If God ran forPresident of the United States, would He be elected?
With all the talk of candidates joining the race for president and recent decisions made by our Supreme Court, and hailed by the White House and much of the populace, I thought, what if Jesus ran for president?
He would lose all the pro-abortion votes, because anyone for abortion hates Jesus. Proverbs 8:36 - "All they that hate me love death."
The homosexuals would be out in droves to oppose Him. Levticus. 18:22 - "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
Those that oppose traditional marriage would come out against Him as well. Matthew 19:4 - "Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female."
Jesus would drastically revamp the welfare system and lose those votes. II Thessalonians 3:10 - "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat."
He would have those with class envy be against him because He would propose a flat percentage tax, the same for everyone, rich and poor alike, like the tithe. Malachi 3:8 - "Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings."
What would Jesus have to say about State Lotteries, or State run Liquor stores? What would He say about legalized prostitution or states legalizing drugs like marijuana?
He would lose the votes of 1 out of every 5 American men who are hooked on pornography, and others if He chose to close down porn sites, like: Cable Stations, Movie Renters, Magazines, and Hollywood. Matthew 5:28 - "That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart."
As Isaiah 5:20 declares, "Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil."
Jesus wouldn’t have a chance to be elected.
