Far too many who profess to follow Jesus instead follow a religion and doctrines which deals with "after the fact" and little of Jesus' times and teachings that He spent on us beforehand. Wasted effort and purpose in His part?
Perhaps that is why so many seem proficient in the ideals of the world and it's politics. Ways and politics which actually defy Jesus; thus doing battle with His Kingdom to the end. Yet many of these are quick to hide themselves when their tenuous grasp on Jesus is unable to defend their beliefs in comparison to the Kingdom. Perhaps the grasp is weak precisely because the focus is not on Jesus but on a religion. A religion which for the most part ignores His teachings altogether in favour of another gospel and how to built an institutionalized religion. If they are weak in Jesus' Gospel of the Kingdom, does that not then indicated they are still strong in the ways of the world of man? The governance they follow is clear.
Matthew 13:38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
Matthew 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.
Mark 1:14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God, 15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
