Second Meeting

Join us for our second installment of our discussion on the Politics of Jesus, centered around Shane Claiborne's book, Jesus for President: Politics for Ordinary Radicals. To recap, last time we kicked off the series by sharing our initial reactions to the theme. Here is a small sample of what CBSF members were thinking:

  1. Would Jesus even be a capitalist? It seems like Jesus is very clear in Matthew 19:24 when he says, "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." Does that make him a commie then? 

  2. If we recall, Jesus and politics were mixed from the beginning. The jewish people were expecting the messiah to arrive in the form of a fantastic military or political leader that would lead them out from under Roman rule. Jesus was not that and perhaps it's still weird to think of him in the political realm.

  3. Jesus would be the most overwhelmingly compassionate and ineffective leader ever. He wouldn't have time to handle any presidential duties because he'd be far too busy pardoning criminals, making peace with enemy nations, washing the feet of terrorists, and using drones to spread God's love.

  4. What about the "give to caesar what is caesar's" quote in Matthew 22:21? Does that mean he is pro-separation of church and state? Or is he just a model citizen in terms of paying taxes? 

Join us this time to dive into another great conversation. Hope to see you then!

What Do We Mean By The Politics of Jesus?

This meeting marks the beginning of our discussion on the politics of Jesus. We thought this would be a cool series to do given that it's an election year. Keep in mind, our goal for this topic is not to support or bash anyone's political views, but to take a step back and consider how Jesus would rule the world differently from us mere mortals. It should be an interesting series of talks, so show up! We'll kick off our discussion in Union Room 2424 at 6:00. (Not sure how to find it, send us an email!)
