“Christian Nation” Quickie

jarilissima

I see a lot of bloggers wondering why the United States has been called a Christian nation, since not all the founding fathers were devout Christians.

Long story short, it’s better if you think of the U.S. as a nation based on biblical principles.

You see, Jesus came along and made everybody equal. The good news was for both Jew and Gentile, for everyone!

Before this biblical precedent, kings and royalty were considered closer to God based solely on their status.* As a peasant, you weren’t as close to God as kings.

And in ancient Egypt, rulers were considered gods by their culture.**

So, it helps to think of the United States as having biblical principles, which were unique at the time, instead of it being a Christian nation.

I hope that helps!
