America and its place in the world.

Posted by appolus on April 11, 2017

America is a country that struggles with the notion of being Christian. But in truth, there are no, nor ever have been Christians nations. In the end all nations are secular. Yet nations can be influenced by the majority culture. This influence can be for good or for ill. If the culture is predominantly Christian in nature even if not in actuality, it will still be a force for good in the world.

It will still be a secular entity but will be somewhat restrained by its Christian influence. As that influence wains, then so does the actions that are taken simply because it is ” the right thing to do.” In the last administration we saw a radical departure from the Christian influence. The terrible situation in Syria was one example of expediency of a secular country and leadership devoid of Christian influence. Imagine if you will that some radical Muslim country was the superpower of today. Imagine if Russia or China was the superpower of the day. To imagine that is to imagine a truly dark world.

The world takes for granted the goodness of a superpower that is influenced by a majority Christian culture. As the Christian influence wains in the highest corridors of power in America then the world becomes a darker place. For in the end the true Christian will do what is right and not what is expedient. When that aspect of influence is lost to America then the world will be lost to true darkness. In the last unholy administration that was an enemy to all things Christian, we saw how that darkness effected the world.

I am not arguing for more Christian leadership in politics. My observations are of a Christian culture in decline and what effects that has on a secular world. As the world seems intent on ridding itself of any vestige of Christian influence, it cannot at the very same time mourn the coming darkness of mankind. Only in Christ is there light, all other roads lead to darkness.

    Precisely! It’s just too bad that you don’t have a world-wide megaphone so that you could shout that from the rooftops … even for just 2 minutes!

    “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Prvbs 14:34)

    Yes, there’s no such thing as a “Christian nation:” and even so, yes, Christan “majority culture” is (or should be) an influence to the good for any nation. Yes, the world would be a much worse place if the dominant nation were one whose culture didn’t value at least the lesser secular approximations of Christian principles such as Truth or mercy.

    Yet the near-absolute Christian “majority culture” of Germany in the last century certainly didn’t influence the world for good.

    And are those “cultural values” actually operative in today’s America ? Or does our recent culture show we (including the vast majority of Christians) instead believe that blatant lies and harsh treatment of others (especially those Jesus most commended to our care: the poor, sick, aliens) is the way to “Make America Great Again” ?
