For the skeptical, spiritually tired and turned off.
For the hurt, disillusioned and fed up.
For those who can’t seem to embrace Jesus past their negative experiences or views of “Christians” or “church.”
Perhaps, you should reconsider Jesus, and here are seven reasons why:
1. Jesus isn’t a political party.
Despite what some have done in evangelical Christian circles to make Jesus a member of their political party, Jesus doesn’t have a political affiliation. He is separate, above, and beyond politics. Yes, Christians have political views and get involved politically. No fault there. But, any moral standards derived from Jesus are just that, from Jesus. Jesus has great relevance to politics, but exists outside of politics. As political parties claim to be more “Christian” in values and standards than others, it is important to let Jesus stand by Himself, outside of any one political affiliation. Loving and embracing Jesus doesn’t necessarily mean loving and embracing a certain political party. One does not require the other.
