Is America a Christian Nation? Does America have a Christian Heritage and History?
Barack Obama says America is not a Christian Nation. People are offended.
I have found this to be an almost impossible conversation to have because it is rarely established in a conversation what is meant by “Christian Nation.” Each side means something different.
Possible meanings of “Christian Nation”:
I am not a historical expert, although I hope I will be when you ask me again in 15 years. I have read a number of things and listened to a number of arguments and here are my current conclusions about America.
We still have freedom. We can still turn this thing around.
Christian Revival and Christian Teaching can make America a Christian Nation again. We cannot (and should not) force everyone (or anyone) to have faith in Christ; but the Kingdom of God is like Yeast (Luke 13:20-21) – if Christians live it out, it will leaven the whole batch of dough! We’ll have nothing to fear from the “tares among the wheat.”
I believe there is hope for America. The faulty foundations of humanism that have been crammed into the place where Christianity was will crumble and fail. They can do nothing else.
We need to build up the next generation of Christian Believers to be ready to rebuild America when the enemies of God fail.
There’s lots of work for us to do! Let’s get to it!
