Christian or Not? Rev. Wallis Examines Tea Party Values

AltTulsa has a lot of respect for the Rev. Jim Wallis. He's a serious and thoughtful moral thinker, the kind we adds a lot to public discussion.

Writing in The Huffington Post, Wallis offers a critical look at the Tea Party and its values. From his perspective, the Tea Party folks are less Christian than many people suppose. 

Wallis makes some telling points about libertarianism and its conflicts with the Christian idea of caring for one's fellow humans.

We agree with Wallis. Read his essay here.

Jesus talked a LOT about helping the poor.

Can anyone explain how the biblical Jesus could ever be a current-day Republican or a prosperity gospel preacher?

"Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God."
