American Christian Identity Crisis

“There are two opposite spirits that have been operative within American Christianity since the beginning of this nation. One is submission. The other is revolution. The one was learned from Jesus, the other from the Enlightenment. This dual spirit explains how guns, the military, soldiering, and Old Glory are virtual sacraments in the life of the American Church. In fact, the average Christian may be more moved to tears by these symbols than they are by baptism, the broken bread and poured out wine, and the preaching of the cross.” – Rance Darity
