U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) announced her presidential candidacy in February 2019, having built a reputation as one of President Trump’s top critics. She won election to the U.S. Senate in 2012 after teaching law at several schools, including Harvard University.

Warren also has been outspoken about her religion.

Here are five things Christians should know about the faith of Elizabeth Warren:

1. SHE FORMERLY TAUGHT SUNDAY SCHOOL

Warren, during a 2019 CNN Town Hall, told of how he formerly taught fifth-graders at her Methodist church in Oklahoma.

“All I can say is, nobody got hurt,” she joked. “It was a low bar for being a fifth grade Sunday school teacher at our church. And I raised my children in the Methodist church.”

2. SHE SAYS MATTHEW 25 INFLUENCED HER

Warren, during the CNN Town Hall, mentioned the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats in Matthew 25 as a passage that impacted her personal and public life.

“This is the one where the shepherd is dividing the world into the sheep and the goats,” she said. “And as we all know, sheep are going to heaven, goats, they’re not. And the sheep ask him, ‘Why us? Why us, Lord? Why did you pick us? We look like those – like those guys.’ And the shepherd, the Lord, answers back by saying, ‘I was hungry, and you gave me food. I was thirsty, and you gave me water. I was in prison, and you visited me, naked and ye clothed me. Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of these, the least of thy brethren, you have done it unto me.’

“And what I hear in that is two things that guide me every day. The first is … there is value in every single human being – every single human being. And the second is that we are called to action.”

3. SHE DISREGARDS RELIGIOUS CONSERVATIVES OPPOSED TO GAY MARRIAGE

Warren, at a Human Rights Campaign forum, was asked, “Let’s say you’re on the campaign trail and a supporter approaches you and says, ‘Senator, I’m old-fashioned, and my faith teaches me that marriage is between one man and one woman.’ What is your response?”

“Well,” Warren responded. “I’m going to assume it’s a guy who said that, and I’m going to say, ‘Then just marry one woman. I’m cool with that.’”

She then added, “Assuming you can find one.”

The answer drew applause and laughter from the pro-gay marriage audience.
