    How can one claim to be christian and boldly disobey God?

    1 John 3:17 But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won't help him--how can God's love be within him ?

    Republicans take a MORAL stand against helping the POOR

    Er..."Republican" is a political party.
    "Christianity" is a religion.
    Many are one but not the other. There is no requirement that requires Republicans to be Christian.

    And as for the rest of your post, I have no idea what you're talking about. Republicans donate to charities and spend more on them PERSONALLY than Democrats.

    We are turning unemployment into welfare. I have people who have been drawing it and are on their third extension. Of course, these people are also receiving food stamps and other government programs as well.

    Where's the money coming from? If people aren't working, and the government is paying them to not work, how are we funding these programs?

    Oh, that's right. By raping the working stiffs. By fining those who work hard and succeed. By shutting down industry. Oh, wait. Shutting down industry won't create income..so how are we paying these ridiculous extensions again?

    I think froggy has drunk too much progressive kool-aid!

    There are Republicans that lives "a christian lifestyle" as well as there are Democrats, libertarians etc etc.

    So please do not succumb to propagandist images of "the cruel and evil" Republican. Not all republicans,democrats etc.... are like that and you really have to meet some in order to gain a better picture of them.


    By the way--The basic concept behind charity is "help if you can" It is possible that some one may contribute time and effort to charitable organizations and so forth, but please do not expect them to give everything they have to charity--what good will come if you become dependent yourself?

    how do you know the help this passage is referring to means money? what if it means a slap in the face and telling the person to work towards become self sufficient? I believe that would be more helpful in the long run

    Conservatives are more generous with their money to charities!

    Dataset of the Day: Who is more Generous? Republicans or Democrats? | Off the Map - Official Blog of FortiusOne

    RealClearPolitics - Articles - Conservatives More Liberal Givers

    I have lots more articles proving Conservatives Give more Money to Charities than Liberals

    It just seems you re-arranged the fact just a little :lol:

    Liberals only give more Money to Charities when they use other Peoples Money instead of their own!!!!

    That is kinda dumb, sharing your talents with another is not being stingy, giving handouts to the non-needy for life is stupid.
