The Church is selling her soul. The Church has lost her “tribal” identity, replaced with the flag and American culture. The Church has adopted a Caesar mentality, working through the state to accomplish her task…this is why the Church is failing. It has embraced Empire theology. This is the danger, the down fall, the Church is still entrenched in Constantine…the nation has been unified by the Empire’s false adoption of Jesus-Jesus becomes a unifying tool to control and give identity to a people. This is dangerous. God becomes safe, is giving form. When followers of Christ identify who their individuality with the State, we begin to water down the Gospel; Christians are ok with war, nuclear weapons, and state sanctioned violence…Why???? Well, the Nation State has become God. Do not question America because one should not question God.
