„If Jesus truly is Lord, then Jesus must be Lord of our political life, as well as our spiritual life.
Jesus’ gospel of the kingdom is intensely political. I hope we’ve established at least that much in this article. To accept Jesus’ theological teachings while neglecting or outright rejecting his politics is to have only half of his gospel.
I’m not suggesting that we necessarily have to affirm socialism itself as a part of the gospel. There’s room for discussion and debate on such particulars. But we must engage in politics that advocate for the oppressed, the marginalized, and the poor. This is absolutely central to Jesus’ message. His gospel simply is not the gospel without it.”
