"What Would Jesus Cut?" on LewRockwell.com
My latest op-ed, "What Would Jesus Cut?" has just been published on LewRockwell.com. It examines the issues raised by the Sojourners' What Would Jesus Cut? campaign, attempting to foster what Jim Wallis call's a "moral budget." I come to very different conclusions than Wallis. God does not call us merely to pursue ends He deems worthy, but also to use morally lawful means. The bottom line is that God does not allow us to be charitable with other people's money.
