Evangelical Christians scream about following Jesus to everyone who will listen, yet they don’t follow Christ’s rules themselves.
Here are the most glaring ways today’s Evangelicals reject Christ’s message.
Not All Christians (or Evangelicals)
Don’t get us wrong – this isn’t about Christianity in general. It’s about the subset of Christians, who typically identify as evangelicals, who seem to go against Christ’s teachings.
Jesus preached that only God could judge someone. His famous remark, “Let he who is free from sin cast the first stone,” doesn’t seem to matter to modern-day Evangelicals, who constantly look their nose down on others.
Love Thy Neighbor
The message of love is lost on modern Evangelicals, who hate everyone who looks different. Jesus didn’t say, “Love thy neighbor unless they’re a different race, creed, ethnicity, gender….” You get the picture.
Feed the Poor
Evangelicals can’t stand the thought of their hard-earned tax dollars going toward “the poors.” What would Jesus say about those who constantly vote to limit resources to the needy?
Take Care of the Sick
Jesus famously healed the sick, treating lepers and helping the blind see. Today’s Christians may not have his healing powers, but they could easily support programs like universal health care that would ensure the sick don’t suffer.
Don’t Worship Money
“It’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God,” said Jesus. Yet Evangelicals worship the rich over their obsession with money.
Support the Government
Jesus said, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and to God what belongs to God.” He realized government is essential to a functioning society and never said anything resembling the anti-government rhetoric today’s Evangelicals spew.
Take Care of Each Other
One of Jesus’s most important lessons is to take care of each other. He preached love, humanity, and caring for your fellow man – regardless of where he’s from.
Turn the Other Cheek
Forgiveness makes a kinder society. Jesus said we should turn the other cheek, yet Evangelicals seem to be the angriest people on the planet who only care about “getting back at the libs.”
The meek shall inherit the Earth. Based on how many of them act, it seems like Evangelicals think “meek” means prideful, boastful, and arrogant.
The biggest warmongers in the world call themselves Evangelicals. They’re happy to invade foreign countries and send armies to our borders. How does that match Jesus’s message that we should all attempt peace?
The Golden Rule
“Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” From their behavior, it seems like Evangelicals WANT people to treat them with disdain.
Be a Light To the World
Jesus asked his followers to show God’s love and grace through their actions of service and humility. Modern Evangelicals act more like a black hole on the world, sucking in everyone’s happiness in the name of their biased worldview.
Be Like Jesus
No one would take issue with modern Christianity if modern Christians acted more like Jesus. People oppose it because the loudest Christians behave in ways completely antithetical to Christ’s teachings.
We’re not the only ones who believe modern Evangelicals lost Christ’s message. A lead editor of Christianity Today also sounded the alarm, saying Evangelical’s call Jesus “Too Woke.”
