Regardless of race, color, or party affiliation… there is a certain percentage of professing Christians that vote against Jesus’ worldview. Every election.
What is the “worldview” of Jesus, according to the Bible?
Is Jesus’ worldview your worldview?
Consider these biblical views: Voting Dichotomously, What Jesus Stands For, Which Jesus Do You Serve?, Following, Following Someone, Exposing a dichotomous heart, One Thing You Lack, Reconsider Your Life, A God Damn
- A poll in 2016 implied that 18% of white evangelical Protestants voted against Jesus’ worldview in 2016.
- A poll in 2020 (June/2020) revealed: “82% of white evangelical Protestants say they would vote for Trump if the election were held today.” [NOTE: The other 18% would presumably vote Democrat.]
For argument purposes let’s just put that number for 2020 at: 18% of all professing Christians routinely vote Democrat.
If you want to know it, the “worldview” of Jesus is discernible by examining the Bible. Jesus’ quoted words are in the New Testament, but God also inspired the Old Testament, and, since Jesus is God – Jesus’ worldview is found throughout the whole Bible.
The Dems are not the Dems of yesteryear. What about these approximately 18% that will presumably vote Democrat? Things have changed dramatically for 2020. Will they once again “go in” for the Dems?
Examining the platform for 2020, I’d say those 18% will be voting against Jesus’ worldview this year. What are the implications of “having a worldview that opposes Jesus’ own worldview?
This is not a political issue. It’s a matter of the heart, and following Jesus. Sounds a lot like serving two masters, you think?
“Love of the world, when it is a part of the thinking of a professing Christian: …involves being “in agreement with” two diametrically opposing sides: loving Jesus, AND also holding to and defending “the world” to which Jesus has expressed opposition.” – Source: Is Jesus’ worldview your worldview?
The issues are addressed in an article with the title of the very question: Is Jesus’ worldview your worldview? If Jesus’ worldview is not your worldview… then who are you actually following? It’s time to examine again: What Jesus Stands For
The Standard is set by God
I am frightened by the standard set by God for entrance into His Kingdom, into His Family. “Few there be that find it….” It is no small thing to be forgiven by God, accepted by God, made a child of God, to finally become a member of God’s family.
Salvation by Almighty God is done by Him as we give Him our all. If we do not respond by a life given-over completely to Him, then we are fooling ourselves.
