Example text

We have no interest in running the government, or in compelling people to follow the teachings of Christ. We are taught to pray for the rulers, to "be subject to the governing authorities," and to be law-abiding citizens. " No one knows just what would happen if everyone took Jesus' way seriously. What would happen if Christians prayed regularly and earnestly and trusted God for peace? Complete, universal obedience and trust in God would release the power of God in such a mighty way as this world has never seen.

He was never rude, and He never condemned human weakness. He denounced the hypocrites among the religious people, and He wept over their unbelief and stupid ways. He loved even those who hated Him. The religious people who were so sure they were right and He was wrong had Him put to death in the most disgraceful way.
