“The Good Samaritan” is a parable, a story, that was spoken by Jesus Christ meant to illustrate the Bible in summary. It is well known amongst Christians. It is an easy accessed telescope into the very heart of Christ and the heart of the whole of the Law of God. The major theme and meaning of the parable, of God’s Law, is that we are to love God and love our neighbors as ourselves.
“…and behold, a certain lawyer stood up, and tempted him, saying, Master, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? He said unto him, What is written in the law? how readest thou? And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live. But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him, And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host, and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spendest more, when I come again, I will repay thee. Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.” -Luke 10:25-37
Again, it’s very clear what is being taught here by The Lord. We are to love God with our whole being. We are to not be selfish. We are to care for one another regardless of race or sex because God loves all. He is no respecter of persons, and he does does not discriminate. In other words, for any liberals that may be reading this, God is not “racist”. This is a solid truth. It is a fact and it is beautiful.
This is the scripture used most by Christians, non-believers, and outright Christ haters to make sure that white people keep our mouths shut as we are flooded with supposed “refugees” and those “fleeing hardship”. If you dare have concerns about your family’s safety or the safety of your countrymen, you are, by default(in the depraved mind), a racist.
It’s peculiar; the same people that swear that God doesn’t exist, the ones that go against every other moral standard in his Word, are so quick to use scripture when they think they can get what they want out of it. It is used politically the majority of the time.(I might would venture to say that a good percentage do not care about the humans they claim to want to help at all. They hold their “refugees welcome” signs but only as a thumb in a political opponent’s eye. The “refugee” is merely canon fodder for their political and social aspirations. Even those that do seem to care even a little, generally speaking, only care because it’s been instilled in them that this is a stance for the morally superior. It’s not done out of sincerity. which still hearkens to politicization and social mind manipulation. They love having the supposed moral high ground. From that vantage point it is much easier to dictate other “moral”(political) standards, which again revealing the hypocrisy of leftists, democrats, progressives, etc…, always tend to go against every single other ordinance of God.
I’d like to make a few small points about this parable that maybe some have missed. But first let me say, I’m not here to twist scripture. It’s plain. It’s simple. It’s true. I’m simply wanting to point at some areas that generally get passed by, as per usual when dealing with scripture to prove or disprove a point.
Firstly, the summary of the parable is, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.”
Notice that those who all of a sudden become biblical scholars when using this scripture to spiritually and emotionally strong-arm Christians into allowing a flood of foreigners into America and Europe(which are currently and have been historically white founded and white built countries) tend to leave out the first and most important part of this scripture? Namely, to love God with every ounce of your being.
Perhaps unbeknownst to the non-believer, you don’t get the privilege of picking and choosing scripture out of context as though you are walking through a berry patch looking for “the good ones”. Especially when the berry you choose is one of those berries that almost looks like two or three berries combined into one. You simply cannot do the the second part, loving thy neighbor as thyself, if you don’t do the former, FIRST.
Secondly: In the phrase, ” love thy neighbor as thyself”, it seems to escape some folks that the base of the sentence, “AS THYSELF”, is what the rest of the phrase relies on if to be completed. You must first love yourself. It’s completely healthy and natural. This is why we cringe at suicide. The assumption you leave behind after taking your life is that you not only obviously did not love others, but you very obviously did not love yourself. And So we instinctively know it’s inherently wrong to not love yourself. You were made in the image of God, so to hate yourself is to hate His image, and for Christians, it is to hate the very Spirit of Christ as your body is the temple for his Spirit
So, by extension, loving thyself also means means loving thy family, thy kindred, thy very people from whom you came forth.
With that, it is to say; if you are flooding the nation with those that openly hate you, your nation, your people, your history, your heritage, celebrate your demise, and aspire to kill, displace, replace, breed out and erase you; then, by way of reason, you simply are not following through with “love thyself”.
If you do not love yourself, then you can not love others. If you do not love God, then you can’t love yourself; at least not in any proper and righteous way; the way God would intend.
Lastly, the parable itself… What did the Samaritan do that he was considered, “good” and in turn showed that he in fact loved his neighbor? Did he invite the beaten man to come stay in his house? Did he invite the man’s family or tribe to come set up camp in Samaria? Did he go find the man’s attackers and beat the snot out of them? No. Then, what exactly did he do. He, as an individual, looked upon the man with compassion. He doctored his wounds. He took him to an inn, a hotel, not his own house where his probable daughters were sleeping. Why not? He was good, right? Yes, he definitely was. He was a good neighbor because he addressed a stranger’s needs unselfishly while at the same time not putting himself, his family, or his neighborhood in harms way. He did not know the man. He applied wisdom. He wanted to help a man in need, so he did. He cared for, tended to him, then paid out of pocket expenses to see that the man had a chance to make it to tomorrow while at the same time giving himself and his family the very same chance. Why? Because he loved himself(and again by extension, his family, his children and their hope for a future).
He loved God; and because he loved God, he loved himself enough not to commit suicide by letting an unknown man into his camp. In turn, he loved his neighbor in the same capacity, by making sure he stayed alive as well. His wounds were tended to, his clothes were made sure to be in tact, and he put bread in the stranger’s stomach. To me, I not only see this parable as being about a good Samaritan, but a wise Samaritan as well.
