Q. I came across the website of the Christian Left and their mission statement seems to be legitimate in accordance with what the Bible says about what a Christian should be. I am somewhat skeptical or suspicious though. I sense that they’re subtly inferring they are something that they are not. What do you think?
A. In my opinion “left” and “right” are man made political terms that don’t belong in the same sentence with Christian. They both represent extreme political views trying to clothe themselves with religion and they both wind up distorting the Gospel message in pushing their political agenda. The Bible calls upon us to help the less fortunate among us while at the same time maintaining its high standards of behavior. It’s neither left nor right, it’s Christian.
