Have you ever wondered if Jesus lived in the 21st century, where would He land on the political spectrum? Would He identify as a Republican or a Democrat or something else?
What issues would He be concerned about? Who would He vote for? What actions or character flaws would disqualify a candidate from earning His vote?
As Christians, our political beliefs should have as their end goal, Christ-likeness, not comfort or fairness or job creation or justice or economic stability or any other end goal that the world pursues.
So the question is, how would Jesus vote? And I think there is a verse in the Bible that perfectly sums up Jesus’ mission on earth and also has strong implications for our lives and even our political convictions today.
I talk about that in my guest post at LightWorkers.com.
