Anna-Karin Strömberg Posted almost 3 years ago Is christianity what Jesus wanted? I'm fully convinced that Jesus wouldn't be happy with the majority of Christian churces today. Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23: “Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will. Many will say to me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and expel demons in your name, and perform many powerful works in your name?’ And yet then I will confess to them: I never knew YOU! Get away from me, YOU workers of lawlessness." The first priority for Jesus was to preach the good news about God's Kingdom. That is what he taught his followers to do. He would never have been part of the political arena, or promoted war. So he wouldn't have accepted anyone who claim to be a Christain, yet participate in politics and/or war. At least that's what I've understood from reading the Gospels.
