Kansas City Faith Blogger Confronts Contradictions Of Christian Nationalism

A fascinating contemplation of political reality, our better angels and the hypocrisy inherent in using God to get votes or push mediocre public policy. The hot take is really worth a read despite so many critics of this local scribe who might react to his latest missive in a decidedly UnChristian manner. Read more:

A stand against 'Christian nationalism': 8-2-19

What is Christian nationalism? Well, as the Wikipedia page to which I just linked you says, Christian nationalists "focus primarily on internal politics, such as passing laws that reflect their view of Christianity and its role in political and social...

Quelle horreur!!!!! Christians who love their country.

Meanwhile, Totalitarian theocracies flourish all over the globe under the Salafist Flag and in NO GO communities here in this country, but my guess, is that Billy Tammy isn't interested in the words of Allah coming before the Rule Of Law in the US, or any other country.

Europe is rapidly transforming, right in front of our eyes, into nations where the Koran supersedes traditions and laws going back to Runnymede and Ancient Athens, but, the real threat, the one that all of the Democrats on the stage for two nights in a row and Billy Tammy feel can ruin his new, shiny, Globalist initiatives, is White Christian Nationalism.

Onward Christian Soldiers motherfucker!

How do think these scumbags limboed their way into congress and instantly started trying to destroy us ale a look at Europe ,England destroyed,France full of stinking nigger muslims, Scandinavia full of the animals , Germany overran.All of these idiot liberal ran country’s are now in trouble with these animals in their country with no go zones etc. the only solution I see is to iradicate the disease out of the body of the country or the country dies

You want the truth, read what I wrote.

^^I never read what you write. Just as you never make eye contact with the crazy-ass bastard shouting in the streets. it just encourages them.

chuck said...

7:57 Liar. You read every word. Your blood pressure goes into the stratosphere and you fume as you instinctively know I am right and it makes you even crazier because your "identity" is tied up in a narrative that is a lie and you realize your whole life has been controlled by that same false narrative. Then, you double down, because you are a coward who refuses to face the truth, which, makes you even more angry.

You're fucked.

Have a great day, I am off to work. Hope I helped.

So where do you Satan worshiping idiots get your hope from? Just living in a corrupt world and bashing Christians on the street and drinking your hopeless life into a drunken stupor at the local do drop inn?? Pathetic!
@7:57 You don't make eye contact because that so called bastard as you would call him has convicted you and you are too much of a coward to admit he is right. You are the scum on the streets not him!

8:56, you dont know who lived at 2453 main street in 1941, or the color of trumans car in 1946, or the workmans name who placed the last brick on oak park mall, or the life guards name right now at the olathe pool- yet you propose to have all knowledge and pronounce God doesnt exist? Have you checked every planet in the universe?

"Christian Nationalism" is just as nonsensical as "White Nationalism".

Neither word goes with "nationalism".

You can't even call yourself an "American Nationalist", either, unless your a Native American.

Just admit that you're a white man who hates non-whites, & non-Christians. You don't need to invent a new ideology. Just call your self a racist.

greg said...

People dont realize that god is not Santa. God is hidden as thats his choice. God never said he existed to save all mankind either. God will judge and deal out punishment to people. He will save some, destroy others. He made hell and its burning now, and waiting for some of you. God is not going to forgive everyone. Only those that honestly seek and find him. God has said that FEW will avoid hell. Most people will be punished in hell. Thats the way it was long before I was born. Hell means seperation from God and what you desire- NO MORE: sex, beer, cigs, porn, parties, friends, food, wealth,comfort and happiness. Hell is abject poverty. Its solitary confinement forever, as you can never pay off your crime of rejecting your creator. In 50 years most people reading this will be in hell.

^^Ugh huh. Just because you're dumb enough to believe that, doesn't mean the rest of us are. Oh, I thought God said something about judging others lest you be judged. See you in hell loser!

God didn't say "Judge not lest you be judged". A similar bible verse is taken way out of context by people who don't want to be judged for their evil. Think that is going to keep judgement off you? A matter of fact Christ judged every person he ever met, as good or bad, he even told the pharasees they were going to go to hell! Threw the vendors out of the temple and told them they were of the devil. The Bible says "don't walk in the counsel of the wicked, nor stand in the path of sinners, or sit in the seat of the scornful of God". Now HOW are you going to accomplish that - if you don't judge someone as a sinner, or scornful person? It basically means don't hang out with people who are bad and disrespect God. But you don't have to believe me. People will judge you all day for the clothes you wear, the car your drive, your appearance, your income -you cannot escape judgement. PLUS I don't even have to judge anyone - YOU have an set judgement date, a day and time, in front of God, God will judge you more fairly than any human - and give you exactly what you deserve. God is not 100% love, like santa. He is wrath and an executioner of many.

1:47, you are funny. The "judge not" verse deals with the topic of hypocrisy, NOT judgement or liberally accepting everything someone does. Try telling a judge, cop, teacher, or spouse to "judge not least you be judged" and see what happens! Even Jesus didn't use that line in front of Pilate in court.

