Well, I agree with most of your points for a “Christian” Party. The exception is gender transition and gay marriage. I think Christians should be more compassionate and less condemning. It really isn’t love when your tell someone you hate what is, to them, an integral part of their identity.

However, as for Jesus Himself? He didn’t have any interest in governing. If he had, he could have. Satan offered it to him on the mountain top. (And the whole all-powerful thing, if course.)

Everything he said about government was to obey it, and spend your time loving and helping individuals. He told us to help the poor, not lobby Cesear to tax the rich and give it to the poor. He told us to raise our children in righteousness, not expect public schools to do it.

Jesus wouldn’t be impressed by democracy. He’s coming back as King of Kings, after all.

He would be all about individual freedom. He stands at the door and knocks. Nothing he ever said encourages us to coerce people into the kingdom. This, in my opinion, has been the greatest sin of the organized Church throughout history.

I’m typing this on a mobile device, so I’ll stop there, but I did appreciate your post.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
