Incredibly, there are people in America who stubbornly hold on to the idea that America is a Christian nation. The evidence against such a claim is staggering, ranging from the pages of the New Testament to the everyday pages of our newspapers, magazines, and websites.
One example is our nation’s tolerance of human trafficking, and the encouragement of the greed and lust that fuels that vile trade. Another example, and the focus of this short post, is our tolerance of abortion, and the quiet acceptance of the murder and destruction of more than 45 million babies since abortion was legalized in January 1973. And what fuels this vile trade? Again, greed, lust, and let’s add racism to the mix.
My point, then, is how can anyone who lives in such a country and is a denying, passive participant in these horrors think that a country that legalizes and encourages the ripping, slicing, and suctioning of babies from their mothers’ wombs — more than 3,000 times every day — continue to think that America is a Christian nation? It isn’t.

Until we acknowledge that we do not live in a Christian nation, it’s my opinion that the Gospel will not have much of an effect in America. Why? Because those who deny they are sick will not go to a doctor. Once, when Jesus was hanging out with a group of “sinners,” the Pharisees questioned his choice of company, and Jesus said to them,
Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick [do]. Go and learn what this means, ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.
