Do you believe in a red state Jesus or a blue state Jesus?

Do you believe in a red state Jesus or a blue state Jesus?

By John Blake, CNN

(CNN) – Here's a presidential election prediction you can bet on.

Right after the winner is announced, somebody somewhere in America will fall on their knees and pray, "Thank you Jesus."
And somebody somewhere else will moan, "Help us Jesus."

But what Jesus will they be praying to: a red state Jesus or a blue state Jesus?

If elections are about choices, so is faith. And in Christianity, liberals and conservatives choose to see Jesus in different ways. Some liberals see Jesus as a champion of the poor who would support raising taxes on the wealthy, while some conservatives think Jesus would be more concerned with opposing abortion and same-sex marriage.

Good luck to anyone who tries reconciling their Jesus with the biblical accounts of his life. Even Jesus' earliest followers clashed over who he was and what he meant.

"Jesus didn't leave clear instructions," says Molly Worthern, a history professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who specializes in religious history.

"He was a man who said many things that were quite cryptic. All Christians tend to pick or chose to emphasize some of his teachings over the other."

Perhaps most Christians follow not one Jesus, but many - including a bit of a red state Jesus and a bit of a blue state Jesus. We consulted several pastors and religion professors to come up with this voter's guide to Jesus. Answer these questions, click "Submit" and see where you fall on the red state-blue state Jesus scale:

Take the quiz here.

    The question is not, is there a red state Jeebus, or a blue state Jeebus". The question is : "is there a Jeebus".
    The answer is no. If there was one, he died 2000 years ago.
    For those who think there is, be sure ans tell him "thanks" for all the pain he inflicted in New York. That'll teach 'em.

      The reverse is more accurate, you moron.

      @realbuckyball

      God holds His children close and favors them with the glory of His blessing. Our Lord's fullness cannot be contained by His tunic. His love is bursting out and all ye need do is grab hold and bathe yourself in His love.

      Tom,

      As is usual you interject with little to hardly any nuanced melodramatic and subtle linguistics worthy of any real bartering towards.

      November 2, 2012 at 8:40 pm |
    • Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son

      @bucky: you are spot on. The imbeciles will praise Jeebus for "sparing them" while ignoring the fact that people just as honest, moral, and giving had their home destroyed, their children killed, and their futures placed in jeopardy. Yet azzwipes will claim that their "Jeebus" whatever that means, "protected" them and "blessed" them.

      Why would any merciful being do any such thing? A: It wouldn't, and only morons would believe otherwise.

      Just what I thought. You didn't even graduate from grade school. So sad I am, so sad. Damn dumb teachers allowing you a free pass thru high school,,,Damn this school system! Sorry I am Tom that your IQ was diminished and not allowed to rise above your peering crowds,

      "Peering crowds" you ask me Tom? What are they?

      Rather the pointed redundancies of your leveraging toward incongruencies is boulderdash at its' prime works. Do this world a favor might you? Go back to school and try hard to be taught instead of lollygagging with the farmer and/or his daughter or son whichever was your fancies way back then.

      November 2, 2012 at 9:09 pm |
  2. Duh.

    Christians are not Mormons. They believe that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one separate god. They are monotheists who do not believe in three separate gods. They do not believe that the Father, God, is an exalted man and has a physical body. They believe that the Bible is inerrant, and that salvation comes through faith alone.

    Christians should weigh the different views of Jesus, or beliefs that the candidates (and their parties) may or may not espouse and vote based on the most important issues, such as saving lives.

  6. Jonathan

    I don't understand this "Red State/Blue State" Jesus stuff. You either believe Jesus was who and what he said he was, or you don't. There is no middle ground, no valid alternative. There is no maybe, either. If you are not for him, then you are against. You get to choose. I hope you choose correctly.

    November 2, 2012 at 7:12 pm |
    • Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son

      And the "correct" way would be what, exactly? Do you really think everything is black and white? That there are no shades of gray? That it's your way or no way?

      November 2, 2012 at 7:14 pm |
    • Be Ready

      Here here Jonathan.

      Pray, and as you do God will gently hold you in His arms and feel the passion of your soul. He would heal you and love you. He would offer you the greatest gift he can offer. He would be risen for you and penetrate you with His passion.

      These gifts are not given lightly however. If you want a happy ending, you must pay first.

      November 2, 2012 at 7:25 pm |
    • Jonathan

      Who said anything about 'my way'? I thought I was pretty clear. Its 'Jesus' Way' or no way. He stated himself that He was the only way to the Father.

      You can debate his meaning anyway you want, when you get to meet him yourself. Deny his existence all you want till then. Say there is no evidence. We'll find out one way or another.

      November 2, 2012 at 7:28 pm |
    • Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son

      "Google" is likely an unknown to a luddite like Jonny.

      November 2, 2012 at 7:30 pm |
    • Great Crabala

      Jonathan the only reason you even think that is because someone told you, if you were raised to believe in something else you would feel just as passionate about it. There is no IF there is only common sense. Magic and Gods in religion as we know it are laughably not true. Unless you lack intelligence ( or have major issues ) then magic is an easy answer to explain what you can not comprehend.

      November 2, 2012 at 7:32 pm |
    • Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son

      Jonny's post is indeed another example of Pascal's Wager, or as I like to frame it, the idiocy of the Christard who's yammering: God loves you, and if you don't love him back IN EXACTLY THE RIGHT WAY, he's going to fvck you up. Or, in other words: "Just you wait until your daddy gets home!"

      November 2, 2012 at 7:33 pm |
    • Jonathan

      You never fail to disappoint. Whenever someone has a belief that you disagree with, you start slinging mud, calling names and bashing their level of intelligence. I am neither impressed nor dissuaded from my point of view.

      Crow loudly ye birds of rebellion. I am deaf to your calls. Let one of you approach civilly and remain so throughout a conversation or be ignored like the swine you make of yourself.

      Ha, and now sarcasm. I knew it wasn't far off.

      No one invited you to start replying to my comment. You took that upon yourself and even now lack the civility to engage in a fruitful conversation. No one here is impressed.

      November 2, 2012 at 7:59 pm |
    • Tom, Tom, the Piper's Son

      "No one here is impressed." Says who? You? Who have you got there with you? Your pet gerbil? You don't get to speak for anyone else, you arrogant POS. Get a clue, Jon-jon. You're an anonymous putz on a board that's nothing special.

    • talon

      Great crabala-u can't claim to know something is not true anymore than jonathan can claim to know it is true on the subject of the existence of god. And "common sense" only works for so much. You likely believe that time,space, matter, energy, etc, exploded into being out of nothingness which contradicts every bit of common sense. That in itself sounds every bit as fairytalish and magical as you are making religion out to be

      You must be implying that 'Jonny' and 'haaaaa' are the same person under a different user name. I can assure you that I am not nor would I ever resort to baseless name-calling. Feel free to ask the moderators (if they exist) about the truth of my words but I doubt that would even matter to you.

      "No date for the evening? Did the inflatable doll spring a leak?"

      I honestly feel pity for you if you find that kind of thing humorous. I do not spend hours of my life combing the internet and posting tasteless and/or derogatory comments in response to someone's opinion. It was a Friday night. You think I would spend it online when there is a larger world outside? I had friends and family to spend time with.

      I suspect their is a foreign national pretending it is an American as if it had something to tell us. And I wonder what kind of a sick loser would have to do that, some poor pathetic wretch that is unwanted in its own country but doesn't have the balls to be a legitimate member of our land ? I prefer to think for myself as an American and unlike tom tom do not need a foreigner to do my thinking for me.
