Democrats have been working hard to spin their version of Jesus. Here’s just one example: Many of the party’s presidential hopefuls proclaim, without irony, that anyone who thinks marriage requires a man and a woman are un-Christian “bigots.”
(Robert Knight – The Washington Times) At Easter, the question is often raised: Who is Jesus?
As C.S. Lewis wrote, the Gospels leave no gray area: Either Jesus was God Incarnate or a madman for claiming to be so. Merely being “a good teacher” doesn’t cut it.
The New Testament says that Jesus is not only the Jews’ long-awaited Messiah but the Son of God, who was sacrificed for the sins of the whole world, rose from the dead and grants eternal life to all who believe in Him. He is the second part of the Trinity comprising the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
For 2,000 years, this has been orthodox Christian doctrine. Meanwhile, Jesus’ name has been invoked on behalf of nearly every cause, including some particularly diabolical ventures.
Today’s Progressives, for example, brazenly misquote the Sermon on the Mount as if it were the first draft of “The Communist Manifesto.” They claim that Jesus would back open borders, forced redistribution of wealth, seizure of private property and, most of all, sexual anarchy.
