I think I'll pass

Pass that is, on the American Patriot's Bible. Now it's not that I'm unpatriotic--though in truth I'm not very patriotic. It's just that as a Christian I am a citizen of a different kingdom--and just an alien and a pilgrim in this land, as wonderful as it is, was, or might become. I am certainly grateful that I do not have to worry about persecution, but I don't believe that the United States was founded by Christians, is or ever was or should ever be a Christian Nation, is One Nation Under God, or is a nation that trusts in God. Nor do I care all that much. Some, but not much. As Christians what is of primary importance is how we live. Not our country, or its creeds, laws and institutions.
