Why, Church? (Are We So Nationalistic?)
Rev. Thomas G. James
March 21, 2022
Jesus was often critical of the Pharisees, but perhaps never is he as critical as he is about their focus on Jerusalem. The nationalistic focus around Jerusalem becomes a major critique of Jesus. The apostle Paul picked up on this critique when calling us to claim our citizenship in heaven. Why, Church, are so in bed with American nationalism?
