Jesus the Socialist…

 “What would Jesus cut?” from the federal budget.

How would you answer that question? My answer would be, “It’s a nonsense question. Your premise is faulty. Your priorities are not His priorities.” [Read more about the priorities of Jesus HERE]

  1. Michael Youssef’s response fails to mention some things we have been told as to how He will decide issues when He reigns.

    We know (Is. 9:7) that He will rule with “judgment” (righteous judgment). There won’t be any juries casting votes according to their opinion or judges decreeing personal preferences. He will rieign with “justice”, so there can’t be Marxism or Robin Hood legislation that takes from one person to give to another, and out goes the progressive tax system (Ex 30:15). He will rule against all types of lying (Zech 8:16) so away goes political spin of everyone, whether media or politician or otherwise, because He wants men to “Speak each man the truth to his neighbor; Give judgment in your gates for truth, justice, and peace;”

    All His rule will be based on principles, so there will be no compromises in congress (since a principle compromsed is not a principle at all). He’ll be a dictator (thought of today as automatically evil, yet dictator King David “walked, in integrity of heart and in uprightness…” (I Kg 9:4) and “…who kept My commandments and who followed Me with all his heart, to do only what was right in My eyes;” (I Kg 14:8).

    Jesus will “break them with a rod of iron” and “shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.” (Ps 2:9) and “He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.”

    And though He is ruling in Jerusalem, why would anyone suppose He won’t affect other nations as well, in light of “…the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it…and they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it.” (Rev 21:24,26).

    So if that describes some methods He will rule by, shouldn’t Americans at least attempt to mimic Him? (Well, of couse, but being terrible sinners, we can’t and so we studiously avoid His Word.)
