Jesus Was Not a Community Organizer

with one comment

If I hear one more leftist, atheist, mindless talking head say “Jesus was a community organizer, Pontius Pilate was a governor,” I swear I will sprain something from laughing so hard. Try as they might, the poor dears simply do not get the whole “God thing.”

Newsflash to the Obama campaign and its sycophants: to Christians (78% of the U.S. population): Jesus was not a community organizer, He was the son of God. Or more to the point, He was God.

Most leftists are elitists who use religion as a handy prop. If you want to get elected by a population that believes in God, it is best to act as though you do as well. (I would give anything to strap Obama, Bill Clinton and many others to a lie dectector and ask them a few questions about their beliefs). They can repeat memorized verses with the best of them, but they just don’t get what it is really all about.

Jesus did not come to organize anything. He specifically rejected the attempts of others to turn Him into just that. One wonders if anyone on the left has ever heard “render unto Caesar that which is Casesar’s, and unto God that which is God’s?” Or how about “my Kingdom is not of this world?” Jesus was in fact betrayed because Judas wanted Jesus to be more of a, shall we say, community organizer?

Jesus did not come to organize communities or build a political base. He came to speak the truth to those who would listen. He told us it is our obligation to love (including help) our brothers. He did not group people together to demand support from others. The left will never understand this difference between an obligation to do good, as opposed as a non-existent right to receive that good.

To Christians, Jesus did not try to organize a community, found a local church, or do anything that remotely resembles what “community organizers” do. He came to do no less than save the world from itself. The left is so lost in this area, maybe they should have Charlie Gibson interview somebody about it.

  1. Did Jesus tell His followers to petition Rome for health care for the Centurion’s wife or the man going down from Jerusalem who was attacked by robbers? Did Jesus organize petitions to send to Pontius Pilate for abolishing the death penalty? Did Jesus lead his followers on a march to Caiaphas the High Priest’s house for more rights for widows and orphans? Doesn’t sound like a community organizer to me.
