    That is making an assumption that miracles happen. I'm in the skeptical column personally.

    I was being semi-facetious. Nevertheless, what we know about Jesus we know primarily through Scripture. The historical record on who Jesus was, what his actions and actual beliefs were are murky at best.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I think it is quite silly to do things such as speculate as to what political lean dead people would be or what present-day groups/movements they would support. The fact of the matter is that they are dead and as such, it doesn't matter.

    IMO, Jesus did not oppose wealth....I think he was neutral.
    He was angered by those who were doing "banking" in a place of worship....and he was totally correct...

    Like many others, I have read enough of the Bible - it easy, His words are in red...to determine that He would be liberal, even socialist...Conservatives and their ilk are the exact opposite, which is fine for them, but not the masses..
    And this is known, I should not have to explain..Obviously, with "BS" in place, its obvious that your mind and your opinion are set in concrete...
    At one time I was a conservative, but no concrete was involved.

    And yet, if it really didn't matter, would you be here posting about it?

    Deep thoughts...

    You think that man cannot learn from the dead ? If this were true, we would still be living in trees and swinging from vines..
    And Jesus is not "dead" as such..

    Are you saying that you equate uncharitable people with fiscal conservatives? Prove that Jesus espoused liberal or socialist ideas. If you decline to, it will be your mind that's set in concrete, not mine. I'm perfectly willing to challenge my views; are you?

    Why is it so difficult for some among the Left to understand this? Fiscal liberals and conservatives are both largely charitable people. We disagree only on means, not ends.
