Is conservatism founded in Old Testament thought and liberalism in New Testament?


One line of thought says the Old Testament is morality focused while the New Testament is compassion. A study conducted stated from their findings, "Liberal Christians tend to believe that Jesus is more conservative than they are on moral issues, while conservative Christians believe he is more liberal." Do those contribute to political divide since Christians are both Republicans and Democrats? Just wondering . . .

    I agree with most of what you said. But your liberal conclusion doesn't make sense to me. Please don't feel sorry, if you mean me. I love God and his son. I think of this scripture. The truth will set you free. There is nothing feel sorry for.
