The Gospel of the Kingdom announced by Jesus is a message of hope and joy for men and women in every nation.
I have observed that many Christians associate “Christianity” with certain nations and political ideologies, especially so-called western “civilization.” This contradicts the universal message of the biblical faith, indeed, perverts it.
Is the Good News of the Kingdom of God a message of hope that is reserved only for SOME nations, or is it for all?
I admit that over the years I have grown increasingly annoyed at the tendency of some Christians, perhaps far too many, to associate, conflate and even identify the Christian faith with their nation and culture. Apparently, certain nations are more privileged than others before the Almighty. But all such notions are contradicted by the gospel proclaimed by Jesus and his apostles.
