Our Left – Right politic divide creates problems for understanding and living in God’s love.
God loves us AND them.
I have been thinking about Identity Politics in the Gospel of Luke.
Identity Politics are great for politics – everyone should bring their whole humanity to the table and should vote according to their social location.
While Identity Politics are great for politics, it is not great for community.
It exposes that the Left is just the inverse of the Right – and neither is the gospel.
The gospel of God’s love transcends and even subverts our current political divide.
