Is Jesus Christ politically correct?
This is a question I pondered over as I reflected on a blog post I wrote over one year ago called, “Love Your Neighbour.”
When Donald Trump was elected one year ago, I was shocked that he was elected as the President of the United States. Amidst the shock, I trusted God. I trusted Him with the future of the United States. And what that would mean. NOT from a political standpoint, which is of the world. But of Jesus Christ.
While I choose to not disclose who I voted for in the last election, I will comment on what I believe about Jesus Christ: I believe that He is not politically correct.
You may ask me why I believe this. It is because of what the Word of God states in Hebrews 4:12:
~”For the word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”~
The presidential leaders of America have a choice. They can either compromise or abide by what God’s Word says in the decisions that they make for the future of our country. I do not believe that Jesus Christ was a democrat. Neither do I believe that He was a republican. I do believe that He unites all Christian democrats and all Christian republicans together under ONE GOD, ONE SAVIOR, AND ONE LORD because of our common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the One who holds us together in unity. Adversity, strife, and division are not of God as that is what the enemy wants for America.
I will say that I believe that it is immature to mock those who chose to vote for Trump. I also believe that it is just as immature to ridicule those who voted for Clinton. Both political leaders are sinners. They are not perfect just like us. While I respect the both of them as political leaders, I will not compromise the Word of God with politics.
Politics is fleeting. It is an ideology that is constantly changing. From the traditional republicans to the progressive democrats. A human made thought that does not last eternally. It eventually dies as a new political thought is made, which will die eventually as another one is made.
My point is clear: I believe that Jesus Christ is not politically correct because He did not compromise what His Heavenly Father showed Him in His Word as He lived it out while doing ministry on earth.
His word stands. Forever. Not temporarily as other human ideologies. But forever.
~”All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of the grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of God remains forever.”~1 Peter 1:24-25, ESV
That is not to say that American political leaders do not represent Christianity in the decisions that they make. There are political leaders who I believe represent Christianity and its values. I also believe that there are leaders who have messed up in the decisions that they have made because they chose to compromise (give up) the Word of God in exchange with politics. Yes. Some American political leaders have chosen to give up the Word of God in exchange for politics.
You do not have to agree with me on this. In fact, it is a choice to compromise what the Word of God states and idolize politics. I am not a democrat. I am not a republican. I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
I am not just saved. I am a follower of Christ. forever. And will not compromise the Word of God for something that will not last and has no eternal value.
I know that God sees what is going on in this country of America. I also know that His hand is upon America. Only His Holy Spirit can have the power to win souls to Jesus Christ, including in America.
I also believe that America itself is politically correct in a sense of its people: Americans.
Americans. They are sinners, just like everybody else in the world, except they themselves do not see into the windows of their own souls with Godly discernment.
Sin. Sin is sin. It is what is separating Americans from Almighty God and into a relationship of indulgence with themselves. Self. And just as worse than that is for self to get so deep into self and so far away from the Word of God that that person chooses to compromise the Word of God in exchange for politics. That is the self of the average American today.
Americans have a choice. They can either live as saved Christians, as followers of Christ, or both. Now, I AM NOT saying that it is wrong to be saved. That is the whole point of the Christian faith. What I am saying is that to live as a Christian is to live out the faith itself, knowing that you yourself are saved and a follower of Christ as you live out what the Word of God says. And doing it daily. In a practical sense.
That is why I believe that Jesus is not politically correct. You cannot compromise the Word of God in exchange for politics of any kind. The Word of God stands. It always will. Always and forever.
Thank you for reading my post. God bless you. May the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ meet you where you are tonight. 🙂
