CEM: God is Not a Republican


At the CEM site, Lenny Cachio wrote the following:

God Is Not a Republican

And He’s not a Democrat either. From what I know of the Man, he has better things to do than to align himself with various factions vying for political power…

But then I ask myself, if Jesus were a citizen of the United States today would he join the Republican Party? How about the Democrats, or the Libertarians, or Constitutionalists? I think not…

Jesus refused membership with any faction because his purpose transcends politics. His purpose is to establish a better kingdom that is not of this world’s order (Greek: cosmos, John 18:36).

With all the political drama related to “health” care in the USA the past couple of days, it may be a good time to remind people that Jesus was not a partisan figure the way we now have them.  His message transcended worldly politics and was not about compromises with the world.

The Gospel of the Kingdom of God was the Emphasis of Jesus and the Early Church Did you know that? Do you even know what the gospel of the kingdom is all about? True religion should be based upon the true gospel.
Are You Saved? Do You Love Jesus? What is a True Christian? What is the Gospel? Evangelist Richard Ames answers those important questions.
Should a Christian Vote? This article gives some of the Biblical rationale on this subject. Would Jesus vote for president? Is voting in the Bible? This is a subject Christians need to understand.
Polycarp, Herbert W. Armstrong, and Roderick C. Meredith on Church Government What form of governance did the early church have? Was it hierarchical? Which form of governance would one expect to have in the Philadelphia remnant? The people decide and/or committee forms, odd dictatorships, or the same type that the Philadelphia era itself had?
