‘UNBIBLICAL’: JIM WALLIS LAMBASTES ‘POLITICAL EXTREMISTS’ RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GOV’T SHUTDOWN — AND WARNS OF GOD’S JUDGEMENT

Progressive faith leader Jim Wallis, founder of Sojourners, is joining a chorus of Americans who are frustrated over the government shutdown. In a video monologue this week, he unleashed his views on the matter, calling the closure “unbiblical” and hitting back at the “political extremists” he believes are responsible for it.

How exactly is the “political extremists” (you know he means the Tea Party Republicans) responsible for the shutdown? Harry Reid and the Democrats are the ones blocking negotiations and refuse to give an inch. And wasn’t it Reid who stated he wouldn’t save a child with cancer? What does that tell you about how negotiations are going?

While most of the debate surrounding the shutdown is partisan in nature, Wallis argues that the conundrum is deeper than mere strife between the parties; in fact, he says it’s spiritual.

“There is a deeper problem here than politics. There’s a theological problem,” he proclaims in the clip. “As a Christian I want to say shutting down government is unbiblical. Yes, that’s what I’m saying — it’s unbiblical.”

Wallis goes on to instruct readers to explore what the Bible has to say on the matter and specifically cites the 13th chapter of the Book of Romans (the same book liberals and many scared pastors are told to twist in order to keep their 501c3 status), which discusses the importance of complying with government. This chapter reads, in part:

“Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority?”

Of course, context is key and there are different interpretations of these verses. If the government is seen as overstepping boundaries, some would surely argue that Wallis’ interpretation isn’t quite air-tight (it isn’t). But in this case, he clearly sees it as applying perfectly to the current situation unfolding at the federal level.

“Government’s role is to protect us from evil, to promote the good. We call that the common good,” continued Wallis. (If the govt is the evil, how then can they protect us from it? Should it be assumed that Wallis has forgotten the statements by our Founding Fathers on this matter? “The scriptures make clear throughout Isaiah, Jeremiah, Amos, the Book of Kings, that rulers, kings and governments are responsible for how they treat the poorest and most vulnerable. They’re judged by that by God.”

Has Wallis forgotten we are all judged by God? This does not mean, however, that we should go along with and support something that which we know to be evil. Jesus Himself questioned authority where it was necessary. No man, including govt, comes before God. So then, Wallis, is the Father in Heaven your God or is the govt?

The Sojourners leader decried the “political extremists who want to shut down the government,” pointing out two reasons that he believes they are acting in a non-Biblical manner. First, he says that their opposition to the government is, on its face, problematic (so then you would find the very founding of America to be problematic?) — and second, he says that they are opposed to the poor.(How is it that they are opposed to the poor? You think legislation that is shutting down businesses, putting people out of work, and skyrocketing costs of insurance, amongst other things, is in support of the poor?)

“They get hostile to the poor, because they’re hostile to government,” Wallis said. ”So, those of you that want to shut down the government, I’d say read your Bibles.” ((Now where I might agree many people, conservatives included, have misinterpreated the Bible and even adopted new theology and twisting verses to support such; I have to say it is you, Wallis, that needs to read your Bible. Pray to Jesus to open your eyes and then read your Bible. You are pushing marxism and totalitarianism along with the destruction of the very faith you claim to hold. How? Simply by supporting those that are bringing it upon us.)

He concludes by warning that God will hold everyone accountable for what unfolds during these “difficult days.”

Yes, God WILL hold everyone accountable. So Wallis, I suggest you pray and repent while there is still time. You are laying in Satans bed and preaching from the Synagogue of Satan. You may not be aware of this, so I do not blame you for it, Wallis. You and God both know where your heart and intentions are. The question is, will you be able to recognize you have fallen and allow Christ to pick you back up? I will be praying for you Wallis.

With over 330,000 different denominations spanning the globe it is impossible to agree with everyone who professes they are a Christian. But when we see a Christian brother or sister who has clearly gone astray, we must help them get back on path. If we find a wolf in sheeps clothing, we must expose them and save our brethren. This is why I had to comment on this article by the TheBlaze. I cannot say whether or not Wallis is a lost soul or wolf in sheeps clothing. In time that will be seen. He and God both know the answer.

Please pray for Wallis in that if he is a lost soul, he may make a return to Christ. Or if he is a wolf in sheeps clothing, he will be exposed as such or repent and allow himself to be saved by Christ.
