Dan Crenshaw SLAPS DOWN ridiculous liberal pastor justifying socialism with the BIBLE

William Barber is a very far left socialist liberal who goes out of his way to pervert the Bible to support his communist beliefs. As you can imagine, the Democrats and MSNBC just adore this guy. That’s why he was one of their DNC speakers.

Here’s where the man of much cloth said:

“When we embrace moral language, we must ask does our policy care for the least of these? Does it lift up those who are most marginalized and dejected in our society? Does it establish justice? That is the moral question,” said Rev. William Barber, who has spoken at several DNC meetings. “If someone calls it socialism, then we must compel them to acknowledge that the Bible must then promote socialism, because Jesus offered free health care to everyone, and he never charged a leper a co-pay.”

DNC chair Tom Perez and others in audience gave a standing ovation before Barber took a shot at Republicans, saying, “If you want to have a moral debate, bring it on, baby.”

“The Bible says a nation will be judged by how it treats the poor and the sick and women and the immigrants,” Barber said. “The Bible says that God makes it rain on the just and unjust alike. If you want to call caring for folks socialism, then the Constitution is a socialist document because it calls us to promote the general welfare and to establish justice.”



Crenshaw is right. There is a clear distinction between us individually helping the poor and the sick and the stranger, and voting to steal money from the wealthy in order to do it. The Bible is pretty clear that it is asking us individually to help people. And in the Biblical times, the state was pretty much evil and hunting down Christians. Much like the Democrats of today… .

But I digress. I don’t think these issues are so simple as to be able to state exactly what is demanded of us. The state as it exists today is simply not the kind of state that existed in Biblical times. We may have different expectations and requirements from God. What it says is “give to Caesar the things that belong to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.” That was about taxes and about what is expected of us.

Is that an admonition to participate in a totalitarian government that owns the means of production? Literally no one for about a hundred years thought that since the founding of our government, until the wretched foul progressives took it upon themselves to deny the Constitution for the sake of their statist schemes.

In any case, the matter is much more complex than Barber pretends it to be, and it is insidious for him to present the Biblical message so incorrectly. The Bible warns us against that, too.

Here’s a better video of what he said, though the audio is still pretty bad:
