As an immigrant from the awful country of Venezuela, I have loved the U.S.A since I came here in 2000. As far back as I can remember, my family used to come here to the States to vacation, at least once a year. I dreaded leaving every single time, which was why I did not hesitate one bit when my mother told me we were moving. On the contrary, I said, “Let’s move right now!”
However, the more I am surrounded with those who call themselves Christians and lovers of this great nation, I have come to realize that there is a deep idolatry that has permeated those who would be considered a part of the Religious Right. This idol has been a huge encumbrance in our efforts to heal and restore this great nation.
What is the idol? America.
Christians today either don’t care about the happenings of society at all or, if they do, they begin to quote the Constitution and our Founding Fathers instead of the Bible and the Christ. The Constitution, possibly the greatest founding document in the history of the world, is still a man-made piece of paper that even grants the people permission to change it (Article V). The Founding Fathers, as wise as they were, were still fallen men and some would not even be considered men of valor by our standards today.
On the other hand, we have the Word of God which does not change and will never change (1 Peter 1:23). A document inspired by the very hand of our Blessed Creator that has withstood the test of time and has been proven prophetically, historically, and spiritually in the lives of the saints across the world.
