Jesus, Anarchy, and the Golden Rule

Jesus, Anarchy, and the Golden Rule


01-24-2012  •  www.striketheroot.com 

Column by Robert Taylor.

"So in everything, do unto others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." ~ Matthew 7:12

"Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets." ~ Matthew 37:40

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God." ~ Matthew 5:9

 
It is truly amazing what politics and the State have done to Christianity--and nowhere is this more evident than the recent GOP "debate" in South Carolina. While Newt received raucous applause and standing ovations as he reveled in thirst for Muslim blood, Ron Paul was booed and jeered for arguing in favor of Christ's admonition and a Golden Rule foreign policy.
 
This is what the evil Republicans have done to the good and decent instincts of most Christians. They have accused "the Left" of wanting to destroy their religion, their country, and their way of life while advocating a Mussoliniesque program of torture, endless war, empire--and wallowing in it.
 
While wrapping their socialism, statism, and megalomania is "family values," they rail against abortion while turning a blind eye to the mass murder of innocents committed by the US government overseas in order to get the Evangelical vote. Paul is the only candidate up there--probably the only national politician--who is consistently pro-life: anti-abortion, anti-war, and anti-capital punishment. Like John the Baptist screaming in the wilderness, Paul is more prophet than politician, and a statesman--and more importantly, he represents a philosophy--that any Christian who truly values the words and deeds of Christ should support.
 
When Romney or Santorum or Newt or any other of these fascists takes over the White House and government spending skyrockets and nothing that Christ valued is even remotely closer to a reality, I will have no pity for those who cheered on the bloodshed. You reap what you sow.
 
I only hope that this will make Christians realize that ethics and morality are completely and utterly destroyed by the State, politics, elections, and the right of some individuals to defy natural law and claim for themselves the right to initiate aggression against the innocent with no punishment, accountability, or apology. And although nearly all political movements try to claim Jesus as a champion of their philosophy, like nearly all great historic and prophetic figures in history, Jesus was essentially an anarchist.

Well, there is a lot to say here, so, 3 points.

1. Jesus was not an anarchist. He is THE KING. His kingdom may not be of this world, but He is still The King. Why? It is in His Revelation words: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End." Notice that there is no middle. When a person dies, he forgets everything that has happened here. He forgets this whole life. Isaiah says that once the realm of the hereafter comes into being, none of this will ever be remembered or brought to mind. Even God Himself will put it all behind Him. Jesus is the Beginning and the End. No middle exists except for a short moment here. He died and arose again, and lives forever and ever... the Alpha and the Omega.

2. There are two places in the Old Testament where God calls King David a man after His own heart. Yet, David was one of the bloodiest kings that ever lived. God even told him that he could not build the temple at Jerusalem because he was so bloody. The point? God does not change. Christians of today are supposed to fight if necessary, to maintain the Kingdom that is within... to spread salvation to the ends of the earth.

3. Listen to Bible CDs over and over. Listen to the Bible on CD. Why? Because it is different when you hear it than if you read it only. Listen to the N.T. 3 or 4 times for every listening of the O.T.. Listen to it over and over again, no matter how boring it might seem, because this is the clearest way that the Holy Spirit talks to you. Don't neglect reading it. But DO listen to it, 30 minutes to 60 minutes, every day, for the rest of your life. You will hear from God many wonderful things that you miss when you listen to the church speak, or even when you only read the Bible.
