I was puruzing through the book review section of an online forum that I'm a member of and came across a book that sounds intriquing - "The politics of Jesus : rediscovering the true revolutionary nature of the teachings of Jesus and how they have been corrupted" by Obery M. Hendricks. My library has the book, so I'm adding it to my list of books to read. For a summary check here.
Of course this book is written by a man who has his set of beliefs and life experiences that may differ from the readers. We each have to take God's Word and determine for ourselves how HE wants us to live this life. We only get one chance and as Randy Alcorn says in one of his books, Safely Home “One moment after men die, they know exactly how they should have lived. But then it is too late to go back and live their lives over again. Too late for the unbeliever, in the jaws of hell. But also too late for the believer, who cannot relive his life, remake his choices, this time following his King more faithfully.”
So many people with different political stances claim to be following Jesus and doing His work. I wonder what Jesus thinks of it all?
