Jerry Falwell Jr. says Jesus’ teachings don’t apply to politics.  A great progressive non-profit organization, Faithful America (www.faithfulamerica.org) sends smart, conscientious e-mails.  In early January 2019 they sent this:  “In a Washington Post interview this week, Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of Liberty University, said that a poor person never gave anyone a job or gave anybody charity “in any real volume.”  He argued that Jesus’ teachings should not be applied to public policy, finding it ridiculous to think that a nation should be “loving and forgiving” or should “help the poor.” In other words, Falwell is telling Christians that America shouldn’t follow the teachings of Jesus.”  Faithful America urges people to tell the Southern Baptists to ccorrect Falwell’s error:  See this article and petition link:  https://act.faithfulamerica.org/sign/condemn-falwells-remarks/?t=1&akid=1384%2E432684%2ELdAwbN
