Those things are the obvious. It's the subtle and slow erosion of freedoms because of a gradual coma-like complacency on the part of the people allowing the power hungry elite few to bamboozle them until it's too late who are backed by a bully pulpit of cheerleaders from a radically liberal media. That's what I'm talking about. If the Bible is about anything, it's about freedom. And it comes in many forms.
Ironically, it's the secularist progressives who seem to have taken a sudden interest in the Bible - misrepresenting it like they do everything else - to make government our collective conscience. Give unto Obama what is Obama's and give unto the federal government what is the federal government's. Don't think that's what it says.
The pollution of the teachings of the Bible started over a decade ago. Pure Marxism. When you cannot abolish religion pretend to be a "friend" of it and re-educate on the "true" meaning of it.

Tell us what freedom you have lost.

There is no proof there is a heaven or hell, you just choose to believe it.

<quoted text>Don't you know, capitalism is S-C-A-R-Y. Obammy's not worried about Iran going nuclear, it is business people on Wall Street who give him nightmares (except when they are shelling out $35,000 per plate for one of his many campaign fundraisers).
Obama says income inequality is "dangerous ... the defining challenge of our time." The pope is upset that capitalism causes inequality. Progressives, facing the failures of Obamacare, are eager to change the subject to America's "wealth gap."
It's true that today, the richest 1 percent of Americans own a third of America's wealth. One percent owns 35 percent!
But I say, so what? Progressives in the media claim that the rich get richer at the expense of the poor.
But that's a lie.
Hollywood sells the greedy-evil-capitalists-cheat- the-poor message with movies like Martin Scorsese's new film, "The Wolf of Wall Street," which portrays stock sellers as sex-crazed criminals. Years before, Oliver Stone's "Wall Street" created a creepy financier, Gordon Gekko, played by Michael Douglas, who smugly gloated, "It's a zero-sum game. Somebody wins; somebody loses."
This is how the left sees the market: a zero-sum game. If someone makes money, he took it from everyone else. The more the rich have, the less others have. It's as if the economy is a pie that's already on the table, waiting to be carved. The bigger the piece the rich take, the less that's left for everyone else. The economy is just a fight over who gets how much.
But this is absurd. Bill Gates took a huge slice of pie, but he didn't take it from me. By starting Microsoft, he baked millions of new pies. He made the rest of the world richer, too.
Entrepreneurs create things.
Over the past few decades, the difference in wealth between the rich and poor has grown. This makes people uncomfortable. But why is it a problem if the poor didn't get poorer?
Progressives claim they did. Some cite government data that show middle class incomes remaining relatively stagnant. But this data is misleading, too. It leaves out all government handouts, like rent subsidies and food stamps. It leaves out benefits like company-funded health insurance and pensions, which make up increasing portions of people's pay.
And it leaves out the innovation that makes life better for both the rich and poor. Even poor people today have access to cars, food, health care, entertainment and technology that rich people lusted for a few decades ago. Ninety percent of Americans living "below the poverty line" have smart phones, cable TV and cars. Seventy percent own two cars.
But hold on, says the left. Even if the poor reap some benefits from capitalism, it's just not "fair" that rich people have so much more. I suppose this is true. But what exactly is "fair"?
Do you think to be fair be the Obammys would ever divide up one of their many luxury Va-Cays?
The only real greed nowadays stems from envy and wanting something somebody else has. Nevermind if you didn't earn it or don't want to aspire to have it by working for it yourself.

No one ever used to think like this before the progressive liberals got their big fat foot in the door and tainted American's spirit of ingenuity and self-reliance. Ever.

But we didn't have a closet Marxist in the White House or an elite inner circle of Marxists ever before either.

Why Unemployment Benefits Should Be Extended
....long-term unemployment is much more severe today than it has been in previous recession when we’ve pulled the plug on emergency benefits, and ending emergency UI will likely result in many of today’s long-term unemployed exiting the labor force — we should extend benefits into 2014.

what about those on long-term unemployment who are actually retired, on Medicare and Social Security, and often collecting pensions???...

I agree. Unfortunately, many Christians often would rather not engage in disputes over the smaller picture to focus on the bigger one. And I have to remind myself the bigger picture is what really matters in the end especially having been so outspoken on this forum and criticized for it by non-Christians - even to the point of questioning my faith. But I have to believe fighting the good fight is an obligation if for no other reason than to prevent people from being harmed by an ideology that misleads them to have power and control over them and stifles their freedoms. It goes against everything most Christians stand for. It's an ideology that even threatens our freedoms to exercise our own faith.
In the past, government went about its own business and we went about ours. But that changed in 2008.
Even though I, too, know who is in control, it's also necessary to speak out in trying to right the wrongs here on earth. Jesus didn't mince words when calling those who misled his people and tried to control them "whitewashed hypocrites". I'm just following his example and believe fellow Christians should do the same.
If Christians stand idly by and allow bad things to happen, they aren't doing anyone any service. In fact, just the opposite.
(Sorry about the lengthy response. One of my many flaws - long-windedness.)
"Whatever you do for the least of your brethren, you do for me" encompasses quite a bit and is open to much interpretation, too.

Liberals assume that "...do for the least of your brethren..." simply means Welfare Cheese and free cellphones.

A Conservative Christian or even a Conservative Atheist, for that matter, could interpret "...do for the least of your brethren..." to mean we should teach them how to multiply their own fish and loaves. Teaching self-sufficiency is far more productive spiritually than simply buying votes with other people's money.

Give unto Obama what he is forcing you to give so you won't have anything left to give to God.

That's really how secularist liberals interpret their version of the Bible.
