Just for fun
If Jesus came back to earth tomorrow and did not need to produce a birth cert, like Obama lol....who would win.? After all Jesus has a 85% approval rating with Americans. Would Jesus be too much a socialist and lose the election base on soft on crime ,Abortion issues, and everyone feeling guilty about being Sodom and Gomorrah like. Could anyone challenges Jesus like Obama, Ron Paul, Mitt Rodney, or any other candidate
Please, vote now'''''''''''''''
Probably not, because Jesus would tell the truth and people just don't want to hear the truth. Why do you think they nailed him to a cross?
No. The Republicans would never support a man like him. I would also venture to guess that other Americans, such as independents and most Democrats, would not vote for him either.
My guess is as a third party candidate in the upcoming election, he'd get 10-15% of the vote.
Jesus was the godfather of socialism, he would be rejected by neo-cons in a second.
Well, our country would sure have an inside track with the Big Guy!
Who would be the Champion of false promises and exaggerated claims?
The conservatives would have a fit because Jesus was a liberal Jew.
Jesus would not make it into that ugly show business
Maybe Jesus could just sing one song titled.......
The End of the World is now
People would follow him, in a heart beat
According to the forums, Jesus was a gay alien socialist. Not very electable no matter who his PR people are.
hmm.....I'm not sure Jesus would be a political leader. He was spiritual healer! lol
considering he despised political authority, and according to writing's only upheld the Kingdom og God, God's authority over Govermenty? Then I have to ask here, why would he even be a candidate? or better than this, why would any so called all knowing God need to run for an ofrfice, in a world he alone created?
But for Fun, if you will, I'd say he would be liberal and to honest for office and thus would not get elected. I do not think we would like what he had to say.
I feel I'm not going to ever understand Christianity reasoning and logic in my lifetime, yet it is my duty to try to love my fellow man anyways.
I did a test on a thread which asked, if a Christian was capture by Muslim terrorist and the Christian had a choice to be killed that day. or convert to Muslim and escape that day with their life. The vast majority christians said they would allow themselves to be killed. Even if I was a christian I would be yelling out OH Allah LOWLLOLLLLLOLOLOL then sing Take All of me change to words to Take A- la -h why don't you take Al- la- meh then live another day,
To commit suicide is a serious bad sin too, God would forgive you if you convert back to him the next day. I wonder about another thing If Jesus said, vote for me or spend eternity in hell,
More than 80% of America are Christian and it's their core belief system. Yet Christian would rather commit suicide than to convert to a Muslim or spend eternity in hell if they did not vote for Jesus.
If I was Chriantian I would have to vote for Jesus because my lifestyle and eternal soul depends on it. Yet most christian here would not vote for Jesus, what screw up logic and reasoning. The only true source of evil to me, is the absence of reason , dose anyone Christian have one here?
I honestly do not believe that most christians would rather commit suicide, self preservation is a strong tool and besides they can always say that the spirit was willing but the body was weak.
I am amazed on how most Christians would say they would not lie, and then be killed by the Muslims.
On the other HAND
North American's greatest pass time is lying, so when it really comes down to push, then it comes to shove and then to be killed, they would be yelling Allah!!! Allah!!! along with me.
Jesus is not anti Government, he is anti sin
Or maybe your right still
Problem is, most health insurance doesn't cover acts of God.
When the US military budget is much greater than the health care, watch out for the American people getting mid-evil roman style all over again on Jesus
Don't me start on the US murder rates that Jesus would have to bring back to life on.
When people were far more uneducated then we are today that had a hard time accepting Jesus now that we are in the information age and Know Everything There is no way we're going to accept Jesus even if he sent lighting bolts hurling through the air.
Only if he had the backing of a heavily founded Super-Pac--- Colbert's comes to mind ...
Mary Magdalene ,Jesus' most celebrated disciples, and the most important woman disciple ...maybe they will have some virgin birth kids too
Well, I suppose if America can seriously consider a candidate who left his wife while she was sick with cancer and is now on his third wife... old Jesus could squeak by with MM (not me, Mary M) as his "wife."
The religious right mighthave a problem with her occupation. But he'd be a shoe -in in Nevada.
Don't you think?
obviously not...Jesus's life style suits vietnam more than usa's
I'm afraid they would see him as some bearded, long haired hippy that just came off of a an Occupy Wall Street movement.
He wouldn't stand a chance.
First he would have to join the Christian church and most would think him a
charlatan and wouldn't support him.
I doubt Jesus would be elected. I have a friend who always, "People don't like to be enlightened."
Well now, what would his stance be on the issues?
He would likely get a big cut of the vote if he was for legalising marijuana...
Sure he could feed the hungry, heal the sick and what not, but what about taxes? Will he lower taxes without cutting spending? And what about corporate personhood? How easy will it be for corporations to commit crimes without being held accountable? Gotta think of the issues people!
As far as it goes, he wouldn't stand a chance and would likely be crucified by the religious element in America before it got close to the election. There is probably a reason he hasn't returned yet
Sounds like Jesus would be crucified, Kennedy style
This thread really blows my mine. 85% American say they try to live their life and core beliefs by Jesus
Then, when election comes around, they would ditch what Jesus has to say and not fellow him anymore. What would Jesus have to do to convince you. How about claim the end of the earth is happening Righteously now!!!, Still many people would say we heard the those exaggerated truths and promises about 400 times before.
I bet if Jesus poured down molten lava that surrounded everyone,with flying red dragons throwing firey flames upon everything, like something worst than Iraq. Then People would jump on his band wagon, because the other politician will be trying to scare you too, yet couldn’t top that
No, I don't think the real Jesus could get elected if He came back. Most of us wouldn't recognize Him, since we tend to create God in our own image: He hates all the same people we hate.
I doubt he would get elected. He tended to not do what the majority of people (religious or political) either expected or wanted him to do. I guess in today's terms, he wouldn't be PC enough.
The way he acts, you'd think Obama was the 2nd coming of Christ.
Too liberal, too many government handouts to the poor and sick.

Are Christians only purpose here on Earth to convert others to their religion?I was conversing on another's Questions and on of the responses was that the bible and christian's only purpose was to convert. I do not see where that says that in the Bible. Is this true?

I am writing a series of Hubs under the linked theme of "Socialism 101".It seems to me that Jesus was not a socialist, because His aim was to straighten out backsliding within the Jewish community.He carefully sidestepped attempts to inveigle him into confronting the Roman occupation. It...

Should Ministers Be involved with politics?How does God feel about Ministers getting into politics and activism. Was Jesus a political activist?

With this years batch of Republican Campaign attack ads one thing has become apparent to me. If Jesus came back and ran for the office of President of the United States, not one Right Wing Christian Conservative would vote for him. Everything I have ever heard about Jesus points to the fact that he...

As a Christian, is there a difference between a testimony of Christ and conversion?To me a testimony of Jesus Christ is a belief that Christ is the son of God, but conversion or being converted means that you have not only been baptized by one having the authority to baptize, but that you have...

Should Afro-Americans call themselves Christians because they follow Christ?Or should they call themselves another name as Christ-followers? Especially do to history and the people that first started calling themselves Christians, and what they stood for, (if you know what I mean).
