  • “Can America be a ‘Christian nation?’ What does the Bible say about that?”—Ray

    The nation may, in its corporate actions, demonstrate evidence of some sort of Christian ethos; e.g., care for the poor, oppressed, sick and dispossessed, and a generous response to conquered enemies. Furthermore, there are many good people in the United States who live by the golden rule.
    It is also possible that some of the founders, Christian in orientation or even in genuine faith, hoped to imbue the new nation with values that were consistent with their faith.
    But strictly speaking, America cannot be a Christian nation. For Christians, Jesus is at the core of their faith.
    The founders, as it happens, rarely spoke of Jesus. They used terms like “Almighty God” or “nature’s God” but were reticent to refer to Jesus.
    When redactors of history claim that the founders intended America to be a “Christian nation,” they fail to explain why Jesus is not in the founding documents.
    The founders, in fact, were very clear on the idea that the nation would be secular, establishing no single religion as the state religion.

  • “Is there a biblical model for how Christians should think about war?” — Katrina

    The Old Testament, of course, is rife with examples of war in which the enemy of God’s people is to be utterly wiped out (Deut. 20:16-18; Josh. 6:17-21). Some debate exists regarding whether or not the Israelite practice of the “ban” (i.e., “dedicated to God for the purpose of utter destruction”) is any way a justification for modern warfare.
    We will note here only that ancient Hebrew regulations concerning war represent a step forward from surrounding cultures in which wanton marauding and murder were the norm. Such passages do not serve as evidence of God’s approval or preference for killing (see Ex. 20:13).
    The subject is fraught with ambiguities. Argument may be made that Jesus did not forbid the soldier from being a soldier (Matt. 8:5ff; Luke 3:14). He recognized the harsh realities of this broken world with its wars and rumors of war (Matt. 24:6-7).
    Simultaneously, war is always an evil. Conflict is the result of human passions (James 4:1-3) and, in its essence, is not compatible with Christian life.
    So, there are principles that guide Christian thought in this arena.

  • What does the Bible say about clothing and what is appropriate dress for Christians?

    Clothing is a big deal and has been in ancient and modern societies alike.
    The clothing industry is a vast enterprise because our culture encourages people to invest a great deal of time, energy and money in assuring that their wardrobe is up-to-date.
    Well, who doesn’t like nice clothes? Who isn’t concerned, at least a little, with being fashionable?
    The Bible does not provide a specific dress code. As you might guess, numerous Scripture texts go beyond the mention of clothing to address the deeper issues; i.e., the attitude of the heart, outward behavior and character, and matters of faith.
    Jesus cautioned about worrying too much about what you will wear (Mt. 6:25). “There are more important things to consider,” He said. “Trust God to provide what you need.”
    Paul advised women to dress modestly, “with decency and propriety.” Their appearance should reflect their heart and the fact that they worship God. What matters more than outward adornment, he wrote, is that they “dress themselves in good deeds” (1 Ti. 2:9-10).
