    Illegal immigration is murder
    education is pizza
    contraception is subsidized prostitution

    How did civil rights happen?
    Suffrage?

    No... I'm reiterating common arguments I hear, new guy.

    You can dodge civil rights and suffrage if you want.

    Actually he doesn't need to dodge it. Comparing education to equal access to rights is a failure on your part.

    Yep ... imho the character portrayed as Jesus was the ultimate liberal ... He was open and loving. Environmental stewardship would be important and he would stand against accumulating masses of wealth at cost to others lives or health without social balance as greedy .

    He would stand against personal judging of others or following strict traditional views that left some people excluded.

    Yet ... keep in mind he would disapprove of anyone playing anyone ... from corporate welfare to grifters misusing systems in place to serve others in need as wrongfully using the life of others.

    I doubt he would be a member of a political party ... yet as far as belief systems Jesus was a liberal.





    That is just a few of my thoughts on a drive by post.

    Jesus was a totalitarian fascist. He demands a one party totalitarian State with absolute and unyielding authority over every aspect of its citizens lives, and intends to establish such a state through force of arms.

    11And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

    *12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

    *13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

    *14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

    *15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

    *16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. - Rev 19:11-16
    Does that sound like the 'ultimate liberal' to you?

    Anyone who can magically create fish and wine would probably have a **** understanding of economic policies. Ergo, he must have been a (insert name of political party you don't want to be affiliated with here).

    hmmm. interesting how you repeat the point, ignoring it's earlier deconstruction.

    Fascists, for example, do not give you a choice whether or not to bow the knee. God not only grants you Choice, He grants you a freedom in it not granted to any other creation than that of the Angels themselves. The only ones who seek His will and live in it are those who CHOOSE to do so. It is not He that rejects you, it is you that reject Him, and your only punishment for doing so is that you are left free to do so. Nor (again, I point this out) is there any law in Heaven, for the simple enough reason that it is completely unneeded.

    how old are you?







    ...Incidentally, in the symbology of the New Testament, the Sword is the Word of God = more literally it is the Scripture itself. The author was likely picking up on some of Pauls' writings, where he discusses the symbology of the Armor of God. People who take Revelantions and attempt to make it strait literal rather than applying the assumptions with which it was written (both Christians and otherwise) are failing, I think, to grasp it. It is.... well, an incredibly difficult and complex document. Think Shakespeare's gift with language, but Shakespear if he'd been forced to right in other than his native tongue.
