I wish I had the ear of a bunch of preachers.  I would make a you tube video or radio spot that was basically a sermon outline about politics.

Faithless/Same Bible-

Narrator: To hear some people tell it, half of Americans are faithless heathens.  The same people seems to think that they are God’s only children and that fighting with fellow Americans is the answer.  That doesn’t seem Christ like to me—where is the compassion?

President Bush 43 went Washington with compassion as the center of his moral compass; he funded more African development projects than any previous president.  Surprisingly, President Nixon created the Earned Income Tax Credit. But, those who like to be angry have taken over the Republican Party and push good people into the corner or out altogether.

During this election year, you have prominent GOP leaders talking about forcing children that receive free lunch to clean the school.  Is humiliating needy kids Christ-like?

The attacks on President Clinton and now on President Obama draw you to Psalms over and over.

Psalms 9:18: For the needy shall not always be forgotten: the expectations of the poor shall not perish for ever.

Psalms 34:6  This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his trouble.

Psalms 41: 1,7 Blessed is he that considereth the poor: the Lord will deliver him in time of trouble. All that hate me whisper together against me: against me do they devise my hurt.

Psalms 54:3 For strangers are risen up against me, and oppressors seek after my soul.

Psalms 69:4 They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty; then I restored that which I took not away.

Psalms 82: 3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy.

Psalms 109: 1 Hold not the peace, O God of my praise; For the mouth of the wicked dand the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.

 

President Obama and Democrats welcome the opportunity to address the nation’s problems in a constructive way with the Republicans.  Psalms 133:1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity.  But, the other side think they alone own America—they want their country back? Who took your country and when was it given solely to you?

Psalms 118:22-23 The stone that the builders refused has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.  That stone was Jesus and what could be more Christ-like than for the people who have been rejected by the elite and powerful to become the cornerstone of our nation.

Leaders on both sides can say what they will to each other but we won’t improve as a nation until the concept of better living reaches the most rejected among us—the cornerstones of the future.
