Liberals and leftists should pay particular attention to today’s reading.


Today’s reading comes from Matthew, 23:23-26.  It applies wonderfully to our own times.   When one reads of people concerned about Imaginary Problems, like Global Freezing/Warming, while ignoring the four or five thousand unborn babies killed yesterday, one cannot help but see how wonderfully Jesus describes the souls worthy of woe:

“Jesus said:
‘Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
You pay tithes of mint and dill and cummin,
and have neglected the weightier things of the law:
judgment and mercy and fidelity.
But these you should have done, without neglecting the others.

‘Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites.
You cleanse the outside of cup and dish,
but inside they are full of plunder and self-indulgence.
Blind Pharisee, cleanse first the inside of the cup,
so that the outside also may be clean.”

Since so many people have it coming to them, it is critically important to know what “woe” is.  One definition of “woe” is “Deep distress or misery, as from grief; wretchedness.”  “Woe” is very serious.

“Woe” describes what the souls in Hell feel forever.

Many do not want to avoid an eternity of woe.  Today, those who strain out the gnat are all around us.  They are represented by those with “deep concerns” about Imaginary Problems like Global Freezing/Warming.  Those who swallow the camel ignore the huge, obvious wrong accompanying four or five thousand daily abortions on demand.

Liberals and leftists who have any sense at all should pay particular attention to today’s reading.  One of the things they overlook?   Strainers of gnats are  swallowers of camels.  It’s automatic.  Suddenly, the painful death of five thousand aborted babies a day becomes far less important than lying and exaggerating in order to blame  weather cycles on taxable entities.

In nations with two party systems, strainers of gnats and swallowers of camels  tend to be on the left, though not exclusively.  Souls who prefer being lost cannot let themselves understand that God, Himself, told them where they would spend eternity if they persisted in straining at gnats and swallowing camels.

Jesus was speaking to the ages.  He was, and is, clear.  If souls  willfully choose to avoid realizing that it is a sin to strain at gnats and swallow camels, woe is theirs.  We may reasonably conclude that it is forever.

It is clear.  Liberals and leftists should pay particular attention to today’s reading.
