Neither. I honestly believe he would be facepalming at all of us here for misconstruing and fanaticizing all of the work he's done, and how we've messed it up in his name.Would Jesus vote Democrat or Republican?
Do people who strongly believe in Jesus vote Republican or Democrat?
I've never really understood this contradiction and I think it makes absolutely no sense.
Jesus's life was shaped by the situation in which he lived. He had no right to vote, therefore it is nearly impossible for us to speculate his actual political views.Jesus never advocated Christianity as a religion or a political party. Based on reports, he was just a dude preaching the good word.
He was a liberal Jew in his time. He worked on Saturday, which was a big no no at that time. He wasn't kosher, saying that all food was dirty when it left the body.Just because they have a conservative point of view does not mean they are in line with the GOP, which is to the very extreme right.
He wouldn't have the right to vote today, either. Last I check, he wasn't a citizen. His family immigrated from Egypt. And no sources stating that he ever became a Roman citizen.Jesus's life was shaped by the situation in which he lived. He had no right to vote, therefore it is nearly impossible for us to speculate his actual political views.
The Romans put him to death to appease the Jews. Pontius Pilate lobbied for Jesus to be spared. He even when to so far as to give them a choice between a harmless rabble rouser (Jesus) and a convicted murderer (Barabbas) be granted freedom. He must have PO'd the Jews something fierce for them to prefer releasing a death row murderer.Jesus was a Zealot. He wouldn't vote. He was an anti-government rabble rouser. For this reason, the Romans (possibly tipped off by the Jews, but probably not the case) put Jesus to death.
