“If someone had enough money to live well and sees a brother in need but shows no compassion – how can God’s love be in that person?” 1 John 3:17
The Conservative party have overseen the rise in homelessness and food bank usage, hardship caused by severe sanctioning of benefits, zero hour contracts, deep cuts in public services. Yet Mrs May has called herself a Christian. I don’t understand how. Jesus said “If you love me, obey my commandments” John 14:15 yet I see no sign of that.
Jesus calls us to love our neighbour, not to exploit them. He noted that the widows offering of a few small coins was worth far more than the trumpeted gifts of the wealthy. She gave all she had to live on.
Unfortunately the Conservative government have demanded all from the poorest in society. There have been plenty of opportunities for a change of heart – now it is time for a change of government.