In the immediately following verse, Jesus requires good judgment: “Don’t give what is holy to the dogs, nor throw your pearls before swine.” Wouldn’t this require identifying who the “dogs” and “swine” are? What about identifying the “wolves in sheep’s clothing,” whom we “will know from their fruits” in 7:15–20? Elsewhere in Matthew (chapter 18), Jesus lays out guidelines for dealing with a “brother who sins,” involving a progression from showing him his error in private to taking the matter before the whole community. In the same vein, Paul repeatedly emphasizes the church’s responsibility to judge its members. People have an obligation to speak up for the good, and criticize the bad. Don't try to hide behind a verse you don't understand. It wont work. If you don't believe in God, then look up "unbelievers" in the bible and see what GODs judge will be for you in the future. Its mentioned many times. Then it wont be quite a surprise.

5:02 You say there is no God? Who poured the floor concrete at Sprint center? Where is Elton John right now? What company was the largest paper manufacturer in France in the 1960's? What is the most common car in Kansas? You don't know those answers? Really? But you propose to be all knowing and know for SURE that God doesn't exist? And you haven't even visited all the planet in the universe looking for God? You have never been off earth! Maybe you have never been out of the continental USA? But you think you know God doesn't exist based on a "feeling and hunch"? That's not very scientific. Read about DNA. Its basically a digital language more advanced than any computer language ever developed. Did DNA just pop out of the mud? Or did something create it? Did Cobol come from mud or a mind?

@5:04 & @5:15-I just spoke to God. He’s pretty angry at you for purposely misstating his words and being a judgmental prick. He wanted me to tell you that for that, you’re going to hell. I’m sorry, there’s nothing you can about it.

God is not a fake entity to control the masses. History proves that a government that does NOT believe in God, that uses mass punishments and strict laws is much more successful in keeping the masses alive. A god believing Government allows people to sin when they want, and then later be forgiven.

I am just informing you of your future. I am not a judge, only a judge can deal out punishment. Glad I am not a judge too. But I know right from wrong like you do. I am just mentioning that God will judge you. Not me!

^^^and likewise, I am only informing you of your future. God has told me you are hell bound. Sorry. Not sorry.

Anonymous said...

I can't be hell bound if I acknowledge God, ask for his forgiveness, and follow God. But at one point in time I was 100% hell bound for damn sure! And I deserved it too! But my sentence was commuted by God. But yes- I was at one point just as hell bought as Hitler. "Trying to live a good life" don't cut it in the end. You cant work your way into heaven by yourself. Being "better than other people" and being a "pretty good" person don't cut it. Plus God does NOT "speak" to people, any people, including ministers or priests directly anymore. That ended in 1 A.D. Anyone that says God spoke to them is mistaken.

God didn’t speak to Moses??? Hmm...I thought he did. Also, how do you know he doesn’t talk to people?? You were indignant when someone said they didn’t be livid in God. You said “ how do you know”. Well how do you know he didn’t talk to me? He did, and I regret to inform you you are back on track for hell.

Anonymous said...

God stopped "talking" to people when Christ left in 1 A.D. - Mosses lived long before that, 1,500 years before 1 A.D. However I am perfectly fine with the fact that many people do not believe in God at all. I may ask them how they came to that thought. But unbelief is something that cant be changed. Christ mentioned unbelievers many times and that's just the way things are. Its not my problem. It is God's problem. I am under no obligation to try and change anyone's mind or "convert" people. There is no rule or quota of people you have to convert to "get to heaven". Your future is your decision, not mine. If my unbelieving sisters die and stand there before the judgement seat of God and say "Joe, my brother, he never told me about God, and he is a Christian" - guess what - NOT MY PROBLEM. I am not going to be held accountable. Each person is responsible for their own future. God didn't create hell for it to be empty. If God was going to forgive everyone he would have done just "done it" and dropped a huge 100 mile high stone on the earth that said your all forgiven - and then no need to send Jesus and who started the church. God's plan includes a certain number of people going to hell and to heaven. Those that "seek God" will find him and follow him. Many of my friends are going to hell of their own free choice. But there wont be any parties, beers, music, fun, or friends, its solitary confinement forever, with no chance of getting out. But people get a better deal than the "fallen angels" that rebelled against God - none of the fallen angels can ever be forgiven, the go to hell, and they will watch people like me get forgiveness and go to heaven, where they once lived. So don't complain -right now you have a better deal/offer than the fallen angels that were once God's best friends! Good luck to you!

Hey, kiddies....enough with the vacation bible school talks. Go outside and enjoy God's creations....climb trees, skip ropes, make some mud pies, then play dodge cars on the highway.

6315 people die each hour. That's over 144,000 each day. Multiply that times 365. If 90% of them go to hell, it must be a pretty crowded, cramped place. My friend who is a shrink says people wrongly have the notion in the back of their mind, that they are the one person that might not ever die. Its built in denial. And this is NOT a Christian nation. Its a weird nation. Many Arab countries do not have porn, booze, bad music, and they kill child molesters and thieves. But our nation is kind of a pansy nation of "let anyone do anything", lets not make anyone mad by telling them they are wrong. People want to marry their dog, let them. People want to act like they are the other sex, let them. We are messed up, but NOT a Christian nation that's for sure.

Every religion is tolerated in america, except christianity. Most church shootings are directed towards christians. We are no longer a christian country. People dont like that message. They have turned to other man made religions, that let you do what you want
