Should Christians love their country?
This is an interesting and relevant piece by D. G. Hart about the relationship between Christianity and love of country.
I lean 2K (with some modifications), so Hart’s perspective resonates with me.
However, my conservative impulses also move me to love my mother land and desire to uphold its traditions.
I’d love to hear other thoughts from readers on this issue, if you are so inclined.
