    How is this different from God saying He wants me to choose Him of my own free will and that if I don't He will cast me into a lake of fire to burn in eternal torment?
    the lake of fire isn't literal - it's a metaphor. the threat isn't much of a threat: "Either choose Me, or you won't have chosen Me". For God to rape would involve forcing you to choose Him - which He does not do. It is not His fault that so many chose poorly.

    Oh brother. Look up the tax codes given in the old testament of the bible. They definitely are NOT liberal in anyway shape or form. In fact they specifically point out that the rich and the poor should pay exactly the same flat tax.

    Considering Jesus and His twelve apostles, I don't think He'd be a humanistic secular. He wouldn't be one that thinks humans should do whatever wordly acts they want.

    I picture Jesus in a tuxedo t-shirt. It says he can be serious, but he's also here to party.

    no. again you seem to have poor grasp on key terms here. Nationalism is when you take your identity from your Nation, from your ethno-cultural background, from an earth-bound corporate personhood.
    When you take your identity from the Kingdom of God, that is nationalism. In what way is it not?

    why would there be means of production in Heaven?
    You claim that there is abundance in heaven. Whatever there is in abundance must be produced somehow.


    um... no. again, you appear to have no idea what Fascism is, nor apparently what Christ or Christianity is about.
    Nor do you. I suppose we shall just have to continue debating in ignorance.

    Jesus is definitely not a liberal. If Jesus were a liberal he would have handed out food stamps instead of loaves and fishes, and he would have handed out govt ID cards for govt run health care instead of healing the people with the power of God.

    Re: Would Jesus be a Liberal?

    I think both political groups would be upset if Jesus were a liberal.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
