There are a lot of Christians out there who have sided and joined the Democrat party. There are many reasons for that membership but a lot of times it is misunderstanding the Democrats and the Bible that leads to such movements.
While the Republican party is not filled with saints either and do not always follow the Bible as it should, the Democrats seem to be the worst of the two. Which is why they are being compared to Jesus today.
#1. Reading the Bible- while Pelosi claims she reads the Bible and prays the question is does she and other Democrats actually obey it? Unfortunately they do not seem to as they like to follow the Bible like they follow federal laws- they pick and choose which commandments they will follow.
Their hypocrisy is second only to the Pharisees and Sadducees or a virtual tie. Not sure yet.
#2. Love thy neighbor- this is an often quoted verse and instead of finding out what that verse actually means, Democrats support evil evil and sinful options elevating them to status and positions they should not hold.
people are forced to accept those promotions whether they agree with it or not.
#3. Calling evil good- The Democrats are great at calling sinful, evil behavior good and good behavior evil. Those that abide by the law are seen as evil as their actions remind the Democrats that they have made wrong choices.
#4. Pandering to people- the Democrats are also good at changing laws when such changes means more power to them and more votes. The congressional law banning religious head gear was instantly over turned by Democrats when a Muslim was elected to office.
Laws have no real meaning or importance to Democrats.
#5. Education- the Democrats want people to be dumbed down, not educated and easily scared and manipulated. They also want school children to learn that evil is good, normal and acceptable.
#6. Violate rights- the Democrats have been very busy in this area as they have violated the rights of the majority in favor of sexual preferences, minority status, and protection from criminal behavior. The will of the people does not matter to the Democrats except when that will agrees with their agenda.
#7. Justice and fairness- the Democrats seem to like to punish people for offenses that were not offenses when those in question were still alive. Removing statues, changing names of airports, educational facilities, or other areas of life is the norm and done to please a group of people that can’t be pleased.
#8. They employ methods they claim to despise- that is the typical move by Democrats. They claim that certain actions are wrong yet the first move they make to stop people from disagreeing with them are those exact same methods.
They cry for justice and fairness yet cannot give it to those they oppose and say are guilty of such actions.
#9. Forced acceptance- Democrats are not above changing laws to make sure that those who disagree with them comply with their demands. That is not democratic nor right.
#1. Reading the Bible- Jesus read it and followed it. He actually prayed and his prayers and times of prayer are recorded for all to see. Jesus also obeyed the Bible, the OT, submitting to his parents and other actions.
Jesus was not a hypocrite
#2. Love thy neighbor- Jesus taught what that phrase actually meant. He set the example by not coveting his neighbor’s things or spouse; teaching the truth; helping others in need; not rioting or trying to overthrow the government
Jesus was not a rebel but leading people to the right way to live. Jesus also did not tell people to sin against their neighbors, put them at risk of harm or violence and did not advocate for any illegal activity. he [protected his neighbors from illegal acts.
#3. Calling evil good- Jesus did not do that. In fact he called out evildoers no matter where they were found and told them to repent of their sinful ways. He supported obedience to the ruling government and their laws.
#4. Pandering to people- Jesus told the truth and presented his message no matter who was upset or offended by it. He didn’t change the standards of right and wrong, morality and immorality or good and evil to please minorities or people who do not accept those standards.
He also didn’t change God’s laws when people did not want to adhere to them.
#5. Education- Jesus did not overthrow God’s commands to the people of Israel when God said to teach their children his ways and statutes. Later in the NT Jesus had Paul say get knowledge. In other words, Jesus did not want people dumbed down, easily manipulated, or scared.
He wanted them to know the truth
#6. Violate rights- Jesus did not violate anyone’s right nor the one right they have from God. He did not force his views on anyone who forced them to accept his message. He let them choose.
He lived a life that was the example to follow and did not interfere with other people’s way of living. He did kick the sellers out of the Temple but he did not stop them from selling in approved locations.
He also did not fire people from their employment,or had them fired for disagreeing with him.
#7. Justice and Fairness- Jesus’ rules and teaching applied to everyone as did the punishments for violating them. No one was exempt and no one could or can overturn those rules and laws.
Jesus also did not punish people long dead for sins or other supposed crimes they could not repent from any longer. He didn’t advocate or tell anyone to remove the statues, the names of buildings etc., because a small group of people didn’t like them or what those historical people did.
He did say ‘do unto others as you would like to be treated.’
#8. Employing methods he condemned- Jesus never did that. He remained with the method that was correct and that was to let people freely decide which path they will travel.
He prayed for those doing evil, he taught them the truth like he taught those that followed him and on it goes. He never bullied, threatened, or coerced any decision from anyone.
#9. Forced acceptance- Jesus never changed any law or taught that certain laws should change in order to force people to follow his ways. He told p[eople what was right and wrong, etc., and let them decide what laws they would create and implement.
In other words Jesus gives people a lot of freedom whereas the Democrats do not.
