Since the beginning, Christians have understood Jesus in one of two ways:
Jesus is a warrior leading Christian Soldiers in a global battle against Satan. Or, Jesus is a radical spiritual teacher leading individuals and civilization beyond hatred and endless conflict. A Christian's politics arise from the Jesus he worships.
On the eve of the September 11, 2001 attack, President G.W. Bush, millions of Evangelical Christians, and millions of fans of the Left Behind series banded together in the Christian Soldier camp. They believed that reality was a battle between Good and Evil, between Jesus and Satan, and that in this battle physical war was required. They retaliated against Afghanistan, passed the Patriot Act, and started a war against Iraq.
But what if, on 9/11, the President had been a man who believed in the other Jesus - Jesus the radical spiritual teacher? Faced with the same attack, and the same threat, how would he respond? How would he lead? How would the world react?
