    Of the 12, the only one who advocated for social justice was Judas. He objected that an expensive ointment was ( wasted ) on Jesus rather than being sold to give handouts to the poor.
    Today’s monetized churches prefer to be appealing to the unchurched rather than to teach and train the body to worship Jesus in Spirit and in truth.

    Where are the Watchmen?
    I recently looked at the list of most popular ” Christian ” authors. Only 2 aren’t completely heretical.
    Where are the shepherds attacking the wolves?
    Only time any church attempts to practice biblical discipline is against any who question the pastors vision. Seeker friendly music is about entertainment than reverent worship.
    Were busy looking to the horizon for the apostasy. But paraphrasing Pogo, ” weve been watching out for the great apostate church, and we is it.”

  3. Mary anointed Jesus with expensive perfume and Judas Iscariot protested that it could be sold and the proceeds given to the poor (John 12:3-8). Malcolm Muggeridge commented on this by noting that it was the disciple who was most strongly committed to social justice who ended up betraying Jesus.

    Communism and socialism require the leaders to be atheists and haters of Christianity and the Bible. Stalin had a plan to destroy all the Jews in Russia but that very night he had a massive heart attack; God took him out. America is the only nation founded upon Jesus Christ and the Bible, which allowed for our freedoms, biblical morality and justice in the courts. Our Constitutional Republic gives freedom of worship to all religions and freedom to pursue your own future by hard work. God has prospered America because of our respect for Israel and the Jews. God looks at the heart, not our skin color. If we look at the Communist and socialistic countries it is plain to see that most of the people are poor, unhappy and in slavery with no freedom to speak or worship; the leaders or elites are the only ones with enough to eat, who live in luxury. A government without God does not work, it oppresses the masses.

    Good summary… Let us act with compassion, be charitable, and pursue true justice. Let us be wise in our actions, clear in our language, and honest in our motives.

    Do not defraud, violate the rights, or take advantage of another in “any” matter… including taking without permission… theft.

    1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:4 That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour;5 Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:6 That no man go beyond and defraud [violate the rights and take advantage of… NASB] his brother in any matter: because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have forewarned you and testified.7 For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.8 He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us his holy Spirit.

    Zechariah 8:15 So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.16 These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:17 And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the Lord.

    Ephesians 4:25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
