Political clarification: Jesus Christ isn’t a liberal. He’s God.

Some on the Professional Left have said suggested that Jesus was really a Socialist or even a libertine.

Obviously, anyone who has even taken a cursory look at the life and teachings of Jesus would know that this is not the case. However, let’s briefly go over the facts.

Liberals will point to Jesus exerting a certain sinner to sell all his riches and give it to the poor. Does this mean everyone is to give their riches away? Yes, it does if your possessions dictate your life. However, for most of us our possessions don’t dictate our lives. If Jesus truly believed that we should all give away all of our possessions than he would have told Zaccheus, who gave half of his possessions away (the way some do with the current tax structure,) to give away the other half. Jesus did not do this.

On the contrary, Jesus in the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30) took what little talents the third man had and gave them to the man who had the most; all the while throwing the man who didn’t use his talents into the darkness, which many believe was a metaphor for hell.

Why disbelievers can’t understand the Bible

To those who earnestly asked the way to heaven, Jesus candidly said, “I am the Way.” But to the rich young man who lied both to himself and to God, the Good Teacher responded craftily to the same question, “Keep the commandments.”

The Bible is simply not open to scrutiny by the insincere. The Scribes, the Pharisees and the Sadducees had read God’s word diligently every day of their lives.

But when the Word-Made-Flesh, the Fulfillment of every prophecy, the long-expected Messiah stood right in front of them, they didn’t recognize Him. Jesus told them, “You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that bear witness of Me.” (John 5:39 NASB) They had scrutinized the sacred scrolls until their eyes bled, but missed the whole Point.
