Bishop Lazar: What IS Romans 13?

THIS is what the Evangelicals have become… have a care that we don’t follow them into the abyss

________________________

This is another example of the crookedness of Evangelicalism. If one must be subject to the authority without question, then, when the authority permits abortion and the rights of groups you don’t agree with, you must passively accept it. Where were the Romans 13ers during Mr Obama’s government? It’s of no avail to claim that you shouldn’t be subject to corrupt governments (or even perverse governments) since Apostle St Paul spoke these words when Nero was the authority, and one also had Caligula, Heliogabalus, Tiberius and the like in absolute authority. Therefore, one had to be completely subject and obedient to these authorities. However, you see now the American Christian is supposed to be subject and obedient to Mr Trump, perhaps in the same way that the Roman Catholic Church supported Mr Mussolini, and in return, the Vatican received the status of an independent nation. Romans 13 appears to be all or none if one takes it in any way as a literal command, rather than an effort to stave off government persecution of Christians. After all, St Paul had to demonstrate that Christianity wasn’t some subversive organisation. That’s the real meaning of Romans 13… at least, the first half of it.

12 June 2018. Why Poverty?

________________________

Poverty exists because of greed. Most of those responsible call themselves “conservatives”… when you read hokum written by amoral Mammon-worshipping filth like Rod Dreher, Pat Buchanan, or James Jatras, understand that they champion a society where the rich run roughshod over all the rest of us and their Upper Middle running dogs (like them) snatch a disproportionate share of the pie.

There’s enough for everyone to have a moderate sufficiency. The fact that they don’t is due to the greed of the ruling class and their grasping Upper Middle minions. By the way…. “liberals” such as the Clintons, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi are no better than “conservatives” are. They’re just as fervent in their worship of money and power. However, they try to hide it under a smarmy exterior, which makes them worse than Dreher and Jatras are (and those two are rather deep in their espousal of a ruthless and cruel Mammon-ruled society). At least the “conservatives” are openly feral and honestly anti-religious (while mouthing pietistic religiosity, no less), they’re not liars like the “liberals” are.

Sad, ain’t it? The Republicans are godless worshippers at Mammon’s Altar, and the Dems aren’t far behind them in fervour for Filthy Lucre and the Almighty Dollar. I voted for Dr Jill and Brother Ajamu… I didn’t vote for evil…

Bishop Lazar: “One Can Make a Lot of Money Peddling Fear”

________________________

One can make a lot of money peddling fear. Perhaps, love isn’t remunerative enough for them. The “love” that they mention is so bound to fear and “only if” that it’s more “control” than love. We find such not only as a hallmark of Evangelicalism but also as a hallmark of parish cultism in our own Orthodox Church.

Bishop Lazar: “Morality is One of the Most Misused and Misconstrued Words in the English Language”

________________________

Morality is one of the most misused and misconstrued words in the English language. Perhaps, only the word love is more distorted and tormented. It seems that totally amoral Christians in America reduced morality to the external behaviour of the lower classes, and it doesn’t imply to the honesty or dishonesty, the integrity or lack of integrity, truth or lies on the part of the ruling classes in America. These ruling classes turned the American Constitution, surely one of the greatest documents in history, to toast, and the American people don’t even seem to care. Secondly, the evangelical wing of the Christian church is totally indifferent and shows itself to be morally bankrupt.
