Check it out!

Thanks for sharing this, Jenny.As a Canadian who has experienced, oddly enough, just as much culture shock in the United States as I have in Mozambique, I appreciate this video.I’m curious to know what you think about it. My general impression of the United States is that it’s not very popular to believe that Jesus would have been anything but a card-carrying Republican.This video should remind us that there are a multitude of viewpoints, and that Jesus is more complex than a unidimensional understanding of politics. I suspect he would have resisted being pegged as Republican or Democrat, right or left, but would have thought about and reacted to each issue individually.Maybe he would have run as an independent. And hopefully he would have won. He’s got my vote, anyway.Steve.
For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.- Paul
I agree with you, Steve. When I lived in Mozambique, I was quite indoctrinated… everyone told me that voting republican was the “Christian thing to do”… mainly because of the abortion issue. When I returned to the USA and began evaluating the underlying philosophies of the two parties, I became disillusioned. How would Christ vote? On what ticket would He run? Would He be elected?Like you suggested, I’m taking the issues one by one… Hoping to be like Christ. 🙂
