Fish Out of Water also tried to present Jesus as a liberal. I had never really given a lot of thought to Jesus and politics, as He had no interest in being a political persuader or promoter. But it did make me think about some of the teachings of Jesus and the inspired men who wrote the Bible in light of current social political discussion.
Jesus said that marriage as constituted by God was limited to one man and one woman (Matthew 19:4-6). Is this a liberal position?
Jesus loved children and likened those in the kingdom to little children. Jesus was not in favor of killing unborn children (and yes, I can make the brephos argument to prove it). Is this a liberal position?
Jesus enjoined hard work, investment and praised capital gains. And instead of taking from the successful and giving it to the lazy, Jesus said the lazy should lose even what he has (Matthew 25:14-30). This is hardly a liberal position.
Jesus had no interest in social justice, at least not as defined by liberals today (Luke 12:13-15).
Moreover, anything the Bible teaches after the personal ministry of Christ would be Jesus' official position on the matter.
The Bible teaches that a man who will not work does not deserve to eat (2 Thes 3:10).
It upholds the right of capital punishment (Romans 13:4) as well as civil disobedience, but only when man's laws conflict with God's (Acts 5:29).
The Bible teaches that a man should work for his bread and help others of his own free will (Ephesians 4:28). It does not endorse government confiscation of the workers' gain to give to those who refuse to work.
These are not a liberal positions.
