    Jerry Falwell, Jr. vs. Jesus

    Jerry Falwell, Jr.:

    A poor person never gave anybody charity, not of any real volume
    https://www.newsweek.com/evangelical...r-says-1276488

    Jesus:
    Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everythingóall she had to live on.Ē
    I wish the media would stop giving this guy airtime to speak for Christianity.

    I've never had much use for the Falwells. They would be better served sticking to preaching the Gospel message.

    I'm not a fan of the Falwells, but if you read the original WaPo article instead of the Fakenewsweek spun version, it comes across differently. I don't find his views there objectionable.

    I've found that a number of sites will allow you in a couple to half a dozen times, then start shaking you done for cash.

    Here's the relevant part:

    Source: WaPo


    Is it hypocritical for evangelical leaders to support a leader who has advocated violence and who has committed adultery and lies often? I understand that a person can be forgiven their sins, but should that person be leading the country?

    When Jesus said weíre all sinners, he really meant all of us, everybody. I donít think you can choose a president based on their personal behavior because even if you choose the one that you think is the most decent ó letís say you decide Mitt Romney. Nobody could be a more decent human being, better family man. But there might be things that heís done that we just donít know about. So you donít choose a president based on how good they are; you choose a president based on what their policies are. Thatís why I donít think itís hypocritical.

    Thereís two kingdoms. Thereís the earthly kingdom and the heavenly kingdom. In the heavenly kingdom the responsibility is to treat others as youíd like to be treated. In the earthly kingdom, the responsibility is to choose leaders who will do whatís best for your country. Think about it. Why have Americans been able to do more to help people in need around the world than any other country in history? Itís because of free enterprise, freedom, ingenuity, entrepreneurism and wealth. A poor person never gave anyone a job. A poor person never gave anybody charity, not of any real volume. Itís just common sense to me.
