Is your church addressing Christian Nationalism? [View all]

A recent newsletter from my church brings up Christian Nationalism as we approach the July 4 holiday.

Many churches, especially mainline ones, focus on religious faith, not politics. But when some religious denominations and individuals promote a merging of religion and politics, it becomes necessary to address the issue.

The newsletter that I received quotes Pamela Cooper-White on Christian Nationalism. She is the author of the book, Christian Nationalism: Why People Are Drawn in and How to Talk Across the Divide.

She says, "Christian Nationalism is a fanatical, radical departure from the teachings of Jesus and any faithful reading of the Gospels, and it is also dangerously anti-democratic."
