At some point, we are going to have to come to the place that we realize that Jesus was not a southern classic Pentecostal that religiously voted Republican. The sooner we realize this, the better.

Who thinks this – this is straw man thinking – No one thinks this

Many people have formed a Jesus in their own image. Pentecostals can be the worse about it.
Stan Wayne [10/13/2015 10:34 AM]
True – it is good to keep politics in general at arms length because it can arouse carnality in people but the alternative to Republican in this country has gotten very evil and it is hard for a Christian to survive in any other environment but republican now

Jesus didn’t go around tearing down other Christian brothers or sisters either. Being a christian doesn’t give you the right to go around slandering churches either.
Charles Page [10/13/2015 10:47 AM]
Jesus ate and drank wine with sinners, republican and democrat -at the same table.
Joseph Mcmahan [10/13/2015 11:01 AM]
That he did and he didn’t teach everybody how to slander one another or to slander the church because you have a rift with the pastor. Be careful with the grudge against the church and slandering the men of God. That’s dangerous ground
Peyton Gurley [10/13/2015 11:15 AM]
I understand what you’re saying, but you can’t take contending for the faith as tearing someone down. There’s a fine line. A lot of people, in our political correct culture, think merely quoting a Bible verse is hate speech. People think even mentioning Jesus is judgement. But I do agree with this post.
Timothy Nail [10/13/2015 6:41 PM]
I agree as any rational person would that Jesus was not from the south eastern section of the U.S. and He supersedes Pentecostalism and certainly was not a Republican but how is it that our coming to this already known conclusion sooner going to make things better?

How many of you think he ate and drank with re-publicans?
Peter A Vandever [10/13/2015 6:51 PM]
How many of us act like Jesus thinks like we think? 🙂
Link Hudson [10/13/2015 7:22 PM]
Some people seem to think conservative economic philosophy is in the Bible, as if Adam Smith were one of the twelve apostles. Or that Jesus would have supported Democracy.
I’ve even heard the idea that God somehow inspired or led the founders of the US to write the constitution, and not just from Mormons. That’s really weird to me. So many people think ‘this nation was founded on Christian principles.’ There was certainly an influence, but there were also Masonic ideas, freemasonry, and various revived philosophies related to democracy that aren’t in the Bible.

‘religiously voted Republican’ – do you mean Trump?

‘religiously voted Republican’ – do you mean Trump or would Jesus vote Hillary? Alan Jon
Alan N Carla Smith [10/23/2015 2:04 PM]
Jesus might just run on the Trinity ticket. 😉

Only reprobates vote Democrat! ?

Jon Sellers Trump vs Hillary in the finals. Hillary for the WIN!
Jon Sellers [10/25/2015 2:31 PM]
Pray to God for mercy that Hillary does not win. Hillary winning would be like Nebuchadnezzar taking Israel captive to Babylon. 😉

okay. Peter I’ll bite, can you please explain your reasoning that Jesus is made out to be a southern Pentecostal or even a Cali-Penti? Might I add do this without tearing anyone poster down. oh yea and why would Jesus vote Republican or Democrat?
Link Hudson [10/26/2015 3:24 PM]
Alan N Carla Smith I’ve been in some church services where it seems like te preacher wants to wrap the Bible and Christianity up American flag, preaching American nationaism and philosophy instead of scripture.
Even the left-leaning folks can do this with American philosophies when it comes to freedom and social justice and equality. Americans like to read their concept of ‘equality’ into scriptures where it isn’t there, both conservative and liberal.
