He told us how to live

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Is God a con­ser­va­tive? Christ gave us the guide­lines for Chris­tian liv­ing. He taught us to love God, love one an­other, do good to those who harm us, treat oth­ers as we want to be treated. Take care of the widow and the sick, feed the poor. Re­mem­ber those in prison as if you were their fel­low pris­on­ers, and those who are mis­treated as if you your­selves were suf­fer­ing.

This doesn’t sound like the Repub­li­can agenda. How does the South— that solid block of red states known as the Bible Belt—equate Chris­tian be­lief with the Repub­li­can agenda? Je­sus told the rich young man that it is eas­ier for a camel to go through the eye of a nee­dle than for him to en­ter the king­dom of God.

Take a good look at the Repub­li­can health-care bill. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The old and sick get stiffed. Chris­tians, do you care? STEPHANY BAI­LEY North Lit­tle Rock
