Patriotism vs. God

Can you be a Christian and a Patriot?

Before you answer that question, let me remind you that you cannot be a follower of Christ, if you love ANYTHING more than God. In fact, the best definition of idolatry is the love of something, more than God.

So, are you a patriot?

Of course, your answer might change a bit if that nation is truly following God. The problem is that there isn’t any nation today that follows God, so the issue is moot. And, I’m afraid that I haven’t dealt with this question as well as I should, in my own life.

TRUTH – Our Biggest Challenge

We are beset with lies. They surround us. They attempt to invade everything that we do. They try to divert our attention. They trip us up when we try to make intelligent decisions. And, the lies are so much more fun than the TRUTH.

That’s why the truth is such a challenge. It’s painful. It’s ugly. It holds a mirror up and shows us that we aren’t as strong or as beautiful as we would like to be.

So, I understand why TRUTH is such a challenge. But, if you want to live long and prosper… If eternity is your destination… you’d better accept the challenge of accepting the TRUTH.

An Era of Insanity

Very little in our world seems to make sense. It’s as if the people around us are living in an alternate reality, vastly different from the one that you and I live in. And, it is that insanity that will destroy the world.

Worse, the insanity is so great, so broad and so deep, that pointing it out to those who suffer from it, will get you nowhere. They are caught in the grip of madness, and we would do well to stay as far from its grasp as possible.

If you think that you aren’t vulnerable, think again.

Appointments from God

We get them. All of us.

In fact, you might even say that the founding of America was one of them.

The problem is that they are often not what we want them to be, or what we expected. And, that’s a problem because we often try to skip those appointments because they don’t fit our idea of what a ‘proper appointment’ should be.

You’ve probably had lots of those if you are a follower of Christ.

If you AREN’T a follower of Christ, there’s one truly awful appointment that you will not avoid, unless you become one.

You Need To Take It Back

We have allowed our lives to become cluttered with lies and fantasy. We built castles in the air and filled them with pipe dreams. Our grandparents dreamed of a glorious future, and our parents shared those glorious dreams with us. And, we bought it.

We invested ourselves in the promise of shiny new toys in a glorious future. We put the one-eyed god in our living rooms and allowed its soothing propaganda wash over us. We handed over the minds of our precious children to the government and worshiped at Hollywood’s temples.

But, you’ve begun to wake up. You’ve started to realize that something is wrong. You’ve finally realized that you paid too much for something worthless, so there’s only one thing to do:

You Need To Take It Back.
