Want to know what I’m incredibly tired of? Christians speaking out against felony home invasion. I’ll never understand why self-described “followers of Christ” feel so comfortable rallying around a topic that Jesus never even mentioned.
Can you name one single time Jesus specifically addressed this issue? No, you can’t.
If you disagree with me, then by all means, point in your Bible to the verse where Jesus explicitly says, “Do not engage in either first, second, or third degree home invasion.”
Please, show me the verse where Jesus says, “Do not forcefully enter the house of another with the intent to commit a felony, larceny, or assault once inside.”
Or just save yourself the time, because those verses are nowhere to be found.
Jesus said a lot of things, but He obviously saw felony home invasion as a non-issue. But that certainly doesn’t stop millions and millions of hypocritical Christians from cutting-and-pasting other things He said in order to form a haphazard theology, based on their own personal prejudices and fears, that discriminates against career home invaders and seeks to deprive them of rights essential to their being.
Shame on you!
You call yourselves followers of Jesus, but you speak out against home invaders? Jesus never said ANYTHING about felony home invasion!
But guess what? Here are a few things Jesus really DID say:
- “Bless those who curse you, pray for those who abuse you.” –Luke 6:28
- “From one who takes away your cloak do not withhold your tunic either.” –Luke 6:29
- “From one who takes away your goods do not demand them back.” –Luke 6:30
Extremely inconvenient verses for anti-home-invaders, wouldn’t you say? These words imply that, if anything, Jesus was in favor of felony home invasion.
For those Christians who are still stuck on this issue, here’s another thing Jesus said: “Judge not.”
If you claim to be a Christian yet you judge home invaders, you need to take a long, hard look in your Bible—and then a long, hard look in the mirror.
