[I preface this post by stating that I know that there are Christians who are in the service, or who are in some way associated with patriotism. However that doesn’t void the truth that patriotism is evil].
The patriotic expression “in God we trust,” is referencing an imaginary god that’s nothing more than a prop for the cause of man’s wicked pride.
This is because the risen Lord Jesus Christ is side-stepped for a one-size-fits-all god.
9 “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
11 For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
“Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.”
All glory to the risen Lord Jesus Christ, and no glory to us whatsoever.
