Why Christ followers should spurn ‘identity politics’

Alan Keyes exhorts ‘people who seek life as citizens in the Kingdom of God’

Though there are notable exceptions, my life experience suggests that people with a lot of power and money have trouble trusting their fate to anything else. Of course, this is what Christ’s encounter with the wealthy ruler in Luke 18:18-23 (compare with a similar account in Mark 10:17-31) leads us to expect. The ruler comes to Christ asking: “Good Master, what must I do to inherit eternal Life?” Recalling first of all the standard of God’s perfection, Christ answers the question with reference to the commandments of God: “Thou shalt not murder. Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Honor thy father and mother.” The rich ruler replies, “These things have I kept from my youth.”

    • Which when Jesus had heard, he said to him: Yet one thing is wanting to thee. Sell all whatever thou hast and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven. And come and follow me.
    • He, having heard these things, became sorrowful: for he was very rich. And Jesus seeing him become sorrowful said: How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God. For it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.

Given the “prosperity gospel” mindset that is, these days, not uncommon in ministries and churches that profess to follow Christ, Christ’s response to the wealthy prince may seem insufficiently welcoming and winsome. Rather than risk a crestfallen response, today’s more accommodating church teachers might be more likely to smile and say, “Come follow Christ. He welcomes everyone.”
