Does our patriotism overshadow our Christianity?
“Hear, O Israel! The LORD is our God, the LORD is one!”
Does our patriotism overshadow our Christianity? It often does because it (and Christianity) originally had some semblance in righteousness. God will not take a back seat to patriotism when the nation has chosen to forsake Him. The majority voted for a party that wants God to be relegated to the imaginary, the inconsequential or wants all gods to be equal. With no God, they have no sense of consequences. Oh my, we are seeing the consequences, the very dismantling of the system that made it possible for them to choose. Faint not, God knows.
“It is religion and morality alone which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free constitution is pure virtue.” John Adams

Dare we ask ourselves, in being offended, could both sides be deceived and not just “them?” Is it possible Satan hates BOTH sides (ya think?) and has deceived all of us into ungodly reactions through this turmoil we are seeing? You bet’cha! Man we have been duped for destruction! The topic or offense does not excuse our angry reaction. It is the biblical hope of our enemy! God’s word is the enemy’s only weapon! If he can get us to violate it, God will be forced to do what He must do. His Word will judge us!
God never looked for a confession. He looks for convictions! He looks for commitment based on understanding that, by the power that lies within, (Prov 8:14) sweeps aside worldly and religious doctrines as well as lethal attitudes, to choose life by the power of love!

In the guardianship of Christ,
We initiate the return of Christ! (The E-book)
