Claiming Jesus for Our Agenda

A caution about mixing our politics with our religion, from Allan Bevere at Jesus Creed.

Atheist Richard Dawkins once stated that as intelligent as Jesus was, if he were here today, knowing what we human beings now know in the 21st century, Jesus would be an atheist. … Since Dawkins is an atheist, he can be excused; but what is the excuse for those who claim to follow Jesus, those believers that insist Jesus follow them in support of their pet projects and sacred cow issues?

Worth keeping in mind, especially during a presidential election cycle.

The longest hours of my life have been listening to religious leaders argue for their political agenda by describing it as the church’s social witness.
