WWJD....11/16/23

The Social Gospel is making a comeback.

This movement emerged back in the 19th Century to address the needs of the poor and disenfranchised among us.

As opposed to White Christian Nationalism, that began under the Reagan Administration, and which is all about gathering wealth for a few, the teachings of Jesus are central to Social Gospel adherents.


Christ would have never permitted the robber barons to run free while exploiting children in their factories, nor would He have allowed the wanton destruction of the environment in the quest for profits, to name a few.

One of the more vocal adherents of this philosophy is Shawn Fain, the president of the United Auto Workers who recently orchestrated one of the largest compensation packages for workers in the history of organized labor.

Perhaps the most famous line that Jesus allegedly spoke occurs in Matthew 7:12 when he commanded us to “do unto others as you would have them do to you.”


Everything else pales in comparison to that admonition.

This topic is ripe for further exploration and exposition. I have paraphrased JFK to express my Christian beliefs: Ask not what Jesus can do for you, ask what you can do for Jesus.
