Happy Independence Day

Well, I made it through the fourth with­out a Chris­t­ian antipa­tri­o­tism rant. Per­haps lat­er this week I’ll write some­thing up. I did have some­thing near­ly ready to post, but it was too bit­ter for my tastes. Blind patri­o­tism real­ly both­ers me, and I can­not find the rea­son­ing behind pledg­ing alle­giance to any­thing but the Lord. The lack of log­ic is appar­ent­ly not enough to keep the Pledge of Alle­giance to the Unit­ed States out of church­es, though. 

If true Chris­tian­i­ty is ever banned in Amer­i­ca (and we’re mov­ing clos­er to that), all the Chris­tians who have pledged their alle­giance to this gov­ern­ment (which Scrip­ture says is ruled by Satan) will be forced to either reject Christ or break their bond. It is bet­ter to make no oath at all than to have to break it.

Yes, I said it, Amer­i­ca is Satan­ic. It can be noth­ing else. God nev­er con­doned a gov­ern­ment of, by, and for the peo­ple. It was the peo­ple who demand­ed a king, and we’re still demand­ing who we want in charge to this day. Will we nev­er learn? God has him­self declared that while the earth is his and the full­ness there­of, the world sys­tems belong to the adver­sary, Satan.

I pledge alle­giance to the Lord, not to a nation whose free­doms are entire­ly depen­dent on major­i­ty rule, not the unchang­ing absolute truth of the Holy Scriptures.

Okay, so, maybe I could­n’t wait for that rant. Fire­works are fun to watch, though, even if they were play­ing war-glo­ri­fy­ing patri­ot­ic coun­try songs the whole time.
