I was hoping that this discussion would not become political finger pointing as this type of discourse is polarizing and only emphasizes the problems while offering no solutions. I was probably naïve.

I don’t think the morality of the nation is going to be rescued by politicians… of either party.

Anyway, my questions were not intended to be a referendum on the country’s morality but on its Christian heritage and that Christian future.

I believe the relative morality of the U.S. remains very high, particularly in relation to the other major powers in the world. I don’t mean we are the only moral nation, or that we don’t have our problems, but we are the go-to nation when evils tries to assert itself globally.

My experiences may not be typical, but I live in an extremely diverse neighborhood that includes Sikhs, Hindus, Buddhists, Muslins, Mormons, Evangelicals, Confucianists, Catholics and we all get along here because of the values that people of all faiths tend to esteem and hold in common.

This last July, 4th my Sikh neighbors across the street hosted a holiday celebration. In addition to our Sikh hosts there were Hindus, Buddhists, agnostics and even a couple other Christians.
Besides wanting to celebrate the country’s birthday, we all shared a love of family and a desire to live in a friendly and safe environment.

Great post! Very refreshing to read!

To title a post "Is the United States of America a Christian Nation?" and not expect it to go political is a bit naive.
I did offer a solution, and that was the Gospel message which I did hope you shared with your Sikh, Buddhist, Hindu and agnostic friends during your holiday celebration. After all, they too are fallen sinners in need of a Savior.

I suggest that you move to a different location..

I even saw a guy yesterday with a t-shirt that read "guns, beer, freedom" -- disgusting!!!

I recommend that you read the parable of the good Samaritan! Samaritans were despised by the Jews in the same way that you despise others, yet he was the one Jesus chose in the parable as the example of actively caring for others. You might also read the parable of the tax collector (Luke 18:91-4) to learn about "righteousness" and judging others.

Finally, Jesus said to love our neighbors as ourselves. You should give it a try!
Sounds like a sharp bit of judging on your part ¿n'est pas?

As I admitted.

You seem personally affronted. Did I disagree with this?
which I did hope you shared with your Sikh, Buddhist, Hindu and agnostic friends during your holiday celebration. After all, they too are fallen sinners in need of a Savior.
I am a poor example of a Christian missionary perhaps.

I don’t postalize, I am not very good at it at any rate, but I do endeavor to be prepared to share when asked. Also, I have found that if I go among my neighbors and suggest they are fallen sinners I won’t be invited back to explain the Glory of our Lord.

Peace be with you brother.
 
Don't be ridiculous. He is the President. He can talk to the press whenever he wants. Why are you so disillusioned? What has blinded you to the truth?
I believe what I see not what im told. Biden lies and the liberal media swears to it. They trot him out now and then when they feel its needed. You say im disillusioned. Do you buy gas? Do you buy groceries? Do you pay utility bills? Why is the border open? Tearing down this country and rebuilding in the communist model has been the goal of your liberal party since the 1930's or perhaps before. Who is disillusioned? Or are you happy with the state of the country?
 
I suggest that you move to a different location. The US is not Sodom and Gomorrah! LGBTQ people can be (and often are) very nice, loving people, unlike the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, who were violent. I personally know several lesbians and they are more Christian in their behavior than some so-called Christians. They are kind, loving people and are unlike the judgmental "Christians" who judge their neighbors instead of loving them. As far as BLM, black lives do matter. Black people have been mistreated ever since they were forcibly loaded onto boats in Africa to be slaves for white southerners. There is still bigotry against people of color, and their lives do matter.

The government is not "trying to bankrupt us". That is nonsense! People pay taxes which are used for the many government services, from transportation to defense to social services. Jesus said to pay taxes to Caesar and Paul wrote that we should obey those in authority, so your position is unChristian. BTW, most people want to work; very few want poverty. I agree that there is violence, because we allow people to own weapons of war without screening. Children are gunned down in schools!!!

I recommend you look at reality. You appear to have bought into the socialist propaganda.

I do love my neighbor. Thats why I pray for revival. And why I am worried about my country.. My grandkids have to grow up. I do not see a very good future for them.
 
The government is not "trying to bankrupt us".

If this is true, this has to be the most inept administration in U.S. history. Inflation over 8 points and their answer is to spend more money. Biden was paying attention when Obama was trying to "spend our way out of debt".
thats how socialism works. You bankrupt the country, Make people so they can not fight then take control
 
I believe there is coming a socialist government to America and the world, the Anti Christ is given power over the whole world. A system must already be in place for him to be given power over it. In the mean time we should be demonstrating the love of Christ so that others may see HIM through us. We only have until the rapture to get the message out.
