What Would Jesus Do?

Great article by Garry Wills. I read his book 'Nixon Agonistes: The Crisis of the Self-Made Man' for my first political science class many moons ago & have always admired him. I missed his opinion piece in Sunday's New York Times. It's worth a look.

Christ Among the Partisans

THERE is no such thing as a "Christian politics." If it is a politics, it cannot be Christian. Jesus told Pilate: "My reign is not of this present order. If my reign were of this present order, my supporters would have fought against my being turned over to the Jews. But my reign is not here" (John 18:36). Jesus brought no political message or program.
