Libertarianism and Christianity
Not wanting to fall into the trap that C.S. Lewis described as preaching ‘Christianity and...’
Andrew Sullivan has the following response to a correspondent who suggests that Jesus is a Libertarian:

"Jesus has no politics. He has a message of individual salvation. No political system is necessary for it; none can ultimately prevent it."

I agree with Sullivan's point that Christ stands above and apart from any political agenda, including my own. However, I would also submit that a free society is one which gives people the greatest ability to live as Jesus instructed.
