Jesus and Politics

What is Politics?

            Use of intrigue or strategy in obtaining any position of power or control, as in business, university, etc.

            The art or science concerned with winning and holding control over a government


Some people have advised me out of good conscience not to mix politics with Church. They have corrected me by saying keep politics out of church. After studying the life and ministry of Jesus Christ in the Bible, I have decided to debunk their advice because it is totally in opposition to what the Bible teaches. I have high respect for any person who corrects me using God’s word and if I see that their point is biblically correct, I have no problem following their lead. But if what they say does not match up to God’s word, then I ought to obey the word rather than people’s opinion, philosophy or theory.

After I went through the four gospels and studied the debates and arguments between the Pharisees and Jesus, I realized that Jesus was heavily involved in Politics. But you don’t have to take my word for it. Just read your Bible. The conclusion I came to at the end was that Jesus was one of the greatest politician and debater in the history of mankind. It was for political reason; he was falsely accused and crucified. Read the four gospels and you will see the point I am making very clearly.

Pastor Oral Roberts once said to a crowd and also wrote in one of his books that the miracle settles the issue. Now for any average person, a miracle is pretty solid prove that God is not only real but he still performs supernatural acts today. But it seems very clear from Jesus encounter with the Pharisees, Sadducees and Scribes that the miracle did not convince them that Jesus was indeed the Son of God. So what conclusion can we make from all this? Why would the leaders or politicians of Jesus day decide not to believe in Him after he provided them more than sufficient evidence for His divinity? The reason is simple: Politics. They could not let Christ take over the people who were under them and loose their authority because the people wanted to make Jesus their leader. It was their desire for power, fame and money that drove them to falsely accuse an innocent man and have Him crucified mercilessly on a cross. Hopefully those words: power, fame and money ring a bell in your minds and remind you that these are what politicians seek. They just love exercising their authority over the weak and vulnerable and further their political propaganda.

Jesus Argues with the Politicians of His Day

Argument 1

Luke 13:10-17 MEV

[10] He was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. [11] And there was a woman who had a spirit of infirmity for eighteen years and was bent over and could not straighten herself up. [12] When Jesus saw her, He called her and said to her, "Woman, you are loosed from your infirmity." [13] Then He laid His hands on her, and immediately she was made straight and glorified God. [14] But the ruler of the synagogue answered with indignation, because Jesus had healed on the Sabbath, and said to the people, "There are six days in which men ought to work. Therefore come and be healed on those days, but not on the Sabbath day." [15] The Lord answered him, "You hypocrite! Does not each one of you on the Sabbath untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and lead it away to water it? [16] Then should not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham whom Satan has bound these eighteen years, be loosed from this bondage on the Sabbath?" [17] When He said this, all His adversaries were ashamed. And all the people rejoiced for all the glorious things that were done by Him.

In the above narrative, the reader can clearly notice that the argument the Pharisees are making is not a spiritual argument but it is a legal argument politically engineered to fit their agenda. In verse 10, the point is made clearly that Jesus is teaching in the synagogue. The Pharisees did not have a problem with his teaching. Why? Because he was using their law book, the Torah to teach. As long as Jesus is meeting their legal conditions, they are fine. Verse 12 & 13 talks about Jesus healing a lady with back problem. Now you would think that Jesus would be praised for doing something so wonderful but no my friends. He was politically incorrect in doing good on a Sabbath. Oh yes. Now the Pharisees have to politically correct him for his action. Remember the argument the Pharisees are making is a political argument about being politically correct. It has nothing at all to do with spirituality but it had everything to do with them making a law not to do any work on Sabbath. Unfortunately Jesus gives a counter argument saying that they themselves were not obeying the legal laws they were implementing on Him. That’s point one. The second point Jesus makes is that legally this lady was Abraham’s daughter and therefore her covenant with God made her eligible for the miracle. Jesus mentions Satan by name to point out that He was using illegal means to torment Abraham’s daughter. Friends, if you don’t know your legal rights, folks will simply crush you under their feet. The Pharisees were more concerned about politically correcting Christ instead of rejoicing at the miracle God had performed. Always remember folks, Satan is a legalist. He attacks folks through legal means and leaves the Christian totally handicapped and helpless. It’s time we throw political correctness in the garbage where it belongs and take politics to the church and educate our people on how they can legally make a difference in their city, state, nation, school, university etc.

