Patriotic Nation

The posts I will be sharing in the next few days are from another blog I started in 2007.  I moved it to wordpress as a blog by the same name.  I am endeavoring to downsize so I am moving this one through a copy and paste method.  From April 19, 2007.

Patriotic Nation
There are many who have called the United States of America a Patriotic Nation. I believe her to be so myself. If we mean by patriotic that we stand by our nations leaders when they send our troops to war. We are pretty much patriotic. If we mean by patriotic that we love our country, then, I again would agree.
Our nation is, however, a nation that is straying from its godly, Biblical, Christian roots. Whether we all agree or not the United States of America was started upon these principles which began with the Bible.
There are some, and that number is growing more and more to believe patriotism is greater than faith in God. Patriotism has taken the place of God. When we have gotten to that place then, we are in sure trouble. A patriotic nation without God is just a pagan nation, and its morals, ethics, and family structure fades into oblivion.
I am growing in the opinion that all nations are operated by the godless, including our own. It is powered by “Prince of the power of the air”. It is sad to say. It is sad to think, and this may be a dark, negative thought, but I would rather put patriotism aside and take on godliness. That will be our only hope.
