Jesus & Politics

capital crossHow would Jesus feel about our current political atmosphere? Here is an excellent article discussing rivalry, democracy, power, redemption and Jesus’ love.  “As opposed to a political way of life based on a rivalry for power, Jesus’ “kingdom of heaven” is based on service, love, and compassion that reaches out to all people, even those we call our enemies.”  What do you think? Can politics and democracy be redeemed?
