Matthew 5:9: “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Matthew 26:52-54: Then Jesus said to him, “Put your sword back into its place. For all who take the sword will perish by the sword. Do you think that I cannot appeal to my Father, and he will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? But how then should the Scriptures be fulfilled, that it must be so?”

Hebrews 13:3: Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.

Ephesians 4:32: Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

2 Corinthians 13:11: Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

2 Corinthians 11:13-15: For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds.

Isaiah 1:17: Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow’s cause.

Isaiah 61:8: For I the Lord love justice; I hate robbery and wrong; I will faithfully give them their recompense, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

Proverbs 21:15: When justice is done, it is a joy to the righteous but terror to evildoers.

Proverbs 28:5: Evil men do not understand justice, but those who seek the Lord understand it completely.

Proverbs 6:16-19: There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

John 8:44: You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

Psalm 11:5: The Lord tests the righteous, but his soul hates the wicked and the one who loves violence.

Psalm 37:27-29: Turn away from evil and do good; so shall you dwell forever. For the Lord loves justice; he will not forsake his saints. They are preserved forever, but the children of the wicked shall be cut off. The righteous shall inherit the land and dwell upon it forever.

    • …there’s a clip in a tweet meg linked in the DOT that has sound…at the end he’s asked “is that your bible?” & he kind of glances at it & shrugs & replies “it’s *a* bible”

      …so very much the latter

  1. Don’t forget Matt 6:5-6

    And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites
    are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and
    in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men.

    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy
    closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray
    to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father
    which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
    Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

  2. …there was a time I could pull the full chapter & verse but those days are many moons ago…if I were the praying sort, though…I think I’d be praying that the Democrats aren’t auditioning for the part of the Levite & looking to cast the left in general & those protesting in particular in the part of the concubine

  3. The state of Christianity of the US tells you that this “power move” went over very well. Because Evangelicalism/Baptism is all about the performance of faith. You know, holding the Bible upside down. The Bible carried in the multi-thousand dollar purse held by Fascism Barbie. Not asking the congregation how you can help or if you can speak with them.

    It’s good to see the Episcopals and Catholics having none of it in public, though.
