The Religious hypocrisy of the United States of America

Matthew 5:43-44 (New International Version, ©2011) “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor[a] and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you (Jesus Christ)
Why is it that God only blesses America; aren’t we all Gods people? Red and Yellow Black and White… Jesus said to love your enemies not blow them up. In America we blow up our enemies and ignore the neighbors. That’s ok though because our government said so, right? That’s the mentality that we have as Americans. We say that we are a good Christian country and yet we go against everything that’s taught in the book we consider so holy. Question; what gives any man the right to take the life of another man? Answer…Money and Power. It’s ashamed that mankind cannot find any other way to solve its problems without the need for bloodshed and war.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5 (New International Version, ©2011) For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (Paul the Apostle)
Paul was right. The only way to bring about true change is to end war and the enslavement of mankind. Our weapons are not made of steel and gunpowder. They are made of Love, Courage and inner peace. Believe in truth and righteousness and stand up non-violently to our oppressors. Understanding that knowledge of god is not interpreted by man but found in one’s consciousness.
We live in a world gone mad, a world full of War and Poverty. Why is it that we can look to the Bible and see; Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” And yet allow our countries leaders put the name of God on our Money?Jesus knew that money was really used to control the minds of men. He knew that the worries of taxes and wealth were just put in place to keep mankind from focusing on the main purpose of life.
What is the Purpose of Life? To me the Purpose of Life is Simple; its experience. It’s a learning process and a chance to gather useful, soul changing information. This information is eternal and infinite...It’s the experience we live. The only thing we will take with us when our physical bodies are no longer a use to us is our experience we had in our physical life. The body dies, the soul is eternal.
Jesus knew the role that money had to play in the life of men. He knew that anything that took your focus from Love was not of God. He saw that money was just a burden to the common man who never has enough. He also saw how those who had plenty made themselves think they were better than those who have little. Matthew 6:25 (New International Version, ©2011) 25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” Wake Up America.
