Oh, this is good. I couldn't resist.
"I can't change anything," Messiah says - refuses to come back to "reinstate" it.
Christians cannot be union membersIf they have enough money to bailout the auto industry, why can’t they put it on the national debt? If the automakers get it, unless they get rid of the labor unions, they will be back in the same condition in six months time.
In the 20th chapter of Matthew, Jesus outlawed the labor unions and he hasn’t been back to reinstate it. Jesus said in Luke 3:14 “Be content with your wages.” Phil 4:11 “In whatsoever state you are in be content.” Hebrews 13:5 “Be content with what you have.” In Tim 6:8 “With food and raiment be content.” Titus 1:7 “Be no striker. Do not lie. Do not steal. Do not murder.”
Which of these commands can you do and God will overlook? None of them.
The labor union is greedy and they will strike if that is what it takes to get their employers in trouble again.
It is impossible to be a Christian and a union member. The two have altogether different attitudes. If anyone disagrees with me on this, get your Bible down and wipe the dust off and argue with Jesus about it. “I can’t change anything,” he said.
For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard.
Titus 1:7, by the way:
For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre;
And the soldiers likewise demanded of him, saying, And what shall we do? And he said unto them, Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely; and be content with your wages.
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
There is no "Timothy 6:8."
Jesus never said “I can’t change anything.”
