A Fourth of July Reminder

A Fourth of July Reminder July 4, 2011
1. Jesus was not an American. He was a Palestinian Jew.

2. America is not, and was not, God’s chosen country. Israel was.

3. Jesus was not a capitalist, and didn’t endorse our economic system.

4. Jesus was not patriotic. His was a heavenly, not earthly, kingdom.

5. God’s Word and patriotism do NOT go hand in hand. I call bullshit.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! I hope you have an enjoyable holiday! Just please, please, please don’t mix your patriotism with your religious beliefs! It doesn’t do either any good!
