Why I Left the Right: How Studying Religion Made Me a Liberal
Susie Meister

I was actually the opposite. I used to be a liberal Christian, until I realized a lot of the views they had were against God. To say Jesus was more of a communist is an insult to him. Jesus did not believe in stealing from the wealthy to give to the poor. He believed in voluntarily giving and helping others. “If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat” (2 Thessalonians 3:10. If you read the Bible, it specifically says that being lazy is a sin. Jesus did not say that the government should forcibly take money from people to give to others. As a Christian you should want to give to the needy regardless. You also have to remember that being a Christian you have to follow certain rules. God did not believe in a democracy. He HAS commandments we must obey. It is ludicrous to pick which political party he’d be a part of. Jesus is Jesus. He’s not a communist, socialist, fascist, etc. Of course that doesn’t mean we as Christians shouldn’t get into politics, but we need to vote for someone who’s going to follow God’s word as much as possible. Since God does not believe in a liberalism/democracy society, it would be quite stupid to support liberal lifestyle. Jesus was not some all-accepting hippy that liberals like to make him out to be. I wish people would actually pay attention to what Jesus stood for instead of skewing his words and cherry picking which the bible to make him fit into our progressive society. It’s so much more than that.

At the end of the day, we all just need to follow Jesus and stop conforming to the world. Stop painting Jesus as this liberal communist who only taught love. If you actually read what Jesus says, you’ll see that he was far from a liberal or Democrat. Please people, we need to beware of false prophets and wolves who manipulate Jesus' teachings.

Sorry this is so long, but people need to know the truth instead of trying to shape Jesus into something he’s not.
