Here’s one reason I’m on social media:
To fight the growing trend of socialism among so-called conservative Christians.
Consider the rapid decline of “First Things,” a website that calls itself “America’s Most Influential Journal of Religion and Public Life.”
Liberals and neoconservatives do not end ISIS because they have accepted the moral code of self-sacrifice.
As demonstrated in The Iraq War, American leadership has accepted the idea that, since in modern war zones it is impossible to tell enemies apart from civilians, American soldiers must be sacrificed in order to spare the killing of civilians. What does this policy of “just war” represent, but a denial of reality?
In the argument against “social justice” we now come to several of the most important Scripture passages.
- Romans 13 and 1 Peter 2: The relationship of Christians to their earthly governments.
- Matthew 17 and 22 (and parallel passages): Christ’s view on taxation.
