In 1980 I campaigned for Ronald Reagan as a conservative Christian.
Both the religion and the politics became untenable in the course of the next eight years,
In all of this activity where was Jesus the Person ?
Can't one be steeped in all this activism and be far from the enjoyment of Christ Himself ?
In the Gospel it says that there was a crowd of people crowded around Jesus. But one woman touched
Him. Jesus was amazed and stopped to asked "Who touched Me?"
He felt power flow out of Him. He knew someone touched Him.
His disciples thought He must be crazy. Couldn't He see all this huge crowd of people crowded around Him. But not many had touched Him.
It is the same today. There are many people "crowded" round Jesus for this and that and the other. There are fewer who touch Him in reality and deeply.
I am sorry, but when you boast that you were so actively crowded around religious and political stuff for conservative Christian values and what not, it could just be that.
Maybe you were in the mob crowded around "Jesus," but never touched
Jesus. So what then really have you "lost"?
