Christian Republicans, Have you forgotten what the Bible says about the poor?
Prov. 19:17 When you help the poor you are lending to the Lord--and he pays wonderful interest on your loan!
1 John 3:17 But if someone who is supposed to be a Christian has money enough to live well, and sees a brother in need, and won't help him--how can God's love be within him ?
Prov. 14:31 Anyone who oppresses the poor is insulting God who made them. To help the poor is to honor God.
Prov. 28:27 If you give to the poor, your needs will be supplied! But a curse upon those who close their eyes to poverty.
Why are we (Christians) justified in making laws concerning abortion, gay marriage, etc based on what our Bible teaches... but completely turn our heads to the scriptures about helping the poor when making decisions to cut government assistance?
