Overall, USA is a very patriotic country. With the exception of some small groups of people, we are proud of our country. Freedom, liberty, democracy, capitalism --we love these things! Although it's hard to see today, we often talk about America being a Christian country, founded on Christian values.
Often we think about how America could be better. We want to protect our borders, only fight our own battles, and grow our economy.
Have you ever thought that we maybe we are getting the United States of America confused for the Kingdom of God? Do we think that as USA gets better, the Kingdom of God will come?
The body of Christ, the universal church is a global thing. Hebrews 11 talks about how we are not of this world, but strangers here. Should we be patriotic at all? If so, to what extent? Where should we give our allegience?
