Why Social Justice Is Killing Synagogues and Churches
If you go into a Reform or Conservative temple, itâ€™s likely that you will notice two things: The congregation is becoming smaller and older. Across the United States and Europe, Jewish congregations are aging at a rapid rate, a phenomenon increasingly common for mainstream religions across the high-income world.
Overall, the American Jewish populationâ€”unlike that of demographically robust Israelâ€”is on the decline, with a loss of 300,000 members over the past decade, a number expected to drop further by 2050. The median age of members of Reform congregations is 54, and only 17 percent of members say they attend religious services even once a month. Four-fifths of the movementâ€™s youth are gone by the time they graduate high school. The conservative movement is, if anything, in even worse shape: At its height, in 1965, the Conservative movement had 800 affiliated synagogues throughout the United...
Just read this blog posting on the topic of social justice. I don't know anything about the blog's or the book's author but my quick read showed some interesting and prophitable ways of viewing social justice. The bottom line is that the evil of social justice is the potential undoing of the country.
"I KNOW THE BLASPHEMY OF THEM WHICH SAY THEY ARE JEWS, AND ARE NOT, BUT ARE THE SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN."--THE MESSIAH
NOT ALL TRUE-HOLY-BIBLE-+SEMITES+ &-OR +HEBREWS+ ARE PROFESSING "JEWS"; JUST AS NOT ALL PROFESSING "JEWS" ARE BLOOD/DNA/GENETIC DESCENDANTS OF SHEM, ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB/ISRAEL, JUDAH, KING-DAVID OR THE LORD JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH IN ISRAEL HIMSELF !
& DID YOU KNOW THAT TO BE AN ANTI-ARAB, ANTI-ARABIC &-OR +ANTI-ISHMAEL-/-ANTI-ISHMAELI+ IS TO +ALSO+ BE AN +ANTI-SEMITE+ &-OR +ANTI-SEMITIC+ TOO ?
LOOK, IN THE NATION OF ISRAEL TODAY, ABOUT 90% OF THE PROFESSING JEWISH POPULATION ARE ACTUAL-BLOOD/DNA/ GENETIC-BIBLICAL-LITERAL-+++SEMITES+++; WHEREAS, IT'S THE +OPPOSITE+ HERE IN THE U.S.A. !
AS ABOUT 90% OF PROFESSING "JEWS" LIVING HERE IN THE U.S.A. TODAY ARE BLOOD/DNA/GENETIC-+ASHKENAZI+-"JEWS" &-OR DIRECT-BLOOD/DNA/GENETIC-DESCENDANTS OF +ASHKENAZ+ & +++JAPHETH+++;
& NOT BLOOD/DNA/GENETIC-DESCENDANTS OF:
#1-+++SHEM+++ [WHERE WE GET SEM/SEMITE/SEMITIC] !
#2-+++ABRAHAM+++ [THE HEBREW]
#4-JACOB [RENAMED BY GOD: ISRAEL]
#5-JUDAH [WHERE WE GET THE WORD "JEW"]

Ashkenazi are descendants of the diaspora, â€śthe twelve tribes which are scattered abroad.â€ť I donâ€™t know what your motive is for publishing falsehoods about them, but I donâ€™t see how it can be good.
There will come a time when people will not put up with sound doctrine, instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
It's the flooding of fake modern "bible" that is doing the killing.
"Americaâ€™s mainstream churches have lost 5 million members, and even the once vibrant evangelical movement is losing adherents outside of the developing world. Ever more churches, particularly in urban areas, are being abandoned, turned into bars, restaurants, and luxury condos. And nothing augurs worse for the future than the fact that American millennials are leaving religious institutions "
I think people here knew that mainline denominations were losing members, but may have not connected it to their positions on Social Justice. What is interesting about this article is the discussion of American Jewry losing members as well. Whether that is due to their position on Social Justice or just an aging population is another question. I have heard of 'non-religious' Jews who usually adopt a Leftist/Socialist viewpoint, or just go along with being Democrats. Mark Levin is one Jewish guy who is not on the Left, but he doesn't make his religion a big deal on his talk show. You just can't think of any Jewish evangelism going on.
More on Rome's false gospel of â€śsocial justiceâ€ť from Richard Bennett's timely article entitled:
The Roman Catholic Agenda Embedded in the Manhattan Declaration
"EDITORâ€™S NOTE: Of the original 152 Signers, over 100 were â€śEvangelicals,â€ť including Dr. Daniel Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary . .
Rome Pushes Ecumenical Social Agenda in the Manhattan Declaration The Website of the Manhattan Declaration states that the purpose of the document is â€śsimply to speak with one voice on the most pressing moral issues of our dayâ€¦
However, under the Website section entitled, â€śMessage to all signers of the Manhattan Declaration,â€ť the clearly stated purpose is a call for a political movement. This shows that, in fact, the Manhattan Declaration is only the latest step in the downgrade into implementing Catholic social doctrine. There is yet another purpose; one primarily stated in Vatican Council II and post-Vatican Council II documents. Through the use of social issues, the Roman Catholic Church seeks to draw true Evangelical Bible-believers into itself so that there can be no opposition by them on the fundamental issues of the authority of the Bible alone and the Gospel." ---- A warning to professing Christians
The comforting statement was the small family fundamentalist were likely to survive, not a surprise, as long as you understand this is Not your home. The progressives have always sold hell on earth as an ice cream sundae thatâ€™s free for everyone to enjoy.
"Social Justice" is a typically deceptive Marxist/Catholic euphemism for robbing the rich to "help" the poor. They get away with it because ever since the poor have been enfranchised, they have more votes, and have been taught not to be ashamed of taking Other People's Money. Theft is integral to Leftist ideology; in the Soviet Union, thieves were treated less harshly than political prisoners, and were allowed to harass the latter, because these reprobate bullies were deemed "socially friendly."
Behind this mindset, I suspect, Progressives resent God giving much to some folks, and little to others. No wonder Universalism and ecumenism are typical of Progressive "churches." It's not "fair" that the Biblical God saves only some people and not all, so they invent a new god more to their taste. Biblical Christianity is odious to them because it teaches contentment instead of resentment.

Pope Francis Elected â€“ Mystery of Iniquity Continues For at least seventy years, Catholic social doctrine has been mainstreamed into the political arena. Witness the buzzwords of today, coined not by Muslims, Hindus, or Buddhists, but by the Roman Catholic Church: phrases such as â€średistribution of wealth,â€ť â€śsocial justice,â€ť â€śeconomic justice,â€ť â€śdignity of the human person,â€ť â€śthe common good,â€ť â€śfairness,â€ť and the â€śright to life, food, clothing, shelter, rest, medical care, education, and employment.â€ť Catholic social doctrine is pushed worldwide by individual Catholics and Catholic groups, as the latest addenda to what the Papacy says are included in evangelization. The Papacy says this is the particular duty of the Catholic laity. Thus, the â€śmystery of iniquity,â€ť made manifest in the institution of the Roman Catholic Church and its Office of the Papacy, has for the last century been moving effectively into the civil governmental sphere, everywhere pressing its own unbiblical ideas into the public forum.
