ECONOMICS & The religious left is struggling. Can the cause of economic justice help? #TheWashingtonPost

Commentary by Dr. Whitesel: “Economic parity and justice remain key areas of need in America.  Churches that are leery of social action, must none-the-less  help address the growing gaps between the wealthy and the poor.  Here is one of many verses that drive home Jesus’ admonitions that Christians care for the poor, Matthew 25:34-36: ‘Then the king will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, you that are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me’.”
