God is love - a Lenten series 8 Love chooses the weak
1 Corinthians 1:27 But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; 28 God chose what is low and despised in the world, things that are not, to reduce to nothing things that are, 29 so that no one might boast in the presence of God.
If you are oppressed, take heart, if you benefit from oppression, listen up. If you live in America, if you are white, if you are christian, if you are middle class (I am all of these) you are not oppressed. The war on christmas is fake. Being asked to treat people of other religions equally is not oppressing your own faith.
Who is despised in this country? Non-white people. Non-christian people. Non-straight people. Non-rich people.
Whose side does God choose?
