Is Patriotism Idolatry?

Posted by soldierservant on May 19, 2009

This is right on. I like Chuck Baldwin but I feel like he gets into this
idolatry. I have been guilty of patriotism myself. Even up till fairly
recently I had gotten all kinds of patriotic shirts and hats. For a
while it was all the affordable clothing I could find. Well praise God I
finally find regular clothing affordable. God has been dealing with me
not to wear the idolatrous clothing. Since I am realizing that
everything I used to believe in is a lie I am having to make all kinds
of life changes. I even had some misconceptions concerning the music
scene. Yes there are idolatrous apostate christian bands but there are
still some great ones. There was a foreign christian metal band that had
sown seeds of truth that has helped me wake up to the realization of
americanism idolatry. Their lyrics pointed out the difference between
man’s freedom and God’s freedom and that the Statue of Liberty was an
idol. That was back in the late 90’s. Even though that took a while that
really sank in. It is amazing that sometimes we need the perspective of
outsiders to perceive how we really are as a nation. America is not just
only about greed but about pride too. People better wake up because
Jesus said that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the
Pharisees you will surely not enter his kingdom (Matt.5:20). Well the
average american apostates are actually worse than the Pharisees because
even the Pharisees observed the true sabbath. I believe it will be worse
for the modern apostate than the Pharisees of Jesus’ time.
