Against his core teachings?

David Gushee – quoted in the Jan. 29 cover story “Meet the post-Evangelical Christians. They’re just getting started.” – observed that post-Evangelicals are “following Jesus out of American evangelicalism.” Bravo! Many Christians like me think that the political Evangelicals getting attention today have ignored Jesus for some time. Might that be why their numbers are declining?

Jesus’ core teachings are love, inclusiveness, and social justice. Aren’t many political Evangelicals coming up short on all of these measures?

The kingdom of which Jesus preached was spiritual, not earthbound. Jesus’ Great Commission instructed his disciples to go into all the world, baptizing new disciples and teaching them to observe the commandments. Where did Jesus mention creating nations on earth?
