Rachel: “The so-called “true conservatives” hold Republican candidates to a standard that virtually no one but Jesus could adhere to.”
That’s a bridge too far for your hyperbole.
Rachel: “Oh wait, the Pharisees and Sadducees didn't think even Jesus lived up to high enough standards.”
Most of the Pharisees (who believed in the Resurrection) and the Sadducees (who did not) were more interested in holding onto their own power than believing or obeying God’s Word.
What legitimate “standard” in all of God’s Word could the Jews truthfully or accurately point out that Jesus Christ did not exemplify?
There was not one.
