Political power… at what cost? A dark and dying world needs to see a tangible representation of a holy and righteous and just God. That’s the role given to the Body of Christ. But it seems as if the goal of too many Christians these days is grabbing political power by any means necessary. Is it worth it?
I’ve added a couple more book reviews. I’ve just finished reading read a couple books on the problems of nationalism and (I think it’s related) the way that some segments of the American church are more interested in winning than being Christlike.
Taking Native American land and life to secure European refugees the ability to worship God freely is deeply enshrined in the Christian Nationalism view of American history. But that seems to run counter to the nature and actions of God described throughout the Bible.
