WWJV" whom would Jesus vote for?

Written by Rev. James L. Snyder

Continued from page 1

Forgotten are all those hanging chads and such, associated withrepparttar election of 2000. My mind is in a new direction; whom would Jesus vote for in November?

Religion has played an important role inrepparttar 118144 politicking of late. Every politician, these days, speaks ofrepparttar 118145 importance of personal faith in an appeal to religious groups. If you ask me, I've never seen a politician who could not do with a good dose of religion.

Even in Pennsylvania, politicians are chasingrepparttar 118146 Amish vote. Now, I ask you, what inrepparttar 118147 world does a politician ofrepparttar 118148 21st century have to offerrepparttar 118149 Amish living inrepparttar 118150 18th century?

The Amish have their own schools. They take care of each other and do not need a government health plan. And there is no unemployment among these sturdy people ofrepparttar 118151 earth. They go out of their way to keeprepparttar 118152 government out of their lives.

Therefore, what does a politician have to offer these quaint people free axle grease for their buggy wheels?

Probably,repparttar 118153 most important point in this discussion is what political candidate has anything they can offer Jesus? What promise could they ever make that would in any way entice Him to cast a glance their way, let alone a vote.

A problemrepparttar 118154 politician faces is simply: Jesus demands complete and absolute honesty in every person allrepparttar 118155 time. For a candidate to make some promise merely to entice a voter would be repulsive to Jesus.

Jesus can see through every promise and every person.

Every candidate for public office knows in his or her heart they cannot deliver on most of their promises. This inability to deliver does not in any regard stoprepparttar 118156 flow of smooth-as-butter promises.

Fromrepparttar 118157 New Testament, Jesus established some priorities:

* Honesty torepparttar 118158 point of personal harm.

* Preferringrepparttar 118159 other to himself.

* Helpingrepparttar 118160 poor and unfortunate.

Fortunately, Jesus does not vote. Rather, he invites people to come to Him for rest.

An Old Testament scripture illustrates this truth. "Come now, and let us reason together, saithrepparttar 118161 Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18 KJV.)

What politician offers forgiveness of sins? Jesus said, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28 KJV.)

St. Augustine hit it right when he said, "Thou, O Lord, has created us for Thyself and we are restless until we rest fully in Thee."
