IS JESUS A REPUBLICAN? IS JESUS A LIBERAL?

That's the title of an excellent post, dated August 14, 2004, on the Public Christian website.

There's plenty of commentary there on the post running right up to the present. I added my own that was still in moderation the last time I checked. Here it is for those who are interested:

This is a great post. The comments must also be found thought provoking by most who read and consider them. On the Real Liberal Christian Church website (realliberalchristianchurch.org), you will find that I've written extensively about self-styled conservative-Republican Christians and others who mistakenly believe themselves to be followers of Jesus. You will find that I refer to Jesus as a small-c communist — not to be confused with the one-party dictatorship under Marxism-Leninism. The difference lies in Jesus's anti-coercion and spirituality. Marx and Lenin were, of course, highly coercive (violent, even deadly). In addition, they were what is termed materialists — disbelievers in spirit in the sense in which Jesus means the term "spirit."

You will find that I've explained and documented the textual foundation for this position. Even the very name of our Church is intentionally designed to cause one to remember the proper meaning of the words. You will see that our header contains the verse, "The vile person shall be no more called liberal, nor the churl said to be bountiful." — Isaiah 32:5. That verse is interpreted on the site. Its prophetic importance is also explained.

Please come visit and feel free to leave your comments. This subject matter, covered here and on the Real Liberal Christian Church site, is of critical importance and needs to become common knowledge. It needs to come to be on the minds and in the hearts of every soul on Earth. Then God will amaze the whole of humanity.

God bless everyone.
