Jesus doesn’t ‘do’ politics

 

On our Facebook page last week various people said, in response to one of our posts:

Really? This is supposed to be ‘Anglican’ Memes and Humour, not ‘Politically-slanted’ Memes and Humour. This really annoys me.

 

Anglican Memes….please stick to religious themes…not left-wing political talking points…

 

Stay out of politics please, low blow and judgmental. There is the other Bible passage that says if a man doesn’t work he doesn’t eat ..Disappointed in you .One can twist scripture to ones views .

So here is our reply:

  1. Brilliant! Anyone who thinks Jesus doesn’t do politics clearly hasn’t read the Gospels! The Lord’s Prayer itself is a massive political statement and the cartoons you show above just show how political he was!

  2. Of course Jesus did politics! He doesn’t seem to be that concerned about Rome but the Jewish theocracy was still in place under Roman rule, as local rulers were usually in all their subject states. And his attitude to that theocracy was pretty similar to stuff I see addressed to politicians on facebook. ‘Ye brood of vipers’ for instance.

  3. Jesus was SO polite, I guess he never talked about religion or money either…

    I love these – keep them coming!

  4. Read J P Yoder’s classic book – read way back but title something like “The Politics of Jesus” It blew any doubts I had that Jesus “did” politics! He had more to say about economics and politics than about many other things.
