When Jesus is referred to as “Lord” in the New Testament, it is in direct response to the common propaganda of that day propping the Roman Emperor as “Lord of All” When the early Christians said, “Jesus is Lord” they were essentially articulating that Christians have a greater allegiance than Caesar.  Ultimately, they were citizens of God’s kingdom and were called to uphold the laws, principles, and values of this system.  In today’s world, politics and faith have often been mixed.   Some equate Christianity with the Republican Party and others to the Democratic Party. It can be boldly said that many are more loyal to the mantras and creeds of their political parties than the teachings and principles of Jesus.  In the New Testament, we read about a new type of Kingdom that transcends borders and advocates love.
