Matthew 25; 34 – 40

 

  34 Then shall the King say unto them on his aright hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

  35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

  36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

  37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? Or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

  38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? Or naked, and clothed thee?

  39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

  40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Mission Statement:  

To provide a clearing house of Christian left scholarship, and promote activities that advance truly Christian principles in society.

Problem Statement:

Ten years into the new millennium, an active, vocal and reactionary segment of U.S. society has successfully co-opted the term ‘Christian.’ Adherents to these disparate and decidedly un-Christian groups consistently support war; endorse financial benefits for society’s richest members; disdain and oppose government assistance to the poor; ignore scientific evidence of global warming; condemn members of society who’s view of marriage differ from their own, and consistently seek to legislate society to adhere to their strict view of behavior.

The popular media, seeking ever-greater audiences and revenues, has enabled these groups to identify Christianity by their own, distorted standards.  Seldom, if ever, is a more realistic view of Christianity presented to the public.

Solution:

                The time has come when principled Christians, those who look to the teachings and examples of the Savior Jesus Christ, must unite to have their voices heard. Traditionally, these individuals have been content to work for peace and social justice with a variety of different groups under a liberal umbrella. The A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition, MoveOn.org, War is a Lie (formerly AfterDowningStreet) and several others have provided a means by which Christians were able to work for policies and programs that truly reflect Christian principles. These individuals worked alongside Jews, Muslims, atheists, and principled people of all beliefs to prevent or stop war; to change health care in the U.S. from a privilege granted to the few, to a right to which each citizen is entitled; to give a higher priority to the beauties God has created than to the profits corporations covet, and to allow each individual to live in the dignity that he or she chooses for him or herself.

                These organizations have served, and continue to serve, a great purpose in the world, and ‘The Christian Left’ in no way denigrates or replaces them. Rather, it provides a structure for scholarship and political activity based on Christian principles.
