The Politics of Jesus – Life, Hope & Truth

The Politics of Jesus – Life, Hope & Truth

It may come as a surprise to many, but Jesus Christ did not involve Himself with the politics of His day. Even though He had a strong interest in government, He chose not to become involved in any of the political factions of the day, either in the Jewish government or in its overseer, the government of Rome.

Christ had good reason to remain apart from politics. The message He preached was about government, but a government He would bring to the earth, not one that would come about through human effort. Jesus’ message was about the government of God that will rule the world and that will bring about world peace!

On one occasion, a crowd of followers was so impressed with Jesus’ miraculous ability to feed a large crowd, including 5,000 men, with five loaves of bread and two fish that they attempted to take Him by force

The Business of Politics – Political Businesses

The Business of Politics – Political Businesses

A surge of young voters is fueling a niche market that targets their growing passion.


6 min read


For nearly three decades, voter turnout among young Americans steadily declined; it seemed that people under 30 just didn’t care about elections or political issues. But the tide started turning in 2004, when voter turnout among 18- to 29-year-olds was higher than any year except 1992.

Current research shows the under-30 generation is paying more attention to politics and elections than ever before–and this politically savvy group isn’t afraid to voice its opinions. Thanks to hot-button issues such as the war in Iraq, global warming and rising gas prices, young voters and activists are not only rocking the vote, they’re rocking the businesses that allow them to display their stance on political issues.

“People have become more passionate and emotional about the outcome of the election, and they want

The 10 best things government has done for us

The 10 best things government has done for us

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — “The government is the problem,” they say. “The government can’t create jobs.” Or: “The government should just get out of the way.” How many times over the past three — or 30 — years have you heard conservatives (and even a few liberals) say that there’s no role for government in fixing our economy?

They’re wrong, but this constant refrain is having an impact on our political system; it’s narrowing our options as we struggle with excessive unemployment, burdensome debt and wasted lives.

Since its founding, the U.S. has viewed providing free, public education as a basic duty.


Dorothea Lange, Department of Agriculture

As often as this anti-government cliché is repeated, few politicians actually believe it. Republicans are just as quick as Democrats to ask for federal funding for local projects — funds that they know improve the lives of voters. Despite what they say for political
