Bill O’Rielly. Bernard Goldberg: ET AL

by James Jett

For years, more years than I care to mention, I have heard people, Christians and non Christians, but mostly non christians, takeing liberty, when talking about The Lord Jesus Christ. Please tell me what in the saying or life of Jesus, cause you to  say, he would be a Liberal Democratic, if he was on earth today? Answer, after you read this post.

This post is not for baby Christians, meaning “those on the milk of the word” I am writing to the mature Christians,  “those on the meat of the word” Thus, no reference, chapter nor verse. If you can not read this and know if it is in the Bible, or it is not stated in the Bible, stop reading.

I am not a teacher or a preacher, and do not intend to make anyone become concern because of what i am posting in this Blob.

Please consider the following: about the life of Jesus while he taught people on this earth.

Jesus fed five thousand and never ask the government for a single dime. (a democrat?)

“Let him without fault cast the first stone”

“If a man don’t work, he should not eat”

Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world” His Disciples  and Followers hoped he would set up a Kingdom, maybe like the Kingdom ruled by King David in the Old Testament.

“Jesus said “we should edify each other , and admonish one another”

Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s and unto God that which is Gods'”

Jesus paid the taxes without complaining, yet, he never tried to build a large government dedicated to providing for the poor. In fact, he said we the people should feed the poor.

Every body that Jesus healed, every body that Jesus fed, he healed and fed them without one cent from the government.  Unless Joanna, the wife of Chuza, Herod’s Steward, Susanna, and many other women, who ministered to Jesus and his followers, received money from her husband, Jesus received no money from the government. I recall, the Bible said Joanna and the other women gave from their own means (or words of that equivalence).

If Jesus were on earth today,  I can assure, the democrats would reject him because he would not be for the social programs they passed.  Republicans would reject him because he is against greed and unjust governments.

Please know this, when Jesus return: every knee will bow and every tongue confess that he is Lord!

I will end by making it clear that I am not protesting, nor am I complaining or asking you to stop. Just want you to know this ,  when talking about Jesus, back-it-up with facts in the Bible.

Personally, I never question Jesus, but I ask him a lot of questions. This example: John the Baptist, a forerunner of Jesus, was in prison for a statement he made about sins. Herodias, Herod’s wife, well (so-called wife) because he took her from his brother.  It seem this is what John the Baptist called a sin and she, Herod’s wife asked for his head on a platter, after Herod said he would give anything up to half of his kingdom if her daughter, Salome  would dance for his guesses.  She danced and asked her mother what she should ask for and her mother said “the head of John the Baptist. Herod had him beheaded and Salome gave it to her mother.

With his death pending, John the Baptist send some of his followers to Jesus and told them to ask him if he was the one who is to come or should we expect someone else? Jesus replied. “Go back and report to John what you hear and see : The blind receive sight, the lame walk,  those who have leprosy  cured, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is preached to the poor. Blessed is the man who does not fall away because on account of me.”

Jesus said: “I tell you the truth: among them that are born of  women there has not arisen a greater than John the Baptist” This same Jesus said: “yet he who is least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than He.”

When I, James Jett, is down and out and my world come down on my shoulders, I ask Jesus, am I one of those greater than John the Baptist?
