    Again I say, he'd probably ask "Where are the poor?"
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Long thread so not sure if anybody has mentioned this yet but Jesus said he is the bread of life and he is the ressurection, Thus if Jesus where here, There would be no need for any kind of government health care. You would not get sick and you would not die

    Jesus wouldn't support the current healthcare plan because he has a brain.

    There is no doubt in my mind that if Jesus walked the earth today, he would be far more concerned about the state of our souls and our morals than the state of our healthcare system.

    Why did the Jews get the Romans to kill Jesus again? A political move was it not?

    To some degree it was motivated by politics, yes. The existing King was needlessly concerned with being replaced by Jesus, and the Sanhedrin/Pharisees were concerned with losing their religiously-based authority over the people.

    Jesus himself was not much concerned with politics, and resisted attempts to politicize his presence and message. He said, "If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight", but that was not the purpose of his incarnation.

    I would say it was political yes, but this has nothing to do with Jesus getting involved in politics. He did not and so your question is irrelevant.

    Other people tried to politicize the positions of Jesus, not Jesus.

    Actually, this raises an interesting point which could well be used to illuminate the one at hand.

    Would Jesus support anti-abortion laws? (Sub-question -- does SouthernDemocrat think a Christian is obligated to vote for them?)

    The answer would be the same -- he'd have no interest in the question. It's an Earthly law; he's interested only in God's law. Whatever the human law, he'd expect that you act accordingly to God's will, so human law doesn't matter.
