I get really confused with the term, "Christian nation". I really don't know what that's supposed to mean. I mean, what does a Christian nation look like? How does a Christian nation reflect Christ's teachings? What role does the "freedom of religion" play in a Christian nation? What theology does a Christian nation prescribe to?
I believe that God is too big to be reflected by a single nation... or even many nations for that matter. No nation can really represent God. God tried that once before, and it didn't work too well. One of the great things about God's gift to us in Jesus Christ is that there is no longer a nation where God is manifested. Instead, He becomes manifested in the individual, and in a larger scale, the church.
When you hear the words, "Christian nation", what do you think of?
