I'll paraphrase Pontius Pilate when he asked Jesus, 'What is truth?'. I say to you, "What is reason? What you think it is for your own purposes?" I have found over the years that trying to explain Christ to someone who doesn't know Him, is like trying to explain the color purple to a blind person. They just can't visualize it. But...if you really are open, and few are, to knowing the truth and you examine God's plan for the human race, you'll find it is a perfectly reasonable analysis of the human condition & the way out.. But having said this I have problems with bringing Christ into political talk. Politics is an illusion invented by humans to distract us from what God really wants us to do for Him in our personal lives.
