I was triggered today by a bumper sticker:
I guess if you want to freebase your own Gospel & fail the Matthew 4:9 test, you might believe this drivel: pic.twitter.com/OLLkPzhFfb

The Obama and Hillary stickers you’d expect were around this little bit of noise.
If you have the guts to read the Gospels, all four, you will quickly see that the modern SJWs are the antithesis of what Christ was here about.
I can understand, here in Northern Virginia, literally half a mile from Franconia Road (boasting every denomination you’ve ever heard of, and then some), people would be wanting to find some way to rationalize treating the State as God, so that they have some theological cover for doing the Devil’s work.
This was the third temptation of Christ:
Matt 4:8-9 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
Oh, deluded one: the Gospel has everything to do with your internal renewal, and nothing whatsoever to so with “social” anything. You want to know who the social acivists of Jesus’ day were? The Pharisees!
That’s right: this driver has fooled zitself into becoming precisely the thing it claims to oppose, attempting to come up with external measures from bullying to legislation to accomplish that which can only be done by grace.
Northern Virginia is a land of copious churches and scant faith. Whatever your faith, if you want to claim to follow Christ, do, please, read the Gospel prayerfully and let it revitalize your life. If you cherry pick the Bible for bumper stickers you think can be repurposed to serve some secular agenda, you might be working for the wrong team.
