In other words, these are people who want to signal to the world how "good/moral/just/ethical etc" they are. It is also interesting to note that the political left is the side that without any reservations has kicked Christianity to the curb in favor of Islam (in spite of all the inherent contradictions present). So what? These people are trying (and not succeeding) to be good, without God.....
What does the Word say?
Ecc 1:9 What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun.
Nothing new under the sun? You mean there were people in the Bible maybe who fit this description? You be the judge:
Matt 23:1Then Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: 2“The teachers of the law and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. 4They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
5“Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteriesa wide and the tassels on their garments long; 6they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; 7they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.
Right, ^^ so the current batch of social justice warriors are not new, they need to take their place in line behind all of the previous people who put on this show: "look at how good/moral/godly I am" .
Its kind of like all the left leaning "churches" who are for open borders, unlimited immigration but when they are called to take some of these people in they suddenly get cold feet. Or all of the politicians who themselves live in gated communities but do not want a border wall for the country. Its complete hypocrisy. As the Lord tells us above: 4They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.
And who exactly was it that our Lord attacked with the most energy? The so called "good" people, example here:
Matt 23:29“Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. 30And you say, ‘If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!
33“You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? 34Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. 35And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. 36Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.
Someone might argue "yea, but these were religious people." If someone thinks todays left leaning population is not religious about what they believe we need to consider who is really kidding themselves. Speaking of the left, the Lord left us something else to consider here:
Matt 25:33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Think about it, this is the judgement of mankind ^^. Is that all? Nope, we have one more doozy to load up for today's "good" without God crowd.
Consider, this is the Son of God saying this:
Mark 10:17As Jesus started on his way, a man ran up to him and fell on his knees before him. “Good teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
18“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.
If the only evidence you had was this ^^ alone, its all you need to sink today's posturing, left leaning world. When people feel the need to tell you how "good" they are you need to understand they are dangerous. We are seeing this more and more everyday as the wickedness, violence and outright murder in the hearts of these people becomes more obvious. The Lord did us a great service by putting Trump in office if for no other reason than to expose the violence and hatred that exists in the hearts of these so called "good" people.
It should not surprise us that the children of the enemy do what their father does:
2 Cor 11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
No one is good-except God alone. Glory to God.
grace and peace
