Walk With the Least of These

A birthday present fromAgape Press:
...[T]he vast majority of conservative Christians have disregarded that truth and the hundreds of other Scriptures that deal with the poor, the disenfranchised, the widows and the orphans. Dr. Diane Leclerc of Northwest Nazarene University pushes us further. It's not just that we intellectually disregard such scriptural teaching, she suggested recently at an academic conference; it is that we do so practically. Ask a Christian whether he loves the poor and he knows the correct response -- 'Sure.' Go a step further and ask for the names of the poor he has loved ... well, you may well get a steamy silence.

Republicans and the many conservative Christians that make up a good portion of that party need to face up to the teachings on compassion in Scripture. That doesn't mean, as [Howard] Dean would preach to us, that government ought to take more responsibility (although reasonable people can disagree on that one without calling each other hypocrites). And, frankly, without name-calling, I disagree with him and his party on a whole host of political concerns whether taxation, abortion, education, welfare, defense, etc.

But what we should all be able to do is this -- answer: 'What are the names of the poor people in whom I invest personal relationship, time, energy and money each week?' Howard Dean should be able to answer that adequately. As should Matt Friedeman. As should you.


If all the recent partisan bickering that has been going on among (and around) Christians leads to more of us committing ourselves to serving the poor, then that bickering will have been worth it.

Read this article, if for no other reason than it will probably be the last time you see Emma Goldman namechecked on this reliably conservative site.

Your blog contained issues relating to business hosting web
which I found quite absorbing. I would argue that business hosting web
matters are best left to the professionals in most cases.
