This is a powerful documentary that offers solutions and not mere platitudes. The harsh reality is that progressive policies are in favor of sin and do not attempt to eradicate sin. The harsh reality of the matter is that most of the homelessness is a sin issue and could be easily fixed if society cared more for the homeless than their own guilty consciousness. This documentary does a fantastic job of illuminating the wretched history of progressive politics in these cities.
It is here that biblical men need to stand for the truth and fight for the poor and the needy. This is a constant theme in both the Old and New Testaments. The triune God of the Bible advocated for the poor, the needy, orphans, and the homeless: Proverbs 19:17, 22:9, 28:27, 14:31; James 1:27; Matthew 19:21; etc… (there are over 50 scriptures in the Bible that reference taking care of the poor or needy). Meaningful Masculinity means defending those who cannot defend themselves. In many instances, this might be in a situation where the needy do not want to defend themselves, which is primarily the case in homelessness. There is nothing virtuous about standing by while large swaths of Americans kill themselves on alcohol and drug abuse. This is a sign of a decadent civilization, not a principled one.
What we have seen in large metropolitan cities like New York, San Fransico, and Detroit is a total aversion to biblical truth and Christian compassion. The book of Proverbs speaks often about the poor and needy. It states: “The righteous man knows the rights of the poor; a wicked man does not understand such knowledge” (Proverbs 29:7 ESV). Democratic-run cities have showcased this concept. Progressives do not understand the plight of the homeless and are incapable of understanding the correct manner in which to fix it. Covering up or excusing sin, as they do in these infested cities, will never fix the problem and will only guarantee to exacerbate the situation. Homelessness is not a money problem, it is a problem of the heart, a hardened heart.
