This is like asking if Jesus was a Pharisee, a Sadusee or a Herodian. The answer is...no. Jesus is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Every political system or political party is a corrupted mess that he would expose as corrupt to the core, just as he did with the power brokers in 30CE Palestine.I separated this question, because I felt it deserved to be addressed alone.
Do you think that Jesus would be considered conservative? If so, why? This is just a request for an opinion. No right or wrong answer(s). I only ask, because when I read this reply, that (bold text) was the first thing that jumped out to me. The frustration seems to be with Liberal Christians. Not with some issuing redacted bibles and using this to oppress creations of God, and others continuing this by doing all they can to suppress this history. I've read enough of your posts to feel comfortable to assume that you would want all of God's children receive the full gift of God's word (assuming you consider it a gift).
The fact is that liberal progressive Christians do much more redaction of the Bible than other Christian groups. This is demonstrably observed in liberal seminaries throughout the US where they have openly attempted to declare what words Jesus actually said as opposed to what he didn't say in the Bible.
Your attempt at tying the Bible to redaction falls squarely upon liberals going back to 17th century Germany and forward to 18th century America via Deists like Thomas Jefferson.
