pages of his children.   We try not to abuse the privilege by posting stupid and/or too many comments, though I imagine that it is a purely subjective assessment on our part.

Eco-fascist celebrities exposed as hypocrites— surprise!  Translation: “I’m a rich, important celebrity who frequently travels on planes for work, pleasure and to tell you that you aren’t important enough to travel on planes, and that traveling on planes is the worst thing you can do to the environment.”

The Pugnacious Irishman (is he still as pugnacious as before or has marriage mellowed him?) had a great post on how Christians should respond to the atheists’ anti-God bus sign campaign.  Short version: Don’t whine because they are using the public square to advance their views, just ask some good questions and have some answers of your own.  It isn’t hard to expose their faulty foundations if you do a little work.

Let’s see: A knee patch was considered unsafe “because the device often failed, forcing patients to get another operation,” but it was approved after ““extreme,” “unusual” and persistent pressure from four Democrats from New Jersey” who just happened to get significant donations from the manufacturer.  Go figure. 

But all the politicians said they weren’t influenced by the money!  Sure.  The law of reciprocity is a very well proven phenomena of human nature.  The Hare Krishnas give you a flower for a reason.  They know that even if you know you are being manipulated you’ll still have an impulse that you must listen to them as “repayment” for their “gift.”  So never be fooled into thinking that large donations don’t generate changes in behavior.

But you can totally trust these folks not to lie to you about health care reform.

Yes, I know that Republicans do the same sort of things.  It just shows how ridiculous our campaign finance process is and how naive voters are to put up with it, and why we always, always, always need to fight government growth.
