    Most of us are have read the historical accounts of Jesus. If you could put him in a political party today according to those deeds which one would it be and why?

    This should be fun. Would you call him a Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Neo-Con?

    Constitutionalist, Natural Law, maybe Green/Egalitarian

    NOTE: He might join the Democrat Party to save the most lost people!
    That's my reason for joining anyway, to help where it is needed the most!

    Are these choices based on any act, miracle, or comment from his life?

    None.

    Attempting to do so would amount to blasphemy.

    Claiming that you're going the work of Jesus via politics is for the heathens, for whose only God is Big Daddy Big Gubmint.

    I think his preaching of peace would exclude him from being conservitive.

    If you want to say he spoke to women, even accepted a correction from a woman, at a time this was frowned upon, he would be egalitarian.

    What Jesus represents in all his words and actions and incarnation as fulfilling the laws, both divine and natural, that is why I would say Natural Laws.

    He would just BE the law and inspire all people to live and enforce the laws themselves by conscience. Whatever you call that, I think it is Constitutionalist to believe the people are the government (under natural law) or the people are the church (by divine law).

    He would have to teach respect for civil authority and Constitutional check and balance in order to maintain equal order between the different interests or party biases. Thus he would fulfill equal protection under the law, equal justice for all, as his nature.

    P.S. RE: He might join the Democrat Party to save the most lost people!
    That's my reason for joining anyway, to help where it is needed the most!

    NOTE: This could be traced to Jesus answer when asked about the company he kept
    where he said the doctor is for the sick, not for the well.

    Yes, but would Jesus hang out with the WELL
    or tend to the SICK? What did he say in the Bible
    when criticized for the company he kept?
