Default Reflections of Christ in America

Reflections of Christ in America

Each week we are saturated with reports of America becoming less of the ‘Christian’ nation she has promoted herself to be.
I read recently where a group wants the Texas Republicans to stop calling America a ‘Christian’ nation. They site the growing diverse religious population in America as their reason.

America is at the threshold of welcoming ‘same-sex’ marriages with the apparent approval of many legislators and citizens. Is that a reflection of a ‘Christian’ nation?

As a nation, America has tolerated a spiritual decline that speaks against Christ and His principles of acceptable societal behavior. We condone and embrace lifestyles of sexual defiance with our silence. Those shameful acts of wickedness and depravity which used to be hid away from public are now flaunted on nation wide TV. America appears to be proud in her sin.

If we are to believe what is reported in the various media outlets in our nation, we have become a reflection of the biblical cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Someone has said, ‘If God does not judge us, He would owe Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.’

Preparations are taking place throughout America to celebrate our freedom during this Fourth of July annual observance. However, as a ‘Christian American,’ I find my freedom being trampled upon for the sake of other’s feelings.

I respect the feelings of others and recognize their right to have them. However, am I the only one who thinks the ‘feelings’ of ‘Christian Americans’ are placed on the shelf for the sake of unity?

Those who come to America should be willing to embrace the principles, laws, and God of America. Those raised in America should embrace the God of America. His name is Jehovah. There should be a clear proclamation of who America’s God is by the lifestyle of her citizens.

Before I am targeted as being too negative, let me state how grateful I am to be a citizen of America. While she has room for growth in her walk as a ‘Christian’ nation, she has come a long way. God’s hand has been upon America as she journeyed these 228 years. Regardless of how we have treated Him, God has been faithful to us.

I do not know of a nation more ‘Christian’ than America. I can only hope that we wake up to the task of bringing America back to her spiritual foundation of recognizing one true God…the Lord God Jehovah whose Son is Jesus Christ the only Savior of the world.

Let’s not forget that we celebrate our independence from another nation and not from God. For you see, while being an independent nation, we are Dependent upon God.
God Bless America
Rev. Warren Jones

"God of America"? I was under the destict impression God has created all menkind & then some. I'm certainly not an expert on American law, culture or even been to America, but I suppose your constitution says something different as to what citizens "should" do in regard to religion.....I can only read it that it says they should be free in that, and other respects. Without anyone telling them how they should or must.


I don't think God needs laws of men or "His" will forced upon any of His children by whomever but through His love, he has given us His version of the truth.


And something else, to call a country Christian? And then the most Christian on earth? Well, I think people can be Christians, laws can be Inspired by Christians and Christian teachings but a country, a physical place????? Hmmm I don't know


As far as statistics goes, he may be right that America has the higest percentage of practicing Christians, but then again....I recently visited Poland..and thats a pretty impressive stronghold of Christian faith as well I'd say.

I think he may have been carried away too much in his own arguments.

But, in my neck of the woods, the US is certainly perceived as a pricipally Christian nation.
Maybe I get "country" and "nation" mixed up?

That sir, is not an argument.

And yes, I do have a problem with getting rid of laws against childmolestation and rape. I don't recall I wrote anything contrary to that, or even mentioning those subjects.

Im no expert on anything. But what i think is ment is the god most belive in here, the majority & NOT that it is only Americas god. But i think the constatution says something to the effect free from relgious persacution& the free will to worship as you please etc.

But i dont know if they( founding fathers) counted on a relgion that teachs America is satan& should be distroyed either.

I think the term 'Christian America' is not accurate. America is a country where Christians have the most freedom, but they're not the only ones with that freedom. The country might be going down an 'immoral' path, but that's because individual people, not the country as a whole, have decided to do so. That's the price of religious diversity and freedom. No one can make another believe in the same principles. Each person him/herself is the only one who can determine what kind of and how much morality to offer the nation.

That is a very correct summation of it. Though for many years it has been a "Christian" America, I feel that all religions do have the same equality of rights.

I have to agree with Clint on most of this. America was founded by people searching for a place to worship God. The God of the Bible, not some made up god. When any nation or people has turned their back to God they have suffered. And with all that America is allowing to happen nowadays it is surely beginning to turn if it already hasn't. It is high time Christians stop putting up with all of this junk and call sin sin. And have the faith to stand behind those convictions and make some serious changes in how America does things, and what it allows to go on and be shown. Enough is enough.

Right Charlie, we were found on Judeo-Christian beliefs but with a secular government so as not to push any one way of thinking onto the masses. I think we should respect that fact yet be tolerant to who believe in what to an extent. So it we would not be who we are if we told newcomers" Welcome, now you have to beleive in our God"
