    I think we should test this out. Pat Robertson seems to have a lot of faith. I nominate him to be the first. :mischief:

    I would consider that more communist. ;)
    You can take almost everything Jesus said and it sounds socialist.

    Root out corruption and vice within the government - the press would have a field day.

    Cut the military, for we must not make war upon our brothers and sisters, and due to this, we'd have a non-interventionist foreign policy.

    The welfare state may see expansion, but would see an increase in efficiency as abuse, waste and fraud was ruthlessly sought out. Mandated gleaning for sure.

    Not sure if he'd be in favor of state faith or not.

    Obviously Jesus would cut all programs that the Democrats like.

    I believe that Jesus would have extolled specific individuals to rely on their faith, and to not care about worldly consequences regarding their failure, but to worry about their spiritual consequences. However, like we see with his interpretation of working on the Sabbath, he's also decently practical (sometimes). The stories of Moses has the children of Israel fighting for their survival, and that their fighting was either blessed by God or not (since JHWH was more of a war-god back then). For this reason, I think Jesus'd have suggested a strong military. Individual Christian soldiers, however, would have been chastised to die instead of forsaking Christian principles, that it would be better to be killed by someone than to risk the soul.

    Why would Jesus need to run for government, when all he has to do is come down from heaven smite those that oppose him by simply speaking?

    If Jesus came back we would have no clue what he was saying. It would all be in ancient Aramaic.

    Mr. Render unto Caeser/easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle would probably jack up the tax rate on top earners a lot.

    Just my opinion on what that particular human man would advocate based on what I've read of his teachings.

    Nonsense. Jesus was also in favor of helping those who already have the power to help themselves, or something like that.:mischief:

    Wasn't that Benjamin franklin? i believe he said god helps those that help themselves, he also said that man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.

    I think you have him confused with Peter, or Constantine.