Argument 2

John 8:3-11 MEV

[3] The scribes and Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery. When they had put her in the middle, [4] they said to Him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of adultery. [5] Now Moses in the law commanded us to stone such, but what do You say?" [6] They said this, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear them. [7] So when they continued asking Him, He stood up and said to them, "Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her." [8] Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. [9] Being convicted by their conscience, those who heard it went out one by one, beginning with the eldest even to the last. Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. [10] When Jesus had stood up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, "Woman, where are your accusers? Did no one condemn you?" [11] She said, "No one, Lord." Jesus said to her, "Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more."

I want you to notice something very interesting in this scenario. The politicians of Jesus day knew very well that the law required the stoning of the woman caught in adultery. Then why are they bringing her to Jesus. It’s obvious that they are making a legal argument that is politically engineered to frame Jesus in a situation where they are politically correct in their action which leaves Jesus no room to do a counter argument. Amazingly our Lord is just too smart. He very cleverly responses to them by pointing out that the one who has not sinned throw the first stone. What? Yes, that correct. Now every person regardless of what they believe knows that we have all committed acts, which we ourselves can testify to as being wrong. What Jesus is doing here is taking a legal approach by applying the same legal principle to the very folks who are trying to implement it. The result is another defeat for the politicians of Jesus day.

Examples of Politics from the Old Testament

I don’t want to put dozens of scriptural passages to prove my point here because I truly believe that you as a reader and believer are smart enough to understand the points I am making below.

  1. Satan brought a legal accusation in the Garden of Eden against God, which ended up with Adam and Eve rebelling against God. Their rebellion led to Satan becoming the God of the World legally but by corrupt means. That’s what politics is about; gaining power over others and implementing your rules upon them.
  2. God has to make Joseph the second person in charge of Egypt to make sure he could legally vouch for his father and siblings to come and stay in Egypt and escape the famine. Think about it. If God has no interest in Politics, then what was his purpose for making Joseph second in charge in Egypt. This is the reason we always need True Christians taking all positions of leadership in our nation. They will not only protect the rights of Christians but also everyone else making sure ungodly laws are not passed in our nation.
  3. God put Daniel in Babylon as an advisor for the king. There were those who hated Daniel because the King really liked this guy and appreciated the wisdom God had given him. The hateful party bought a legal accusation because they did not want a foreigner running the show in their nation. They were jealous of him. Their accusation was politically engineered to demoralize Daniel and bring about his destruction. You all know the story. The point I want to make is that ungodly leaders and politicians work for the Devil and their only purpose is to destroy God’s people. They will keep coming at us and destroying us unless we take a stand. We need ungodly folks removed from leadership positions from our city, state, government, schools, universities etc. They are the enemies of the cross. They are using legal and political means to reach their end goal that is the destruction of Christian thought and order. Therefore we Christians don’t have a choice but to make sure we have as many Christians as possible taking up all positions of leadership and enforcing Godly laws for the benefit of all mankind.


I have a few suggestions which I greatly feel will help us all in getting our nation back to the Judeo-Christian Principles which made our nation great.

  1. Always vote. Your vote makes a big difference. Remember it takes one vote to win or loose. Make sure you do research on the people you vote for and make sure you are voting for people who support Judeo Christian principles. Two rules of thumb- vote for folks who love America and its people; two - they support the nation of Israel.
  2. Make sure you attend Town Hall meeting and school meetings to speak out your concerns about what you feel is wrong and what action the city or school is taking to correct them.
  3. Write letters to your editor, governor, senator and congressman/women who represent your city and state addressing the concerns you have and what action they are taking to correct them.
  4. Support organizations, which protect our rights and fight against anti-American and anti-Semitic propaganda such as Acts for America, The Clarion Project, The Jewish Voice and Christians United for Israel.
  5. Make a list of News headlines, which are ungodly and pray against them daily binding the dark powers and principalities working behind them.
  6. Daily pray that God will raise up Christians to become leaders in in our city, state, nation, government, school, universities etc. Pray that Godly laws are passed to protect the rights of American citizens and protect America from ungodly influence and all it’s enemies.
  7. When Christians in our nation are being oppressed for their beliefs, don’t stay quiet and let it be. Take action. Contact your senator, congressman or congresswoman and tell them the situation and let them know you are expecting them to do the right thing. Ignorance is not a solution. Ignorance will destroy the Christian faith in America. Remember Christianity made America great and now we are fighting for its very survival. You may think I am exaggerating my words but think about the holocaust. One man’s ideology namely Hitler led to the death of over 15 million people of which 7 million were Jews. That’s what happens when your leaders don’t hold onto Judeo-Christian beliefs.


Wake up Christians before it’s too late.
